Naughty Boy 04:06
Naughty Boy She was a slow cooker, The kind that haunts your sleep. The kind of woman that wakes you from your dreams. And I remember all that time, I was just an innocent one. But in the end that little devil, Oh, she won. Mother get me my bible Cuz I need to be saved. I remember that time that I met her, I fell into her eyes. It was last summer in the rain; In the middle of July. She was a slow cooker, the kind who hypnotize. Like an angel oh she called me It was outta sight. Oh Father get me my shovel Cuz I got to dig my Only Grave. And I haven’t been the same since that last July Oh in my mind she wanders, into that night Where that slow cooker she held me tight And beneath a thousand stars it was outta sight I said Mother get me bible I need to be saved

No Tomorrow 05:18
No Tomorrow All kinds of people dancing around in circles All chasing the same ole’ dreams Me, I like it simple like a cute little dimple Of a kid who is innocent and free And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow And I’m tryin’ to live my life like there aint no tomorrow. Like there aint no tomorrow All the ups and downs and the bumpin all around Is worth it when you live your dream It’s really all so simple like a tiny little ripple Of a wave in a raging sea And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow Like there aint no tomorrow. I’m the kind of guy who likes to get high; If you listen to the rumors that you hear. What isn’t clear is neither here or there What does it matter anyway? And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow Like there aint no tomorrow. Ahh…. Home again… It’s often kinda funny but beautiful and sunny And raging thunder lightening But what a fun ride when you’re goin down the slide Like a kid when your innocent and free And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow

Vagabond 04:19
Vagabond I Rolled into Memphis walkin on my two’s And I could see the steel on my ass kickin shoes On the road; just me, my guitar, and my backpack. Not caring if I ever make it back. When I hit Chicago, it was freezing cold. Stayed about eight days then I hit the road Went south and didn’t stop till I hit Texas Just me and my guitar and my backpack And I looked to Boston but I never made it through the door It seems they seen my kind once or twice before Headed west, for the grass in Portland Never once caring if I’d make it back

Casual Dismissal Isn’t it funny how we can be? Casual Dismissal; unquestioned sanity. Does anyone even notice to see or hear or do anything? Does anyone ever care? Tell me Please; tell me please. I was out walking late last spring. All of a sudden felt different; I wish that I could explain. I felt happy. I felt sad. I felt everything and in-between. Has anyone ever felt that? Tell me please; tell me please. And it’s all funny, how we can be. One minute lovers the next enemies. Does anyone even notice how we live each and every day? Does anyone even care? Tell me please; tell me please.

Story Song 03:46
Story Song Here’s a story about Johnny Boy Blue Everyone yelled and picked on the little fool So he shut himself from the world All he had left was his guitar. Happiness is as Happiness was What really matters is how we try to live our life Whether we win or lose Doesn’t even really matter Dreams they come and dreams they go The only time they die is when we don’t follow our heart. It’s better to be late than Early from the beginning. The end of this story is true and blue That little boy became famous for how he played his guitar Isn’t it funny how we’re taught to think about each other?

The Madhatter Yes I’m freaky sometimes deeky And I wonder why you’re pointing I’m no different than you Yes I’m mad and you’re glad That’s just bad and its sad Why is it me and never you? Dancing in circles in funny little squares My hat falls to the floor All kinds of people are looking over here The Madhatter I fear is me. So I wonder what your thinking I don’t know what you’re seeing I’ve done nothing to you. How can I take this cloud Over me like a shroud? I’m left with one thing to do. Dancing in circles in funny little squares My hat falls to the floor All kinds of people are pointing over here The Madhatter I fear is me. And my Hat it just said Don’t throw me on your bed Bad things will happen to you but they are here and far and it breaks my Mad heart why is this cloud over me? Dancing in circles in funny little squares My hat flies up off the floor With two blue eyes and a funny little smile She sings to me: “I’m so High, so High. I’m High as a kite.” I can’t win in this game So I think I won’t play: I tip my Mad Hat to you.

