Honcho Graham From Birmingham

Download MP3



Aching bones and creaky homes and dust clouds on the street
Leaves are pinned by restless winds and fear
Premonition, intuition, trouble's near
Honcho Graham from Birmingham is here

The grinding fades from combine blades, the tractor's hungry heart
At three o'clock, the blackbird flock is gone
No one knows why Jenna Rose just disappeared
But Honcho Graham from Birmingham is here

Train smoke flies and alibis are sinking in the wind
The little toys from little boys are gone
Silence fills the flour mills and streets are clear
Honcho Graham from Birmingham is here

Now every year there's less of here as nature chews it down
A town bereft and all that's left is rust
But any gent who's smelled the scent of solemn fear
Knows Honcho Graham from Birmingham was here
Honcho Graham from Birmingham was here

I have been a fan for a short while, but pretty into this song and I hvae thought about this song in particular for a while... Here are some ideas as to what it's about, and since I didn't write it, I may be totally off, but here it is. First thought: Pedophile/serial killer/Creepy dude. So this drifter named "Honcho Graham" shows up, Jenna Rose is abducted and parents take their kids off the streets and the whole town kinda disperses... okay so that's kinda weird, but this is more of what I think Honcho Graham is some kind of executive from a large company and he shows up to shut down the towns mill/production and all of the jobs disappear. The Nature is creeping back into the streets of a once bustling town. Every one is gone. Just some Ideas, now Josh, you tell me! omar hani Salam/Peace
