about

“C&R” is proud to release their second album, “Gamblers and Fancy Women,” which again embraces their genre-bending sound in a melting pot of Southern harmonies, foot stomping rhythms, nostalgic melodies, and sorrowful storytelling.

Track Name: Before This Boat
All you gamblers
All fancy women
Must sign up,
Sign up with the Captain
Before this boat,
Before this boat leaves for New Orleans

Before this boat,
Before this boat leaves for New Orleans
Track Name: Fine Sunglasses
My heart's been in the shop
Such a rainy long time
I'm here to tell ya, that I'm ready to go
Baby, this is a warning
I am telling you so

You're the only man who's in the know
Yeah, you're the only man who's in the know

I don't give a damn about your fine sunglasses
I don't give a damn about the wheels beneath your feet
Just so long as I can feel your engine
Pull me out from the darkest side of this dead end street

My life is a fire
And the well has all run dry
There were many before you
They were nothing but show
My love is a cancer
It was put here to grow
You're the only man who needs to know
Oh, you're the only man who needs to know

I don't give a damn about your fine sunglasses
I don't give a damn about the wheels beneath your feet
Just so long as I can feel your engine
Pull me out from the darkest side of this dead end street

I don't give a dam about the wheels beneath your feet
Just so long as I can feel your engine
Pull me out from the darkest side of this dead end street
Track Name: Girl I'm On Your Side
One passing moment
Two wasted thoughts
Three lawless theories in a notebook that I bought
And when these demons rear their heads again
I'm here for you my friend

One way to skin it
Life has a cost
The man with everything's familiar with loss
We'll go on spinning without a sound
Honey, we're all going down

Oh, wee
Oh, my
Have a good laugh
Take a good cry
There ain't no order, no reason why
Girl, I'm on your side

So get to digging
Lace up your shoes
Put on your headlamp to shine upon your blues
And when you surface with empty hands
You don't need to understand

Oh, wee
Oh, my
Have a good laugh
Take a good cry
There ain't no order, no reason why
Girl, I'm on your side

I am your castle
you are my queen
I've got my hand upon your royal cavalry
Let me protect you 'till you have your own
little prince upon the throne

Oh, wee
Oh, my
Have a good laugh
Take a good cry
There ain't no order, no reason why
There ain't no devil for to reply
There ain't no savior waiting in the sky
Girl, I'm on your side
Track Name: Borrowed Fate
Ain't no preacher, no ain't no Saint
But I don't know the devil oh no
I ain't chasin' no pearly gate
Just trying to catch a little something coming
Just trying to steal a little borrowed fate

Fateless woman and a foolish man
Wasn't made in heaven oh no
Walk together the best they can
Just trying to catch a little something coming
just trying to steal a little borrowed fate

Every angel falls down tumbling
Good men stumble
We all hide something
Time was flying, we were late
Busy chasing, borrowed fate

Felt it coming on all my days
Never does leave you oh no
I love you darling let me count the ways
Just trying to catch a little something coming
Just trying to steal a little borrowed fate

Every angel falls down tumbling
Good men stumble
We all hide something
Time was flying, we were late
Busy chasing, borrowed fate

I wait for you on the edge of night
Never would leave you oh no
I believe in my bones you'd do me right

Just trying to catch a little freight train leaving
Just trying to catch a little, we were late
Just trying to catch a little freight train leaving
Just trying to catch a little, we were late
Just trying to catch a little something coming
Just trying to catch a little something coming
Just trying to catch a little something

Every angel falls down tumbling
Good men stumble
We all hide something
Time was flying, we were late
Busy chasing,
Busy chasing,
Busy chasing, borrowed fate
Track Name: Burn Slow
The party is over
The band has gone home
It's me and them old stars
All of us, all alone
And one has gone missing not long ago
Burn Slow

This whole place is ashes
A cheap borrowed dress
Rye from a tea cup
More and more, neverless
I was all painted lonesome
Now everyone knows
Burn Slow

And the day's gone mad
When you stare in the sun
There's too much truth there to hide
Oh, you can have the light
Take all you want,
And I'll take the night

The affair is a side show
A freak in a cage
The bride is a child though,
Drowning in rage
All fired up now, nowhere to go
Burn Slow

Oh, and the day's gone mad
When you stare in the sun
There's too much truth there to hide
Oh, and you can have the light
Take all you want,
And I'll take the night

And I'll do what's right
I'll run the line
I know how to fight for the thingss that are mine
But you shatter me up real good
Yeah, you shatter me up real good
And I'll do what you ask
I'll do what you need
I'll stand in the fire 'til my soul starts to bleed

Yeah, you can have the light
Yeah, you can have the light
Take what you want
And take all you need
Track Name: Lemon Tree
I'm sitting in the shade of a lemon tree
She keeps the moonlight off of me
I don't know where I'm going
But my roots are plain to see
Sitting in the shade of a lemon tree

Busy hands and an absent mind
A foolish boy with wandering eyes
You weren't easy to find
But you carved a man out of me
Sitting in the shade of a lemon tree

When the leaves come down
Nothing left to show
I'll be in her arms when the roots let go
On a weeping hill
When a cold wind moans
I'll come crashing down but I will not land alone
I will not land alone

There's nothing you can hide from the one you love
Those dark eyes know me better than anyone
See me drowning in between
The time we had and the time we need

When the leaves come down
Nothing left to show
I'll be in her arms when the roots let go
On a weeping hill
When a cold wind moans
I'll come crashing down but I will not land alone
I will not land alone

I'm sitting in the shade of a lemon tree
She keeps the moonlight off of me
Don't know where I'm going
But my roots are plain to see
And I'm sitting in the shade of a lemon tree
Track Name: Paper Ticket
In a long and lost September
Leaving nothing to admire
The dove had flown
The spark had gone with all dreams of the fire

If there's something lasts forever
It ain't nothing that I've found
From dust to dust
the heart can break and never make a sound

Paper Ticket
Pulls across this whole sweet dreaming land
Paper ace in my hand
One way's fine

Paper Ticket
Pulls me right out of this back facing town
Puts my wheels on the ground
To the end of the line

The forest meets the desert
Where the water meets the skies
The highway folds
The lights of home, they roll across my eyes

I have dreams of Santa Ana
Though it's no place that I've been
The other side,
The great divide that knows not of my sin

Paper Ticket
Pulls me right across this whole sweet dreaming land
Paper Ace in my hand
One way's fine

Paper Ticket
Pulls me right out of this back facing town
Puts my wheels on the ground
To the end of the line
Track Name: My Captain
Oh, my captain he has gone, he has gone
Never again to rise up ready with the fair weather chimes of dawn
Where he has sailed
Eternity may tell
In our time, I knew him well

I was born on a windless day
The first thing I remember is casting lines away
From my home that I knew, from my home
He was a most peculiar man
No order did he throw
He said follow when you can
Soon you'll know, my boy, you'll know

He dreamed tomorrow to drive away the past
These things last
Long way gone, they last

Oh, my Captain he has gone, he has gone
Never again to rise up ready with the fair weather chimes of dawn
Where he has sailed
Eternity may tell
In our time, I knew him well

Sometimes a man outlives his ship
His feet fall back on land
and his mind begins to slip
To a home that he knew, to his home

He dreamed tomorrow to drive away the past
These things last
Long way gone, they last

Oh, my Captain he has gone, he has gone
Never again to rise up ready with the fair weather chimes of dawn
Where he has sailed
Eternity may tell
In our time, I knew him well
In our time, I knew him well
