Steve Morse from The Boston Globe, says, " Music for the sheer pleasure of it... effervescent harmonies and melodic nirvana." ... more

Track Name: Scenic two-lane
They ran out of fuel in the kingdom
kid flagged me down for change
so I drove him up to the station
and his momma looked so ashamed

Back country boy says go find me
on a dirt bike going over 90
howlin' in the rain, down the scenic 2 lane

He's got trouble back home in St J
He don't think too much of the place
school ain't his scene, barely 14
lord the scars on his arms around and his face

Back country boy says go find me
on a dirt bike going over 90
howlin' in the rain, down the scenic 2 lane

paid the attendant while the kid filled a can
I got to thinking about
If he gets older what'll be left to lose
but the benefit of the doubt

at the roadside mama was waiting
enough in the tank to ignite
sky was turning grey, not much to say
but looks like another stormy night

Back country boy says out run me
on a dirt bike pushing 120
howlin' in the rain down the scenic 2 lane
Track Name: Get Through
all these sunday drivers how am I ever gonna get home?
they can play all day buffalo they gotta roam
put ‘em behind in the rear view
don't wanna say get outta the way
honey but I gotta get through

all these loose lips talkin' how am I ever gonna get free?
i’m a dead man walkin' if I don't make it to the sea
gonna wash me clean gotta get home to you
don't wanna say get out of the way

tell me what you really mean
or witness my departure from this scene
sure would like to say goodbye to

all these frequent fliers on their roamin' phones
they can check all day but there's something that I know
i don't want that , what can I do
don’t wanna say get out of the way
honey, but I gotta get through
Track Name: Queen Mary of the bar
Would the owner of a bold, imperious soul please move along
your heart is double parked, anyone can see it don't belong
taking up two spaces, beauty can't erase the little lines that you disregard 

your grandiosity unsettles me Queen Mary of the bar
It's plain illegal Mary, yer regal bearings no excuse to 
play him like a pawn, running up and down the lawn just to amuse you
he could be your knight in armor shining bright if you let him
take the game that far
as for me I've got no strategy Queen Mary of the bar


That piece of work you found, king of another round
not fit to touch the ground that you tread upon
If you get overthrown let the truth be known 
someone would drive you home in their subway car
Queen Mary of the bar

Danger never mind, your hazel eyes are kind and so you wed him
he’d be loyal as a steed, you'd never find the need to behead him
if you're the requester he could be the jester strumming on this funny old guitar
just name the time and call the tune Queen Mary of the bar
Step off the thrown and do it soon Mary of the bar
