lyrics

I met a boy from Minnesota
He took me out on
His little green boat and we sailed out to sea
Between the rolling tides
The who, the what, the why
We studied squares of sky
And floated towards goodbye

I met a boy from Minnesota
He took me out on
His little green boat and we sailed out to sea
In the blackness of the night
The moon cast a line
Around a triangle of light
Then tugged back time

We passed the hours by reading books
And feasting on sweet nectarines
All I can say about the boy who took me to sea is that
He wasn’t what he seemed

I knew a man from Minnesota
I knew a man from Minnesota

about

Ange Takats Australia

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
