TREES OF HEAVEN

BORIS McCUTCHEON

WHO CUT DOWN THE TREES OF HEAVEN?  WHO CUT DOWN THE TREES OF HEAVEN?  

I DID, I DID

 

WHO CHOPPED DOWN THE CHINESE ELMS?  WHO CHOPPED   DOWN THE CHINESE ELMS?

I DID, I DID

 

WHEN I DONE IT, IT FELT GOOD, CAUSE I LET THE SUNSHINE IN, AND I GAVE MY PEACHES A FIGHTING CHANCE TO WIN

 

NOW WHO’S GONNA FELL THE ORANGE MAN?  WHO’S GONNA FELL THE ORANGE MAN?

WE WILL, WE WILL

 

WHO’S GONNA SEND THE DEVIL PENCE, BACK TO HELL FOREVER HENCE?  

WE WILL, WE WILL

 

WHEN WE DONE IT FELT GOOD, CAUSE WE LET THE SUNSHINE IN, AND WE GAVE OUR KIDS A FIGHTING CHANCE TO WIN

 

WHO DROVE OUT THE MONEY CHANGERS?  WHO DROVE OUT THE MONEY CHANGERS?

HE DID, HE DID

 

JESUS IS MY SUNBEAM, JESUS IS MY SUNBEAM

AMEN, AMEN

 

WHEN HE DONE IT IT FELT GOOD CAUSE HE LET THE SUNSHINE IN AND HE GAVE MANKIND A FIGHTING CHANCE TO WIN

 

NOW WHO TORE DOWN THE BORDER WALL?  WHO TORE DOWN THE BORDER WALL?

WE DID, WE DID

 

WHO GAVE MARIA A DRINK OF WATER? WHO GAVE MARIA A DRINK OF WATER?

WE DID, WE DID

 

WHEN WE DONE IT IT FELT GOOD CAUSE WE LET THE SUNSHINE IN AND WE GAVE THE POOR A FIGHTING CHANCE TO WIN 

 

WHO SHOT THE DRONE FROM THE SKY SHOT IT THROUGH IT CRYSTAL EYE? 

I DID, I DID

 

WHO HUNG THE TIRE FROM THE BOSQUE TREE?  WHO HUNG THE TIRE FROM THE BOSQUE TREE?

I DID, I DID

 

WHEN I DONE IT IT FELT GOOD CAUSE I LET THE SUNSHINE IN AND I GAVE MY KIDS A FIGHTING CHANCE TO SWING

 

MY ORCHARD LADDER RINGS LIKE A BELL, MY ORCHARD LADDER RINGS LIKE A BELL

ONLY GOD CAN TELL,  ONLY GOD CAN TELL

 

WHO SEES THROUGH YOUR TATTERS CLOTHES AND KNOWS THE COLORS OF YOUR SOUL?

HE DOES, HE DOES

 

AND WHEN HE DOES IT IT FEELS GOOD CAUSE HE LETS THE SUNSHINE IN AND HE GIVES  YOUR LIGHT A FIGHTING CHANCE TO WIN

 

WHO CUT DOWN THE TREES OF HEAVEN?  WHO CUT DOWN THE TREES OF HEAVEN?  

I DID, I DID

 

WHO CHOPPED DOWN THE CHINESE ELMS?  WHO CHOPPED   DOWN THE CHINESE ELMS?

I DID, I DID

 

WHEN I DONE IT, IT FELT GOOD, CAUSE I LET THE SUNSHINE IN, AND I GAVE MY PEACHES A FIGHTING CHANCE TO WIN

DREAMIN' AND WORKIN'

BARD EDRINGTON V

THESE HANDS OF MINE ARE STRONG, STRONG LIKE AN OAK TREE, THEY HOLD LIFE AND TAKE LIFE AND FEED YOU AND ME

 

I LEARNED AS A YOUNG MAN, MY FATHER TAUGHT ME, HE SAID ”BUILD WHAT YOU CAN, TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY”

