about

J.P. Whipple Portland, Oregon

J. P. Whipple is a barefoot vagabond whose errant rambles have taken him through the Great American West picking up songs along the side of the highways, in the mountain forests, the rivers, canyons and down broken alleyways. He grows them in small notebooks and when they mature he translates them through banjo, Dobro or accordion and then brings them to audiences throughout the US and Europe. ... more

Track Name: To Be Free
If you could sell your soul for one lump sum

would you cash in?

Would you take the money and run

and start over again?

Or would you settle for an installment plan

that lets you live comfortably?

Can you tell me the price you pay…

…to be free?



Would you pull out the plug

and sleep in the dirt?

Would you gather all that you love

and kick it to the curb?

Would you shut off all the lights

so you could finally see?

Can you tell me the price you pay…

…to be free?



Would you stray from the path

and make a wrong turn?

Would you walk into the fire

and watch yourself burn?

Would you lay naked with your fears

and let her be?

Can you tell me the price you pay…

…to be free?

The taste will lift you higher

Might sour but the Scriptures never expire

heavenly Bible Milk



See it pour down like Heaven

into your cereal bowl

Scriptures on the carton

elevate your soul

Take it with your coffee

Take it with your tea

Only the taste of sweet Bible Milk

is gonna set you free.

You can forget the rest.

Look for the flavor of Bible Milk

The only carton that's been blessed.

Track Name: Chain Drinker
When I was young I was flying so high

My future was as bright as a Fourth of July

Now I'm feeling just like a dud

All four wheels spinning going nowhere in the mud

Don't know how I got caught in this rut

I might be able to get out but not with this beer gut

Because I'm a chain drinker

Problem smoker

and I can ‘t seem to get my shit together

I'm loose walker

a tight rope talker

and it all comes out wrong so whatever

I'm just looking for a clue

but I can't get there without you.



She left me feeling just like a jerk

She said “I don't know what this is but it don't work”

So I went to the bar and I got in a fight

Them boys didn't care that I was right

So I busted a rib and I lost a tooth

but it always hurts when you speak the truth

Because I'm a chain drinker….



The dishes pile up in the sink

The whole damn mess just makes me think

about how I bust my ass every day

just so the lawyers and the landlord can take my pay

Sometimes I feel like I am going down

but I always get back up for another round.

Because I'm a chain drinker…
Track Name: Stick With Me
Stick with me, babe!

Stick with me, baby!

I know that your parents think I'm bad news

I'm so lost I can't find my shoes

but one of these days I'm gonna be a star

with a big old house and a well stocked bar



Stick with me, babe!

Stick with me, baby!

I know I don't have realistic goals

My clothes are all rags. My pockets are full of holes.

But accordion music is going to come back in style

though I admit it might take awhile.



Stick with me, babe!

Stick with me, baby!

I know my friends are all worthless drunks

I come home so wasted I can't work my junk

but we're all geniuses we're just misunderstood

We'd be famous already if we weren't so damn good.



Yeah Stick with me….
Track Name: Cold Rain
Take me away tonight

The sun is not coming up

Last call is not enough

to get me there….



All night diner won't fill this hole

Black coffee won't soothe the soul

and I just can't let go

of you…



Through the alleys with my broken memories

Crumpled up and tossed away

I don't know what I would say

if I found you there…



Now there's no one left around

The night is closing down

on me



So I walk these streets three sheets to the wind and the rain.



