lyrics

A little nervous
You can hear it when she speaks
Still self-conscious
‘bout that bruise above her cheek

Train’s Delayed
And she’s still in Battle Creek
Lit her first
Under the Depot balcony

Someone said
There’s silver in the mines
She chased a ghost
Across the Mason-Dixie line

She grew up fast –
In broken record time
Daughter, waitress, mother, sister of the bride.

And a soul got dropped tonight
In a house behind a neon sign
Been a worn, torn and tattered ride
For every sister -- of the bride

It’s not on purpose
It’s not her cup of tea
The painted smiles
And the faux sincerity

A thousand miles
And a million memories
Her fairy tales and her purple poetry

A sudden flash
There’s lightning in her eyes
A broken promise kept on ruining her surprise

She grew up fast –
In broken record time
Daughter, waitress, mother, sister of the bride.

And a soul got dropped tonight
In a house behind a neon sign
Been a worn, torn and tattered ride
For every sister -- of the bride

Way down the line
There’s a light
And it just might be the sun

Way down the line
There’s a light
And it just might be the sun

Way down the line
There’s a light
And it just might be the sun

And it just might be the sun
And it just might be the sun

about

Trick Shooter Social Club Chicago, Illinois

The Trick Shooter Social Club is a place tucked just behind the beat. It’s a belief in the power of story and the sublime hip sway of a well placed middle eight. It’s cat gut, and pick guards and nods across the stage when it's time to go to the bridge. It’s acoustic, electric and reverent to its heroes. It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join. ... more
