OIL (ALYSIA KRAFT)

THE SIGN SAYS, “SINNERS USE THE BACKDOOR,
WON’T BE NO EXCEPTION TILL THE NEXT RESSURECTION.”
TOWN NO BIGGER THAN A CRATER
HIT BY A MOON ROCK
GOD PLAYING HOPSCOTCH

FOR NOW EVERYONE IS SLEEPING
NO POLITIC OR PREACHIN
NO HUNGRY MOUTHS PLEADIN
BUT A PROPHET RIDES, ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
BIG HOLLOW EYES, CARBON HYDROGEN AND HELLFIRE

CHORUS
BLACK MAGIC
BUBBLING UNDERNEATH THE SOIL
BLACK MAGIC
GONNA MAKE YOUR BLOOD BOIL
BLACK MAGIC
BUBBLING UNDERNEATH THE SOIL
BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER
BUT IT AINT AS THICK
AS OIL

YESSIR, YOU BET HE’S AN OIL MAN
GOT THE PERFECT PLAN FOR THIS WATER-STARVED WASTELAND
FARMERS, WITH YOUR SKIN AND BONES CHILDREN
SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE, EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE

BUT NOW THE NATION’S GOT A NEW ADDICTION
BETTER THAN RELIGION
BOYS YOU BETTER GET IN
BLACK SMOKE, CHOKIN’ UP A BLUE SKY
TEARIN’ UP A BLUE EYE
DADDY NEVER SAID, G’BYE

CHORUS

OIL- OH, OH, OH OH OH
OIL- OH, OH, OH, OH, OH

DRY, DRANK
DRIER THAN A DIRT ROAD, DRIER THAN A PILE OF BONES
AIN’T NO GOING HOME
DRY, DRANK
DRIER THAN A DIRT ROAD, DRIER THAN A PILE OF BONES
AIN’T NO GOING HOME

COMRADE, TURNED COMMODITY
NO PROFIT IN THIS PROPHESY
NONE THAT YOU’LL EVER SEE
COMRADE, TURNED COMMODITY
LITTLE BLACK MAGIC
TOOK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.

The Patti Fiasco Fort Collins, Colorado

Jet-fueled by powerhouse front woman Alysia Kraft, The Patti Fiasco delivers a brash yet fiercely soulful brand of rock and roll with a heavy dose of rockabilly, blues, and ballad. At times raw and volatile, and at others, sweet and lilting, the band fuses a hard-rock swagger with the two-step of its Wyoming roots. ... more
