Brent Amaker and the Rodeo - Thanksgiving song of the year

Troubled Times, by Brent Amaker and the Rodeo

Troubled times on the horizon
The Watchman keeps his eyes on you
It ain’t my place to say
But things can’t always go your way

Give thanks for what you got
Eat all that’s on your plate
‘Cause troubled times might come today

As darkness falls upon you
You’ll find the pain won’t go away
Nothin’ hurts so bad
as losin’ what you thought you had

Give thanks for what you got
Eat all that’s on your plate
‘Cause troubled times might come today

The band’s description of themselves from their website:

From desolate deserts to snow washed mountains Brent Amaker and The Rodeo have been searching for the Truth. This pursuit has produced numerous albums and taken them to venues across the world, in spotless matching threads, to perform their songs for a dedicated cult following.

Their sound, which could aptly be described as a Morricone soundtrack written by Kraftwerk with dead serious classic country vocals, has garnered them placement in television shows such as “Weeds” [YouTube] and “Califonication”.

In 2013 Brent Amaker and The Rodeo [released] their … full length Year Of The Dragon [that’s a link to the full album]. The album’s 13 all new tracks take square aim at Truth – to spill a weathered wisdom across the current musical landscape. The album also features original cover artwork by Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki.
