lyrics

No thunder, no lightning, we can barely call it rain
just a brown bird singing: no reason to complain.
You did the laundry and you shrunk my sweater sleeves;that brown bird was singing from our driveway full of leaves...

Hundreds of things in this crazy world, they break the heart of this city girl
that little brown bird, singing like she's praying
might not be much but I wouldn't trade it, I wouldn't trade it

I found your love note while you were out with your friends
that brown bird singing, that little winter wren
woke for a minute when you laid down last night
that brown bird was out there while we snuggled up tight...

Hundreds of things in this crazy world, they break the heart of this city girl
that little brown bird, singing like she's praying
might not be much but I wouldn't trade it, I wouldn't trade it

I steal the pillows, he steals the covers, that brown bird out there while we're waking one another
I make the coffee just a little too strong and that brown bird keeps coming back every time I think she's gone...

Hundreds of things in this crazy world, they break the heart of this city girl
that little brown bird, singing like she's praying
might not be much but I wouldn't trade it, I wouldn't trade it

about

Jes Raymond & The Blackberry Bushes Seattle, Washington

The Appalachian Mountains are the meeting place of the fiddle and the banjo, and musical culture permeates the entire length of the Mississippi River. The Blackberry Bushes are rooted in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound, but their work is infused with the essence of the homes they wandered West from.
They have a playful and resonant sound with both twang and sophistication.
