Double Miner 02:18
"Double Miner" I was born a double miner Way back beneath the woods My people in the Carolinas How could I wind up diggin' holes in the cold, dark ground Ooh ooh, I'm going down Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh down We drove to Mississippi Just north of Baton Rouge There were voodoo rites in the Cajun night Sometimes you're better off just paying' the Devil his dues Ooh ooh, I'm goin' down Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh down Ooh ooh, I'm goin' down Whoa oh oh oh oh oh down Ooh ooh, I'm goin' down Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh down Ooh ooh, I'm goin' down Ooh ooh, I'm goin' down They criticized me and then they enlightened me Ooh ooh ooh down

Bomb 03:28
"Bomb" He wakes up in the morning He pulls his shirt and boots on He grabs his lunchpail and heads out into the light And he goes and he goes and he works all day For his meager little paycheck When Monday comes, his money is already spent And when he gets home, his dinner's cold His wife is yappin' at the kids and he snaps And decides he'll run away He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He hopes one day for a better life As he scratches his lottery ticket The jackpot never comes, he hangs his head And he goes and he goes and he works all day For his meager little paycheck When Monday comes, it's off to work again He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He's gonna drop a bomb on you He dropped a bomb on you He dropped a bomb on you He dropped a bomb on you He dropped a bomb on you He dropped a bomb on you He dropped a bomb on you Oh whoa oh whoa Oh whoa oh whoa Whoa whoa whoa Whoa whoa whoa Whoa whoa whoa whoa Oh whoa oh whoa Oh whoa oh whoa Whoa whoa whoa Whoa whoa whoa Whoa whoa whoa whoa

Judy 03:59
"Judy" Judy let me know Should I even try? Are you home alone? Or with another guy? Judy can't you see I've given you my heart? Will you come and hold me close? Or watch me fall apart? I've been waitin' I've been prayin' that we'd get together for so long Oh please please tell me Tell me right from wrong Judy this is me Puttin' it on the line If the truth be told I want you all the time And I guess that we both know We could never be Maybe in another life Judy, Judy, Judy wait for me I've been waitin' I've been prayin' that we'd get together for so long Oh please please tell me Tell me right from wrong Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Judy everyday Judy in the skies You know that we're in love So please don't act surprised And even if it's sin In Hell, I'll do my time As long as you are there with me Judy watch me, Judy watch me burn I've been waitin' I've been prayin' that we'd get together for so long Oh please please tell me Tell me right from wrong Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy Oh whoa oh Judy

"Live Like Lions" We are right here where we should be Payin' reverence to our gods and our beliefs And if we sat through a world on fire If it all goes up in smoke I still miss you like I missed you all along I'll tell you one thing you should know If you're gonna stand up and be counted, then let's go We can choose to live like lions or conveniently forget We can stand our ground and fight and win it all Come on now, children of the night Let's go lay waste to every fuckin' thing in sight Awaken creatures of the dawn Go forth and kill and carry on Go forth and kill and carry on Hard times are comin', that's for sure Days of poverty and hate and death and war We might not be proud like lions and we may have some regrets But we're killers, we are born killers in the end Come on now, children of the night Let's go lay waste to every fuckin' thing in sight Awaken creatures of the dawn Go forth and kill and carry Awaken creatures of the dawn Go forth and kill and carry Awaken creatures of the dawn Go forth and kill and carry on

Happily 02:41
"Happily" We're impostors Living in our very own skin I don't know where it all begins and ends no more We can't listen 'Cause we don't talk anymore We'll have to learn to ignore all these memories Guess I'm gonna move far away 'Cause I just can't stand to see you livin' happily Think it over Let's go back to the start Before we broke each other's hearts a thousand times You never cared about money Even though we never had enough You seemed to like simpler stuff Maybe you settled Guess I'm gonna move far away 'Cause I just can't stand to see you living Living without me Guess I'm gonna move far away 'Cause I just can't stand to see you living happily Guess I'm gonna move far away 'Cause I just can't stand to see you living Living without me Guess I'm gonna move far away Guess I'm gonna move far away Guess I'm gonna move far away 'Cause I just can't stand to see you livin' happily

