about

Do you remember the first time you heard live bluegrass music? Maybe it came through a crackly radio broadcast, or in the distance at a campground where the music was being played. If you were lucky, it happened in the cool night air with the popping of campfires and the smell of wood smoke to accompany the aggressive strains of the banjo, mandolin, and fiddle.

When I hear The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys I’m taken back to when I first fell in love with this music. Each is a master of their craft, but it’s the special joy they take in playing it “the old time way” that commands your attention. This music hails from a time before people saw bluegrass and country music as separate things, and the band accomplishes that most difficult of musical tasks by capturing the manic energy of their live shows in the studio.

A recent European tour cemented the fact that audiences of every type respond to their passionate and heartfelt portrayals of these first iterations of bluegrass music. People reacted like they had never heard music like this before, and perhaps they hadn’t. And the band loved them back. You know, Europeans know a thing or two about old stuff.

In fact, I’m not completely sure that a couple of these boys wouldn’t take a one-way passage back to the ‘50s if given the chance. Be glad, instead, that they are here and now, and we can all enjoy the ride.

Track Name: I Can't Go On This Way
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - I Can't Go On This Way

When you left me you said you'd return dear
You said that you'd be back some day
Oh please let me hear from you darlin’
I just can't go on this a way

I know you never did love me but I thought that you would dear someday
Oh please let me hear from you darlin’
I just can't go on this a way

Remember the good times together
You said that you'd love me so true
As I sit here the stars hover o'er me
There's a love in my heart dear for you

I know you never did love me but I thought that you would dear someday
Oh please let me hear from you darlin’
I just can't go on this a way

I know you never did love me but I thought that you would dear someday
Oh please let me hear from you darlin’
I just can't go on this a way
I just can't go on this a way

Track Name: Are You Homesick In Carolina
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - Are You Homesick In Carolina

Are you homesick in Carolina
With no one to hold on to
I went and left all my dreams behind me for a love I thought was true
Are you feeling all alone or tell me if you've found somebody new
Are you homesick in Carolina with no one to hold onto

We made some memories in this old house
On a mountain, in Tennessee
Please tell me darlin’, don't you remember
When I asked you to marry me

Are you homesick in Carolina
With no one to hold on to
I went and left all my dreams behind me for a love I thought was true
Are you feeling all alone or tell me if you've found somebody new
Are you homesick in Carolina with no one to hold onto

You're the only one I treasure
You're the only love I find
Please tell me darlin’, won't you come home
From those hills of Caroline

Are you homesick in Carolina
With no one to hold on to
I went and left all my dreams behind me for a love I thought was true
Are you feeling all alone or tell me if you've found somebody new
Are you homesick in Carolina with no one to hold onto

I've tried so hard dear to make you happy
Tried to keep you satisfied
You left no letter upon the table
You never even said goodbye

Are you homesick in Carolina
With no one to hold on to
I went and left all my dreams behind me for a love I thought was true
Are you feeling all alone or tell me if you've found somebody new
Are you homesick in Carolina with no one to hold onto
Are you homesick in Carolina

Track Name: The Honky Tonk Downstairs
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys – The Honky Tonk Downstairs

Well it won't be long now till that ole sun goes down
And darkness seems to hide my shameful tears
My wife works all night long for a man that's half way gone
She's a bar maid in the Honky Tonk downstairs

It's a shame she wears the name of a man that’s locked in chains
To a bottle that's destroyed our hopes and cares
To the man with hungry eyes she works and hides and cries
She's a bar maid in the Honky Tonk downstairs

Well it won't be long now till that ole sun goes down
And darkness seems to hide my shameful tears
My wife works all night long for a man that's half way gone
She's a bar maid in the Honky Tonk downstairs

It's a shame she wears the name of a man that’s locked in chains
To a bottle that's destroyed our hopes and cares
To the man with hungry eyes she works and hides and cries
She's a bar maid in the Honky Tonk downstairs
She's a bar maid in the Honky Tonk downstairs

