"Pickup Truck"

by Avi Jacob
 
 

In 2017, music has to have heart....

    Avi was recently awarded an Ashir Music Fellowship which led to recording with Simone Felice (producer of the Billboard #1 Lumineers album) & members of the Felice Brothers. The result was the Surrender EP , release date TBA

   Born & raised in New England, Avi ran away from home in his teen years and ended up in Boston. Spending the next several years in & out of hospitals with a genetic disease, Avi was mostly confined to his bedroom where he spent his time & energy creating songs. After recuperating Avi came out of the room and into the world with the ability to express his true and deepest feelings through song, in a way most men are discouraged to do from birth. Moving to South Carolina, Avi started making a name for himself playing music festivals, being featured in dozens of music blogs & samplers. Over the last two years, Avi has been balancing touring the country playing cafés, clubs & theatres with farming, truck driving, & doing demolition.

   No matter how many thousands of musical acts there are, when you hear something that has that special quality it resonates immediately. Check Avi out and see if you hear it.

Lyrics

"Pickup Truck"

 

Don't know what I had going through my mind

when I covered up that wooden box with dirt

Anyone that knows me well can sure nuff easily tell

that I don't think twice on those that I hurt

 

Oh dear father, even sold your pickup truck

when I was down on my luck

how did I repay? I left you down to die in Tennessee

Trying to understand, is the folly of man?

Can I be forgiven for what I've done?

sincerely, your disgrace of an only son

 

There's this saying it goes 'keep your enemies close'

but don't that leave your loved ones astray?

On the day I heard he died in my own bedroom I layed

with my enemy asleep two feet away

 

Oh dear father, even sold your pickup truck

when I was down on my luck

how did I repay? I left you down to die in Tennessee

Trying to understand, is the folly of man?

Can I be forgiven for what I've done?

sincerely, your disgrace of an only son

 

No one was there to stop my sister's crying

my dad had left & I was busy getting myself high

as a kite

I'm sorry , I'd die to hear you say 'my son

don't worry none'
