well we're waitin agian, throwin thumbs on the side of the road.
ever wonderin ever feelin, tracin lines that noone knows,
well we're waitin agian, side by side and tail to nose
salty breese is finally blowin, hef and haze are chargin marvioso

so let the wind be apon your back
and if there's sun let it shine on your face
and let the rains rip across your path providin swell to last all your days.

pablo please what will we do, now we're finally off the leash.
roster's tail what simply can i loose
findin fisht before the feast.

some times you gona chase them down just to let em go
sometimes you gona run and run em dow jsut to let em go
sometiems its not that you know

well we're waitin here again, throwin thumbs on the side of the road
ever wonderin ever feelin tracin lines that noone knows.

    General CommentI love this song...so chill, so braddigan. The chorus is so awesome, a slight variation of the blessing. Gotta love it.

    General Commentyeah i agree, its so braddigan. i guess it makes it a little easier to deal with the dispatch break up since braddigan is writing all these awesome songs on his own (i still wish they were together though!!) i actually first heard this song right after i got back from a trip to costa rica, which i think is where he wrote it, and its such an awesome song it made me want to go back. i love the guitar and harmonica mix in the beginning. also have you seen the music video? its on his website, its a cool video. if you havent seen it you should check it out. good stuff.

    General Commenti got to see braddigan live in chicago at schubas tavern. his live music experience of this song is so much better than the recording. when i heard him play the opening chords i got the chills, it was so awesome. reinaldo dejesus, the percussionist for braddigan worked so hard, and did a fantastic job. i got to meet him afterward. if braddigan and rei ever come back, i'm definately goin' to see em again. i absolutely love these guys.

    General Commentyeah, i've seen the music video. Great one : ) i think it was written in costa rica, he's written a few there. "fallin'" was another one,i think. i know what you mean about the dispatch break up...sucks. hopefully they'll get back together? at least once more? for the elias fund or something...

    i can't wait to see brad live. i got an email from him a couple of weeks, and he wants to come down here (uni. of florida) and play for us sometime. :) i can't wait...i've got a bunch of his live stuff from basecamp and etzel and such...great stuff. much better live, even though the cd is awesome.

    General Commentyeah i was at that same show (as veritas at aequitas) it was amazing. that drummer kicked ass, both of them were dripping with sweat afterwords because of how hard they were jamming. the opening band was pretty good too, the music wasnt as amazing but their performnace was pretty funny.

    General Commenti was listening to this song, and i thought the following sounded familiar:

    so let the wind be apon your back
    and if there's sun let it shine on your face
    and let the rains rip across your path providin swell to last all your days.

    i realized what it reminded me of: at my grandmother's funeral, the irish blessing was read which goes as follows..

    may the roads rise to meet you
    may the winds be always at your back
    may the sun shine warm upon your face
    the rains fall soft upon your fields
    and until we meet again
    may God hold you in the hollow of His hands
