about

This is a recording of an unplugged, candle-lit house show in Frostburg, MD (at Gabe's house), with soulmobile playing as a three-piece.

The line up included Soulmobile, Catamount/Coyote (Harrisburg), and the Ears to the Ground Family (Harrisonburg).

It was a joy to re-join with Tara, our eternal sister and long-time co-conspirator, and to get Ears to the Ground Family into Frostburg proper. They shone at last year's Common Ground festival, and were great support when the Carnival de Resistance came to Harrisonburg. Good continuiation of a long friendship.

This recording is from February 15, 2014.

Track Name: Come Down 2014-02-15
Come down from the cloud you claimed as ground.
There’s a soil that will find you, claim you, break you down.

You dance like ballerina from one crumbling
Sentence structure to another. It’s babel,
But you don’t care as long as you never see the gavel

Come down from the cloud you claimed as ground.
There’s a soil that will judge you, love you. Come to terms.
Track Name: Head for the Hills 2014-02-15
How’s it gonna be when they ride to town, ride to town, ride to town?
How’s it gonna be when they ride to town, ride to town?

How’s it gonna be when they bring the dogs, bring the dogs, bring the dogs?
How’s it gonna be when they bring the dogs, bring the dogs?

How’s it gonna be when they take one chair, take one chair, take one chair?
How’s it gonna be when they take one chair, take one chair?

How’s it gonna be when the music stops, music stops, music stops?
How’s it gonna be when the music stops, music stops?

Hard rain’s gonna fall.
Hole in the roof where the rain comes through.
Head for the hills, howl at the moon.
That’s all right, any way you do.
I’ll be me, you be you.

How’s it gonna be when they tie our legs, tie our legs, tie our legs?
How’s it gonna be when they tie our legs, tie our legs?

How’s it gonna be when they drop the egg, drop the egg, drop the egg?
How’s it gonna be when they drop the egg, drop the egg?

Hard rain’s gonna fall.
Hole in the roof where the rain comes through.
Head for the hills, howl at the moon.
That’s all right, any way you do.
I’ll be me, you be you.

How’s it gonna be when they skip to the end, skip to the end, skip to the end?
How’s it gonna be when they skip to the end, skip to the end?

Lou, lou, skip to my lou. Lou, lou, skip to my lou,
Lou, lou, skip to my lou. Skip to my lou my darling.

Hard rain’s gonna fall.
Hole in the roof where the rain comes through.
Head for the hills, howl at the moon.
That’s all right, any way you do.
I’ll be me, you be you.
Track Name: Place by Place 2014-02-15
i call the nearest hearing god, oh lift me on the wings of truth
as the wheels on that ancient chariot come loose

how could all this beauty come to be
dashed against the rocks and collapsed upon by the sea
pages in the wind

place by place we disappear without a trace
line by line this story's being lost in time
place by place we disappear without a trace
line by line, it's gone forever

oh your stones, your ruined cities speak
volumes in the silence i am destined to repeat
no one will ever know me

place by place we disappear without a trace
line by line this story's being lost in time
place by place we disappear without a trace
line by line, it's gone forever
Track Name: Everlasting Light 2014-02-15
I was looking for that everlasting light.
I was searching every corner every morning, every night
For a stream to dip my face in, a place to get saved in
I was looking for that choir all god's creatures have a place in

Oh!

I heard the voice of the lord in the forest just before it
got destroyed, I was floored, overjoyed, wanted more,
andI could sing in the choir
if the choir boys sang with a rhythm like that
get back (get back) get back to where you once belonged.

you can ditch the rest, but believe that this is true:
I always believed in you.

Oh we were slaves to the war, we were always keeping score,
We were doomed to walk the night, afraid we'd wake and find we're crying for
someone to say, "believe me, i love you, you need me,
when you hurt yourself it grieves me, now change."

you can ditch the rest, but believe that this is true: i always believe
Track Name: Be Clear 2014-02-15
i've been down to the depot and i balanced on the rails
touched the coal to my lips and left notes wrote on the shale
and who do you suppose would be the last ones to know
oh the baker, the buried, and me

so early you warned me you loved me and i got
so much learning so quickly and so quickly i forgot
but it's not too late, i hear the calling of the corn
saying join what you learned here to the song of the lord

oh be clear, be clear, see the light in my tears,
i been waiting and waiting for your face to appear
don't you rustle through the treetops, don't you whistle round my ears,
call me down into the humus, to the soil i hold dear

trouble, oh trouble, you were born with your hand on my heal
lover, oh lover, do you really feel what i feel?
Track Name: Winter Gathering 2014-02-15
come on now, the storm is coming.
come on now, the storm has come.
come on now, it's time to fight,
and rally round the ones you love.

Everybody grab a partner,
show them that they're not alone
dance the cities down to nothing
and feel the spirit in your bones.

Hear, now, everybody listen.
Here, now, everybody stand.
Hear, now, the wind is howling,
and rising to reclaim the land.
Track Name: Born Free 2014-02-15
i went into a church
the sign said United We Stand
i went in to gather round jesus
they were praying to Uncle Sam
who i have been cursing all week
as he is lording it over me

"you ain't no god" i kept repeating.
then here these folks disagree.

jesus in the rubble of the temple
jesus for insurrection to the chair
i don't know who these folks were praying to,
but i believed i was about to make a prayer.

jesus, jesus,

i have read that you said you were God.
i don't know what you meant, but it seems to me
if you are you came to remind us
that in you we were born free.
Track Name: Last Gold Dollar/Feeding Them 2014-02-15
when your last dollar falls out of your pocket
and into the hands of the wrong
you give and give and they take away
and its been like this for too long

you're feedin' them, feedin' them,
while we just starve to the death
we're feeding them

when your last dime goes into the belly
of one of these gluttonous pigs
invested in a future with benefits for them
while we fall for a sleeve full of tricks,

you're feeding them.
we're feeding them.
Track Name: Electric Lights 2014-02-15
Take me out of these electric lights.
I want to go around a fire all night.
I want to whoop and I want to yell.
I want to go where nobody’s gonna tell.

Some things I dream in the middle of the day
I wouldn’t say ‘em out loud, no way.
I drive my car A to B, B to A.
I swear, I’ll set that path on fire some day.

I been dreamin’ about a free way,
And a grace that might actually amaze.

Take me out of these electric lights.
I want to go around a fire all night.
I want to whoop and I want to yell.
I want to go where nobody’s gonna tell.

I want to know that nobody’s gonna tell.
