Xmas Time In Jessup I'm stuck here in prison behind these old brick walls Down here by the railroad tracks where Jessup made his cut He took two hundred thousand tons of clay to clear them Made the walls too high for happy Christmas nights It's Christmas time in Jessup. We're all locked up at the Cut. Barbwire hangs instead of Christmas lights [last time to outro] I'm hunkered down in a jail cell. And no one gives a shit. My lawyer's on vacation, can't get me out of it. OUTRO: ...in prison here tonight. Why I shot that man in Fells Point no one understands I guess I had it comin' guess it changed all my plans Instead of Christmas Stockings I got prison socks and bread. Bad meat loaf in the oven bad thoughts inside my head. Now I am such an old man and I'll never see the light. That man I shot in Fells Point...I should have never had that fight. The girl she up and married; Now my lawyer's second wife. Another lonely Christmas … for me tonight. © 2016 winkte music/ascap
Dear Santa 02:32
When Santa Was A Pagan When Santa was a pagan we had so much fun We danced around the fire until we saw the sun The moon was full and glowing as we danced under the light When Santa was a pagan we danced all through the night When Santa was a pagan our life was filled with joy We ate the sacred mushroom no cheap commercial toys We stopped to smell the cedar embrace the Mystery When Santa was a pagan we worshiped at the Tree When Santa was a pagan all the children sang They danced and sang and worshiped and never saw their shame Rome stole away our Christmas and left us with the blame When Santa was a pagan the devil stole his name The world is filled with trouble and all of life's a sin Or so they try to tell us the sin is being pagan So now we all got Christmas but the spirit burns like gas When Santa was a pagan...

She speaks to us about the deepest issues. Issues that all of us should care about, but so many of us pretend don’t affect us.” ~ Candye Kane ... more
