American Twang

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2010

 

Climb aboard there’s no time to waste 

Right on the beat we’re on the case
 

You want more? We’ll give you a taste
 

Here's a little somethin’ comin' your way 

 

So raise your glasses high as the decibels fly

We’re gettin’ down ‘n dirty with American twang

Gettin’ down ‘n dirty with American twang

 

Ya know we’re all creatures of the night

Where only the strong will survive

So stick to your guns ‘n hold on real tight

Better get ready for one hell of a ride

 

And raise your glasses high as the decibels fly

We’re gettin’ down ‘n dirty with American twang

Gettin’ down ‘n dirty with American twang 


Well it may be hard for some to swallow
But we promise it won’t leave ya hollow
Though you might not remember it tomorrow
You gotta lead get out the way or follow


And raise your glasses high as the decibels fly

We’re gettin’ down ‘n dirty with American twang

Gettin’ down ‘n dirty with American twang

We’re gettin’ down ‘n dirty

Gettin’ down ‘n dirty 

Gettin’ down ‘n dirty with American twang

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2011

 

If ya dance with your devils you’ll go down in flames 

Unless you heed these words we say 

So pay the price bring your friends

‘N we’ll wash away all your dirty little sins 

Cos’ all ya gotta do is believe… 

Fall down on your knees…

Ask and ye shall receive…

 

We’re havin’ us a rock ‘n roll revival

Singin’ verse from a honky tonk bible

Preachin’ a bit of that rhythm & blues

We’re gonna rock the hell outta you  

 

Wanna go to heaven better listen up

We’re bangin’ ‘n twangin’ righteous stuff

We may be crucified savin’ your souls

But we’ve all been baptized in agave gold

Now all ya gotta do is believe…

Fall down on your knees…

Ask and ye shall receive…

 

We’re havin’ us a rock ‘n roll revival

Singin’ verse from a honky tonk bible

Preachin’ a bit of that rhythm & blues

We gonna rock the hell outta you 

We gonna rock the hell outta you

Can I get a witness!

 

We’re havin’ us a rock ‘n roll revival

Singin’ verse from a honky tonk bible

Preachin’ a bit of that rhythm & blues

We gonna rock the hell outta you

We gonna rock the hell outta you

We gonna rock away all your blues

Keep On Pourin’ (Till I Say When)

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2010

 

 

Keep on pouring till’ I say when

Cuz sometimes ya know ya just can’t win

And God’s too busy to care if I sin

So Keep on pouring till’ I say when

 

Straight up It’s time to kick a few back 

Cool down with something in a tall glass   

Fell off this wagon ‘n landed under the wheels 

Can’t breathe ‘n chest is getting tighter 

As smoke ring halo’s rise up from the fire 

Slow dancing to a lonely pedal steel 

 

So keep on pouring till’ I say when  

Cuz sometimes ya know ya just can’t win 

And God’s too busy to care if I sin 

So keep on pouring till’ I say when

 

Life is a long walk on a short pier

Weatherman says it’s gonna be clear

I think the forecast is callin’ for rain

Hell hounds are barkin’ outside the door

Face down but feelin’ like I need one more

No pain no gain, least that’s what they say

 

So keep on pouring till’ I say when 

Cuz sometimes ya know ya just can’t win 

And God’s too busy to care if I sin 

So keep on pouring till’ I say when 

 

Keep on pouring till’ I say when  

Cuz sometimes ya know ya just can’t win

And God’s too busy to care if I sin  

So keep on pouring till’ I say…   

Keep on pouring till’ I say when 

Cuz sometimes ya know ya just can’t win 

And God’s too busy to care if I sin 

So keep on pouring till’ I say

Keep on pouring till’ I say 

Keep on pouring till’ I say when

Gasoline Alley

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2011

 

They’re bellowing ash from their smoke stack religion

Black as Folgers coffee ‘n straight from hell’s kitchen

Chokin’ on the exhaustive syllables ‘n sounds

And exhale a sigh as I roll my eyes around

 

