about

Sassy rootsy and fun! Our third album is a blugrassy rootsy romp about love gone right, love gone wrong and love gone worse. Arson and drownings abound with a little gospel thrown in the mix. Thanks for listening!

Track Name: Midnight Fire
I've never seen trouble in this old country town
But last night the devil came to call
With a terror I awoke from the smell of deadly smoke
Burn, Burn, Burn, Midnight Fire

I jumped right outta bed, to the window I did go
I couldn't quite believe just what I saw
From the house across the street, angry flames of twenty feet,
Burn, Burn, Burn, Midnight Fire

Was the home of a fellow named John McBride
And his young wife Annabelle May
Surely the two were trapped inside
Helpless in the heart of the blaze

Fire! Fire!
Down in the country where my heart was sleepin'
Fire! Fire!
Swallowed the ol' house whole
Set fire to my soul at midnight

Firetrucks arrived with sirens screeching round the bend
But nothing nothing could be done
The sheriff looked around and said boys this was no accident
Somebody set that midnight fire

The neighbours got to talkin; as they gathered in the srteets
And rumours of McBride began to fly
As for enemies and foes seemed he'd had his share of those
Somebody set that midnight Fire

Some say Johnny was a drinker and a bad one too,
With a temper like a bull in a cage
He took it out on Annabelle everybody knew
She'd seen the worst of his rage

Fire! Fire!
Down in the country where my heart was sleepin'
Whoa -oh
Johnny! Johnny!
Somebody wanted him gone
Dead and gone
But Annie! Annie!
She didn't have to die,
Who dunnit and why?

Dawn broke ashes turned to dust
In the morning they went searchin' for the bodies identifying Johnny's
But Annabelle she'd left no remains
But no one had a doubt that she'd been there in bed
and everyone presumed the girl dead

Now somewhere silhouetted in the early morning mist
Moving like a gypsy on the run
Rosy cheeked and full of life, glory be Johnny''s wife
Burn burn burn midnight fire
With a missing wedding band and a matchbook in her hand
She'd burned burned burned midnight fire
Fire! Glory be the midnight fire
Track Name: Won't Come Back
I pity you cause soon you'll see
You're never gonna find another girl like me
You can go looking baby, high and low
But soon I'm gonna tell you that I told you so
And when I do, I know that you
You think I'm gonna come-a-running back to you but I'll be
On my way, along the track.
Baby let me know and now I won't come back

Won't come back
Won't come back

I pity you, I can't deny
Never been so happy since we said goodbye
Never so giddy never so free
Never so sure that you were wrong for me
And I know you, I surely do
You think I'm gonna come-a-running back to you but I'm-a
Moving on, and that's a fact
Baby let me know and now I won't come back

Won't come back
Won't come back

I'm gonna go down to Tennessee
(Won't come back, Won't come back)
I'm-a gonna find me an American man
(Won't come back, Won't come back)
He's gonna be so good to me
(Won't come back, Won't come back)
Then I'm gonna join me in a country band
and play all night with Dirty Dishes!

(Solo)

I pity you, I really do
Cause soon you're gonna see me with someone new
At the theatre, at a show, walking down the street or on on a patio
And I know you, I surely do
Eventually you see me running back to you but everything he's got is what you lack
My baby let me know and now I won't come back

Won't come back
Won't come back

Baby let me know and now I won't come back
Track Name: Evangeline
She stands on the banks of mighty Mississippi
Alone in the pale moonlight
Waitin' for a man, a riverboat gambler
Said that he'd return tonight

They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Lovin' the whole night through
He was a riverboat gambler off to make a killin'
And bring it on back to you

Evangeline, Evangeline
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
That pulled her man away

Bayou Sam from South Louisian'
Had gamblin' in his veins
Evangeline from the maritime
Was slowly goin' insane

High on the top of a Hickory Hill
She stands in the lightning and thunder
Down on the river the boat was a sinkin'
She watched that Queen go under

Evangeline, Evangeline
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
That pulled her man away

Evangeline, Evangeline
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
That pulled her man away
Track Name: For The Last Time
If you're feeling sad and blue
Don't come crying to me
Maybe you feel lonely too
Don't come crying to me
Because I heard it once I heard it twice
I don't get nothin' but I pay the price
And I've been your shoulder to cry on For the last time

You say you're in the mood for love
But mama didn't raise no foolT
hat I'm the one you're thinking of
But mama didn't raise no fool
Because I been there once I been there twice
You talk so sweetly but you don't play nice
I been the one you can rely on For the last time

I been cheated, I been defeated, but I was too blind to see
til I got wise, and now I realize, you aint got a hold on me
And now you got that look in your eye
I ain't changing my mind
I don't care what games you try
I ain't changing my mind
Because I loved you once I loved you twice
You heat me up but you're cold as ice
And I been the one you got your eye on
For the last time

Your deceiving, kept me believing someday you'd give me moreI'm through trying to justify your lying, I'm walking out that door

And Stay Out!


And now I got somebody new
Ooh ooh How'd ya like that?
Lucky me he loves me too
Ooh ooh How'd ya like that?
He treats me right, he treats me good
he gives me loving like you never could
And I've been your shoulder to cry onI
been the one you can rely on
And I been the one you got your eye on
For the last time!
Track Name: Rockytop
Wish that I was on ole rocky top,
Down in the Tennessee hills.
Ain't no smoggy smoke on rocky top,
Ain't no telephone bills.

Once I had a boy on rocky top,
Half bear the other half cat.
Wild as a mink, but sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.

Rocky top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top Tennessee, rocky top Tennessee.

Once two strangers climbed on rocky top,
Lookin' for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain't come back from rocky top,
Reckon they never will.

