    After performing at several of Opal Creek's fundraisers and events, I was asked to write a song for the town of Jawbone Flats. I started spending much of my spare time in the old mining town and came up with this song. Thanks to eartrumpetlabs.com , I was able to backpack in a state of the art mobile recording setup and get a quality recording of the song in the town of Jawbone. Video and much of the song's inspiration by the wonderful, Grace Boehm.

    came riding from the north town
    just east of wayward city
    where all the folks talk funny
    and they try to take your money
    but now I'm walking down main street
    in the ole mine town of 1929

    looking up for sacred rock
    Mars makes me feel funny
    Saturn's high there's Jupiter
    and can I taste your honey
    now I'm not far from main street
    but I'm way far out from anywhere but here

    saw my old friend Douglas Fir
    man I love your bark
    I'm a lichen you you're a lichen me
    picking berries in the dark
    now I'm lost in The Vortex
    and I don't care if I ever make it out

    Went down to the phib (amphibian) pond
    caught myself a newt
    I held her close then let her go
    'cause they just might kill you
    like the ore men left the water out
    one crawled inside and they never made it home

    caught on a line between the things you love
    and the things you're supposed to do
    no one's there to guide you home
    but you got maps and compasses to view

    no gold dust in the creek bed
    no silver in the hill
    they dug the dirt they blew it out
    now the trees they get to chill
    just swaying with their families
    with their roots held tight as the owl sings good night Show less
