about

The Potter's Field Ann Arbor, Michigan

"The Potter's Field defies easy description -- Harmoniously haunting, deceptively simple, painting portraits of real life on the canvas of the listeners' hearts and minds with sepia undertones of edgy eeriness, poignant lyrics and bright splashes of toe-tapping energy." ... more

Track Name: Pleasureville [live]
Pleasureville - ©2009
words and music by John Natiw

There's a blind man in the graveyard
with a shovel in his hand
Some folks they claim that he's the devil
Others say he's just a man

He runs the still down by the river
and the whorehouse on the hill
And if his whiskey doesn't kill you
Those women surely will

Pretty girl sits in the window
She got that sympathetic stare
She'll lead a thirsty man to water
Then leave him drownin' there

Across the street they got a bottle
that can take away the pain
But once you reach the bottom
You may never stand again

In Pleasureville
Stand in Pleasureville

In the road there stands a gambler
Burnin' hundred dollar bills
He says "it ain't about the money
No, it's all about the thrills"

There's a man that looks like Elvis
Sellin' one way tickets out
But those tracks are old and rusted
And the engine's broken down

In Pleasureville
Broke down in Pleasureville

Graveyard man says not to worry
"What you need's a resting place"
Then you start to choke and struggle
As the dirt falls on your face

As the people throw the roses
And the preacher shouts amen
That ole devil moves on to another
Starts it all over again

In Pleasureville
Again in Pleasureville
In Pleasureville
Downtown Pleasureville

There's a blind man in the graveyard
with a shovel in his hand
Some folks they claim that he's the devil...
Track Name: On With the Show [live]
On With the Show
Words and music by John Natiw

Curtain goes up, on this old wooden stage
We're all here tonight, and here's where we'll stay
The people they smile, as those lights flicker on
Mostly they listen, but some sing along

And just for an hour
They have the power
To forget all their troubles
On With the Show

Music it echoes, out into the night
The moon through the windows, makin' everything shine
Some where pretty dresses, some dusty work boots
But in the end, they all leave two by two

And just for an hour
They have the power
To forget all their troubles
Hey, On With the Show

An old couple dances, back behind all the seats
The woman she follows, the old man, well, he leads
Me, I keep staring, at the clock on the wall
I know it won't be long, 'till that big curtain falls

But just for an hour
I have the power
To forget all my troubles
And get On With the Show

Just for an hour
We all have the power
So let's forget all our troubles
And get On With the Show
Let's forget all our troubles...
Track Name: Don't Look Down When You Go [live]
Don't Look Down When You Go ©2010
words and music by John Natiw

Summer rain is in the air
Summer rain is in the air
Autumn nights won't be the same
Summer rain is in the air

Suit of clothes across the bed
Suit of clothes across the bed
A tie the color of a rose
Suit of clothes across the bed

Don't look down when you go
Don't look down when you go
Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go

There's a hole in the ground
There's a hole in the ground
Everybody knows
There's a hole in the ground

Length of pine out in the field
Length of pine out in the field
Long black cars all in a line
Length of pine out in the field

Don't look down when you go
Don't look down when you go
Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go

There's a road up in the sky
There's a road up in the sky
Straight ahead and made of gold
There's a road up in the sky

Don't look down when you go
Don't look down when you go
Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go

Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go
