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 »

By the time you were born there were four other siblings 
With your Mama awaiting your daddy in jail 
Your oldest brother was away at a home 
And You didn't meet him til you were nineteen years old 

Old enough to know better, old enough to know better 
But you took to his jaw line and long sandy hair 
How he made you feel like none of the others 
And the way he looked at you touched you deep down in there. 

So you jumped on his bike and rode into the sunset 
But the sequel it started with the next morning sun 
And the dew on the bike seat and you all a glow 
From the love he put in you and a life on the run. 

Now, the District Attorney said he might of forgiven 
You had lots of reasons to turn out this way 
But He'll throw you in jail for them four little babies 
You made and delivered along the way 

Last night you had a dream about a Lord so forgiving 
He might show compassion for a heathen he damned 
You awoke in a jail cell, alone and so lonely 
Seven years in Michigan
