Song Description

A bad murderous man named Redbone is on the run and the Sheriff is using a blood hound named Redbone to chase him down. The man is caught and justice is done.

Story Behind the Song

When I was a boy we would hunt with bloodhounds. I was watching Brother Where art thou? the scene of the hounds inspired me. I liked the word play of having both the protagonist and the villain having the same name. The poem came first The music came from the chant quality of the lyrics.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I like this song a lot. I like the sound of the group and think the blues harp really works well with the guitars. About the only observation I have about the instruments is that I would like to hear the bass more. I thought it got lost in the mix.

good simple rhythm and some cool harp make this song.
liked the style and ole skool feel to this blues track

My Red Bone riding on the warm wind
Red Bone howling at the moon beams
Red Bone sniffin' out the bad man
Sam Red Bone hanging from an old oak tree

A nightmare came out the darkness
The willows weeping cause the witness
That deed surely evil with the madness
Leave behind a life full of sadness

My Red Bone running on the warm night
Red Bone howling in the moonlight
My Red Bone nosing out that bad man
Sam Red Bone hanging from an old oak tree

The story hidden in the blood stains
Lost dreams they never gonna gain again
Sam Red Bone climbed on a freight train
The track laid for a man gone insane

But my Red Bone is one with the warm wind
Red Bone howling up at the moon beams
Red Bone done chased down that bad man
Sam Red Bone got his neck stretched yeah
in an old oak tree

Justice here done in the darkness
Sam judged swinging from a oak tree
No more bad deeds in the midnight

Red Bone We chased him down in the midnight
Red Bone We chased him down and made it all right
(Repeat out)
