ALL I'M THINKIN' ABOUT

filmed acoustic performance


[Spoken intro:] The artist is always creating a box, he's always building this, this world that you're, that you... In the end you sort of get caught inside of yourself, so you're always looking for a trap door. And you're always trying to come up with different stylistic ideas to help you just suddenly kind of transition out of that box. Besides lyrically, I also try to tonally find just small shifts in tone that sounded like the characters that I was singing about. Some of it is very light, you know, so that, it's slightly different vocal tonality that helps me approach songs that are very sort of fresh point of view. You know, as we're always trying to come up with is a voice you haven't sung from yet and makes the characters feels very alive, you know. Here we go.

One, two, one

Blind man wavin' by the side of the road
I'm in a flat bed Ford carrying a heavy load
A sweet thing sippin' on a blueberry wine
On a flat black highway down in Carolina
Black bird slippin' in a sky of blue

All I'm thinkin' about is you, babe
All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you
Ain't nothin' in this world I can do about it
All I'm thinkin' about is you

Little boy carryin' a fishin' pole
Little girl pickin' berries straight off of the vine
Brown bag filled with a little green toad
We hook 'em through the lip, throw 'em off of the line
Your sweet brown legs got me feeling so blue

All I'm thinkin' about is you, baby
All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you, baby
All I'm thinkin' about is you
Ain't nothin' in this world I can do about it
All I'm thinkin' about is you

Black car shinin' on a Sunday morn
Mama go to church now (Mama go to church now)
Mama go to church now
Friday night daddy's shirt is torn
Daddy's goin' downtown (Daddy's goin' downtown)
Daddy's goin' downtown
Ain't no one understand this sweet thing we do

All I'm thinkin' about is you, baby
All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you, baby
All I'm thinkin' about is you
Ain't nothin' in this world I can do about it
All I'm thinkin' 'bout is you

Field turned up, the seed is sowed
Rain comin' in from over 'cross the road
Big black curtain coming 'cross the field
Blind'll see, lame will be healed
Brown eyed girl, I turned the back on you, now it's lonely

All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you
Ain't nothin' in this world I can do about it
All I'm thinkin' about is you
All I'm thinkin' about is you
