Sun King Rising releases “One More Story To Tell” a song about a musician who exploits the power of his words and music for what some may consider less-than-honorable motives.

Sun King Rising is a solo project by singer-songwriter John Blangero from Port Isabel, Texas. Steeped in the tradition of southern rock, country, and soul…

One More Story To Tel Lyrics

The scent of a secret is floating on the wind
The lost cause of a last set is how this song begins
Silken words and white lies roll off my tongue tonight
One more story to tell beneath the lights

The hearts of some women may take a chorus to hook
Painted ladies and paladins reside in my songbook
Trespass and sweet thrills obscure the subplot line
One more story to tell, one more song to shine
One more story to tell until you’re mine

The drummer mentioned that you were sweet on me
My laughing gulls in bolo ties made you smile I see
One more story to tell, one more song to shine
One more story to tell and then you’re mine

This country Byron lights a fire in your eyes
I can twang humbly when necessities arise
Metaphor and rhythm make you fair weak in the knees
Promises and miracles and mudflat symphonies
Parallels and pauses and sweet magnolia trees

One more story to tell, one more hook to set
One more story to tell, a verse you won’t forget
One more story to tell, one more song to shine
One more story to tell and then you’re mine

Album Review Quotes
“Signs & Wonders” is a satisfyingly psyche-cleansing experience.
Dmitry M. Epstein – DMME

He doesn’t need the approval of the establishment to be a star; honestly, he just needs to keep making music like this.
Mark Druery – Indie Shark

“Signs & Wonders” is not just about the music; it’s about the experience – the experience of being taken on a musical journey, of feeling the raw emotions, of witnessing the genius of a true artist. It’s about the journey from the first note to the last, and everything in between.
Michael Stover – Music Crowns

We recommend listening through the album from start to finish to get the perfect experience but don’t worry, it’ll be the best 42 minutes you’ll ever spend. 
Board City

There is greatness within, and anyone who enjoys Americana-style rock cannot afford to miss out on what is a true classic of the genre. Accessible from the very first note, it repays repeated plays as there is just so much breadth and depth within. Music rarely gets better than this. 
Kev Rowland – ReZonatZ
