WPBT Theme Song?

Posted by in Poker

So I’m going through the 700+ songs that make up the SXSW Showcase download, and suddenly, I hit this.

And of course, I think – PERFECT!

So I e-mail the band and explain our lunacy inventive playing methods, and ask for a copy of the lyrics and permission to post them. [I started my e-mail with “Let me preface this by saying, “I am not insane…”]

So here ya go. Enjoy the goodies from this local band, Grady. (yet another reason Austin > LA ;)).

[Italics are mine…you know me, always finding poker meaning in song lyrics…]

HAMMER IN MY HAND

So much trouble in this time. So many stairs to climb
Build your house upon the sand. You know that it won’t stand
Got my hammer in my hand

Take rocks and gravel don’t it
To build that wall around it
Rock so high now baby
Till I can’t get over it
Rock so hard now mama
Hammer all night to break it
The thing that I can’t have baby
Makes me want to take it
Still so many hands to hold. Lies I have not told
Let my conscience be my guide. When there’s no one to confide

Feel it start to slide
Take rocks and gravel don’t it
To build that wall around it
Rock so high now baby
Till I can’t get over it
Rock so hard now mama
Hammer all night to break it
The thing that I can’t have baby
Makes me want to take it
She’s nineteen years old
She’s nineteen years old
She’s nineteen years old
And she got ways like a baby child
Take rocks and gravel don’t it
To build that wall around it
Rock so high now baby
Till I can’t get over it
Rock so hard now mama
Hammer all night to break it
The thing that I can’t have baby
Makes me want to take it
Makes me want to take it
Makes me want to take it
Makes me want to take it
If it takes all night to break it
