BandCountryAmericana

10 mile crossing is a 5 piece alternative country act reminiscent of the Eagles, and has been described as the Texas Country version of the super group Alabama.

Biography

This group of artist developed strong friendships over a period of several years while playing in different cover bands. Jeff Buchanan, Brad Windham and David Gist packed the clubs regularly in West Texas during the nineties, fine tuning their showmanship and writing abilities. While Justin Sherwood and Marty Sanders tightened up their rhythm section in front of thousands of service men and women overseas.

When the cover band life wasn’t fulfilling and the overseas journey came to an end, their lives crossed paths again. Through trial and error, sweat and tears, the band 10 Mile Crossing was formed.

In March of 2005, they went into the studio armed with 10 original songs that were written, polished and practiced in a 10X10 room in Brownwood, Texas. The finished product is the result of a year and a half in the studio and many sleepless nights.

The CD made its debut on January 1, 2007 and has been receiving generous airplay on numerous Texas stations as well as attracting the ear of notable Texas A&R lables.

The ink is still wet from the signing of a three year distribution deal with legendary Smith Music Group. Look and listen for 10 Mile Crossing's album due in stores this summer.

Lyrics

i do

Written By: buchanan

do you believe in second chances
after all the newness and
romance has faded
please don’t be jaded
do you believe in hand of fate
God has a plan and is never late
or wrong
no matter how long
well i do, though i don’t always show it
i do, i just needed you to know it
please tell me that there’s a chance
that someday
you might feel the way that i do
do you remember holding hands
our first kiss and all the
plans we made
yeah those were the days
do you remember when i said
our best times are all ahead of us
it’s not over because
well i do, though i don’t always show it
i do, i just needed you to know it
please tell me that there’s a chance
that someday
you might feel the way that i do
do you look at your left hand
where that gold band used to be
do you dust off that diamond
and all those precious memories
well i do,
though i don’t
always show it
i do, i just needed you to know it
please tell me that there’s a chance that someday
you might feel the way that i do

quenching my Texas thirst

so give me back my shiner bock
i’m trying to drown her memory,
but the bartender wont let me
i cant get my baby back,
so put me out of my misery
you know its almost 2:00,
so give me back my shiner bock
well i haven’t been laid in about two months so i substituted
barley and hops
and i just might lose my mind if the
both of you are cutting me off
so pay my tab call me a cab,
stick a fork in me im done
i promise i’ll leave peacefully,
mister all i really want is…..

so give me back my shiner bock

im trying to drown her memory,
but the bartender wont let me
i cant get my baby back,
so put me out of my misery
you know its almost 2:00,

knob creek

i like knob creek and cold cold beer
sunday mornings and having you here
i like the desert and the moon light
on your face
yeah, baby this is the place
this gonna last forever
will this be our final day,
no looking back now
i like good friends just hangin’ around
Texas music and this small town
i like a storm cloud just thunderin
to the ground
listen to the music,
that’s rain comin down
this gonna last forever,
this be our final day
no looking back now, baby were fallin
yes were falling in love again
no lookin back now, baby were fallin
yes were falling in love again
i like drivin’ mile after mile
lazy sunsets always make me smile
but i know where i’ll be
when the sun sets down
holding my baby in the same
small town
is this gonna last forever
will this be our final day,
no lookin back now
baby were falling yes were falling
in love again
no looking back now baby were falling
yes were falling in love again
no looking back now baby were falling
yes were falling in love again
no looking back now baby were falling
yes were falling in love again
no looking back now baby were falling
yes were falling in love
again and again and again
again and again and again……

