The music is smooth as a big old Cadillac rolling up dust across a hot Texas prairie -- soothing as a cool clear night one minute, rough as a ride on a bucking bronco the next.

Biography

BroncoBilly was officially re-formed in the spring of 2002 to fill a void. The two original members, D.U. Jamison (lead vocals, guitar) and Dean-o Romero Atwater, Jr. (backing vocals, guitar) met up at a rodeo in Sterling City, Texas, roundabout 1992. The two got down to business and played the best music they could from the start. After going nowhere fast and a few fist fights, they went their separate ways. A couple years ago, the two met up again by chance in a Greyhound Station outside of Cincinnati, Ohio and decided to reform. Soon thereafter, D.U. and Dean-o came across Bill Donabedian who offered to join up and put a beating on the skins. He also gets his licks in whenever possible about the songs and how they might be improved.

Nowadays, BroncoBilly gets together to drink Maker's Mark, write songs, make music and reminisce about the old days spent North of the Concho River. The music is smooth as a big old Cadillac rolling up dust across a hot Texas prairie -- soothing as a cool clear night one minute, rough as a ride on a bucking bronco the next. BroncoBilly plays it like they see it and they don't plan on bailing out too early this time.

Lyrics

Up and Go

Written By: BroncoBilly

When she was a girl
With nothing
No plan
She mounted and rode
Into the hot Texas wasteland.
There was no going back
To where she was from.

Up and go
It's what you do.
Blow it up
Try something new.

One morning that first year
The sun it broke over the ridge
And she stared it down
As it grew
Til she had to look away.

And I found her in Reno
Livin' out of a paper bag
I brought her home and waited.

Up and go
It's what you do.
Blow it up
Try something new.

She's out there
Somewhere
Lookin' for a sign
Ready to run.
When the time it comes
to be gone
She's ready
She's ready to run.

Up and go
It's what you do.
Blow it up
Try something new.

Woman in the Park

Written By: BroncoBilly

The day was long
Under a magnifying glass sun
You looked the part
Of a woman on the run
But you stood your ground
Against who and what
I'm not sure
But you're in my mind
Set in that moment
As you glanced back
Lost and secure
No tears were found
Just a silhouette

And the day was long
Under a magnifying glass sun
Had the light made clear
What needed to be done
And burned away the black?
As you glanced back
Lost and secure
No tears were found
Just a silhouette
Could you see me
I'm not sure
But you're in my mind
Set in that moment

And the day was long
Under a magnifying glass sun
I wish I knew you...

No Connection

Written By: BroncoBilly

There is no connection you say,
No connection you say.
There is no connection you say,
I like it that way.

My strategy it finally paid,
You walked upstairs and I got laid.
And now you're gone.

Months of boredom and shame
Why the shame? You're still the same
And I don't like you.

There is no connection you say,
No connection you say.
There is no connection you say,
I like it that way.

You never knew what to do
And now that I am through with you
I'm so relieved.

You think you hold one over me
If that's your solace, it's fine
Cuz I don't care.

There is no connection you say,
No connection you say.
There is no connection you say,
I like it that way.
