lyrics

Hattie Barlow, like the knife blade
Sharpens when she draws across a stone
Blood and thunder tear asunder
Clean the marrow from the bone
Clean the marrow from the bone

She's a master haberdasher
She can sew herself to anybody's side
In the lowlands, in the quicksand
She's the apple of my eye
She's the apple of my eye

She steps into the fire and her body is impervious to flame
A rose is still a rose and Hattie's Hattie if she goes
And calls herself by any other name

Like a jigsaw on a seesaw
When she gets a belly full of bootleg wine
How I miss her sweet elixir
I think about my Hattie all the time
I think about my Hattie all the time

She steps into the fire and her body is impervious to flame
A rose is still a rose and Hattie's Hattie if she goes
And calls herself by any other name

If you don't know Hattie Barlow
You can tell her by the saunter in her stride
But if you see her, don't believe her
She can hide a thousand years behind her eyes
And live a thousand years with that disguise

She steps into the fire and her body is impervious to flame
A rose is still a rose and Hattie's Hattie even if she goes
And calls herself by any other body's name

Since their start in 2012, Jack Hotel has proven itself one of the best, and most original, folk acts in the midwest. ... more