 

DOWN IN ALABAMA, NEAR TUSKEGEE, WE WORKED LIKE GROWN MEN, LAUGHING AND CARE FREE

 

WITH NED WE BUILT A BRIDGE, ACROSS THAT CYPRESS SWAMP, THROUGH THE PALMETTOS ON THE ISLAND, THAT’S WHERE WE WOULD ROMP

 

I’M DREAMIN’ WHEN IM WORKIN’ AND WORKIN’ IN MY DREAMS

ITS A LONG WAY DOWN, MUCH FURTHER THAN IT SEEMS

 

I’M DREAMIN’ WHEN IM WORKIN’ AND WORKIN’ IN MY DREAMS

AS I STAND ON THIS BRANCH, I’LL BEND IN THE BREEZE

 

CRACKED HANDS BRUISED KNUCKLES OUT OF WHICH BLEED, THE THINGS THAT I WANT AREN’T ALWAYS WHAT I NEED

 

SO SON LIVE YOUR DREAMS, BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE, YOUR YOUNG AND FREE TO CREATE YOUR REALITY

 

I SHALL LEAVE HAVING ENTERED A WORLD OF MORTALITY, EVERYTHING I’VE LEFT, IT SHALL SET ME FREE

 

SO HANDS DON’T FAIL ME KNOW, I’M RELYING ON THE, TO KEEP ME FROM FALLING OUT OF THIS TREE

 

I’M DREAMIN’ WHEN IM WORKIN’ AND WORKIN’ IN MY DREAMS

ITS A LONG WAY DOWN, MUCH FURTHER THAN IT SEEMS

 

I’M DREAMIN’ WHEN IM WORKIN’ AND WORKIN’ IN MY DREAMS

AS I STAND ON THIS BRANCH, ILL BEND IN THE BREEZE

SINGING GRASS

BORIS McCUTCHEON

ALONG THE GREEN RIVER, I DUELED FOR A LASS, HER NAME WAS SINGING GRASS

AND WHEN THE SMOKE LIFTED THE FRENCHMAN HAD PASSED AND I WON MY SINGING GRASS

 

ALTHOUGH I FAILED TO SPELL, I COULD SPEAK HER LANGUAGE WELL, AND I SPOKE WITH HER KIN FOR A WHILE

 

I TOLD THEM I WAS DYING AND MY HEART WAS BEATING FAST, FOR THE WOMAN NAMED SINGING GRASS

 

WE MARRIED IN THE ASPEN WHEN THE SPRING TIME WAS LAUGHING AND THE FAWNS TOTTERED IN THE WOODS

 

OVER THE GREAT MOUNTAINS WHERE NO WHITE MAN WONDERED, WHEREVER THE TRAPPING WAS GOOD

 

WE SET TRAPS TOGETHER ON THE EDGE OF A RIVER, AND I WRAPPED HER IN A GOLDEN PELT

 

AND YOU’LL NEVER KNOW HOW COMPLETE I FELT WHEN I WON MY SINGING GRASS

 

PICKING WILD GRAPES IN THE FALL WE DIDN’T HAVE A CARE AT ALL AND I WENT TO TOWN AND TRADED FOR SOME BEANS

 

SINGING GRASS WHISPERED “WITH YOU CHRIS ITS A DREAM, YOUR MY SUGAR AND YOUR MY CREAM”

 

“I FEEL A LITTEL FAINT, BUT IT’S NOTHING TO FEAR, LETS CONTINUE SALTING THE MEAT”

 

SHE FELL DOWN WITH THE FEVER AT MY FEAT, THE WOMAN NAMED SINGING GRASS

 

LAY DOWN, LAY DOWN, MY SINGING GRASS FOR I CANNOT BARE TO LOSE THE

TWO BABES IN THE CABIN WHITH EYES LIKE YOU AND YOUR FADING LIKE THE DEW

 

