Julia 04:12
If she tells you she love’s you is it just a wicked game You’ve been hurt enough times to know the sweetness and the pain When you look into her eyes is there something she won’t say… Something before you walk away Everything you own is locked in the back seat of your car You see the sun surrendering to the neon of the bar It’s a story you now too well, she didn’t have to say Something before you walk away Julia, is just a word for a love that couldn’t be Julia stole your heart and you’ve never gotten free From her You used to know how to loose yourself On these streets you know so well Old me play guitar beside the residence hotel The same people are still outside. The same stories and alibis It only seems as if time is standing still Chorus Summer breeze blows through the trees and the cars are moving slow You find yourself in memories of a girl you used to know All caught up in a shade of blue over a lover that wasn’t true Maybe it’s time you finally let her go Chorus
3.
From the moment I saw you with your light all around you Just as true as the words of this song Men have long tried to hold you, tried to bind and control you But the free life is were you belong They all tell you to change, quit your fool hearted ways But I’d put my money on you People work all their lives, but they just fade away While you keep rolling steady and true Yes, it’s true that I love you, but I’ll ask little of you For I know of your traveling ways I been rocked in your arms just like all the others Could I ever convince you to stay? Chorus From the old Mexicana, to the dark Louisiana To the white rolling waves of the sea What makes you so wild that you just keep on moving Tell me, are you just lonesome like me? Chorus

Marryanne 03:43
So much has changed With the passing of the years Funny that the sun still falls That way upon the hills If this road could carry me back where I started from I guess that I’d be there Me and my old shoes agree This ‘aint any place to settle down You can see the old machinery But now there’s hardly Anyone around Farewell, Madam Rose And your Sunday morning clothes I’ll be o my way Y’know she used to walk around Just like some kinda beauty queen ‘cause all the boys had longed to hold her in the town from which she came people just get dizzy chasing after everything seems like every road get’s rought along the way Maryanne, Maryanne How long has the train been gone? This empty station makes an awful sound When I thought you loved me Honey, it made me feel so strong Seems like no one wants to know you When you’re down When the stars come out at night Feel as if my heart just might explode Hush pretty baby, don’t you cry Your daddy’s just a while Down the road He’ll be coming round the bend On the cool, cool wind With his great big load
5.
There’s a dance that is known As the star of the eastern hall There’s a dance that they call, Belarus Though it’s not at all And the music goes drifting around In it’s dizzying sway And they harness the lights So to dance till the light of day The song of the old and the new And the wind in the trees as they sway Calling, hey, hey, pretty birds Now that you’re here will you stay And the streets here are named After saints that have been and gone And the stories we tell to their memory Still carry on Lovers and dreamers and sinners Have all come this way Just to be like the child with his hand In the lion’s mane Repeat chorus What one was a fortress is now Just a broken door What once was an ocean Is now just a canyon floor Come gather together And dance while you may This song only plays for so long Then it’s gone away Repeat chorus
6.
One hundred years can make the whole world change One hundred years can free me from this pain One hundred years my heart could love again But that’s a long, long time and it’s foolish to pretend That your love could free me If you’d only see me If you’d only forgive me Like you did before One hundred years can turn the sea to flame One hundred years can free me from this chain One hundred years my heart could love again But, Honey, I don’t think I’ll live a hundred years And your love could free me If you’d only see me If you’d only forgive me Like you did before One hundred years my tears can fall like rain One hundred years don’t make me wait in vain One hundred years you’ll take me back again But that’s a long, long time and it’s foolish to pretend ‘Cause Honey, I don’t think I’ll live a hundred years

When I was younger I was such a sight to see When I believed that I could win And all life’s pleasure seem to flow right into me I had no idea that it would end Those pretty faces, how they fueled my wild desires Took me ever further from our door To the late night places where I’d spend the late night hours Spilling wine and whiskey on the floor I was pretty but now I’m not so young This old city is not where I came from But it’s where they’re gonna bury me Can you hear me mother, can you hear your only son Will you turn away in dark disgrace I’m so ashamed of all the damage that I’ve done I can’t bear to look you in the face I’ve said I’m sorry at least a hundred times Still it doesn’t change a thing ‘cause I just can’t help it when it comes to drinkin’ wine no matter how much misery it brings repeat chorus I spend the evening in a lonely little room Watch the stars turn crooked in the sky Till it don’t matter if it makes me lose my mind Just to still the pain of memories and time When I was younger I was such a sight to see When I believed that I could win And all life’s pleasure seem to flow right into me I had no idea that it would end

