lyrics

Sister said to me, “remember Franklin’s Grocery?
We’d cop the liquor from the boys in the back
And we’d get drunk and fall and laugh and count our clouds
Drifting silhouettes of ourselves.”
But sister saw the boys and her belly took to swell
So I’d get the liquor myself
Stumbling alone on a sidewalk, praying lord
Lord, don’t see my falling now,
in the sunshine round and round

Sister said to me, “take away my baby,
Take him away from me
Cause the devil is real, he’s raking away in my living room
Dragging, on everything I own.”
So I took baby to the garden and I brushed the gnats away
I hid him in the shade
And I think he may have smiled at the children, ringing-a-rosie around
And I think I may have smiled,
In the sunshine round and round

Sister said to me, “don’t you bring that child around,
Take him away from me
His daddy ain’t coming home, my mind is worn with mockingbird song
Take him away from me”
But with one shot of gin, it’s hard not to side with sleep
And I don’t recall if I dreamed
But I awoke to hear the neighbors crying loud
And sister, dragging baby on the ground
In the sunshine round and round

Justin Lacy and the Swimming Machine Wilmington, North Carolina

The Swimming Machine runs on combustion. Fill it with fuel – a blend of upright bass, sax, guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin, xylophone and trumpet. To ignite, whistle, shout, and sing. Oxygen is required. Stomp if it gives you any trouble. To get the pistons turning, stir in some tambourines, buckets, shakers, cymbals, spoons, a tin can and as many floor toms as you can get your hands on. ... more
