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 »

Well, my daddy didn't pull out, but he never apologized 
Rock and roll means well, but it can't help telling young boys lies. 
A baby on the way's a good enough reason to get you out alive 
Get you out without having to swallow any pride. 

All my friends are restless, all they do is talk it down, 
Two or eight lanes, it don't matter, it's just another town. 
There's a fool on every corner, on every street, in every one 
And I'd rather be your fool nowhere than go somewhere and be no one's 

So marry me, sweet thing won't you marry me 
Your mama thinks I beat anything she's ever seen. 
This old town's alright with me, there's nowhere I'd rather be. 
Long as they stay mad at one another, they can't get mad at me 

Every time I leave here something bad happens to me 
Like a busted hand or finding some man laying where I sleep 
She don't mean nothing to me, that's just how it goes round here 
It's a cartoon town, I play my part, and I ain't spoke her name in years 

So marry me... 

I don't want anything I done to be nobody's fault 
Even if they got more money and mouth than they got balls. 
That's just how it went down, right or wrong, it's just that way. 
Just cause I don't run my mouth don't mean I got nothing to say... 

Marry me...
