video: seth avett talks about and plays souls like the wheels
bye bye love
bye bye happiness
i think i’m gonna cry
be kind to a man when he’s down
now, i don’t mind chopping wood
and i don’t care if the money’s no good
you take what you need
and you leave the rest
i love you ‘cause you’re perfect
and the only thing i’d change
is to get you to come back to me
so we could be together again
it’s like i’ve been awakened…
just call my name
i’m not ashamed
i’ll come running back to you
and i’ve been fighting second gear
for fifteen miles or so
trying to beat the angry snow
and i know every town worth passing through
but what good does knowing do
with no one to show it to
and i’ve grown tired of traveling alone
tired of traveling alone
i’ve grown tired of traveling alone
won’t you ride with me?
if you’re gonna do wrong, buddy, do wrong right.
and grace will lead me home.
now if you ladies were blackbirds,
if you ladies were thrushes,
i’d lie there for hours
in the cold, chilly marshes.
if you ladies were squirrels with high, bushy tails,
i’d fill up my shotgun
with rock salt and nails.
damn. this is flat gorgeous.
