lyrics

ON, JAKE
WE GOT TO GO
CAN’T YOU SEE THAT PECAN SHAKE?
DON’T YOU HEAR THAT THUNDER ROLL?
ON, JAKE
OH, WE GOT TO GO

WELL, THE SKY’S BLACK AS MUD
THERE’S A STORM ON THE RISE
YEAH, THE SKY’S BLACK AS MUD
THERE’S A STORM ON THE RISE
IF I DON’T GET SWALLOWED BY THE FLOOD
I JUST MIGHT MAKE IT OUT ALIVE

SO, ON, JAKE
WE GOT TO GO
CAN’T YOU SEE THAT SKY BREAK?
DON’T YOU FEEL THAT WIND A BLOW?
ON, JAKE
OH, WE GOT TO GO

I’M JUST TRYIN’ TO EARN MY BREAD
OH, I’M TRYIN’ TO MAKE MY PAY
I’M JUST TRYIN’ TO EARN MY BREAD
OH, I’M TRYIN’ TO MAKE MY PAY
IF I DON’T TURN UP DEAD
WELL, I’LL SURE BE GLAD I PRAYED
SO LORD WON’T YOU PLEASE
SHUT OFF YOUR WATER HOSE?
OH LORD WON’T YOU PLEASE
SHUT OFF YOUR WATER HOSE?
WELL, I’D GET DOWN ON MY KNEES
BUT I’D BE IN UP TO MY NOSE

SO, ON, JAKE
WE GOT TO GO
THE WHOLE CITY’S WIDE AWAKE
CAN’T YOU HEAR THE SIRENS MOAN?
ON, JAKE
OH, WE GOT TO GO

NOW, IF YOU AIN’T NEVER HEARD
I SUPPOSE YOU’VE NEVER KNOWN
YEAH, IF YOU AIN’T NEVER HEARD
I SUPPOSE YOU’VE NEVER KNOWN
WELL, I WAS FLYIN’ LIKE A BIRD
NOW I’M FLOATIN’ LIKE A LOAN
YOU WANT A RAINBOW IN YOUR SKY
WITH COLORS YOU CAN CHOOSE
YOU WANT A RAINBOW IN YOUR SKY
WITH COLORS YOU CAN CHOOSE
OH, BUT I AIN’T GONNA LIE
ALL I GOT’S THE BLUES

about

Justin Pickard Dallas, Texas

In the course of Justin Pickard’s musical pilgrimage, his songwriting has covered a gamut of subjects: smoking and drinking, the ins and outs of grave-robbery, love and loss, and UFOs that resemble bananas. These subjects in any other writer’s care may not coalesce as seamlessly as they do in the hands of Pickard, who ties them together with wit, passion and heart.

-Jamie Vahala, Dallas Observer
