about

Shiny and the Spoon Cincinnati, Ohio

Called “Perhaps the best folk duo our region has to offer” (The Historic Southgate House), Shiny and the Spoon give off the warmth and intimacy of the likes of Johnny Cash and June Carter, with transcendent vocals and a vibrant acoustic core, complimented by sprinklings of ukulele, guitar, harmonica, and boot-stomping. ... more

Track Name: Snowflake
Is it still Winter
Silver and gold
Dancing down the cold

And it’s not that I’m crazy
I know you love that I am
Snowflake in your hand
You can’t melt it down
Melt it down
Melt down
Say how

However you fold it
However you cut
My heartstrings go to the gut

And it’s not that I’m crazy
I know you love that I am
A perfect shell in the sand
Unplanned
There for now
There for now
There now
Till I’m found

Is it still Winter
Black and blue
Bruises through and through

Is it that I’m pretty
Am I one of a kind
Icy, blue design
Aligned
Done and done
Done and done
Done, done
Undone
Track Name: Coriander Blues
They stuck me in the back with my stomach in my shoes
And I played like they told me to
Two by two swingin’ softly in the noose
Where they strung up the best in you (best in you, best in you)

Dummy entertainers with nothin’ left to lose
Separate from the wood and glue
They fill an acre with coriander blues
But today this old room’ll do (room’ll do, room’ll do)

It’s better the strings are broken
Than set and bound
Fillin’ up the seats with hope and sound

It’s better the strings are broken
Than set and bound
Fillin’ up the seats with hope and sound (sound, sound)
Track Name: Take On Me
Originally released by a-ha. Usage by permission.
lyrics
Talking away
I don’t know what I’m to say
I’ll say it anyway
Today’s another day left to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, OK

Take on me
Take me on
I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone in a day or two
In a day or two

So needless to say
I’m odds and ends
But that’s just me
Stumbling away
Slowing learning that life is OK
Say after me
It’s no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me
Take me on
I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone in a day or two
In a day or two

The things that you say
Is it live or is it just to play my worries away
You’re all the things I’ve got to remember
Shying away
I’ll be coming for you anyway

Take on me
Take me on
I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone in a day or two
In a day or two
Track Name: Ferris Wheel
Turn around, Ferris wheel, turn like a 45
Sing us a sweet song, sing till we say goodbye

Dusty old canvas, painted like Christmas
Portions and footsteps and equal parts glitter and grime

Find your heart over and over
Get away, get away
Don’t let it get away, get away

Hold my hand tight on this here roller coaster
We’ll point at the sky when we’re under the Dipper and then
We’ll go round again

I caught a breeze there and sighed out to match it
I caught a breeze there and sighed out for every one

Find your heart over and over
Get away, get away
Don’t let it get away, get away

Turn around carousel, seed of a maple tree
Here comes the sky falling down all around my feet

Find your heart over and over
Get away, get away
Don’t let it get away, get away
Track Name: Thirteen Crates
I’m gonna mail you in thirteen crates
To all the people that you once loved
With all your banking interests in thirteen states
Truth is one crate outta be enough
Oh, you better cry to God above

I’m gonna drown you in thirteen lakes
For your damns that break and flood out small towns
I’m gonna nail you to thirteen stakes to two railroad ties to hang upside down
Tell St. Peter than your smile’s a frown

Well I learned right from wrong between union songs and my Grandfather’s wake
They said after he died, from his throat they pried
An apple-sized hunk of coal and lead
Two years later my father was laid under the scales of an underground snake
Mama told me son, when that copper head’s done
You’ve got to follow the coal train and go for the head

Thirteen crates on the top of the hill
Jack fell down and went straight to Hell
Thirteen crates on the top of the hill
Jack fell down and went straight to Hell
Jack fell down and went straight to Hell
