lyrics

Verse 1:
It crawls like a cobra ‘cross the desert plains
Creeps through the valley like a lion to tame
It’s the serpent inside, puts envy in your eyes
Like lookin’ for bigger diamonds to shine

Verse 2:
Never know when the shadows will trail you from behind
Turn you ‘to a stranger with a criminal mind
Who takes you by the hand, leads you to the other side
Where all the lotus eaters are drinkin’ that poison wine

Chorus:
Poison wine
Goes down easy
Poison grapes from a poison vine
It’s a bitch’s brew that’ll rob you blind
That poison wine

Verse 3:
It’s a wicked world of wolves and thieves
Angels and demons just plotting their schemes
Lookin’ for the fastest way to dig up the baron’s gold
They’d leave you blacklisted with no where to roam

Chorus:
Poison wine
Goes down easy
Poison grapes from a poison vine
It’s a bitch’s brew that’ll rob you blind
That poison wine

Verse 4:
The sun rises in the East and goes down where it feels
That darkness from behind, just two steps from your heals
That devil within’ he’d watch you drown
As your drinkin’ a jug that mortal sin

Chorus:
Poison wine
Goes down easy
Poison grapes from a poison vine
It’s a bitch’s brew that’ll rob you blind
That poison wine

about

Art Vandalay St Paul, Minnesota

Art Vandalay delivers a rich sound that sways and swaggers with an understated bravado. Not only does the core trio lay down their rootsy groove, but adding to the magic is local guitarist Colin Monette whose reverb soaked guitars and Chris Horgan’s sea-shanty accordion brings a whole new flavor to Art Vandalay’s distinctive sound that the Duluth News-Tribune calls "impossibly catch." ... more
