Plays (last 30 days):
Let's write a story of a tidal wave
We run out of luck, we run out of days
We run out of gas a hundred miles away
From a station

There's a war and a plague, smoke and disaster
Lions in the coliseum, screams of laughter
Motherless children, a witness and a bible
Nothing but rain ahead and no chance for our survival

Just before the flood comes
Just before the night falls
Just before the blood runs
Into the valley
Just before my eyes go
Just before we can't go
No further
Love throws a line to you and me

I heard someone calling me from very far away
Sister, oh sister, did I hear them say?
Prisoner of this endless story of pain
You hold the key, try to find the way

Just before the flood comes
Just before the night falls
Just before the blood runs
Into the valley
Just before my eyes go
Just before it all blows
To pieces
We see love throw a line to you and me

Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line

Love, you better pick up your pace
If we're going to win this race
Love, we're running out of time
Pull yourself up from behind

Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line

Don't really see the connection....and she ain't young....which is one thing I LOVE about her

 
She's only got a few years on me, so either she's not old or I am old.
rockin
i would put patty on stage with paul simon. because of her lyrical range and the fact that she is a hell of a guitar player. their vocal compatibility is a given, they combine the private with the  public, plus they would look cute together, sharing a secret "i'm so stoked," between songs, about how stunned the audience looked.

not to be forgotten,
with james mcmurtry i have put nancy griffith.
with nancy griffith i have put steve earle.
with steve earle i have put julie miller.
with julie miller i have put townes van zant
and with townes i have put patty griffin.
 
note to RP old timers — do we have a thread like this, fantasy football only with music ? dream concerts? etc. because i think we would fill that rascal up...


looking forward to hearing more of Patty

She has much the same feeling as James McMurtry. He's a bit more offbeat but they'd make a duo...

Compared to Bonnie Raitt, she's young (Raitt's got 15 years on her).  And I hear a bit of her, both have strong Gospel influences in their music!  Very nice!

Bonnie is a bit more bluesy the Patty.  Both great ginger singers, though I bet it Bonnie didn't color she would be white now.{#Mrgreen}

can't wait to hear her new album.   i know i can count on bill to be spinnin' it!
If you like this style, you may want to check out Ollabelle. One of the singers is Levon Helm's daughter Amy, and she's fantastic!
A young Bonnie Raitt!
Always a pleasure to hear Patty...she is great live if you get a chance. :clap:
I can't seem to get enough of Patty. Thanks BillG!
