about

Barefoot Leroy is a new band of veteran musicians based in Eugene, Oregon. Consisting of four (or five, with bass) veteran performers, the band draws on material from the great troubadours of our day [Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, Marc Knopfler, Bob Dylan, Jean Ritchie, Rodney Crowell, Robbie Robertson] as well as presenting a number of Lea Jones’ “almost award-winning” original tunes.

Featuring a punchy acoustic blend of mandolin, guitar, percussion, vocals and accordion, Barefoot Leroy offers up a number of both obscure & familiar tunes featuring creative, rich interpretations. Strong lead and harmony vocals augment the instrumental mix.

On top of the musical expertise oozing from the band, audiences will enjoy the ease, humor, freshness, and energy & spontaneity of Barefoot Leroy’s live performances. This is a fun group to both see and hear!

lyrics

Did you see the invisible man (oh no, oh no)
Did you see the invisible man (oh no, oh no)
He was right over here a minute ago
I saw him soft shoe shufflin' right toward the door
Now what do you think he'd go and do that for
Did you see the invisible man

Did you hear the invisible man (oh no, oh no)
Did you hear the invisible man (oh no, oh no)
No words were deciphered, no meaning made out
When he stood there before you and opened his mouth
But four and twenty blackbirds went flappin' about
Did you hear the invisible man

Do you fear the invisible man (oh yeah, oh yeah)
Do you fear the invisible man (oh yeah, oh yeah)
He's all gristle and bone but stylin' rags
Got no eyeballs but big black bags
A flag holder, a cool breeze, but no flag
Do you fear the invisible man

Did you see the invisible man (oh no, oh no)
Did you see the invisible man (oh no, oh no)
He was right over here a minute ago
I saw him slip slidin’ right toward the door
Now what do you think he'd go and do that for?
