Tyler Childers - Banded Clovis lyrics

Tina Nolan had a man With a good place for siftin’ He invited me diggin’ So I picked up my screen And a shovel to dig And a jar of shine He traded me fair for a bottle of wine His brother’s Barnes Mountain wine We trudged through the snow Straight up the hillside Took a ridge for a while Then we slowly went down To an overhang, hid from the ridgeline We bent over our handles And we bit in the ground The dark and bloody ground It was a b**h to break ground But the wine kept us going The moonshine was flowing And keeping us warm Cause you can’t hold a girl With a fistful of shovel Gotta find your fire In the company of corn We dug for a while Then it all turned to ashes Found a bunch of broke flint And a few bits of bone Then I heard Jesse yell Over the pile he was siftin’ Shook the hills like the angels callin’ us home Jesse and Zachary, come home! It was banded as hell It was fluted in clovis It was hot as the pistol That I kept on my side I was fiendin’ so fierce I was broke a** and busted I pulled out my pistol And I took Jesse’s life A clovis like that Is a hard point to find Makes pills swift to come by With a good chunk of change Left over for burn On whatever meanness Whatever woman is coming my way Darling, come my way I sit in this cell For the banded clovis I stole off of Nolan When I k**ed him that day I reckon the chase Of the pills and the powder Corn liquor, and woman Are the culprits to blame
