about

First single off upcoming album, Hot Chicken, out soon.

lyrics

Lay me down by the river
When the river’s through with me
And stay around to deliver
A half-assed eulogy
I take a round for my liver
And one for each of my kidneys
And pray we drown all our shivers
Fore the daylight comes for thee

Yea I know it’s gonna come for me
Like the water flow unto the sea
I'll be washed out with all the other debris

(but until that time, man, you’ll find me)
Riding the river, Chicago down to New Orleans
Riding the River, Chicago down to New Orleans

A-riding blind is always better
And the spirits help to keep the tune
On the line, designed with gold and leather
And stained by the tobacco moon
I done my time, grinding out the weather
I reckon by my brass spittoon
But surviving’s gotta mind to take forever
And the floods be on the rise too soon

Yea I know it’s gonna come for me
Like the water flow unto the sea
I'll be washed out with all the other debris

(but until that time, man, you’ll find me)
Riding the river, Chicago down to New Orleans
Riding the River, Chicago down to New Orleans
