***A co-write with two stellar humans who helped this album get started. I was at their house, and we were talking over dinner about Tannis' dad being a British pilot, and how so many kids had to leave unprofitable farms or the dark side of town to join militaries, and how many of those towns were changed by what came back.***


Sorrow On My Mind

I got sorrow
on my mind
and I try to live with the pain
so I drown my sorrow in pure alcohol
and I don’t think of nothing, at all

Got the Prairie on my mind
I tried to stay on the farm
Then a man in a suit come
and just took it all
Didn’t leave nothing at all

Got a woman on my mind
She tried to love me so well
I took it all out on her,
made her life hell
I didn’t think nothing of it at all


I got money on my mind
But I try to spend it away
I curse all the bankers that started this all
They didn't think nothing, at all

Got a young man on my mind
Was the first one I killed in the war
We were both young and scared and believed in it all
didn’t think nothing of it at all

I got heaven on my mind
I wait ’til they call out my name
For the hell that I’ve seen has shattered my dreams
I don’t think of nothing, at all


I don’t think of nothing, at all
I don’t think of nothing, at all

“The man is an exceptional guitar player – for one thing – but also writes extremely clever, finessed, clockwork folk-pop songs whose singable surface belies a tremendous underlying sense of craft. It was really great to see him again.” – Jowi Taylor, Six String Nation

“Well-crafted, skillfully written songs, dazzling guitar playing. Son of a Rudderless Boat is a marvelous listen.” – Penguin Eggs
