the black rock mountains of sin

just messing around with garageband on the macbook air i bought to write iOS apps with...

spent an hour writing and recording a song to one of the built in sample projects.

thought you might like to hear.

it's sort of based off a documentary i saw about jesco white of west virginia who was an appalachian mountain tap / clog dancer.


it's called:  the black rock mountains of sin

3 is just the way in
four to feel normal again
five and six for my friends
one more and they change
into enemies again

stuck in the black rock mountains of sin...

black coal beds swim by
under a balcony that's one chair-wide
two stories high
above the worn railway tracks
you think you yankees have got all the facts

stuck in the black rock mountains of sin...

taps a horseshoed heel
throws a roach
in a rusty old can
it's filled to the brim
he can't remember when, oh no...

stuck in the black rock mountains of sin...
