A Town Called Blues by Len Callo 2012

 RIDIN’ DOWN THE HIWAY
WIND BLOWIN THROUGH MY HAIR
GUITAR ON MY BACK
I DON’T HAVE A CARE
GUNNA FIND ME A TOWN
WHERE I CAN GO ON A TEAR

JAMES TOWN, DEADWOOD,
COLEVILLE, KALAMAZOO
I RIDE FROM TOWN TO TOWN
THAT's JUST WHAT I DO
BUT EVERY TOWN IS NAMED THE SAME
IT’S A TOWN CALLED BLUES

CHORUS:
A TOWN CALLED BLUES -
GOD ONLY KNOWS HOW HARD I PAID MY DUES
DONT KNOW WHERE I’M GOIN
BUT THE TOWN IS CALLED THE BLUES
(FROM HERE ON OUT I’M ROCKIN’
IN A TOWN CALLED BLUES)


MY ROAD KING SINGS
AS I SEE THOSE CITY LIGHTS
GUNNA TEAR UP THAT TOWN
TEAR IT UP TONIGHT
I’M ROCKIN THE BLUES
UNTIL THE MORNIN’ LIGHT
      
Chorus

BLACKFOOT, STURGISS,
CHEYENNE, SAN BERDOO
GET ON MY HOG,
GET ON MY TRAVELIN SHOES
BUT EVERY TOWN IS NAMED THE SAME
IT’S A TOWN CALLED BLUES

Chorus

 

Volcano by Len Callo 7-9-08

The night was gettin' bright by the light of the moon
Things would get much brighter on this night very soon
But I never knew just how - or just how true

The Goddess filled the sky with a pillar of smoke
But I realized I still had hope
to maybe leave behind an encouraging word or 2

(Chorus)
(and then) there was FIRE IN THE SKY!
and in the Goddess eye
The natives never saw it coming
They could only wave goodbye


Clutching my axe I just ran down the road
Looking back to see the Volcano explode
Yes it was too true - the blue island blew

Fire and brimstone rained down on all
Against this mountain we were all too small
That's when I knew what I had to do

(Chorus)
-solo-

I climbed up the cliff to the Temple above
and prayed to the Goddess to show her love
and spare the helpless people down in the village below

That's when the clouds burst open with rain
and put out the fires and the villagers pain
The people were safe but she left the lava to flow

(Ch)
There was FIRE IN THE SKY
and in the Goddess eye
The natives praised the Goddess Pele
who didn't let them die

There was FIRE IN THE SKY
the Goddess had to cry
She gave her worst then took mercy
and couldn't say goodbye

THESE OLD SHOES by Len Callo 2006

These old shoes
There ain't much tread left on
These old shoes
The leather's worn and cracked on
These old shoes

Oh but the places they have been
The stories they could tell
Been to Hell and back again
and wearin' it quite well

These old shoes
behold the tortured sole on
These old shoes
the road beneath them BURNS in
these old Shoes

But there's no need to shed a tear
they've carried on so long
Although for them the end is near
the road continues on

SOLO

Remember well how they wore on
when looking at your self
It's better to have traveled on
than sit there on a shelf

These old shoes
It's time to say goodbye to
These old shoes
nothin' left to lose in
These old Shoes


SIBLEY by Len Callo 2006

Had a cruel nasty women
All she do is treat me mean
She was ruthless and so evil
like no one I ever seen
When she swung at me with a sickle
I pushed her in the cotton bale machine

They found me at the delta
Tracked me down with a bloodhound dog
Right there at the water
Bitten hard by that dirty dog
I was cryin' and a shakin'
deep inside a hollow log

They gonna hang me in the mornin'
Hang me high from the old elm tree
With the howlin' wind blowin'
Swinging there for all to see
But I know I'll go to Heavan
only the Lord will have mercy for me

IT'S A CRIME EVERY TIME 

by Callo/Becker/Leddy 2014

Time after Time
they look into your mind
God help us all
if they don't like what they find
It's a crime every time 
so you betters stay in line

Year after Year
it becomes ever clear
Those who should protect us
will enslave us into fear
It's a crime every time
and they squeeze out every dime

Time after time
I keep looking for a sign
but what I find is hope
escaping from my mind

It's a crime every time
it's time to leave it all behind

CAPTAIN JIM by Len Callo 2011

He’s got One slipper - One sock -

A bottle of wine as he stumbles down the dock
Captain Jim don’t sail much anymore.
His captains hat is old and worn -

his over coat is dirty and torn
Soup and crumbs in his long gray beard -

the children say he sure smells weird
Captain Jim don’t sail much anymore

Oh but when he was a young strappin’ lad -
He would sail the seas and drive the ladies mad
He had his men who loved him so

but something’ strange happened long ago….

