lyrics

You got all kinds of time
To spend another man's dimes
On disappointment
It seems your city didn’t want you
And neither did mine
I think that’s sayin’ some’n'
“Here, boy, have a cigar
And hop in my car
To the studio”
Then you ride, just the two of you
He takes you for a fool
With no clue, though

Did your Momma teach you
Did your Momma teach you no good?
You bought a truck before you thought to look
Under the hood

You’re the Perfect False Prophet
Small hands in big pockets
Just to cheat a few
But the Street Rat deep in you
Is a cheap-seat in a venue
Nobody goes to
So help yourself to first class
And kiss all kinds of ass
To win the World now
But when the Big Banks come callin’
They’ll catch you a-fallin’
With your pants down

Did your Momma teach you
Did your Momma teach you no good?
You bought a truck before you thought to look
Under the hood

Mister Man-Child is gettin' mean again
But don't be scared
He got a beer can in his hand
And a grand master plan
To go nowhere
You say we gotta feed the bums
But brother, look at yourself!
Everything you half-make
Ends up rotting away
On a shelf
Can’t you tell?
It’s yourself!

‘Cause your Momma didn’t teach you
No, your Momma didn’t teach you no good
You bought a truck before you thought to look
Under the hood
I said your Momma didn’t teach you
Oh, your Momma never teach you no good
You sold your truck before you thought to look
Under the hood

OJR Nashville, Tennessee

Crossing a broad range of styles from indie-folk/blues/Americana to grunge/psychedelia/rock n’ roll, OJR blends a variety of familiar influences (Neil Young; T-Rex; Nirvana, to name a few) with his own prolific songwriting ability and ear-catching southern vocal style. The result is a soul-scratching, modern homage to a vintage sound that’s completely unique and delivered with tons of swagger. ... more
