Time For Two 03:05
I started cleaning my place when you came through Tried to dust off my heart got dust on you Now there's dishes piling up and work to do Ain't got time for two, Ain’t got time for two Ain’t got time for two, Ain’t got time for you I'm coming through town and need a place to sleep Last time we made love it hurt for weeks Making old lovin don't come cheap Just need a place to sleep, Oh a place to sleep Maybe eat some fried chicken, and brush my teeth I started cleaning my place when you came through

First To Go 02:50
You'll be the first to go I'll be the first to know Took a bike to the corner store And then couldn't come home You'd be a poorer man If you’ve never seen a grown man cry You'd be a richer man If you never saw your momma die

You got me driving long You got me drinking strong coffee And I know that it's bad for my health You got me feeling gone You got me strung along And I know that it's bad for my health And I... I don’t know what to do with myself And I... Yeah I know that it’s bad for my health You got me driving long You got me drinking strong You got me feeling gone You got me strung along And I... I don’t know what to do with myself And I... Yeah I know that it’s bad for my health

Human Again 02:47
You know that I'm here for only one night You know that I'm shy and don't know what's right You make a move, I won't say it's a sin It's good to feel human again If I could find the will to stay And you could find a way to bend We'd run through the trees, make love on our knees It's good to feel human again [When I was a child with a bible in my hands I'd pray to the Lord make me human again] x2 When I was a man with a child in my hands I'd pray to the Lord make me human again x3 You know that I'm here for only one night You know that I'm shy and don't know what's right You make a move, I won't say it's a sin It's good to feel human again [When I was a child with a bible in my hand I'd pray to the Lord make me human again] x2 When I was a man with a child in my hand I'd pray to the Lord make me human again x3

Oh Mother 04:05
Did you love him in the winter? Through the lonely years Once our home now it’s gone Burned from all his whiskey tears You are the flame this house is going down He can only love you so much when he’s chosen to drown Did you love him when he’s drinkin? Waiting for the clue Did he tell you what we all knew? He’d choose a bottle over you You are the flame this house is going down He can only love you so much when he’s chosen to drown Gin looks like water to a daughter When he stumbles in the door Lock the windows when it’s raining I hear you say no more You are the flame this house is going down He can only love you so much when he’s chosen to drone

Ain’t I good enough to fall in love with Ain’t I good enough to walk you home If I’m good enough to fall in love with Am I better off being alone Ain’t I bad enough to fall in love with Ain’t bad enough to take you home If I’m bad enough to fall in love with Am I better off being alone Bridge: Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Girls I’m not too blind to see. You’re not in love with me Ain’t I rough enough to fall in love with Ain’t I tough enough to build you a home If I’m rich enough to fall in love with Am I better of rolling stoned?

Sock Song 03:17
I pulled my jeans from the dryer I pulled a flannel from there to There was a sock stuck on the flannel There was a boy stuck on you You always said relationships Are like a pair of dirty socks One of them likes staying One likes getting lost There’s always a first time When you feel that you must leave You’ve researched and you’ve reasoned But found no reason to leave I threw two socks in the drier And it’s been a couple weeks One of them has run off And I think I’ve got cold feet There’s always a first time When you feel that you must leave You’ve even gone to counseling And you still don’t feel free And it feels just like the first time But I’ve got to walk away I hope it doesn’t take a lifetime To find a reason to stay
8.
Lost at sea, always traveling alone Lost at sea, the sails are full but the wind won’t blow I am the captain but I know not where to go I am the captain because I do not have a home The night sky holds the moon Holds the ocean Holds the ship That will bring me home Bring me home to you Lost at shore, always captive and alone Lost at shore, wondering where these white sands blow I am the dreamer and I need somewhere to go I am the dreamer because I can’t call this my home The night sky holds the moon Holds the ocean Holds the ship That will bring me home Bring me home to you Lost at shore, lost at sea Always homeless, never free This is not how we are meant to be Lost at shore, lost at sea The night sky holds the moon Holds the ocean Holds the ship That will bring me home Bring me home to you

Northern Sky 04:17
I never felt magic crazy as this I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea I never held emotion in the palm of my hand Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree But now you're here Brighten my northern sky. Been a long time that I'm waiting Been a long that I'm blown Been a long time that I've wandered Through the people I have known Oh, if you would and you could Straighten my new mind's eye. Would you love me for my money Would you love me for my head Would you love me through the winter Would you love me 'til I'm dead Oh, if you would and you could Come blow your horn on high
10.
I found a green lighter Friday I met a red headed girl I said I might let you kiss me You said you'd like to be my girl I found a four-leaf clover Before you passed my way I pulled out a cigarette You helped to light my way Oh, it's the little things that lead us through the day Oh, it's the little things that make me wanna stay I found a job last Thursday And I'll be leaving soon But I'd still like to kiss you In the red light of the moon Oh, it's the little things that lead us through the day Oh, it's the little things that make me wanna stay Oh, it's the little things that lead us through the day Oh, it's the little things that make me wanna stay
11.
Five Bucks 02:47
I'd rather save my friends Or just myself Just like life Just like everyone else I got five bucks To put in the tank I'll kick your ass If you get in the way I'm doing fine I just started a fire I saved my home And watched the Forest burn I guess I'll never learn And if I do I won't have the money Get the truth out to you

about

Another Burn On The AstroTurf (January 24, 2020, Fluff and Gravy Records) was recorded over five days by a seven-piece band inside the OK Theater. It’s a melancholy rhapsody that recalls the uncorked rock n’ roll spirituality of king mystic Van Morrison, the gloomy nostalgia of dark prince Nick Drake and the songcraft sans self-seriousness of 70s Muscle Shoals.

Like those psycho-spiritual song crafters, Budwig's power comes from vocal idiosyncrasies – intonations of love, impermanence, hope, humor. The album opens with originals “Time For Two”, “First To Go”, and “Strong Coffee”– originally presented with just solo guitar (and crackling wood stove) on the album Sabai. The songs are recorded here live, full band, in medley, with hot electric guitar, woody double bass, and drums. The band electrifies and scourges the flesh of the songs into fully formed folk rock stunners.

The brightest moments on the album come from a transcendent Rolling Stones “Beast Of Burden” homage, “Rolling Stoned”, in which he ponders if he is, in fact, bad enough, rich enough, good enough. The answer is, of course, not, but he also humorously notes that if any of us were that good, then aren’t we better off with...something better? On “Sock Song” the dynamics of intimate relationships boil down to one sock’s tendency to wander from its destined partner as soon as it hits the dryer. His musical similarities to spiritual seekers Van Morrison and Nick Drake are undeniable now, but he’s not lost on the path as them, he’s grounded, infectiously grateful. Bart’s mastery of dramatic irony turns his work with complex emotional states of being into comforting, uplifting, relatable music.
