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 Written by Dallas Frazier

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 Written by CJ Lewandowski

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 Written by Allen Mills

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 Written by Jerry Cole

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.