Track Name: Messing With My Mind
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - Messing With My Mind

You're only messing with my mind you do it all the time now I'm threw with you
We talk all night long until the break of dawn then I find out you're with somebody new

Now you know that I love you
And you know that I've been true
But it don't matter now you're out painting up the town
And I’m tired of messing with you

Now don't you shed a tear it won't matter I won't be here now I'm the one leaving you
Go on out and have your fun my good time has just begun you'll be the one that's lonesome and blue

Now you know that I love you
And you know that I've been true
But it don't matter now you're out painting up the town
And I’m tired of messing with you

Now you know that I love you
And you know that I've been true
But it don't matter now you're out painting up the town
And I’m tired of messing with you
It don't matter now you're out painting up the town
And I’m tired of messing with you

Track Name: The Girl I Denied
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - The Girl I Denied

She was a blonde beauty with ocean blue eyes
Her voice the purist of gold
She was every boy's fancy, the whole county wide
And they longed for her hand just to hold

She could have any feller from miles around
And she chose one that set her heart free
How could I believe that the man with the key to her heart was no other than me?

Her pretty blue eyes still haunt me today
They were filled with teardrops of love
She wanted me so, but I couldn't let go
To a love that I had before

We'd go down to the river, by the feed mill
Skip rocks just her and me
Her heart fell for someone that wasn't real
Like the river, my secrets ran deep

Well she didn't know that I had a love
That had captured my heart, soul, and mind
But the one that I loved had left me for another
To love, my heart turned stoned blind

Her pretty blue eyes still haunt me today
They were filled with teardrops of love
She wanted me so, but I couldn't let go
To a love that I had before

Now as I grow grayer, my mind wonders back
To the blue eyes that I had denied
I loved her so deeply, a true love I had
But I pushed that old true love aside

Her pretty blue eyes still haunt me today
They were filled with teardrops of love
She wanted me so, but I couldn't let go
To a love that I had before

Track Name: Back To The Mountains
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - Back To The Mountains

Lantern hung by the fireplace
The fire was burning low
We talk about the good times
And the winters white with snow
Living in the mountains
A life we know so well
Water from the spring house
And the morning breakfast smell

It's true that I'm growing older
And I'm longing for my childhood days again
I'll soon be going back to the mountains
To a peaceful life and home sweet home again

A bobcat on a mountain side
A lonesome big owl cry
Squirrel playing on a Chestnut log
As a raccoon passes by
The old cow lows
It's milking time
Children's sleepy eyes
The rooster crows as the dawn breaks through the early morning skies

It's true that I'm growing older
And I'm longing for my childhood days again
I'll soon be going back to the mountains
To a peaceful life and home sweet home again

It's true that I'm growing older
And I'm longing for my childhood days again
I'll soon be going back to the mountains
To a peaceful life and home sweet home again
To a peaceful life and home sweet home again

Track Name: Late Last Night
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - Late Last Night

It was late last night when Willie got home, he knocked and he knocked on the door
He danced all night with his new shoes on says he ain't gonna ramble no more

Oh me oh my what's gonna become of me
I went down to town a fooling around
No one to go my bail

Where did u get them patent leather shoes that new dress you wear looks so fine
I got my shoes from a railroad man
My new dress from a rider in the night

Oh me oh my what's gonna become of me
I went down to town a fooling around
No one to go my bail

Well I like the hills ole of West Virginia
I feel right home in Tennessee
North, South, East or West
Is home sweet home to me

Oh me oh my what's gonna become of me
I went down to town a fooling around
No one to go my bail

Oh me oh my what's gonna become of me
I went down to town a fooling around
No one to go my bail

Track Name: Remember Where You Came From
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - Remember Where You Come From

When I was a young boy my daddy would say
Remember where you came from if you ever go away
This world is so big and your life will be long
Remember where you came from you can always go home

