Weekly Song Post number 177
'I Love You Mary Jane'
outtake from my 2006 release, Bones of the Tree

lyrics

they say happiness don't grow on trees
but your love grows wild and reckless like a weed
my heart buds forth like a swollen spring
when I walk through your fields of green

I drink you up until my cup runs high
you make me wanna sing when I feel like dying
I know you aint the solution to my woes
but this world is a whipping post and I'm getting stoned

you make my gray skies green
you're the sweetest thing I ever did see
I love you Mary Jane

for some your love is a cure
you help them see straight when their vision is blurred
you settle the stomach and ease the pain
why the man wanna keep you locked up in chains?

they say that to love you is a crime
too many who have known you are doing time
I guess I'll take your loving on the sly
with these smoke rings I take thee for my bride

you make my gray skies green
you're the sweetest thing I ever did see
I love you Mary Jane

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