I’ll Remember You I remember walkin alone with you Sun Shiny Days and underneath the deep blue moon I remember the color of your eyes And I remember the way you said goodbye And I’ll remember you the rest of my life. I remember; hold you close hold you near Even when you weren’t close you were always very dear. You said you loved me but that was a lie. And I remember the way you said goodbye. And I’ll remember you the rest of my life. I had to go; you knew it deep down in your heart. I think it was Europe or somewhere equally as far And I remember the look upon and in your eyes I remember the way you said goodbye. And I’ll remember you the rest of my life. I held you close all those times you held me near And I reach out and feel nothing because your not here I hear your voice and I see your eyes I remember the way you said goodbye. And I remember the way you said goodbye And I’ll remember you the rest of my life.

Slow Down 06:04
Slow Down You better slow down, your doing too much Time to say stop; enough’s enough. You better look in the mirror You aint getting young Time to say stop; enough’s enough You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough Slow Down. You got a dark side and he’s killing you Before you know it you’ll find yourself With nothing you can do; better slow down. Your doing too much One of these times it will be enough’s enough You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough Slow Down. Slow Down, But I like it…. Do you even remember when they all called you Ghost? Way down in the deep soo south; way down, way down in Memphis. No one, including me, we all never thought you’d make it home But deep down inside you pushed it You gotta let this all go You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough Slow Down. You better slow down, your doing too much Time to say stop; enough’s enough. You better look in the mirror You aint getting young On of these dark times you won’t have no luck. You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough Slow Down, Slow Down. Slow Down, Slow Down, Slow Down…

Tunnel Of Love Look me in the eye; look me in the eyes before I go down Look me in the eye; look me in the eyes, before I go down Cuz a cat like me, sure do love to fool around Gonna hit that landing strip gonna get on board gonna take off. Gonna hit that landing strip gonna get on board gonna take off Baby when we land; you & me sure gonna get off. I never thought that I could love you In the ways that you think and move But something happened and it all changed I don’t know what but I aint the same You gotta let it all go You gotta let it all hang Let it all go Bump a Grind: Tunnel of Love Come go for a ride; climb on board hold on tight Come go for a ride; climb on board hold on tight In the tunnel of love that’s how this ride goes bump and grind Love, Love, Love
12.
Come Back To Me Woman please tell me Why you went away You left me here standing All so lonely But I still want you And I still need you Come home to me. Once we were a couple Together we were happy Now that we are separate It’s just you and me But I still need you And I still love you Come home to me Woman please help me So I can see All those beautiful memories Of just you and me But I still love you And I still need you Come home to me Come home to me Come home to me Come back (yes to me) Come back (yes to me) Come back to me

about

Mojo Perry captures the beauty and mystery of the Green Fairy with his 2011 release titled “Absinthe Journeys”. It is 52 minutes of the Artists most refined music to date and an incredible follow up to his 2010 releases “Echoing Endlessly Inside My Head" and “Two Equals One”. Upon opening the CD you find yourself with something worth owning! The Artwork is creative, original, and the vibe of this CD is amazing, and that’s just the beginning! The music of “Absinthe Journeys” provides an ears delight of phenomenal guitar playing, serious grooves, psychedelic craziness, and an unbelievable assortment of serious guitar tones! Every song on this record is different from all the others. From the 4 string Cigarbox Guitar tones of “Naughty Boy” and brilliant psychedelic guitar loopings of “Intermission” to the raw heaviness of “La Fee Verte” and the laughter of “Madness” you have a journey in itself! The distinct fingerprints of “The Madhatter” and “Vagabond” will stick in your head as well as the gut-wrenching tales of “Slow Down” and “I’ll Remember You”. All in all it’s an exciting record and when you listen to it through headphones you will discover lots of new and exciting sounds inside the songs. After listening to it you feel like you have just discovered something. Whether you are a longtime fan or are just discovering Mojo Perry “Absinthe Journeys” will take you for a great ride and you will become addicted to it’s vibe of Blues infused Psychedelic Rock. This is an outstanding record!
