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 »

To hell with boys creepin' up slowly 
Swingin' them shovels 'round 
Diggin' up words of pleasure 
From evil hollow ground 
Oh an' here's one now girl 
The devil is in his eye 
You'd better start stirring up soil boy 
Or hear e'are you'll lye 
Whispered to you in the dark 
And I think you heard me say 
Let's say goodbye like we said hello 
In a friendly kind of way 
Ye charlie's neat an' charlie's keen but 
David he's a dandy 
David he's a nice young man 
He feeds the girls on candy 
Whispered to you in the dark 
And all that sordid gain 
Let's say goodbye like we said hello 
In a friendly kinda way 
Now what I done's my damage 
An' what you do is your'n 
Y'all got nothin' on me 
But I'll take that there 
Crown of scorn
