NEW SINGLE RELEASE!!
While I’m reworking my album, here’s a little teaser.  This song will sound totally different on the new record, but I thought you’d enjoy hearing this version, which was released on my special edition printed record that I sold on Etsy last winter.  ”Calamity Jane” ought to be up on iTunes within the next few days.  In the meantime, have a listen here…
(if you like the song, please buy *legally* on iTunes in a few days!) xoBJL

Before this song gets broken down into a raw, outlaw-country sound on my upcoming record, I’m releasing here the original country rock version of Calamity Jane for the fans.

CALAMITY JANE
The Gypsy dances in circles and beckons your ear
She knows your fancy, divines how to play to you fear
She’s lost and she’s lonesome and wounds everyone that she’s near
But I love her just the same, wicked Calamity Jane

Sparkling eyes are so tender and so terrified
She bites you before you can love her, before you can even try
She’s up and she’s down and she’ll leave you the second you fight
But I miss her just the same, wicked Calamity Jane

Come on, come out to the fire, the fire burns with or without you
Come on come out from the Alamo, you know it doesn’t protect you
Come on come out to the fire, the fire burns with or without out
So lay down, lay down, lay down, lay down your gun

She stares at the ghosts because power can make you anything (well, many things)
She listens intently to voices that make her emotions sing
But she can’t be that far gone, I’m not that far behind
No I can’t be that far gone, she’s not that far behind

Come on, come out to the fire, the fire burns with or without you
Come on come out from the Alamo, you know it doesn’t protect you
Come on come out to the fire, the fire burns with or without out
So lay down, lay down, lay down, lay down your gun
