so I will roll & I will suffer, curse the soil & curse the stones

Pourin’ liquor on the stone / That marks my lost and gone / Well I will whimper and wail / And sing her funeral song / Well she said kiss me / And lord I listened / But I haven’t gone back since / I curse the mind for building proper fence (Shakey Graves)

Mary Queen of Arkansas, it’s not too early for dreamin’ / The sky is grown with cloud seed sown and a bastard’s love can be redeeming …

I got contacts deep in Mexico where the servants have been seen (Bruce Springsteen)

Here’s a little story from last summer because I’m on the road for a couple of days. Need a new horizon. Need sleep. Need a new wind to blow my mind. See you soon, folks.

All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.


still, somehow, those ditches took the better part of me

From the sky the highway’s straight as it could be / A string pulled tight from home to Tennessee / Still, somehow, those ditches took the better part of me / From the sky, the highway’s straight as it could be / Take my hand baby, we’re over land / I know flying over water makes you cry / Been in the sky so long, seems like the long way home / But I can’t for the life of me say why / Did we leave our love behind (Jason Isbell)
