Tim Buckley

Timothy Charles Buckley III (February 14, 1947 – June 29, 1975) was an American singer and musician. His music and style changed considerably through the years; his first album (1966) was mostly folk oriented, but over time his music incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul, avant-garde and an evolving "voice as instrument," sound. He died aged 28, leaving behind wife Judy and son Taylor, and son Jeff Buckley from his marriage to Mary Guibert. more »

They told me all the hymns were born
Out of the saxophone,
And I went down to test them all
Beneath the Tijuana moon,
I saw violence in the moon
Two broken lovers strong and strewn,
I drank myself into a dream:

Tijuana moon,
My daddy Tijuana moon,
Oh my darlin',
Tijuana moon Lord my daddy
Tijuana moon

You can keep the Texas blues, 
Tequila and the burning stone,
But my amigo
Nothin's good against the Tijuana moon

Talk about daddy Tijuana moon
Talk about lovin' Tijuana moon
Talk about daddy Tijuana moon
