Tumble Dry – This is the crazy caravan ride of a song. The solo came out so neat and crazy, I got a tear in my ear (just dust from the wagon wheel, i swear.) The lyrics are very poetic and just sort of say….well, hey, maybe i shouldn’t tell you, you decide.


Tumble dry and don’t ask why
hang your hopes out on the line
beat the rug, with a broom
sing a tune of moon and june
things they cling and one is lost
to wash away a steeper cost
somethings stain and won’t fade away
you can’t forget you can’t replace
shadows dealing hard against the wall
they don’t care a lick about the fall
tumble dry and don’t ask why
pinch of salt in the devil’s eye
wrap your knuckles on a piece of wood
black cat laughs at ya underneath your foot
tumble dry and don’t ask why
eat a piece of the fallen sky
click your heels and poke the moon
it all ends all too soon
and it’s coming back (for) to you

down the hill, end over end
laughing shouting with my friend
the sun is blue, and the sky is green
i’ve torn a hole in my new jeans
wind it races through our hair
grit our teeth and have no care
the world is spinning beneath our wheels
everybody needs to know how that feels
shadows dealing hard against the wall
they don’t care a lick about the fall
