recorded live at the "This & That Cafe" series at Super Deluxe, Tokyo, on April 22, 2011. Here I'm playing stick dulcimer and stompbox

NOT ANYWHERE ANYMORE

i put down the phone
left a bag of cookies on the corner
filled my brain with a soft white light
sent all my 8-track tapes
to my cousin down in mississippi
took my foot off the pedal and gave up the fight

i'm not anywhere anymore...

my daddy looked at me funny
just before he turned into smoke
and the people along the riverbank
scattered like mist
the floodwaters carried away my bass drum
my pencil and my favorite hat
the clock stopped ticking
as i unclenched my fist

i'm not anywhere anymore...

don't come looking to find me
unless you really know your way around thin air
let the shadows of the branches in the wind
serve as your memory of me
see 'em dancing there , see 'em dancing there

so i'm sorry babe to take you by surprise
with this little change of plan
but i'm tired of being blown 'round
like a tumble weed
i'm not looking for answers, lucky numbers
or keys to the kingdom
ain't a damn thing in this world that i want or need

i'm not anywhere anymore...
