16 Horsepower

16 Horsepower was an American alternative country music group based in Denver, Colorado. Their music often invoked religious imagery dealing with conflict, redemption, punishment, and guilt through David Eugene Edwards's lyrics and the heavy use of traditional bluegrass, gospel, and Appalachian instrumentation cross-bred with rock. For the bulk of its career, the band consisted of Edwards, Jean-Yves Tola, and Pascal Humbert, the latter two formerly of the French band Passion Fodder. After releasing four studio albums and touring extensively, the group broke up in 2005, citing "mostly political and spiritual" differences. The members remain active in the groups Woven Hand and Lilium. more »

Come to my house an we'll pick bones 
There hands outside ready with stones 

Come to my yard 
I got whiskey an chairs
We'll sit on the porch 
As the good men stare 
You ain't never spoke true 
I shake an angry fist at you 

You are not needed here 
To help me feel low down 
I'm doin' it fine all on my own 
I her you cryin' from cradle to coffin 
An for you there'll be no stoppin' 
I see you lyin' in a pine box with bitter words 
That's how the boy talks
