lyrics

It hasn’t rained all summer here in Oregon, now the sky is crying thru the sunshine
Crying diamond tears for you New Orleans, storm has passed by bad news is just arriving
Bodies floating down the Bywater my bodies floating down the Bywater
I feel like a traitor a prodigal daughter and I ain’t ever going home

How can you leave a place that breaks so big and hard
Her tomboy face is smudged with dirt her chest is stuck out like a schoolyard bully
But her shins are shaking in the wind
Here comes another one take her one more round again

When the going gets rough the restless split
That’s what I always done I fear that’s what I always
Will you grab me by the ankle wrap around my thigh
Plant my feet in fertile soil I get that faraway look in my eye

Is is blessed is it the life that never had to leave her village
Never had life given and never had to kill it never had all these choices
Or heard all these voices or had a car or a highway could take her far so far away
We call ourselves wealthy to be footloose and free
But what we are that’s you and me I don’t never ever want to leave
Will you grab me by the ankle wrap around my thigh
Plant my feet in fertile soil I get that faraway look in my
Body is floating down the Bywater my bodies floating down the Bywater
I feel like a traitor a prodigal daughter and I ain’t never going home

about

Myshkin Joshua Tree, California

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
