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 »

I can sense it all around me 
There's somethin' in this room 
It ain't magic nor no witchcraft 
No bitch on no broom 
Look see his bones are gone 
He done left the grave 
The grip of death it could not hold him down no 
It's for him that I rave 
My knees was made for kneelin' 
An that's just what they'll do 
One of these days little girl 
I'll go down an pray for you 
Look see his bones are gone 
He's done all my dyin' 
Sometimes hope's so strong in me girl 
I commence to cryin' 
O my brothers 
These are the great dust bowl days 
Just take a gander round ya 
Everything in a wicked haze 
"The wind blows like the devil when it blows 
An a boy grows up an like the wind he goes"
