Son Volt

. Thursday, May 25, 2006

One of my "new" favorite bands is Son Volt. They aren't "new" because they've been around for over 10 years, but I recently discovered them by borrowing one of my coworker's cds. I've got a fairly eclectic taste in music but country music is NOT typically a genre I like. I've seen Son Volt classified as rockabilly and alternative country. All I know is that they ROCK!!! Here are the song lyrics from a song on their most recent album Okemah and the Melody of Riot.

Jet Pilot
Jet pilot for the day
Washed his sins away
Loves to see the Rangers play
His daddy has a job in Washington
Wants to raise a Harvard son
Junior liked to let his hair down
Only trouble is, word gets around

Revolution will be televised
across living rooms
and the great divide
Robbing barren ghettos
for us now
everybody needs a hunting ground

Jet Pilot flown away
Got a passing grade
Made it to the world stage
A hemisphere away
Death is on display
The sins would never wash away
Junior liked to let his hair down
Only trouble is,
word gets around

Revolution will be televised
across living rooms
and the great divide
Robbing barren ghettos
for us now
everybody needs a hunting ground

Junior liked to let his hair down
Only trouble is,
word gets around
