lyrics

Tie me in a knot girl & break my back,
we headed out West gonna make long tracks.
Get up in those foothills & lose our names
sit at that station for a long train.
Get there & we don’t say a word,
takin’ in the grass and the trees and the birds,
set up our home for a while,
then she looks at me and says with a smile.
She says, “Boy, let’s get lost for a while
trade in our watches for a sundial,
live like those Gypsies once did,
travelin’ in a wagon, raisin’ our kids.
Stayin’ up late and dancin’ ‘round the fire,
drinkin’ that wine till we never get tired.
Swayin’ in the night to that old skin drum.”
[Mahler Solo]
Well, she tied me in a knot & she broke my back,
we headed out West & we made long tracks.
Got up in those foot hills & lost our names,
we sat at that station for a long train.
Now we’ve grown old & lived our days,
walkin’ through life’s really long maze.
Set up our home for longer than a while,
but she still looks at me & says with a smile.
She says, “Old man, let’s get lost for a while,
trade in our watches for a sundial,
live like those Gypsies once did,
travelin’ in a wagon & raisin’ our grandkids.
Stayin’ up late & dancin’ ‘round the fire,
drinkin’ that wine till we never get tired.
Swayin’ in the night to that old skin drum.

Kiddywompus Marquette, Michigan

From the hard-wire inventiveness of re-purposed tube-drive amps paired with authentic acoustic resonant melodies, the members of Kiddywompus draw inspiration from the simultaneously pastoral and industrial landscape of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The click, clack, thump, and drone of transient-themed songs provides an authentic space for musical expression. ... more
