If you can't tell it from the shape I'm in I kept it goin when I shoulda just let it end Have one more man, another round Next thing I knew that room was spinnin around and around and around Play one more man, I love that song Just keep that volume up, Oh yea and the lights turned down I'm feelin tired babe, I gotta go But everyone in the room keeps screamin for more, more, more, more, more These nights are what keep us alive They can't all be ties and shirts and this same old nine-to-five These nights are what keep us alive Just keep those records spinnin, yea and don't let it die These nights are what keep us alive They can't all be ties and shirts and this same old nine-to-five These nights are what keep us alive Just keep those records spinnin, yea and don't let it die

They got married real young and guess what, They don't have any regrets Cause they found something people spend all of their lives Searchin for but they never really find, yea they never find it I know that you're a little old, but they know something you don't So to hell with what you think it takes to live the simple life and to hell with what you think it takes to be the downtown pride If the same old day-to-day's okay with you you're fine Save your speech I'm gonna live a different kind of life There's dark clouds rollin and whatdya know, they're gonna push on through They're weatherin a storm that most people dont make it through but they're keepin their heads above water they divorced the idea of the picket fence they're devoted to the fact that there's gottta be more to this I know that you're a little older, but they'll get somewhere you wont So to hell with what you think it takes to live the simple life and to hell with what you think it takes to be the downtown pride If the same old day-to-day's okay with you you're fine Save your speech I'm gonna live a different kind of life Oh I know that you're a little older, And I know you've and heard it all And I hear what you're saying, but they'll get somewhere you wont So to hell with what you think it takes to live the simple life and to hell with what you think it takes to be the downtown pride If the same old day-to-day's okay with you you're fine Save your speech I'm gonna live a different kind of life

She's the Queen of Midwest Summers, but she doesn't like the heat She loves plantin flowers, but she doesn't like to weed Oh and she loves swimmin, but her hair just can't get wet She likes to look her best She's Ohio's Mona Lisa, she's been painted by this land She loves to read Jane Austin and feel those pages in her hand This ain't no center of art and culture, but she's doin the best she can She was born, to live somewhere else But she's makin the best of where she is today She was meant to leave this place But she's makin it more beautiful the longer she stays She was born, to live somewhere else But she's makin the best of where she is today She was born a city girl But she's treatin this old country side like it's the center of the wolrd maybe one day, she'll leave this place But she's makin it more beautiful the longer she stays

Into the Sun 04:13
Oh these changin leaves they just depress her, Because this means that winter's settin in, And this breeze it chills her to the bone, And she just wants to get out of the cold So she's headin straight into the sun, Cause there ain't nothin left here in the Midwest for a girl like her And she heard out west that the sun doesn't set and with her that's fine Oh and whatever it is she's lookin for, I hope she finds She used to think, that she could make something of herself hear But the factories have all shut down So she's betterin her proximity to L.A. Because she's heard, that's where stars are made So she's headin straight into the sun, Cause there ain't nothin left here in the Midwest for a girl like her And she heard out west that the sun doesn't set and with her that's fine Oh and whatever it is she's lookin for, I hope she finds So she's headin straight into the sun, Cause there ain't nothin left here in the Midwest for a girl like her And she heard out west that the sun doesn't set and with her that's fine Oh and whatever it is she's lookin for, I hope she finds Darlin whatever it is you're lookin for, I hope you find

All Over Now 02:52
I was a mess when you first left, full of sadness and regret Dark disposition, low morale I wrote a hundred thousand songs, about all my faults and wrongs But baby its all over now I used to sit and cry, bleedin from the eye I needed you near me and now But now I'm headin for a place where I don't have to see your face Cause baby its all over now I've been wastin so much time keepin you up in my mind I've finally wiped you from my brow And I know you don't need me so its safe to say that we Are finally all over now We've done this once before this time in out the door This time I'm throwin in the towel And now I'm headin for a place where I don't have to see your face Cause baby its all over now I've been wastin so much time keepin you up in my mind I've finally wiped you from my brow And I know you don't need me so its safe to say that we Are finally all over now I was a mess when you first left, full of sadness and regret Dark disposition, low morale I wrote a hundred thousand songs, about all my faults and wrongs But baby its all over now Yea baby its all over now Yea baby its all over now

