natureboy Well done for a first coming out record of blues & country especially on different unprocessed song combinations between Ariel on vocals & Jordan maybe on guitars, lap steel, bass, drums/percussion, vocals & harmonies (very talented musician). Ariel puts out a forceful assertive energy (expressing thoughts, feelings & beliefs in direct, honest & appropriate ways) which spreads out through the whole record. Tracks that also stand out for me are 04, 05, 09, 03 & 10. Favorite track: No Sleep.

NO SLEEP

Well i bin' up before rooster well before the day is dawn
Yeah i bin up before roster well before the day is dawn
No ain't got a wink

I wish i could sleep right through the day
I wish i could sleep right through the day
Oh but i cant do that little girl

Oh lord help me sleep
Oh lord lay me down
Oh lord close my eyes
…Wheres my baby now

Well i bin' up before rooster well before the day is dawn
Yeah i bin up before roster well before the day is dawn
No ain't got a wink

If you see if you see my baby round down town
If you see oh if u see my baby round down town
Then send her right back home to me
Coz only she can put me down

Oh lord help me sleep

Oh lord close my eyes

I can't stand my oh knees are growing weak
No i cant go on, not less i get some sleep
You see tied on being lonely
N' seein' you struttin' round the streets

Oh lord help me sleep
Oh lord lay me down
Oh lord close my eyes
...Wheres my baby now
Track Name: Dawn of Night
DAWN OF NIGHT

This is the night
When the old wives tell
Tales of those who rode this way before them
Keeping nothing new
Borrowed, old and blue

This is the night
The night it dawned
It dawned
That night
It dawned on me

What in the world
Came before
The crowned me with a thorn
Cut my skin and let the poison in
What happens then my fates to win
If that's the deal i made i made a very grave mistake


This is the night
The night it dawned
It dawned
That night
It dawned on me

This is the night
When the old wives tell
Tales of those who rode this way before them
Keeping nothing new
Borrowed, old and blue

This is the night
The night it dawned
It dawned
That night
It dawned on me
Track Name: In My Girlish Days
IN MY GIRLISH DAYS

Late hours at night, trying to play my hand
Through my window, out stepped a man
I didn't know no better
Oh boys
In my girlish days

My mama cried, papa did, too
Oh, daughter, look what a shame on you
I didn't know no better
Oh boys
In my girlish days

I flagged a train, didn't have a dime
Trying to run away from that home of mine
I didn't know no better
Oh boys
In my girlish days

I hit the highway, flagged me a truck
Nineteen and seventeen, when the winter was tough
I didn't know no better
Oh boys
In my girlish days

All of my playmates is not surprised,
I had to travel 'fore I got wise
I found out better
And I still got my girlish ways
Track Name: I Got To Move

Track Name: Liquor & Sin
LIQUOR & SIN

There's a hole in my soul where the lord should be

Oh if you didn' know'm then you can let'm in now
won't take long 'n your heaven bound

There's a hole in my soul where the lord should be

No it ain't too late you can let'm i n now
There ain't one so bad he had turned down

Oh i know that devil man gon' come for me
Coz there's a hole in my soul where the lord should be

I dun fill that hole with liquor and sin

You can drink your fill you can play your hand
But it won't lead you to the promised land

I dun fill that hole with liquor and sin

You can play your hand, you can drink your fill
But you won't make right until

Oh oh i know that reaper gon' come draw me in
Coz i dun fill that hole with liquor and sin

There's a hole in my soul where the lord should be

No it ain't too late you can let'm in now
There ain't one so bad he had turned down

There's a hole in my soul where the lord should be

No it ain't too late you can let'm in now
There ain't one so bad he had turned down

I don't got no faith to set my spirit free
Coz there's a hole in my soul where the lord should be
Track Name: Washing In the River
WASHING IN THE RIVER

The mud waned banks seemed to wander by
While pushed along on rushes ride
And he sang
He sang of his woe

