"Suddenly in Waterdown" written and performed by Rob Lamothe (Warner Chappell Music International/ASCAP) recorded live at Java Joe's, San Diego, California, USA 01/21/01

lyrics

i am lazaurus jones
skin like molasses
seventh generation
a long line a' bad asses
bootlegger with a trunkful of cocaine
and rose-colored glasses

i'm standin by the ocean
where my life begins
i could carry this weight
i could throw it in

do the easy thing
safe inside my head
sleep in trouble's bed

cigarettes and rocket launchers
give leonard cohen his crack cocaine
minding my soul and takin care of business
last night i wrote a song i'll never sing...

181 kilometers south of the mexican border
salsupuedes is a rock... and i'm just a ship under the water
and this girl sleepin on the beach
well she might be my daughter...

i'm standin by the ocean
where my life begins
i could carry this weight
i could throw it in

do the easy thing
safe inside my head
i will sleep in trouble's bed
sleep in trouble's bed

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
