lyrics

“Sunset, MO”

Out west of town my skin was pale.
Kelly Robinson said,“Son, you must go there.”
They call it the court, but there ain’t no judge.
And the baseline is where the braves ones run.
Wore my true colors, ‘cuz all else told,
“Don’t ever go to Sunset, boy.
Don’t ever go there after dark.
In Sunset, Missouri the snake is the charmer.
Don’t. Don’t.”

Those colors were black and they were red.
Broke as a loke and just don’t care.
We walked through the valley with nothing but love.
Using the word “schooly” like it was a drug.
‘Little Squeeb’ growing up, catching the buzz.
“Don’t ever go to Sunset, boy.
Don’t ever go there after dark.
Unless a black preacher’s gonna guard your heart.
Don’t. Don’t.”

Tim Johnson don’t care about us none.
Don’t give me none of that “Robert (Johnson)” folklore stuff.
Gwish was on the corner pressing his luck.
I was in the back of Uncle Mike’s green pick up.
You been to Clarksdale? ...whatever player.
I got a devil of my own.
Came to me when the sun was showin’.
Came to me in Sunset, I was nine years old.
Came to me in Sunset via Cairo.
So now I’m going to Cairo to settle the score.

“Don’t ever go to Cairo, boy.
Don’t ever go there on your own.”
I’ll bring a gypsy woman that bangs a drum.

The Smoking Flowers Nashville, Tennessee

There are not enough words to describe the intrinsic chemistry Kim and Scott Collins possess. They have discovered what some duos spend their entire careers trying to find: a fascinating marriage between artistic talent and subtle sensuality that pierces the attention of anyone in the same room as them... the second their wild feet touch the stage they exude just how tenured they truly are. ... more