Now he’s got one tooth and one eye -

a wooden leg  and a bottle of Rye
Captain Jim don’t sail much anymore.

One day it  came outta the sea -

a raging  beast -1000 pounds at least
The men fought hard to save their lives -

but the beast had teeth as sharp as knives
The ship was destroyed - all were dead -

the Capt. lived but it was on his head
And when no one believed the tale he told -

the captains fate began to unfold

SOLO

So now he looks out beyond the reef -

He thinks about the mighty beast
Late at night  he hears it again -

He hears the screams of his dieing men
But no one will ever know the truth -

they’ll never know it was really him
No one will know the beast was Captain Jim
Captain Jim don’t sail much anymore

DEVIL'S PECKER ROAD by Len Callo 2002

In 1827
from the mountain to the town
the people there would build a road for going up and down
But greedy Jim O'Flanery
made the tressel much too weak
and 7 townsmen perished falling 700 feet

The people they took umbrage
with old O'Flanery
so they hung him from his tressel for all the town to see
He swore as he was dyin'
there was one thing he would do
"When I get back from Hell I'll stick the Devil's d*ck in you."

They called it Devil's Pecker Road Devil's Pecker Road
7 and O'Flanery on Devil's Pecker road

In 1847
On the mountain they found "GOLD"!
but mysteries would happen there on Devil's Pecker Road
5 would die by fire
The quake took 40 more
Any man who touched the gold payed for it with his soul

On Devil's Pecker Road, Devil's Pecker Road
Touch the gold and lose your soul on Devil's Pecker Road

In 1957
Betty-Sue met Bobby-Joe
The drove up Devil's Pecker just to be alone
While balling in the back seat
they felt an awful chill
and then their Chevy drove away with no one at the wheel

Down Devil's Pecker Road, Devil's Pecker Road
The Devil and O'Flanery drive Devil's Pecker Road

I Thunder ON! by Len Callo 2011

Revving up my engine
Burnin up the road
I feel the mountains calling
I’m about to explode

(CHORUS):
I'll be following the calling
The calling of the open road
I can feel the rolling thunder
calling me on    -   I THUNDER ON!

A Zen-Like spirit fills me as the hills roll by
peacefulness and thunder running side by side
Strong vibration thrills me  -  Fire in my eye
My Wheels are my wings - The highway is my sky

CHORUS/solo

I might be ridin' solo
But I never am alone
The road is my Family
The highway's my home


ABDUCTEE by Karl Gray 2005

Rolling down a Panhandle back road.
Long about half passed Ten.
Bright lights commin hard and fast.
Thought it was the cops, better think again.
Laying face down in the gravel
Was about the next thing I known.
Crawled back to my ol' Chevy truck.
But all four tires, they was blown.

Chorus:
Wife want's to know how I got them scars.
Daughter wonders why I just stare at the stars.
My friends all think something’s wrong with me.
I just keep askin‘… how on earth can this be?

Lost my job at the Foundry.
Lost all of my friends.
Doctor says nothing’s wrong with me.
The truth will come out in the end.
I guess it's just our little secret.
Them and what they made out of me.
Townsfolk laugh and talk behind my back
“There goes the abductee”

Chorus: Solo

Well I don't remember no details.
But when I drift off late at night.
I dream of that Panhandle back road.
And going away with them lights.

Chorus

ANOTHER HEATHER by Len Callo 2014

You're not gunna like this - I got bad news for you
I met someone else - I been untrue
You treated me so bad - What else could I do?

The crazy thing is this: She's got the same name as you

I'm in LOVE with Another Heather
I'm in LOVE with Another Heather

You so mean - You so cruel
Treated me like a fool

I met this girl & it went too far
Booze was flowin - She was goin'
Now everyone in town is knowin

I'm in LOVE with Another Heather
I'm in LOVE with Another Heather

Now you come a crawlin' back

& if I would just take you back
It's gunna be happy days
But Tigers never change their stripes
Leopards don't change their spots
& I been happy as a pig in shit
with the Heather that I got

I'm in LOVE with Other Heather
I'm in LOVE with Another Heather
