about

"This is a beautifully crafted record that oozes with organic warmth and deep emotions and it is far and away one of the most original and consistently rewarding alt-country records to emerge from the Cincy music scene in some time"

from Adventures Of A Loose Wreck
by Ric Hickey


"A refreshing edge to country/alt rock, soaring melodies and a flair for resonating lyrics...A Good One is Hard to Find, their 2nd album, is Intelligent and passionate."

Track Name: Feathers In My Name
Late at night waves crashing down
The summer sands Hawaiian shirts and all.
Brian and Betty they are dark and drinking
Moon light fire they will soon be sinkin’ low
People always ask me “son, are you crazy? Saw you givin’ ouu your kisses, your hugs…
Next day I’d thought I’d seen ya cry
Your face was pale your tongue it seems quite tired.

But the hana highway takes me from this insanity
If you like to dance and sing them love songs.
You may come along
Pay no mind to what people say
Cause they got their beating hearts and we got ours Light like feathers in my name

Early morn drinkin’ Kona coffee
This sunrise puts my Midwest town to shame
Emily Jane you been on my mind
Drinking and kissin’ through each other’s sacred worlds
The British they are nice and proper like
I come from the land they call the free and they brave.
Where pieces of people try to put things together
Basing everything upon an election day

But the hana Hwy takes me from this insanity
I know you like to dance
And sing them lovesong
You come along. Pay no mind to what people say
Cause they got their beating hearts we got our Namaste
And I kiss you on the forehead and I play you the hit parade and I ask you to be my wife and you say anyways…
Like feathers in our names.
Track Name: A Good One Is Hard To Find
Well a good one of us is hard to find
Most folks say that, they say that these days
But a good love for me I left behind:
Ohio, a place I called my home
Ohio, a place I’ve known so long.

Well I never took myself apart
In big pieces just to give you a half
But I feel all right now that I got smart/ enough
To be good enough to be good enough to become/
Your best friend/can I call ya that?

But can you help me out!
I know you got good in you!
In a world once filled with doubt/we’ve enticed it all
To forget of the pain
Yes I think I will
Forget of the pain…cause I’m coming home

A perfect love one might never find
That’s a falling asleep way of possible dream
And sure Jean Jeanie and these islands want me to treat her so kind
But I’ll love the place, yes the place that I call my momma
Showgirls, showgirls that I spend them twentys on
May I call ya that

But can you help me out!
I know you got good in you!
In a world once filled with doubt/we’ve enticed it all
To forget of the pain
Yes I think I will
Forget of the pain…cause I’m coming home
Track Name: Lonesome Co.
Hold my hand/hold me back/hold my heart and wait for the attack
Be somethin’ steady somethin’ to hang on to
Moments of moments, sunrise to dusk
Thought of our death never encounters us
Feels so heavy to be home with ya’ll again.
Fallin’ from heights, death from above
It’s my human nature always fallin’ in love
Be my ground I know you won’t let me down

So here I come
With a bright light and stage
And you played a role from an olde and a timeless age
When love conquered all found in a man that is just like me
Still I push you away
But you only role on hold on in my
Lonesome Co.

Let’s meet where the wheels hit the road
Cause I swear the more the move the more that you grow.
We don’t count out off the miles we just count on the road
I’ll be the friction at your feet.
You’ll be the wheels glued to my street
Work together call that simple harmony

Here I come
I’ve got a smile upon my face
Rollin’ through town
With all my song my voiced space!
Words that I write they are as honest as I can be
Still I push you away, but you only roll on hold on in my
Roll on hold on in my
Roll on hold on in my
Lonesome Company
Track Name: Farm Song
The ground soft and warm raspberry rooster crow for for dawn
The mina birds sing songs, a hymn for my days work
Papaya Trees for the open see gift goosebumps to be worn
The ground has been the rain’s friend for ten thousand years or more.
For ten thousand years or more.

