Highway Bound Ever since I could remember there's been an engine inside of me To rock n roll and ramble was an endless aching need Ground my bones on the twisted roads and was born in the fire and steel I drug my soul to parts unknown just to prove that I was real Well there ain't a stretch of highway there ain't a little town Ain't a country road or a city street that these wheels they ain't rolled down I loved and lost on the twisted roads and was born in the fire and steel I sang the blues and paid my dues just to prove that I was real Oh it’s a beautiful sound where the road meets the rubber and the wheels turn round Don't try to stop me I can't slow down I'm a wild one baby and I'm highway bound Going down any road I feel watching the world through my windshield I got one eye on the rear view and a long way to go I got the radio blasting I got the wind in my hair I got my eyes on the horizon I'm gonna find what's waiting out there Oh it’s a beautiful sound where the road meets the rubber and the wheels turn round Don't try to stop me I can't slow down I'm a wild one baby and I'm highway bound

Well Worn Heart Smoky bars and neon lights ain't good for romance Just one night stands, hangovers, and regrets All these honky-tonks been killing me good for drowning memories Who wants to take a chance on a well worn heart? God knows I'm old enough to know better God knows I'm foolish enough to try To gamble on the game of love even though I've lost it all before Who wants to take a chance on a well worn heart? I've got a well worn heart and a restless soul I gave my life to the open road But there's still a few good miles on this well worn heart Take my hand and lead me anywhere you want to Lay me down in your sweet and warm embrace And tomorrow when the morning comes If I wake up and find you gone There'll be one more scar on this well worn heart I've got a well worn heart and a restless soul I gave my life to the open road But there's still a few good miles on this well worn heart

No Honky-Tonks Ain't no honky-tonks in this town smoky bars and neon lights Ain't no juke box in the corner playing Hank songs every night Ain't no steel guitar and fiddle shuffling dancers across the floor There ain't no honky-tonks in this town and I can't take it anymore Well these night been sad and lonely since they closed the Foothill down No more nights at the Palomino where I heard that lonesome sound Got no place to drown my sorrow to the sound of "Misery and Gin" Are they really gone forever? we've got to bring them back again Ain't no honky-tonks in this town smoky bars and neon lights Ain't no juke box in the corner playing George Jones every night Ain't no steel guitar and fiddle shuffling dancers across the floor There ain't no honky-tonks in this town and I can't take it anymore They got Bluegrass out in Nashville man I love those harmonies They got Red Dirt in Oklahoma but that's just rock n roll to me Since they closed the Armadillo a part of history was gone Yeah even out in Texas you know its barely hanging on Ain't no honky-tonks in this town smoky bars and neon lights Ain't no juke box in the corner playing Waylon every night Ain't no steel guitar and fiddle shuffling dancers across the floor There ain't no honky-tonks in this town and I can't take it anymore

Poor Man’s Son Way out yonder and high on the hill There lives an ol' boy with a copper line still In a shotgun shack with his wife and kids Makin' moonshine like his daddy did Once a month when the moon gets low He loads up the truck and away he goes From North Carolina to East Tennessee To make a little money for the family If you see him coming get out of his way don't try to back him down He got a pistol and a rifle and a new shotgun Don't you go messin' with a poor man's son Where he's living ain't nobody know So deep in the woods even the law won't go People been coming for miles around For that good corn liquor in an old fruit jar He don't care about the world outside Don't give a damn if it pass him by Living off the land wild and free Like his Grandaddy learned from the Cherokee If you see him coming get out of his way Don't try to track him down He got a pistol and a rifle and a new shotgun Don't you go messin' with a poor man's son A family tradition going down the line He and his kin been making moonshine living off the land wild and free like his Grandaddy learned from the Cherokee If you see him coming get out of his way Don't try to back him down He got a pistol and a rifle and a new shotgun Don't you go messin' with a poor man's son Way out yonder and high on the hill There live an ol' boy with a copper line still

