Dave Alvin - Ashgrove Lyrics


(Blue Horn Toad Music, BMI)


Well when I was a young boy
I used to slip away
Down to the ashgrove
To hear the old blues men play
There was Big Joe and Lightniní
And Reverend Gary too
Well Iíd sit and stare and dream
Of doiní what they could do.

Well itís been thirty years since the ashgrove burned down
And Iím out on this highway traveliní town to town
Tryiní to make a liviní
Tryiní to pay the rent
Tryiní to figure out where my life went.

I wanna go back to the ashgrove
Thatís where I come from
I wanna go back to the ashgrove
Thatís where I belong.

Well you donít have to go searchiní
Pretend to put on airs
ĎCause the blues are gonna find you someday, somewhere
Now my motherís gone
Now my fatherís gone
And all the old blues men have all passed on
And Iím out on this highway traveliní town to town
Settiní up my gear and then Iím teariní it down
Turniní up my guitar
Standiní on the stage
Iím just tryiní to raise the ghosts up out of their graves.

I wanna go back to the ashgrove
Thatís where I come from
Yeah I wanna go back to the ashgrove
Thatís where I belong.

Well I canít say I been all sinner
Canít say I been all saint
Iíve done some good deeds and Iíve made big mistakes
I been in and out of love
Said words I regret
I been drunk, been sober
Smoked too many cigarettes
And Iím out on this highway traveliní town to town
And the news on the radio just brings me down
Intolerance and fear
Ignorance and lies
Itís the same old same old I heard a million times
And Iím thinkiní of friends and lovers
And how they come and go
Like look-alike houses on the side of the road
Full of everyday people tryiní to get ahead
Tryiní to find a reason just to get out of bed
ĎCause we all need somethiní just to get us through
Well Iím gonna play the blues tonight man
ĎCause thatís what I do.

Iím goiní back to the Ashgrove
Thatís where I come from
Iím goiní back to the Ashgrove
Thatís where I belong.
