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

Track Name: Highway Bound
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
Track Name: Well Worn Heart
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
Track Name: No Honky-Tonks
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
Track Name: Poor Man's Son
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
Track Name: Ain't No Tellin'
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
Track Name: Leave A Light On
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
Track Name: Into the Blue
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
Track Name: El Troubadour
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
Track Name: New Old Story
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
Track Name: Bounds of Your Heart
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
