about

As a child they were all around but as developers moved in they faded away..the last ones behind my grandfather's house now being turned into an Eco Museum for Trees!

Musically I was listening to the Louvin Brothers and although I didn't hear Gillian Welch and David Rawlings until years later (their first disc was released (Revival) in April 1996) there might have been something in the air :-) I also found my first copy of No Depression magazine ( the Whiskeytown cover see below) in 1997 when I back in Oxfordshire....with my barns..

lyrics

BLACK TIN BARNS

There's an old dirt track and a muddy stream

There's a wide open field that's surrounded by trees

There's an old tin barn that's falling down

That's where I rolled in my sweet baby's arms



Oh country tracks won't you take me back

To the farms and the black tin barns



Now all I can do is sit and stare

Across these fields at trees so bare

All around there's only sticks and stones

Cos' nothing been planted so nothing grows



When I was young how I used to dream

Of you girl in these fields of wheat

But now the wind's torn everything up

All that I am left is this handful of dust
