I can tell Your car is all loaded up By the way it’s parked on the grass Your shocks are worn out and tend to sag Under the weight of a full tank of gas Not to mention your suitcase that’s in the trunk With a roadmap, an shovel & something to get you drunk But now you're hesitating ‘cause you stopped and thunk… … you know I’m right. I can tell Your pistol is loaded By the way it fills your hand You arm ain’t accustomed to the extra weight And I don't think you've got the sand To line up the gun sights with your tear-filled eye And point the muzzle at the man that you'd like to see die And now you’re hesitating and you’re asking yourself why … you know I’m right You left your wedding ring on the night stand I suppose you’ve made your choice You let your pistol do the talking But who knew it had such a lovely singing voice I can tell that you’re scared now By the way you peer through the window shade The boys in blue are closing in on you And there ain't a whole lot left to say They’ll put steel bracelets on your hands And take for a drive in a black & white sedan To the shallow grave where you left your man … you know I’m right.

Can you teach me how to love? Can you teach me how to speak too soon? How to say the wrong thing and ruin everything like you always do? Can you teach me how to cry? Can you show me the reasons why? And when people ask me how I’m doing, won’t you teach me how to lie? Teach me how to sing a sad, sad song Teach me how to drink my liver strong Teach me how to carry the burden of a true love gone so wrong Teach me how to sing a sad, sad song

Put on your dancing shoes And your little black dress The one that makes the fellas stare and makes the ladies stress Hop in my car We’re going to go downtown We’re gonna live it up like we never ever planned on living it down I’ve been so well behaved all week long But the weekend is here and it’s time to right some wrongs C’mon c’mon… We’re gonna make a mess C’mon c’mon… We’re gonna make a mess (guitar solo) C’mon c’mon… We’re gonna make a mess C’mon c’mon… We’re gonna make a mess C’mon c’mon… We’re gonna make a mess C’mon c’mon… We’re gonna make a mess

Sometimes I get blue AND where I am ain't where I want to be But I walk in the room, everybody turns to see Everybody's talking but nobody's talking to me AND even if they were I wouldn't care I wouldn't find their topics interesting I could try to fake it but I just don't have the energy Everybody's talking but nobody's talking to me Blah blah blah People like to ask me what's my problem They want to hang this social awkwardness on me I just say "I think it's pretty obvious to see..." Everybody's talking but nobody's talking to me

If you see me staring off into space it’s because you’re on my mind Don’t act too surprised pretty lady it happens all the time I’m hypnotized by your blond hair glistening in the sun I know 1000 songs but right now I can’t think of one I can fake my way through any song With a shuffle or a swong But your pretty eyes get me all choked up When it comes time to sing I realize my shortcomings and I hope you don’t think I’m dumb I know 1000 songs but right now I can’t think of one I can play to rowdy crowds for hours every night But lose track of my fingers and mumble my words for you in the clear day light I get so distracted, so please don’t make fun I know 1000 songs but right now I can’t think of one I love it when you sit across from me with your guitar We’re not quite in tune with each other but we’re not out by very far I’ll just bend the notes I play till they match the chords you strum I know 1000 songs but right now I can’t think of one

My chevrolet Still knows the way To that old café Where we used to meet I thought I just saw you there All I could do was stop & stare You changed your hair you’re still as pretty as can be … About a week ago They let me out on parole I wanted to find you and let you know Because you said you’d wait for me I’d hoped that you Hadn’t found yourself somebody new But then your visits became so few and far between … The years haven’t been as kind to Me as they have to you I suppose I should be on my way I’ll leave you to your fiancée And awkwardly back away back to my trusty old ’58 che… vro… let… I got a basement suite On 111 street My rent’s on time and I keep the place neat Just in case you stop by to see If I’m telling the truth The worst part of my calaboose Was that I spent more time waiting for you Than you ever did for me … My 1958 Del-ray 283 cubic inch V8 powerglide transmission and original paint Despite the pitted chrome It’s always gotten me back home I’ve never been betrayed by my 58 che… vro… let…

