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 easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

(Me and my Annette, we was as fond as we could be 
We was set to marry in October thirty three 
I set my sights on courting her, as fine as she could be 
I never even noticed her best friend Marilee 
Took a job at the saw mill and I bought my girl a ring 
Had a pre wedding party, close friends and family 
Everything was fine, eating homemade ice cream 
I swear I never noticed maid of honor, Marilee 
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter. 

Marilee was taken ill, it was several miles from home 
Back then it wasn't fitting for a girl to leave alone 
Sweet Annette, she asked me to walk her to the door 
As innocent as children back before the war 
My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter. 

Lord have mercy for what we done, Lord have mercy when to people get alone 
Neither one of us had done anything like that you see 
By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee, 

My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter.
