Thieving In The Evening video from Deadly Gents

| May 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

The Deadly Gentlemen can’t wait for their next album to get new music in front of their fans. They’ve released a video for a new song, Thieving In The Evening, which banjo man and primary songwriter Greg Liszt says is a contemporary take on a traditional blues form.

“This is a previously unrecorded song that I wrote last year. We’ve been playing it in concert so we took a day off this winter to record it and make a video. We are planning a small series of video singles of various kinds this year, we have a couple more in the pipeline that are just live videos of the band playing outside in various locations. A

nd we’ll be doing another studio track and video soon. In an ideal world we’d get cracking on a new full length CD when the summer ends.”

Here’s the video…

 

Greg has shared the lyrics so that everyone can sing along.

Open up that window, I can’t go through the door,
Open up that window, I can’t go through the door,
I’ve been thieving in the evening,
To a girl that I knew before.

Come back from the country, don’t you like me at all?
Come back from the country, don’t you like me at all?
You’ve been gone so long,
Why don’t you write me or call?

I doubled down on the devil one time, and I happened to win,
I doubled down on the devil another time and it happened again,
You say you’d rather be free,
I’d rather be back in the pen.

The way that it came, that’ll be the way that it goes,
The way that it came, that’ll be the way that it goes,
You say you want to be free,
I hate it it blows.

Open up that window, I can’t go through the door,
Open up that window, I can’t go through the door,
I’ve been thieving in the evening,
To a girl that I knew before.
