Biography

What Rob Wallace & The Mess do...cannot easily be put into words... Yeah, we play bluesy country-fried honky-tonkin' tripped-out stoner southernrock, but its so much more than that...we play love songs...about your mother!

"Born Heller Heart"

Written By: Robert G. Wallace

“Born Heller Heart” 3/5/06 Robert G. Wallace
I looked behind me and what did I see?
A band of demons comin' after me
They chased me down...I touched cinders to my knees
And when I came up...Good Lord, I was free!
So I laid down my guitar
And I laid down my bottle
And I went down to the river and I sung from the bottom...
Of my Born Heller Heart
Born Heller
My Born Heller Heart
I didn't start at the top but I'm gettin' higher
Working my way from the ground on fire
And when I was down touched charcoal to my knees
And when I came up...Good Lord I was free
So I laid down my guitar
And I laid down my bottle
And I went down to the river...and I sung from the bottom...
Of My Born Heller Heart
Born Heller
My Born Heller Heart
I paid my dues in the dark blind as a vampire bat
Straight outta Hell in flames on the wrong side of the railroad tracks
And when I was down...touched ashes to my knees
And when I came up...Good Lord, I was free
Lessons are earned in life but experience is free
Hell hounds will have you cryin' from a dead dogwood tree
And when I woke up...touched the floor to my knees
And when I stood up...Good Lord, I was free!!!
So I picked up my guitar
And I picked up my Bible
Walked away from the river...just a'singin' from the bottom...
Of My Born Heller Heart
Born Heller Heart
My Born Heller Heart

"'Cross That Mason-Dixon Line"

Written By: Robert G. Wallace

“‘Cross That Mason-Dixon Line” 3/24/06 Robert G. Wallace

Not a day goes by
Someone don't speak your name
You don't know what I wouldn't give
To take back all my mistakes
Here I am, another lonely night,
Trying to get you off my mind...but I...
Bet you can't remember that last time you walked
'Cross that Mason-Dixon line
So here's one more song to help you remember
One more song to help you along
One more song to help me forget...
I won't be holdin' you in my arms when the mornin' comes
When the mornin' comes,
I'll be 'cross that Mason-Dixon line
Waitin' for you to come back home
My record collections been collecting dust
Time to put on one more song before the needle rusts
Turn it up, and let the track take me
Out of my one track mind of us
Yeah, I could tell you exactly what you said
The day you walked out of my life...but I...
Bet you can't remember that last time you walked
'Cross that Mason-Dixon line
So here's one more song to help you remember
One more song to help you along
One more song to help me forget...
I won't be holdin' you in my arms when the mornin' comes
When the mornin' comes,
I'll be 'cross that Mason-Dixon line
Waitin' for you to come back home
I'll be 'cross that Mason-Dixon line
Waitin' for you to come back home

"Harvestin' Time"

Written By: Robert G. Wallace

“Harvestin’ Time” 7/20/05 Robert G. Wallace

I never met a girl so perfect
She makes my heart skip beats somehow
And I never imagined anyone else in a wedding gown
I've never seen a better smile
I've never seen a cuter frown
And in all my years I never thought I'd be sayin' this to you right now
Mr. Farmer, I'm here for your daughter
She's gettin' riper by the day
Any more sunshine and she'd be too sweet
Even for my taste
And if it keeps a rainin'
She'll be lyin' in mud come daylight
So Mr. Farmer, if its alright by you...I think its...
Harvestin' time tonight
Harvestin' time tonight
She's the prime of the garden
So good, I fear
That if I don't pick her I'll be too far and some animal too near
Tryin' to take her away
To leave my heart empty and my soul in tears
So you can understand why I gotta get her out...outta here
Mr. Farmer, I'm here for your daughter
She's gettin' riper by the day
Any more sunshine and she'd be too sweet
Even for my taste
And if it keeps a rainin'
She'll be lyin' in mud come daylight
So Mr. Farmer, if its alright by you...I think its...
Harvestin' time tonight
Harvestin' time tonight
Mr. Farmer, I'm here for your daughter
I'm just tryin' to do whats right
Mr. Farmer, I'm here for your daughter
And I ain't leavin' 'til she's mine
No I ain't leavin' 'til she's mine
I ain't leavin' 'til she's mine
No I ain't leavin' 'til she's mine
Mr. Farmer, I'm here for your daughter
She's gettin' riper by the day
Any more sunshine and she'd be too sweet
Even for my taste
But if that sun keeps on shinin'
I think I'll keep her anyway for awhile
Mr. Farmer if its alright by you...I think its...
Harvestin' time tonight
Harvestin' time tonight
