about

We’re excited to announce the 1st of a three-part, best-of, re-recordings, trio-trilogy (starting with Volume 2 - 2003-2014). Sounds confusing eh? Think of it like Star Wars. You know, all out of order. And why you ask? Well, sometimes songs don’t get a fair shake. Sometimes they get stranded, lost or out grow themselves overtime, or become something new. These are a few songs that have taken on such a new life in the last 7 years that we thought it would be cool to share these newer versions with you. It all began when I’d started multi-tracking rehearsals. The result is live off-the-floor bed tracks with a few overdubs. It’s been about 7 years playing as a trio with Davide Direnzo & Mark Mcintyre and we really have become something of a ouija board when it comes to reading each other. I’m so lucky to play with these astonishing players and great guys. The trio has grown to include floating members Rob Carli, Chris Malleck and Ben Rollo and it’s become something of a family to me. You won’t find better players, funnier guys or inspiring gentlemen. It’s with great pride I present these new/old tracks and some fun photos from the last 7 years. And what better day to release it on than Bowie’s birthday (who released a surprise album a year ago today too).

Track Name: Who's Gonna Miss You? 2018
You can climb a mountain, you can swim the sea.
Or find a cure to some disease.
Or break every record in the book ya see (yeah)
But who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Did ya live it right, did ya live it wrong?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?

You can carve a statue, and stand it tall.
And hang your painting on a wall.
Press your hands in wet cement.
But who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?

You can come in first, be the best!
Win the lotto, ace the test.
Ya can line all them awards all up in a row.
But who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?

Did ya live it right, did ya live it wrong?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?

Pop the question, cut the cake.
Pop the cork, and consummate.
Plant yourself a little family tree (yeah)
But who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?

You can write a hit, and be a star.
Ride around in a big long car.
And everybody reaching to touch your hand.
But who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?

Ah! Did ya live it right, did ya live it wrong?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?

They took you home now.
Up to that Big House.
Because it's where you long to go.
Now I recall where, you 'was' a good friend.
The wind will always blow.
So I say, ooh ooh ooh ooh

The church bells ring, and the sky turns grey
And that big black hearse roooolls away
And everybody tries to walk away

I'm gonna miss ya when you're gone
I'm gonna miss ya when you're gone
Everyday, and all day looong
I'm gonna miss ya when you're gone

Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Did ya live it right, did ya live it wrong?

I'm gonna miss ya when you're gone
Track Name: Wish Willy 2018
I drop anchor, I settle in
Get on my bike and I'm back again
Christmas lights on a bamboo tree
I didn't even know it was Christmas Eve
I don't want turkey and ginger ale
I tak a rum punch and a lobster tail
Rice and beans, the island queen
The best damn Christmas I ever seen

Nicholas, Nicholas, tell me,
have you been a dread from ever since
Step light, you better act right
Don't let the judge lock you up tonight
Don't let the judge lock you up tonight

Ooh
Wish Willy, oh Wish Willy
Cookin' up a storm by the sunset sea
Wish Willy, I wish I was Willy
Make sure you say to hi to Willy for me

Hey!

I got some good friends and a bad guitar
I got a case of beer on my handlebars
I heard the countdown out in the streets
I didn't even know it was New Year's Eve (Here we go)
I pass Sid's hear the chicken fry
I pass the Duchy on the left hand side
I'm at the Split with Marie Sharp
She's burnin' me up, she's breaking my heart

Oh, Norman, Norman,
I hear you got a boat and an engine
Step light, throw your nets right
Don't let the judge lock you up tonight
Don't let the judge lock you up tonight

Wish Willy, oh Wish Willy
Cookin' up a storm by the sunset key
Wish Willy, I wish I was Willy
Make sure you say to hi to Willy for me

Hey!

Wish Willy, oh Wish Willy
Cookin' up a storm by the sunset sea
Wish Willy, I wish I was Willy
Make sure you say to hi to Willy for...
Wish Willy, oh Wish Willy
Cookin' up a storm by the sunset caye
Wish Willy, I wish I was Willy
Make sure you say to hi to Willy for me
Track Name: This Feeling 2018
5-4-3-2-1 let's go now
I push through the crowd it's new year's eve
I'm a stranger here in a far land
And a punta rock band rocks punta beats
Baby food jars, broken maracas
Roadside trash and the power fails
Dead air swims through radio waves now
Through coral gardens and under water caves

I just got this feeling
Like I never got before
Yeah you got me reeling
And coming back for more
Did you just get that feeling
Like you never got before
If this is a mistake I'm just feeling
Then I should make them more

And the school bus crawls
Through pot hole land mines
Through shot up stop signs
And sugar cane
Rosary in the rear view mirror
Rain drop tears and wiper blades
I sit next to an old lady praying
I figure sit next to her I'll be ok
All the way from Bomba to Ladyville
I stow away, I stow away in her faith

But I just got this feeling
Like I never got before
Yeah you got me reeling
And coming back for more
Did you just get that feeling
Like you never got before
If this is a mistake I'm just feeling
Then I should make them more

(solo)

