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.

Track Name: Don't Let It Die
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
Track Name: Pride of Downtown
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
Track Name: Queen of the Midwest
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
Track Name: Into the Sun
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
Track Name: 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

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
Track Name: Empty Store Fronts
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
Track Name: Chamomile
Well its early in the mornin and I'm trading my coffee for tea
Oh life is a burden on us all and its weighin on me

Oh my body's sore, can't take anymore I just need some relief
Yea you soothe me, like chamomile

This same old, same old is bringin me down
Oh I wake up each day before dawn
while you're still safe and sound asleep

my body's sore, can't take anymore I just need some relief
Yea you soothe me, like chamomile, like chamomile
You lighten my load and give ne someone to hold onto
You soothe me like chamomile


my body's sore, can't take anymore I just need some relief
Home's where I wanna be
Yea you soothe me, yea you soothe me,
Yea you soothe me, like chamomile, like chamomile
You lighten my load and give ne someone to hold onto
Oh yea ya do
You soothe me like chamomile
Like chamomile
Track Name: Ohio
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
Track Name: Always
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
Track Name: Chin Up, Darlin'
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
