lyrics

Florence Jane Brown
She knew she would die at 25
Florence Jane Brown
She knew she would die at at 25
But blessed are those who die amongst thieves
So she counts up her money
And rolls up her sleeves

Florence Jane Brown
She knew she would lie at 17
Florence Jane Brown
She knew she would lie at 17
But evil takes shape in the thickest of forms
So she straddles her armour
And takes up her thorns

Chorus
Rest for the aching head
Rest for the weary brow
Rest for the way worn feet
Rest from all labour now

Florence, Florence

Florence Jane Brown
She knew she would throw her life away
Florence Jane Brown
She knew she would throw her life away
So she robbed the next bank
And let out a shout
But three shots were fired
And her life was blown out

Florence Jane Brown
She knew that her life would be in vain
Florence Jane Brown
She knew that her life would be in vain
Her gravestone was small
With the briefest of words
For those who sin loudly
Their fall will be worst of all

Chorus

Florence, Florence
how do you think hell will suit you now?

about

Inge Andrew Dunedin, New Zealand

Andrew parlays a more traditional kind of folk-based storytelling on this impressive debut album. She carves out distinctive characters who have a backstory she lightly sketches but allows the listener to fill in the blanks....Andrew brings real passion to these snapshot stories, making these songs and her characters very hard to turn away from.
