Biography

Chuk Cooley is a bluesy, southern, tattooed rocker trying to share his life story through songs - a story of courage and change that he called “Heart and soul anthems from the streets of hell”. After many years of being in and out of bands, Chuk finally went solo… with words and music he had written over 20 years of hard life. With just an acoustic guitar and his voice, Chuk started opening for heavy metal acts such as Jackyl, Soldiers Of Scrape, Blood of the Sun, Rhino Bucket, and many many others. Though there was something missing, so.. On a dark, rainy October day in Tulsa, Chuk met a bass-player named Sondra Davis and they immediately hit it off and started jamming. A short time later Chuk asked lifelong friend and heavy rock guitarist Tony Loretti to learn a few of the songs for a recording. Chuk and Tony had previously been bandmates in the groundbreaking metal group Berserkr. These additions started to really fill out the sound of Chuk’s songs, and he then recruited drummer Jester. When the four musicians first played together as a unit, the chemistry was immediate and undeniable. After just a few jam sessions it was clear that something very special was happening. With just two acoustic guitars, an acoustic bass, some flute, and a five-piece trap kit, Chuk’s songs came to LIFE.

MOVING MOUNTAINS

Written By: CHUK COOLEY

All Lyrics By:Chuk Cooley
"MOVING MOUNTAINS"
SPIRALING FAST AND HEADED NO WHERE NOW
TO WRECK YOUR BEST LEAVING YOU ASKING HOW
TRIED TO FIND YOUR FIST RAZING HIGH
SOMETIMES LIFE CAN MAKE YOU BREAKDOWN AND CRY
MOVING MOUNTAINS IN DOOMS DARK LIGHT
NEEDING SOMEONE TO HELP MAKE THINGS GO RIGHT
MOVING MOUNTAINS IN MY OWN LIFE
HOPING I CAN LEARN TO LOVE MYSELF BEFORE, BEFORE I DIE.....
GOIN OVER ALL THE HELL IVE BEEN THROUGH
WILL ALWAYS WONDER HOW I EVER FOUND THE TRUTH
FINDING COURAGE TO CHANGE MY DARK TO LIGHT
TOOK SMASHING ALL MY DEMONS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
CHORUS:
BRIDGE:
YOUR LIVING PROOF A LOSER CAN MAKE IT
YOUR LIVING PROOF A DREAMER CAN LIVE IT
YOU BEEN KNOCKED DOWN AND DRAGGED OUT
YOU ONLY GOT THIS ONE LIFE TO LIVE
GET BACK UP AND LIVE AGAIN.......
CHORUS:
CHORUS:

FLASHBACKS OF TEXAS

Written By: CHUK COOLEY

FLASHBACKS OF TEXAS"
6/1991-8/2009
child throwing rocks at cars, just to get chased for fun..
14 tryin to get laid under the stars..
never knowin whats to come, burned out by the age 18
those memories are done
FLASHBACKS OF TEXAS OH ON MY MIND (2X)
grew up stealin motor bikes & hangin with my friends in the nite..
girlfriends dyin from a suicide, wasted dreams of homicide..
but thats the way the desert is, treatin you like your supposed to die..
FLASHBACKS OF TEXAS OH ON MY MIND(2X)
ROLLIN' the streets with cash & coe and a whole lotta skynyrd too..
gettin in fights - cowboys from hell - fist black-n-blue..
whiskey nights & stoned out days & a little acid too..
found alot of danger but i rock-n-rolled through..
FLASHBACKS OF TEXAS OH ON MY MIND(2X)
(BREAK DOWN:)
ive been around the world collecting memories , none of them add
up to TEXAS, well ive met a few girls and none of them add up to the way those Texas Girls _______
FLASHBACKS OF TEXAS OH OH ON MY MIND (4X)
