I am the King of Cotton
I'm on the levee side
Never will I mate or marry
No maiden, an easy bride
no more
no more
no more

Red skeleton bones that built me
Roll round in their painted pins
my tribe has a longing language
Blood's high when the water's thin
Oh Lord
Oh Lord
Oh Lord

Play me my life on your concertina
Play me my life on your tambourine
Spin me a yarn from your pastures greener
Say it's all alright

Play me my life on your snare drum, soldier
Play me my life on your violin
I'll be a swan, though I'm ever older
Say it's all alright

Heather Christian & The Arbornauts, the brainchild of Miss Christian & 5 of the most virtuosic boy prodigies she could find, pull from the traditional gospel canon in tandem with circus music, noise rock & good old fashioned feeling good.
