about

Huke Green Channelview, Texas

“Raw as a shot of whisky, no ice. These songs come at you hard and don't let up. Acoustic story-telling straight from a wizened heart. They rock with nary an electric note. They burn going down and will stay with you. ” – Author, Court Merrigan

After his time co-fronting the roots rock band, The Wayward Sons, gravel voiced Huke set out to create a solo album which harkens to his folksy roots and

Track Name: Gaslight
Gaslight

You left me in the middle of the night
I never said I wanted you gone
You left me in a fog of mystery
Never knew what I did wrong

It might sound like an old story
Might sound like the same ol' song
I got a message on the machine
You said you were movin' on


The gaslight's been on 10 miles
and I still got 30 to go
I've been drivin' this car into the ground
'Cause there's somethin' you gotta know

If your gone before I'm there
It'll be a shame you never knew
My heart's broke since you been gone
and I love you... baby I love you


You said you're gone for good this time
You said you ain't comin' back
It was these words that killed my pride
It was time I had to act

If you make it to your Mom's place
I ain't got a chance in hell
She'll be sayin' I's never any good
And if I'm gone it's just as well



The gaslight's been on 20 miles
and I still got 20 to go
I've been drivin' this car into the ground
'cause there's somethin' you gotta know

If your gone before I'm there
It'll be a shame you never knew
My heart's broke since you been gone
and I love you... baby I love you



The gaslight's been on 30 miles
now the engine light is on too
I've been drivin' this car into the ground
'cause there's somethin' I just got to tell you
Track Name: MIdnight Song
Midnight Song

The preacher came to see me
For the very last time
Soon I'll take the long walk
And I'll pay for my crimes

As Midnight fast approaches
It's time to make my peace
Will I see the face of Jesus
Or feel the fury of the beast


The crows sing the midnight song
That tells me it won't be long
To make right what I done wrong
The crows sing... the midnight song


Tell Momma that I love her
It ain't her fault I'll die
Don't want this on her conscience
Lord knows that she tried

To raise me not so o'nery
livin' by the good book
Sorry I got distracted
Taste of sin s'all it took


The crows sing the midnight song
That tells me it won't be long
To make right what I done wrong
The crows sing... the midnight song


The preacher walks to my left
The Devil to my right
I have been a child of his
He'll claim my soul tonight

When they strap me to the chair
Momma just look away
Pull that lever down quick Sir
and I'll be on my way

The crows sing the midnight song
That tells me it won't be long
To make right what I done wrong
The crows sing... the midnight song
Track Name: Prayin' For Rain
Prayin' For Rain

The Sun's Been Shining / Down On Me
But those Bright Skies / I don't want to see
The Ground is Hard / The Soil is Dry
Crops are turning brown / They're Gonna Die


I'm Prayin' for rain / I'm wishin' for storms
I'm hopin' the sun / Don't burn up my corn
Do you hear me Lord / Listen to my plea
A Good Days rain / Is all I need / Is all I Need


I Make My Living / Living off the land
Ground was first plowed / By Grandpa's hand
My Daddy Died here / Gave blood to dirt
I'll give mine too / For all it's worth


A banker came by / said he meant no harm
If I lose this crop / I'll lose my farm
The rows are dry / soil is dust
If the harvest dies / I go bust
Track Name: Blue Blue Eyes
Blue Blue Eyes

We Picnic by the Bayou
Beneath the Summer skies
Sunshine warms your pretty face
And Lights up your blue.... blue, blue eyes

Could I steal a Kiss
Run my fingers through your hair
Let's just hang out for hours
Like we ain't got a care


And I think I see it all
When I look into your blue.... blue, blue eyes.... blue, blue eyes


You're dancing in a sunbeam
Hair swaying on the breeze
Thoughts of life together
They put my mind at ease


Many years from now
I know just where I'll be
Staring at your pretty face
And you'll ask me what I see

And I think I see it all
When I look into your blue.... blue, blue eyes.... blue, blue eyes
Track Name: Ghost
~Ghost~

I sense somethin' that isn't here
I hear a creakin' in the hall
I feel a presence I cannot touch
I'm seeing shadows on the wall


You know I think this house is haunted
But not by some kind of Ghost
It's haunted by the memory
Of the one I love the most


I feel a chill as I lie sleeping
I smell a scent that's in the air
A warm breath across the back of my neck
I turn around and you're not there


You'll be gone a month on Sunday
An' every night I lay down and cry
I wake up on tear stained pillows
and I curse these Ghosts of mine
Track Name: Backwoods
~Backwoods~

Vampires and Werewolves / are out there on patrol
Over the hills and through the woods / waitin' for a lost soul
One will suck you dry / the other 'll clean your bones
The sky is growin' dark / I suggest you just stay home


There are things in these 'ol backwoods / That Lies will never save
They'll all think your crazy / so you take 'em to your grave
Yeah your crazy if you speak of / so you take 'em .. to your grave


The devil's down in Dixie / at this place I've never seen
It ain't like heaven or hell / but somewhere in between
There are angels on the tree tops / snakes down in the dirt
The devil's dancing around the fire / and I ain't saying a word


There's old men and there's moonshine / game of stud by a whiskey still
There's blood and there's money / and secrets for which they'd kill
There's pine-tops and riverbeds / a ghost by a hanging tree
Thing here words can't describe / you gotta see to believe
