No Lesson Too Late

from Unkept Woman by Vanessa Boyd

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Unkept Woman comes with a fold-out insert panel with all the lyrics on it. The artwork is all inspired by the crossover between life in Morocco, where most of the album was written, and Tennessee, where it was recorded.

    While riding through the Sahara Desert on a camel, we crossed a dune and there, cocky as if he was born there, was a solitary rooster puttering around the sand. I took a photo which is completely blurry, with the movement of the camel and all, but when I got home I took a picture of my mother's rooster in his stead. This became the cover. The 3-panel spread is a collage of all the musicians who were an integral part of the record.

    This CD was manufactured & printed in the US by Cravedog with a glass master for high quality.

    Also includes immediate download of 14-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

no lesson too late
hey mama, i’ve done some crazy things in the past, i’m sure as a mother you’ve already guessed the half : i think of the times when i traveled alone, sleeping at night by the side of the road : well you can never learn a lesson too late, even if you learn it the minute before you die, even as your life flashes before your eyes : hello daddy, i know you told me to come on now, come on home, find a man, set up camp and settle down : well don’t you worry it none, i’m working on, taking it easy, taking one at a time : chorus : hey little sister, you tell me you’re getting married, you say with all the conviction an 18 yr old can muster : you say to me, you’re ready
