krotix Strong front woman who is aided by a band that fills the air with traditional country sounds. Hard for me to key in on this genre as I am primarily Punk/Rock/Pop oriented. Favorite track: New Ways to Fail.

ivanerik What a wonderful album, great to listen to back to back with Sidelong. I have them on all the time now, and if I didn't have such a terribly responsible life to lead I'd certainly accompany each listen with a bottle of whiskey too, cos these are great drunken tunes about life's ups and downs. So good that they're enjoyable whilst sober too.
Oh, and this album's title track "Years" is sublime! ... but I can't select it as favourite for some reason. Favorite track: The Bottler Never Lets Me Down.

about

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Sarah Shook & The Disarmers are a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on the usual country spin on shitty relationships, bad decisions, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons.

Track Name: Good As Gold
I’m afraid of losing
Not afraid of losing you
Cos I don’t think of you like I thing of mine that I can just up and lose

I’m afraid of losing
Losing everything to you
My heart my pride, a wreck inside
Nothin’ on this jukebox ‘cept the blues

But baby if you go it’s over for good
And I’m as good as gone
No it won’t be long til the wrong song comes on at the right time
You’re as good as gold
’m as good as gone

I’m worn out from worry
Not worry over you
Cos with my troubles mine you’ll be just fine
In whatever world you choose
Track Name: New Ways to Fail
It seems my way of livin’ don’t live up to your standards
And if you had your way I’d be some proper kinda lady
Well the door is over there if I may speak with perfect candor
You’re welcome to walk through it any old time that you fancy


Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head
It was more the way the words came out than the things you said I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed
Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day
Just gonna lie here and complain instead


I will survive without your love don’t you dare pretend I won’t
Been all alone before and lived to tell the tale
Every day here lately damned if I do damned if I don’t
Thought we found a good thing seems I keep findin’ new ways to fail

Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head
It was more the way the words came out than the things you said I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed
Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day
Just gonna lie here and complain instead


Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head
It was more the way the words came out than the things you said I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed
Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day
Just gonna lie here and complain instead
Just gonna lie here and complain instead
Track Name: Over You
I recall the way things used to be
Back in the beginning
And it ain’t at all the way you now come to me
And nobody here is winning
We lost it all along the way
You let me fall into the fray
What’s left of us in just a needle in the hay


I don’t wanna try again this time
I’m all over you, I’m all over you
I don’t wanna cry again cos I’m too tired
I’ve had more than enough
You can’t tell me that this is love


Those were the days when love was not a lie you told
But the brightest flames of love can grow cold
Everybody knows how a feelin’ comes and goes
And when it slips away it somehow always shows
You let me slip between the cracks
And I tried so hard to find my way back
In so many ways so many times I can’t keep track

I don’t wanna try again this time
I’m all over you, I’m all over you
I don’t wanna cry again cos I’m too tired
I’ve had more than enough
You can’t tell me that this is love

I don’t wanna cry again cos I’m too tired
I’ve had more than enough
You can’t tell me that this is love
Track Name: The Bottler Never Lets Me Down
Every day you tell me I’m a drunkard
And every night you lie awake and stew
I never claimed to be anything other, darlin’
Cos the bottle never lets me down the way you do

Every night I sit til sunup drinkin’
And every day I wait for night to fall
So I can clear the darkest memories from my recollection
And hear no sounds and feel nothing at all


The bottle never lets me down
You won’t find it runnin’ round
In the darkest corners of this town, away from me
No I keep this bottle close in hand
It’s the only thing left I got that I can
Make me feel the man I used to be


I never want to remember the joy you brought me
Oh how I used to laugh, I loved the things we’d do
I’ve forgotten all about the things that could be, darlin’
Cos the bottle never lets me down the way you do

The bottle never lets me down
You won’t find it runnin’ round
In the darkest corners of this town, away from me
No I keep this bottle close in hand
It’s the only thing left I got that I can
Make me feel the man I used to be

Make me feel the man
Make me feel the man
Make me feel the man I used to be
Track Name: Parting Words
I’m left here alone with this hole in my heart that just keeps growin’
She took every single little thing with her that she owns and left me with only parting words


Parting words can’t wrap their arms around me
And make a sea of love for a home
Parting words won’t keep my heart from hurting
While you sail away with all the light I’ve ever known
But I deserve
Parting words


I was a fool and I was careless, she was a fool to see anything in me
When I had her love I was fearless, but my hard livin’ took my lovin’ one away

