about

Barreling full-steam out of trad Old-Time into the urban environs of Oakland, CA, with side trips into a global percussive dance scene, Evie brings deep roots to collaboration with the BAND. Tenacious, innovative string musicians/dancers with a quirky neo-trad soul, the ELB throws down a new folk music with an unusually creative and surprising live show.

Track Name: Got You On My Mind
Got you on my mind, nobody but you
Got you on my mind, no one else will do
Never could be, no never I'd find
Another for me, Got you on my mind

Got you on my mind, whatever I do
Got you on my mind, I keep thinking of you
Often it seems you leave me behind
With only my dreams, got you on my mind

You're making me sad, leaving, it's true
It makes me so glad, being with you
Surely you see, could you be so blind
What's happened to me, Got you on my mind

Got you on my mind, nobody but you
Got you on my mind, no one else will do
No never could be, no never I'd find
Another for me, got you on my mind

You're making me sad, leaving, it's true
It makes me so glad, being with you
Surely you see, could you be so blind
What's happened to me, Got you on my mind.
Track Name: Down to the Door/Lost Girl
Come down from the mountains to the rolling hills
Where the mist settles in the valley
And corn grows on cold limestone
Come down to the door of my home
Come down to the door of my home

Head up over the Smokies up the blue highway to me
Tobacco barns and bluegrass rolls up 273
Come up now and come alone
Come down to the door of my home

Come down from the mountains to the rolling hills
Where the mist settles in the valley
And corn grows on cold limestone
Come down to the door of my home

The wind is warm and so am I, I'm waiting for you dear
In the pines you'd be mine if only you'd come here
Come up now and come alone
Come down to the door of my home

Come down from the mountains to the rolling hills
Where the mist settles in the valley
And corn grows on cold limestone
Come down to the door of my home
Track Name: He's Not Alone
He visits, and drives the long hours to his home
I call him to tell him that he is not alone
Though I'm travelin round, and I, I gotta go
I call him to tell him that he is not alone

We rarely see face to face, and then not eye to eye
But for when we're arm in arm I won't say goodbye
Though I'm miles away and I won't say where I'm going
I call him to tell him that he is not alone

No he's not alone, he's the one who holds my heart
I'm sorry I make him worry, but I got to play my part
He clocks his hours with friends and family
Maybe the only one alone, is me.

He wants to take me to be his one and only bride
I can't spend my lifetime settled down, inside
His eyes hold the sweetest love I've known
So I call him to tell him that he is not alone

No he's not alone, he's the one who holds my heart
I'm sorry I make him worry, but I've got to play my part
He clocks his hours with friends and family
Maybe the only one alone, is me.

He clocks his hours with friends and family
Maybe the only one alone, is me.
Track Name: Weathering
The weather makes me think of you
I'm falling in love with the rain
Looking out the windowpane
Thinking of the storm that came
With you

Once I was running through a desert
No shade, worn out shoes
The sun pours its heat, I'm cracked and I'm beat
But I'm on the move

But nothing comes on like weathering
Weathering will roll you around
Rocks ain't so steady, and before you're ready
Time will wear down a stone

The air is coming on thick now
White sky turns to gray
Storm clouds they gather, pushing right at me and
The wind blows my dust away

But nothing comes on like weathering
Weathering will roll you around
Rocks ain't so steady, before you're ready
Time will wear down a stone

Raindrops, they come on fast now
Blue lines crack above
Fat drops they fall, washing us all
With love

Nothing comes on like weathering
Weathering will roll you around
Rocks ain't so steady, before you're ready
Time will wear down a stone

The weather makes me think of you
I'm falling in love with the rain.
Track Name: 5 Below
5 below

This is how it is done
You walk then you run
they say
they say

this is how it will be
before you, it’s me
they say
they say

Oh what a storm racing down from the sky
We’re almost home but it’s covered in ice
Ice on the window it’s cold in my skin
Deep in my bones I can feel it
I feel it, and I know
What it is to be 5 below