Ain’t No Tellin’ Sittin' and cryin' neath the Cottonwood tree Rattlin' your chains wondering when you'll be free No use tryin' to make sense of it all Cause there ain't no tellin' when the hammer gonna fall Flesh and spirit and muscle and bone No matter who loves you you go alone You can beat your fists against the wall but there ain't no tellin' when the hammer gonna fall Who gonna save you? Where you gonna run? What will you put your faith in? Will you be reaching for a bible or a gun? Wind and water and earth and seed You'll be working in a field with a family to feed You can break your back for any hope at all But there ain't no tellin' when the hammer gonna fall Who gonna save you? Where you gonna run? What will you put your faith in? Will you be reaching for a bible or a gun? Religion and power and bullets and blood They tell who to kill and they tell you who to love You can beat your fists against the wall But there ain't no tellin' when the hammer gonna fall Now your sittin and cryin' neath the Cottonwood tree Rattlin' your chains wondering when you'll be free Ain't use trying' to make sense of it all There ain't no tellin' when the hammer gonna fall

Leave A Light On Well the leaves on the trees they been falling and a cold wild wind blows through your bones I've been gone too long and left you all alone and your wondering if I'm ever coming home In the long cold hours of the evening your wondering if I'm just a memory I'll be coming home to melt your heart of stone so baby leave a light on for me The love of a good hearted woman is something that ain't easy to find If you leave her waiting on your kisses she may get ideas in her mind Long are the roads that I travel searching for a long lost melody but I'll be coming home to melt your heart of stone so baby leave a light on for me
7.
Into The Blue If I was your fool I'd be crying just like you want me to But I can't go on just letting you hurt me your out of my heart and into the blue I'm so tired of all the games that you've been playing I never knew a heart could be so cruel Down here in the land of the lost and lonely your out of my heart and into the blue Just walk away and don't look back on Everything that you broke in two You've got nothing left to hold me your out of my heart and into the blue

El Troubadour I can't remember who I used to be a million miles of lost memories Nothing feels like it used to feel my old life it just don't seem real I got a wife and family don't even know if they're waiting on me I just keep rolling down this one way track you make your choices and you don't look back Still those wheels keep turning round I'm a troubadour and I can't slow down White line fever and a broken heart in this neon dream you gotta play your part I can't remember how I used to feel Cause that old life it just don't seem real Still those wheels keep turning round I'm a troubadour and I can't slow down I can't remember who I used to be this old life it just don't seem real

New Old Story We been out here way too long searching for a brand new song and trying to hold it all together and keep from going crazy off the rails And the honky-tonks I've played them all from shopping malls to concert halls I've done em' I'm not proud of things I've done but I'm proud of the man that I've become And the goodbyes always come too soon in off the highway hotel rooms you wonder if the chance of living free is just a smoky memory The road is the only place that feels like home Don't count me out there's a lot of love left in this heart of mine Don't shoot me down for taking the chance and betting on myself For all the miles between running down my dream I'm just a new old story coming back around Now the ones who came before me been up and down these roads the same as me living just for giving and trying to find a place where they belong And the women come and the women go they love you but it’s only for a while They can't fight the loneliness living with the second best or the rambling fever deep down in my soul Don't count me out there's a lot of love left in this heart of mine. Don't shoot me down for taking the chance and betting on myself For all the things I've seen running down my dream I'm just a new old story coming back around Don't count me out there's a lot of love left in this heart of mine. Don't shoot me down for taking the chance and betting on myself For all the miles between running down my dream I'm just a new old story coming back around For all the things I've seen running down my dream I'm just a new old story coming back around

The Bounds of Your Heart From the dance hall queens to the drunken scenes to the words that tore us apart I took your youth and I took your love Never knowing the bounds of your heart Your eyes once stared so lovingly that's not how they look at me now If I could just turn back the hands of time I'd make it alright somehow Tried to love you strong tried to love you true Tried to give you honey all that you want I had to leave when the highway called and that's how this boy broke your heart Now love is a blessing and love is a curse You took me for better and left me for worse I guess in the end we all get what we deserve Never knowing the bounds of your heart I tried to love you strong tried to love you true Tried to give you honey all that you want I had to leave when the highway called and that's how this boy broke your heart From your warm soft sheets to the cold hard streets we were over before we could start I took your youth and I took your love never knowing the bounds of your heart never knowing the bounds of your heart

about

"They have created one of the best Country albums of 2013, and one that will definitely stir up some sawdust on the dance room floor. The sound is a straight forward tribute to what Country should exemplify." – Twangville