Glorieta 03:33
Glorieta in the sun, shining like a dime I been on an all night run tryin’ to make it back in time I can see that dusty road, I can smell the sugar pine Glorieta shining in the sun The radio got busted out and you’ve been on my mind Seems I didn’t give enough and then I gave too much at times No, I’ve never figured out what this world is all about But it felt like home when you were mine Had a drunk in Reno, got a flat in San Antone Met a girl in Cheno, but I ended up alone Moving on is easy when you ‘aint got much to lose When it’s just the only way you know Now, those clouds look just like cotton as they drift across the sky And I’m feeling lucky now, but I couldn’t tell you why They say the worlds a stage and every one must play a part Sure enough, it goes, for you and I Glorieta in the sun, shining like a dime I been on an all night run tryin’ to make it back in time I can see that dusty road, I can smell the sugar pine Glorieta shining in the sun Glorieta shining in the sun Glorieta shining in the sun
9.
I gotta mind to say, Maybe it’s time we just stop talking You know it’s harder than hard Enough to get through Don’t wanna be no slave To the dream that I thought would save me Sometimes I think it’s a shame What people get used to Standin’ on the corner with your head on fire Standin’ on the corner with your head on fire Standin’ on the corner with your head on fire When the music stops and the magic falls apart I gave ‘em what was mine I gave ‘em all of my time for the money For everyone there’s a vice That can lie to you Thought I knew the plan I even tried to speak for the maker In spite of every other belief I came to find untrue Repeat chorus I went down to the marketplace Just to be among the crowd Saw an angel with a broken face Talking to the world out loud They kicked the king from the village green And they burned his red house down Helicopter, helicopter flying in the sky Did you ever do anybody any good There’s an accident on the interstate And the crews are standing by But what’ll they do What’ll they do now

Long Gone 03:15
When I die don’t bury me beneath the rocks Throw my body in the sea, don’t put me in no box If Heaven won’t accept me for something that I’ve don’t I’ll take my chances underneath that burning sun Sometimes I think that loving you is just a crazy dream Seems like everything I do just makes you wanna scream Your hair is like an amethyst, your mouth is like a rose You’re so unworldly and you smile ‘cause you know You know honey, I think that I’ll be alright But I’d be happy if you’d just be mine tonight And I’d wake up in the morning with the sunshine on my face Half a pint of whiskey and a quart of gasoline One helps to soothe the jagged edge, one makes the engine sing There’s a highway to take me there, one to lay me down I dream to keep keep my head up and I never let it down When I see your’ pretty face what do you think I’d do There’s no one that could take your place, I wouldn’t lie to you Your’ eyes are like an open sky, they fill my heart with joy You be my lover girl I’ll be your lover boy chorus
11.
There’s a great big moon in the sky Does it sit up there in Heaven with no care I wonder if it looks at you and I The stars shine like diamonds in her hair Is she all alone on the telephone With the sun always half a world away Sayin’, wait for me, you’re my only one And I’ll hold you in my arms again someday Stars that shine, stars that fall Big and small, deep and wide Over here and on the other side I keep a picture on my wall It’s a memory that I have of you and me Though the ways in which we’ve changed Are only small There’s a little more in everything I see To hold me down, when you’re not around Telling me of all that we’ve become To comfort me when I’m feeling down As the days make their way around the sun Repeat chorus There’s a wind in the curtains of the room And it tells me that the winter’s coming neigh But it’s warm ‘cause I’m lyin’ next to you I can listen to you breathing if I try Fast asleep with the things you keep In your dreams always half a world away Please wake to me, you’re my only one And I wouldn’t want it any other way Repeat chorus
12.
When I was a gambler, I gambled all around When I quit my gambling ways I got a job in town But I am not a miner for the things that cannot be I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me When I met my true love, I knew she loved me too We made each other promises like lovers often do But I am not a miner for the things that cannot be I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me I know it every time my darlin’ sits upon my knee And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me I’ve had my share of troubles and I cry my share of tears But I believe my trials are like my own souveneers And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me As far as I can wander, as far as I can see And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me There’s a shadow on the mountain, and the river’s deep and green There’s a mystery in everything that keeps from being seen And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me The breezes in the branches and the gales upon the sea And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me

about

Matty Charles’ gift for songwriting is the backbone of this dynamic duo. The honesty and simplicity with which he explores themes of love, loss and longing is poignant and captivating.

His lyrics “bring to mind Johnny Cash, ...(and at) other times a less twangy Robert Earl Keen. An instant classic.” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine)

“Instead of songs about sadness that leave listeners feeling alone, Charles’ lyrics and smooth guitar riffs wrap their arms around his listeners and hold them tight.” (SF Reporter)

Katie Rose brings a new dimension to the exceptionally strong foundation that Charles has created with his remarkable songwriting by building upon the framework of these songs with her insightful arrangements and diverse harmonies, often haunting and unexpected.

The duo is honored to have worked on their new release Catching Arrows with legendary musicians, Nick Forster on mandolin, tenor and electric guitar, David P. Jackson and Arcellus Sykes on the upright bass, Joel Savoy on fiddle and guitar and Kevin Major on drums.

Nick Forster is a member of the GRAMMY nominated bluegrass band, Hot Rize. He is also founder, producer and host of the radio show, E Town, based in Boulder, Colorado

David P. Jackson, an original member of Dillard and Clark, and Hearts and Flowers, has played and sung with such luminaries as Kenny Rogers, Hoyt Axton, Jackson Brown and Dwight Yoakam. The California Country Music Association honored Jackson as best instrumentalist.

GRAMMY award winning musician, Joel Savoy is the founder of the Louisiana based label, Valcour Records. He is also a two time winner of the Cajun French Music Associations Fiddler of the Year award.

Kevin Major plays drums in a variety of classic country bands in Portland, Oregon.

Arcellus Sykes plays bass in several Portland bands including, Ural Thomas & the Pain. He also works as a session musician.
