songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

whisper beautiful secrets into the drainpipes at night

For soon the morning sun will rise / And this little town will open up its eyes / And return from the land where I’ve never been / From a Sleepy-town, that’s free / From all that rainy-rainy-rain falls down / The cool rainy-rain upon my head / Make the river overflow it’s banks / And wash my cares away to Sleepy-town (Jim White)

every evening find me moanin’, I’m alone & cryin’ the blues

Every Morning find me moanin’ / Cause of all the trouble I see / Life’s a loosing gamble to me / Cares and woes have got me moanin’ / Every evening find me moanin’ / I’m alone and cryin’ the blues / I’m so tired of payin’ these dues / Everybody knows I’m moanin’ / Lord, I spend plenty of days and nights alone with my grief / But I pray, really and truely pray, somebody will come and make me believe (Charles Mingus)

slow down this train, slow down the iron that runs in my veins

But No kept her name / No got so quiet, she put out her flame / But Faith stayed the same / Faith came around with that smile on his face the next day / He said, follow me down / Follow me down with your pick and your plow / I can hear you tap tapping at my kitchen door / I can hear the river run and the river want more / Don’t you know, I am already sure / I can hear you standing quiet at my kitchen door (Wolf Larsen)
