Three Day Threshold

Three Day Threshold

 Somerville, Massachusetts, USA
BandWorldAmericana

"Three Day Threshold could be the soundtrack to a shotgun wedding, tractor pull, or dog fight. It's bluegrass on overdrive, it's an after hours rockabilly prom, but most of all it's a show not to be missed."

Biography

Winners of Best Local Band from Boston Magazine, Three Day Threshold is at the forefront of the Americana, Celtic and country music scenes in New England. Born and bred in NH, their music has taken the band all over the globe; from festivals in the Netherlands to a Johnny Cash style gig at a Belgian prison, even a private show for Jim Beam Whiskeys in Clermont, KY, where the band was rewarded with a personal tour of the distillery by none other than the great grandson (and current Master Distiller) of Jim Beam.  On their most recent adventure, the band played for U.S. troops stationed overseas in the Middle East and Africa. Glad to be back home, the band is currently working on their 8th album which they are hoping to release this spring/summer.

Lyrics

Uni

Written By: Kier Byrnes/George Hayden

Oh Uni, I hear that train a comin’
Oh Uni, Well, I think we better leave
Oh Uni, you’re a damn fine woman,
No matter how you slice it, you’re all the woman I need

I fell in love with a girl named Uni
Who got cut in half by a train.
She got one leg, one hand, one eye,
She’s even got half a brain.
And how I love, my little Uni
With a heart that can’t hold back,
And the part I loved most of all
Is lying on the railroad tracks

Oh Uni, I hear that train a comin’
Oh Uni, Well I think we better leave
Oh Uni, Why you’re a damn fine woman,
No matter how you slice it babe, you’re all the woman I need

I want Uni to be my bride
Gonna get her a diamond ring,
Gonna take her home to meet my parents
But I’m just not sure which half to bring.

I Must Admit

Written By: Kier Byrnes

I MUST ADMIT

I must admit you look good in black
A strapless dress with an open back
“A bit too proper or is it too plain?”
Honey, it’s enough to take my breath away

I must admit you look good in green
No finer lady I’ve ever seen
“Is the hem too high, the hem too low?”
Well, Come on darlin’, It’s time to go!

See I don’t care what you’re gonna wear
In all honestly, babe, they all look good to me
I’m gonna take you out tonight
And no matter what you wear, it'll be just right

I must admit you look good in blue
Designer jeans and designer shoes,
I’ll take you strolling down lover’s lane
But it’s too late, you disappeared again

And I must admit you look good in red
Got crazy thoughts stuck in my head
Honey babe, put on some clothes (aw no no)
Come on darlin’, It’s time to go!

See I don’t care what you’re gonna wear
In all honestly, babe, they all look good to me
I’m gonna take you out tonight
And no matter what you wear, it'll be just right!
I’m gonna take you out tonight
And no matter what you wear, it'll be just right!

I must admit you look good in white
I’m lookin’ forward to our wedding night
And on your finger a shiny stone
That’s only thing I’d ask you keep on

See I don’t care what you’re gonna wear,
In all honestly, babe, they all look good to me
I’m gonna take you out tonight
And no matter what you wear, it'll be just right!
I’m gonna take you out tonight
And no matter what you wear, it'll be just right...

Kelly I’m Coming Over

Written By: Kier Byrnes - Three Day Threshold

Kelly, I’m Coming Over (total lyrics and then some)

Hi, My name is Jimmy McGuirk, I was born and raised in the bay
A working gent, who pays the rent, Loading docks in the Cay
O’Malley and Minihan, Thomas O’Shanahan, Taking a ride into town
Down for a pint, and well I just might, Be partial to sticking around
Kelly I’m Coming Over… Kelly I’m Coming Over

My favorite dive’s a hole in the wall, Just west of Union Square
Wasn’t the taps or Keno for cash, That always landed me there
Behind the bar, you’d often find, A lass which none could deny
Take one down and pass it around, Hoping to catch her eye
Oh Kelly, Oh Kelly, Kelly Oh Kelly, Oh Kelly, Oh Kelly
Kelly I’m Coming Over… Kelly I’m Coming Over

O’ glass of guinn, we all fit in. We dance with no one around
We answers yay and don’t cha dare or I’ll be sittin’ ya down
The riders and rovers, highway patrollers, Always holding me back
Enough of the gambling, I’ll be rambling, Heading in straight to attack
Oh Kelly, Oh Kelly, Kelly Oh Kelly, Oh Kelly, Oh Kelly
Kelly I’m Coming Over… Kelly I’m Coming Over
Kelly I’m Coming Over… Kelly I’m Coming Over

Chicken Shack (Baby's Got my #)

Written By: Three Day Threshold

Hammer and Spike, Nail and Wood
Thought I did everything I could
Looking back to the Chicken Shack
Thinking that she was gone for good
Morning Sun or Midnight sky
We can talk every day and night
If she comes back to the Chicken Shack
I’m gonna make everything all right.

