about

If there was ever any doubt about why we wanted to release this recording, the dueling solos between James & Savannah on this track should put it all to rest.

This was only the 3rd or 4th time the band had ever played this song as I'd thrown it on them just a few days before the show. The looseness shows for sure, but I don't think I'd want it any other way . . . I only regret that we hadn't turned one mic to the crowd and/or invited them all on stage with us so you could hear their beautiful ahh-ing.

This one will be on the upcoming/in-process album as well.

lyrics

Your mama came to my house last night
She was completely naked and full of fright
And your daddy came to my house last night too

They asked how long should they stay?
I said "I don't care if you never go away"

Your sister came to my house last night
Crying about some man
The man, he came to my house last night too
Crying about you

They asked how long should they stay?
I said "I don't care if you never go away"

By the time that your brother arrived
And found your family on the couch
All curled and huddled in a cuddling puddle
The winter sun was peeking out

Jesus came to my house last night
I said "no thank you, sir, I'm doing alright"
He said "please! please! I need somewhere to go"
Said "I've been running all night, and I run too slow"

He asked how long should he stay
I said "stay all night if you're gonna play nice"
