Greg Connor added his amazing harp to the song. It really adds depth to it. I love Greg’s playing on the song. Thanks so much, Greg! This is why Alonetone is great.

Lyrics & Music by Nick Plagakis

I count my blessings
One by one
But I stand guilty
Of a heavy burden
Come here sister and cleanse this sin from my hands
Night after night
I toss and turn
Thoughts of life
Make my heart yearn
Come here sister and say a prayer for my soul
I’m a man troubled with contradiction
I’m a man troubled with contradiction

A foot in the door
A foot on the road
Angels and demons
Pull me back and forth
Come here sister and cleanse this sin from my hands

I go to work
With a smile on my face
But I come home
Feeling like a fake
I’m down in the mud
I’m stuck in a rut
Gotta make a change
Gotta get myself up
Come here sister and say a prayer for my soul
I’m a man troubled with contradiction
I’m a man troubled with contradiction

Yeah, I'm diggin' your handle on the Blues. Cool composition. Greg's harp is a serious seasoning to this delicious dish, like celantro in a taco!

There's a Texan, Michael O'Neal, a unique songwriter (subject and sound.) This piece reminds me of his material. Great song.
