lyrics

Looking to find me a little job of my own
One that won’t tell me to stay off the phone
One that won’t direct me to the nearest credit store
And one that won’t kick me out -- as I walk past the door
Looking to find me a little home of my own

Home…. of my own
One that won’t trample down the broken fence
One that won’t dig down too deep - in the old soggy ditch
And one that already knows the way back home.
Looking to find me a little home of my own

Home…. of my own
Just A little truck that will run
Not jackknife and squeal
One that doesn’t sound too loud
And turn the driveway into an oil field

Home…. of my own
Just a little lady or a baby or a Bog dog
One that won’t bite my leg Or start to chew on my ear
As I listen to the thunder--that my baby girl fears
Looking to find me a little home of my own

Not too hard to find a log
One to sit upon for a little while
One that doesn’t have any bugs
Just loves to sit out in the damp woodpile

I Could go for a crooked boat
One that purrs and sleeps so soundly
It would know how to cook and clean
So me and my lady could continue madly
Looking to find me a little home of my own

I try not to worry too much about it
Throw away the plastic they send me for free
Those faraway places and those things they say I need
Are already held deep within me.

Cause I’ve already found myself
oh, I've already found myself
oh, I've already found myself
found myself a home of my own
found myself a little home of my own

about

Woodbrain Portland

"A very new and very exciting vision of the blues — a fusion of the Delta and their own haunted visions. In a way, when performing live they're like a classic jam band that can take a song and its theme for great lengths... but whatever they are, they're extremely innovative with a sound completely their own. Exhilarating and mind-enchanting." —Cascade Blues Association ... more
