Lyrics

Call Me Sweetheart

Written By: Robert McCourty

Country Twanger

Chorus
Don't you ever call me Sweetheart
I know you'll leave me sad and blue,
Don't you ever call me Sweetheart
Until, you prove your Love is true

Verse
I've heard the gossip and the rumours
They say you drink that mountain dew
They say you've been in the jailhouse
At least... for a week or two

Chorus

Verse
I know what you really want boy
Don't try and change my point of view
Once you get what you came for
You'll be gone... just like a bird that flew.

Chorus

Verse
Take away that string of pearls
I won't fall for false romance
Take away that big ol' Diamond ring
We... allright... Maybe just one dance.

Final Chorus
Don't you, ever call me Sweetheart
I know you'll leave me sad and blue,
Don't you ever call me Sweetheart
Until you prove your Love is,
Until you prove your Love is,
Until you prove your Love is true.

Can't Live Like That

Written By: Robert McCourty

My Baby got to talkin' the other night
Near burnt off my ear.
She/He don’t like the way I drive
He don’t like my beer.
He don’t like my point of view, none of the books I’ve read
The way he was talking, you'd think I’d be better off dead.

Chorus
You can’t live like that
(can’t live like that)
Doing what other people say
You can’t live like that
(can’t live like that)
It don’t matter anyway
You can’t live your life pleasing someone else, who might be crazier than you
You can’t live like that, you just do what you gotta do.

Break (flatpicking hook)

Baby got to talkin' the other night
Trying to tear me down
He don’t like where I live
He don’t like this whole dang town.
He don’t like much of nothin' at all, he made that kinda clear
I said, "why don't you, clear on out of here."

Chorus
You can’t live like that
(can’t live like that)
Doing what other people say
You can’t live like that
(can’t live like that)
It don’t matter anyway
You can’t live your life pleasing someone else
who might be crazier than you
You can’t live like that, just do what you gotta do

Break (instrumental flatpicking)

Repeat Chorus and tag.

REVIEW
This debut CD is an all aboard YeeHaw and Whhoo Whhoo train ride. Flying Accusations Now Arriving... Indie (2007) I’ve had the pleasure of hearing tastes of this group on CHLY, followed by giving this CD a good listen in the comfort of my home and that’s exactly what this CD is – a good listen! This music is kitchen table comfortable with a bitter twist of reality and pinch of tongue in cheek, my kind of recipe. The diversity of this CD provides a buffet of flavours for the listener. You are taken over a shaky, old-time covered bridge with the introductory track 'Call Me Sweetheart' then switchbacked to a shout along chorus in 'Can’t Live Like That' to full steam ahead with 'Lies, Halftruth and Misinformation' then back to the station for a deep south 1930's (and it sounds like it) chain gang ballad 'End of the Line" which I’m sure for this band it is not . The Flying Accusations train has not only Now Arrived, it's leaving the station with a full head of steam from my hometown no less. This debut CD is an all aboard YeeHaw and Whhoo Whhoo train ride. Count me in as a new passenger with a window seat, singing along in the Club Car.