Look around, look around
Dance, Dance in your ground
The morning sounds of my family farm
They are my swell stereo.

So I dream so lucidly
I dream most every night
That everyone to know and to love is at peace inside
Because I found the importance of just that I got blocks I’ll build upon
The future is yours so live and laugh
So simple like this song.

I tip my hat to you though there are so few of you
The men amongst men, the women to reckon with.
Those that are labeled farmer
Those that are standing taller
Acrobatic in the Orchards
Golden suns and stars you are
Golden suns and stars you are

Look around, look around
Learn to breathe once again, again, again.
For the summer season has much reason
To be our swell stereo.
To be our swell stereo!
Track Name: In The Morning
In the morning when she wakes up
She puts on her makeup
And I swear that looks a lot like you.
And she’s working on her cold stare find me tangled up in her hair
She thinks she might cut it off

Think about it
Wondering when you’re gonna think about
Wondering was it a think to do

Now she’s making sure it’s her voice
And she’s goin’ back on her choice
When do you loose the right to choose

Think about it
Wondering when you’re gonna think about it
Wondering was it the thing to do

Think about it
Wondering when you’re gonna think about it
Wondering was it the thing to do
Wondering was it the thing to do

In the morning when she wakes up
She’s made her mind up
And I swear it looks a lot like you
And I swear it looks a lot like you
Track Name: Circus Parade
Through the rugged rocky mountain terrain
Out came the thunder and the pouring rain
Sara looked onward to where the sun lay singing so bright
There’s a fresh path for you all now to take
If you’d hold me warm I swear I’ll hold a safe
Cause it’s a circus parade

Here lies the hitchhiker’s highway
Where the signs release no names
Johnny promise came out and said “here’s the daunting America”
Out through the sand and the dark and the forestry of this national park
Yes, it’s onward towards another day
Onward, for our circus parade.
So we sing

EwwLalala Ooooo Olde America
EwwLalala Ooooo it’s a Circus Parade
EwwLalala Ooooo Olde America
Yes it’s onward towards another day

When the clowns and all the travelers meet
Call that a sight, what a sight to be
The world’s strongest man carries you for free
The lion tamer’s daughter has got fangs
Just like her mother does
She chases around, her older brothers friends
What a Circus parade

Just outside of Omaha
The street musician was singing loud and proud
And you said what a gift he had, such a simple melody
Deciding to pick him up with his song buzzing just bringt enough
He said the name of the game it is survival and cheers for another day.
And it’s onward for the circus parade.
Track Name: Free As A Bee
It’s time for our good times
It’s our nations independence day uh huh right right
Watch my night go up into vicious flames
Free from my city
Free from the cocaine
Free from a broken hearted lover
We was drivin’ each other up the wall

On my way. It was no good to be with you.
So I’m on my way. On my merriest way

Come here to breathe like a baby
Make sense of my troubled mind it’s trouble trouble all the time
Make sense of a troubled mind. When it’s double trouble all the time
On my way. Now it’s so good to be with you
One my way. I shall be so..

Free so free like a honeybee cause searching for honey is so fine.
The best yes yes the very best on our pursuit towards happiness.
Free so free like a honey bee. Cause searching for honey is so fine!
Track Name: Most Possible Dream
I make my way down the trolly line
Ain’t go much time, I ain’t got much time
Make my way on down the road across the pacific is where I go
The bird flies high but the sheep are low the
The sheep are low so I leave them at home

Down through the Delta where the blues are played
A Mississippi queen stole my blues away
And Jackson smelled of the sweetest pie
So did the road as I said goodbye
I scream goodbye
Uh huh share share
Uh huh share share

Mother mother mother
Sometimes these people scare me
Cause everywhere that I go
You sing glory glory glory

Salsalito I made love to you
Not with my body with my mind instead
Making your way, on down the line
It’s death to be certain we ain’t got much time