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions

But this barren stretch of highway is littered with their wreckage

As their shadow reads like poetry rotting at your feet 

Pollute the atmosphere and the air that we all breathe, can’t you see if you…

 

Cut across gasoline alley, cut across find your way

Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation Dsus2 reigns

Cut across gasoline alley, cut across save your life

Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation lies

 

The moon floats like a pearl in a sky as black as ink   

Like a lonely flare that cuts the night above a blacktop sea

As the buzzards start circlin’ right above your head

Cos’ there ain’t no signs of life they’ll even take you dead, so check your head … before you…

 

Cut across gasoline alley, cut across find your way

Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation reigns

Cut across gasoline alley, cut across save your life

Cut across gasoline alley, that’s where salvation lies

Salvation lies

Hey Bartender

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2010

 

It’s a shame, shame, ain’t it a pity, we lost ourselves somewhere along the way

So we say hey, hey bartender, pour us a river to wash our sins away

 

We’re a twisted and torn bunch of vagabonds   

Soakin’ our bones in this rusty graveyard    

Just trying to kill our demons & heal our scars 

Smilin’ a grin like a Cheshire cat

Howlin’ at the moon ‘n runnin’ with the pack

Sooner or later our train gon’ run off track

 

And It’s a shame, shame, ain’t it a pity, we lost ourselves somewhere along the way

So we say hey, hey bartender, pour us a river to wash our sins away

 

Well it’s so damn hard to catch our breath

When our mouths are dry from cigarette ash

And the words we try to speak rise and fall flat

So lets get together ‘n brew a wicked spell      

Then we could run for cover to the edge of hell

It’s so damn close we could hear all our friends yell

 

And it’s a shame, shame, ain’t it a pity, we lost ourselves somewhere along the way

So we say hey, hey bartender, pour us a river to wash our sins away

 

It’s a shame, shame, ain’t it a pity, we lost ourselves somewhere along the way

So we say hey, hey bartender, pour us a river to wash our sins away 

Shame, Shame, ain’t it a pity!

End Of My Rope

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2011

 

 

I toss ‘n turn can’t get no sleep ‘n keep risin’ to the ghost in my head 

Down in a hole yeah I’m sick for the cure I light a smoke cos’ I got it real bad 

It makes me shiver ‘n it makes me shake I got chills up ‘n down my spine 

They say salvation comes to those in need but I’ve never been the prayin’ kind, but 

 

Oh Lordy feelin’ mighty stoned 

Danglin’ down at the end of my rope 

Send me an angel come save my soul 

Danglin’ down at the end of my-y-y, end of my rope

 

Shot down with fever that’s burnin’ me up I hear the devil he’s laughin’ at me

I swallow the sun it burns my blood but I just can’t let it bleed

I’m hangin’ on by a thread and the hope that tomorrow’ll be a better day

They say salvation comes to those in need but I’ve never had allot of faith, but…

 

Oh Lordy feelin’ mighty stoned

Danglin’ down at the end of my rope

Send me an angel come save my soul

Danglin’ down at the end of my-y-y, end of my rope

 

Oh Lordy feelin’ mighty stoned 

Danglin’ down at the end of my rope 

Send me an angel come save my soul 

Danglin’ down at the end of my rope 

 

Oh Lordy feelin’ mighty stoned

Danglin’ down at the end of my rope

Send me an angel come save my soul

Danglin’ down at the end of my-y-y, end of my rope

End of my-y-y, end of my rope

End of my-y-y, end of my rope

Drunk Like Me

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI © 2011

 

 

Last night I ran into Jeckyl ‘n Hyde  

They gave me a potion ‘n told me sweet lies   

Then I woke up this mornin’ in the lost & found  

Grabbed some cold pizza washed down with warm beer

Stubbled outside to get my head clear

I think I got a touch of what’s goin’ round

 

I got beer on my boots got a tear in my eye 

Gettin’ dirty looks ‘n I don’t know why 

Anyone would fall in love with a drunk like me 

Could anyone fall in love with a drunk like me?  

