about

Songs from my room. One guitar, one voice & one mic and sometimes one harp. It´s my first folk album. I felt so glad while I was building song by song. A piece of folk a piece of blues and some rare cover.

Empecé sin saber como acabaría pero me lo he pasado bien con la guitarra encerrado en mi cuarto grabando rarezas, algo de blues y algo de folk. Me propuse hacerlo en directo y lo conseguí. Voz guitarra y armónica.

released November 10, 2011

Thanks to my little home studio to bring all the things that I need to make songs.

Track Name: Love sick
I’m walking through streets that are dead
Walking, walking with you in my head
My feet are so tired, my brain is so wired
And the clouds are weeping

Did I hear someone tell a lie?
Did I hear someone’s distant cry?
I spoke like a child; you destroyed me with a smile
While I was sleeping

I’m sick of love but I’m in the thick of it
This kind of love I’m so sick of it

I see, I see lovers in the meadow
I see, I see silhouettes in the window
I watch them ’til they’re gone and they leave me hanging on
To a shadow

I’m sick of love; I hear the clock tick
This kind of love; I’m love sick

Sometimes the silence can be like the thunder
Sometimes I feel like I’m being plowed under
Could you ever be true? I think of you
And I wonder

I’m sick of love; I wish I’d never met you
I’m sick of love; I’m trying to forget you

Just don’t know what to do
I’d give anything to be with you
Track Name: Oh Mary don't you Weep
Well if I could I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

Well Mary wore three links and chains
On every link was Jesus' name
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't you weep

O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
O Mary don't you weep, don't mourn
Pharaoh's army got drownded
O Mary don't weep
Track Name: Chocolate Jesus
Don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the Bible
I got my own special way
Bit I know Jesus loves me
Maybe just a little bit more

I fall on my knees every Sunday
At Zerelda Lee's candy store

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied

Well I don't want no Anna Zabba
Don't want no Almond Joy
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
Well it's the only thing
That can pick me up
Better than a cup of gold
See only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul
Track Name: You are not alone
You are not alone,
I'm with you
I'm lonely too
What's that song,
Can't be sung by two.
A broken home,
A broken heart,
Isolated and afraid,
Open up this is a raid,
I wanna get it through to you,
You're not alone.

You're not alone,
Every night,
I stand in your place.
Every tear,
On every face,
Tastes the same.
A broken dream,
A broken heart,
Isolated and afraid,
Open up this is a raid,
I'm gonna get it through to you,
You're not alone.

An open hand,
An open heart,
There's no need to be afraid,
Open up this is a raid,
I wanna get it through to you,
You're not alone.
I wanna get it through to you,
You're not alone.
I'm gonna get it through to you,
You're not alone.
Track Name: Another Night to Cry
Yes, another night to cry, because I need you so.
Yes, another day and night to cry, because I miss you so.
Yes, you'll never know how much you made me suffer, baby, you will never know.

If I told you how much I love you, my tears would fall like drops of rain.
If I told you how much I love you, my tears would fall like drops of rain.
Only for you to walk back in my heart, and hurt me all over again.

Now ain't you satisfied you've made me cry? You've made me walk my floor.
If you're satisfied you made me cry, and made me walk my floor.
Yes, I was your fool once upon a time, but I ain't your fool no more.

Someday you're gonna cry for me, just like I cried for you.
Someday you're gonna dry for me, just like I cried for you.
Then you'll know what it means to be hurt by love, �cause it all come back to you.

Baby, it may be tomorrow, and it may be a month or so.
Yes, it may be tomorrow, may be a month or day.
But so many times I'll cross your mind, with all the good things I used to do and say.
Track Name: Wayfaring Stranger
I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through this world alone
There is no sickness, toil nor danger
In that fair land to which I go

I'm going home
To see my mother
I'm going home
No more to roam
I am just going over Jordan
I am just going over home

I know dark clouds will hover o'er me
I know my pathway is rough and steep
But golden fields lie out before me
Where weary eyes no more will weep
I'm going home to see my father
I'm going home no more to roam
I am just going over Jordan
I am just going over home

I'll soon be free from every trial
This form shall rest beneath the sod
I'll drop the cross of self-denial
And enter in that home with God
I'm going home to see my savior
Who spilled his precious blood for me
I am just going over Jordan
I am just going over home
Track Name: Trouble in Mind
Trouble in mind, babe, I'm blue,
but I won't be blue always
Yes, the sun gonna shine,
in my back door someday

I'm goin' down, down to the river,
I'm gonna take my rockin' chair
Lord, if the blues overtake me,
I'm gonna rock on away from here

'Cause I'm trouble in mind, you know that I'm blue,
but I won't be blue always
Yes, the sun gonna shine,
in my back door someday

I'm gonna lay, lay my head,
on some sad, old railroad iron
I'm gonna let that 2:19,
pacify my mind

I'm trouble in mind, baby you know that I'm blue,
but I won't be blue always
Yes, the sun gonna shine,
in my back door someday
Track Name: Sittin' on Top of the World
Was in the summer,
One early fall,
Just tryin' to find my
Little all and all
Now she's gone,
An' I don't worry.
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

Was in the spring,
One summer's day.
Just when she left me,
She gone to stay.
Now she's gone.
An' I don't worry.
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

Now don't come runnin'
Holdin' up your hand.
Can get me a woman
Quick as you can get a man.
Now she's gone.
An' I don't worry.
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

Happen for days,
Didn't know your name.
Oh, why should I worry
Or crave you in vain?
Now she's gone.
An' I don't worry.
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

Went to the station,
Down in the yard,
Gonna get me a freight train,
Work's done got hard.
Now she's gone.
An' I don't worry.
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

The lonesome days,
They have gone by,
Why should I beg you?
You said good-bye.
Now she's gone.
An' I don't worry.
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.
