Music and Lyrics by Glenn Buhr
The Broken Songs Band
Margaret Sweatman, lead vocal
Glenn Buhr, piano/vocals
Richard Moody, viola/vocals
Fred Redekop, mandolin
Greg Lowe, guitar/vocals
Gilles Fournier, bass
The band played on at the High & Lonesome Club,
The trains drifted by, the sun hung in the sky.
And I saw myself, playing guitar on a flat car,
And getting stoned with the redneck railboys.
In those days, I had nothing to say, so in the heat, I sang some songs,
While back home the band played on, at the High & Lonesome Club.
And I’ve been alone here, at the High & Lonesome Club,
Thinking it’s time to cut my losses, time to pick up my gains.
Then someone said: ‘Life is gaining meaning’,
Well I don’t know what she meant by that, but it had a good feeling.
And though she also told me that nothing is ever as it seems,
I found a home in those sea-green eyes,
So I danced with the woman of my dreams, and the band played on,
At the High & Lonesome Club.