 

Somebody call me a doctor find me a cure

Cuz my heart is poundin’ ‘n my liver hurts

But let me tell ya what I have figured out

I like tequila cold with salt ‘n lime

Beer is best when it’s cheap ‘n light

Served up with a soundtrack by Ghostowne 

 

I got beer on my boots got a tear in my eye 

Gettin’ dirty looks ‘n I don’t know why

Anyone would fall in love with a drunk like me   

Could anyone fall in love with a drunk like me?  

 

Grabbed some cold pizza washed down with warm beer

Stubbled outside to get my head clear

Think I got a touch of what’s goin’ round

So call me a doctor gotta find me a cure

Cuz my heart is poundin’ ‘n my liver hurts

But let me tell ya what I have figured out

 

I got beer on my boots got a tear in my eye 

Gettin’ dirty looks ‘n I don’t know why 

Anyone would fall in love with a drunk like me 

Could anyone fall in love with a drunk like me?   

Could anyone fall in love? 

Could anyone fall in love? 

Could anyone fall in love with a drunk like me?

Let Sleepin’ Dogs Lie

Words & Music: Steven Wells

Drunk Mosquitoes BMI 2011

 

Up to my neck in the desert sand the air’s so hot that it just might crack 

Dehydrated ‘n my lips are chapped feels like I’m drownin’ on dry land

 

Love is thicker than blood and I know we’ll stand as one

 

So ya betta get ready for one hell of a fight

Ya shoulda let them sleeping dogs lie

Come hell or high-water it’s the end of the line

Shoulda let them sleepin’, shoulda let them sleepin’ dogs lie

 

There’s a storm brewin’ n’ it’s movin’ fast better run for cover ‘n watch my ass

Baptism of fire in the workin’ class feels like I’m drownin’ on dry land

 

Love is thicker than blood and I know we’ll stand as one

 

So ya betta get ready for one hell of a fight 

Ya shoulda let them sleeping dogs lie

Come hell or high-water it’s the end of the line

Shoulda let them sleepin’, ya shoulda let them sleepin’ dogs lie

Shoulda let them sleepin’, ya shoulda let them sleepin’ dogs lie

 

Like an animal that’s been caught in a trap there’s no escaping that deadly grasp

So damn funny I forgot to laugh and it feels like I’m drownin’ on dry land

 

Love is thicker than blood and I know we’ll stand as one

 

So ya betta get ready for one hell of a fight 

Ya shoulda let them sleeping dogs lie

Come hell or high-water it’s the end of the line

Ya shoulda let them sleepin’, shoulda let them sleepin’ dogs lie

Ya shoulda let them sleepin’, shoulda let them sleepin’ dogs lie

Shoulda let them sleepin’, shoulda let them sleepin’ lie

Your soul’s so pure it glows

Selfless and wonderful  

Blessed are we who you know

From the cradle to the grave 

 

Cos’ the angels sent you down from above

To guide and shelter all of us 

And they’re sayin’ great job kid, well done

Now we’re callin’ you home 

Yeah, so come on home 

 

Touched by a love devine  

Kindness behind those eyes   

Laughter filled days ‘n nights  

From the cradle to the grave  

 

Cos’ the angels sent you down from above   

To guide and shelter all of us 

And they’re sayin’ great job kid, well done 

Now we’re callin’ you home 

Yeah, so come on home

 

Now your body needs to rest  

We’ll love you always, no regrets  

You’ve given more than we could ask  

From the cradle to the grave 

 

Cos’ the angels sent you down from above   

To guide and shelter all of us 

And they’re sayin’ great job kid, well done 

Now we’re callin’ you home 

Yeah, so come on home

 

Cos’ the angels sent you down from above  

To guide and shelter all of us 

And they’re sayin’ great job kid, well done

We’re callin’ you home

Yeah, we’re callin’ you home C – G…
