Butchers Blind are a band that plays American Music. Their sound hearkens back to a simpler time before Rock & Roll was divided into a million small sub-genres and songwriting was still the order of the day. One may be able to hear the influences of Uncle Tupelo, Gram Parsons and The Band in their songs, but the real magic is how they blend these ingredients into a musical recipe all their own. Butchers Blind encompasses the rich history of American music, then broadens and reshapes it into

Red Rose

Written By: Seeger/Murdock

RED ROSE ( SEEGER/ MURDOCK)

NO ROSES FALLING DOWN
FROM ST. THERESA'S RUBY SKY
THIS WORLD IS BLOODY BROWN
I NEED TO SEE YOUR DIAMOND EYES
THIS KID FROM TENNESSEE
JUST FELL DOWN DEAD RIGHT NEXT TO ME

WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE

I SAW IT IN A DREAM
THAT BIG WHEELS GONNA SPIN MY WAY
THE SKY THAT GREW SO DARK
BURST AND SHOWERED ME WITH GRACE
I WAS STANDING ON A MOUNTAIN TOP
I WENT CRASHING THROUGH THE WINDOW OF A COFFEE SHOP

WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE

WE MARCH DOWN LOVERS LANE
AND SHAKE THE EARTH SO VIOLENTLY
NO SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS
JUST STATUETTES OF LIBERTY
I TAKE MY COFFEE BLACK AND BLUE
NOTHING HERE CHANGES WITHOUT YOU

WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE
WAITING FOR THE RED ROSE

Trust in You

Written By: Seeger

TRUST IN YOU (SEEGER)

THE AIRS SO SWEET TONIGHT
THE MOON HANGS LOW AND BRIGHT
I'VE GIVEN UP EVERYTHING I HAD IN MIND

YES I'VE BEEN SHAKEN DOWN
BUT YOU PICKED ME OFF THE GROUND
IM LEAVING MY OLD SELF SO FAR BEHIND

IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
TAKING MY HANDS OFF THE WHEEL
FOR REAL THIS TIME

IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
IM BETTING ON YOUR WOUNDED SMILE
WITH MY LAST DIME
GONNA TRUST IN YOU

EATING CROW AND SIPPING TEARS
SEEMS FUNNY NOW WITH YOU HERE
TEARING MY MEMORIES INTO SHREDS

BLESSED BE YOUR APRON STRINGS
YOUR KISS SO DIZZYING
PAINTED LIPS SO VERY CHERRY RED

IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
TAKING MY HANDS OFF THE WHEEL
FOR REAL THIS TIME

IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
IM GONNA TRUST IN YOU
IM BETTING ON YOUR WOUNDED SMILE
WITH MY LAST DIME
GONNA TRUST IN YOU

BLESSED BE YOUR APRON STRINGS
YOUR KISS SO DIZZYING
PAINTED LIPS SO VERY CHERRY RED

One Side of Love

Written By: Seeger/Murdock

ONE SIDE OF LOVE (SEEGER/ MURDOCK)

WHAT CAN I DO NOW
TO GET THROUGH TO YOU
I DONT KNOW
WHAT WOULD I FIND
IF I FINALLY LET MYSELF GO

MUST I SLEEPWALK ALL ALONE
OR WILL YOU BE THERE BY MY SIDE
IM NOT CONTENT TO BE
THE ONE THAT YOU CANT SEE
OPEN THOSE BIG GREEN EYES

ONE SIDE OF LOVE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH
ONE SIDE OF LOVE AINT FAIR
ONE IS FOREVER
ONE JUST GOES NOWHERE

WHATS THAT WORD THERE ON YOUR TONGUE
IS IT CURIOSITY
IM NOT CONTENT TO STAY
JUST HOW WE ARE TODAY
NOT KNOWING IS MUCH WORSE FOR ME

ONE SIDE OF LOVE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH
ONE SIDE OF LOVE AINT FAIR
ONE IS FOREVER
ONE JUST GOES NOWHERE

WHAT CAN I DO NOW
TO GET THROUGH TO YOU
I DONT KNOW
WHAT WOULD I FIND
IF I FINALLY LET MYSELF GO

I WOULD WALTZ RIGHT UP TO YOU
AND TELL YOU ANYTHING AT ALL
