Bucky Bouncing between passionate, rootsy Americana and straight up alt-country rock and roll, this soulful bluesy band brings the goods. Wonderfully sung lyrics by both male and female singers give this whiskey driven, heart-aching, and ball-busting record the diversity and strength to sit amongst the heavy hitters in the genre. Favorite track: Take Me Down.

MIDNIGHT MAN (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) I like to go out drinkin’ I like to go downtown I like those pretty women Like to turn their heads around Wanna hear the sweet, sweet music And all the night time sounds See the bright lights burnin’ And lay my troubles down Baby, you can have your sunshine Let the devil take the day Lord, I’m a midnight man I ain’t so hard to figure Ain’t no complicated man I’m just tryin’ to kill this heartache Darlin’, any way I can Baby, let me come on over And we’ll pull your blinds down low And we won’t tell nobody Nothin’ they don’t need to know And I’ll leave you with a memory And a smile that’s yours alone Lord, I’m a midnight man When I hear the rooster crowin’ When I hear the church bell chime Baby, that‘s my way of knowin’ That it‘s time to say good night ‘Cause I like to go out drinkin’ And I like to go downtown See the bright lights burnin’ And lay my troubles down Baby, you can have your sunshine Let the devil take the day Lord, I’m a midnight man

FOOL NO MORE (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) You know I love you, baby, I can’t lie But you don’t give a damn about the tears I cry You stole my heart and sent me straight to hell ‘Cause you can’t love nobody but yourself I‘m tired of bein’ your fool You call me up late at night again Sayin’ “Baby, I’m so lonesome, won’t you let me in?” You can howl all night right outside my door But I ain’t gonna be your fool no more Ain’t gonna be your fool no more Ain’t gonna be your fool Boy, you showed me that your heart ain’t true It just hurts too much to be in love with you I sit home every night, broken, sad, and blue Listen, boy, I’m tellin’ you Ain‘t gonna be your fool My love was blind, but I finally see You’re only gonna use me for the things you need Baby boy, you better set me free ‘Cause my heart’s in misery
3.
GOIN’ OUT OF MY MIND (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) Hey, hey, baby, have mercy on me I got a bad, bad fever, girl, and I can’t sleep I’m goin’ out of my mind You’re at home, baby, lyin’ with him I got a heart full of want you and a head full of sin I’m goin’ out of my mind Tell me now, baby, does he treat you right? Does he burn like a flame for you day and night? I’m goin’ out of my mind I’m a jealous man, baby, I can’t lie You know I look upon that man with an evil eye Girl, you know it and I know you do Darlin’, he don’t love you, not the way I do Oh, pretty baby, when you let me in I don’t know where you stop, girl, and I begin I’m goin’ out of my mind All them little boys wanna take your hand But a boy can‘t move you like a full-grown man I’m goin’ out of my mind I love you too much and I’m in too deep I got a bad reputation that I aim to keep I don’t need a doctor for the way I feel Ain’t nothin’ wrong with me, girl, that you can’t heal
4.
AIN’T ENOUGH ANYTHING (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) There ain’t enough whiskey in the world To drown your memory Or distance enough to run away There ain’t enough anything for this girl My heart is empty Though I’ve tried everything, every way There ain’t enough stars in the sky To count the tears in my eyes Or to somehow light my way They say a heart should be strong So I keep holdin’ on Hopin’ you’ll come back my way Because when we were lovers Oh, my heart never knew sorrow Thoughts of your love gave life to me But our yesterdays suddenly have no tomorrow And your memory is killin’ me ‘Cause I can’t find a thing to help with the pain No whiskey or weed, pills or cocaine No, there ain’t enough, ain’t enough anything There don’t seem to be anywhere I can go For any relief or peace in my soul No, there ain’t enough, ain’t enough anything And no other lover gives comfort to me There is no other to set my heart free No, there ain’t enough, ain’t enough anything If there ain’t enough love in your heart for me Then there ain’t enough hope anywhere I can see No, there ain’t enough, ain’t enough anything There ain‘t enough anything

BELOVED (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) My beloved is the moonlight as the curtains softly blow My beloved is a shadow as she moves across the floor My beloved is a fever My beloved, my disease My beloved is a razor with her cuts all over me Got my finger on the trigger and a knife behind my back For my beloved My beloved is an anchor with a cold and heavy chain My beloved is a raven and I soar upon its wing My beloved is the winter, my beloved is a flame My beloved is a whisper that can drown out everything Got a pistol in my pillow and a dagger at my feet For my beloved My beloved is a nightmare, my beloved is a dream I want him gone forever, want his hands all over me My beloved is an angel, my beloved is a fire My beloved, my deceiver My beloved, my desire Got my finger on the trigger and my back against the wall And our hands are locked together and together we will fall Got my pistol in my pillow and a dagger at my feet For my beloved

