The Twelve Days of Butter – DAY 12

May 30, 2014      

Today is the day! The new HBR album “Hot Buttered Rum” is officially out, available on iTunes, Spotify, etc and of course on our website.  We’ll see a lot of you tonight at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael. Bo and Lebo go on at 8.

Here is the final track for your streaming pleasure:

Here’s what composer Nat Keefe had to say about this one:

“‘Doctor’s Daughter’ is about being in a good groove with your lady. It all started with a small earthquake, the ‘raised on love and Hetch Hetchy water’ and ‘so many men see their dreams in you’ lines and it flowed easily from there. Hetch Hetchy is the reservoir from where San Francisco gets its water.”

 

DOCTOR’S DAUGHTER      -Nat Keefe

So many men see their dreams in you

So many dreams only one will come true

I’ll do my best to see it through—

The green-eyed girl, the doctor’s daughter

Raised on love and Hetch Hetchy water

I’m so glad for all they taught her—

 

I can’t stand to see you feeling down

I can’t stand to see you scared of what might come around

Cause the earth could shake and quake at any time

When the dust has settled, you’ll still be mine all mine

Hey hey my my, wipe those tears from your eyes

Hey hey wo wo, in the cracks of the pavement the sweet grass grows

Hey hey my my, turn your face up to the sky

Hey hey wo wo, in the cracks of the pavement the sweet grass grows

 

The light the curtains the silhouette

The radio plays a sweet duet

If there’s better I aint seen it yet—

I deserve everything I get

But I’m about willing to forget

The lipstick on the cigarette—

The Twelve Days of Butter – DAY 11

May 29, 2014      

Here’s a smokin version of “Every Side of the Coin” from Bend, OR.

You can listen to the studio track to the right. Enjoy!

We’re getting excited about the show tomorrow!

 

Here’s what composer Aaron Redner had to say about writing this one:

“This song is all about making choices in life and learning to live with those choices. It’s so hard sometimes to know what direction to go. Maintaining a positive attitude through adversity is where it’s at!”

 

EVERY SIDE OF THE COIN      Aaron Redner

Oh, flip away,
Throw it around, that’s what I say
Oh, let it roll,
Down the street, round the telephone pole,
I’ve seen every side of the coin,
And I don’t fear nothing cause I’ve seen it all before,
Oh, take my hand,
Follow my fingers, all across the land,
Oh, take it slow,
You’ll find your family wherever you go,
You’ll find every side of the coin,
And you won’t fear nothing once you’ve seen it all before,

Heads I’ll take the money tails I’ll let it go, ain’t it all so funny, ah ha honey best to take your chances on love,

Pave your own road, make your bricks, out of solid gold, 
Change your foolish ways,
Bet on the house, it always pays,
Bet on every side of the coin,
Cause you won’t win nothing if you don’t lay your money down,

Heads I’ll pull the trigger,
Tails I’ll let it go,
Always something bigger,
Always more to know,
Start the revolution, spin it all around,
Only one solution, ah-ha honey best to take your chances on love.
