WSP_0182_Ginsoak Baby [Live]

from by Jonathan Burks



I'm in the process of sorting thru and reorganizing all of my media files. Good lord, what a mess. I'm determined to get it all straightened out and keep it that way but it's going to be a process. I have no idea when or where this was recorded. Well, I have a bit of an idea, somewhere in Riverwest in 2008 or 2009.

This was a request from Greg in Melbourne, Australia. He wanted to here something more rocking and rowdy off of Brown Paper Bag. Here ya go homey (that's American for mate)!

Thanks for signing up!!



hold me like you hold your liquor
hold me like you hold your gun
ride me like a freight train baby
be my honey buns
you and me's two peas in a pod
two drunks in a brown paper bag
i know i can't quite drink like you
but i can still hang

gin soak baby
my gin soak girl
apple schnapps of my eye
rye whiskey of my world
here's to you my darlin
a toast to you my friend
when we get together girl
the good times never end

you're smarter than most and tougher than the rest
sexy as you wanna be and cool as a pimp
long as I'm being honest, sometimes you're a total bitch
somehow it suits you honey, don't ya change a bit

you're complex like a russian novel
you've got depth in spades
you blush at the silliest of things yet you really don't care what nobody say
you're classy and brassy, a woman to the core
a feminist to the nth degree without the pomp and bore

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here:

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!
