about

Written when our daughter Indi asked “Can I get just a little bit more?” at an old-time music camp. Lauding the philanderer’s life, Pharis wrote it for Jason to sing, and had the “circus” instrumental section in the middle planned from the get-go.

lyrics

I am a self described time waster with nothing on my mind but living in a big old world
Of paint and powder, lucky golden rings
Black pearls and hula girls, and always someone’s thing
I hold it close to be a rambler, I hold it close to be nobody’s own
So I say to you all here in this old town
I’ll see you when the next big thing comes around

Can I just get a little bit more, just get a little bit more
Till the hard times come a-knocking at my door
Leave the garden gate open, old pal of mine
Leave the garden gate open, old pal of mine

The times are moving, the times getting dark
I haven’t heard a wink or nod from round these parts
I haven’t seen the gallery of light since I took down your photo from the mantel of my mind
You could be close to heaven on this earth
I wouldn’t settle for less than what you’re worth
A gamble when you say yes, and one when you don’t
I keep on shaking my head, old pal

about

Pharis & Jason Romero Horsefly, British Columbia

Their deep love of old music, rural life, and archaic banjo tunings are the undercurrents; the desires for love, connection and community flow throughout. The songs form a constellation that tells an ancient and archetypal story visible to anyone who looks up at the sky on a summer night. And to all those who listen it whispers down below: “Slow down, dig deep, and love your neighbor.” ... more
