about

Thousands of miles and nearly a thousand shows later, Jhett and Callie Sioux finally got out of the van and back into the studio to lay down Gleewood's second full-length album. Their acoustic roots have been electrified and cranked up through scorching tubes to produce their most diverse and dynamic release yet. Gleewood graduates from the adolescence of their musical career in acoustic folk music to a firmly established, progressive folk rock band in today's Americana music scene.

The rugged and powerful bass baritone vocals of Jhett Schiavone weld with Callie Sioux's high clear soprano to deliver a timeless sound across the vintage canvas of their instrumentation.

Track Name: Sweet, Sweet Time
As soon as I lean back to take a breath
Somebody gets upset
They ask me, “Son, where are you going?”
“Son, breathe in breathe out
Don't be fussin’ don't pout
I know its tough but this world ain’t slowin’”

Chorus
Let me tell ya I don't mind
Gonna take my sweet, sweet time
And I don't really need to know
exactly where I’m going
If I said, girl, lets take our time
Let me pour you some of this sweet wine
Would you say, “To the brim please.”
Or would you decline?

I’m gonna exit off this freeway
And escape the day to day
All these thoughts racing through my mind
Let me tell you the pace of these back roads
They be suitin’ me just fine
Gives me a chance to watch and listen
Gives me a chance to just cruise
Gives me a chance to pay attention
To all these panoramic views

[Chorus]

Come on take my hand please
leave them pre-assumptions and follow me
Gonna show you a little mountain scene
That in my eyes is a masterpiece
This is where I talk to God
This is where I can be free
See I don't know where I’m going
But for now this is where I’ll be

Let me tell you I don’t mind
Gonna take my sweet, sweet time
And I don't really need to know, no, no
I don’t really need to know exactly where I’m going
Track Name: Shades (Reprise)
My future’s been so bright I’ve had to wear them shades
Just fell off my nose, now I’ve got broken frames
And I’m staring right in the sunlight, and I realize
Till now I never knew no pain
Never knew no pain

Well I’ve been walking till my feet
Wore through the bottom of my shoes
Not lookin’ for an answer only lookin’ for a clue
I look for a direction instead I find a ball and chain
I look for loves affection instead I find her sister pain
Well I’m lookin’ for my crutch yeah I’m lookin’ for my cane
Lookin’ for my easy chair and lookin’ for my shades


Chorus
Lookin’ for my shades
Lookin’ for my shades
Lookin’ for my shades
Lookin’ for my shades
Lookin’ for my…


Stumblin’ fumblin' under the sun
Hear You call my name as I try to run
You said, “Leave your cheap sunglasses.”
My mind relaxes
“Follow me cause I’m the one”

'Said He’s the only son

“Well I gave you feet to walk, I gave you legs to run
I gave you eyes to see, to see what must be done
I gave you bread and wine, I gave you my only son
I brought back your enemies, just to set your feet upon
But you can have your crutch, have your cane
Have your easy chair and you can have your shades”

[Chorus]
Take away your pain
Take away you pain
Take away your pain
I’ll take away your…
Track Name: Whiskey Sue
Leather Seats, stained with blood, whiskey on the run
Bullets through my window, automatic guns
St. Peter don’t you call me, gonna be my last run
Get me back to that woman and I swear that I’ll be done

Picked up my gun to fire back, it was my mistake
Hit my mark but flipped the car and threw us in the lake
Pete’s blood in the back seat, began to wash away
I barely made it out alive, but Pete can't say the same

[Chorus]

Runnin’ down this highway, holes in my boots
Jar in my jacket of those outlawed booze
The night is drippin’ fast, I hear those dogs howl
Pigs out to get me, I hear a shotgun shout

[Chorus]

Knockin’ on the back door, Sue answered fast
Clock struck the hour that would be her last
She tried to appease me, but I could not hear her speak
I broke that last bottle right there at her feet

I ain’t gonna be in your pocket no more
And I ain’t gonna play your games

I gave you everything you wanted
I took away your shame

Shame wasn’t my problem
At least my honor was intact
Now I came here owing you a debt girl
And I’m here to pay it back

Revenge ain’t an angel
You can pray to for help
If you want me out of the picture
Your gonna have to shoot me yourself

I don’t need no gun and I don’t need no knife
One of these days your gonna meet your end by your own devise

She dropped her lantern in rage as I dove out the window frame
And the bottle of booze I broke upon the floor ignited into flames
Track Name: Pray for the Son
Oh son, don’t you worry child
Going for a walk might stop somewhere for awhile
If I don't come home boy, don't you grieve
Pray you’ll never be the same kind of man as me
Pray you’ll never be the same kind of man as me

Oh Lord, oh my God
Spoil the child and spare the rod
Won’t you save him from my pain and woe
Let him lay down his roots and he’ll start to grow
Let him lay down his roots and he’ll start to grow

His momma’s meek but Lord she’s strong
Gonna see it in herself before too long
Her and that boy they might need a man
But he’ll never learn a thing from the rake that I am
He’ll never learn a thing from the rake that I am

