Bart Budwig Moscow

Bart Budwig grew up on the Idaho Palouse, with a pawn shop trumpet and a heart as big as a skyscraper. Bart learned melody from jazz charts, and learned that fault-lines in big hearts create drifting continents and forge new mountains. Everyone close to him disappeared, whether to death or Texas, and from Texas he got a letter from Waylon Jennings entreating him to pick up a guitar and a pen. ... more

Track Name: Damn Good Start (to Waylon & Willie)
How to ease a cowboy’s heart
An empty bottle is a damn good start
A damn good start

How to ease a wanting heart
Walk out the door is a damn good start
A damn good start

When nothing good comes around
And all the uppers leave you down
When getting by never gets you through
What’s left to do?

How to ease a gambler’s heart
Let him win is a damn good start
A damn good start

How to cure a cautious heart
Give it all for nothing is a damn good start
A damn good start

When nothing good comes around
And all the uppers leave you down
When getting by never gets you through
What’s left to do?
I was born a gambling man
I was born a cowboy too
I laid it all down for love
And then walked away too soon
