about

Ramblin' Ash Tennant Creek, Australia

You might find Ramblin’ Ash pickin’ songs for folk at a free camp out west, or playing at a crowded bar in the city - wherever and whenever she turns up, there is always a story to be told and a tune to be sung. With a voice like birdsong and the rollicking, rough and tumble of a true traveller she will break your heart, then charm your socks off and leave you longing for a life on the road. ... more

Track Name: Fifteen White Flowers
I left the city to live in the mountains
With fifteen white flowers, they'll bloom for hours
I heat my billy, no one to drink with me
Just fifteen white flowers all bloomin below me

Fifteen white flowers, fifteen white flowers
They'll bloom for hours these fifteen white flowers

I hide from the people here in Green Valley
If everyone knew me, they would see through me
'Cause my time is comin so lay me down easy
These fifteen white flowers please bury them with me

Fifteen white flowers, fifteen white flowers
They'll bloom for hours these fifteen white flowers
Track Name: Slip Away Blues
There's a place by the fire where I'll sit and drink all night
And there's nothing you can do about it
And sometimes when I was drunk I told you what I really thunk
But I've no regrets, I'd even shout it

Slip away, slip away
I've got them slip away blues
I'll be gone til the mornin comes

So at night I'll slip away, find some other bed to lay
To keep our sorry hearts from beating
There'll be no note left when I go just so that you'll never know
The thing that scares me most is leavin

Slip away, slip away
I've got them slip away blues
I'll be gone til the mornin comes
Track Name: South
We were in love holdin stars up above
With all of the things we had done
We were two hearts promised never would we part
Maybe I remember it wrong
Maybe I remember it wrong

Our young bodies intertwined as we lay under the vines
Through the tangled branches nowhere to be seen
Watchin from above all the stars glowed from our love but
Maybe it was all just a dream
Maybe it was all just a dream

I've seen lows, I've been dealt too many hard blows
But I've been lost since that border you did cross back down south
I miss the taste of your mouth, miss the touch of your skin
Oh, the state I am in

Back in Tennessee I got a new man with me
Lay awake by the flicker of the screen
And though he treats me right I still think of you at night
Baby, I don't know what it means
Baby, I don't know what it means

I've seen lows, I've been dealt too many hard blows
But I've been lost since that border you did cross back down south
I miss the taste of your mouth, miss the touch of your skin
Oh, the state I am in
