about

Mississippi Bones Ada, Ohio

Mississippi Bones formed in the flat lands of Hardin County, Ohio in 2010 as a 2 man studio project, thanks to some free studio time, with no other motives than to lay down some rock and no intentions of a future. In the last 4 years the rock has not stopped. They have moved from a 2 to a 6 man (5 men 1 lady) band, but the goal remains the same...laying down fat slabs o'rock. ... more

Track Name: Sasquatch Paparazzi
Roll that tape, keep truckin on we headin down bluff creek way like Gimlin and Patterson
Gonna make me a million up through Washington We're rollin through Bigfoot country and I’m gonna find me one

Doesn’t matter how you find your pot of gold Sasquatch paparazzi

Got bones I found out in Yellowstone plaster casts of tracks but what’s really bringin in the green backs
A little video that I made down in southeastern Ohio And it's all for sale, an of the highest quality
You come to me when you want the best
Your satisfactions guaranteed

Doesn’t matter how you find your pot of gold Sasquatch paparazzi

I’m on the trail and he's a big one, got my buck knife ready and I bet I get a yeti come on


Roll that tape. Keep truckin on. We headin down bluff creek way like Gimlin and Patterson

I’m on the trail and he's a big one, well I bet I get a yeti I’m the Sasquatch paparazzi
I’m on the trail and he's a big one, got my buck knife ready and I bet I get a yeti come on
Track Name: Makin Deals With The Robot Devil
He came walkin’ out the dark and on through the door
I was pluckin’ on a tune in some minor chords
He had a white hat, white shoes and white coat
He said, “Boy I see you know the notes, but theres, somethin’ you need to learn, now granted your chops burn, but they be lackin’ soul and we all know.”
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing, boy
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing
You can’t fake it, oh no, but I can help you make it, if you pay my fee, you see
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing, boy
Now is you is or is you ain’t just fakin’?
Now I know for sure I shoulda hit the door, but he said he’d give me hands of an automaton
Get my groove locked on and I could rock on and on and on
I asked him what are your terms, he said the deal is standard, I’ll give your songs some soul in exchange for yours
I said I agree, now when you come see me, you’ll hear the whole crowd sing
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing, boy
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing
I ain’t fakin, oh no, I’m just makin these strings sing because
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing, boy
Now listen to me swing
That rock don’t ever stop. Like the great bambino, I just keep on swingin”
And when that old boy came back to collect his bill and take me down to hell I screamed
Give me a chance to save my soul, he picked up his guitar and said if you can top this, then it’s yours
I said that’s pretty good there, Mr. Robot Devil and you sure is one talented fellow
But, you’re forgetting, in the land of groove I’m king, so sit your ass down, I’ll learn you how to swing
And that’s the one that sent him back to hell, sulkin’, with his jaw draggin’ the floor and his eyes buggin’ out like he ain’t never seen a man rock before
Needless to say I don’t hear much from the Robot Devil no more, but one thing I can tell ya he knows for sure
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing boy
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing
Not a damn thing!
Track Name: Vampire Blues
I remember when the plague came and it spread like wildfire through the cities and the towns
And you know that it left me alone

Since then every night the undead been knockin at my door
And on my walls and on my windows they just keep tap tap tappin
I said every damn night the undead been knockin on my door
And it’s been quite an adjustment to make

This loneliness is killin me and I can’t take much more
Those damn bloodsuckers with their undead ruckus bout enough to drive a man insane
And when the morning comes I’ll put a stake through each one of their cold dead hearts

Every day’s the same I keep drudgin on and on and on
Another day another body for the fire that funeral pyre keeps growin higher and higher
They say a man can get used to just about anything if he has to
But knowin that you’re completely alone's a feelin worse than any man ever knew

This loneliness is killin me and I can’t take much more
Those damn bloodsuckers with their undead ruckus bout enough to drive a man insane
And when the morning comes around I’ll go house to house through the town and
Put a stake through each one of their cold dead vampire hearts

I said every damn night the undead been knockin at my door
Knock knock knockin
Track Name: The Silverforked Tongue of Mr. Toad
If you’re a family in need he's the one to see, he's the man to know, he's the one you'll owe
They call him Mr. Toad and he'll make your house a home with dishwasher, refrigerator
All the luxuries big screen TV, surround sound stereo with remote control for your DVD’s

Standin three foot nothin schisty as the day is long, beware the silver tongue of Mr. Toad

Tweekin on stackers, talkin so fast you missed his trickery, when he said two weeks free
Then he slid you the paper got you to sign the damage waiver
Protect yourself from fire and theft at 14% you should have read the fine print
Now he's gettin three and a half turns on the cash price, that’s right
There’s no need for crime, cause he'll steal legally

Standin three foot nothin, schisty as the day is long

(Schemeing, schemeing, schemeing, schemeing,)
He’ll reach out his right hand in friendship
(Schemeing, schemeing, schemeing, schemeing,)
While the left's buried deep in your pocket

And it's a sad, sad story when you find yourself on his list weekly and he comes knockin at your door
Cause he knows that

You owe on all that you own, thanks to Mr. Toad
You owe on all that you own, thanks to Mr. Toad and his forked tongue
You owe on all that you own, thanks to Mr. Toad now he's gotta by the balls son
You owe on all that you own, thanks to Mr. Toad you owe you owe you owe you owe you owe

And it's a sad, sad story when you find yourself on his list weekly and he comes knockin at your door
Because he knows that you owe

Midnight round of golf on the seventh hole, Fred DUI think you might be inebriated
I’da used the five iron not the Durango

