about

Doug Mains & the City Folk Lansing

One pensive troubadour backed by classical strings, modern accordion, and dynamic percussion is what you can expect from Doug Mains & the City Folk. Rooted in Michigan, this group bears a rich and smooth sound refreshing to the progressive world of indie folk. Thought provoking lyrics run deep in Mains’ songs accompanied by lonely guitar pickings that swell to thunderous string harmonies. ... more

Track Name: Pennies
I am only one coin, I am only one coin
Who by myself has little worth
But with my friends could buy the earth

I am only one branch, I am only one branch
Who’s wandered from my home and roots
And still found worthy to bear some fruit

I am only one drop, I am only one drop
Just one of many falling steep
Only to dive into the sea

I am only one man
I am only one man
I am only one but I'm still one

I am only one seed, I am only one seed
Who's fallen to the ground below
And whispers to the dirt "there's always hope"

I have only one voice, I am only one breath
And I will sing the honest truth
About all I've been learning through my youth

I am only one man
I am only one man
I am only one but I'm still one

I have only one life, I have only one life
And why I have I don't know what for
But I won't waste it anymore

I am only one man
I am only one man
I am only one but I'm still one