You can’t pay your bills with the silver lining That the dark clouds tend to keep So why do people draw my gaze to their attention Each time the dark clouds start to creep? People always wonder why I’m always in a hurry and I Don’t have anywhere to go But when you see me, I’ll be running in your direction because Walking is much too slow There’s not a lot of difference between the singer on the corner And the rock & roll band on the stage In the end they all hope you’ll part with what’s jingling I your pockets Before you turn & walk away People always wonder why I’m always in a hurry and I Don’t have anywhere to go But when you see me, I’ll be running in your direction because Walking is much too slow Tell-tale sign of a rock & roll band Is sounding good and feeling bad the way you dance in the rain when it falls from the clouds But it all turns to mud when it hits the ground So don't sell me those silver linings That those dark clouds tend to keep They don't serve much purpose for the rock & roll band Or the singer on the corner of the street People always wonder why I’m always in a hurry and I Don’t have anywhere to go But when you see me, I’ll be running in your direction because Walking is much too slow

I'm gonna earn me up a little bit of money And buy me a Nashville 6120 Orange and Gold with a big old brand And everywhere I go, it'll be in-hand I'll plug it in, turn it up, and then I'll show you Exactly what 3 chords can do When walking around has lost it's thrill I'll pick myself up a Coupe Deville (Monterey) And I'll drive down the boulevards and streets With my 6120 up in the front seat In case I need to pull over and show you Exactly what 3 chords can do 3 chords can help you not to feel alone 3 chords can make you weep and moan Make you jump and shout, Make you cuss & swear Make everybody around you stop and stare When you bend those strings and sing that song And if it's catchy enough they'll even sing along Then their disposition will start to improve That's what 3 little chords can do When your songs are as good as you can get em on your own It might be time to take them on the road You can get a little help from an upright bass And some bashin on the drum kit setting the pace And you can chase away those hard luck blues And you know how many chords to use Turn the amps up loud & heat up those tubes So they can hear it all the way in the back of the room And then tomorrow morning it'll be front page news Exactly what 3 chords can do

I’ve never really known what to say to get a girl like you to look my way But with you it came so easily I just looked over at you looking over at me No I don’t want to hang around with the usual crew There ain’t nothing I’d rather do than drive around in my ford fairlane with you Every chance I get I climb into the helm Of a tour van and I get overwhelmed I think about you every time I can This isn’t what I do it’s who I am All the time I was gone I hope you knew I was thinking I should buy you a diamond ring You are deserving of such things But rings come off so easily That’s not permanent enough for me So what I think I’d rather do Is put your name in a rose tattoo There ain’t nothing I’d rather do than drive around in my ford fairlane with you When I die, don’t dig no grave Just throw my ashes in a guitar case and throw me in the trunk of the ford fairlane There ain’t nothing I’d rather do than drive around in my ford fairlane with you

In the wee hours of the morning, Just before the break of day... Some people might call that way too early, But I'm inclined to call it way too late... I ain't had time to get drunk I've had my hands full playing guitar I'll just crawl under the covers next to you And hold you in my arms It doesn't get much more peaceful It doesn't get much more quiet And I couldn't be much more happy Where I am when I close my eyes. ::: I ain't had time to think I've just been singing and playing guitar I'll just crawl under the covers next to you And be right where you are It doesn't get much more peaceful It doesn't get much more quiet And I couldn't be much more happy Where I am when I close my eyes. Where I am when I close my eyes Where I am when I close my eyes

Tonight I'm going to do a little drinking And in the morning I'll be feeling pain & sorrow I'll be having more fun than you can fit in just one night, So I'll be stealin' some good feelin' from tomorrow You can drink a thousand shots of whiskey Between the day you're born and the day you die You can spread them out over 10 or 20 years, But me, I'm going to drink them all tonight Tonight I'm going to do some celebrating The way you'd celebrate a broken heart If the sour mash can head these tears off at the pass, Maybe they won't even try to start You can drink a thousand shots of whiskey Between the day you're born and the day you die You can spread them out over 10 or 20 years, But me, I'm going to drink them all tonight Underneath the seal is me wondering where you've been Halfway down the bottle is me moving on again At the bottom of the bottle is me passed out on the ground The girls sure mess me up but they don't ever slow me down I hope I left my keys with the bartender Today I woke up face down in the dirt Usually I wear my broken heart on my sleeve, So maybe it's okay that I can't find my shirt You can drink a thousand shots of whiskey Between the day you're born and the day you die You can spread them out over 10 or 20 years, But me, I'm going to drink them all tonight

about

Confusionaires! Edmonton, Alberta

The Confusionaires are an Edmonton -based, Canadian rock & roll trio that is touted as a ‘rockabilly band‘ and although their ties to traditional rock & roll are strong, their music and delivery are a few steps away from the early recordings of Rock & Roll.

The spirit of Rock & Roll remains completely intact.

The Confusionaires are truly a rockabilly band for the modern era.
