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 - No Darkness No More
There are scars on the road 
where we skidded and we swerved
We never made it far
but we got what we deserved


I don't need to be remembered 
but don't want to be forgotten
Next time you see me I’ll still be
try na move this mountain

There are places you can hide
You can't hide from your own mind
Thoughts interspersed
Memories intertwined

A year feels like a week
A week feels like a year
Some days I drive the transport
Other days I am the deer

Sometimes I don't know 
which one I'd rather be
the freedom of 
not knowing whats in front of me

Instinct and survival
Crisp and cool mountain air
No logging miles and making plans 
for which I do not care

No darkness no more x 3

oh,oh,wooooh oh etc.


don't hurry to your judgement
i won't hurry to my pain
save me the awkward smile
as you pretend to know my name
there was a time when i meant something
to someone in this town

but one day she stole my pickup
and she never turned around
won't bore you with my stories
we've covered all that ground
somewhere there is a place
for a begger just like me
no more beggin for a dollar
no more beggin to be seen


no darkness no more X 3

oh wowoh
Track Name: Tom Savage - Mercy Killing
This ain't no mercy killing
you oughta know by now
there'll be no more forgiving
we already tried that out

We aren't gonna make it easy
we're gonna take it nice and slow
gonna go down deeper
then you ever thought you could go

You've done your share of damage
Up and down the west coast
But you were too damn stupid
to know you should never boast

Word gets around
In the circles we keep
One day the shit won't stick
Next thing you know you're in waist deep

this ain't no mercy killing
but you oughta be thanking me
Cause I ain't by far
your worst enemy

this ain't no mercy killing
Track Name: Lunatic Baby
stark raving mad
i'm a lunatic baby
but you don't want to get
the wrong impression of me

I'm wanted in 49 and a half states baby
the only place that they don't want me is in southern tennessee

i was born into a low-budget hollywood movie
my daddy had a six-gun and he did what he pleased

my mama tried to raise me as best as she could
but her best wasn't good enough so you get what you see

we moved from town to town
Daddy'd get himself to workin
But then he'd end up robbing the local liquor store

One day he shot the store clerk
and he ended up in prison
Then all that was left
Was my poor Mama and me

My Daddy got the chair
My mama found religion
I found the keys to his pickup
An '89 Ford

I rolled down the interstate
Lay waste to all that I saw
An angry little boy
My Mama's demon seed

Now you don't have to wonder
why i am the way i am
It's the cards that i was dealt
and that's how it's gotta be

once you step inside this truck
you're world's changed forever
Cause I don't let nobody
take nothin' from me

stark raving mad
i'm a lunatic baby
Track Name: Tom Savage - 49 More To Go
these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go

You say you got problems I'm sure you do
But i've got enough of my own

these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go



Got no money to pay the rent
11 more months to go

don't even have enough collateral
to get myself a pay day loan

Got no money to pay the rent
11 more months to go




the preacher says i should pray to god
he's the only who gives a damn

well he didn't say exactly
but that's how interpreted the man

the preacher says i should pray to god
he's the only who gives a damn




but i think i'll just go rob a bank
seems like the smartest thing to do

Get myself a bag of cash
maybe take a caribbean cruise

but i think i'll just go rob a bank
seems like the smartest thing to do



60/40 split if you drive the car
to make our get away

And if you got a buddy's place where we can stay
maybe lay low for a few days

60/40 split if you drive the car
to make our get away



Turned out I didn't have the nerve
to go through with it after all

Life can be hard , it can be real tough
But I'm in it for the long haul

Turned out I didn't have the nerve
to go through with it after all




these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go

You say you got problems I'm sure you do
But i've got enough of my own

these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go

these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go