This is how it is done
We have never won
they say
they say

this is how it will be
life of misery
they say
they say

The tunnel is gone when there’s light in your eyes,
The window’s defrosting we clear off the ice
I’m quitting shivering one at a time
If I stop dancing I’ll feel it
I feel it, and I know
What it is to be 5 below
Track Name: Shadow of the Pines
We had wandered in the shadow of the pines
The moon looked down on you and me
And a darkness stole across the summer sky
And a shadow came between my love and me

Oh, darling, come love me as before
Come back to leave me nevermore
At that spot I'm sad and lonesome
And the sun no longer shines
Come and meet me in the shadow of the pines

Oh, you went away and left me and my tears I could not hide
You went away and not a word was said
While my throbbing heart was breaking underneath its load of pride
And the pine trees sobbed in pity o'er my head

Oh, darling, come love me as before
Come back to leave me nevermore
At that spot I'm sad and lonesome
And the sun no longer shines
Come and meet me in the shadow of the pines

All our future is o'er shadowed by the darkness of despair
And across life's path the sun no longer shines
Oh, I'd give this whole world gladly once again to meet you there
And reunite in the shadow of the pines

Oh, darling, come love me as before
Come back to leave me nevermore
At that spot I'm sad and lonesome
And the sun no longer shines
Come and meet me in the shadow of the pines
Track Name: Dime Store Glasses
I'm gonna buy you a pair of dime store glasses so you can read the letter I wrote
I'm gonna buy you a pair of dime store glasses so you can read the letter I wrote
I'm not gonna tell you what it said
What's rolling around in my head

I'm gonna buy me a pair of dark sunglasses so you can't see my eyes been cryin
I'm gonna buy me a pair of dark sunglasses so you can't see my eyes been cryin
Oh, how i feel
This pain is so real

I'm gonna dust off my old brandy glasses, pour myself a stiff cocktail
I'm gonna dust off my old brandy glasses, pour myself a stiff cocktail
Put on some old southern blues
Gonna dance around in my shoes

I'm gonna buy you a one way ticket to Memphis, you go tell them all what you did
I'm gonna buy you a one way ticket to Memphis, you go tell them all what you did
I'm putting on those southern blues
Gonna dance around in my shoes
Cause I'm so lonely living with you I'd rather be living alone
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Track Name: The First Time
The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
The moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless nights, my love,
To the dark and the endless nights.

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command

The first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart beat so close to mine
And I knew that our joy, it would fill the earth
It would last till the end of time, my love
It would last, till the end of time, my love
It would last, till the end of time

The first time ever I saw your face, your face,
your face, your face
Track Name: Sugarbabe
Ain't got no use for the little red rocking chair
Got no sugar baby now
Got no honey baby now

Laid me in the shade, gave him every dime I made
Got no sugar baby now
Got no honey baby now

Who'll rock that cradle, and who'll sing that song
Who'll rock the cradle when IÕm gone
Got no sugar baby now

I'll rock that cradle, and I'll sing that song
I'll rock the cradle when youÕre gone
Got no sugar baby now

It's all I can do, and it's all I can say
Can't make a living this a-way
Got no sugar baby now
Got no honey baby now
Got no sugar baby now
Track Name: Coffeeshop
I went into the coffeeshop the coffeeshop was hoppin
People on their laptops, the brews they were poppin
I found a little corner, an outlet by the wall
Riggin up my station to work my information
The boys they're looking round, the girls they're lookin too
And everybody's hummin with that rocket booster juice

Coffeeshop
Coffeeshop

Once there was an office with a lonely percolator
We stood there for a minute, its like I'll see you later
Now I got an office anywhere I'm pluggin in
Buzzin in the hubbub with a double cappuccino
You know the coffeeshop is firing up the scene
We go into the coffeeshop, let off all our steam

Coffeeshop
Coffeeshop

We're all just a giggin and a trying to keep it real
When I'm in the coffeeshop I know just how I feel
The corner shop's my stop in for a tidy little roast
grind it really fine, and grind a little more
Let it drip slowÉÉÉ..
Add a little foamÉÉ..

Coffeeshop
Coffeeshop

Double shot whip cream caramel macchiato
Triple tall non-fat soy Americano
Quad vente iced white mocha hold the sprinkles
Slow roast espresso, lemon on the rim
Half-caf latte, foam you write my name on
A demitasse, a single shot, fair trade Columbian
