Port Chicago highway road
Drove all night long
Just to get back home
I don't want to stay in that city
I don't want to be alone

Watch her walking
With those eyes of gold
Through fire and water
Burning me down slow
I'll take you with me girl
Don't you want to go

Build our holler Up in the sun
Wait till morning
Before we start to run
Don't walk away now girl
Or all our hard work will be undone

Coal black water
Its Running slow
If it pulls me under
Don’t you let me go
Build our house up on that hill
Above that port Chicago highway road

"A very new and very exciting vision of the blues — a fusion of the Delta and their own haunted visions.

Exhilarating and mind-enchanting." —Cascade Blues Association ... more
