Tony Harrah Blues “Sweet Lucinda” – Listen

Sweet Lucinda‘ is the lead single from Tony Harrah’s new album ‘Unicorns‘, and focuses on farming desperation.  Not just crop failures or droughts – the desperation here is that of separating from a wife, the pointlessness of going on with all the effort when the one you love has gone off with another.  As ‘Sweet Lucinda‘ unfolds there are dashes of desperation in the lyrics – “Sweet Lucinda, it’s like your heart controls the rain“.
