The Rosinators on the Leftfield Stage, Glastonbury Festival, 2005

"When American roots music deejays rave about bluegrass passion, Cajun verve
and country-gospel authenticity, you know that The Rosinators are the real deal.
From deep in the heart of Balham Alligator territory, the London-based trio have
added their own stamp to the American old time tradition so convincingly that most
of their radio airplay comes from US stations. Formed in 2001, they blazed out of
the traps with dynamic three-part vocal harmonies and fiery twin-fiddle attacks
driven by crackin' guitar picking."
[Acoustic Music Centre - Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Aug 2005]

Lyrics / Guitar Chords

Poncho's Lament
(As sung by Tom Waits - see Tom Waits Lyrics Library )

As sung by The Rosinators

             G                         D                  G
1. The stairs sound so lonely without you
     B7                              C
    Ain't made my bed in a week
                                  D            G        E
    Coffee stains on the paper I'm writing
                 A7                               D
    And I'm too choked up inside to speak
               G                   D              G        
    Well  I know that our differences pulled us apart
    B7                                      C
    Never spoke a word heart to heart
                 D             G      E
    I'm glad that you're gone
            A7            D                        G       D
    But I wish to the Lord you'd come home

Chorus
                G     D             G
    Yes I'm glad that you're gone
    B7                      C
    Got the feeling so strong
                 D             G     E
    I'm glad that you're gone
             A7            D                       G       D
    But I wish to the Lord you'd come home

2. Well my guitar still plays your favorite song
    Though the strings have been outta tune for some time
    Every time I play a chord,
    I pray out to the lord
    That you'll quit your honkey-tonkin' sing my song

Chorus
    And I'm glad that you're gone
    Got the feeling so strong
    I'm glad that you're gone
    But I wish to the Lord you'd come home

3. Throw another log onto the fire
     Yes I admit I'm a lousy liar
    As the coals die down and flicker
    I hear that guitar picker
    Play the song we used to sing so long ago

Chorus
    I'm glad that you're gone
    Got the feeling so strong
    I'm glad that you're gone
    But I wish to the Lord you'd come home