That’s right, that’s right

You owe on all that you own, thanks to Mr. Toad
You owe on all that you own, and his forked tongue
You owe on all that you own, thanks to Mr. Toad
You owe on all that you own
Track Name: The Leopard, The Lion & The She-Wolf
At the point of travel half of my lifes way I trade the path that does not stray for the path of least resistance
And it’s led me to a dark wood where I found the beats of three tearin my soul from me

The leopard the lion the she wolf fierce and lean restrain this lust subdue my pride temper the fury of my greed
The leopard the lion the she wolf fierce and lean restrain this lust subdue my pride temper the fury of my greed

And I beseech thee oh author of aeneid lead us to that higher ground that so very few have found
And my soul will find peace at last but it breaks my heart to know that I’ll leave you in the darkness
Because you gave your life to

The leopard the lion the she wolf fierce and lean restrain this lust subdue my pride temper the fury of my greed
The leopard the lion the she wolf fierce and lean restrain this lust subdue my pride temper the fury of my greed

So turn your back on them now for the only way out is down
And we will journey south through the howls and the shouts of desperation

For she allows no man to pass, all are fodder for the beast and each time she feeds she hungers more and more and more
So leave this place to the beasts

The leopard the lion the she wolf fierce and lean restrain this lust subdue my pride temper the fury of my greed
The leopard the lion the she wolf fierce and lean restrain this lust subdue my pride temper the fury of my greed
Track Name: Band-1
I awoke to the quote that legends never die they just get old
They might have well of just said something bad about my momma
But that shit don't bother me when I got a V8 with leather seats
And I’ll bury that needle on the way to collect my $80,000

We came for Texarkana haulin ass through Alabama we do it for the good old American life
For the money, for the glory, but mostly for the money, I’m the one the only and my legend will never die

Bootleggers, money makers, the movers and shakers, don't you know haulin Coors across state lines is bootleggin
Justice is comin in a 77 Lemans, so put that hammer down and give her hell

Here I come with a cowboy hat and a black Trans Am and I’m runnin point for the snowman
We gonna do what they say can’t be done, East bound and down
Watchin miles roll by as we blow through county lines

We came for Texarkana haulin ass through Alabama, we do it for the good old American life
For the money, for the glory, but mostly for the money, I’m the one the only and my legend will never die

Bootleggers, money makers, the movers and shakers, don't you know haulin Coors across state lines is bootleggin
Justice is comin in a 77 Lemans so put that hammer down and give her hell

Long way to go, short time to get there, I got the moves nothin to lose and we rollin on
Long way to go, short time to get there, I said we're east bound just watch old bandit run
Long way to go, short time to get there, I got the moves nothin to lose and we rollin on
Long way to go, short time to get there, I said we're east bound just watch old bandit run
Track Name: The Venkman
I’ve crossed streams in parallel dimensions vie swam through a river of bad vibes
All just to save your ass and I’m the reason that you’re alive
So don’t sail me down the crazy river every time a specter vapor apparition or demi god comes knockin at your door

I go by doctor these days if you please and I’m a man of much prestige
And I demand to be treated with the respect and dignity a man of my stature deserves

I’ve crossed streams in parallel dimensions vie swam through a river of bad vibes
All just to save your ass and I’m the reason that you’re alive
So don’t sail me down the crazy river every time a specter vapor apparition or demi god comes knockin at your door

And if you talk to zule tell him gozer's gonna be a no show we gonna get letters from the Hittites on that one
Yeah I’m talkin bout the end of the world and that’s a fact
Famine, plague, unpredictable weather, dogs and cats livin together

And then the dead are gonna rise up who you gonna turn to then
And then the dead are gonna rise up who you gonna turn to then

I’ll be takin a stroll with lady liberty and we be dancin to Jackie Wilson
Gettin down to that psychokinetic groove

Yeah and vigo gonna find out I mean business this time
Send his ass back to the Carpathian mountains cryin to his momma

I’ve crossed streams in parallel dimensions I’ve swam through a river of bad vibes
All just to save your ass and I’m the reason that you’re alive
So don’t sail me down the crazy river every time a specter vapor apparition or demi god comes knockin at your door
Track Name: Full Moon Risin
The rain is pourin down fog is settin in through the darkness I can feel that somthin's circlin
Wolfs bane in bloom under silver moon like a cry in the night I hear somthin howlin
I should've listened at the slaughtered lamb when I asked a question bout their pentagram they said
Stick to the roads steer clear of the moors and beware of the moon boy if you fear for your soul

Cause there's a full moon rising
Cause there's a full moon rising

Now I’m down on all fours as I hit the floor temperature's rising blood boiling to the core

Woke up in a hospital bed with a lump on my head and scratches up and down my chest
Hallucinations of the livin dead they come to me and said to put a bullet in my head
This transformation's such a terrible thing my body aches and screams as the beast is unleashed I said
This transformation's such a terrible thing my body aches and screams as the beast is unleashed

As the full moon rises

Now I’m on the prowl and boy you better watch out when you hear me howl

Reports are in cops are on the scene it's a hairy situation if you know what I mean
People runnin scared chaos is everywhere quite a commotion cause by the beast in Piccadilly square

I can feel the change as the full moon's rising
I can feel the change as the full moon's rising
Track Name: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Nexus reflects us and we’ve lost our direction
The sixth installment may have been a bad suggestion
It leaves us with the question, do androids dream of electric sheep?
I guess the fallout wasn’t as bad as they thought, oh no
If you don’t count the mutations turning us into idiots
But still we get by, doing what we must
So I’m rollin’ with Deckard, hunting for skin jobs
I’ve been around and I’ve seen a lot of things
But, I’ll tell you somethin’, you ain’t seen nothin’, till you’ve seen an android weep
Climbin’ that hill, climbin’ that hill
Mercer’s still, climbin’ that hill
