lyrics

Company Store

Meet me in the morning
Down by the company store
Meet me in the morning
Down by the company store
Boss Man can't tell me
How to think no more

Meet me in the afternoon
Out near the sycamore tree
Meet me in the afternoon
Out near the sycamore tree
And now the time has come
To set the ragmans son free

Did you think about the consequence
Did you think at all
In spite of all your arrogance
In spite you will crawl

Meet me in the evening
Out by the end of the ravine
Meet me in the evening
Out by the end of the ravine
And now the time has come
To wash these crooked hands clean

Did you think about the consequence
Did you think at all
In spite of all your arrogance
In spite you will crawl

Meet me in the morning
Down by the company store
Meet us in the morning
Down by the company store

From five generations of musicians, ministers, poets, that all adds up to a mixture that makes this songwriter who he is. Mixing folk, rock, blues, and Americana music with compelling thoughtful lyrics that reveal more depth with each listen. ... more
