My music comes from personal life experiences and from the heart.

Biography

Hi guys, I'm Hollin Gammage. I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1969. I spent most of my childhood in the burbs of Atlanta, where I found several female songwriters who made me want to play guitar. Kristen Hall, Wendy Bucklew, Natalie Pharr, Caroline Aiken, Michelle Malone and the Indigo Girls; Amy Ray and Emily Saliers , Chris and Cooper and The Socheads (Dooley), and Dede Vogt to mention a few. Most of my life, I spent most of my time developing my athletic abilities. I moved to Florida for college in the early 90's and remained until November of 2003. While I was there, I ran into some incredibly talented musicians & writers who let me hang out and learn and more importantly reminded me how much passion I have for the music...thanks Wayne and Chimpy Most of my experiences playing out are in Florida bars and road houses, some dives here in Atlanta, Mobile, and in Nashville, (and soon Asheville) and some festivals here in North Georgia, west Florida, south Alabama and South Atlanta.

Influences:

Kristen Hall, Wendy Bucklew, Natalie Pharr, Caroline Aiken, Michelle Malone and the Indigo Girls; Amy Ray and Emily Saliers , Chris and Cooper and The Socheads (Dooley), and Dede Vogt

Lyrics

Your Favorite Song

Written By: Hollin Gammage

Well I know it's gettin late. I can tell by your eye's you should have been in bed quite a while ago.

I can't stand to let you leave, it seem, I just found you.

So push the whiskey from your eyes, take another hit and clear your mind. Play your favororite song one more time. Promise I will listen to each and every rhyme. You'll never know how it set's me free when you play your favorite song for me.

Yesterday it was about a blue eyes girl. But I knew it changes as you travel thru this world. I can't stand to let you go. So much about you that I still don't know.

So push the whiskey from your eyes, take another hit and clear your mind. Play your favororite song one more time. Promise I will listen to each and every rhyme. You'll never know how it set's me free when you play your favorite song for me. Yeah Yeah

The boys are tearing down the stage and we ran all the customers away. Please don't walk away. Got to let me find the words that will make you stay.

So push the whiskey from your eyes, take another hit and clear your mind. Play your favororite song one more time. Promise I will listen to each and every rhyme. You'll never know how it set's me free when you play your favorite song for me.

Can't Move On

Standard Tuning

Dragon flies across the sky With a wispy top and a bottom you can drown in

The Leaves been rattlin' all night and the house is so quiet I can hear it

There's not a thing I can do about you leavin

There's a barful of stools full of wishin' you'd come back

and the cheap talk and whiskey's gone as far as it can go and I'd take it back but I can't and I can't move on

I took what was given and I gave what I had

but that's not really livin' it's what you said as you packed your bags

There's not a thing I can do about you leavin' and there's a barful of stools full of wishin you'd come back well the cheap talk and whiskey's gone as far as it could go and I'd take it back but I can't and I can't move on.

Another night in a room full of peoplei've never felt so alone

It's the same ole' same ole since you been gone.

Nothing I can do about you leavin and there's a barful of stools full of wishin you'd come back

Well the cheap talk and whiskey's gone as far as it could go and I'd take it bake but I can't and I can't move on.

I can't move on

I can't move on

Lay Your Hands On Me

Written By: Hollin Gammage


There's a reason for the season, I've been told
Must be something cuz I'm freezin It's gettin old
I've been livin, like there isn't a tomorrow
I've been givin, leavin me to beg and borrow

Oh Lord, Look down on me.

I've been layin all my lovin on the line
and youre saying that you never really minded
but you're leaving cuz i'm keepin you from being
everything that you think you need to be.

Oh Lord, Look down on me
Oh Lord, Look down on me

Well you've been praying that Ill go down easy
and I'm sayin that you really shouldn't tease me
cuz we both know we cannot let this work out
and I see now, that's what this lifes about

Oh Lord Lay your hands on me
Look down on me

Yes I'm breathin and I cannot hide it so loud
and it's pleasin' that you think you know how

You got me under your voodoo magic spell
but did you know that I'm a witch as well

Oh Lord Do your thang on me
Oh Lord Lay Your Hands On Me
