about

New Wasp Summer demo, first previewed live in October 2014. Subtitled "If I die in Juárez" and written, after reading extensive and brave frontline journalism, about women surviving in dangerous situations.

This demo includes lines from "I Never Will Marry", a traditional song which I first heard by Linda Ronstadt and Dolly Parton.

lyrics

And if I die tonight
Lay out my red shoes. I will be out
Riding down the moon

I've walked to the factory
Pushing through the men and past their dark sedans
However fast they drew
Still, I knew, to be faithful
Just to me

Give a little, not too much from desperation
Give just a word or two
And though they seem like tough, unjust years
They can be pulled through

And if I die tonight
Lay out my red shoes. I will be out
Riding down the moon

He kicked in my door tonight
No, this was the last time.
I stoved in his head with his iron crow.
Living's by choice, I suppose
But the other here is rarely so

They washed my matted hair
But they won't get me medication
Workhouse Fever Blues
I'm a piece of lost property without a claimant
Jail would be more secure

I never will marry
I'll never be no man's wife
There's many a change in a young man's heart
But never a change in mine

Show a little, not too much

And if I die tonight
Lay out my red shoes. I will be out
Riding down the moon