The story's gettin old you better read it for yourself before its gone for good And you can't find it anymore It's outta stock, outta print, you're outta luck, outta time, And they're closin up for the night And ya gotta try just a little bit harder Ya gotta want it just a little bit more You've got to reach out for the ones that you love and make sure that they don't get in your way if you wanna make it in this world The walls in this place yea they're gettin old But there's still a few who come in every night For that same old, same old That they've gotten here for years But they're lockin up those doors tonight And never open again, never again And ya gotta try just a little bit harder Ya gotta want it just a little bit more You've got to reach out for the ones that you love and make sure that they don't get in your way if you wanna make it in this world And ya gotta try just a little bit harder Ya gotta want it just a little bit more You've got to reach out for the ones that you love and make sure that they don't get in your way if you wanna make it in this world

Ohio 04:46
I can't catch my breath my chest feels tight Cause the air's way to cold out here tonight And just as soon as you start to break the ice It melts away right before your eyes But that's the way things are around here That's the way the winter is here in Ohio This heavy air is makin my head spin Because this heat just feels so stifling And just as soon as you find that comfort from the shade Oh ya just look up as the sun it slowly fades away But that's the way things are around here That's the way the summer ends here in Ohio, Ohio You can barely tell where it ends and it all begins but that's just the way it is here in Ohio, Ohio So many faces, in the crowd tonight You can barely move, its packed in here so tight Some of them smile and help as you pass on through But some of them wanna hold you down if its the last thing they do But that's the way folks are around here That's the way they've always been here in Ohio, Ohio, Ohio, Ohio Ohio, Ohio You can barely tell where it ends and it all begins but that's just the way it is here in Ohio, Ohio You can barely tell where it ends and it all begins but that's just the way it is here in Ohio, Ohio

Always 03:52
We polished all their nickels And we shined up all their shoes But there's not much they can take from us When we've got nothin to loose Now we're holdin on real tight to what we've got left So just you loo into my eyes And don't you ever second guess That I am here, Always Yes I am here, Always We've don everything they wanted Yea we stuck right to their plan But still they wanna take this roof from us that we built with our two hands Oh but we're not goin down without a fight Cause I won't let them take away where you lay your head at night Cause I am here, Always Yes I am here, Always Always, Always Always We get knocked down, though our bank accounts And we're bleedin in check-out lines And the only freedom they offer us Still cost nineteen ninety five We've got a long road ahead We've got a long road ahead We've got a long road ahead I am here, I am here, I am here Always, Always, Always
10.
You ain't never had, just what you wanted Things didn't turn out, quite like you planned And Money, You ain't had enough Oh and just makin ends meet always seemed kinda tough Oh and you're borrowin from Peter to pay Paul Oh and that answerin machine's full of collection calls But hold your head high, cause things are lookin up Oh I know you don't have much but you've got each other and ain't that enough? Pick your chin up, everything's gonna be alright Just give it time, Oh just give it time And keep your head high It's been a long road, but some how you've gotten this far Oh but that dead end, seems closer and closer each day You say "Honey, I don't know how much more of this I can take. Cause it don't matter how hard that I try I just can't catch a break." Oh and you're tryin to look on the bright side But all you can see is this darkness when you close your eyes but try To hold your head high, cause things are lookin up Oh I know you don't have much but you've got each other and ain't that enough? Pick your chin up, everything's gonna be alright Just give it time, Oh just give it time Keep your head high, cause things are lookin up Oh I know you don't have much but you've got each other and ain't that enough? Pick your chin up, everything's gonna be alright Just give it time, Oh just give it time And keep your head high

about

Released 12/7/2012

This is the debut self-titled album by The New Old-Fashioned. The New Old-Fashioned is a Rock-n-Roll / Alternative Country band hailing from the Dayton, Ohio area. The New Old-Fashioned pairs big vocal harmonies with songwriting that really paints a picture of life in the current Midwestern United States. Led by vocalist and songwriter David Payne, the voices of Kent Montgomery(Guitar), Tom Blackbern(Bass) are are all very present on the record making for big almost choral sounding vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Beach Boys or The Beatles, two groups these guys really aspire to. All these vocals sit very comfortably atop a thick wall of sound created with help from producer/engineer Patrick Himes(Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch, Shrug, Bonneville).

If you love the heartland rock sound of Tom Petty or Bruce Springsteen and the harmonies or Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, you should find this album right at home on your shelf and in your player.
