Mountain Switchback   Listen on Spotify

It’s not easy being a working band on the road. Indeed the singer sings “it’s hard to be the perfect band.” There are many distractions, but the worse of all is when they’re playing, and a beautiful woman on the dance floor breaks into a frenetic dance.

Mountain Switchback Lyrics
(Gibson/Bates/Kelley 2017)

Verse 1
Set them up,
Tear them down,
Electric blowup,
Always out of town,
Tempo speedup,
Alcohol slowdown.

Sometimes it’s a chore
To be the perfect band,
Only one thing rattles us more,
Just one thing to jolt us more . . . .

Chorus
And there she is,
More and more,
Exploding on
The dance floor,
Short, young woman
In halter top and
Tight blue jeans,
And she won’t stop,
By all means,
Tight blue jeans
Diamond in her belly,
Whiff of apple jelly,
Red tat on her
Ankle . . . .
She gives her
Leg a smack,
Lord, more curves than
A Mountain Switchback.

Back In The Hills
On ode to country living.
Back In The Hills
(Gibson/Bates/Kelley 2017)

Verse 1
Way back in the Hills
Find them sit’n around,
Doing what they know they do best,
Not too many people,
Know what they do,
That’s where they go to kick it back and rest.

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.

Verse 2
Away from the smog,
Smelling cows and hogs,
To me that’s what I call fresh air,
Some go there to write,
Others to spend the night,
The closest thing to a city is a county fair.

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.

Instrumental

Verse 3
Yeah, back in the Hills,
Laying in a field,
In a country sky you can see a lot more stars,
Try it in the city,
You’ll find it such a pity,
Laying on the concrete, dodging cars.

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.

Instrumental

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.
