about

Ghost Heron is an original Rock n’ Roll – Americana Band from Philadelphia drawing influences from found legends and raw humanity. Ghost Heron’s first album, Deep Six, take listeners on a sonic Americana journey through the book of Jonah. “Been Walking these Streets,” is a blues tune set in the famed city of Nineveh that features racked harmonica and some mean Memphis piano. The tune “Hooked on Phonix Fool” is an Alt-Country shuffle showcasing the dual lead harmonies of the Sonic Abbess and Heron. The singer-songwriter ballad “Through the Darkness” explores the theme of blind sight with gut stringed guitars, beatlesque drums and gospel B3 organ.

Track Name: Life on Vine
Life on Vine

In the morning I woke to find
This little worm done eat my vine
I understand things got to eat
But Lord you give and take, I feel a cheat

Oh, Life on Vine
Oh, Life on Vine

I used to hang with Kings and Queens
Now I’m hanging round this dirty scene
Watching them Johns coming and going
Watching them donnies crying and moaning

Oh, Life on Vine
Oh, Life on Vine

This scorching wind is gonna lay me to rest
This scorching wind done taken my best
That little worm ate away my shade
That little worm set my mind a blaze

Oh, Life on Vine
Oh, Life on Vine
Track Name: Hooked on Phonix Fool
Hooked on Phonix Fool

I used to believe what you said was true
I used to believe what you said you’d do
Lord, I know better
You do whatever you want too

I’m your trumpet, I’m your puppet
I’m your hooked on Phonix fool
I’m your proclaiming Shell gaming
Hell raising fool for you

Now I’m sitting here waiting, waiting for what I want
I know it ain’t gonna happen no one tells you when to stop or start
Now I hate lying
I wish the whole thing would come true

I’m your trumpet, I’m your puppet
I’m your hooked on Phonix fool
I’m your proclaiming Shell gaming
Hell raising fool for you

I had a feeling this would happen
I knew you wouldn't follow through
You're too kind and forgiving even when they spit on you
Oh, I can’t stand it
That’s why I ran I flew

I’m your trumpet, I’m your puppet
I’m your hooked on Phonix fool
I’m your proclaiming Shell gaming
Hell raising fool for you
Track Name: Through the Darkness
Through the Darkness

When the darkness is deeper than night
When the day fades from our sight
I will breathe and know your way
Through the darkness we will wade
When your voice inside me grows faint
When I struggle with words of saints
I will breathe and know your way
Through the darkness we will wade

Through the darkness we will wade
Fear not the unknowing
At the end of time you will know you're mine
And I will not let you under
Live in me, I live in you
There is space to be, space to breathe
Through the darkness we will see

When my heart rests not with its soul
When my spirit grows weary and low
I will breathe and know your way
Through the darkness we will wade

Through the darkness we will wade
Fear not the unknowing
At the end of time you will know you're mine
And I will not let you under
Live in me, I live in you
There is space to be, space to breathe
Through the darkness we will see
Track Name: Been Walkin' these Streets
Been Walkin' these Streets

Been walkin' these streets for three days
Been walkin' these streets feels like a maze
Been wallin' all night been walking all day
Been walkin' these streets feels like a maze
Been shouting listen babe listen to what I say
Been walkin' these streets for three days

I’ve been hearing voices telling me what to do
I’ve been hearing voices talking about rage and ruin
I don’t know what I’m doing I’m just following through
I’ve been hearing voices telling me what to do
I ain’t crying boogie, I’m crying the blues
I’ve been hearing voices talking about rage and ruin

You know I’ve got the skinny and I swung it all around
You know I got the skinny and now I’m skipping town
Me and Neil going out to the country gonna commune with the ground
You know I got the skinny and I swung it all around
The City of Bloods is coming down
You know I got the skinny and now I’m heading out of town
Track Name: Don't Slow Down
Don’t Slow Down

Ain’t nobody tell me where to go
Things are happening there and everybody knows
Don’t you go giving me no decree
Gonna run the other way, hightail and flee

Don’t slow down, don’t slow down
Time to head to the next town
Don’t slow down, don’t slow down
Gonna pick right up where my feet hit the ground

You say this is great this is good news
I don’t think you’d wanna go if you were in my shoes
Don’t tell me what I need to say
I’m running straight to the edge
I’m running either way

Don’t slow down, don’t slow down
Time to head to the next town
Don’t slow down, don’t slow down
Gonna pick right up where my feet hit the ground
Track Name: In the Belly of the Beast
In the Belly of the Beast

In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
Got three days in solitary
For leaving the scene of a crime

Met a man in Joppa said he need me to do a favor for him
Met a man in Joppa said he need me to do a favor for him
this man dont take no for an answer
So I slipped away in the evening

Went down to the docks throw my scent off his trail
Went down to the docks throw my scent off his trail
Found a boat heading over yonder
And the crew was setting sail

Paid my passage below deck I stowed
Paid my passage below deck I stowed
But them waves came crashing
Them sailors took my money threw me over board

In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
Got three days in solitary
For leaving the scene of a crime
Track Name: Hands of Love
Hands of Love

My hands got tired
Rattling the cage
When i slipped behind
The bars of the grave
I hung my head
Through the mountain roots
'Til you came
With your light of truth

Thank you for holding me in light
Thank you for shining in my life
You gripped me up with a whisper of a touch
You hold me soft and strong with your hands of love

You laid me out
When i tried to leave
You laid me low
To help me see
I was wallowing
In my doom
'Til Bobby gave your number
And dialed you

Thank you for holding me in light
Thank you for shining in my life
You gripped me up with a whisper of a touch
You hold me soft and strong with your hands of love
Track Name: Before the Storm
Before the Storm

It was long ago
Our backs were strong
Our eyes were keen
Our bodies bronzed
Sailing under sun and moon

We were at port
So the story goes
Hoisting our sail
Lashing our loads
Pulling up anchor
Readying the oars
‘Fore the storm

Nothing seemed strange
Done it all before
Hundred times
Maybe hundred more
We knew what to do
When the clouds formed

The winds came fast
Rocked us back and forth
Skeel to stern
Starboard to port
Our deck buckled
Oh she moaned

We cast lots to uncover
Who among us brought this disaster
We tried in vain to row back to port
When we heard the guilty’s report

Our ship was doing all she could do
We were running heavy
She was coming unglued
We threw the cargo into the sea
Cried out to our gods please

There was nothing left for us to choose
The bones and profit told us what to do
We tossed him over into the sea
When his body sank
The waves did recede

It was long ago
Our backs were strong
Our eyes were keen
Our bodies bronzed
Sailing under sun and moon
