All caught up on the Calamity Jane single/release of the original version news on BJL blog/official website. Anyway you guys can make a link to dL the original version? I still plan on buying it on iTunes, but it would be cool to have both versions. Thanks for answering all my questions! Have a good night

Joy has only released one version of Calamity Jane so far (Soundcloud and the one on iTunes). This single is the same one that is titled Wicked Calamity Jane on the Your Woman album. We encourage everyone to buy the single on iTunes, even if Joy was nice enough to put it on Soundcloud. It’s a nice gesture to show her that fans appreciate her music and support her.:) 

Joy asked everyone to buy the song legally so we will not share download links, I’m sorry.

Do you know what's happening with her latest album? I know she had a limited Etsy sale for collectors like edition back at the end of 2013/early 2014, and sold physical copies in Paris/Europe during a OTH reunion. Now that Calamity Jane is on iTunes will BJL release the latest album super soon? The next few weeks soon?

We have no idea. We only know what Joy shares with everyone which is that she is working on her new album.

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

Simple Words/Nothing New - Bethany Joy Lenz (performed live @ RTS Concert 2012)

credit: Thanks to Becky for the mp3!

ETA: Updated with lyrics!

I never had a way with words
When they were coming out of my mouth
But you know I bite my tongue when the moments pass me by
I never had a manner about me that would make me wanna lie, too
But I just can’t get it out
Well I guess it’s been a while since I’ve been so caught up in someone
Like I could only do you justice with a pen and paper
I think a little longer when I know you’re coming in and
I run when you arrive

Cause I’ve got nothing new to say tonight

I wish I were a poet when we talked
I wish I were a dancer when we waltz
If I could be your lover I would
Ooh ahh with all my simple words now

I never got along with words when I was talking about myself
I get a little frozen now when you ask me how I feel
I get a little overwhelmed with things I shouldn’t do next
Your gaze just takes me down

I’ve got nothing new to say tonight

I wish I were a poet when we talked
I wish I were a dancer when we waltz
If I could be your lover I would
Ooh ahh with all my simple words and now

I wish I were a poet when we talked
I wish I were a dancer when we walz
If I could be your lover I would
Ooh ahh
I feel like a distant melody
I feel like I’m barely out of reach
And if I were your lover I would tell you tales
Of things you never touched with all my simple words