Corn don't grow at all on rocky top,
Ground's too rocky by far.
That's why all the folks on rocky top
Get their corn from a jar.

Rocky top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top Tennessee, rocky top Tennessee.

I've had years of pent up city life,
Trapped like a duck in a pen.
All I know is it's a pity life
Can't be simple again.

Rocky top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top Tennessee, rocky top Tennessee.
Rocky top Tennessee, rocky top Tennessee.
Whoo!
Track Name: Where Do We Go?
I’ve been on this dusty road of loving you
You make it so easy for my heart to be true
Now street lights shine on our fates being sold and
Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go?

Where do we go in this love affair?
I can see it in your eyes that you just don’t care.
I’ve tried and I’ve tried to love you like you want me to but
Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go?

Pleasure laid out like a road map
Then fog moves in that I can’t understand
Impossible to take just one more step
Just stranded here and reaching out my hand

This god forsaken road has choked my heart clean
Still not making the leaving any easier to do
The silence that binds is screaming in the night and
Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go?
Where do we go? Where do we go?
Track Name: Your Bucket's Got a Hole In It
You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
That I can’t fix

I’m trying hard to roll with it
But you’re laying me low with it
You’re Bucket’s Got a great big hole
That I can’t fix

There’s a hole in your bucket where the water runs through
And I ain’t got no medicine that’s gonna fix you
I tried and I tried but there ain’t no talkin’ to you
You’re bucket’s got a hole and there’s nothing I can dooooo

You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
That I can’t fix

You’re pointing fingers and you're taking names
But the ugly truth is that you’re the one to blame
You can cuss and swear into the dying light
You can rage rage rage but it ain’t gonna make it right

Oooooh oooh water runs through
Ooooooh ooooh oooh water runs through

You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
You’re Bucket’s Got a hole in it
That I can’t fix

I’m trying hard to roll with it
But you’re laying me low with it
You’re Bucket’s Got a great big hole
That I can’t fix!
Track Name: Every Road
Every Road that I travel somehow leads to your door
so you stand at the window and you wait
'til the dark dims the sky and you bid the day goodbye
then you light a candle at the gate,
ooh then you light a candle at the gate

If my life should unravel and my bottles float ashore
You will set out to rescue me somehow
and you'll sail to me 'til it grows too dark to see
then you'll light a candle at the bow
ooh and you'll light a candle at the bow

You'll light a candle when the sun goes down
a beacon for travelers to see
You light a candle for the ones you love the best
but you burn the brightest candle for me

I'm your friend, I'm your family every day by your side
when you call I'll be there to hold your hand
And we'll share the day 'til the sun get's washed away
then we'll light a candle in the sand
ooh then we'll light a candle in the sand
ooh then we'll light a candle in the sand
Track Name: Mountain Dew
Down the road from Suz there's a place to get booze
If you lay down a dollar or two
If she shuts up her mug then they'll fill up her jug
With that good ole mountain dew

They call it that ole mountain dew
And them that refuse it are few
If I shut up my mug then they'll fill up my jug
With that good ole mountain dew

Now Lisa's the sort, she's sawed off and short
She measures just four foot two
But she thinks she's a giant when you give her a pint
Of that good ole mountain dew

They call it that ole mountain dew
And them that refuse it are few
I knows I'm a giant when they give me a pint
With that good ole mountain dew

Well Ali's over the moon with her brand new perfume
It has such a sweet smellin' pew
Imagine her surprise when she had it analyzed
It was nothin' but good ole mountain dew

They call it that ole mountain dew
And them that refuse it are few
Imagine my surprise when I had it analyzed
It was nothin' but good ole mountain dew

Well well well!
We're hot on the stage when we're making our wage
Cause that's what we love to do
But we're wild on the loose when we taste that seewt juice
Of that holler swaller good ole mountian dew

They call it that ole mountain dew
And them that refuse it are few
Let's shut up our mugs and they'll fill up our jugs
With that good ole mountain dew

Good ole mountain
Good ole mountain
Good ole mountain dew!
Track Name: After The Goldrush
Well, I dreamed I saw the knights
In armour coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and
Drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing
To the sun
That was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.

I was lying in a burned out basement
With the full moon in my eyes.
I was hoping for replacement
When the sun burst through the skies.
There was a band playing in my head
And I felt like getting high.
I was thinking about what a
Friend had said
I was hoping it was a lie.
Thinking about what a
Friend had said
I was hoping it was a lie.

Well I dreamed I saw the silver
Space ships flying
In the yellow haze of the sun,
There were children crying
And colours flying
All around the chosen ones.
All in a dream, all in a dream
The loading had begun.
Flying Mother Nature's
Silver seed to a new home in the sun.
Flying Mother Nature's
Silver seed to a new home.
Track Name: Gospel Medley
As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord, show me the way

O brother let's go down,
Let's go down, come on down,
O sisters let's go down,
Down in the river to pray.

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord, show me the way !

O sister let's go down,
Let's go down, come on down,
Come on brothers let's go down,
Down in the river to pray.


Wandered so aimless life filed with sin
I wouldn't let my dear savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the lord I saw the light.

I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the lord I saw the light.

Just like a blind man I wandered along
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like the blind man that god gave back his sight
Praise the lord I saw the light.

I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the lord I saw the light.

This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine

Everyday, everyday, everyday everyday
Everyday I'll let my little might shine

Take it around the world
I'm gonna let it shine
Take it around the world
I'm gonna let it shine
Take it around the world
I'm gonna let it shine

Everyday, everyday, everyday everyday
Everyday I'll let my little might shine!
