  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A concise collection of poignant short stories in song form, narratives brought perfectly to life through a creative partnership with Simon Edwards (Fairground Attraction, Billy Bragg, David Gray). The album contains ten four-minute tales from the school of Anne Tyler and Raymond Carver, delivered with a grit and warmth that puts Jones firmly in the Bonnie Raitt and Joan Osborne class of tough but soulful exponents of North American roots music.

lyrics

Train

It happened on a normal day, out of the blue just like they say
It snuck up on me like a train
Love may jump you like a thief, but when it goes it tends to creep
I felt the tremors miles beneath my feet

And I froze there listening

I had my hands down in the dirt, you had my heart tucked in your shirt
I fell in love with all the earth
Full with the promise of the world, a heavy wit, a willow-girl
You fell for nothing and the darkness curled

And I froze there listening, a weight in my heart

But by the time that you hear it you won't go near it
And the wound in your spirit tells you to fear it
And it moves down a track laid many decades ago
When it gets here I'll be gone

I tried to sit with you and read, you threw your shadow over me
So I went out to pull the weeds
The sun was shining like a priest, through the window I could see
You got up to dust me off your sleeve

Stood on the bluff above the flats
The heat was trembling on the tracks
Then you thundered past