YOU GOT A HOLD ON ME (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) I can't eat, I can't sleep Try to do without you but I'm incomplete Got it bad for you, baby Ain't no cure for me You got a hold on me You're in my head way too much Think about your lovin' and I crave your touch Got it bad for you, baby You got what I need You got a hold on me And every night, it's all the same I wake up in the darkness and I call your name But you don't hear, you don't call Or catch me when I fall I can't eat, I can't sleep Try to do without you but I'm incomplete Got it bad for you, baby Darlin', can't you see? You got a hold on me You got a hold on me You got a hold on me Baby, won't you set my poor heart free? You got a hold on me You got a hold on me You got a hold on me Baby, won't you come and rescue me? You got a hold on me You got a hold on me You got a hold on me

CAT IN A CAGE (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) Girl, you got me pacin’ like a cat caught in a cage Girl, you got me pacin’ like a cat caught in a cage Come on, come on, come on, pretty baby, come on Baby, can I come out and see you late tonight? Baby, can I come out and see you late tonight? Come on, come on, come on, pretty baby, come on Baby, all I wanna do is lay my hands on you Baby, all I wanna do is lay my hands on you Come on, come on, come on, pretty baby, come on Baby, come on over here and treat your daddy right Baby, come on over here and treat your daddy right Come on, come on, come on, pretty baby, come on
8.
NOT THAT MUCH (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) Love to ride your fast machine Love it when you move with me Baby, you can be my man But one thing you should understand You can love me all night long But in the mornin’ you’d best be gone I love you, baby, just not that much I need some time just for myself When I don’t want nobody else I don’t need no wedding ring I just need you for that thing Understand what I’m tellin’ you What’s yours is mine And what’s mine is, too I love you, baby, just not that much Love it when you’re lovin’ me But, baby, I need room to breathe I don’t mean to bring you down Don’t always need no man around You know I want you in my life Remember, baby, I ain’t your wife I love you, baby, just not that much
9.
LONESOME TRAIN (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) Watching the moonlight Shine through our windowpane And off in the distance I hear that sound again The mournful cry of a far-off, lonesome train I’m sorry, baby How I wish I could explain Why I’d leave your warm bed For the cold, uncaring rain Baby, I’m leavin’ on that lonesome train

TAKE ME DOWN (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) Hello, little angel Hello, little one I’m too blue to sing a sad song And I’m loaded like a gun Baby, are you lonely? Baby, talk to me I’m a snake and I’m a liar And I need some company Take me down Come on, little angel Come on, say you will Be my shot of sorrow I’ll be your poison pill Shoot me full of moonlight Hold me while I fall Come on, little angel Come on, take it all Take me down Somewhere dark where I can’t see Let me drown, baby Hold me down, don’t let me breathe Take me down
11.
THE SOUTHBOUND LANE (Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music, BMI) You and me is my favorite place to me Girl, there’s no better company To ease my mind and chase my sorrow How I dream of you walkin’ there next to me With no particular place to be Underneath a southern sky Baby, let’s drive in the southbound lane Let’s get out of here They’re callin’ for rain Oh, the things we could see If you only believed in me Come on, baby, it’s a beautiful drive It’s everything good about bein’ alive Oh, the things we could be If you only believed in me We’d take the southbound lane It ain’t hard We could buy us a little farm Put a baby girl on your arm Darlin’, let yourself imagine Windows down, wind blowin’ your hair around Listen to how the country sounds On our way to somewhere better If you’re tired of livin’ in your day-to-day Girl, I’m up for drivin’ any time I got the engine hummin’ I’ll keep the motor runnin’ Just in case you wanna take a drive You and me is my favorite place to be Oh, the things we could be If you only believed in me We’d take the southbound lane

about

This Is American Music release

credits

released July 30, 2013

"On their first three albums, Mark Utley and Magnolia Mountain set out to prove just how diverse one band can be, mastering pure bluegrass, straight country, rocked-up Americana and swaggering rockabilly, with touches of twangy gospel prayers and tangy Cajun spices. With Beloved, their fourth outing, Utley and the freshly retooled Magnolia Mountain concentrate on the Americana end of the spectrum with an emphasis on the blues and rock aspects of their sound, resulting in a wonderfully dark and driving album that details the various shades of bruising caused by every relationship. The diversity on Beloved comes from the songs themselves, from aching ballads to ballsy rockers, and in their presentation, as Utley occasionally stands down to allow longtime vocalist Melissa English and new voice Renee Frye to take the mic and the lead spotlight. Beloved is smolderingly intense even in its quietest moments, positively incendiary when it's amplified and very likely to be the album that takes Magnolia Mountain to the next level." - Brian Baker, CityBeat

“Beloved” is available on vinyl LP, compact disc, and digital download from the This Is American Music label.
