Well, good morning to you everybody Well, good morning and thank you for being here Me, I’m Jefferson Noizet My bag’s filled up with songs There’s some folk, blues and even country I was born one day on the banks of the Garonne But I know there was a misunderstanding The stork made a mistake For she didn’t lodge me In the land of Robert Johnson I remember my dad shouting at the end of each month When the tobacco jar was out of cash And he always told me, son Don’t ever go to a boss-man But go where your footsteps lead you When people ask me what I’m doing down here I reply I’m making simple music I sow seeds of plain words And sometimes, sometimes I get harvest © 2010 Sacem
The other evening, on TV around 8 at night The newsreader announced My factory shut down She got up and moved offshore Before my mac’ and cheese Suddenly I’m unemployed On another channel I click on to A politician explained There’s no need to panic That it’s just economic life-cycle Must keep faith in the market For the return of full employment R : Between labour and employment agencies We’re pawns in their game For stock profits Pawns on the chessboard All depends on when It’s the adjustment variables Six months later in the paper It wasn’t trivial Profits soared Shareholders were enjoyed And I’m over at the Unemployment Benefits Office I have less than minimum wage © 2010 Sacem
Madison 03:33
MADISON It was in June last summer It'd rained, it was perfect It was so hot in Madison The yellow house, the white shutters The rocking-chair under the awning It's paradise in Madison The magnolias smelled so good Squirrels on the lawn And thus flowed life Under the Georgia sky At Madison Her blonde hair over the pillow And her lips tasted of vermilion Feel the love in Madison
Trails on the track and dogs barking The sled glides over a silk carpet The snow whipped the fir-tree branches And I hear wolves howling in the distance At that time, I know she’s making tea Burning orange blossom essences In the middle of the living-room, in the sunset She dances her fingers on her white piano R : She awaits me in the wooden house Two steps away from the river-stream Where I know my journey will end Don’t ask me to introduce her to you I know she doesn’t like revealing our secrets Or to speak of a hard to find happiness Which lasts only what it’s meant to last © 2010 Sacem
At the banks of the river Where I swam as a child Hovers my grandpa’s shadow Crowned with white hairs It has the taste of the south The garlic bread of the poor people It has the taste of the south And white pebbly roads At the banks of the river When the spring comes around Daffodils, primroses And blood red tulips It has the taste of the south Syringas, white lilacs It has the taste of the south And white pebbly roads In the barn where the hay’s piled up Are Betty’s radiant breasts Like two flowers I picked up and embraced For the first time. It has the taste of love And kissing by the river-stream It has the taste of love And the sorrows of youth At the banks of the river Where I swam as a child Hovers my grandma’s shadow Soaking her white linen sheets It has the taste of the south The garlic bread of the poor people It has the taste of the south And white pebbly roads © 2010 Sacem
Rihiveli 03:21
RIHIVELI An instrumental written as a tribute to a beautiful atoll in Southern Maldives, named Rihiveli. In Maldivian language, Rihiveli means " silver sands ". I believe it's a grain of paradise wandering about in the Indian Ocean.


A bunch of country, bluegrass, blues, folk with french lyrics. Someway « French Americana » ! Acoustic guitars, steel, dobro, smooth expressive voice for ballads, protest songs. A deep south musical perfume with a french touch. Here is Jefferson Noizet’s world.
