Lyrics
Mississippi drink

you’re ashamed
and I’m ashamed
until I come alive
there’s no place
no disgrace
to cover the lies

Floating downtown
where the sunset ends
Down on the sleepy streets
off the Mississippi gray
With borrowed time
and borrowed friends
Her hands on the pulse
of the speakeasy sway
Watch her scowl
as she makes her way
Through the corn-fed clientele
she had never fully drank
Long links of slinky beads
they clink and they clank
they shimmer there in her hair
fussed to a swift swank

she'll give you something that you
that you can talk about
a little something that you
yeah you can talk about
the stiletto heels
of her nightmare foreplay
She still has some reverence
for man
From the breath of his hand
she will kneel and obey
She’s not on her knees to pray
To cold hard wisdom she has
the honor to drink

She’ll give you something to talk about…

Fine song that really steps up a gear when you and Tyler sing together, Gaylen. Scott, John and Brian are all cookin'. Like the mix. Sounds great. Thanks, Peter.

You & Tyler
Blend awesome. I'm really floored by the vocal palette you two have. I'm with Scott, so glad to have met everyone.
The guitar work is Terrific Gaylen. Solid with lots of repeating melodic threads.

I still love this one.It was my fav until we did Through My Window-Now they are my 2 favs! This was such a great idea for a song and it was so cool to hear this one come alive and follow how it grew from the acoustic/vocal track. It was great to hear what everyone created as it went along-I have the greatest respect to all involved on this whole project.Such talented musicians.

Love that intro
Which takes us into a tight production all round. This band really wails and you've let everyone really shine with a great mix. It's inspiring to see what's possible, and though I'm not a singer or writer of lyrics, I have great respect for those who can put together great tunes like this one.

Peace,
Doug