You can always go home you can always go back
Back to the old home with Mother and Dad
Live life and love and your life will be long
Remember where you came from you can always go home

Now I'm going back to my home town
Everything is so different as I look around
Mom and Dad are waiting all alone
Waiting for their boy to come back home

You can always go home you can always go back
Back to the old home with Mother and Dad
Live life and love and your life will be long
Remember where you came from you can always go home

You can always go home you can always go back
Back to the old home with Mother and Dad
Live life and love and your life will be long
Remember where you came from you can always go home
Remember where you came from you can always go home

Track Name: I Believe In The Old Time Way
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - I Believe In The Old Time Way

Oh I believe, in the power that can move a mountain
I believe in the old time way
Oh I believe, in the old time singin’ and shoutin’
I believe in the old time way

I believe in the power that parted the water
For the children of Israel that day
And if you want to have a bright home in heaven
Believe in the old time way

Oh I believe, in the power that can move a mountain
I believe in the old time way
Oh I believe, in the old time singin’ and shoutin’
I believe in the old time way

Now some people say, to pray is useless
There's no need to sing God's praise
But if you want to have a bright home eternal
Believe in the old time way

Oh I believe, in the power that can move a mountain
I believe in the old time way
Oh I believe, in the old time singin’ and shoutin’
I believe in the old time way

Oh I believe, in the power that can move a mountain
I believe in the old time way
Oh I believe, in the old time singin’ and shoutin’
I believe in the old time way
I believe in the old time way

Track Name: Back Toward The Mountain
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - Back Toward The Mountain

We'd been together for a long while
What I had men seldom find
Until the day she met Tom Walker
Somehow our love had left her heart and mind
I swore that I would show her that our loves not blind

It's pretty dark back toward the mountain
Surely rain is a pourin’ down
I bet it's cold back in the holler
I'm feeling low and lonesome like the wind that's blowing round
I'm hoping what I lost there never will be found

It's been three years since Tom went missing
Where he is now, nobody knows
Swept away on the Pigeon River
It's amazing just how fast the water flows
His grave will have no marker just miles of rocky shoals

It's pretty dark back toward the mountain
Surely rain is a pourin’ down
I bet it's cold back in the holler
I'm feeling low and lonesome like the wind that's blowing round
I'm hoping what I lost there never will be found

It's pretty dark back toward the mountain
Surely rain is a pourin’ down
I bet it's cold back in the holler
I'm feeling low and lonesome like the wind that's blowing round
I'm hoping what I lost there never will be found
Hoping what I lost there never will be found
I'm hoping what I lost there never will be found
I'm hoping what I lost there never will be found
Hoping what I lost there never will be found
I'm hoping what I lost there never will be found

Track Name: Drive Myself To Drinkin'
The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys - Drive Myself to Drinking

Now honey you know I try to please you
You're every whim and wish is my command
But lately you don't appreciate it
The way you treat me I can't understand

Gonna quit this poutin’ quit this crying
Worrying me to death
I can't eat and I can't sleep my minds a terrible wreck
If you don't change around here
I been doing some thinking
Gonna build me a bar in the back of my car and drive myself to drinkin’

Around the house you've got it made my darling
You don't lift a finger I do everything
Cook and clean and iron the clothes honey
While you're reared back giving orders in the swing

Gonna quit this poutin’ quit this crying
Worrying me to death
I can't eat and I can't sleep my minds a terrible wreck
If you don't change around here
I been doing some thinking
Gonna build me a bar in the back of my car and drive myself to drinkin’

Gonna quit this poutin’ quit this cryin’
Worrying me to death
I can't eat and I can't sleep my minds a terrible wreck
If you don't change around here
I been doing some thinking
Gonna build me a bar in the back of my car and drive myself to drinkin’
If you don't change around here
I been doing some thinking
Gonna build me a bar in the back of my car and drive myself to drinkin’
Lord, lord
