lyrics

Just About Had It – Doug Allen

There’s a river in my driveway, Rio Nuevo is it’s name
There’s a lake in my back yard, that wasn’t there yesterday
When the dawn came slow and eerie, and the heavens opened wide
And it poured down wolves and tigers, two inches more last night

For the farmers it’s a struggle, peat giving way beneath the wheels
Farm machinery sittin idle, like the water standin round in the fields
I knew a cowboy in Montana, said cuss the rain kill the corn
But if he spent one winter here, he’d be cussin up a storm

Now rainwater follows me down Railroad Avenue
And I’m mumbling from the strain
Forty-five degrees and a leak in my shoe
And I’ve just about had it with this goddamn rain

It’s been a long and stormy winter, the clouds rolling in like waves
First a downpour then a drizzle, and the next seven days looks the same
Now I’ve been thinking bout Durango, they say the winters there are fine
I’d come back here for the summer, when the sun shines once in a while.

Now rainwater follows me down Railroad Avenue
And I’m mumbling from the strain
Forty-five degrees and a leak in my shoe
And I’ve just about had it,
Just about had it,
Just about had it with this goddamn rain

Doug Allen Bellingham, Washington

Big Timber is my second recording, reflecting what life has been like for me in the northwest corner of Washington state. It was long in coming but I'm proud of it and The Union Wage. Please listen to some of the tracks - I hope you like it.