I TOOK THE LITTLE GIRLS ON A RIDE TO TOWN AND I BURIED THEIR MOTHER IN THE GROUND 

 

AND YOU’LL NEVER KNOW THE PAIN I FOUND WHEN I LOST MY SINGING GRASS

 

ON THE  BACK OF A MULE 3O YEARS COME TO PASS, NO MAN OR MOUNTAIN COULD KILL ME 

 

AS SHE SANG OVER MY BODY THROUGH THE DESERT AND VALLEYS MY ANGEL SINGING GRASS

 

WELL I MAY BE THE REAPER OF YOUR DESTINY, BUT YOU WOULD NOT HAVE EVER HEARD OF ME 

 

IF HER LIFE HAD BEEN SPARED I’D BE DUST IN THE AIR WITH THE ONE NAMED SINGING GRASS

 

IF HER LIFE HAD BEEN SPARED I’D BE DUST IN THE AIR WITH THE WOMAN NAMED SINGING GRASS

WHISKEY AND A WOODSTOVE

BARD EDRINGTON V

SET ME ON A MOUNTAIN, WITH A JUG IN MY HAND, I’LL DRINK MY WORRIES TO THE PROMISED LAND

 

FOR I’M BOUND TO TURN IT, TURN IT ALL AROUND, OR I’LL LIGHT A MATCH BOYS, BURN IT TO THE GROUND

 

BUT IT WON’T BE NOBODY’S FAULT BUT MY OWN, I CAME OUT THE WEEDS WHEN I WAS GROWN

 

WHISKEY AND A WOODSTOVE, CORN LIQUOR AND GUNS, WELL THE BOTTLES ALL EMPTY, AND THE SONG IS SUNG

 

LIKE A HORSE WITHOUT SHOES, AND NOWHERE TO RUN, WHISKEY AND A WOODSTOVE CORN LIQUOR AND GUNS

 

IM TROUBLE BOUND, THATS WHAT THEY SAY, “THAT BOY HE’S TROUBLE, BEEN IT ALL HIS DAY”

 

I GOT LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE, MOMMA SAYS “PUT IT DOWN.  DON’T LEAVE IT LAYING AROUND SON, YOU’LL BURN THE HOUSE DOWN”

 

BUT IT WONT BE NOBODY’S FAULT BUT MY OWN, I CAME OUT THE WEEDS WHEN I WAS GROWN

 

WHISKEY AND A WOODSTOVE, CORN LIQUOR AND GUNS, WELL THE BOTTLES ALL EMPTY AND THE SONG IS SUNG

 

LIKE A HORSE WITHOUT SHOES, AND NOWHERE TO RUN, WHISKEY AND A WOODSTOVE CORN LIQUOR AND GUNS

FLINT HILLS

BARD EDRINGTON V

OUT OF THE EARTH THAT’S WHERE HE WAS BORN, HE’S WORKING HIS DOGS IN THAT PRAIRE MORN

 

CHASING DOWN THAT OLD WILD HARE, HE CAN HEAR THOSE HOWLS THROUGH THOSE FLINT HILLS

 

LONG DARK HAIR AND FARM GIRL CURVES, SHE’S PRAYING OVER HER SOLDIER WHO’S WAITING ON HER PRESERVES, 

 

WAITING FOR THAT OLD TRAIN TO COME, LONG DOWN THE TRACKS IN MORGANTON

 

IN THE FLINT HILLS, IN THE FLINT HILLS

 

FOUR KIDS ON THE GROUND AND DOGS IN THE YARD, THEY NEVER KNEW LIFE COULD BE SO HARD

 

HUNGRY MOUTHS TO FEED THE WHOLE DAY THRU, BUT THAT’S WHAT KANSAS DOES TO YOU

IN THE FLINT HILLS, IN THE FLINT HILLS

 

OFF TO THE SOUTH TO MAKE A FRESH START, WHERE THE TREES TOUCH THE GROUND AND THE WATER’S FILLED WITH SALT 

 

