Helping Hand & Worker Bee

Hope y’all are safe, healthy, and well.

Here’s two new home recordings.

Track One: Helping Hand

Written, Recorded, & Performed by A.S. Coomer ©2020
When that light breaks through
Let it in
Whatever gets you through
Let it in

But when you cannot see
Past that midnight sea, oh Lord
Well take your comfort where you can
And don’t forget to lend a helping hand

There’s light on the dark side too
Just look at that pale sickle moon
There’s light on the dark side too
Let it in

Brake lights on finger bone trees
Your laugh rattling leaves in the breeze
And just for this moment a reprieve
From when you cannot see
Past that midnight sea, oh Lord
Well take your comfort where you can
And don’t forget to lend a helping hand

Track Two: Worker Bee

Written, Recorded, & Performed by A.S. Coomer ©2020
I watch the crack in the pane of the window fill with snow
I tape some plastic on it but I don’t think it’ll hold
I hear a mournful whistle on that wicked winter wind that blows

Spit on the shit, man, shine the bricks
I’m working and working just to make another man rich
I’m a drone, baby, a worker bee
Well that’s just the kind of life for the likes of you & me

I pick my check on Friday then that weekend comes
Cindy’s got the kids, Lord knows, man, I got that rum
I’ll be a-screaming and a-singing like I did when I’s young
Won’t have a dime for the time I wasted ‘fore Monday comes

The socks on my feet are made of mostly holes
I feel every rock in the street & that winter’s cold
Ain’t got no money to spend, no needle of my own to hold
I hope that weather warms up before my shoes decide to go

With all this social distancing I’ve decided to experiment with a little home recording. I even talked my wife into singing on Helping Hand. Let me know what y’all think. Drop a comment or shoot me a message. Hell, share the damn thing if the spirit moves you.

Be kind to each other, y’all. Lend a helping hand.

All the best,

-A.S. Coomer
