Love is Driving... Julie Christensen In the bed of your old pickup Smells like rain in the mountains Draw the clouds on my eyes (Kiss me quick) And paint my face like the evening sky Take me down and follow me up high In the bed of your old pickup Closer to the stars in the mountains I'll hum the blues in your ears (Kiss me quick) We'll take the road slow till we're in the clear We're gonna ride and love is gonna steer In the bed of your old pickup I'll be riding up the mountain with my hair flying Hold my hand up in the air to feel the wind Turn down your radio and sing to me of the road And the road can be the rhythm And the road'll be the rhythm And the road'll be the rhythm And the road'll be the rhythm In the bed of your old pickup It's late at night in the mountains Oh, lay down with me (Kiss me quick) Take a moonbath and feel like falling I do not hear the city calling From the bed of your old pickup Not from the bed of your old pickup Love is Driving

Thunderhead Julie Christensen I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain I can't eat unless you cook for me, baby All day long I sit and watch the clouds form I don't know what keeps me goin' this way I could get blown away or drown in that storm Oh honey you love me like you don't know when to quit Somebody opened up the floodgates this time I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain But then you tumbled instead Out of a Thunderhead Out of a Thunderhead Yours is the voice I hear before I go to sleep And I dream about you all night long And then I wake up just so I can think about you and me And the ground we walk is rumblin' so strong Aw well it feels all warm and peaceful out Just about to bust wide open like a landmine I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain But then you tumbled instead Out of a Thunderhead Well it's not like I had to seek you out Cause you've been close by close by close by Ooh and one kiss is all I'm talkin' about And I know why I know why I know why I know why I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain But then you tumbled instead Out of a Thunderhead Oh I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain I just wanted a little rain All I wanted was a little rain....

There's a lotta Blues on My Street And I just couldn't sleep So I walked all up and down the street Trying to lose some To make me feel better There's a lotta Blues on My Street And I still couldn't sleep So I walked all around trying to get some To maybe make me feel better A pink and yellow cartoon girl Is looking out of my window On to the technicolor neighborhood One color we all got in our world And that is blue There's a lotta Blues on My Street And I still couldn't sleep So I walked all up and down the block trying to find some To maybe make me feel better Here come the blues to my head Creeping in through my window On to the patterns of my dreams One color we all got in our bed And that is blue Tiny blue balloons on the sidewalk Dying that makes no sense Black and blues Bandanna blues Choose your blues Oh. There's a lotta Blues on My Street And I still couldn't sleep So I walked all around trying to get some To maybe make me feel better

about

Julie Christensen Jemez Springs, New Mexico

Julie Christensen’s story is woven into decades of Roots Music. A veteran of Leonard Cohen’s bands, she co-fronts post- punk rockers Divine Horsemen, which rebooted to release new work in 2021.
In lockdown in 2020, she decided someone should record an entire collection of Kevin Gordon songs. The result, 11 From Kevin, will be released early 2022 on WireBird Records.
