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 »

Little Johanna girl of my prairie
Help me fill this house with living words
Further up and further in
Let them fly from our lips
Just like birds

All that dark woods from Pakistan
The glory the glory lodged inside
Strive to enter the narrow gate
To the fountain flowin' deep and wide

He will never leave you
My much afraid
He waits patient
In our prayers unprayed

Now stay close to me
In an amongst the trees
I'll carry your shoes child
You run an play beneath the eaves

Our faith will come by the hearin'
A whisper in the leaves
Listen Johanna hear his voice
In the drone of the bees

He will never leave you
My much afraid
He waits patient
In our prayers unprayed
