about

Tom Savage Trio Kingston, Ontario

Kingston, Ontario's Tom Savage Trio have been putting their own unique stamp on the Country music genre since 2007, when they began the process of putting songs together for their critically-acclaimed debut release, The County Line. The result was the birth of what Bassist Geoff Chown coined " Dirt Road Rock And Roll"- a blending together of Rock, Alternative Country, Blues, and Jam band elements. ... more

Track Name: Tom Savage - Something To Sell
everyone's got something to sell
i count myself amongst everybody

you might say were all going to hell
but i think everyone needs a little money

you sell hope
they sell fear
you sell massey ferguson
they sell john deere

you sell grapes
i'll sell the wine

and the idea that everything is gonna be just fine


everyone's got something to sell
i count myself amongst everybody

you might say were all going to hell
but i think everyone needs a little money


you sell truth
they sell lies

you sell peace
they sell their battle cries

you sell space
i'll sell time

and the idea that everything is gonna be just fine


everyone's got something to sell
i count myself amongst everybody

you might say were all going to hell
but i think everyone needs a little money


you sell sun
they sell rain

you sell joy
they sell pain

you sell cars
they sell trains

you sell your heart
they sell your brains

you sell weed
they sell cocaine

they sell loss
you sell gain

you sell the end
i'll get in line

to tell everyone everything is gonna be just fine
Track Name: Come Back Home Again
why do i
feel like i
been through this
all before

here i am
walking out the door

all we do
struggle through
every day
is just a bore

here i am
walking out the door

try so hard
to be the one
that you want me to be

we'll get it right
again someday
maybe baby we'll just wait and see

the moon is full
my spirit's low
this whiskey's messing with my brain

all i want to do is
to come back home again
Track Name: Just Kids
this storm is gonna rip you in half
the gods will make you feel their wrath
this pimp is gonna shake you down
and then give you the run around

this corner's gonna tell the truth
even if you think you're bulletproof
this night is gonna eat you alive
buzzin like a bee that's protecting the hive


you introduce your arm to the syringe
down in the alley for your late night binge
no one can see you here anymore
nobody left around to mind the store

your parents mourned your loss long ago
or maybe their expectations hit a plateau
hope springs eternal when gardens are in bloom
then the weather changes, it's all gloom and doom



CHORUS

remember when you was 4 years old
running through the garden hose
everyone laughing and smiling
the sun it shone so bright then

remember when we were just kids
doing what young kids did
it's so hard to believe that we were those people
how did we get so far away



the cop flashes a light in your eyes
you wonder if he can empathize
with you laying here covered in the mud
mixed in with the piss and the blood

the night is your only shade
protects you from the life you betrayed
you used to be the belle of the ball
don't know how you ended up so small


CHORUS
Track Name: Slow Walker, Fast Talker
slow walker
fast talker
big dreamer
quiet screamer

undecided
misguided

unrepentant
whatever that meant
instinctive
knows where you live

headline grabber
endless jabber
early riser
advertiser

high beams
ghetto scenes
flat tire
gun fire

hospital bed
hole in his head

life support
order in the court
judge & jury
there's no hurry

He's passed on
Yes he's gone
Hearse is rolling
There'll be life without paroling

slow walker
fast talker x2
