Biography

After leaving college football,Beau Charron began playing anything he could get his hands on and writing music. He soon joined Fuzz( with members of Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Pitbulls on Crack) and became the bands primary song writer. After three critically acclaimed and award winning albums, Beau was called to Nashville for record and publishing deals. When Beau witnessed first hand the puppet-on-a-string ways of corporate Nashville, he walked away from it all. Beau returned home and sold some songs for movies like "Sam and Janet Evening" and Jessie". Being named a "GuitarGod" by Spot magazine, Beau joined Ultrafix and won RollingStoneMagazine unsigned artist of the year in 2002. The band was flown to New York for a sold out show at the Bowery Ballroom. They toured the country for a couple of years. Downhearted with labels that came and went, Beau decided to go it alone. He left Ultrafix and moved to Austin to focus once again on his music. After playing accoustically with his father and sister and working with them on developing harmonies for his songs, he continued working with long time partner Brandon Holder(Leon Russell's drummer). Beau and Brandon are ready to release the long anticipated debut album with Leon Russell himself helping with the arrangements. While Beau still records all the parts on his own, he found a high energy live power cast. Together they are Miniver Cheevy.

Lyrics

Low Flying Angels

Written By: Beau Charron

Fair weather lovers always hidin' under cover, spare a dime?
Pose a pretty picture put a boot right on the wheel of time
Guess who's on the guest list gonna get right to the front of the line?
It's a beggars banquet baby bet you buy them all up in their prime

I see low flyin'angels, droppin' bombs behind enemy lines
Radar guided halo's, engines burnin' turnin' water to wine
Don't get out of line
Chorus x 2

Sucha silly sugar coated show that plays just for Bill
Bottom bargain blow-outs gonna buy himself an automobile
Deadly devil dogs are drivin' dirt roads fall asleep at the wheel
After noons with red balloons and old cartoons let's make a deal
Chorus x 2

High above humanity the Hindenburgh's have honey and hay
birds and Bees and knocking knees, Bill did you take your pill today?
Wasted Time and baited lines cat of nines and showroom displays
Buried bones ladybug thrones your mind is gone with nothing to say
Chorus

You need a needle, silver beatles, don't you knead some dough for bread?
Wishing well's and burning hell's time will tell if you wake up dead
Sunday dues and worn out shoes the dont's and do's are all in my head
Sleep a while go out with style another mile man in a shed
Chorus x 2
Bridge/Outro

Back To Oklahoma

Written By: Beau Charron

I got lost in New Orleans when I was huffin' gasoline
Then Jesus came and rescued me I was as holy as my old blue jeans.

So I walked with Jesus thru New Orleans she was wearing a bunch of beads I told her all about my needs and this is what she said to me...

You know, the way you're supposed to go and it's back to Oklahoma with your friends, don't cry you can stay with me tonight, then back to Oklahoma with your friends
Chorus

So we stopped some where on Bourbon street then Jesus sat and washed my feet, people just walked on by, nobody could look her in the eye
So I told her that I loved her so then Jesus turned and left to go don't leave me behind I cried
But she was stlll right by my side, she said...
You know the way your supposed to go , and it's back to Oklahoma with your friends, don't cry you can stay with me tonight, then it's back to Oklahoma with your friends
Chorus

Going My Way

Written By: Beau Charron

I get so tired just carrying weight
But I know love would never tempt my fate
I'm lazy at hand but I'm makin' my stand
Playin' with me you'll always have ball in hand
'Cause there's something everybody knows but no one really wants to show 'cause everybodys got the disease
Maybe I was meant to find loneliness is peace of mind so don't step on my cape if you please
Maybe one time I can find it goin' my way
So baby turn around, I think I found such a beautiful sound
Maybe one time I can find it goin' my way

This whole life is just a window display
The engine that could was just a run away
I need new friends 'cause I'm reachin' the end
This heart won't break you know it won't even bend
'Cause there's somethin' everybody knows but no one really wants to show 'cause everybodys got the disease
Maybe I was meant to find loneliness is peace of mind so don't step on my cape if you please
Maybe one time I can find it goin' my way
So baby turn around I think I found such a beautiful sound
maybe one time I can find it goin' my way