The weather comes fair and the weather comes foe
Say he's powerful fond of the too and fro
And he sang
He sang of his woe

Say'n no mount'a washin' in the river gonna cleanse this soul

It take more nerve than can stand a man
To read aloud when he's dealt his hand
So he sang
He sang of his woe

Singing don't play hooky with a pole cat swinging
On a midnight barge coz you'll end up swimming
For broke
And he sang
He sang of his woe

Its a sad thing thinking on a boat whats sinking
What a wretch he made of the things god give him
With nothing to show
He sang
He sang of his woe
Say'n no mount-a washin' in the river gonna cleanse this soul
Wanna mend all my ills for i get too old

The mud waned banks seems to heave and sigh
As he passed and loosed his cry
He sang
He sang of his woe
Say'n no mount'a washin' in the river gonna cleanse… this… soul…

No washing in the river won't save this soul
Wanna mend my ill's for i get too old
And I'll Be bathing long
No washing in the river won't save this soul

Washing in the river won't cleanse my soul
Mend my ills for i get too old
If my sins run out, no the banks won't hold
So i tried my luck on a white-wash post
Drove the nails home with the savior ghost
No washing in the river won't save this soul

Washing in the river won't cleanse this soul
Gotta mend my ill's for i get too old
Its a sad thing thinking on a boat whats sinking
What a wretch he made of the things god give him
No washing in the river won't save my soul

No mount'a washing in the river gona' cleanse this….
Track Name: Mound Booze House
MOUND BOOZE HOUSE

Shot down the bayou
And one sad soul laying dead

I sent word to save myself
And you sent for my head

Had you a message
But i forgot to rite it down

Well that suits me coz i can't read
On in the ground face down

Shots down the bayou
As i reach for my gun

I'a told you lonely man
that your days are done

Listen to me here
I got no immediate plan

Well I'm liable to cut you neck
Coz this my home long loving land

I know that violence for
Too long has been my cure
I see they brought a... shot for me… yeah

Shot on down the bayou
I heard that sound before

Shot down on the bayou
I heard that sound before
Yeah i heard the sound before
Track Name: Its a Blessing
IT'S A BLESSING

I am marching every day,
I'm meeting trials on my way
Short of blessings but I'm going on
Just the same.

Folks complaining On every side,
Except me, Lord, I'm satisfied.
It's a blessing just to call
My savior's name.

I don't worry And I don't fret
Not so easy To Forget
I just pray, And count my blessings
Every day.

If misfortune break my heart,
I just take it For my part
It's a blessing just to call
My Savior's name.

It's a blessing just to live
It's a blessing just to give
It's a blessing to be present
In this land.

Matters not how bad at first
Just remember, it could be worse,
It's a blessing just to call
My Savior's name.

Folks complaining On every side,
Except me, Lord, I'm satisfied.
It's a blessing just to call
My savior's name.
Track Name: Nobody's Fault But Mine
NO BODY'S FAULT BUT MINE

Nobody's fault but mine,
Nobody's fault but mine
If I don't read it my soul be lost

I have a bible in my home,
I have a bible in my home
If I don't read it my soul be lost

Mmm, father he taught me how to read,
Father he taught me how to read
If I don't read it my soul be lost, nobody's fault but mine

Ah, I have a bible of my own,
I have a bible of my own
If I don't read it my soul be lost

Oh, mother she taught me how to read,
Mother she taught me how to read
If I don't read it my soul be lost, nobody's fault but mine

Ah, Lord, Lord, nobody's fault but mine
Track Name: Country Home
COUNTRY HOME

An ode
An ode to the lamb
An ode
An ode to the lamb
When all the rock
Turns to sand

A blow
A blow by his hand
A blow
A blow by his hand
The grand might fall
Like any man

Ooooh
Ooooh
Oooooooh

come home
come home when your found
come home come home when your found
the pains will ease
on this familiar ground
