Let's go a drownin in the po man's river

written by J. Trole Taylor

Misering down to a hole in the water my back porch had fallen down raising up an empty cup and failing in the wind blood and water soaked the bread that ate up my last dime shark-infested cities of the blind swing that hammer mine that coal shovel me into the ground poor man's sweat has built that river runnin through an empty town dead-end whiskey butane empire feed the fire and starve the soul everybody's patching glory Legacy of Hell hold me over till tomorrow rain of every kind rusted all the fragments of my mind swing that hammer mine that coal nestle me into the ground poor man's sweat has built that river runnin through an empty town swing that hammer mine that coal won't you shovel me into the ground poor man's sweat has built that river runnin through an empty town I'm on my way I'm on my way

Another Fine Mess
Guttural vocal styling, very cool. great hook. nice one


Blues Music is Truth
A Pounding begins on my head with that big honking drum kit and that funky plunking on the banjo kills me,superb, what a great idea to use this fine old instrument very cool groove happening here , that is keeping it in the pocket. Rootsy to the bone is this tune and those vocals they does rips the flesh right off you with the gritty monotonal vox . do your vocal chords hurt. mine do just listening. The bass is really very complimentary supporting the whole thing, quite melodic even. so cool . Especially love the bridge "on my way" which they go do a cappela at the end of the song.this is actually one of my favs and I have put it up on a couple of other stations. Great song guys.Canadians Rock!
