Biography

Multi-instrumentalist Jacqui Haggerty has been making a footprint on the Greensboro music scene in the recent year through a number of eclectic projects. One of her bands, called Jacqui and the Woodsides, has found success in the pop/americana realm, appearing on the WFMY local news morning show and playing regularly at popular venues in Greensboro. Her newest project features the same repertoire, this time translated through the beautiful arrangements of strings, her songs adorned with lulling violin and bowing upright bass lines. Her songcraft ranges from the head-bobbing, light-hearted pop song to the introspective, heart-breaking love ballad. Haggerty writes such a vast collection of music that she is sure to find musical connection in almost anyone, and is sure to break out of the local music scene onto a bigger canvas soon.

Lyrics

Know You

Written By: Jacqui Haggerty

Why should we spend all this time feeling lonely?
Like we gotta find the one, the only
That's not the way my Mama taught me to have fun
Won't you take my hand and we can go somewhere
You can tell me, tell me 'bout your love affairs
We can fill the air. We can fill the air.
I just wanna know your heart
I just wanna know your heart
You can take me right back to the start
I just wanna know your heart.

My darling friend, I wish you wouldn't dwell
On the things that make you feel unwell.
You've got a gorgeous heart, but I feel I'm not a part
You're distracted. I can see it in your eyes.
Tell me how to get through. Tell me how to get through.

Why should we spend all this time feeling lonely?
Like we gotta find the one, the only
That's not the way my Mama taught me to have fun
Won't you take my hand and we can go somewhere
You can tell me, tell me 'bout your love affairs
We can fill the air. We can fill the air.
I just wanna know your heart
I just wanna know your heart
You can take me right back to the start
I just wanna know your heart.

History King

Written By: Jacqui Haggerty

I loved my Grandpa for all that he was
He had lines and his face, and varicose veins
But I didn't see the old man that most would see
I saw Grandpa the Pilot, The History King.

He said darlin' come over, come sit on my knee
The Irishman coined me his baby colleen
I'll tell you a story of days gone by
Of War and my buddies when we used to fly

He said darlin' when I was young
I dropped bombs on the bridges of premature men
and when all of it was said and done
all that was left was a Purple Heart, Purple Heart pin.

When the handsome young lad returned to his wife
She took him and kissed him with all of her might
They started a family in Franklin Square
And their children would follow with settling there

He said darlin' when I was young
I dropped bombs on the bridges of premature men
and when all of it was said and done
all that was left was a Purple Heart, Purple Heart pin.

I loved my Grandpa for all that he was
He had lines and his face, and varicose veins
But I didn't see the old man that most would see
I saw Grandpa the Pilot, The History King.
