about

WIVES OF FARMERS

We are Wives of Farmers (WOF). A band of four or five; Matt Adkins,Jamie Boyd, Jeff Bradley, Kees Toft, and an important guest musician, Helen Weeks

WOF have existed for nearly ten years in multiple incarnations and with several name changes. Our only real desire right from often chaotic beginnings was to just play and play until something good surfaced – It’s still the only way we know.

Track Name: Gruff
In the battle for the world the microchip beats the mind
In the battle for the world the robot beats the hand, hands down
In the battle for the world the car beats the runner's feet by miles

This is not my war I never asked for any of this
This is not my war all bound up in the core
This is not my war modems on the mountains and cables on the shore
This is not my war

In the battle for the world space beats the earth, for what it's worth
In the battle for the world the satellite beats the eye in a blink
In the battle for the world there may be a pearl

This is not my war I never asked for any of this
This is not my war all bound up in the core
This is not my war modems on the mountains and cables on the shore
This is not my war
Track Name: Modern Song
Leave nothing, for taking
Give nothing, to the raven

Where's my gun? Little one
Steady on your feet, with your claws and your teeth

Your out of time, years gone by
Swollen knuckle, your hands are raw

If you go now, we don't stand a chance.
Track Name: Breathe It All In
Breathe it all in, It's all for you
I want to be the same friend, you do what you want to.

I'm staying here, a turn for the worst
Copper blood, the sweet past

Disconnect yourself, remember the cave
Better afraid, we should have stayed

I thought that there would be more, with somebody's hand to hold
I will follow you down, you are alone

Show me your weakness, pulling away
Run free, return to the sea

Survive on sadness, hard and bright
A few rabbits running out of time

I thought their would be more, with somebody's hand to hold
I will follow you down, you are alone

Stepping out tonight, we will be a sight
I tried to run, falling before it's begun
Track Name: Missed The Boat
Walking in the rain soaked through to the bones
Walking in the rain soaked through to the bones
I missed the boat again, you could have to
For one little game, surrender to you

On the stage love like a bow and arrow
The further you pull it, the further it goes
I missed the boat again, you could have to
For one litlle game, surrender to you
Like the stars, start a new
Track Name: Ashtray Parkway
Takes a silent place to hear all those ghosts
In a world too far gone to pause or press stop

And the candles we carry will easily blow out
And your eyes are like flames dancing about

And the waves fall over and hold out their hands
And I trust in a stranger or someone's best friend

You told me a story, turned out to be true
That the lakes in this forest are bluer than blue

Eugine is a place and a name too, but a place has a name if it's all the same to you

You told me a story, turned out to be true
That the lakes in this forest are bluer than blue

And the waves fall over and hold out their hands
And I trust in a stranger or someone's best friend

Takes a silent place to hear all those ghosts
In a world too far gone to pause or press stop
Track Name: Perfect Stranger
If you call, I will be your Perfect Stranger
Hanging on every word, like a souvenir
We can get back there together
I won't leave with no one else.

There's no one here, turned around, taken down
There's no connection,everything hurts
So call it even, pound to pound, shut your mouth
This is our day, don't let the truth get in the way

You have to go, your well worn and you left home
Sit and wait in a spiders web, your dressed up in the same shade
The drive I need, I'm still your man, it will come, from my hand
Your safer where you are, I will be your perfect stranger
Track Name: Memories Of The Flamingo
Memories of the Flamingo 1960s, Pink Floyd, Tom Jones, Thin Lizzy
Jan met John it was the place be, 200 seats, 1,300 capacity

John borrowed his dad's car and drove Jan home
And all the big names played except the Beatles and The Stones
The rest as the say it's history, they celebrate their 47th wedding annivesary

Memories of the Flamingo where Fred was a wrestler, he worked as a local resident bouncer
He was ex-pro boxer, punch ups in Hell's Corner

Hard men drinking, Mike Wills, Jack O' Flaherty
Flamingo Ballroom held so many memories
150 by 50 feet wide, Safeway knocked it down, Morrisons on the site

Memories of the Falmingo Nashville Teens, The Misfits, The Pretty Things
That's where they fell in love, you cant take it away, dancing on a Saturday
Track Name: Bankrobber
Didn't want to hurt no one, why did you carry a gun?
Called the ambulance, he was already gone, police cars come

Took his daughter into care, her father was a bankrobber
What have I become, didn't want to hurt no one

Given a day, a time and a place
It was the hunger of man, and you will never do it again
Track Name: 2004
People Ten Billion or more
Armies Ten Thousand and One

Love me
2004
Hate me
2007

It's a long way yeah back to the past
But a short drive yeah back to your house

Love me
2004
Hate me
2007

It's a long way yeah back to the past
But a short drive yeah back to your house
Track Name: Orion
Don't give anyone a second chance
Don't want to miss out on anything
You like it here, you don't want to go
He knew the names of all the stars and she misses him so much
