Justin Townes Earle, born January 4, 1982 in Nashville, TN, is an American alt-country singer-songwriter who walks the line between old-time country and modern acoustic Indie music by breathing new life into early country, blues and gospel forms. His first release, Yuma, in 2007 was a stark and beautiful set of songs written while Earle was fresh out of rehab and is now re-released by Bloodshot Records, who have a further three albums on their catalogue.
Tired of laying in bed, listening to the water run
Ceiling's falling in, Baby's dress is covered in dust
So I don't care what it costs, Baby dust that old thing off
It's one more night in Brooklyn, Baby we're getting lost
I ain't taking you home, I found a little place that'll do
