about

III BONES Gainesville, Florida

Lo-Fi Soul from the Florida swamps, described as immeasurable feeling rather than measurable sound.

"Florida based Lo-Fi Blues Rockers, III BONES is steadily strengthening the spirits of now the East Coast of the United States, and soon to be the rest of the world with their medicinal dose of driving low-ego grit that has the spirit and soul that would make James Brown a fan."

Track Name: Abandon'd Road
Out here, we all live
Out here, we all live
Out here, we all go on nothin'
Out here that ain't much

On the way, we all go
On the way, we all go
On the way I've found anew kind of life
Out here that ain't much

I've found an abandoned road
I've followed an abandoned road
Track Name: Floating Through the Porous Lines
Floating thru the porous lines, waves bounce off thru fluid tides
oh expressing sun show
We exchange a change of pace, up the walls and in your face
no expression to show

after the headrush sets in I grin, the tide of my mind swells out and back in again
after the headrush sets in I grin, the plane we're floating on is only just pretend

Joyus blue and scarlet red, run thru my head so carelessly
the sounds I feel, the colors I feel
do you believe what I can see
do you believe what I can see

after the headrush sets in I grin, the tide of my mind swells out and back in again
after the headrush sets in I grin, the plane we're floating on is only just pretend
Track Name: Crazy In Love
Just because I call you love
Didn't mean to make you fall
I didn't know you felt the same way
Things happen so crazy
Crazy In Love

Just because I held your hand
Didn't think you'd understand
That way you make me
Stir and shake crazy
Crazy In Love

Oh oh Darling,
when you called me up on the phone and told me everything's gunna be okay, I just can't explain how I felt that day, I jumped and shout and go crazy crazy crazy over you

Just because I call you love
Doesn't mean I have it all
But when you're calling me baby
Driving me crazy
Crazy In Love
Track Name: Troublin' Water
Winter wind blow, a chill course through my veins
Try to take the whole control and you'll drop the reins

Close the windows, I can feel a cold coming in
The cat will get out on the roof again

A tellers tall tale, which do you believe?
What's a life been lived by you if it's all deceived?

Slip down and cool your jets now,
Somethin' been troublin' water
Sink down and hide your face now,
Somethin' been troublin' water

Oh tell me man, how did you turn out this way
I wish I could show you what your soul looks like today
Oh brother brother, won't you change up your ways
don't let things get to you, smile and create in some way
don't let things get to you, smile and create in some way

Slip down and cool your jets now,
Somethin' been troublin' water
Sink down and hide your face now,
Somethin' been troublin' water

Come down my people,
The water is cool crisp and clean
Let it cleanse your soul, let it wash your feet
All of your friends are here, with open arms we greet
So come to the water child and be renewed in enlightenment
The water is your saviour, your friend with no deceit
Bask in its prolonged purity and the bliss of supreme relief
I say to you my people cleanse and rejuvenate
The ones who tell you don't will only know when its far too late
And when your soul is finally free and the water has done its deed
Your mind can be like a child's', playful, innocent tranquility
Amen I say to you and your god cannot contest
So come down into the water child, your soul is free to do the rest

Been troublin' water
Somethin' been troublin' water (bring me down)
Been troublin' water
Somethin' been troublin' water (bring me down)
Track Name: House of the Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
Sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase in the trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's all drunk

Oh, mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the house of the rising sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know I'm one
Track Name: Lioness
Sharp Lips soft tongue I do as I please
Be quick your attack swift, eyes of ice, come run away with me
I'm a bad woman a mad woman with a snap from my hip
Come a love gun aimed straight for the kill

Honey, I have been mistaken, your room is on the left
so head back to your quarters and go prey by yourself

I am the Lioness can you feel my presence breathe
Come on man cage me up and toss away the key
I am all dangerous can you feel my disease
snap of the wrist, my shots never miss, I do as I please

Mama with a wolf's fang sugar
Mama with a wolf's fang ooh yea yea
Mama with a wolf's fang sugar
Track Name: One More Cup of Coffee
Your breath is sweet and weak
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude no love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.

Your daddy he's an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade
He'll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom
So no stranger shall intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out
For another plate of food.

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.

Your sister sees the future
Like your mother and yourself
You don't know how to read or write
There's no books upon your shelf
And your pleasure knows no limits
Your voice is like a meadowlark
But your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark.

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.
Track Name: Jolene
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
Ivory skin, and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like the breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
And their nothing I can do to keep from crying
When he calls your name, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

Now, I could easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you do not know what he means to me Jolene

You could have your choice of mean
But I could never love again
He's the only one for me Jolene

I had to have this talk with you
Because my happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can
Track Name: Woman In The Sky
Oh woman in the sky
Can you tell me what to do with my life
Oh woman in the sky

She looks out her window
At all the traffic going by
She looks out her window
At all the faces going by

Oh woman in the sky
Can you tell me what to do with my life
Oh woman in the sky

He walks down the street alone
With the sun in his eyes
He walks down the street alone
Lets out a sigh

Oh woman in the sky
Oh mother in the sky

The trees grow far and wide
The trees frow side by side
They wonder why
They wonder why

Oh woman in the sky
Oh mother in the sky
