"Pick up my axe and fight like a farmer." "Machine Gun" Jimi Hendrix Machine gun Tearing my body all apart Machine gun Tearing my body all apart Evil man make me kill ya Evil man make you kill me Evil man make me kill you Even though we're only families apart Well I pick up my axe and fight like a farmer Hey and your bullets keep knocking me down Hey I pick up my axe and fight like a farmer now Yeah but you still blast me down to the ground The same way you shoot me down baby You'll be going just the same Three times the pain And your own self to blame Hey machine gun I ain't afraid no more, babe I ain't afraid no more After a while your your cheap talk don't even cause me pain So let your bullets fly like rain Because I know all the time you're wrong baby And you'll be going just the same Yeah machine gun Tearing my family apart Yeah yeah alright Tearing my family apart
When Cody came to Ken with the concept that he wanted to cover the infamous Hendrix classic to bring awareness to the victims of war, Ken knew that Teddy was the perfect fit to help make a new take on the legendary song "Machine Gun." Recorded live in two takes inside Cartoon Moon Studios in Nashville, Tennessee USA and produced by Ken Coomer, this historic recording is a small token to try and help those in need.
Ted Pecchio is an American bassist and currently a member of Doyle Bramhall II's touring group. Prior to that he played with Colonel Bruce Hampton and the Codetalkers and Susan Tedeschi.
All proceeds from Cody Brooks' release of "Machine Gun" go directly to aid the victims and refugees of the Ukrainian War. Here are my favorite organizations to donate for immediate relief without corruption.