AND THE SWEAT, WHEN IT ROLLS, IT ROLLS IN THE NIGHT, THEY CAN’T HEAR THOSE HOWLS THAT THEY LEFT BEHIND

 

IN THE FLINT HILLS, IN THE FLINT HILLS

 

RUNNING THROUGH THE SWAMPS CHASING THAT OLD WILD BOAR, LIFE’S BEEN GOOD THEY CAN’T ASK FOR MUCH MORE

 

THE HOUNDS THEY RUN TO PAY THE BILLS, NOT LIKE IT WAS BACK IN THOSE FLINT HILLS

 

IN THE FLINT HILLS, IN THE FLINT HILLS

 

OUT OF THE BAIT SHACK, THAT’S WHERE I WAS BORN, THOSE ARE THE DAYS THAT I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR

 

WHEN WE’RE ALL GATHERED AROUND THE LAKE, LORD HE SHE COMES WITH HER CHOCOLATE CAKE

 

IN THE FLINT HILLS, IN THE FLINT HILLS

HORSES MADE OF WIND

BORIS McCUTCHEON

HORSIES ON MY MIND WHEN I WAS CHILD

 

HORSIES ON MY MIND THEY WERE BIG AND WILD

 

HORSIES ON MY MIND WHEN I WAS CHILD

 

HORSIES ON MY MIND THEIR EYES DEEP AND WILD

FARTING AND SNORTING WHEN THE STORM STARTS BLOWING, WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THEY’RE GOING

 

IM GETTING CRAZY, IM GETTING CRAZY TOO

RENDEZVOUS DUEL

BARD EDRINGTON V

SO TAKE ME BACK, TO YOUR BED, THE ONE WHERE WE CAN LAY OUR HEADS

AND I WILL TELL YOU, ALL MY STORIES, FOR I’VE BEEN GONE SO LONG

 

I RODE OUT ACROSS THE PRAIRIE, TRAPPED MORE PELTS THAN I COULD CARRY

I TRADED THEM ALL AT GREEN RIVER, WHERE I DUELED A MAN AT THE RENDEZVOUS

 

THERE WERE DAYS WHEN I GOT WEARY, MARCHING ACROSS THE DESERT WITH GENERAL KEARNY

THEY HOLED US UP ON A MOUNTAIN SIDE, THERE WE ALL PREPARED TO DIE

 

SO I SNUCK OUT UNDER A NEW MOON, THIRTY MILES BARE FOOT, I LOST MY BOOTSI LOOKED UP AT THAT MEXICAN MAN, AS HE LIGHTS A MATCH AND HE TAKES A DRAG

 

I KILLED MANY MEN BUT I’M NOT PROUD, THIER WAR CRIES, WELL THEY SEEMED SO LOUD

BUT REVENGE IS THE DEVIL, THIS I KNOW, YOU CAN DIG MY GRAVE, DIG IT DEEP AND LOW

 

THEY MAKE ME OUT, TO BE SOME HERO, BUT HAVE YOU SEEN A DOLLAR, CAUSE I’VE SEEN ZERO

TALL TALES, LIKE THE HIGHEST PEAK, SO COLD AND CLEAR LIKE THE MOUNTAIN STREAM

 

AND I FEEL BAD, FOR THE PEACHES, THE HOGANS WE BURNED AND THE SHOTS WE FIRED

THE ACRES OF CORN WE ATE, SO MANY DIED OUT OF HATE

 

SO TAKE ME BACK TO YOUR BED, THE ONE WHERE WE CAN LAY OUR HEADS

AND YOU CAN TELL ME ALL YOUR STORIES, FOR I’VE BEEN GONE SO LONG

CHILI LINE

BARD EDRINGTON V

I’VE NEVER LEFT THIS MOUNTAIN SIDE, I HEAR TALES OF A TRAIN THAT WE CAN RIDE

 

MOON SHINING ON MY WINDOW PANE, DADDY WAKES ME UP TO CATCH THE TRAIN, HEAD ON OUT IN THE POURING RAIN

 

