Life on Vine 03:15
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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
