Thoughts and other ramblings

A few months back I discovered the Country Rocks playlist on Spotify and I’ve been listening to it a lot ever since. I’m not much of a country fan personally, especially not in a big dose, but I’ve discovered a few really cool rock bands thanks to that playlist. Apparently I do love when country and the old school dirty rock and roll meets. It’s been a few weeks since I last checked, and Die Rockin’ was a first song on it. I fell in love and apparently Whiskey Myers  just released their latest and self-titled album at the end of September. I’ll definitely will take a closer look at it. I love the music and the lead singer has an awesome voice I could listen to for a long time.

 

Lyrics

I was born a wild child in fear of the Holy Ghost
Raised on field holler with the spirit in my bones
I turned 15, I was lost to the Pentecost
I felt a woman’s breast and heard Sway by the Stones
Next thing you know Lord, I’m in the band
We come from East Texas, a river bottomland
Harder than a Bois d’Arc tree, too drunk to stand
With cowboy hats and old guitars and Copenhagen cans

I’m gonna rock until I die, I’m gonna die rockin’
I’m gonna rock until I die, I’m gonna die rockin’
I’m gonna rock until I die, I’m gonna die rockin’
Gonna die rockin’, gonna die rockin’

Gather around you children, come on take my hand
I’m gonna take you to a place, but it ain’t, ain’t the Promised Land
It’s got every thing you want, baby, but nothing’s for sell
It’s a lost highway, it’s a California hotel
It’s where the ones who came before, they paid it with their lives
They gave their souls to rock n roll, I’m gonna rock until I die

I’m gonna rock until I die, I’m gonna die rockin’
I’m gonna rock until I die, I’m gonna die rockin’
I’m gonna rock until I die, I’m gonna die rockin’
Gonna die rockin’, gonna die rockin’
