    "Nearly 30 years after his first album, Gordon should be better known, as should Christensen, who was a staple in the Los Angeles punk and jazz scenes before her extraordinary collaborations with Leonard Cohen, and then a solo career. But these things happen. Now comes a record that adroitly fuses Christensen’s exploratory vocals with Gordon’s vividly drawn emotional and physical landscapes. The result brings out the best in both of them, especially in the way Christensen unearths veins of gold that were hiding in plain sight..." - Amos Perrine, NO DEPRESSION

about

“Find My Way” is the lead-off track on 11 From Kevin - Songs Of Kevin Gordon. It’s out on WireBird records January 21, 2022. East Nashville’s Kevin Gordon and Gwil Owen penned this song, and it appears on two of Gordon’s solo albums: “Salvage And Drift Vol. 1,” a collection made up of home demos and live versions of his songs from 1994-2009 - and the “O Come Look At The Burning” album from 2005. These are both very different versions of the song . My take is different yet again: a straight-ahead rocker with maybe a little southern rock influence. In my formative years in Iowa, my brothers and I were the first kids on our block with Z Z Top and Little Feat records. I recorded this song and eclectic album with my compadres throughout 2020, in fits and starts and distances and masks. It doesn’t sound as if that was the case. On the contrary.

lyrics

Find My Way
(©Kevin Gordon, Little Rain Music BMI & Gwil Owen, Turgid Tunes admin Bluewater BMI)

When the night comes creeping,

And my family’s sleeping
I slip out and take a ride

No destination, no woman waiting

Just a rage inside my mind

I’m feeling things I don’t understand

Baby can you sympathize

til I find my way

baby til I find my way


I think I’ll drive down to the river

Stare out at the lights of town

Sometimes a man will walk that bridge

Just to lay his lonesome down

I’m coming back home tonight

I’m just taking the long way around

til I find my way
baby, til I find my way


There’s hawks on my fence,
snakes in the grass

Change is a burning, blurring line

World’s got me crazy,
can you tell me baby

Why the cure’s always the compromise

There’s what you want, and what you need

What ties you down, what sets you free

til I find my way

baby, til I find my way
