Bucky Wow! Is this rock, alternative, country, blues, americana? I think a little bit of each. Great vocals remind me of someone but I can't wrap my mind around it. Down home nostalgic alt/country flavored rock n roll. Favorite track: I Think About You.

I had a talk with the voice inside I sat him down so I could look him straight in the eye   I asked him why he's knockin, always knockin at my door He said man, cuz your throwin it all away You're zombie walkin to your job each day to plug yourself in, another gear in the machine Leaving you dreams behind to walk down the assembly line Of people who tried and now are wearin the warning signs Why Wait Why wade Why must you wade In a sea of sorrow   Why Wait Why must you Wait Why Wait Until Tomorrow Your walking down a dead end street Chasing those dollar bills for the illusions that they buy Now your always worried their gonna take our toys away when its those toys that are wrapping you up in chains   An image eats you up inside Under that tombstone without the chance to plant your seed you gotta leave em with something to keep'em comin back to keep'em smilin when your buried, dead and gone Why Wait Why wade Why must you wade In a sea of sorrow   Why Wait Why must you Wait Why Wait Until Tomorrow... Start living your life today You can't wait until tomorrow Those birthday candles, they only burn for so long Stop dragging your heart and let it lead the way Let it shine on to keep your soul from goin blind Why Wait Why wade Why must you wade In a sea of sorrow   Why Wait Why must you Wait Why Wait Until Tomorrow... Start living your life today

I went walkin by the river by the sky high piles of sand I ask the hard hat wearin man about his dream his master plan Those aren't just piles of sand, he said, there big piles of gold They're gonna feed some mouths, move idle hands, move us up the totem pole They'll even grease some palms if you wanna play some ball... In the big leagues with the big boys smokin fat cigars Just loosen your belt son Mmmmm... got the Frac Sand Blues Three states to the East further down the rabbit hole The waters on fire, the cost is higher while mother earths stands alone They stick her with a needle they sodomize her soil Pollute the blood of your unborn child in the name of a dollar bill But hey at least you got a job and a fist to fight the war... With those Persians and the terror and your empty tanks Are you scared yet? Mmmmm... got the Frac Sand Blues Mmmmm... got the Frac Sand Blues I went to raise my hand a couple questions on my mind They sent trade secrets, jigsaw puzzles, more wool for my eyes I followed all the green and the puppets tagged for sale Its all about money its only sunny on the their side of capitol hill I can see our children with an empty glass and empty tears... Maybe you would too if you took those dollar signs out of your eyes Mmmmm... got the Frac Sand Blues Mmmmm... got the Frac Sand Blues

Middle finger standing tall Another bad day Lost my head in another black cloud And I'm losing sanity   So I close my eyes And try to make it alright Page through the scrapbook up in my mind and I think of the good times I have with my friends I have with my family when I'm at home With arms open wide You are there for me when I    think    about you I    think    about you I start to smile and the sun shines down And I think about you   Another cold beer in my hand i remember those nights around the campfire and laughing like hell until we saw the light   The fire crackled and burned Smoke filled the air Another deep breathe another sigh of relief With the people I care for Like my friends Like my family when I'm at home With arms open wide You are there for me when I I    think    about you I    think    about you I start to smile and the sun shines down And I think about you There's a flame in my heart That always burns when we're apart It shines a light, shows a way through the darkness Back to where it starts With my friends With my family back at home With arms open wide You are there for me when I    think    about you I    think    about you I start to smile and the sun shines down And I think about you I    think    about you I    think    about you I start to smile and the sun shines down And I think about you I    think    about you I    think    about you I    think    about you I    think    about you

I saw her there in a hospital bed wearing needles and flat on her back An independent woman facing the unknown And I watched as the tears rolled down her pale white face as she struggles to say Its not like me to be out of control   Then I stare at the floor and I say Its gonna be alright But i can see a storm is brewin' in her eyes I hope she's up for the fight   When the rain start pourin' Even sturdy mountains can't stay dry When the rain starts pourin Just hold on 'til them black clouds pass you by, and you'll find some blue sky The pile of bills on the kitchen table is starting to climb Her bodies not the only hand out to get her And she knows that her only daughter needs a mom, she sees the want in her eyes but her hands are tied until she feels better   I stare at the floor and I say Its gonna be alright But i can see a storm is brewin' in her eyes I hope she's up for the fight When the rain start pourin' Even sturdy mountains can't stay dry When the rain starts pourin Just hold on 'til them black clouds pass you by, and you'll find some blue sky Only God knows why Good people suffer this way Maybe to see that the bluest skies come after rain Stand up to the pain When the rain start pourin' Even sturdy mountains can't stay dry When the rain starts pourin Just hold on 'til them black clouds pass you by, and you'll find some blue sky When the rain stops pourin' When the rain stops pourin' When the rain stops pourin' When the rain stops pourin' Yeah You'll find some blue sky