last september

Written By: buchanan/windham/hunter/bomgardner

i remember our last september in the fall of 92
a college romance we thought we had a chance
and it seemed like the right thing to do
so we moved in together at the end of november
an apartment with a view
we got a king size bed and bills
midnight fights and thrills
it was over before we knew
we had a wonderful time and terrible timing and sometimes at night you know i'm still reminded
about the way you used to call my name out loud when we made love
and oh some how i had a better understanding of who i was
we had a wonderful time and terrible timing
and some times at night you know i'm still reminded
well i heard you got a good life
you made a rich man a good wife and you had a kid or two
he paid for your king size bed and bills your midnight fights and thrills
but he’ll never love you like i do
we had a wonderful time and terrible timing
and sometimes at night i fight the urge to remind him
about the way you used to call my name out loud when we made love
and oh somehow i had a better understanding of who i was
we had a wonderful time and terrible timing and some times at night you know i'm still reminded
we had a wonderful time and terrible timing and sometimes at night you know i’m still reminded
i’m still reminded
about the way you used to call my name out loud when we made love
and oh some how i had a better understanding of who i was
we had a wonderful time and terrible timing
and sometimes at night you know i’m still reminded
don’t you know i’m still reminded
so long ago, so long ago, so long ago, i loved you so
i’ll never say goodbye,
ooooh ooooooh

closer

Written By: windham/buchanan/gist/mccullough/sherwood

i'm not waiting one more moment for you
your drying your hair but i can’t wait till your through
so i start kissing the back of your
neck, and you get chills
then you turn around and look
in my eyes, we're perfectly still
so move on closer to me
its where i want to be
the smell of your skin, the taste of
your lips your all mine, all mine
so move on closer to me,
your blue eyes are all i see
and i know tonight, we’ll be alright
i’m not wasting one more
moment with you
i cancel our dinner reservations,
for two
i get down on one knee, and your eyes they begin to glow
and you don’t have to answer me,
cause i already know
so move on closer to me,
its where i want to be
the smell of your skin the taste
of your lips your all mine, all mine
so move on closer to me,
your blue eyes are all i see.
and i know tonight, we'll be alright.
so move on closer to me,
its where i want to be.
the smell of your skin the taste
of your lips your all mine, all mine
so move on closer to me,
your blue eyes are all i see.
and i know tonight, we'll be alright

red raider plates

Written By: buchanan/windham

here comes the storm clouds
kicking up the red dust this evening
looks like lubbock’s comin to see me
to cover up my sins
i hear the clap of thunder
count the seconds and i wonder
why so many are six feet under
and that flash of light missed me,
i believe that its not in my hands who You will take
and i know You never
make mistakes
when i go is not for me to say
so i guess i’ll live another day
yeah i’ll live another day
he took the corner too fast
on a night just like this evening
last thing i remember seeing
were those red raider plates
on his way from college
a holiday from seeking knowledge
his gmc went off that brazos bridge
why did that flash of lights hit me,
i couldn’t see....
that its not in my hands who
You will take
and i know You never make
mistakes
when i go is not for me to say
well the dps said that he never
slowed down
there were no tracks to measure
on the cold wet ground
but i can’t help thinking if i’d taken
another way
he’d of been home thanksgiving day
here come the storm clouds
kickin up the red dust this evening
looks like lubbock's comin to see me
to wash away my sins

go west

Written By: buchanan/windham

“go west”

i want to see the sun from arizona,
falling into california,
but i'm too far away in this
northern state.
my grandpa told me
when he was younger
he had the dream and the hunger
to sell the john deer and move far
away from here
and go west young man
the palm trees and the sands
are calling
ocean breeze and the stars are falling
go west young man
the winters here in minnesota
can drive a man to california
so go west
i want to leave this place its too
damn cold
get a tan and wear less clothes
quit my job today,
cash out my 401k
tell my boss where he can stick it
buy myself a one-way ticket,
my ex said she’d pack if i never
come back
and go west young man
the palm trees and the sands
are calling
ocean breeze and the stars
are falling
go west young man
the winters here in minnesota
can drive a man to california
so go west
grandpas passed on
but i can still here him calling
it seems all this time
we were wrong
heavens not up but in a
westward direction
either way you’ll be here before long
and go west young man
the palm trees and the sands
are calling
ocean breeze and the stars
are falling
go west young man
the winters here in minnesota
can drive a man to california
