The band stirs up its Americana influences, featuring quick picking and bluesy slide guitar over galloping train beats and swinging shuffles. ... more

You for me, me for you now honey I swear that’s the truth, I’ll be home tomorrow, well it looks like were staying later were busting bottles breaking tables now I’ll be home tomorrow, one more night of drinking whiskey fuckin round with pretty Dixie I’ll be home tomorrow.

Track Name: Rather
I’d rather meet my maker I’d rather climb into, the beat up pick up truck that cross town train with you I’d rather fall, I’d rather fall…

That God damn woman she don’t like the way I act, sure spends my money though hell baby that’s a fact and now I know, ya now I know.

She took all my lovin, lovin, now she’s gone. She took all my lovin, lovin ya now shes gone…

This morning can’t come soon it can’t come soon enough, gona grab my gear honey and jump in that old truck cause now I know, ya now I know.

This here old ramblin man aint got nowhere to go, gona walk these streets at night gona drink my whiskey slow cause now I know, ya now I know.

She took all my lovin, lovin, now she’s gone. She took all my lovin, lovin ya now shes gone…
Track Name: Shoot Em Up
Shoot em up once shoot em up twice take a look at her beneath the pale moon light. She had twinkle in her eye a pistol by her side little did I know she was the law mans wife. Took a seat next to mine tempt me with a smile asked for a drink and the bar man sighed. He said aint nobody drinking here with you. Aint nobody drinking here with you.

So I put on my hat pulled my hair back leaned to the side and I let hell fly….

We let them bullets rage and danced across the floor lit up that old saloon for miles and miles I’m sure…

We danced till late put us in a state she knew I was an outlaw by her old mans face, he kicked down the door pushed me to the floor I pulled for my iron and I let hell roar. So shoot em up once shoot em up twice take a look at her beneath the pale moon light. He said aint nobody drinking here with you. Aint nobody drinking here with you…

So I put on my hat pulled my hair back leaned to the side and I let hell fly…

We let them bullets rage and danced across the floor lit up that old saloon for miles and miles I’m sure…
Track Name: Ava Red
I found her sprawled out on the table in her Sundays best, her eyes wide open, but that old pretty dress a mess, a needle in her arm and a smile told the rest, have mercy ma and pa on a Ava Red, have mercy ma and pa on Ava Red. It was Sunday when I met you its been 10 long years since then, I loved you at first sight Ava Red, we lay you down now in a soft ground your initials on my chest, have mercy ma and pa on Ava Red, have mercy ma and pa on Ava Red.

Ava I’m gona love you til I die, Ava I’m gona love you til I die….
Track Name: Afraid of Dying
I met a pretty little woman she had no place to go, made our way to Georgia the place that I call home. Had ourselves a good life, a preacher man he said until the spring of 45 and the trouble that it brang.

I’m afraid of dying but I’d lay down my life, for you. Honey I’m afraid of dying but Id lay down my life for you…


I ain’t much for hating and Lord knows that’s the truth, until they took my baby well hating is all I do, Now I’m a wanted man, I killed all of them I can, I took the path less traveled I hope you understand, I ask that you forgive I know not what I did, they strap this noose around my neck and grant me my last wish…

I’m afraid of dying but I’d lay down my life, for you. Honey I’m afraid of dying but Id lay down my life for you…
