Newsom, Joanna - Erin Lyrics




Erin, Erin, Erin!
Errin' across America

Do now cheer me on
Can you hear the song for you?

Quick, now, caramel dip
Give it up to the runaway ship
Hail, now, hail to the bitch
The hairy literary with the nervous, nervous twitch

Shy, your light pops out
And we stand there astounded
And we pound our heads and shout
We shout 'alleluia'
Well, look what it did to ya

Oh, a horrible mess
And we're eatin' by the river in the sunday dress
Oh, serenade me
Eatin' the biscuits and gravy

You are missin' from me
As you juggle with your uncle in the red, red sea
I will wait, or will
Knock my knees and talk, you oh so still

Oh, Shenandoah
We just crossed the wide Missouri
You are so...
Bonny, shhhhhh, do not worry

Quick, now, caramel dip
Give it up to the runaway ship
Life's so sweet and so low
Buried in the water, yeah, buried in the snow

So dear, deep and so dark
Sleepin' under papers in the central park

Twentieth floor balcony houses what is home to me
Twentieth floor balcony houses what is home to me
Twentieth floor balcony houses what is home to me

    automatic tears with this one for me. Just so beautiful

  2. Weyes Noir

    Erin, Erin, Erin!
    Erin across America

    Do now cheer me on
    Can't you hear the song for you?

    Quick, now — caramel dip
    Give it up to the runaway ship

    Hail, now — hail to the bitch
    The hairy literary with the nervous, nervous twitch

    Shy, your light pops out
    And we stand there astounded
    And we pound our heads and shout

    We shout halleluja
    Look what it did to ya

    Oh, a horrible mess
    And we're eating by the river in the sunday dress

    Oh, serenade me
    Eatin' my biscuits and gravy

    You are missing from me
    As you juggle with your uncle in the red Red Sea

    I will wait, or will
    Knock my knees and talk to you, oh so still

    Oh Shenandoah
    We just across the wide Missouri
    You are so bonny shhhh do not worry

    Quick, now — caramel dip
    Give it up to the runaway ship

    Life's so sweet and so low
    Buried in the water, yeah, buried in the snow

    So dear, deep and so dark
    Sleeping under papers in the central park

    Twentieth floor balcony
    Houses what is home to me
    Twentieth floor balcony
    Houses what is home for me
    Twentieth floor balcony
    Houses what is home to me

  3. official clown business

    Her voice is almost as annoying as auto tune.

    Em Flanagan

    Let me guess—you exclusively listen to Aerosmith/acdc.

  5. Obstipatio Mentalis

    why is there no live performance of this song on youtube?

    Hayden McGowan

    I don't think she performs it anymore.

  6. america1888

    Extremely sensual and melancholy! "Erin" represents central US and Midwest.

    regan garizurieta

    erin represents Aerial. my counterpart angel

  7. Erin Jayne

    Ughh......

  8. étoile noire

    Joanna said she doesn't perform songs that she no longer feels the conviction behind, and that is why some songs appear on multiple early recordings and some do not. I assume that means Erin lost her interest before Milkeyed Mender was recorded.

  9. MusicalsNerd

    Meeee toooo! But it's spelt Eryn. I like this song :)

  10. Deborah Elaine Gardner

    Joanna Newsom really sings - her voice is incredibly silky smooth! I prefer the Joanna Newsom against the Lady Gaga at all times.

  11. rodriogq

    it just won't play for me! what's happening? ):

  12. Valtari

    It was just natural back then when she was younger. Her voice is a lot different now due to a surgery she had to get. At least I think that's what happened.

    saint escapism

    She had vocal nodules removed but also started seeing a voice teacher so she wouldn't develop them again. 6 years late but there's the answer lol

  13. jjoeshaw

    Why does she have such a strange vocal style?!

    008Invisibleman

    cuz she's a fcking genius

  14. erin viola

    @Eirinn967
    heyyyyy me too!!!!

  15. Eirinn967

    my names erin! :D

  16. elfin

    I love this song! If she re-recorded this on some future album, I would just die from joy... *o*

  17. MaryJo McCormic

    How beautiful! I love her

  18. Spot Light

    @Stormith If you don't like Joanna's earlier work, you might like her most recent album, Have One On Me.. her voice is more developed and less squeaky.. I love all her work, so it's all the same to me. :)

  19. Harlem

    @Stormith Cool story bro

  20. ullie

    Her voice is fucking annoying. BTW my name is Erin.

  21. Sara Cruz

    This is my new favorite JN song. They're all my favorite, but I'm partial to this one. I love her voice! I hope she goes back to this style, her wisper-singing off her new album is nice, but this is more "signature" Joanna. I want to meet her so badly! BIGGEST FAN. LOVEEE HEEERRR!!!!!!! :D

  22. Banged Minsoo

    -Such a good song. I love joanna. She is so beautiful:) her harp just adds to the beauty

  23. RepublicanVampire

    i love the part from 2:54 - 3:16. but you can't really hear those bass notes that well, unless you have good speakers or headphones

  24. RepublicanVampire

    @erins68 it takes some getting used to

  25. Ymzo58

    @erins68 well, i guess thats her charm and her fall ya know what i mean??? D: lol

  26. Erin Sweeney

    don't like her she sounds like a little child

  27. koojean

    i heard this song on a Kwes mixtape a while ago; at first i thought it was a Björk song (Aurora) when the harp started, then i was really frustrated because i couldnt find who sang this song!! until today… im very happy :)

  28. midocrimsonfate

    I like this song
    &
    She's got a nice little body doesnt she lol
    Never noticed

  29. Angela Grace

    I could fall asleep on a rainy afternoon listening to her music. It's so soothing and surreal and fabulous. I love it.

  30. Pareeckle

    @sLoAnKeTeRlEn dont you mean great?

  31. Pareeckle

    i love this song opposed to others by newsom. it sounds so cute. and i think its just me, but i think her voice has a major contrast with the melody. but it seems to be so appropriate and i dont think there are many that can pull off that technique other then newsom. i wish i had the album.

  32. SrNetsWalker

    In my TOP 5 Joanna Newsom's songs probably in the TOP 3
    ♥♥♥♥♥

  33. berzerkrobot

    I agree and and then I accidently clicked thumbs down, instead of thumbs up! :(

  34. WheresPoochie

    Upbeat tune
