lyrics

I have no memory
Of my family
Without my sisters
There beside me
We sang proudly for our father
I was leader, the eldest daughter

Eldest daughter, older sister
Daddy’s little war-resister
I’ve worked hard, but never harder
For the esteem of my dear father

My dear father, smooth operator
A skilled and cunning troublemaker
My mother’s protests met with refusal
Left us wanting for his approval

He was California bound
He was California bound
Still feel the sting of his absence now
He was California bound

about

Clare O'Connor & Corbin Murdoch Vancouver, British Columbia

Equal parts earnest and incisive, Work Songs is an album by Clare O'Connor and Corbin Murdoch. Originally composed for the theatre, it is a song-cycle that asks what we can salvage from personal loss and political despair.
