about

This EP was a collaborative effort between myself, Katie and Ben Morey, and Joey Small. It is part one of a four-part release which will become a full-length album over the course of an undesignated period of time. This is not a conceptual work. Just a collective volume of music I'm making as time goes on. The songs on this EP were heavily influenced by Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and The Carter Family.

I have to give a very special thanks to Katie and Ben (and their cat Abe) for being such wonderful musicians and friends and really helping me tie this whole thing together. And of course another special thanks to Joey for recording drum tracks on the opposite side of the state. Not really sure how we live tracked you playing drums 200 miles away as I played in Ben and Katie's attic. Wormholes? Who knows.

-Jackson

Stick around for more to come.

Track Name: Lilly May June
Well it seems to me you got your mind made up so go and do it, go on and break my heart
It seems to me so easy for you to be leaving and you show it, with your lips of red and other pretty parts

Well I don't know much about lovin' but I see your color true as it is
and they say my (with some) time its a comin' and I'll be back on my feet again

But I don't know if the same applies to you
id ask (if you're my vice) for your advice but it's true
that its easier than hell to fall in love with someone like you
so spare me darling please spare me Lilly May June

Well there's a look in your eyes that tells me dear that its morning so come and break this spell
because I know there's somebody else in your head and it's pleasing for you to wish me farewell

Well I don't know much about lovin' but I see your color true as it is
and they say my (with some) time its a comin' and I'll be back on my feet again

But I don't know if the same applies to you
id ask (if you're my vice) for your advice but it's true
that its easier than hell to fall in love with someone like you
so spare me darling please spare me Lilly May June

Well I see you standing there on the platform of the station where you'll be leaving never to return
The flower in your hair the coldness of your empty stare the dress you wore on breathless summer days
But in that sunny haze where you stand alone and quite unafraid a question will come into your mind
And as your train pulls in the whistle blows and sweats your skin for I am still in your spine

But I don't know if the same applies to you
id ask (if you're my vice) for your advice but it's true
that its easier than hell to fall in love with someone like you
so spare me darling please spare me Lilly May June
Track Name: Kingdom of Heaven
I see the angels coming over the hill and I see glory on high
its a vast nation in the kingdom of God and we're all gonna go there when we die

Sinners go to the river, heathens dry your eyes
there a place waiting in the kingdom of heaven
and we're all gonna go there when we die

I hear the trumpets reigning over me
I feel the warmth from their sound
it's a vast nation over which those horns reside
and were all gonna go there when we die

Sinners go to the river, heathens dry your eyes
there a place waiting in the kingdom of heaven
and we're all gonna go there when we die
and we're all gonna go there when we die
Track Name: Eliza Blue
Well I remember, your eyes were blue as diamonds,
the night that you were crying, the night I said goodbye
and I recall, your hair was red it was on fire,
as you set your heart to the pyre, its ashes scattered with the wind

And I think about you now and then, when I'm in need, I need a friend, someone to help me understand someone who knew me when I was young

Hey that's you, Eliza Blue, hey ay you, your eyes of diamond blue

And now I know, you're probably better off without me, to think that you had found me, when I was down and out of luck
but I recall, the nights we enjoyed our company, the freedom found in comforting the out of place and unbeloved

And do you think about me now and then when you're in need and need a friend someone to help you understand someone who knew you when you were young

Well I remember you, Eliza Blue, yeah ay you, your eyes of diamond blue

And I think about those better days like shadows in the rain
and I see another turn coming soon
at every crossroads I feel you there the trace of you is shining there
black highway, golden sun, blue moon

Hey that's you, Eliza Blue, hey that's you, your eyes of diamond blue
