David Wilcox – East Asheville Hardware lyrics

From East Asheville Hardware
..............................................

An angel appeared
In a holy vision
Stood by my bedside
In shivering light
Spoke my name
Told me my mission
I could not believe I was hearing him right
Because he said, 'Go, my son, go...

Always go to East Asheville Hardware
Before you go to Lowe's

He said, "Go to East Asheville Hardware
Before you go to Lowe's

You'll help to keep them open
I'm worried they might close
From the stiff competition
From the national conglomerate
With the full page ad
In the color section of the Sunday paper supplement
And stacks of plastic swimming pools
And seven brands of power tools
And rows and rows of registers
All having nice days

But no, you go, he said to me with light around his face
He said, You go first to that age-old place
To that old wooden door
That you have to close behind you
To the wide-board wooden floor
Worn down soft

To the real thing
Good advice, quality at a fair price
And know that they know how deep the frost goes here.

Sure there's stuff you'll have to find at Paty's, Lowe's or Sears

But go to East Asheville Hardware
Go to East Asheville Hardware
Before it disappears.