Lonesome 02:49
"Lonesome" Feels like I've been here all night Had a shit ton of beers itchin' to fight I won't call you I'd better go home By my lonesome The damage is already done There's a million ten races already run And you can't ever hide from your fears When you're lonesome When you're lonesome Here comes the cold hand of doom Feel his icy dead grip As he walks in the room No escapin', he'll come for us all When we're lonesome When we're lonesome When we're lonesome

Hooligans 02:58
"Hooligans" Olé olé olé olé Olé olé Olé olé olé olé Olé olé We grew up down the block together Gettin' in trouble with the law Never worried about a long-lost love or romance Walk them streets early in the evenin' Singin' out our favorite songs And if somebody ever crosses our path, then fuck 'em Back when Back when we was hooligans Drinkin' beers in the alley of the Rat Original Beantown firm Central Square and the lights go down on Broadway We belong, we belong together We stand proud and true Remember when I said that I'd always be there for you Back when Back when we was hooligans Back when Back when we was hooligans And we rely on each other We will provide for each other And we rely on each other We will provide for each other And we rely on each other We will provide for each other And we rely on each other We will provide for each other Back when Back when we was hooligans Back when Back when we was hooligans Back when Back when we was hooligans Olé olé olé olé Olé olé Olé olé olé olé Olé olé

Two Robbers 04:03
"Two Robbers" One night In the Moors Riding towards the Highlands I was trying to make it home Two robbers Came for me Two robbers Came for me I had no place to go I feared for my life Drew my pistol, drew my knife Shots rang out And two robbers hit the ground One robber said to the other, "I am dead" "I'm dying, I'm dying" "Have you any silver?" "Have you any gold?" "Then hand it over now" I feared for my life Drew my pistol, drew my knife Shots rang out And two robbers hit the ground One robber said to the other, "I am dead" "I'm dying, I'm dying" Blood began to flow My hands, they reeked of murder And they put them in the ground I feared for my life Drew my pistol, drew my knife Shots rang out And two robbers hit the ground One robber said to the other, "I am dead" "I'm dying, I'm dying"

"Try To Make It Right" (Darkbuster) Woke up this morning Sunlight hurt my eyes I looked around and noticed you was gone Much to my surprise I really don't remember Did I do something wrong? Come back, my baby Please come home And I'll try to make And I'll try to make it right And I'll try to make And I'll try to make it right What happened to you? You left me flat I turned around, and you were gone And I'll try to make And I'll try to make it right And I'll try to make And I'll try to make it right And I'll try to make And I'll try to make it right And I'll try to make And I'll try to make it right

Bruiser 02:42
"Bruiser" No, I never meant to leave you, buddy We're so sad we have to see you go And whenever you was gone from us, we shook out of control We was runnin' with the real kids, baby They was runnin' with me And we miss you, Bruiser No one's ever gonna know the love The love we shared for you Now it seems as if we're all alone Haven't got a clue But I swear that we would fight the Devil To hold you in our arms And we love you, Bruiser And I'm writin' just to hopefully let you know That your Mom and Pop are always gonna love you so We'll be together, buddy, it won't be long We'll keep you from harm And I'm singin' with the hopes of maybe you can hear And remember how we love each other all the years We'll be together, buddy, it'll be soon 'Til then here's this tune Bruiser, Bruiser, Bruiser

about

There's no question about it: Lenny Lashley is an institution in New England. Whether appearing as part of a band or as a solo artist, the power of his songwriting connects with audiences from Boston to all corners of the globe.

Turning his eye to both the injustices of the world and personal struggles closer to home, it is his honesty, compassion, and humanity that never fail to shine through and connect deeply with people.

This very special digital EP is Lenny at his most raw and stripped down: simply the man, his guitar, and his powerful songs, recorded live in front of a wildly appreciative audience at the Button Factory Stage in Portsmouth, NH.

For longtime fans who have caught Lenny live in such a setting before, we don't need to tell you how great this set is. For those who have not, prepare to be blown away. There's nothing like seeing him live, but this passionate performance captures a bit of that magic for all to experience.
