lyrics

We came into this world to try to make a new life
little darlin' I think I fucked it up
worked my ruddy English fingers down to the bone
til I spent up all we had of luck
you're looking at me looking at you
we're seeing each other in a whole new light
looks a lot like food

Well I think I'm gonna cash it in
won't be long now
what you gonna do when I'm gone?
I'd do the same to you
right or wrong, little darlin'
what you gonna do with me when I'm gone?

They told us that God watches over the righteous
well I don't believe in God no more
the king up on his hill in merry old England
just a gold-painted whore
my skinny little lambs need to be fed
let's bow our heads and pray for daily bread

Well I think I'm gonna cash it in
won't be long now
what you gonna do when I'm gone?
I'd do the same to you
right or wrong, little darlin'
what you gonna do with me when I'm gone?

One hundred poor souls died in the crossing
two hundred more down here
I lie awake all night and dream of what was wasted
and I tremble in fear
the sun sets red on this cursed land
it's dog eat dog eat man eat man

Well I think I'm gonna cash it in
won't be long now
what you gonna do when I'm gone?
I'd do the same to you
right or wrong, little darlin'
what you gonna do with me when I'm gone?

about

PK Gregory Cottonwood, Arizona

Combine a wickedly iconoclastic songwriting bent with country-blues fingerstyle guitar, harp, vocals, and foot percussion, and you've got a whole new conversation. Call it Honkabilly Blues, a deviously intelligent cross-breed of honky-tonk, blues, and folk, with a rockabilly edge. ... more
