Let the countdown to Charles Wesley Godwin’s next album begin…
The king of West Virginia (as declared by me) has been putting out stripped down versions of new songs for a little while now, like “Skyline Blues” and “All Again”, and with this latest one, it’s safe to say there’s something in the works…
We previously heard this song soon after he released the 2021 Whiskey Riff Album Of The Year How The Mighty Fall, but this latest version was produced incredibly well by Truthful Sessions and got my heart pumping for his next record.
“West Of Lonesome” is an incredibly sad song and Charles deep voice really digs at the heart strings, belting the powerful lyrics deep into your soul.
“There’s a fire up on my mountain
Blood is on the floor
Water over my levee
Need I say anymore?
About the path that you tore
All the holes that your wore
Right through me.”
I mean, COME ON… that’s so good.
Loved everything the man’s done so far, and with the little bit we’ve already been shown, safe to say, going to love what’s yet to come.
