The Bonesmen

Rock 'n roll Bonesmen style isn't littered with fancy adjectives or frilly ornaments...The Bonesmen is your drunken uncle's rock 'n roll, combining two essential stylistic elements: Country and Blues. Front man Frank Thomas states, "this is good times music; it's supposed to be fun...you crank it up in your backyard on a hot summer day with the grill going and a fresh keg tapped…"

Having emerged on the music scene as New Haven's preeminent live band, The Bonesmen, with their memorable songs, energized live performances, and ever widening fan base are "not trying to reinvent the wheel; they just want to do their part in keeping it rolling" says Vinny Penn, DJ, WKCI 101.3 FM., The Bonesmen have carved out a unique sound that both first time and longtime listeners know and love. "Everyone likes a good song that they can carry with them in their head," adds Turko."

Comprised of lead singer and guitar player Frank Thomas, bass player Kenny Dempsey, lead guitar player Mark Turko and Drew Carrano on drums, the four Connecticut musicians have the right blend of cutting-edge creativity, style and hook-intensive lyrics to ignite today's audiences as well as multi-format radio.

The debut CD from The Bonesmen, entitled Skin And Bones, is now available from Angel Creek Records, distributed through Melodic Mayhem Records and CDBaby.com on-line and Super-D Distribution at retail. The band is being managed by Unlimited Productions of Stratford, Connecticut.

Lyrics

Misty-Eyed and Blue

Written By: The Bonesmen

If you listen close you can hear the sound
My hearts like glass crashin' to the ground
So set me up with another round
You know it makes time pass or so I have found

I'm sittin' here all alone Misty-Eyed and Blue
Just a drinkin' my wine and thinkin' of you
I don't know what went wrong I ain't got a clue
Misty-Eyed and Blue

They say it's better to have loved and lost
Than live without love at any cost
It's just a throw of the dice you give them a toss
Sometimes you win I guess this time I lost

I'm sittin' here all alone Misty-Eyed and Blue
Just a drinkin' my wine and thinkin' of you
I don't know what went wrong I ain't got a clue
Misty-Eyed and Blue

Don't wanna live ain't gonna die
Don't feel nothin' but empty inside
There's only one thing left to say
Thanks for the ride

(solo)

Tomorrow is a whole new day the pain'll fade in time
I don't know if all thats true I'm still Misty-Eyed and Blue

I'm sittin' here all alone Misty-Eyed and Blue
Just a drinkin' my wine and thinkin' of you
I don't know what went wrong I ain't got a clue
Misty-Eyed and Blue

I'm sittin' here all alone Misty-Eyed and Blue
Just a drinkin' my wine and thinkin' of you
I don't know what went wrong I ain't got a clue
Misty-Eyed and Blue

It's Allright

Written By: The Bonesmen


I see your feelin' down won't you let me keep you company
You gotta believe life ain't as bad as it seems
Forget about your cares if your troubled take a ride with me
Put your mind at ease I think I know what you need

Day or Night...It's Allright
Rain or Shine...It's Allright
Low or High...It's Allright
Anytime...It's Allright

Don't say a word darlin' you know I can read your mind
Be careful what you wish for you may not like what you find
I hear what your sayin' you know I can sympathise
There's more to this picture than you realise

Day or Night...It's Allright
Rain or Shine...It's Allright
Low or High...It's Allright
Anytime...It's Allright

(solo)

If you keep your eyes open you know love's gonna come in time
If you can wait until then just keep one thing in mind

Day or Night...It's Allright
Rain or Shine...It's Allright
Low or High...It's Allright
Anytime...It's Allright

Day or Night...It's Allright
Rain or Shine...It's Allright
Low or High...It's Allright
Anytime...It's Allright
