about

"Warrior" . A Cosmic Americana track by Swamp Music Players recorded and mixed by award winning producer Wynn Gogol. With vocals and rhythm guitar by Matt Franke!

Warrior is a dark and contemplative song about the hard unforgiving life of a ring fighter and the cosmic mystery that may hang over our heads.
In the spirit of SMP's transistorized LoFi roots, the Warrior mix features One Ton Studio's iconic plate reverbs. Each 3' by 6' custom steel plate evokes an era. Warrior's snare sound and lead vocal were sent through the darker cold rolled steel plate, a classic sound heard on thousands of hit records from the 1950s to the 1970s. The background harmonies were sent to the stainless steel plate, a more modern sound pioneered by plate guru Jim Cunningham in the 1980s.

lyrics

"He woke up alone cold to the bone in the back of his El Camino
Heading to the ring don't feel the sting like a high desert Palomino
No Cash no crown with the sun setting down rolling out on a long lost highway
He drifts into night in the eerie light at the end of a lonely byway
He put his war paint on one more time crowds will rise one more time
another man down in this one horse town he is every-man's warrior
Headlights shine through Ponderosa pine , deep in his thoughts and memories
Lost in his mind losing all trace of time now he is running on empty
He put his war paint on one more time crowds will rise one more time
Another man down in this one horse town he is every-man's warrior
Focusing his eyes on the fire in the sky through the shadows of the Coconinos
Far from the ring feeling the sting in the flames of his El Camino
He put his war paint on one more time crowds will rise one more time
another man down in this one horse town he's the last warrior
He put his war paint on one more time crowds will rise one more time
another man down in this one horse town he's the last warrior
Warrior"
