“Pardon Me”
I’m hungry for a line
Haven’t slept in weeks
This new found consciousness
Is driving me to think
My eyes have never been this open
But I don’t like what I see

I’ll be driving through your town
On my way to Winnipeg
I should be there by sun down
I could use a place to stay
It be so nice to see you
If that’s ok

But pardon me
If I make for poor company tonight
The road can way heavy on a mind
I apologize if the conversations light
So pardon me

I’m so tired of walking
Down this crowded road
Full of loss souls and conmen
And broken heart winos
All watching the pretty ones
Light up the night

Do you still have that old
Simply Red 45
Put it on and I’ll pour us
A couple glasses of wine
We can hold back the years
If only for awhile

But pardon me
If I make for poor company tonight
The road can way heavy on a mind
I apologize if the conversations light
So pardon me
If you don’t know the man in front of you
You know I struggle to recognize him to
A hard luck modern day fool
Sol pardon me

Is it a blessing
To finally know the truth
Or is it a curse
To know the real you

So pardon me
If I make for poor company tonight
The road can weigh heavy on a mind
I apologize if the concessions light
So pardon me
If you don’t know the man in front of you
You know I struggle to recognize him to
A hard luck modern day fool
So pardon me
So pardon me
So pardon me

Video of the Day: The Afghan Whigs featuring James Hall – You Want Love (Pleasure Club Cover)

The Afghan Whigs’ new single is a cover song that they recorded in tribute to the band’s late guitarist Dave Rosser, who passed away last month following a brave battle with inoperable colon cancer.  Rosser’s incredible guitar work can be heard on 2014’s ‘Do To The Beast’ and the album released this year ‘In Spades.’  Rosser had also played with Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan in The Gutter Twins and in the post-Whigs project, The Twilight Singers, prior to the return of The Afghan Whigs in 2011.

“You Want Love” was first recorded by the now-defunct New Orleans band Pleasure Club, whose musical force James Hall contributes vocals to The Afghan Whigs’ new version of the song.  Thank you for the fine music Mr. Rosser.
