lyrics

We got clout
And brilliant things
A thousand pounds of misery
I’ve got air when they got them strings
We’ll swing around and never meet
I’ll see hope in vivid dreams
You’ll see the stars and never me
All the time reminded ‘bout a world we imaged
And how it’s supposed to be
I ain’t the gifted man

You find them faults
You bear down hard
You almost forgot to see it in awe
Sometimes you have to share them props
Or instead try to live in vain
The same old same, a different way
Cut them ropes or remember the shame
All the time reminded ‘bout a world we imaged
And how it’s supposed to be
I ain’t the gifted man

We got clout superiority
They’ve got the nerve to be hugging trees
We’ll stand so tall when we’re full of our wind
Fill in them clots with accomplishments
Everything’s so different when it’s what it should be
Contagious to wonder is it what it is
All the time reminded bout a world we imaged
And how it’s supposed to be
I ain’t the gifted man

about

Dirt Scab Band Birmingham, Alabama

The Dirt Scab Band has taken the traditional country and old time sound and subjected it to the power and freedom of a garage band. In many ways the music sounds as thick and humid as Alabama air in August. Tales of idle-handed adventures, failed loves, and corrupted souls are complimented with overdriven fingerpicked guitar, growling fiddles, and a neck stomping rhythm section. ... more
