Sour Alley – Lavender Eyes lyrics

    I had stopped listening to music a good 3 months to avoid stealing other phrasings. One day at work I was talking with a person I work with who is from Brasil and remembered a movie about a great samba musician. So for 3 solid weeks I only listened to samba. On a spring day drive from McMinnville to Salem Oregon with the top off my 996, the phrase, "lavender eyes" popped up and I had a couple of idiot jazz chords lying about--and pooph. The best line is "lick the silk twilight off your eyes. . . " Although sea gulls screaming because their lovers have sand on their thighs is pretty fun too!
