    Compact Disc (CD)

    This is our fiery new album, released on August 12, 2014. It's made up of ten original blues songs inspired by the great roots musicians of the early 1900s and by the hypnotic riff-and-rhythm emphasis of northern Mississippi hill country music. With bulletproof loyalty and with much love.

about

Ripe Red Apple

Ripe Red Apple is about passion. We thank the apple of sin every day for our beautiful lives of love, lust, curiosity, solitude and sorrow. Formed in Valparaíso, Chile and based now in Portland, Oregon, this band was made for self-release and honest expression, not made to please. ... more

Track Name: You Know
You know I cared for you
With the chickens in the pantry too
Ohh and the fox outside,
With mama in bed and daddy dyin'
Oh what you want to do? You know baby I'll care for you
Oh what you want to do? You know baby I'll care for you

You know I'll care for you
With the wind rushin' and the fire too
Burnin' wood upon the ground
Leaf shaped ash fallin', not a sound
Oh what you want to do? You know baby I'll care for you
Oh what you want to do? You know baby I'll care for you

Oh, you know I'll care lord for you!

You know I'll care for you
With frosty eyes and a heart too
Can't see a thing, can't sleep at night
Countin' my stars I'll hold ya tight
Oh what you want to do, with frosty eyes and a heart too?
Oh, what you want to do, you know baby I'll care for you
Oh, what you want to do, you know baby I'll care for you

Oh what you wanna dooo, baaabe?
Track Name: Threw Away My Toys
When she came my way my friends, I did not have a choice.
When she came my way my friends, I ran to play with the boys.
When she came my way my friends, I had to wipe my nose.
When she came my way my friends, I could not use my voice.

When she came my way, I did not want to stay.

When she came my way my friends, I had to run and hide.
When she came my way my friends, I threw away my pride.
Oh, into her arms I fell, I did not have a choice.
Then like a bird with broken wings I knew, and threw away my toys.

When she came my way, I had to stay.

When she came my way my friends, I had to run and hide.
When she came my way my friends, I grabbed her skirt and cried.
But into her arms I fell, I did not have a choice.
Then like a bird with broken wings I knew, and threw away my toys.
Track Name: Black Cat
Black cat
Lookin’ at
My black soul
You know I love you
Bad luck baby

Take you with me
To make sure
That I don't get too
Much and start to
Worry
Or lose
My head and
Think I'm somethin'

solo

My black cat,
My black baby
When I met you,
I was a child
When I met you
We were wild
And I tamed you
And you tamed me

Black cat
Lookin at
My black soul
You know I love you
Bad luck baby

You know I love you
My bad luck baby
Track Name: Baby Jane

Well “Fim!” said da big fiss, “and I’ll fim too,”

Mmmm, mama said, “Baby Jane come down to rest.
' Come down da road, with nuthin to bring,
' Come down the way, gonna stay, stay stay.”

Oooo baby Jane went up to the sky,
Ooo baby Jaaaaane.

Down in da meddy in da uddy uddy bue
Was a big mama fissy and a wittle fissy too
Well “Fim!” said da big fissy “and I’ll fim too”
so dey fam and dey fam in da uddy uddy bue

Mmmm, mama said,
“Baby Jane come down to rest
Come down from the sky
Without her wings
Come down the way
Gonna stay, stay, stay.”

Gonna stay stay, stay stay.
Oooo baby Jane. Oooo baby Jane.
Track Name: Ode to the Serpent
I picked the apple from the tree.
Lust, passion, are best friends to me.
I would much rather be free
Than die having obeyed thee.

The winds are cold, the fire's hot!
Yes we are naked, yes we fuck a lot.
Well god wanted us to blindly obey,
But for knowledge, thank our apple every day.

Well pack our things, we'll get out of here;
I can feel, the winter's near.
We'll take the serpent, he'll guide our way.
Don't worry baby, 'cause nothin’ stays...
Track Name: Doesn't Pass Me By
When my baby left me, you know, I started to cry.
Got my broken shoes, all hid in lies.
Lost control, one more time, of my broken life.
Freedom is the only thing that don't pass me by.

Dreams, well they come and go, and plans awry.
When my baby left me, you know, I started to cry.
Back to the earth I fell, no reasons why,
Tryin' hard to heal the pain, desire still mine.

Well freedom is the only thing that don't pass me by
When I lose everythin’ I got, no reasons why.
Plans, yeah, they come and go, and love and lies,
But when I fall back down to earth, freedom's at my side.
Freedom's at my side… mmm, time to lose, freedom's at my side.
Track Name: That River Run Long & Dry
You're not, that narrow,
Get dressed, I'm hauntin' your eyes.
You're my black railroad,
You're just made gone a-rye.

You're not that sparrow,
You’re sly and say alright.
But you're not my water,
Your river was made to dry.

Lad-ay, my marrow,
What hay you done tonight?
What's they black water,
Shine, hey, wade in the night.

My back bone railroad
My lad-ay shine a light
No doubt, she's haunted
Ba-bay do me outta my mind
Track Name: Outta Here
I don't care where ya goin', I've had enough down here.
I'm gonna catch the next ride and get on outta here.

I don't care what you're sayin', can't even hear ya no more.
I'll take those words you're sayin', bury them deep in the floor.

Well you can do what you'd like, girl, I'm leavin' you behind,
Yes you can do what you'd like, I'm leavin' you behind.

I don't care what you're thinking, I'm getting out of here,
Next train that's comin' lonesome, I'm gonna ride alone my dear.

I'm ridin' alone. I don't care where you're goin'.
Track Name: Tried to Make it Home
It don't matter but everything has come undone.
I'm thumbing my way to north Californ', I'm goin.
Oh mama, you know I tried to make it home.
Layin' out lucky tonight near Wilsonville,
Oo warm my face in the gray green frosty sunrise.
Oh mama ya know I tried to make it home
The stories on the road that folks confide,
And they don't ever cry. They say it'll be alright
Oh that it’ll be alright.
Oh that it’ll be alright.
Track Name: Mineral
Where you came from was a hell-sent torment.
Raised in the mine until you were ten.
Then you packed a sack and left,
Followin' a man's finger tip.

You thought the train was an animal roaring' in the sun,
But you found the door as your mother's first son.
Oh, how she looked at you.
Oh, how we cried.

Well look how the minerals change
With some time. There ain't no shame.
Mmm water and wind. Mmm earth and flame.
Mmm with a lack of love, mmm the same game.
