lyrics

THOSE PALMS WERE WAVING WHEN HE RODE IN FRI
KEEP RIDING STRAIGHT ON AIMING FOR THAT NEEDLES EYE
ROBES RESTING ON THE WIND AND STREAMING WHITE
OH MY JERUSALEM WE'LL PARTY TONIGHT

SAY TO THE HILLS FALL ON US TODAY
IN THE DRY WOOD THEY PRAY

MY GOD IT'S LOOKING LIKE RAIN TONIGHT
A MAN WITH ANY SENSE AT ALL WOULD STAY INSIDE
BUT SOMETHING IN BREATHING ON THE STREET ALRIGHT
& I'LL BE DAMMED IF I AM GONNA MISS THIS RIDE

MORE THAN A LOT BUT NOT ENOUGH TO SAVE
GOTTA GO ALL THE WAY SAY
HEY HEY LET HIM PAY - WE WILL DRINK BLOOD TODAY
HEY HEY WHO IS HE. LET THE HAMMER FALL ON FEET

WORDS OF THE KING OF KINGS AND STEEL GREY EYES
NOT ENOUGH TO CHANGE THAT OL' PILATE'S MIND
THOSE ARE THE DARKEST CLOUDS I'VE EVER SEEN
IF I'M MISTAKEN THEY ARE HEADED THIS WAY
SAY TO THE HILLS, FALL ON US TODAY
IN THE DRY WOOD, THEY PRAY
MORE THAN A LOT BUT NOT ENOUGH TO SAVE
GOTTA GO ALL THE WAY, SAY
HEY HEY LET HIM PAY - WE WILL DRINK BLOOD TODAY
HEY HEY WHO IS HE. LET THE HAMMER FALL ON FEET

WELL I GIVE YOU LOVE AND YOU STEAL IT
I HEAL BUT YOU DON'T FEEL IT
I CALL THE BEASTS OUT FROM THE WILD
KINGS THEY FEAR ME AS A CHILD
BUT I'LL LAY IT DOWN DESPITE IT
CAUSE YOU KNOW NOT WHAT YOUR FIGHTIN'
YOU TURN ME IN BUT I'M GONNA WIN
IT WILL END TONIGHT

Son of a cowboy & raised on old country & gospel, maybe the flavor should have presented itself earlier. But from his years concentrated in the ‘indie’ scene, he’s now presenting a true & unique “Nu-Folk” style. His band, The Make Believe is an rotating, international cast ... more
