about

The Reliquaries' debut album draws on the traditional sounds of Ozark and Appalachian folk music and the history of German-American immigrants in Missouri to recreate the milieu that is both intimately regional and ultimately timeless.

Track Name: The Juniper Tree
As red as blood and as white as snow
What happens here no one cares to know
Mama - Mama took him upstairs
And I heard him cry
What happens here, no one cares
And I stood by

As red as blood and as white as snow
Daddy come home, he don’t care to know
Mama – mama cooked him a meal
And I had to cry
Daddy and the dogs ate well
And I stood by

As red as blood and as white as snow
Neighbors knocking nice at the front door
Mama – mama shows em around
She smiles so wide
They don’t care to know what went down
And I stood by

As red as blood and as white as snow
I took his bones, took em down below
Buried em under the tree
Thought that I would die
Mama said she did the deed for me
And I stood by

I, I, I, I
I stood by

As red as blood and as white as snow
One of these lonely days we’ll get to go
A beautiful bird, burnin’ in the tree
He and I, oh yes, we’ll fly
When the juniper burns we’ll be free
And I won’t stand by

When the juniper burns we’ll be free
And I won’t stand by

I, I, I, I
I won’t stand by

I, I, I, I
I won’t stand by
