about

Angela James Chicago, Illinois

Angela James’ music brings to mind the rich, deep voices of artists like Patsy Cline and Rosanne Cash with the narrative sensibility of more modern female troubadours like Neko Case and Cat Power. Traditional and hip, artful and sometimes avant-garde, her songs come from a place far more youthful and inquisitive than most people might think. ... more

Track Name: Drink and Try Not to Cry
It's alright, another night with a glass glued to my hand
Never knowing, never caring where I land
Never fear, I'm in the clear
Let's take a shot then have a beer
One more round for every one of us in here
So I'll drink and try not to cry tonight
Cause whiskey never did me wrong
And I'll make my bed at the bottom of a bottle
And sleep like a baby tonight
I feel fine, must be the wine
It went straight to my head
Now I don't know and I don't care what you said
I don't know where I'll go
When I wake up and I find
Another day, another devil is on my mind
So I'll drink and I'll try not to cry tonight
Cause whiskey never did me wrong
And I'll make my bed at the bottom of a bottle
And sleep like a baby tonight
Yes I'll make my bed at the bottom of a bottle
And won't think of my baby tonight