Out with some friends I'd be the 5th wheel back in the rear They'd all have hands to hold while I'd just wanna disappear I 'm sick of the grind and waking up alone each and every day I keep wearin a smile cuz a know I'm gonna find someone someday Then one night a new years party in a big blue house Facin' another countdown standin all by myself Then I saw you there, over there my heart just started to glow Cuz when its real man awe you just know And now its you and me baby, I've never been so in love Love our time together but lately its never enough I'm all warm inside the butterflies are restless and they're havin' there way Give me your hand pretty baby we'll start our lives over today Lets take a walk Lets take a walk now Fast forward to today when I woke and I saw your face When the sun hits your eyes it takes me to another place I gotta pinch myself when you walk through that door at night When I put my arms around you, it feels so right And now its you and me baby, I've never been so in love I love our time together but lately its never enough I'm all warm inside and butterflies are restless and they're havin there way Give me your hand pretty baby we'll start our lives over today Lets take a walk Lets take a walk now I wanna walk the world with you forever by your side I wanna be there with you when the first born opens their eyes We'll get ourselves a big house, fill it with memories Hand in hand together marching through eternity And now its you and me baby, I've never been so in love I love our time together but lately its never enough I'm all warm inside and butterflies are restless and they're havin there way Give me your hand pretty baby we'll start our lives over today Lets take a walk Lets take a walk now Lets take a walk

Used to think that life was the enemy Only there to push me around And the future was rolling like a tumble weed Never gonna be tied down   I walked beside the ghosts of winter Wore many layers to keep out the cold And then you came along with your sun all shinin’ And thawed a heart that was cold Now I can't wait to walk though that door at night To see those pearly whites stretching a mile wide When I see you smile Its like the sun breaking through on a cloudy day When I see you smile I find a place I know I was meant to stay My knees were knockin' on the first day we met My rusty heart turned to chrome Carried away on the deepest breath of pure sweet love any man will ever know   Now I can't wait to walk though that door at night To see those pearly whites stretching a mile wide When I see you smile Its like the sun breaking through on a cloudy day When I see you smile I find a place I know I was meant to stay   Like the brightest star in the sky Your smile it burns in my mind And now the darkest days are over I can fly Now I can't wait to walk though that door at night To see those pearly whites stretching a mile wide When I see you smile Its like the sun breaking through on a cloudy day When I see you smile I find a place I know I was meant to stay When I see you smile When I see you smile When I see you smile When I see you smile

Eyelids feel like anvils in his sweat stained sheets Another morning came too damn soon And his rusty knees are creaking like his old box spring bed Rising to the another week of sweat And through the highs and lows the only ones who ever know are those brown boots and they’re wearing thin If those boots could talk tell of how he walked the walk no complaints, no violins Another day of busting ass a punching bag for the upper class and those talking head whores that are bought and paid for Invisible to a public eye hypnotized to only recognize the spoon fed drama from an unreality show And through the highs and lows the only ones who ever know are those brown boots and they’re wearing thin If those boots could talk tell of how he walked the walk no complaints, no violins He's walking on a treadmill with a hole in his pocket how on earth can he ever get ahead Without his old guitar, his better half and the local bar He's dynamite waiting to explode And through the highs and lows the only ones who ever know are those brown boots and they’re wearing thin If those boots could talk tell of how he walked the walk no complaints, no violins

Heavy on the pillow Your eyes are open wide So much for dreaming The wind is howling tonight Staring at the ceiling Pacing the floor in your mind Can't stop the bleeding Their words carve you up inside When the wind blows When the wind blows softly you'll know When the wind blow baby When the wind blows softly you'll know You hear the whispers You feel the pitchforks they throw with their eyes Your lips are frozen You're trapped in a room full of whys When the wind blows When the wind blows softly you'll know When the wind blow baby When the wind blows softly you'll know So let the black clouds rain Windy mouths and head-shakers will, always have their say But you see they're the ones with the shades pulled down can't feel the sun can't stand the mirror so they blast their gun Never mind them You got job to do When the wind blows When the wind blows softly you'll know When the wind blow baby When the wind blows softly you'll know
