lyrics

She's sometimes careless with me
Only when she's off at sea
She has me pine away for peaceful dreams
She's sometimes careless with me

It takes a very naughty girl
To do a thing like that
And she will never never learn
She's a very naughty girl

That thing you want to be
I can see it
The one you want to be
I can help you be it
The thing you want to be
I can see it
Oh, Lord

You can tell her thoughts aren't pure
Her eyes convey a certain lure
She can make you feel unsure of her
You can tell her thoughts aren't pure

Take me down
Help me drown
Take me down
Oh, Lord

She's got those sympathetic eyes
At time you'll find them full of lies
She's the worst one at goodbyes
With those manipulative eyes

Take me down
Help me Drown
Take me down
Oh, Lord

Take me down to the river
Help me wash away this sinner
Take me down
Help me drown
Take me down
Oh, Lord

Here I go...

Down to the river
Down to the water
Cleanse me, this sinner
Oh, help me mother

Take me down
Take me down
Take me down
Take me down to the river

about

Jen Cork & The Good Hope Ithaca, New York

Folk-jazz outfit, The Good Hope, blends the smokily textured vocals of singer-songwriter Jen Cork, with the instrumental stylings of Harry Aceto (upright bass), Brian Earle (clarinet), and Michael Wellen (drums). These elements come together to create a warm sound that takes the listener on a sometimes danceable and sometimes pensive, but always rich exploration of death, learning, and love. ... more
