lyrics

Saffron Stew

Fishbone fry
Double-yolk egg
Saffron stew
Honey pie babe

Hometown hickory
Walking on a rickety
Bridge on a river
When the road gets sick of me

Sad old cook
Paperback book
Wanna hang his old hat but he can’t stay put
Flame on the pot real low
Gonna cook it real slow (x 4)

Hominy hash
Rappe pie blues
Bowl full of soul and a
Head full of tunes

Midnight trickery
Cook a pot of fricassee
Fast with the devil
‘Cause he’s so damned finicky

fly all night on a midnight flight
I think I will but I know I might
City lights shine below
Gonna cook it real slow (x 4)


[bridge]

I poached my heart in vinegar
To see how it would feel
I think I need a minister
To help me plan the meal…

Oh…

Sycamore soup
Pickle juice jam
Peanut butter cookie
with a pretty suntan

Grey-eyed sugarpie
Every time I make her cry,
Let her wipe her boogers on my jeans and my levis
5 AM at the family farm
the rooster crows at the break of dawn
turn all the lights down low
Gonna cook it real slow (x 4)

[musical breakdown]

heartbreak bread
buttermilk roux
ain’t no telling
what a man gon’ do

sky high
sugar pie
got a lot of people I love…

And I love you
I love you
But I’m gonna let my love light glow
Gonna cook it real slow (x 4)

His narrative lyricism pays as much homage to Hafiz and Saadi as it does to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, with deeply personal and political statements nestled amongst metaphors and vivid specificity. You might also listen carefully for the unmistakable influence of ‘90’s era hip-hop. ... more
