She liked bad boys and Hip hop music She's goin' to preparatory She's daddy's debutante Louis Vuitton on her shoulder Plastic Full So the fun never stops Get some cocaine Meet me in the Bathroom Lock the Door We'll talk talk talk Day after Day We can run We can run Faster than the rain Your stupid smile Gets me in trouble Your dumb ideas Sound good when I Do not complain About the good times Shit goes south I'm with you at least Day after Day We can run We can run Faster than the rain Day after day Bombs away We can run Faster than the rain Day after day She left a note by my bedside I read it six times This is what it said Day after Day We can not run We can not run Faster than the rain Day after Day Beautiful Decay We can not run Faster than the rain Do not Return If you don't love me I could not look into your eyes And think that you don't care

You can find me high on a mountain Lonesome as it gets you can find me down by the river Wash away my regrets If I die with my eyes open I might finally be awake You can find me heavy loaded momma spare me another day you can find me down in the holler screamin' my blues away If I die with my eyes open I might finally be awake draw the curtain put out the light but don't you lower my dyin eyes Money want's money Every day Penny's from heaven Never Came my way I'm the poor boy Lives over the hill Don't think I might As much as I will If I die with my eyes open I might finally be awake

She tore my heart like a tiger Just by walkin' away Left it beatin' on the jungle floor I told that woman Before I hit the ground Come back to you're daddy once more She said "Oh no I'm sorry but I ain't gonna fall for that!" "I'm tellin' you da truth as plain as day!" "You a sweet man Poppa, but you'll just make me cry." My heart stopped beatin' when she took her love away Now I walk these streets Vacant look in my eye Hole in my soul the size of kingdom come Gotta little hope in my pocket A tall drink in my hand A sweet little rider who don't care where I'm from Gotta forget you woman But I see you every where See you every time I close my eyes Wish ol' death would come get me And put me in the ground Hell right now would feel like paradise Come on and get me! She tore my heart like a tiger Just by walkin' away Left it beatin' on the jungle floor I told that woman Before I hit the ground Come back to you're daddy once more

Your cold eyes tell a story There is crime There is murder There are sermons to preach Long ago my yesterdays Memories have teeth and the flesh is weak Yes it's oh so weak But I've got love In my veins I got love in my veins I got love in my veins And many many other things The stars in my eyes Number more that the sky My wasteland My Graceland My cancer My only dancer Memories have teeth and the flesh is weak Yes it's oh so weak But I've got love In my veins I got love in my veins I got love in my veins And many many other things I see you brought that sugar to lay on my grave Hoping for rain so that I might taste it That I might taste it It's Flowers and Nicotine I gave that one a ring I'm on my back again I drown as I try to sing that I got love in my veins I got love in my veins And many many other things If I do not go crazy It surly means I am not sane Everyone I know seems strange I got love in my veins I got love in my veins And many many other things I got love in my veins I got love in my veins And many many other things

about

This album is what Swampcandy would sound like if money was not a concern. It features new elements like a choir, five pice horn section, drums, middle eastern instruments, guest male and female vocals, fiddle and square neck dobro. It was captured and mixed by what two of the best guys in the business. It was Mastered for full definition in the low end. There is a game "Swampcandyland" that is a companion art piece to this collection available at live shows for a reasonable price. If you must have it it will be available on the website as well but shipping will be expensive.

Swampcandy Annapolis, Maryland

Swampcandy is pig drinkin’, whiskey eatin’, foot clapping’, hand stompin’, American music. Fermented in primitive blues, pre war folk sounds, field hollers, gypsy jazz, and ragtime. Steeped in influences from Robert Johnson to Radiohead. Their sound is distilled in a boiler of mercurial energy that swirls with tempo changes and dynamic peaks and valleys, holding the ear and refusing to let go. ... more
