Songs recorded in Jillette's bedroom


released February 14, 2009

Jillette, Stephen and Hutto




The Torches Washington

The Torches were cobbled together by Stephen J. Perron Guidry in the late winter of 2009 and are a ramshackle and revolving group that includes banjo, oboe, harmonica, cello, fiddle, several-part vocal harmony and cacophony, as well as some hollering and stomping.

The Torches played their first show without ever having all been in the same room at once.

Track Name: My Former Baby Mine ["studio" rough]
My baby wants a rose
From every ex she knows
Is thinkin' 'bout her on Saint
Valentine's Day.

But I am such a mess
(I) Misplaced her address.
So former baby, mine
Don't expect no flowers...from me.

At parties on your arm
Candy to sweeten your charms
But now I'm just a bit
Too sour for that.

No nights out any more
Now that I know the score
So former baby, mine
Don't expect no sugar...from me.

What was that song you wrote
Bout a man whose heart you broke
Who wrote a song that was
All about you?

But I am not so daft
Can't get past a second draft
So former baby mine
Don't expect no verses... from me.

My baby wants to send
Her ashes to every friend
In remembrance of herself
When she is gone.

But I know what I am
A sentimental man
So former baby mine
Please don't send those me.
