–Lyrics– (Choruses in Bold)

Stuck in traffic in a greyhound bus
I’m headin down to New Orleans
I’m pretty tired of all the
Tough times and grindin
I’m goin out of my mind
I can’t stay here

Let’s get real let’s remember
Everything dies in November
So let’s just take our time
and grab a beer
Relax and don’t worry
Bad things happen when ya hurry
And we don’t plan to find
no trouble here
Here in New Orleans

Country music on the
radio station I’m
Crossin the nation
With my friends
Sippin whiskey
and tellin crazy stories
And dreamin of the time
We’ll meet again

Almost to Louisiana
Left my dream’s back in Indiana
so let’s just take our time
and grab a beer
Relax and don’t worry
Bad things happen when you hurry
and everything is fine
no trouble here
Here in New Orleans

Lost in the rays of another
Sunny day I know I
May never drift this far again
But ol New Orleans here to free my soul
Don’t blow this Southern state of mind
My friend

Let’s get real let’s remember
Everything dies in November
So let’s just take our time
and grab a beer
Relax and don’t worry
Bad things happen when ya hurry
And we don’t plan to find
no trouble here
Here in New Orleans

Whiskey All Over You

–Lyrics– (Choruses in Bold)

All bottled up.
So you reach for a glass.
Bartender grabs me and spins my cap
I’m whiskey……., I’m here to soothe.

The more he pour.
Well the more you laugh.
Dance up a storm
Until the jukebox crash
I’m Whiskey……., I’ll make you move.

When it all goes south
I keep the world goin ’round
I’m whiskey…….

Double shots, with a couple new friends
Start to forget what kind of trouble you’re in.
I’m Whiskey……., I cure the blues

You’re get’n loud, on a rowdy path
Startin to cuss, Lord you never do that.
I’m whiskey….., unfiltered truth.

Open your mouth and spill it out
I’m whiskey……

–Solo–

I’m in your hair
And All over your lap.
Spilt on the floor
And you’re all over the map.
I’m whiskey…., All over you

We don’t black out.
We just have memory lapse.
Drunk dial’n friends
while you wait for a cab
I’m whiskey……, you’ll regret me soon.

Wake up n’ morn, just kissin the throne
I’m whiskey……

– Solo –

They call me jim
Some call me Jack
I mean no harm
But I catch a bad wrap
I’m frisky….., I get you loose.

Charred up , aged
And sour mashed.
Hang around long enough
And we’ll kick some ass.
I’m whiskey, and I got the proof.

Come tomorrow, let’s do it again.
Uncork the evil, Sedate your sin.
Maybe We Lose but Maybe we win
Drinkin whiskey…………

–Solo–

Come tomorrow, let’s do it again.
Uncork the evil, Sedate your sin.
Maybe We Lose but Probly we win
Drinkin whiskey…………

Lyrics:

I think my heart is sleeping
Just like everyone I know
There is a sound in the hallway
but I know nobody’s home
I’m like that smile you’ve been wearin round town
I’m like the fire that keeps you warm
But when you leave me here in pieces
I know I’ll never be alone

I’m done but not leavin
Everything I need for livin
Your love it was number one
I’m tired but not greavin
Everything I need for livin
Your love it was number one

Sometimes I’m lost in reflection
Sometimes everything is wrong
Sometimes every day is a mystery
And sometimes every night’s a song
You’ve got diamonds on your hands and feet
You’ve got my music in your soul
And Every breath I need for livin
Comes in hot and leaves me cold

Your love is hidin in me
Waitin for somethin set me free
I just keep dreaming of the sun
Feels like my like has just begun

Drown – Demo

Lyrics:

You hold the answer
To what I believe
Quietly holding
My heart on your sleeve
If I were to bend
‘Cause the wind won’t relent
You’re holding me up
From what I intend-ed to be

Don’t let me Drown
Don’t let me Drown
I’m further from ground
Don’t let me drown
alt (but you’re safe and sound)

Thrown from the wreckage
and lost out at sea
calling your name
to come back for me
the sky opens up
and the rains falling down
I feel your presence
But you’re not around

Come back come back
come back for me
The door’s locked up tight
but you have the key

Homeward Bound – Demo

Lyrics & Music by Rob Doty, Colin Clark & Jeff Stigelman

I keep ridin but I can’t catch up
And these old roads won’t give enough
I never knew that I had drifted too far
So I just ride heavy with a broken heart
She spent her summer down in Tennessee
I think that girl took a piece of me
There’s hardly a minute when she crosses my mind
when i don’t feel that I was left behind

And I can’t break down
cause I hate this town
No I can’t break down
cause she’s homeward bound

Well I ain’t never been in love before
I had a taste and I can’t take no more
I drink whiskey on Saturday nights
I drown my sorrows in the neon lights
Fill my hours with dust and smoke
Workin overtime and I’m almost broke
I face the sunshine of another day
She’s been gone since half past May

And I can’t break down
cause I hate this town
No I can’t break down
cause she’s homeward bound

This old dirt that I’ve been livin on
It’s been in the family since ‘51
The clouds seem closer I don’t know why
She says she’s headin home in late july
I ain’t got nothin but this old guitar
Torn-up notebook and a beat-up car
When the Autumn winds start to loosen my slack
It’s starting to look like she ain’t comin back

And I can’t break down
cause I hate this town
No I can’t break down
cause I’m homeward bound

Taking it All Back (new song)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any new music, but I had a chance last night to record a song at Primary Sound Studios, so I thought this would be the perfect thing to post to kind of revitalize this site. (you may have also noticed I redesigned the site, it’s not finished… it’s never finished)

Lyrics

There’s a ghost in the room
There’s a joke in my head
A scratch on my wire
A face in my bed
And everyone knows
What’s happened to me
Everyone sees
My face is all red

There’s a story round town
I killed my best friend
I tore out the pages
of my bible and said
look at me!
All these things I have done
it’s not so easy
so I turn away instead

There’s no fuel in my fire
when the wind blows hard
there’s no water in spain
when my boat runs dry
please don’t laugh
when the moon turns black
because if you do
I might break down and cry

There’s a bird in the trees
and a stench in the air
There’s a secret about me
that everyone knows
I’d take it all back
If it wasn’t so bad
I’d take it all back
If you’d let me go

If you’d all forget
the things you have seen
If you’d cut out your tongues
and cover your eyes
I’d take it all back
and sleep in my room
I’d take it all back
Just to show my surprize