OFF IN THE DISTANCE I CAN HEAR THE MOAN, LIKE A LOW RUMBLE AND A HAUNTING TONE, HAUNTING TONE GONNA CARRY ME HOME

 

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE I HEAR YOU WHISTLING THROUGH THE PINES

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE HAULING UP THAT STEEP INCLINE

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE SAY YOU’LL BE A FRIEND OF MINE

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE TAKE ME BACK TO ANOTHER TIME

 

AS WE GLIDE THROUGH THE SHADOWS OF THE MESA, WHERE THE SKY TURNS GOLD AND THE ROCKS PRIETA

MY FEET REST ABOVE THE RIVERS EDGE, RAVEN CALLS MY NAME FROM THE ROCKS LEDGE, I’M LIKE THE LAST ONE FROM THE NEST TO FLEDGE

 

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE I HEAR YOU WHISTLING THROUGH THE PINES

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE HAULING UP THAT STEEP INCLINE

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE SAY YOU’LL BE A FRIEND OF MINE

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE TAKE ME BACK TO ANOTHER TIME

 

AS THE RAILS ECHO OFF THE CANYON WALL, LIKE A MOTHER REPLIES TO A LOVING CALL

SUN SETS ON A NEW DAY, PATH AHEAD LEADS ME ON MY WAY, NEVER TO FEAR NEVER TO STRAY

 

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE I HEAR YOU WHISTLING THROUGH THE PINES

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE HAULING UP THAT STEEP INCLINE

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE SAY YOU’LL BE A FRIEND OF MINE

CHILI LINE OH CHILI LINE TAKE ME BACK TO ANOTHER TIME

I'VE BEEN THINKING​

BARD EDRINGTON V

I THINK BABY THAT I’LL GO LIE DOWN, MY HEAD’S SPINNING AND MY FEAT ARE ON THE GROUND

 

JUST SOMETHING THAT I’VE BEEN THINKING

 

DROP IN THE BUCKET WON’T DRAIN THE WELL,  BUT ANOTHER DRINK GONNA MAKE ME FEEL LIKE HELL

 

I GOT A WOMAN WITH A HEART OF GOLD, AFTER HER YOU KNOW THEY BROKE THE MOLD

 

IT’S JUST SOMETHING THAT I’VE BEEN THINKING

 

DROP IN THE BUCKET WON’T DRAIN THE WELL, BUT ANOTHER DRINK GONNA MAKE ME FEEL LIKE HELL

 

IV’E TAKEN ONE TOO MANY HITS TO THE HEAD, THERE’S THE ONE THAT ALMOST LEFT ME DEAD

 

JUST SOMETHING THAT I’VE BEEN THINKING, LORD I BETTER QUIT DRINKING

 

DROP IN THE BUCKET WON’T DRAIN THE WELL, BUT ANOTHER DRINK GONNA MAKE ME FEEL LIKE HELL

 

I THINK BABY THAT I’LL GO LIE DOWN, MY HEAD’S SPINNING AND MY FEAT ARE ON THE GROUND

 

JUST SOMETHING THAT I’VE BEEN THINKING

 

DROP IN THE BUCKET WON’T DRAIN THE WELL, BUT ANOTHER DRINK GONNA MAKE ME FEEL LIKE HELL

JANUARY

BORIS McCUTCHEON & BARD EDRINGTON V

LITTLE BEE FLYING AROUND LOOKING FOR A FLOWER (JANUARY, JANUARY)

SAYS “FREE ME FROM THIS JANUARY”

IT’S THE LONGEST MONTH I’VE EVER SEEN

I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW IT CAN GET MORE MEAN

YOU CAN CALL ME A SNOWFLAKE, CALL ME A FAIRY

BUT THE WHEELS ARE COMING OFF SOMETHING SCARY

 

