Drive-By Truckers

Drive-By Truckers are an alternative country/Southern rock band based in Athens, Georgia, though two out of five current members (Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley) are originally from The Shoals region of Northern Alabama, and the band strongly identifies with Alabama. Their music uses three guitars as well as bass, drums, and now keyboards. Like many alternative country acts, the Drive-By Truckers record in analog (using 2 inch, 16-track open reel tape recorders). However, unlike the majority of their contemporaries, the Drive-By Truckers have consistently pushed their labels to also release the band's records in a vinyl format. more »

The graffiti on the backstage wall
Gets painted over in a muted shade
And the club becomes an Old Navy
After the scene dies

When the last six-string slinger
Has to bow down for insurance
And accept the mundane
After the scene dies

When the last one leaves
And the last note fades
And the last dream's been put away
Shut the light off, shut the light off

When the front-man turns to Jesus
And the drummer moves away
I'll still be doing what pleases me
After the scene dies

When the bartender passes and the owner cashes out
And they box up the glasses
And they take the sound system down
Guitars back in their cases, don't forget my fries
After the scene dies

When the last one leaves
And the last note fades
And the last dream's been put away
Shut the light off, shut the light off

After the scene dies
After the scene dies
After the scene dies
After the scene dies

What you gonna do when the club shuts down?
What you gonna do when the club shuts down?
What you gonna do when the club shuts down?
After the scene dies
