about

About a decade ago, I found a very old parlor-sized square-neck Oahu slide guitar by the side of the road. It was in great disrepair but a couple years I had Brian at B's Music put it back together and rebrace it. I think the guitar has a few old tales to tell because I was trying to write a different song and this song just spewed out of it. Recorded in one-take.

Most people don't know that blues was my first love for guitar-playing. I would listen to jazz and blues late at night on my local NPR station... and always loved to play the blues although I rarely play straight up blues anymore besides FAWM and 50/90.

lyrics

Devils and Angels - Feb 5, 2013

Devils and angels, can't tell what is true
Devils and angels, can't tell what is true
Demons deep inside of me, demons inside of you

Pray the heavens open up, feel I am walking through hell
Pray the heavens open up, feel I am walking through hell
My throat is parched, but there is poison in the well

Walk towards the light, but I got hellhounds on my trail
I walk towards the light, but I got hellhounds on my trail
I built my own coffin, Satan hammered in the nails

Glory, Hallelujah, lay your your hands upon me
Glory, Hallelujah, lay your your hands upon me
Peacherman says, throw your coins in the coffer, he could heal me

When I'm dead and gone, light a candle for me
When I'm dead and gone, light a candle for me
It will take a hell of a lot of saints, just to save me
