about

New Carolina. Let's party like we used to, because as much as politics, corruption, and structural inequality bring ya down, there's nothing like losing a lover to really ruin your day. Inspiration from “Pretty Betty Martin,” southern mountains of the USA, prior to 1940.

lyrics

Carolina, Carolina won’t you come back and see what I done?
Won’t you come back and forgive what I done?
Carolina, Carolina won't you came back and forgive what I done?

As the crow flies, as the crow flies headed south, towards the sun
You fly like the crow flies, won’t you come back and forgive what I done?

Cant You say You were lonely?
Can’t you say something broke down in you?
Not that you needed it all to be new
Not that you needed it all to be new
Not that you needed it all to be new


Talk softly, talk softly
Lay your head down on the table
And talk to me slow
Let your hair fall down all around me
One more time before I go

Cant You say You were lonely?
Can’t you say something broke down in you?
Not that you needed it all to be new
Not that you needed it all to be new
Not that you needed it all to be new

When the snow flies, when the snow flies in the winter, I’ll be gone
Carolina, Carolina won’t you come back and forgive what I done?

Can’t You say You were lonely?
Can’t you say something broke down in you?
Not that you needed it all to be new
Not that you needed it all to be new
Not that you needed it all to be new

about

The Gertrudes Kingston, Ontario

The Gertrudes sound like an ol’ time saloon party in deep space … experimental noise beds with down home folk passengers, frolicking through original material, played by a veritable orchestra of instruments.