Around came the jester with his curly hair
He tells me a joke I as I said him a prayer
And talkin’ to god, to a redwood tree
Take him in for this man is with me

So I run through the desert in the pouring rain
Feeling your freedom and the pouring rain
You ask a man why he lives this way?
There’s a clock that ticks the days away
Laugh the days away
Uh huh share share
Uh huh share share

Darlin’ Darlin’ Darlin’
Sometimes this people scare me
Cause everywhere that I go
There’s a golden sunrise morning
Father father father
Look at where I stand right now
Cause everything that I do
It’s only cause, I swear to god you showed me how

You are the most possible dream
You are the most possible dream
Track Name: Hum Of The Highway
The hum of the highway
On the road or at home
I get it either way
The song from my city lights
Take me to dirty town bars that act all the same
What a fast machine
Chasin’ run away dreams
I keep up, I know always have

1982 was quite the year
and I knew that she had song livin’ deep in her
so I let her breathe, but the time for me is to bleed upon the open page
what a fast machine/the breath that she breathes
We keep up/ we know we always have
We embrace the change we once could never understand

Singing
Good morning sunrise/ good morning Blue Ridge Mountains
Good night red lights you kept me dead for so long
Cause it’s a good life good country song

Shanghi café late tonight
There’s a girl she hates the beat of her young life
Her daddy set up this master plan but she knows she knows the deeds will not fly
She’s only seventeen, chasing fat daddy dreams
She runs away/goes to Mazoola Montana
There she goes to college and one day will start a family

She says “Good morning sunrise, good morning Montana Mountains…”
How’s the day olde Frisco Bay? I’m your city wolf howlin’
Good night red light you kept us dead for so long…
Cause it’s a good life, good travelin’ song.
The Hum of the Highway in a Country song
The Hum of the Highway
Track Name: Pledge Allegiance
I pledge allegiance towards the skyline
And crossin’ the bridge into heartland Kentucky
I pledge Allegiance to the Ohio River
The torrent of my youthful dream

Killing myself to live is no more
Born Again, Born Again
Killing myself to love has been so hard
Home Again, I’m Home again
So come on pretty city
I know you got it in you
Would you care to sing harmony?
Come on pretty city
The days and nights are ready
The river yearns for your company.

I pledge allegiance toward a main street
And troubadours, they talk up their storms
I pledge allegiance toward a Ludlow strip
Where I drink spiked coffee at my favorite café
I pledge my heart to the Arnolds Bar
May the Arnolds forever rest in peace.

Killing myself to live is no more
Born Again. Born Again.
Killing myself to love has been so hard
I’m home again, home again

So come on pretty city
I know you’ve got it in you
Raise raise your empty glasses to the skies
Come on pretty city
The days and nights are ready
Your load’s been heavy, but could ya tell me why?
Could you tell m why?

The river yearns for your company
The rver yearns for your company
The rver yearns for some peace and company!
Yes RIGHT!
Track Name: Radio
I am your radio
Playin soft and low
The songs make you the star
And know exactly who you are
Take my right hand
Use my leg to stand
I’ll give you all I can
Cause you are half of who I am

You breathe in and I breathe out
It’s amazing how it works to form one motion
You moved in while I was movin out
You turned me round we found a new direction

We’ve walked away before, and closed up every door
Now all I want to do
Is be a stand up man, and open all I can
And fix what broke in two, and give all up to you

I am your radio
Playin soft and low
The songs make you the star
And know exactly who you are
Take my right hand
Use my leg to stand
I’ll give you all I can
Cause you are half of who I am

It’s always a surprise, heartbreak mistakes and lies
Now all I want to do
Is be a stand up man, and open all I can
And know what I’ve been through
Has brought it all back to you

I am your radio
Playin soft and low
The songs make you the star
Completely speak to who you are
Take my right hand
Use my leg to stand
I’ll give you all I can
Cause you are half of who I am

You breathe in and I breathe out
It’s amazing how it works to form one motion