I won't see her again

I won't see her again…



Take me away tonight

The sun is not coming up

The sun is not coming up this morning

it is only cold rain coming down….
Track Name: Brave New World
it's a brave new world but i'm feeling yellow

it's a brave new world but i'm feeling yellow
get so dizzy running which way the wind blows

there ain't no place left to hide - the eye is everywhere
there ain't no place left to hide - the eye is everywhere
you know they can find you and they can make you disappear

you can't dodge the raindrops - you can't fight the wind
you can't dodge the rain - you can't fight the wind
the sky is getting black and the ground is tremblin'

went atop the mountain - found my lover waiting there
went atop the mountain - found my lover waiting there
she said, "i'm glad you found me", then she vanished into the air

the nights are cold - the air is dark and still
the nights are cold - the air is dark and still
when the lights go out, babe, you have no one but yourself....
Track Name: Jesus in a Pancake
She found the face of Jesus in her Pancake

At the Waffle House on the interstate

And she felt the presence of the divine



Made by a cook named Jesus

Served by a waittress named Marilou

Surely it has to be a sign



All the patrons gathered ‘round to see

She took a picture with her cellphone to give to her brother Steve

Who doesn't believe



She found the face of Jesus in her pancake

Smiling at her from a plate

And He gave her fame throughout the land



Everywhere they went they drew a crowd

She had never been so proud

A handsome cowboy from Texas asked for her hand



The reporters came and camped on her lawn

An unknown country singer went platinum when he wrote her a song

That was way too long….



She found the face of Jesus in her pancake

She would never lose her faith

He put her in a state of grace







Then His image began to fade

He put Him in the freezer but it was too late

And we could no longer make out the face



And all the non-believers started in on her with their hate

They called her ignorant, a fraud, and overweight

Which she couldn't debate….



She found the face of Jesus in her pancake

And He gave her instant fame

But soon we were all just moving on



They shunned her at the Wal-Mart

The handsome cowboy broke her heart

Oh how she cried when he was gone.



The reporters packed and left the next day

They found out Jesus was illegal and wanted to hear what he had to say

Before they took him away…



She found the face of Jesus in her pancake

At the Waffle House on the insterstate

But if you asked me now, I couldn't tell you her name.
Track Name: Too Good for Me
If I laid my coat in the rain

would you watch my hopes go down the drain?

If I laid rose pedals at your feet

would you still walk all over me?



‘Cause when I make you laugh you only make me cry

When I say hello you always say goodbye

If only I could make you see

I'd be good for you if you weren't…

…too good for me.



If I wrote a poem for you each day

Would you crumple them up and throw them away

If I wrote a song just for you dear

would you turn up your iPod until you couldn't hear



‘Cause when I make you laugh you only make me cry

When I say hello you always say goodbye

If only I could make you see

I'd be good for you if you weren't…

…too good for me.
Track Name: One More Song
I had one more song I was going to put on the album

it would make the surly men smile

lonely women cum

and turn terrorists to hippies

and they'll throw away their bombs

the tyrants broke down crying

sent flowers to their moms

because of my new song…



And jesus came from heaven just to sing along

he gathered all the preachers and told them they were wrong

he united the world everyone got involved

the governments got together and the problems were solved

because of my new song…



We declared a holiday and everything was free

we all went outside and planted a tree

we gave up our fear and gave up our rage

the jails and the zoos opened every cage

because of my new song



And my new song

was going to make me a star

I was about to sing it to you

but a tweaker stole my guitar
Track Name: Paycheck Blues
Another week of busting ass

for just a little cash

and I just missed my bus

he left me sitting in the dust

so I walk through polluted snow

where the tweakers come to bum my smokes

beer just went up another dollar

at my favorite happy hour

I just got my week's pay

but I spent it all yesterday

I got paid now I'm broke!

As a joke that ain't funny

she took all my money

but, hell, that's ok

she left me yesterday

and found a new sugar daddy

who rolls in a great big caddy

and all I got is this brown bag

and my favorite fucking porno mag

I got paid now I'm broke

I want more……

BUT I GOT TO PAY MY PHONE BILL

GAS BILL

ELECTRIVC BILL

PAY FOR THE FOOD I EAT

A FAMILY PACK OF MAC AND CHEESE

THE WHOLE NEXT CHECK IS ALREADY SPENT

THE FUCKING THING GOES TO THE RENT

AND MY SOCIAL SECURITY

YOU KNOW THERE'LL BE NONE LEFT FOR ME

I GOT PAID NOW I'M BROKE!
