This song was written in collaboration with my friend Lubo Alexandrov and recorded live in Studio Makina, Montreal, We overdubbed French horn, steel guitar and a 2nd vocal part.


I`ve been travelling overland, through the broken promised land
To find that medicine Man, so he could set me right
With the medicine in his hands, the sacred contraband
That shows a scholar the void, and a beggar the light
Where's the medicine man?

He put the medicine in my mouth, pointed me due south
And started to sing, a poisoned lullaby
Did an ancient dance, shook me out of trance
Now there's nobody there, behind my eyes
But the medicine man

He took all the treasure from the table
Shot me into space 'cause he was able
And now I have nothin left to fable
Where's the medicine man?
Where's the medicine man?
