Hand me my pistol Three rounds of ball gonna shoot anybody whup this poor boy along Arrested on the Monday Tuesday I was tried Judge found me guilty and I hung my head and cried I asked the Judge What might be my fine He said a pick and a shovel Way down int he mine I said man, I aint never been here before He said I'll give you 99 years years and you won't be back no more Got a 38 special 45 frame That thing never misses I've got good aim Daddy was a bad man I'm a bad man too Reason I'm a bad man Got nothing better to do So hand me my pistol Three rounds of ball Gonna shoot anybody I don't like at all.
Gonna get me a banty Put it in my backyard (x2) When he sees a stranger comin' He'll flap his wings and crow What you want with a hen don't Cackle when she lay (x2) What you want with a woman Won't do nothing you say What you want with a rooster Won't crow for day (x2) What you want with a woman Won't do nothing you say Take my picture Hang it up on Jackson wall (x2) Anybody ask you Tell 'em that's all you saw Hooks in the water And my cork's on top (x2) How can I lose lord With all the help I've got I know my doggy When I hear him bark (x2) I Know my rider by feeling her in the dark
Moonshine 02:42


A carefully crafted selection of stripped down country and delta blues songs, with a handful of originals thrown in for good measure. The recordings feature a mixture of solo acoustic blues guitar and vocal, resonator slide guitar, ukulele, six string banjo and so on. Nothing here is electrified. Two tracks feature excellent pre-war style Harmonica by Mike Petersen.
The covers include songs by Charley Patton, Julius Daniels, Gus Cannon's Jug Stompers, Papa Charlie Jackson and Roosevelt Sykes.

I have physical copies too which will be available very shortly -£8 including postage in the UK (will have to calculate postage for overseas)- send me a message if you would prefer one of those.
