Good Old Days – by David Elias, all rights reserved worldwide Put a foot down on a hard luck story Put a foot down on a fallen pine The world’s as blue as a morning glory Lost in a field of tumbling vines And you know I saw your cold and careless ways And you know I always love them good old days Put a hand on a shoulder there’s a frost in the air The winter’s here before tomorrow’s gone The gatherin’s over better take what’s fair The reaper will leave you bare as a bone And you know I saw your cold and careless ways And you know I always love them good old days So give your heart to a whisper in the wind And give your mind to the time of man Give your blood to the river bend And give your soul to Abraham And you know I saw your cold and careless ways And you know I always love them good old days

Audience of One Words and Music by David Elias, all rights reserved worldwide A You were transient, you were careful C#m You were safely well unknown F#m The shadow of a building B7 Making calls from a payphone A Lose a little bit of history C#m F#m And everything is reduced back to none B7 The single source well on its course E The perfect audience of one You were patient you were pardoned You were practically left out You could disappear and still be there Well within and then without Lose a little ideology And everything is reduced back to none The single source well on its course The perfect audience of one You had friends in higher places In the limbs and in the boughs With the winter constellations Catching magic in the now Lose a little shelter and you're riding In the aisles of the sun And everything is reduced back to none B7 The single source well on its course E The perfect audience of one B7 The perfect audience of one E The perfect audience of one You had friends in higher places In the limbs and in the boughs With the winter constellations Catching magic in the now Lose a little shelter and you're riding In the aisles of the sun And everything is reduced back to none B7 The single source well on its course E The perfect audience of one B7 The perfect audience of one E The perfect audience of one

I'll Never Know Tomorrow Words & Music by David Elias, all rights reserved worldwide [ See the video of The CasualTees playing this track at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLAlQowKSGE ] I set fire to the page I burned those words right down Saw their ashes in the air Sink right to the ground Now I don't know if I was there If I'm lost or if I'm found Let's begin again I'll never know tomorrow I saw the rings of Saturn spin In a dream I had last night That gold dust ice was thin I held on with all my might Now I can't remember where I been In the early morning light Let's begin again I'll never know tomorrow I see the ocean from the trees And the hilltop from the barn I sail the seven seas And never leave the farm Don't tell me what I need Don't take me by the arm Let's begin again I'll never know tomorrow

Not Another Minute (I See You) - David Elias, all rights reserved worldwide Come a little closer to me While it’s early in the day And the morning light shines through me I hear everything you say CHORUS There’s not another minute left between us There’s not a minute we could lose It’s the middle of the morning I see you I see you Turn around a let me hold you Let me whisper in your ear Was it something I never told you Or something you just couldn’t hear CHORUS There’s not another minute left between us There’s not a minute we could lose It’s the middle of the morning I see you I see you ------ Solo (repeat verse + CHORUS) So come a little closer to me Cause there’s nowhere else to be Can’t you feel the sun shine through you too Like your favorite memory CHORUS There’s not another minute left between us There’s not a minute we could lose It’s the middle of the morning I see you I see you I see you I see you I see you I see you

Hair of the Dog Words and Music by David Elias, all rights reserved worldwide The hair of the dog Is wrapped around your chest The shirt of your religion Meaningless lessons to the rest Disciples of the vine Wrestle water from the wine Alchemy is back in style Ripened by these times Social independents Ride the wagon out of town Wheels roll through the iron age Through these fields of County Down The leaf and magic bean The barley and the corn Spirits of awareness riding shotgun through the storm You can ramble through the door hat you came in Without a word without hope Without a prayer Rituals of reaction Emotion at its best Seeking satisfaction While the landscape changes fast The rules of every road Won't forgive what's crossed the line I'm finding out that driving's not the only way to fly You can ramble through the door that you came in Without a word Without hope Without a prayer

Save The Church - David Elias, all rights reserved worldwide save the church it's sinking fast holy ruins holy past sacred grounds they cannot last save the church it's sinking fast save the ground i pray to thee the holy stone the holy tree as birds pass o'er the fervent seas save the ground i pray to thee save our hearts one by one unlock them from the time we've done release them lord and set them free as me to you and you to me

Poor Polly - by David Elias Settle down the question now poor Polly Was it you who rode away or was it you who drowned Was it Halfway Jim who did you in poor Polly Or did he sweep you off your feet And ride to higher ground Settle down the question now poor Polly Was there silver in that wedding dress And diamonds on the ground Were there three horsemen who knew you well poor Polly Did they tie you in that chair And bid you never make a sound Settle down the question now poor Polly Did you ride out with your lover straight across the border Where's the papers that he left behind poor Polly To vindicate your brother Identify your daughter Settle down the question now poor Polly How many days before we hear your cross chain on the floor Why waste your time with such small time poor Polly You could have had most anyone And struggled never more Settle down the question now poor Polly You hunger for the truth as you drink from every stream Will we ever see your pretty eyes poor Polly Or do you leave us running endlessly Right back into your dream

Lost in the green Follow the magic stones Winter comes tomorrow Solstice all alone Strangers never knew you Friends become the same Lost in the green Follow signatures in the sky Winter comes tomorrow Quietly Families in the fields Hollow in the wind And all those one way conversations Repeat yourself one time or two Freedom of speech has limitations Forget the words and you'll be through Lost in the green Follow the river stones Winter comes tomorrow Solstice all alone Strangers never knew you Friends become the same And all those one way conversations Repeat yourself one time or two Freedom of speech has limitations Forget the words and you'll be through

Hummingbird - David Elias, all rights reserved worldwide Hummingbird keep your back to the highway Hummingbird keep your eye on the sun Hummingbird will you come and fly my way Hummingbird a new day has begun I wish I was a tall tree in a meadow Higher than the blue sky by a mile I'd shake my arms at the ground down below And pray the stars let me sleep for awhile Hummingbird keep your back to the highway Hummingbird keep your eye on the sun Hummingbird will you come and fly my way Hummingbird a new day has begun

Here's what Gary Rancourt wrote online at CDBaby about this album:

"A remedy to today's angnst ridden music

David's music always brings a sense of delight. It's music about nothing and everything at the same time. I know that sentence sounds completely contradictory but it's what I feel. He is able to take the simplest passing fragment of a scene - which maybe arrived fully formed in his head and maybe not - and weave a wonderfully poetic story of great complexity.

This work, performed live in an intimate venue that he knows so well, gives both a sense of intimacy and authenticity that imbues these tunes with charm and warmth. An added bonus is the sound is great - just the right amount of room sound to create and support the vibe in that venue. All of the musicians are first rate and I especially like the guitarist. Backup vocals also excel. This is feel good music and his good time becomes our good time. I felt welcome to the musical party.

In these days of psychological angst, David's music is an antidote. The common semantic thread with all these tunes is frankness, honesty and acceptance without regret - so often hard to come by in today's music."

Here's what Dez Fretz wrote about it:

"Happy San G.

This album is pleasure in music and sound.
Upbeat from the first, David Elias and eight other talented artists perform for us, and an appreciative local crowd, captured live over three nights at the historic San Gregorio General Store near Half Moon Bay in California. We get the feel of the place and its great acoustics, and of these fine performances. There is a flow to it all and it's obvious they're in the groove. For me, this is among the best experiences of live music -- sounds real; makes me smile. David is a pioneer of using the latest technology and talented engineers to produce great-sounding recordings. This is one of 'em. The sense of being there, the placement of instruments and voices, their definition, natural reverb. It's all there. And the interplay of fine musicians at these special moments in their lives is wonderfully presented. Treat yourself!"
