Lirik Lagu Mad Mission - Patty Griffin

We were drinking like the irish
but we were drinking scotch
bartender turned on a movie
everybody turned to watch
and every single eye was gleaming
as he reached the final scene
well, at least mine did
here's lookin' at you, kid
It's a mad mission
under difficult conditions
not everybody makes it
to the loving cup
it's a mad mission
but i got the ambition
mad, mad mission
sign me up
I think i've seen the look before, yes,
it's kind of non-commital
it says come hither, baby, but then he's hard wood to whittle
it says it don't mean a thing, but still, somebody does
he'd like you to join the club that likes to say
there's no such thing as love and
It's a mad mission
under difficult conditions
not everybody makes it
to the loving cup
it's a mad mission
but i got the ambition
mad, mad mission
sign me up
Sometimes you find yourself
flying low at night
flying blind and looking for
any sign of light
you're cold and scared, and all alone
you'd do anything just to make it home
It's a mad mission
under difficult conditions
not everybody makes it
to the loving cup
it's a mad mission
but i got the ambition
mad, mad mission
sign me up
Sign me up

Patty Griffin (born Patricia Jean Griffin on March 16, 1964, in Old Town, Maine) is an American Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and musician. Known for her stripped-down songwriting style centered around the folk music genre, her songs have been covered by a host of musicians including Emmylou Harris, Ellis Paul, Rory Block, and the Dixie Chicks. In 2007, she was the recipient of the Americana Music Association's "Artist of the Year" award and her album, Children Running Through, won for "Best Album". In 2011, her album Downtown Church won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Gospel Album.

After a short marriage which ended in 1992, Griffin began playing in Boston coffee houses and was scouted by A&M Records who signed Griffin on the strength of her demo tape. This resulted in her debut album Living With Ghosts -- a set of demos featuring only Ms. Griffin and her guitar -- which garnered critical acclaim in 1996. Her sophomore album, Flaming Red, demonstrated a more rocking, full-band sound. The ill-fated Silver Bell album was never released by her record label, however, and the label terminated her recording contract shortly after that. Many of the songs from Silver Bell were re-recorded for subsequent albums.

After switching to ATO Records Griffin brought out three albums in rapid succession: 1000 Kisses and Impossible Dream, which were both nominated for Grammy awards, and A Kiss in Time, a well-received live album. In March 2007, she released Children Running Through to great critical acclaim.

She has penned a wide variety of songs - Long Ride Home, Top of the World, Tony, Forgiveness, Chief, Mad Mission--that touch her listeners deeply. A number of high profile artists have covered Patty's songs, including the Dixie Chicks, Bette Midler, Emmylou Harris, The Wreckers, Solomon Burke and pop star Kelly Clarkson; these have brought her exposure in the more mainstream pop and country worlds outside of folk music circles. Upon hearing Solomon Burke's cover of one of her tunes, she said she almost didn't feel worthy of singing it anymore.

Following her collaboration with Mavis Staples on a tune for a compilation album Peter York, suggested Griffin make an album of gospel songs. Griffin agreed on the condition that Buddy Miller, a friend and bandmate, produced the record. Downtown Church was recorded at the Downtown Presbyterian Church in Nashville with a 2010 release date. The album features long-time friends Buddy and Julie Miller, as well as Shawn Colvin and Emmylou Harris. It also includes songs by Hank Williams, Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton, and "All Creatures of Our God and King," a song accredited to St. Francis of Assisi.

Griffin featured on Robert Plant's solo album, Band of Joy, which was released in September 2010

Griffin's album American Kid was released on May 7, 2013 Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
