now, brother george was a real person
george cashman
belleville, illinois
wore a long black trench coat and a big black hat
played the harp
on stage
with whatever band had the pleasure of being there that night
whether they liked it or not
brother george was there

i never met him
though neal and ryan had
bellevilllians both of 'em
belle villains

i had heard the legend of course
though i only knew the band
fine group of drunks we were, too
though never to the level of the man, brother george

someone may have got close

i wrote the tune down in guatemala in 2014
sitting on my bed, watching the mountains out the open door
wanted to mix the two together
the band and the man

also wanted to say our own band name in a song

thirty nine times



brother george is in my house
brother george can't get him out
with his music playin' loud
brother george is on my couch

brother george is on my mind
brother george all of the time
brother george drank all my wine
most unkind

i don't really know how long he's stayin'
and i can't understand a word he's sayin'
but that's alright 'cause i'm with

brother george

brother george won't leave me alone
leaves me hangin' on the telephone
brother george every day

i don't really know how long he's stayin'
we got dinner tonight
and i'm payin'
but that's alright 'cause i'm in love with

brother george
