in her darkest hour she kneeled down to pray she said lord have mercy on me i've done things that i do regret i kneel before you and i repent and like a caged bird with clipped wings she knelt to the ground and let out a scream she prayed for forgiveness and she prayed for faith tears streaming down her bright red face and she screamed freedom freedom lord have mercy on me freedom freedom lord have mercy on me now in her darkest hour she kneeled down to pray she said lord have mercy on me i've done things that i do regret i kneel before you and i repent and like a caged bird with clipped wings she knelt to the ground and let out a scream she prayed for forgiveness and she prayed for faith tears streaming down her bright red face and she screamed freedom freedom lord have mercy on me freedom freedom lord have mercy on me

been feeling mighty down sun setting on the day my mind grows weary feel the burning weight i once was happy i felt no pain i had a roof to shelter me from the rain well my coat is torn seems come undone my cup is empty can you spare some love i'm down and out not a penny in change i should leave this place ain't no use in staying my soul is weary and my heart worn ain't slept in days no house and no home well my coat is torn seems come undone my cup is empty can you spare some love so sit down beside me spare a second of your time i don't need a penny i don't need a dime and i'll tell you my story not a word of a lie it's a tale of sadness and a wasted life well my coat is torn seems come undone my cup is empty can you spare some love

" "there ain't no reason to be falling in love" well wait a minute some day girl you will see pretty boy gonna come around and knock you off your feet let the fools run in let the blind lead the blind cause i just can't get him out of my mind i just can't get him out of my mind i just can't get him out of my mind got to have him in my life i wanna hold him i wanna kiss him i wanna tell him that i got-to got-to got-to got-to have him in my life oh you know i got to have him in my life oh i got to have him in my life oh i got to have him in my life you know i got to make him mine

somewhere off bourbon some seek sex some seek love but when you turn the corner something wicked this way comes only brave dare to enter the alley's damp and dark fishbones in the garbage and it smells like broken hearts the eastern winds are blowing and i can hear the blind-man grinning got an evil spell for you and i'm going down to new orleans snake snails and puppy dog tails be hanging on the wall black cat in the walk way and the doorman's ten foot tall these streets have seen things that people wouldn't believe enough to drive a sane man crazy the haunting of a babies dreams the eastern winds are blowing and i can hear the blind-man grinning got an evil spell for you and i'm going down to new orleans they say be careful what you wish for cause dreams often come true but not all the bad in the whole wide world baby could compare to the evil that you do so i'm going down i'm going down down down to new orleans new orleans baby i'm going down down down

about

At age 26, Cassie Taylor is already a veteran musician. She's spent a decade playing bass and singing on stage and in the studio with her father, modern-day blues innovator Otis Taylor. Now she stakes her own claim as an artist of intelligence, power and soul, drawing on a wide swath of influences – spanning centuries, continents and cultures – to create her own indelible and utterly modern sound.

With influences ranging from a New Orleans second line to West African psychedelic rock, the album's 12 original songs – all written and arranged by Taylor – are the work of a truly 21st century musical omnivore. From the record's lead track, "Ol' Mama Dean (Part 1)," which opens with drums and theremin, to the wistful piano closer "Again," Taylor proves to be a gifted, independent-minded songwriter with a flair for the unexpected and a voice that will haunt your dreams.
