Phish bassist and solo recording artist Mike Gordon has released a video for "Yarmouth Road," a song from his fourth solo album, Overstep. You can watch it above.

The video is the story of a man who builds a home for a woman he adores and fills it with household items. He visits such stores as Target and Dick's Sporting Goods looking for items he thinks the woman would want. Hallucinogenic scenes accompany an upbeat, reggae melody during his shopping experience. Unfortunately, he is disappointed when the woman sees the house and has an unpleasant reaction. The only option left for him is to continue work on the house and convince her to one day come and join him. It's a heartbreaking love story that stirs the soul.

Mike Gordon - "Yarmouth Road" Lyrics:

I dig a deep hole, bees buzzing all around
But I know you’ll be happy
That I’m pouring concrete in the ground

Hoist up posts and beams erratically
Garden plot’s beautiful, Painter gets at it
But I guess I should have checked with you somehow

Thought I could get you to come to Yarmouth Road
Hang with the bees and buzz in the honeycomb
All I ever wanted you to do was to come on home
Hang with the bees and buzz in the honeycomb

I filled up the shelves with funny books to laugh to
Lazy susan has some of the mocha rings that you love
Registered our names so they’ll know where to bring us our mail

Couldn’t find flat wax for all the mahogany
Didn’t we see some walking through a trade show
Does any of this even start to ring a bell

Thought I could get you to come to Yarmouth Road
Hang with the bees and buzz in the honeycomb
All I ever wanted you to do was to come on home
Hang with the bees and buzz in the honeycomb, when we need to roam

Blind faith stings hastily
My faith brings me, right to the flower shop
I’d like that bouquet please, wrap some of those extra green things around the stems
A little card to write on if you have them

Candles are lit all the red napkins folded
Pecan pie wafting fumes from the oven
Turned off all the ringers on the phones

Look out the window see headlights passing by
Maybe I don’t see you and I don’t really know why
Don’t make me feel like a guest in our own home

The song made its debut with Phish on 7/5/2013 at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY. Below is a video of that performance.

Overstep is available through the Mike Gordon officialwebsite where it is available in CD and vinyl. For more music, videos, news, and tour dates from Mike Gordon, check out his Zumic artist page.
