What can I say, these things happen....


In the big town
Painted red and blue
There's some gangsters
Sent by me and you
They got fancy suits
And shiny shoes
And they don't care
About the job they're supposed to do
It's a circus act
That's a fact
'cause once they get there
They don't look back
They're the Little Kings

In the back room
Up the stairs
It's all quid pro quo
And laissez faire
Build a shipyard
Over there
Skim the profits
And give it to the millionaires
Shut down the halls
And paint the walls
With the blood of the common man
They're the Little Kings

Pennies for your dreams
Billions for their schemes
Nothing's as it seems

Your assurance
From the hill
Each step forward
Leaves you standing still
They move up
We go downhill
Death by friendly fire
An appropriation bill
Lies and fraud
From men of straw
Out of reach
And above the law
They're the Little Kings

RS Cain Versailles, Kentucky

I'm a guitarist, singer, and songwriter from central Kentucky.
My music is a mix of many different influences; from the country and western I heard as a child to some stuff I heard yesterday.
I write songs primarily to make you shake your money maker. I'm not deep, and I'm certainly no virtuoso. I just want you to have a good time.