And the thunder clouds are growling
Like they never done before
And them howler monkeys howling
With their implements of war
And a hard hard rain it starts falling
Like it never fell before
If this is a mistake I'm recalling then I should make them more
If this is a mistake I'm recalling then I should make them more
Then I should make them more
Then I should make them more
Track Name: White Lightning 2018
There's a woman counting quarters at the table
There's a gentleman taking tickets at the door
And I'm slipping out tonight
Cuz the moon is yellow bright
And I'm afraid that I don't love her anymore
I heard a song come on a speaker
It said something 'bout slipping out the back
Or making a new plan n' some guy named Stan
Well I said "Thank you Paul for keeping me on my track"

I wish it was 1930 at the old Kentucky derby
And I was riding White Lightning off the bluff
Cuz I need a racehorse and some old rusty spurs
Cuz I can't get away from her fast enough

There's a woman rolling nickels on the counter
There's a man chopping wood outside the door
She said, "Every room is sold"
So I slept out in the cold
And it occurred to me I'd never slept better before
I found a perfect dirty bar room
Full of liars, cheats and losers all around
I said " Gentlemen hold your pistols
I'm just here to wet my whistle
And forget that woman I left back in town"

I wish it was 1930 at the old Kentucky derby
And I was riding White Lightning off the bluff
Cuz I need a racehorse and some old rusty spurs
Cuz I can't get away from her fast enough

You ever tell yourself a lie so many times
That you convince yourself that it's true
Well I don't regret a single thing in my life
But I curse the day that I ran into you

I wish it was 1930 at the old Kentucky derby
And I was riding White Lightning real rough
Cuz I need a racehorse and some old rusty spurs
Cuz I can't get away from her fast enough
I just can't get away from her fast enough
I just can't get away from her fast enough
Track Name: Tennessee Tobacco 2018
Well she came into my doorway like a whirlwind
Dragging mud and muck across my floor
She sat down in the chair where I was sitting
Picked up my guitar and made a chord

And she said, "your loves like Tennessee Tobacco
And it's killing me and all I want it more
Your hearts a lonely little chapel
But I love it's dusty pews and creaky floors"

And she said, "Babe, did you forget today is Friday?
And you promised that you'd take me to a show"
I said, "I swear the TV said that it was Monday"
And she kicked my shin and walked right out the door

She took my car and drove down to the legion
Grinding all the gears as she drove
She said, "the old guys there know how to treat a lady
And by the way your car got towed"

I said, "Your loves like Tennessee Tobacco
And it's killing me and all I want is more
Your hearts a lonely little chapel
But I love it's dusty pews and creaky floors"

Well I try my best and I swear I do
And my best is all I know
And I'll never leave this one horse town
If you decide to hang around

Well I found her in the morning at the table
Hungover and staring at her spoon
And I tried to make some cakes on the griddle
She just laughed and sang her little tune

And she said, "your loves like Tennessee Tobacco
And it's killing me and all I want it more
Your hearts a lonely little chapel
But I love it's dusty pews and creaky floors"

I said, "Your loves like Tennessee Tobasco
And it's killing me and all I want is more
Your hearts a lonely little chapel
But I love it's dusty pews and creaky floors"
Track Name: Perfect 2018
I got halfway to the canyon
And all the stars were shining bright
Your polaroid on the dashboard
It kept me going through the night
So don't wait up, just rest your eyes
'Cause I can't rush this beautiful ride

Nobody move, this is perfect
It's just like you

I saw the sun c-c-crash in the ocean
And all the vampires on their way
All the pretty girls spill tanning lotion
And they scatter in the rain

And my walkman sang my favorite song
In this perfect light I can't go wrong

Nobody move, this is perfect
It's just like you

I'm counting the drop that ran down the window
The constellation of broken glass
And all the stars fell like disco
and I woke up in your lap
Track Name: Midnight Train 2018
I recall the day
The temperature in town
I never felt that way
The day you said you would be mine
But after years of
It's been tugging at our flame
Is there something i don't know?
Because you don't look at me the same

So i'm leaving on a midnight train
I'm leaving on a midnight train
If you don't call my name
I'm leaving on a midnight train

A razor and a blade
I got my toothbrush and my comb
I made my great escape
And now i'm all alone

So i'm leaving on a midnight train
I'm leaving on a midnight train
If you don't call my name
I'm leaving on a midnight train

I'm standind at the gate
I got my ticket in my hand
I'm praying you're just late
I still don't understand
I sank into my seat
It was so
We slowly pulled away
And no one called my name

So i left on a midnight train
I left on a midnight train
No one called my name
So i left on a midnight train

Then i heard a voice
Is this seat right here free?
Mmm, she said you get no choice
And now she's curled up here with me

She bought a ticket for a midnight train
She left on a midnight train
She called out my name
We left on a midnight train

A midnight train (fade out)
Track Name: Love You For Miles 2018
You took a picture
Of my crooked smile
I was so full of liquor
There is no denial
I laughed when I saw it
I said take one again

I will love you for miles
I will love you for miles
I will love you for miles
Until this road ends

I took her picture
But not of her face
'Cause I love your fingers
Every wrinkle and trace
You sighed when you saw it
You said "they look old"
I said

I will love you for miles
I will love you for miles
I will love you for miles
Until this road ends

I went to a psychic
When I got nothing from prayer
I need a glimpse of the future
To see if you're there
I gazed into her crystal
She said "what do you see?"
I said

I will love her for miles
I will love her for miles
I will love her for miles
Or until this road ends
