about

Acoustic version of "Sonora"

I wrote this song when they said it was the end of the world a few years ago. I thought, if it really were, what would I do? I would want to get everyone I loved together and dance and laugh til the sun went down. Drink too much champagne, twirl on the dance floor in our party clothes. What else could you really do with your last night but fill it with joy?

It ended up being a bright song for a doomsday tune.

lyrics

Untie your hair
Sweet Baby
Don't you worry your pretty head
I know they said there's
No tomorrow
We've got tonight instead
They've got a band together
Let's go down and dance

Shake, baby, shake
Oh you know we're the lucky ones
Shake, shake, shake
Let enough
Be enough

Black dress shoes and
My father's tie
You in your party dress
Drink to much and
Spin so fast
Throw your head back and laugh
Don't you worry baby
Won't let go of your hand

Shake, baby, shake
Oh you know we're the lucky ones
Shake, shake, shake
Let enough
Be enough

Let's go out
My arm around you
Where it's just you and me
Watch the sun
Burning up
Behind the joshua trees
If it's the last time
I had all I need

Shake, baby, shake
Oh you know we're the lucky ones
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Let enough
Be enough
Let enough
Be enough

Jenna Ellefson Portland, Oregon

Jenna grew up in lush Oregon, beside waterfalls, amid tall trees and foxgloves. One flowery spring, on a whim, she bought a little banjo...and suddenly all the poems she had been scribbling, and all the melodies she had been humming, and all the beautiful places she had seen spilled out over its little plucky strings and finally...she had songs to sing. ... more