Oh son, don’t you worry child
Going for a walk, might stop somewhere for awhile
Track Name: House of the Rising Sun
You know them...
Track Name: Summer Wine
Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things

I rode to town on silver spurs that jingled to
A song that I had only sang to just a few
She saw my silver spurs and said lets pass some time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohh-oh summer wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you my summer wine
Ohhh-oh summer wine

My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak
I tried to get up but I couldn't find my feet
She reassured me with an unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me more summer wine
Ohh-oh summer wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohhh-oh summer wine

When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes
My silver spurs were gone my head felt twice its size
She took my silver spurs a dollar and a dime
And left me cravin' for more summer wine
Ohh-oh summer wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohh-oh summer wine
Track Name: Colorado Brew
Well there’s a couple making out
At the bar
And a lady staring at me
I don’t know why
As if I had two heads
And only one eye
But you know I shouldn’t worry
It’s not my fault

And its like I’m up here all alone

Chorus
And you’re too far away
And I know I couldn’t stay
But I just can’t wait to tell you
So I’m calling you on Colorado Brew

So I play another song
It’ll work this time
But not a person sings along
That’s no surprise
So I play the same song twice
I don’t know why
But you know I shouldn’t worry
It’s not my fault

And its like I’m up here all alone
All these heady times make for missing you

So I draw courage from the tap
At the bar
I empty yet another glass
Like before
But it’s not stout enough to smile
Just to cry
So it’s your number that I dial
Tear in my eye

And its like I’m up here all alone

Chorus
So I empty out my glass
And I thank you for the laughs
Its just what I needed to get through
Worth more to me than any Colorado brew
Track Name: Of Mountains & Friends
It’s the changing of the seasons
Another winter waves goodbye
It’s hard to settle in
When things are changing all the time
Leaves return to the trees again
While the creek is running strong
Like the snow that leaves the mountains
We too must travel on

Chorus
Gravity pulls me on
Through the valleys and the streams of the unknown
Wave goodbye to the mountains and my friends
When the season ends maybe we will meet again

Like the ebb and flow of the current
That wraps its arms around the earth
The migration of the buffalo
The leaving of the birds
This world will keep on spinning 'round
'Til the Lord tells it to quit
It's a waste of time to try and hold the tide
Or tell the Earth to stop its spin

Chorus
Gravity pulls me on
This current only heeds the masters call
Through the mountains, solid rock
It smooths the stone
Cutting valley’s through the rapids and the falls
Gravity pulls me on
Through the valleys and the streams of the unknown
Wave goodbye to the mountains and my friends
When the season ends maybe we will meet again

You can pile up all your money
You can build a house of stone
Pretend that it is insurance
For the things you think you own
This world will keep on spinning 'round
'Til the Lord tells it to quit
Its a waste of time to try and hold the tide
Or tell the earth to stop its spin
[Chorus]
Track Name: A Fall Ballad
I am falling down and I’m floating away
From the only place that I’ve ever found
'Got the feeling that I ain’t far from the ground
Well the season came when I was blossoming
When that wind blew like hell
Before a drop of water ever fell
Never knew the story my life would tell

One day the rain finally came
But not before some family met their fate
And I learned to appreciate
Any water that came our way
Before I knew it the time of our youth had slipped away
And as these seasons change
Across this mountain's landscape
There's time to weather in the sun
Time to take refuge in the shade
But my son do not be afraid to turn the page

I want you to look out that window boy
And tell me what you see
How the golden leaves
Have replaced the green on them trees
So too, reflects the time of you and me
And as time takes its toll upon the young and the old
In the heat of the July sun
You will learn to appreciate the cold
And the blanket thats kept you warm will one day unfold

When that day comes
When you bear the fruit of what you’ve become
Do not be afraid or run
For there ain’t nothin' new under the sun
And mistakes only refine what you will become

I am falling down and I’m floating away
From the only place that I have ever found
'Got the feeling that I ain’t far from the ground
Ain’t it funny how I do not fear the ground
Track Name: Runnin' from the Man (Lonely Mountain Version)
Runnin' over mountains man
I’m jumping over seas
Keep that engine rolling boys
Fill it full of steam
Father Time has made the call
That man sure is mean
With two arms 'round and 'round
He’s chasing after me

Chorus
Run, run, run runnin’ from that man
Run, run, run, runnin’ from that man

Scraping by always tired
This road that never ends
Shoes worn out miles ago
But still we’re travelin’
Trapped the Band in the snow
Can’t leave them there to die
Filled our lungs with Denver air
And took off towards the sky

[Chorus]

Stumbling through the Rockies
Headed for the Coast
Lost my mind in Reno
Left my heart in Idaho
Baptized my soul in the South
Got it good and clean
Found my love and my voice
Down in New Orleans

[First Verse]

[Chorus]

When you lay me in the ground
And my mother starts to cry
Raise a glass and sing a song
With the one, four, and the five
Leave an extra set of strings
And a bottle full of gin
So I can write a song for you
Where the chorus never ends