Parting words can’t wrap their arms around me
And make a sea of love for a home
Parting words won’t keep my heart from hurting
While you sail away with all the light I’ve ever known
But I deserve
Parting words
Track Name: What it Takes
We can’t win for losin’
Fightin’ every step of the way
Battles we shouldn’t be choosin’
Prices too high for us to pay

Nobody told me it’s like this out here

Is that what it takes
It takes everything
It costs us all we have
This love


I can hear the voice of my mother
Echoing down through the years
Saying love your sisters and brothers
That’s why we’re all put here

Nobody told me it’s like this out here

Is that what it takes
It takes everything
It costs us all we have
This love


Is that what it takes
It takes everything
It costs us all we have
This love

This love
This love
This love
Track Name: Lesson
Heartaches on long breaks I learn from my mistakes
Hope you do, too
Hard turns and slow burns the wounded heart still learns
Hope you do, too


I wanna learn me my lesson and move on
I wanna keep on lovin’ til the lovin’s gone
Cos I can see that sometimes weak is somehow strong
And I knew it all along
Didn’t you


Steel traps and throwbacks I try to trace my tracks
Hope you do, too
Long range and short change I find everything strange
Hope you do, too

I wanna learn me my lesson and move on
I wanna keep on lovin’ til the lovin’s gone
Cos I can see that sometimes weak is somehow strong
And I knew it all along
Didn’t you

High hopes and short ropes I try to change my scope
Hope you do, too
Drunk nights and fistfights I’m down by the bright lights
Hope you are, too

I wanna learn me my lesson and move on
I wanna keep on lovin’ til the lovin’s gone
Cos I can see that sometimes weak is somehow strong
And I knew it all along
Didn’t you

Didn’t you
Didn’t you
Didn’t you
Track Name: Damned if I Do, Damned if I Don't
I didn’t mean to stay out all night drinkin’
I didn’t mean to stay out til the break of day
I didn’t mean to stay out til the goddam cows came home
Please believe me it just happened this way
Oh darlin, please believe me it just happened this way


I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home
I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door
Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in”


I wasn’t fixin’ to stay til closin’ time
I hadn’t planned on runnin’ into that moonshine
I tried to get me home by 8 but I was 10 hours too late
Please believe me it just happened this way
Oh darlin, please believe me it just happened this way

I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home
I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door
Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in”

There was no plate of dinner in the oven
So I know I ain’t about to get no lovin’
I didn’t mean to stay out til the goddamn cows came home
Please believe me it just happened this way
Oh darlin, please believe me it just happened this way

I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home
I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door
Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in”


I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home
I’ll be damned if I do
I’ll be damned if I don’t
I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door
Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in”

’ll be singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin light outside let me in”
Track Name: Heartache in Hell
I’ve been here before
Waitin’ round my door
For somebody I know for sure ain’t comin’ around
The hours and minutes pass by
I swear I ain’t gonna cry
Just walk the floors over you til I die, cos I drowned

I drown in sorrow again just playin’ my part
I drown in whiskey and then I tear out my heart
I’d give anything I possess
To drown even a little less
But I ain’t cut out for it

I could never tally the cost
Of all of the loves I have lost
All the times and the ways I been crossed when I was too dumb to tell
This time I ain’t even gonna try
And I bet all’a you know just why
Cos all y’all been right here at some time in heartache and hell

I drown in sorrow again just playin’ my part
I drown in whiskey and then I tear out my heart
I’d give anything I possess
To drown even a little less
But I ain’t cut out for it

I drown in sorrow again just playin’ my part
I drown in whiskey and then I tear out my heart
I’d give anything I possess
To drown even a little less
But I ain’t cut out for it

But I ain’t cut out for it
Track Name: Years
I been waitin’ round here for too long
Hopin’ love would find a way
Wishin’ you were good for me
And that time would surely prove me wrong


I been askin’ nature for a sign
Listenin’ for a certain call
Some kinda writin’ on the wall
A pattern in the lack of a design

There was a time you were good to me
And we took on new frontiers
There was a time you were kind to me
But baby it’s been years

I been waitin’ round here for too long
Lettin’ dust collect on my
Sense of who am I and I
Believe you saw this comin’ all along

There was a time you were good to me
And we took on new frontiers
There was a time you were kind to me
But baby it’s been year


Baby it’s been years since I knew how to move you
Can’t recall the last time you said my name the way you used to
All these years and what do we have to show
We been pickin’ up the pieces far to slow

Years
Years
