SWAMPERS AT FAME

I want the swampers at fame, but I’ll settle for that laptop, boys
Caught in a hurricane, almost everything’s background noise
At night I ride the rails but I wake up tied to the track
And when those sad winds wail, I wake up a second time from that

I was a rodeo legend, 23 in ‘87 just a saddle bum
Now I’m a long, tall daddy riding south for Tallahassee on a cattle run
I drive a Maxima...

I want the swampers at fame, but I’ll settle for that laptop, boys
Caught in a hurricane, almost everything’s background noise
At night I ride the rails but I wake up tied to the track
And when those sad winds wail, I wake up a second time from that

You were a piss poor beauty in a thrift store, ooh we figured fuck ‘em all
Mariana to Missoula, everybody knew that you were just a wrecking ball
And only 5 foot tall…

I tried to take you away
Even though I knew you wouldn’t stay
Now I think about you every day
Wishing there was something I could say

I want the swampers at fame, but I’ll settle for that laptop, boys
Caught in a hurricane, almost everything’s background noise
At night I ride the rails but I wake up tied to the track
And when those sad winds wail, I wake up a second time from that

I never wanted any daughter but I love her more than anything I’ve ever loved
And now you’re headed for the border, hoping you can find the water of the seven doves
Conquistadores dug…

Muhammad Seven Boston, Massachusetts

Muhammad Seven is an Iranian-American singer/songwriter from Boston. 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
