Bottle Angel

A man bases his life on drinking – doesn’t need a wife or friends, because he thinks he’s saved by the bottle. Then he meets a woman who turns his life around, and he realizes he was saved by his Bottle Angel.


Bottle Angel
(Gibson/Bates/Kelley 2017)
Verse 1
Wives come and go, they do,
friends rarely ever stay true,
when you’re feel’n downright blue,
downright blue,
you can always do what I do . . .
do what I do . . .

Chorus
I live my life full throttle,
never found a need to dawdle,
don’t have to be Aristotle
to know I’m saved, I’m saved, by the bottle.
Saved by the bottle.

Short Instrumental

Verse 2
I hate my work, have no clout,
my life’s a pain, so damn true.
When you’re feeling down & out,
feeling down & out,
you can always do what I do . . .
do what I do . . .

Chorus
I live my life full throttle,
never found a need to dawdle,
don’t have to be Aristotle
to know I’m saved, I’m saved, by the bottle.
Saved by the bottle.

Instrumental

Bridge
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
Then she came into my life . . .
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
An angel showed me how
to handle strife . . .
an angel saved me from myself,
an angel saved me from myself.

Chorus
I live my life full throttle,
never found a need to dawdle,
don’t have to be Aristotle
to know she saved me, saved me, from the bottle.
She saved me from the bottle,
She saved me from the bottle.
She saved me from the bottle.

Doc Holliday Lyrics and Authors Notes

The more reckless I face death,
the more lucky I become;
there is something wrong-headed
in this kind of luck – it’s just dumb –
as if the only time you’ll die
is when death’s not playing with you,
and your luck runs dry . . .
it runs completely dry.

Diagnosed with tuberculosis,
and given just six short months to live;
I heard the news, then needed to throw this
damn fate in the creek – more than I can give.

Went to Arizona where air is a dry thing,
a dentist gunslinger carrying a lie,
the untruth being I wanted to lose at anything
as long as bed was not a place to die.

The more reckless I face death,
the more lucky I become;
there is something wrong-headed
in this kind of luck – it’s just dumb –
as if the only time you’ll die
is when death’s not playing with you,
and your luck runs dry . . .
it runs completely dry.

The best thing about playing poker is the chance
to pick a fight, a chance to accuse
someone of cheating, and take the stance
that guns are the only proper way to choose.

Who knew I’d be so damn good at the draw?
Every fight I’d hope would be my last,
a quick death, but like a constant gnaw,
I would win, and the opportunity passed.

Thirty-odd gunfights, who ever figured
Lord, I’d win them all? I’d look at the dust,
wanting to see myself disfigured,
but here I stood, here I stood instead.

Life is a lust your body wants to play out,
even while your mind it shouts out
to pull the gun more slowly,
as if a sinner can now be holy.

Fourteen years after my move
that old TB finally got me;
and dying in bed should only prove
there’s just no damn symmetry
in trying to avoid what Fate planned,
for my death was certainly classic;
I switched course in my final stand.

I got baptized in that hard, dying bed,
for my death was certainly classic;
I went out a Catholic.

The more reckless I face death,
the more lucky I become;
there is something wrong-headed
in this kind of luck – it’s just dumb –
as if the only time you’ll die
is when death’s not playing with you,
and your luck runs dry . . .
it runs completely dry.

Artist’s note:
John Henry Holliday (1851-1887), known throughout the West as Doc Holliday ,was born in Georgia and educated as a dentist in Pennsylvania. Diagnosed with tuberculosis in 1873 and given only a half-year to live, he moved west, hoping to extend his life a few months in the dry climate. Already condemned to a slow, painful death, Holliday knew no fear in dangerous situations, and his fame grew; he teamed up with the Earp brothers during the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and many historians place the amount of men he killed in the 30s. The only fellow Georgian Holliday continued to contact after he went west was his cousin, Mattie Holliday. Shortly after Doc contracted tuberculosis and left Georgia, Mattie too left their childhood world to become a Sister of Charity, entering an Atlanta convent. No correspondence between the two has survived, but it’s safe to say she had a profound impact on Doc, in that even though he had been raised a Presbyterian, it was revealed after his death at Glenwood Springs, Colorado, that he had recently been baptized in the Catholic faith.

Swamp Witch Remaster Lyrics

Blues

We’ve all heard the story of selling your soul to the devil. But what about selling your soul to the Swamp Witch. This is a  story written by Author Ward Kelley (of Divine Murder) for his children then later turned into a rock song which is played by Ellusion of Wardco Studios.  Listen to the lyrics to follow Bar Keep Johnnie and Jungle Jane go from poor to rich! They go down, way on down to the bayou to see the Swamp Witch. Johnnie’s now a big man, Janie’s now a looker, Look at them, oh damn!

Swamp Witch Lyrics

Bar Keep Johnnie
And Jungle Jane

He was scrawny.
She a little plain,

But they loved each other.
But they loved each other.

Take it,
Take it,
To the next level.

Easy to go from poor to rich,
Maybe bargain with the Devil,

And go down, go down,
Go way on down
To see the Swamp Witch.

Johnnie got a gun,
Janie got a wig,

This could be fun,
A new kind of gig.

And they loved each other.
And they loved each other.

Take it,
Take it,
To the next level.

Easy to go from poor to rich,
Maybe bargain with the Devil,

And go down, go down,
Go way on down
To see the Swamp Witch.

Down on the bayou,
Just go, go, go,

She has a strange fruit – oh!
Don’t go slow, slow, slow.

Swamp Witch,
Swamp Witch,
Notch up your courage
A hitch,

And listen to
The Swamp Witch!

Johnnie’s now a big man
Janie’s now a looker,

Look at them, oh damn!
Fruit is quicker than liquor!

And they loved each other.
And they loved each other.

Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie that fruit – oh!
Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie that fruit – oh!
Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie that fruit – oh!
Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie that fruit – oh!

Current Collaborative Spotify Playlist

Thoughts

For the next few months, these playlists will be collaborative Spotify playlists that you can add track(s) to. Go to the playlist, follow the playlist and add your track.

When a playlist has enough followers I will edit the playlist, and pick the songs are the best fit for that playlist. I will then send the playlist to Wardco Studios, where the playlist will be listened to and feedback on selected tracks will be provided via blog post. For those of you who don’t already know, I’m the office manager at Wardco Studios, and have access to the professionals there.

Note: When I review a playlist to pick the best songs, these are a couple of the of the things I look for. If someone dumps their whole album or all their tracks on the playlist, I listen to only one of these songs and dump the rest. I do not consider this person to be serious because that person did not take the time to select only the track(s) that are appropriate for that playlist. I have no problem when two or three tracks are added by the same person when it is apparent that each of the songs is appropriate for that playlist. This indicates to me that the person is serious and has taken the time to submit only their best music for a given playlist. The second thing I do is delete any song that not in line with the playlist theme. If the playlist is for folk music, then don’t submit a rap song.

Hint: If you tweet a playlist, add @KimbersPlaylist so I know you have shared it.

Please add your music tracks to any of the playlists shown or your own collaborative playlist in the comment section. Get updates on Twitter and/or our Newsletter.
