about

Rachel Taylor Brown Portland, Oregon

Rachel was born and lives in Portland with her beloved husband Jay and makes disturbing yet ultimately sensible songs you can sometimes dance to.

She sees loads of ugly and beauty in the world. Trying to capture that sweet and sour thing in a song is what she’s mostly trying to do.

She records with audio midwife and dear friend Jeff Stuart Saltzman and his cats.

Thanks for stopping by!

Track Name: We'll Have A
WE'LL HAVE A
The world is so frightening, there's never enough
The world is so frightening for me and my love
There's no one to comfort you, no one to care
There's only this want and my pitiful share

So let's have a family!
We'll have a family
Let's have a baby
We'll have a baby

It didn't turn out like they told me it would
My parents were sure I was 'specially good
Where is my victory? Where my reward?
Where is the kingdom where I would be Lord?

Let's make a family!
We'll make a family
Let's make a baby
We'll make a baby

Let's have a family
A big happy family
Let's have a baby
A fat happy baby
Track Name: Mt. Athos
MT. ATHOS
I'm trying to get to heaven, but there's a woman in the way
There's a woman in the way of men on their way

I'm trying to get to Jesus, but there's a woman in the way
There's a woman in the way of men on their way

I'm trying to get to Allah but there's a woman in the way
There's a woman in the way of men on their way

I'm trying to get to Buddah but there's a woman in the way
There's a woman in the way of men on their way
Hey
Track Name: Robin
ROBIN
Run little robin from the nest on down
Past the sycamore and o'er the tether
Run little robin til you're on the ground
Run run run until your wings are better

Run little robin from your happy home
Sister Suzy and your pa and mother
Run little robin don't you tell no one
Tell nobody what we tell eachother

One wing cut for the little white lie
Clip clip, oh you little lonesome feather
Two wing scissored for the alibi
Now you're always gonna feel the weather

Sing little robin from your lonely tree
Make it pretty like you hear on Sunday
Sing little robin for only me
I love you, and we will leave here one day
Track Name: Trade
I gave up my hands to save a girl on fire
So I can't do most anything I'm meant to
I can't hold a hammer like I used to
I can't make a cradle or a chair
But I can look for her and she is there
Track Name: Little Fucker
Little Fucker, you go around fucking people over
Little Fucker, you're on the town fucking people over
You've got a lot to go around
You've got a lot to go around
You've got a lot to go around

Little Fucker, you're always there fucking people over
Little Fucker, oh have a care fucking people over
There's such a lot to go around
There's such a lot to go around
There's such a lot to go around

Little Fucker says, oh what a world! fucking people over
Little Fucker says, i'm just a girl fucking people over
There's such a lot to go around
There's such a lot to go around
There's such a lot to go around
Track Name: Me Hurting You
You know you're only human if you made a mistake
You're nothing if you never give a brother a break
You hope you can forget the awful things that you said
You wish that you'd been better when you're on your deathbed

I couldn't help it that I saw my destiny there
Believe me when I tell you I tried not to care
The heart wants what it wants and I'm a romantic too
You'll never know how hard it was for me, hurting you

There's something so religious in the way that I feel
There's Jesus in my step and glory, oh, in my heel!
I never really knew it, this is what we are for
I'm sorry you don't want to be friends anymore

I hope that you can find it to forgive me one day
I think of you a little til I will it away
The heart wants what it wants and what the hell can you do?
You'll never know how hard it was for me, hurting you

Track Name: Family
Family--you were so good to me
I had to run away from
Family--oh no don't run after me
Like I know you wanna

[Jack and Jill went up the hill
Jill came tumbling down]

Family--you were so good to me
You say I broke it all, the
Family--I know it was bad of me
What a prima donna

[Let's all gather 'round the plow!
Unity, unity, join the community]
Track Name: Men in War
The things we say to men in war to keep them moving forward
The world will never be the same if you do not go warward
For mother and for liberty, for truth and hope defending
Your sacrifice will ever be, for us, our happy ending

Be brave and make us proud of you
Behave the way we taught you to
When you were just a little boy
You cried just like a girl

The things we say to men in war to keep them in the fighting
The wrongs in all the dreadful world need you to do the righting
For mother and for liberty, for sister and for neighbor
For everything that we hold dear, you do this dirty labor

Be brave and make us proud of you
Behave the way we taught you to
When you were just a little boy
You cried just like a girl
Track Name: One Brave Soul
All I need is that one brave soul, who'll be kind
I am sure that's all it takes,
Is one small word, I know
From one brave soul
