There’s a garden the Devil owns Her roots run deep, her story old Didn’t have mischief on my mind Til I saw her ruby red light The grapes of wrath, a dancing flame Jezabelling lowly moths who stray Her price is high but it looks free The Devil’s Garden got its claws on me Here I go again, always playing in The Devil’s Garden Welcomed like a friend, I do my reveling in The Devil’s Garden A kind gatekeeper let me through Friendly faces that’s how they get you With silken chains she drew me in And now I beg to do her every whim I can’t find the exit gate The Devil’s Garden blinds all who play Here I go again always playing in The Devil’s Garden She is not my friend, but still I revel in The Devil’s Garden She dresses for her company Just to hide her wolf like teeth She has a way to keep your eyes Fixed on her and filled with desire Here I go again, I’m always playing in The Devil’s Garden Here I go again, always playing in The Devil’s Garden Welcomed like a friend, I do my reveling in The Devil’s Garden Here I go again, always playing in The Devil’s Garden Here I go again always playing in The Devil’s Garden She is not my friend, but still I revel in The Devil’s Garden There’s a garden the Devil owns Her roots run deep, her story old

Oh Lord I’m trying to pray It’s been so long I don’t know what to say Oh Lord I’m trying to pray It’s been so long I don’t know what to say I’ve been a freeloading fool, Living for selfish gain I don’t deserve forgiveness, But I know I wanna change Now I’m down in a deep black pit, Wiping away my tears There’s no light there’s no sound, If I ask Lord will you hear Oh Lord I’m trying to pray It’s been so long I don’t know what to say Only you can lift me up And take away this bitter cup I’m down, I’m down so far down So far down, So far down I’ve never felt so high, Down here on bended knee Lift me up in your time Lord, I want to know you and believe The only way is up now, I know it’s a long long climb And if I fall again, Will you catch me this time Oh Lord I’m trying to pray It’s been so long I don’t know what to say Only you can lift me up And take away this bitter cup I’m down, I’m down so far down So far down, So far down I’d lost the will to live I thought the end was nigh Then a star from the heaven’s fell And I knew you’d heard my cry Oh Lord I’m trying to pray It’s been so long I don’t know what to say Oh Lord I’m trying to pray It’s been so long I don’t know what to say Oh Lord I’m trying to pray It’s been so long I don’t know what to say Only you can lift me up And take away this bitter cup I’m down, I’m down so far down So far down, So far down

C’mon Darlin’ take my hand I think its time we put to bed All the lonesome guilty chains Best leave’em on the riverbank Leave’em on the riverbank Ain’t no crops to grow around here We’ve sown plenty, we’ve shed our tears Oh the clouds are back its getting rough Let’s sing Liza Jane and cuddle up Sing Liza Jane and cuddle up Down the river, the long long river, to Pontchartrain or Toulouse Got nothing planned, ‘except being ur man and writing sweet billets-doux Down the river, the Mississippi river, sipping on southern shine And holding ur had to a far better land, I’ll love ya til river runs dry I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry You can bask in the warm summer rain I’ll catch lightning bugs along the way There’s a whole lot more for us on downstream My jole blon you’ll always be My jole blon you’ll always be Down the river, the long long river, to Pontchartrain or Toulouse Got nothing planned, ‘except being ur man and writing sweet billets-doux Down the river, the Mississippi river, sipping on southern shine And holding ur had to a far better land, I’ll love ya til river runs dry I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry Oh the rivers wide, Oh the rivers deep Oh the rivers wide, Oh the rivers deep Down the river, the long long river, to Pontchartrain or Toulouse Got nothing planned, ‘except being ur man and writing sweet billets-doux Down the river, the Mississippi river, sipping on southern shine And holding ur had to a far better land, I’ll love ya til river runs dry I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry I’m gonna love ya til the river runs dry Down the river, the long long river, down the river we go Down the river, the long long river, down the river we go Down the river, the long long river

about

The crying steel guitar, twangy electric fills and hoedown fiddle comprise the Country Music sounds on this self-titled mini EP. JSH tackles darker yet universal themes and reverently delivers a southern vocal styling.
