Janel Drewis – In The Pines / Where Did You Sleep Last Night?

My Daddy was a Railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from here . . .

You’ve caused me to weep, you’ve caused me to mourn
You caused me to lose my home . . .

An Xavier song, one he likes to sing after the sun goes down. It marks his sensibility, all the things done to him, all the things driving him to seek out restitution. A hefty portion of his righteous rage, all bottled up inside this tune, among others, illuminating the way when the stars go out, in the dark of the pines in the New Rome forests.
