Lyrics

Shuttle To Bethlehem (Pendl do Betlema)

Lyrics: Robert Krestan. Translation: Ruth Ellen Gruber

I hear nothing, just a barking and a seagull´s cry.
Bells are wailing, friars humming, and the crows whiz by
The whistle´s sizzling, even kissing you sounds like a slap
Dies irae, all around the shrieks of pelicans.

Refrain:

But before I disappear, my dumb love,
Let me hitchhike for you while I can.
Today I´m gone, on the shuttle train to Bethl´em,
Maybe soon, a taxi to the promised land.

Your eyes tell me, you got everything you ever asked.
You´re driven crazy, by my fear, my nakedness.
My heart is bleeding, the priest slashes with a knife of stone;
Just like you, dear, just like you and you and you alone.

Refrain:

But before I disappear, my dumb love,
Let me hitchhike for you while I can.
Today I´m gone, on the shuttle train to Bethl´em,
Maybe soon, a taxi to the promised land.

Druha Trava - Shuttle To Bethlehem

Druha Trava is a wonderfully individual band from the Czech Republic that is hard to describe.

They perform new acoustic world music with bluegrass influences. You might hear them perform a bluegrass tune, Bob Dylan tune or one by another American or British artist, or one of their many originals.

Though they basically use a typical bluegrass complement of instruments, you might see the banjo player also pick up a clarinet or Irish whistle. This along with the versatility of the dobro player helps create much of their unique sound. The Bluegrass Association of the Czech Republic declared Druha Trava "Group of the Year" in both 2005 and 2006.
