lyrics

All day on the black road
A hooded head to hide
All that’s owned is borrowed
Until the man hitched a ride
They found his hands in Shiloh
Dredged the lake in Lee
Closed the book in ‘78
Rain erodes the deed
On the upward way
Suns on sinners rise
Upon the low and high
Upon the low and high
Shores of shackled men
Sons of mothers blind
Upon the low and high
Upon the low and high
A million mercies told
Of a father’s house of light
In the shelter of the fold
Sleeps the ninety and nine
On the upward way
Suns on sinners rise
Upon the low and high
Upon the low and high
Shores of shackled men
Sons of mothers blind
Upon the low and high
Upon the low and high
Let the water come down
Let the water come down
Let the water come down
Let the water come down
My legs are dead / My legs are dead
But my arms won’t tire / My arms won’t tire

about

Northern Arms Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Northern Arms are masters of haunting moods and striking storytelling. Helmed by singer and songwriter Keith Richard Peirce, the ten-piece band incorporates dark imagery with a musical mystique that hits on jazz, folk, and gospel, and blends it with gothic Americana in the vein of 16th Horsepower, Tom Waits and legendary Austin cult faves Lift to Experience.
- John Vettese, WXPN The Key
