about

Once in a generation comes an album of such clarity, truth and honesty. Imagine, all of this and still just $7.00. It kind of makes you glad to be alive. It does make you wonder though, does the artist still not give a shit?...we may never know, but the answer may lie within.

released June 30, 2017

All songs written, performed, produced and recorded by brian beverly. With additional squeaks, poops and woofs from his dog Cash.
In loving memory to Bendog.

Track Name: Before The Fall
Before the fall
We had our time
I bought the whisky
You bought the wine
Before the fall
We lived like men
Seen the world
And back again

Before the fall
We answered every bell
But as time goes by
It's all before the fall


Before the fall
I seen heavens gate
Turned around man
That's not my fate
Before the fall
We took a bite
Walked through the grave yard
Late at night


Before the fall
I had a mate
Never showed myself
Till 2 hours late
Before the fall
I could hypnotize
Shrink the world
Down to size
Track Name: Jailhouse Wine
I did my time
And I grew old
Though my punishment
Never fit the crime
I had what I had
And I did what I was told
And I made that mess into wine
Jailhouse wine


Life is hard
And it's harder for some
But a dreamers heart will never die
I made my mistakes
And my blue sky's all turned gray
But I squeezed those clouds into wine
Jailhouse wine


Well now I'm bent
And I'm old
Once I was solid straight and cold
Not unlike these bars
And I would if I could
I would waste my life away
And stay drunk all the time on
Jailhouse wine
Track Name: On PCH Again
I see you comin' around the corner
I see you sneakin' 'round the bend
Just a ghost in my mirror
My old friend again
Is that you
Ya' it's me
I just got to ask you
What will it be
Day drinking in a roadhouse
Before the band
Day drinking in a roadhouse
On PCH again

I know you're peepin' through the window
I feel you linger in the room (I see you creepin' down the hall)
Then you sidle up beside me
Like unwanted stale perfume (like some no good so-n-so)
Is that you
Ya' it's me
I just got to ask you
What will it be
Day drinking in a roadhouse
Before the band
Day drinking in the roadhouse
On PCH again

Day drinking in a roadhouse
Before the band
Day drinking in a roadhouse
On PCH again
On PCH again
On PCH again
Track Name: I Ain't Got You
I got a bullfrog
I got a chainsaw
I got a Harley hog
And contempt for the law
But I ain't got you
Oh I ain't got you
I got all that ever mattered
And every dream comes true
But I ain't got you

I got a barrel
Full of fishes
Ducks in every stream
I've lived a man's life
And I never never looked back
But I don't got you
No I don't got you
I've got all the tea in China
And all their money too
But I don't got you

I got ghosts
In the attic
Wishes in the well
And everyone I talk to
Knows just how I feel
That I don't have you
Oh I ain't got you
I got blinds
On my windows
To hide the way I feel
Cause I ain't got you
Track Name: Send It To Me Soon
Send me some money
Send me a ring
Send me some flowers
That bloom in the spring
Send me some pages
From your book
But send it to me soon

Send me a memory
Send me a crate
Full of stories
That I can replay
Send me a riddle
That I can unwind
But send it to me soon

Send me your picture
From deep in the pines
Send me some canvas
To hide my mind
Send me a mystery
By the light of the moon
But send it to me soon
Track Name: What You Want Me To Be
Color me blue
Color me green
Color me rainbow of uncertainty
Color me a picture
And paint my house
Color me a prison with no way out
But just tell me
Tell me what you want me to be

Watch your step
Watch the road
Tell me someplace that you'll never go
Color me a compass
Without of course
Tell me a secret with remorse
But just tell me
Tell me what you want me to be

Color me a preacher
Color me a thing
Build me a statute to antiquity
Color me a reptile
That skids on the sand
Make me a potion 'cause I'm your man
Then just tell me
Tell me what you want me to be
Track Name: That's What They'll Know About You
If you go to bed hungry
And you dream about food
You're ganna wake up hungry
And that's what the'll know about you
That's what they'll know about you
And there won't be any mystery about you baby

If you go to bed mean
And dream about being cruel
You're ganna wake up so mean
And that's what the'll know about you
That's what they'll know about you
And there won't be no mystery about you baby

But it you go to bed happy
And everything is cool
You're ganna wake up happy
And that's what the'll know about you
That's what they'll know about you
And there won't be no wondering about it baby
Track Name: On My Side
I wake up every morning
Toothpaste in my hand
To make a million dollars
Just enough to be a man
Then I'm headed back to Jackson
People there are on my side
I got one eye on my money
And the other on my bride

Here problems don't just pileup
They puddle up like rain
And it's just like when the movies say
You can't go home again
But I'm headed back to Jackson
People there are on my side
I'll be rollin' with the river
Can't take no more poolside

Now I wake up every morning
Breakfast in my bed
I made that million dollars
And it cooled my fevered head
Now I living in deep in Jackson
People here are on my side
And I'm walking through a meadow
My dog Cash by my side
Track Name: Never Doing What You're Told
Young and pretty, bold and free
And never never doing what you're told
That's all right, That's OK
I'm your brother
I'm your father
I'm your friend anyway
Young and pretty, Bold and free
And never never doing what you're told

Miles to go before you sleep
Fire and ice are the friends you keep
That's alright, that's OK
I'm your brother
I'm your father
I'm your friend anyway
Young and pretty, Bold and free
Miles to go before you sleep
And never never doing what you're told
Track Name: Crazy
You say you love me baby
But you treat me like a child
You say you love me baby
But you treat me like a child
I can take crazy
But I wont take it for a while

You say you see me baby
Like a bird out on a line
You say you see me baby
Like a bird out on a line
Well I can take crazy
But I can't take it all the time

Well you can be mad if you want to
And drive the train right off the track
Well you can be mad if you want to
And drive the train right off the track
Cause I can take crazy
But I’d be crazy to take you back
Track Name: One Revolution
I bought my first record
And I put it on the stack
Put the needle in the groove
And I never looked back
Just one revolution
One time spinning ‘round
It took one revolution to make my world go ‘round

Bukka White played for Bob Dylan
And Dylan changed the world
I loved my Jimmy Reed
Like Jimmy Reed Loved his girl
Just one revolution
One time turned ‘round
It took one revolution to make the world go ‘round

You can talk all day
About the Beatles and the Stones
But if you lift up that rock
Muddy Waters stands alone
Just one revolution
One time spinning ‘round
It took one revolution to make the world go ‘round
Track Name: What I Want To Know
I asked my Mama
Which way the wind dose blow
She said baby that’s something
You should know
The wind blows east
And the wind blows from the west
What I want to know
Is which way the wind blows best

I asked my Mama
Which way the river bends
She said away
And back again
I asked my Mama
Which way the river bends
But what I want to know
Is will the river ever end

I asked my Baby
Which way the screw dose turn
She says that’s something every little girl must learn
Some days it turns left
And somedays it turns to the right
But what I want to know
Is will that screw turn tonight
