krotix Americana is a large net and this group is no exception. Hints of Folk, C&W, and some Desert type / spaghetti western vibe. Favorite track: Can't Leave.

Bill Goodman This is some great music. Easy to chill out to and highly enjoyable. At times it can be a little dark and gritty like a Johnny Cash or Lindi Ortega song. "Vampires" reminds me a little bit of the intro to True Detective season 1 only slightly more upbeat.

I took the Elevator, but my heart fell down the stairs I raced for the finish line, you were already there I said "Where you going?" You said "Where you been?" I said "I've been running, just to see you again." You looked in my eyes, you brushed aside my hair Just for a minute or two, I thought you actually cared But then you looked at the horizon, and vanished into thin air I took the Elevator, but my heart fell down the stairs I raced for the finish line, but you were already there

He had blood on his lips, on his finger tips He had the devil in his eyes His skin was white, like he'd had a fright It was cold and he asked if he could stay the night I let him in through the doorway, And he hung up his long black cloak In the mirror he cast no reflection I thought maybe , the mirrors just broke I guess I knew that he was a vampire All the signs, they said beware I guess I knew that he was a vampire But that night I didn't care He swept me up the stairs, he laid me on the sheets Gave me a cold black stare, and he bared his sharp white teeth I said do you want some wine, he said no, you'll do just fine And by the way, your immortal soul is mine I guess I knew that he was a vampire All the signs, they said beware I guess I knew that he was a vampire But that night I didn't care Now I've got blood on my lips, on my finger tips, And I've got the devil in my eyes

I got a neon motel room just for you And you can bring whoever you want to There's nothing in particular we gotta do And the sign flashes in between red and blue Just keep on driving down interstate three Right on past the blockade they set up for me I could use some lemonade and some company I've only got about twenty-seven hours to be free The sign keeps on flashin' With the fireflies in the air I'm not even guilty But the Highway police, they don't care When you get here just knock on door number two I've nice little quaint highway view And you know I'll always take good care of you And the sign flashes in between red and blue The sign keeps on flashin' With the fireflies in the air I'm not even guilty But the Highway police they don't care

The winds keep on howlin' Telling me, that your gone The winds keep on howlin But I don't listen to their song When you left me I kept my eyes shut tight Oh yeah you left me, that's right The winds keep on howlin' Since you left me They cry every single night Oh that's right

Turn on your parlor lights I want to get weak Turn on your parlor lights Don't wanna play hide and seek Well I've been walking a thousand years With these chains on my feet Turn on your parlor lights And set me free Turn off the road ahead It's filled with night Turn off the open road There's an end in sight I've been walking a thousand years With these chains on my feet So turn on these pretty lights And set me free I want to take off these chains that bind me They're getting old and covered with rust I want to see a light in the darkness Shining down through the air filled with dust Turn on your parlor lights I want to get weak Turn on your parlor lights Don't wanna play hide and seek Well I've been walking a thousand years With these chains on my feet Turn on your parlor lights And set me free Turn on those pretty lights And set me free

My suitcase is in the corner All my clothes are packed in tight Got my ticket in my hand, shoes on my feet But I just can't leave you tonight I got the can't leave my baby No I can't leave my baby Can't leave my baby blues Can't go, even if I want to Even if I choose I know I've been mistreated It ain't fair and it ain't right But I got you sleepin in my bed Swimmin in my head And I just can't leave you tonight I've been pacing this room for hours I know I should be on that flight But how can I go When you're so deep down in my soul How can I leave you tonight I got the can't leave my baby No I can't leave my baby Can't leave my baby blues Can't go, even if I want to Even if I choose

Sidewinder, by the side of the road You ain't gonna wind up with me Sidewinder, getting ready to go So take your snake eyes off me When you shed your skin We'll see the shape you're in Your mistakes, everyone will see Then you'll hiss and shake, like a rattle snake Not the little lamb you pretend to be Sidewinder I know your name Sidewinder I know your game Sidewinder I know your claim That you are never to blame When you shed your skin We'll see the shape you're in Your mistakes, everyone will see Then you'll hiss and shake, like a rattle snake Not the little lamb you pretend to be Sidewinder, by the side of the road You ain't gonna wind up with me Sidewinder, I'm getting ready to go So take your snake eyes off me

You keep waltzing across my mind Like an old country song That plays all the time Even when you are gone And when I turn out the lights It still plays on and on One two three waltz to me One two three waltz from me Yes you're gone, and that's fine You're still waltzing across my mind Step to the left, step to the right Spin me around, there's no one in sight Draw back the blinds, turn off the light You're still waltzing across my mind Like an old country song One two three One two three Waltz to me, waltz from me Yes you're gone and that's fine You're still waltzing across my mind You're still waltzing across my mind Like an old country song One two three, waltz to me One two three, waltz from me Yes you're gone and that's fine You're still waltzing across my mind
