The lonesome harmonies of Knight and Barclay ride alongside Chapman's bluesy guitar work, weaving a surprisingly layered sound.

Biography

We play music together as men without a country.

We express our lives and loves through the music of the working man's saints.

Lyrics

This Man

Written By: Camel City Drivers

It's eighty-one, harvest light
Waking me up in the middle of the night
She's up late playing host
To the fretters, to the ghosts
This man, this man
took one on the chin

The room went up quick, the sawdust flew
Little pink walls, carpet, too
You heard what they said, you're old enough,
Your Ma and me, we got it rough
We're selfish, but that don't
Mean a thing about you

(Chorus) This man, this man
Took one on the chin

They hitched up in a garden town
Her feathers didn't make a sound
Took dappled sun, took his hand
and giggling, took the bourbon down
This man, this man
Who could mend a torn moon

She'd grown up with an architect
With her rage and come correct
And his ramblings, New Englais
And his poolside lacrosse play
Not perfect, but perfect's a seven-letter word

(Chorus) This man, this man
Who could mend a torn moon

It's eighty-one, harvest light
Waking me up in the middle of the night
She's up late playing host
To the fretters, to the ghosts
This man, this man
Wanted something to last

(Chorus) This man, this man
Wanted something to last
