The Wood Brothers Nashville, Tennessee

'Paradise,' an album about longing and desire and the ways in which the pursuit of fulfillment can keep it perpetually out of our reach, is The Wood Brothers’ most sophisticated work to date and also their most rocking, with bassist Chris Wood playing electric on tracks for the first time. ... more

Track Name: Where My Baby Might Be
I was just killin’ time
Waitin’ on a train
Out back pitchin’ pennies
Tryin’ to stay out of the rain
Caught a southbound freight
Down to Memphis Tennessee
That’s where my baby might be
Well I hit the ground runnin’
On the outskirts of town
Walked down by the river
Just to take a look around
Met up with a stranger
He seemed to recognize me
That’s where my baby might be
Silhouette in the distance
Like I seen before
I walked down the street
And up to the door
If you drag that river
All the way to the sea
That’s where my baby might be
Track Name: When I Was Young
When I was young I didn't look at the clouds and hope for the rain
When I was young I didn't think this life should ever bring me sorrow
When I was young I thought someday everybody's goanna know my name
When I was young the hardest work I had was waitin' for tomorrow

When I was young I used to wake up early in the mornin'
When I was young I could climb up a mountain no matter how tall
When I was young I didn't listen to anybody's warnin'
When I was young I could jump I wasn't afraid to fall

Now I’m grown
And things are not exactly what they seem
The older I get
The less I know and the more I dream

When I was young I didn't worry ‘bout money in my pocket
When I was young I didn't think I’d every need to buy a diamond ring
When I was young I used to put my heart in a cage and lock it
When I was young I could talk about love but I didn't know a thing

Now I’m grown
And things are not exactly what they seem
The bigger I get
The smaller the world and the less it all means

When I was young I used to say my prayers without the feelin'
When I was young I didn't worry 'bout the things I couldn't understand
When I was young I didn't know anything about hurtin' and healin'
When I was young I guess I didn't believe I’d ever be a man

Now I’m grown
And things are not exactly what they seem
I think about God
And wonder does he think about me
Track Name: Spirit
I had to step into the jungle
Just to get my solitude
I need some juju
And I don’t know what to do
I’m tired of seein’ clouds
When all I need’s a drop of rain
I got my cuts and bruises
Now I’d like to feel the pain

CHORUS:
If the spirit moves you
If the spirit moves you
If the spirit moves you
Please won’t you send him
Please won’t you send him to me

Well how do you do that magic
What’s the secret what’s the spell
I tried to work it
But I just can’t do it well
I know I’m lucky to be in the jungle
Doin’ what I please
I got the birds I got the buds
I should just get down on my knees
But please

CHORUS
Track Name: Shoofly Pie
I’m gonna give you the wheel
I’m gonna let you drive
But you gotta make me
Some Shoofly pie
You gotta make me a Shoofly pie

Don’t forget the sweet molasses
'Cause I won't leave a crumb
Don’t you just sit there laughin'
When you know how bad I need some
You know how bad I need some of that

Shoofly pie/Shoofly pie/Shoofly pie

You can make it for me in the mornin'
I like it if it's hot or cold
Make it for me in the evenin'
Baby when the sun is gold
I like it in the evenin' when the sun is gold

You can make it when the house note's late
If you give it to me right on time
I’ll take it in the kitchen and the livin' room, driveway
I don’t mind if the house is on fire
Don’t care if the house is on fire
Just gimme that

Shoofly pie/Shoofly pie/Shoofly pie

I may be full of biscuits and wine
But I always have room for that
Shoofly

I like it in the middle of the night
Under the stars and the moon
I get so high on your ever-lovin' pie
I like it from June to June
I like it from June to June

Well I must be blessed cause I had the best
And I’ve seen the light comin' through your dress
And all my friends they understand why
I would kick and cry and I wouldn't mind dyin'
For just another piece of that heavenly beautiful

CHORUS
Track Name: Atlas
Halleluiah
Well I just woke up from a dream
So far away
And it’s no accident I landed here
Eyes wide open and seein’ clear
I have come a long long way
I am wiser now
My man Atlas told me
I shouldn’t try to hold his world up
He said boy you got some muscles
You have never used
All you got to do is go ahead and wake up

CHORUS:
Don’t you try to hold my world up
Don’t you try to hold my world
Don’t you try to hold my world up
Don’t you try to hold my world

Aphrodite
Well her suitcase was my burden
For so long
She said boy you got some heart and soul
But that’s not what your love is for
Lay your burden down and we’ll both be stronger

CHORUS
