lyrics

The land was forgotten like a whisper in the wind
Swallowed by ivy, by the creepers and weeds
Where headstones have crumbled under blankets of moss
Names forsakes and lost
They came here as farmers, masons and maids
Worked through the seasons in the sweat and the rain
But the fruits of their labor were never their own
All for another man's home

Over their bones, over their bones
Long passed over like a river stone
Over their bones, willows weep, a lonesome moon
Is left to grieve

I walk in the forest, brush the webs form my face
And fall through the pages of my history, my name
I can tell you the face on the dollars and dimes
But I can't trace my family line

Over their bones, over their bones
Long passed over like a river stone
Over their bones, willows weep, a lonesome moon
Is left to grieve

With greatest care one man tended the grounds
Knew the map and he passed it down
What would he think, what would he say
Since the days a dollar bought a grave

Over their bones, over their bones
Long passed over like a river stone
Over their bones, willows weep, a lonesome moon
Is left to grieve

about

Ali Sperry Nashville, Tennessee

Recorded at home in her rented pink villa in East Nashville, Ali Sperry’s 2017 release “Crooked Feelings”, “takes a step away from the singer/songwriter direction” of her previous releases. The arrangements are fuller (Produced by Jon Estes and Jamie Dick), the songs are more assured, and as an album comprised largely of co-writes, Ali’s voice is indelible throughout. ... more
