The String Band from Hell just finished up a year-long gig in Dis, which is why my clothes smell like sulfer. Banjo, mandolin, djembe, fiddlesticks, stand-up bass, acoustic guitar, lap steel & vocal stylings. Note: Play this one very, very loud.
Cold Rain Water
Sky so dark, and the red-winged blackbird is
sitting on a wire trying to make it through--
bird on the wire in the cold rain water,
cold rain water like a memory of you.
Gotta get out 'cause I need some whiskey,
need some whiskey just to make it through.
There's nothing in the house but a red-winged blackbird,
old black dog, and a picture of you
Gonna make a list of the things I need--
I'll make a little list 'cause it's what I do.
I'll make a little list, put it down on paper:
1) get some sleep, and 2) forget about you.