YOU CAN CRY FOR ME A FAKE NEWS RIVER, BUT WE’RE COMING FOR YOU ORANGE MAN, WE’RE COMING FOR YOU AND YOUR LIVER, ORANGE MAN

 

 

ALL OF MY HENS WERE ASSASSINATED

BY THE LOW DOWN WEASLE OF JANUARY

NOW YOU SAID IT WOULD BE A BETTER YEAR

AS LONG AS YOUR WHITE, NOT MUSLIM OR QUEER

YOUR GONNA WAKE UP IN A BATHTUB FULL OF ICE

YOU’VE BEEN MORE NAUGHTY THAN YOU’VE BEEN NICE

 

YOU CAN CRY FOR US A FAKE NEWS RIVER, BUT WE’RE COMING FOR YOU ORANGE MAN, WE’RE COMING FOR YOU AND YOUR LIVER, ORANGE MAN

 

I KEEP TELLING MYSELF THIS TOO SHALL PASS

BUT THE TURPIN TORTURE’S IN A DIFFERENT CLASS

IT’S THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG AND IT’S MELTING FAST

I FEEL BAD FOR THE CREATURES LEFT HOLDING THE BAG

NOW YOU SAY YOU WANT TO BE A LYING DICTATOR

OUR COUNTRY’S NOT A TOY YOU SPOILED FIRST GRADER

REDNECKS DOING DONUTS ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN

TIME TO CUT THE STRINGS ON PUTIN’S PAWN 

YOU CAN CALL ME A SNOWFLAKE CALL ME A FAIRY

BUT THE WHEELS ARE COMING OFF SOMETHING SCARY

 

YOU CAN CRY FOR US A FAKE NEWS RIVER, BUT WE’RE COMING FOR YOU ORANGE MAN, WE’RE CMING FOR YOU AND YOUR LIVER, ORANGE MAN

 

WE WANT YOUR LIVER

FAULT LINE

BARD EDRINGTON V

I REMEMBER WALKING IN THE PARK, GAZING UP ON A CASTLE ON THE HILL

BOATS RIDES THRU THE CANALS, SINGING, DANCING DRINKING TO OUR FILL

 

AS WE EMERGED FROM THE DARK, DRUM BEATS IN MY HEART

SO MANY LIVES LIVED BELOW, AS WE WALKED HAND IN HAND ACROSS THE ZOCALO

 

BUT I’VE GOT YOUR LOVING ON MY MIND, AIN’T NO REASON TO WONDER WHY

OUR LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN A FAULT LINE

 

OH WHEN THE EARTH BEGINS TO SHAKE, GONE IS THE FEELING OF HATE

WHEN THE WALLS FALL DOWN, BETTER OPEN UP THOSE PEARLY GATES

 

THEY ALL GO RUNNING TO THE SOUND, BEFORE THE DUST EVER HITS THE GROUND

ONE MILLION HANDS SEARCHING ALL AROUND, FOR A LONE CRYING CHILD THEY HAVE FOUND

 

BUT I’VE GOT YOUR LOVING ON MY MIND, AIN’T NO REASON TO WONDER WHY

OUR LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN A FAULT LINE

OUR LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN A FAULT LINE

 

SO MANY STONES LAID BY HAND, GODS READ THE STARS AND THEY GIVE COMMANDS

WHO GIVES THEIR LIFE UP TO THE SUN, ON THE GROUND WHERE THE KIDS ALL WOULD RUN

 

CACTUS HOLDS THE WIEGHT OF AN EAGLE AND A SNAKE, PERCHED ON DRY GROUND IN THE MIDDLE OF A LAKE

VISION TO BEHOLD IT DID TRANSPIRE, AND IT ALL BECAME A GRAND EMPIRE

 

BUT I’VE GOT YOUR LOVING ON MY MIND, AIN’T NO REASON TO WONDER WHY

OUR LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN A FAULT LINE

OUR LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN A FAULT LINE

OUR LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN A FAULT LINE

OUR LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN A FAULT LINE
