Biography

In September 2004, aspiring singer and grad school dropout Kari Basden moved to Texas and met fellow grad school dropout/singer/songwriter/science teacher Jared Dobbs. The two quickly fell for each other and got hitched. What was once the Jared Dobbs Band soon became a charming Texas folk duo. To avoid such cumbersome names as the Dobbses, The Dobbs Family Band, The Jared & Kari Dobbs Band, the Dobbseseses, they decided to go with Mosey. This simple, quaint name not only reflects their laid-back Americana style, but also is a reminder to slow down and mosey a little in life.

Lyrics

Slice of the American Pie

Written By: Jared Dobbs

She likes to spend what I ain't got/
there's only one thing that we've got alot/ the credit cards are her best friend/ the wolf is at the door saying let me in// We could live good/ we could live great/ we only need just one more thing/ you ask me why I don't know why/ I just took out a loan on a slice of the American Pie// I've got to keep up with the Jones next door/ bought a plasma screen I can't fit through the door/ it's gotta be big so we can see/ cause you know no one can be as big as me// We could live good/ we could live great/ we only need just one more thing/ you ask me why I don't know why/ I just took out a loan on a slice of the American Pie// Yeah we're in up to our ears/ $29.95 for the next fifty years/ maybe by the time we're in our graves/ we can pay off what we never saved// We could live good/ we could live great/ we only need just one more thing/ you ask me why I don't know why/ I just took out a loan on a slice of the American Pie

He Rolls Like Thunder

Written By: Jared Dobbs

He's gentle in the morning/ warm as the sunrise/ there's no better place/ than lying by his side// He's strong as the current/ He stands so tall/ when my demons come to find me/ he fights them off// He rolls like thunder/ he's steady as time/ there'll never be another lover like mine// He leads like a compass/ into the unknown/ as long as I'm with him/ I know I'm home// He rolls like thunder/ he's steady as time/ there'll never be another lover like mine// There's no one loves me/ loves me so good/ just as I am/ and not as I should// He rolls like thunder/ he's steady as time/ there'll never be another lover like mine//

Rise and Shine

Written By: Jared and Kari Dobbs

Hey, baby, rise and shine
The clock says a quarter ‘til 5
We’ve got a big day at the church
I’m going downstairs to warm up the hearse

We’ll start at 9 o’clock
We’ve got that popstar who fell off the chart
I guess he fell off a building too
We might have some work we need to do

Then about 1 o’clock
We’ve got that mom that loved to shop
It’s crazy what you girls will do for a sale
She ran down the escalator and she fell

Then around 6 o’clock
Yeah, you know children are always hard
We’ve got that little girl from Garland town
She fell down a hill and broke her crown

We fall when we’re born
We fall when we die
In between we fall so many times
We fall when we’re born
We fall when we die
In between we fall so many times

So sing that song about Well With My Soul
And we’ll just see how well it goes
Maybe end with Amazing Grace
There won’t be a dry eye in that place
