  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    "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

lyrics

Goodnight Brownie Ford
(©Kevin Gordon, Little Rain Music BMI)


The old man’s face

A map of scars

Straw Stetson brim

Half Comanche

They called him Brownie

For his Indian skin



I met him once

In a cafe

In my hometown

In a corner singing

Black Jack David,

Don’t Let the Deal Go Down

We called him back for more

Goodnight Brownie Ford



Just a kid

Breaking horses

Working wild west shows

Rope and leather

Cards and money

Learning fast how the old song goes


Declared me dead twice, he said

But I never was that far gone

Yeah that saddle bronc dragged me to the gates of heaven

I couldn’t stay down long

Dying ain’t what living’s for

I snuck out that hospital ward

Goodnight Brownie Ford



Played his guitar

From here to far

Woodsmoke and campfire songs

Float up to the stars til the night is gone



I remember talking to him

More likely, he was talking to me--

Saying “Don’t let ‘em mess with your music

If you go to Tennessee”


As the fire flared and died

From his cigarette

And he looked me in the eye to ask

A riddle with his next breath--

All the free advice I could afford

Got in his car and closed the door

Goodnight Brownie Ford
