Dedicated to Timothy Cole (July 1, 1960 – December 2, 1999)


Save yourself, for I am lost
I knew the price, I paid the cost
And when the scales of justice finally caught up with my cause There was nothing but skin and bones left subject to your laws

And all I am is in your hands
And all that’s left of the sands
In that hourglass rain down on me so cold and unkind
I would cast it down upon the floor if I thought it’d give me back my life

But in your eyes I’m just a guilty man
Tried and convicted for the color of my skin
And the nightmare descends again

Still the heart beating in my chest
And Lay my soul to its rest
Send your children to their sleep
Safe from knowing the bargain you keep


from From Sunlight Into Shadow, released October 4, 2011

Brian Ledford draws from his roots and what’s close to his heart and transforms it into great songs.

Music as much informed by The Clash as The Flatlanders. At turns as lush as Lanois, or as direct as Cash. The son of Oklahoma concrete finishers and Oilmen, he was born and raised in Texas based in Lubbock, Ft. Worth and Austin before relocating to the Pacific Northwest.
