Starlings, TN Austin, Texas

“This unique approach to roots music requires a certain disregard for convention, so it’s not surprising to discover that the members of Starlings, TN used to be in a punk rock band.” - Meredith Ochs, All Things Considered (NPR)

Track Name: The Cumberland
The Cumberland (in a van down by the river)
Lyrics Music/Steven Stubblefield

Well, I could’ve been strong enough and I could never know.
You wanted me to stay, but you wanted me to go.
So, I live in a van down by the river where lonely heart night after night
drowns in the Cumberland.

I couldn’t if you ask me tell you how we got this way.
I did everything, everyday so you would want me to stay.
Now, I live in a van down by the river where lonely heart night after night
drowns in the Cumberland.

Well, I couldn’t say you were wrong and I couldn’t say I was right.
I know I could never forget you you’re here with me every night.
But, I live in a van down by the river where lonely heart night after night.
Well, I live in a van down by the river where lonely heart night after night
drowns in the Cumberland.
Track Name: Forbidden Fruit Makes a Sticky Jam
Forbidden Fruit Makes a Sticky Jam
Music Lyrics/Steven Stubblefield

Well, now forbidden fruit makes a sticky jam.
Oh, my lord look at the shape I’m in.
I lost my woman so now I roam,
night after night no place to call home.
Lord, I miss her I am a man
and if I could kiss her once again.
But, if you take a good look at the shape I’m in.
You’ll see forbidden fruit makes a sticky jam.

Well now, the whiskey bottle ain’t a friend to me.
It’ll treat me kind ‘til he sets the Devil free.
Lord, I’m lonsome gonna head into town.
To find some sweet momma wants to lay me down.
Her kisses sweet like sugar cured ham.
All my women’s love me and I love them.
But, if you take a good look at the shape I’m in
You’ll see forbidden fruit makes a sticky jam.
You’ll see forbidden fruit makes a sticky jam.
