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: Stephen Harper is an @##*%&!
Stephen Harper is an asshole
it's pretty plain to see
the only thing he can get right
is screwing up the economy

He'd rather spend billions on fighter jets
than to give funding to the CBC
He even cut my wife's job
at the Kingston Penitentiary


Stephen Harper is an asshole
This is something we all know
So busy cutting the public service
Doesn't think about where those people will go

He'd rather mislead the electorate
than practice democracy
Whoever thought that Canada
Would be governed by the former reform party


I know you must have been bullied as a child, Stephen
some kid made fun of your helmet hair style
but Stephen, please don't take it out on us
Oh no, Stephen please don't it out on us

Stephen harper is an asshole
And though I don't know him personally
his prick-ishness shines through
with his destructive policies

I've dreaded the day his party
would get a majority
and now the only ones who can save us
are the liberals and the NDP....

Green party, natural Law, Marijuana party...

Anybody...please
Track Name: Now is Forever
he's got a 10 dollar suit
and a pistol he can shoot
and a ride to somewhere else
where he ain't feeling sorry for himself

he's got a one track mind
and his mind is keeping track
of everyone who let him down
everyone who paid him back


you've got a 100 dollar pair of shoes
and a feeling like you can't lose
cause if you lost everything
you end up back at the beginning

Again. with your old friends
Standing on the corner and shooting the breeze
you're the shepherd watching over his flock
the bishop of the arch diocese

CHORUS
your the master of your domain
this corner is your kingdom and that's gonna remain
nobody can ever take that away
now is forever and that 's how it's gonna stay


you were friends growing up
he got the hard times , you got the luck
most folks can't choose their path
they take a look at their surroundings they can do the math

He was sinking low, you were rising high
you drifted apart as the years went by
back then you would never say
he'd be back again to take everything away


CHORUS



he fell deep down in that hole
meanwhile you seemed to be on a roll
methamphetamine fuelled his need
you controlled the supply and fed your greed

one day the sickness got him
his heart was weak, his eyes sunken in
he put on his $10 suit
and no one could shake from his pursuit

he shot you dead were you stood
toppled the king of the neighbourhood
nobody can ever take that away
now is forever and how it's gonna stay

CHORUS
Track Name: Someone By Your Side
you ever feel like you've been knocked off your feet
you ever feel like you're incomplete
without that certain someone by your side

you ever feel like you are out of control
you ever feel like there's nowhere to go
without that certain someone by your side

you ever feel like you've lost your way
you ever feel like there's nothing to say
without that certain someone by your side

you ever feel like there's no more you can do
you ever feel like you'll never get through
without that certain someone by your side

why can't I let it be you

you ever feel like you're running away
and there's no confidence you wouldn't betray
without that certain someone by your side

destiny is a hollow dream
you bought into this pyramid scheme
without that certain someone by your side

why can't I let it be you
Track Name: Hungover Heartbroken
I woke up
felt like I got hit by a truck
i should've known better
and when I've had enough
guess this ol' boy will never learn

got on my knees
bowed down before the porcelain god
tried to shake out my disease
then i took some pepto for the burn

hungover heartbroken and now i'm comin down


I was at the bar
didn't expect to see you there
you always said you didn't care
for the company I would keep

My blood ran cold
and that whiskey was staring at me
it ain't time travel but it's more or less free
Or it frees me up so I can feel real cheap


hungover heartbroken and now i'm comin down

hungover heartbroken
the jury has spoken
sentenced to life without parole
to make a mess of this body i'm in

You pulled yourself up
You found your way
I was born in the gutter
And it's where I'm gonna stay

Nobody could ever steer ship around
hungover heartbroken and now i'm comin down


Hair of the dog
Let myself slip into a fog
One of the regulars sits beside me
And proceeds to talk off my ear

By noon I'm numb
By 9 I'll be deaf and dumb
Then I won't have the strength to send you
another thought my dear

hungover heartbroken and now i'm comin down


hungover heartbroken
the jury has spoken
sentenced to life without parole
to make a mess of this body i'm in

You pulled yourself up
You found your way
I was born in the gutter
And it's where I'm gonna stay

Nobody could ever steer ship around
hungover heartbroken and now i'm comin down
