about

A folkgrass version of a previously released song ( Storyhill - Shade of the Trees) performed live with a band on Chris's episode of the Emmy award-winning music series "11th and Grant with Eric Funk", produced by MontanaPBS and originally aired in 2017.

lyrics

living it up downtown, your tongue a little loose
tales of love and conquest you can't lose
the guy behind the counter shakes his head at you
he's seen a lot of lucky faces go from red to blue

Jim rolls in with the good news like he's so good at doing
making wine out of water and whistling a tune
you were too filled up to hear the song
your cup was running over, you should've been running home

a town talks, will you listen
are you wise enough to know where to put your ears?
love walks
if your not watching you'll end up alone with all your talk and tears

you framed your dreams together over all these years
smiling pictures in the hallway up above the stairs
the shadows in the corner make it painfully clear
she don't need your understanding she just wants you here

a town talks, will you listen
are you wise enough to know where to put your ears?
love walks
if your not watching you'll end up alone with all your talk and tears

am I getting through?
do you need more information?
what’s it say about you, if I have to ask the question?

living it up down town your tongue a little loose
for all I hear you saying what's it say about you
a town talks
a town talks
a town talks
a town talks
