about

This is a cover of a very old song by Geeshie Wiley. Recorded live @ Deathchurch in Montreal - May 25, 2012.

lyrics

The last kind words I heared my daddy say
Lord, the last kind words I heared my daddy say

If I die, if I die in the German war
I want you to send my body, send it to my mother, lord

If I get killed, if I get killed, please don't bury my soul
I p'fer just leave me out, let the buzzards eat me whole

When you see me comin' look 'cross the rich man's field
If I don't bring you flour I'll bring you bolted meal

I went to the depot, I looked up at the stars
Cried, some train don't come, there'll be some walkin' done

My mama told me, just before she died
Lord, precious daughter, don't you be so wild

The Mississippi river, you know it's deep and wide
I can stand right here, see my babe from the other side

What you do to me baby it never gets outta me
I may not see you after I cross the deep blue sea

XOTHOGUA Montréal, Québec

Xothogua formed near the end of 2010, with the intention of creating a band that was heavy, and loud as fuck. We also wanted the freedom to be able to experiment with everything. Until this day, none of the songs have a set structure. Each song grows based on feeling and communication within the band. Current lineup: Devo, Lashen, Brennan, Ari, and Michelle. Past members: Sarah, Yailen, Mark ... more