CHORUS:
Baby’s Got my #, Baby’s Got my #, Baby’s Got my #
There’s nothing I can do, The things you said were true
And every time you’re in the henhouse, I’ll be passing through
Baby’s Got my #
Baby’s Got my #

The Whale all day, Triple 8 at night
Holds it down to the morning light
The ferry leaves a little too soon
I’m on the phone all afternoon
Before I speak, she reads my mind
And what I need, I left behind
Heavy words that don’t ring true,
Don’t call me, baby, I’ll call you.

It's Alright

Written By: Kier Byrnes - Three Day Threshold

Hit the first bank of Shreveport then one in Abileen
The last one in Houston, she got kinda mean
Headed down to Porterstown, Laid low for a while
But why live like an outlaw, if you can’t live in style
Its allright, its allright, its allright (woooo!)

A pawnshop by the river, looked as easy as they come
I rolled down my ski mask, tightly gripped my gun
I take a heavy breath as I plough through the door
Keep your hands where I can see’ em, everybody hit the floor
Its allright, its allright, its allright (woooo!)

This towns a’ get smaller, by the minute, by the hour
And the siren’s getting louder and my blood is getting sour
Its time we get it started, I think I’d let you know
Pray for the departed and God have mercy on their souls

Victory

Written By: Kier Byrnes

Through the hole in a line with a twist
Ain't never felt alone like this.
Hands up, reachin at me,
They want me down on my knees

Chorus:
Hail Mary, Here We Go, We Go,
Hail Mary, Here We Go,
Through the shotgun I unload
Hail Mary, Here We Go

A part of me, A part of you,
Apart from this, there ain't nothin' to lose
Feeling like its the last down
And I'm gonna kick the hell right out of this town

Chorus:
Hail Mary, Here We Go, We Go,
Hail Mary, Here We Go,
Through the shotgun I unload
Hail Mary, Here We Go

Seconds left, momemt of truth
Will I ever be alone with you?
Hands up, reachin' the air,
Sometimes I just don't care.

Chorus:
Hail Mary, Here We Go, We Go,
Hail Mary, Here We Go,
Through the shotgun I unload
Hail Mary, Here We Go

Thrown Out

Written By: Kier Byrnes

One, Two Three Four, Five, Six,

Been thrown out of moving cars,
Fancy Joints and Honky-tonk Bars...
But I never thought I'd be thrown out by you
Kinda lonesome, but I don't mind
My self respect I left behind
Before you go off with him,
won't you kiss me goodbye?

Hopped in the pick up truck,
She used to bring me lots of luck
Driving to your place on Route 115
I’d be late and you’d be mad about the night you could have had
Then I’d put some Hank Williams on and I’d ask you to dance

CHORUS:
Walked out that door,
Been down that road before,
And I don't know how to come home to you
It breaks my heart, but I can’t deny
When something so wrong feels so right

We were lying in your old man’s bed, a shot of bourbon fresh in my head
When I coughed up the words “I love you” for the first time
I got down on one knee and asked you “Oh, please marry me”,
you laughed “What kind of fool mister, do you think I am?”

CHORUS:
Walked out that door,
Been down that road before,
And I don't know how to come home to you
It breaks my heart, but I can’t deny
When something so wrong feels so right

Been thrown out of moving cars,
Fancy Joints and Honky-tonk Bars...
But I never thought I'd be thrown out by you

Softly

Written By: Kier Byrnes

Drove down to town today
I stopped by but you were away
So I talked to some friends for a while

This town, I thought I’d never leave
Close to heaven as I’ll ever be
But Hey babe, I’m right here

Chorus:
Nah, nah, nah, nah....
Sing it softly, she will come.

Roadblock on the bridge ahead
Can't forget the words you said
But turn around, I refuse.

There were times you looked through me
Sad eyes saying "Don't you leave"
But Hey babe, I’m right here

Chorus:
Nah, nah, nah, nah....
Sing it softly, she will come.

Maria, Maria, Come braid my hair
Your sister is lying, I never slept there
I wonder how it all breaks down
You say that your’re leavin, I know you’re in town
Maria, Maria, Don’t break my heart
The damage is done, there's no need to start
I wonder how it all breaks down?

Chorus (repeated):
Nah, nah, nah, nah....
Sing it softly, she will come.
