Playing & making music is not just a passion, it’s also an
obsession which keeps you chasing that dream. Like any
obsession, pursuing a dream comes at a cost and the
quest for ‘New Money’ to keep you going, is always an
elusive and just around the next bend quest. Here’s our
‘Blues on The Border’ with a nice little swing courtesy of
the rhythm section


A slow ride to Huston, is how we start today.
With Blues on the border, and there’ll be hell to pay.
Playing for new money, ain’t all milk and honey
But we just won’t quit the game.
A blue plate special, is the meal of the day.
The Cool in the corner, still won’t make his play.
A cheap shot of nothing, can buy some time.
With all bases loaded, we got an axe to grind.
Chorus to End
