Josh Ritter

I’d like to park myself on a wee bit of land like this and watch the sun come up each morning to the east…and watch the sun go down each evening to the west…maybe watch a bird or two…smell the sage….beautiful.
 
Josh’s new music is much like that written by many songwriters recently…political statements….I think that’s coming out in my art work at the moment as well.  It’s impossible to ‘feel nothing’ when we are all witnesses.

Josh Ritter Girl In The War Lyrics

Peter said to Paul you know all those words we wrote
Are just the rules of the game and the rules are the first to go
But now talking to God is Laurel begging Hardy for a gun

I got a girl in the war man I wonder what it is we done

Paul said to Peter you got to rock yourself a little harder

Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire
But I got a girl in the war Paul the only thing I know to do

Is turn up the music and pray that she makes it through

Because the keys to the Kingdom got lost inside the Kingdom

And the angels fly around in there but we can¹t see them
I got a girl in the war Paul I know that they can here me yell
If they can¹t find a way to help her they can go to Hell

If they can¹t find a way to help her they can go to Hell

Paul said to Peter you got to rock yourself a little harder

Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire
But I got a girl in the war Paul her eyes are like champagne
They sparkle bubble over and in the morning all you got is rain
They sparkle bubble over and in the morning all you got is rain
They sparkle bubble over and in the morning all you got is rain
