about

'She was my lucky charm,
She used to hold my arm…'

Another hard luck story from the Bard of VoodooVille

Like the hapless coyote of his namesake, Wily Bo spins a yarn, another fable from his 'Moonshine Diaries'

Here hangs a tale of a luckless loser's lost love…

'Seven years of bad luck
Seven years of pain…'

Wily Bo Walker & E D Brayshaw riff on a foot-stompin' porch tale with resonators, mandolin and acoustic energy. A popular rootsy track from their whisky fuelled 'live' shows…
