Lyrics:
These days her eyes just don't seem to shine like before
She passes me everyday on the steps outside her door
I'm non-existent to her
It's like she's in another world
There she goes, her burden is covered up with diamonds and pearls

I hear her cries through the walls at night
& it seems like it must be fate
That she's the queen of Brokedown Alleyway
& I'm just a peasant at her gates
I'm just a peasant at her gates

I don't know just what went wrong in her mind
She used to be cold & distant but now she's just plain unkind
I'm non-existent to her
It's like she's in another world
There she goes, baby that burdens covered up with diamonds and pearls

I hear her cries through the walls at night
& it seems like it must be fate
That she's the queen of Brokedown Alleyway
& I'm just a peasant at her gates
I'm just a peasant at her gates

Vocals sound real clear on this one. Sounds like an early Dylan deep cut! But with better vocals. Just needs a harmonica solo... Maybe your best lyrics of all time!

I still got that book for you.

Effing harmonica solo man! Do ittttttttt!

Shoham: This is actually another loss tune from the vault. Written circa 2010, recorded now. Thanks for the lyrical praise! I actually don't have a harmonica in G, but got a sweetwater giftcard for bday so.... Until then, guess I could play cross harp and see what it sounds like. I will fiddle around with my special 20s I have and see what sounds best.

Gabrielle: No idea. I think I was drunk as a pile of fuck when I wrote this one...hence the simple chords. Prob someone I made up. Like I said above, the tune is quite oooooold
