Collaborations

I first met Lyn on Soundcloud, and loved her acapella pieces, full of deadly ambiguity in their lyrics.
Here was the whole American Tragedy.
Lyn encouraged collaborations, and had found lots of good downhome collaborators.
I knew I could do something different with her stuff, setting the songs in free improvised experimental settings.
So here is a collection of them - there could be more to come, who knows.

Track Name: Yes, I hurt you.
Yes, I hurt you

Wasted words on heads of stone
There you sit and I’m alone
Days are years as time goes on
Same old movie, same old song.

Yes I hurt you many years ago.
Why must we keep on walking down that road?
I’ve tried to mend what I did sow,
But you refused to let it go.
Track Name: Take him away
take him away-take him away-Lord,take him away---
there ain't no leavin a jealous man-don't you know I've tried-don't you know I've ran-he hunted me down- across the land-don't you know I tried-don't you know I ran---
Lord, take him away-take him away-Lord, take him away---
people say, "you ain't gotta stay."-but, they didn't hear just what he said.---
I'll kill your mom-I'll kill your dad-I'll shoot 'em down- just where they stand---
you know those kids -that your brother has-I'll kill 'em all-if you don't come back---
he took my breath- with his hands-just like that!-your life could end-so, don't you leave me again---

take him away-take him away-Lord, take him away---

there ain't no leavin' -a possessive man-don't you know I've tried-don't you know I've ran---
oh, my Lord, won't You understand-I'm makin' plans- to kill that man-You, better take me away-my body aches-my mind has strayed- think I could-take his life today-You better take me away---

people say, "you ain't gotta stay."-just up and leave- that man today-don't they know I've tried-don't they know I've ran-they look down at me-from where they stand-I feel their shame-hear their point of view-they think they know- just what they'de do-but, they haven't a clue---
take him away-take him away-Lord, take him away---

won't You understand-I'm makin' plans-to kill that man- really think I can-You better take me away-cause, I can't take another day-Lord, take me away
Track Name: Ten
Mama died when I was ten.
Daddy held her till the end,
I heard him cry all through the night.
And, slip away at mornings light.

Yes, mama died when I was ten.
She left my dad a broken man.
I heard him cry all through the night.
He slipped away at mornings light.

Oh, Mama died when I was ten.
She took my daddy with her then.
Father Time could never mend.
My despair when I was ten.
Track Name: Choctaw People
Choctaw People

"One thousand miles upon this earth
The Choctaw people walked it first.
They had no shoes upon their feet,
cold, and blistered they would bleed".
[The Trail of Tears by LK Ingram]

This piece combines two of Lyn’s Native American songs, ‘The Trail of Tears’, and ‘Hey Hey Watenay’.
