about

Drover Shy Los Angeles, California

Drover shy is an acoustic-folk duo from nowhere in particular, currently based out of the great and terrible sprawl of Los Angeles. Drover shy’s music is characterized by visceral storytelling and strong acoustic guitar-driven rhythms. Influenced by the nature's haunt, the workers toil, and the darker side of human proclivities, their music is sharp, catchy, and quietly eerie. ... more

Track Name: Blackbird
Blackbird

oh blackbird, sitting high up in that ledge

leave your perch and walk with me instead

i’ve been rambling so long



oh blackbird, i’ve been looking for the well

harried my thirst, i fear my feet will fail

don’t know where the road went so wrong



won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me

i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing



oh blackbird, sitting high up in that tree

from my birth, i’ve been growing up in grief

surely, you can’t be so cold



give my word, you wouldn’t become prey

skin for skin, can be the only way

hollow, the breath taken in boast



won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me

i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing



oh blackbird (oh blackbird), my blackbird (my blackbird)



won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me

i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing



i’ve been turned round, the shadows look the same. believe me

i can’t be alone now, i hear the forest, hear it weeping
Track Name: Fox and his Folk
Fox and his Folk

There in the holler below. Lived a fox with his folk. They had found shelter from the snow.

The youngest one cried. Take us back to the valley. For when we were there, we could still see our enemies.


Wish I could end this sorrow, wipe the blood from your coat. Fill your boots up with hope.

Just know this all could end tomorrow. There's a chance that it won't. But we won't be alone.


For shame. Why should we cower beneath? Have we not wit and our teeth? We would not go down so easily!

My dear, we've barely stopped bleeding. How would fare, fighting the horrors never seen.


Wish I could end this sorrow, wipe the blood from your coat. Fill your boots up with hope

Just know this all could end tomorrow. Though it probably won't. But we won't be alone.


Snow keeps falling. Footprints scrawl our names.

Caterwauling. Our voices sound the same.


Wish I could end this sorrow, wipe the blood from your coat. Fill your boots up with hope

Just know this all could end tomorrow. No it probably won't. But we won't be alone.

Wish I could end this sorrow, wipe the blood from your coat. Fill your boots up with hope.

Just know, if we don't see tomorrow. Know I loved you the most. And we won't be Alone.
Track Name: River Song
River


Wandering in the river. Soon the water will rise.

Trying to remember all the blue in your eyes.

Pinewoods line the banks here where our blood used to lie.

Washed into the current, with your silent goodbye.



Met you by the stone bridge where creek crept along.

Told me you were darker than you'd ever let on.

Told me that music gave you strength to belong.

I was just a chorus darling you were my song.


Call me lonesome, I'm so tired without you by my side. I'll give way to the pull and to the by and by.

So loathsome is this fight. I hope I'll find you sooner somewhere on the other side.


Just beneath the surface I can scarce hear your voice.

Try to draw it closer with rivers white noise.

I can see your face dear. Feel your trace and your joys.

How can I go further when you've left me no choice.


Still I can't but wonder if you'd beckon me on.

You were stolen from me, stolen right from my arms.

Crawl out of the river. Though I want to belong.

I am just a chorus but I'll still sing your song.
