Brent Palmer Austin, Texas

Born in Port Neches, Texas, Brent was raised in Houston for much of his childhood. There his parents gave him his first guitar at age nine and turned him on to records like Alabama’s Feels So Right and Roy Orbison’s Cryin.

Track Name: Rosaline
Back in ‘51
My mother told me, son
Stay away from wounded souls
But I didn’t heed those words
I loved a Northern Girl
Wicked ways left me undone

Damn you, Rosaline
Sweet like heroin
Devastating too
Damn you, Rosaline
Lost all my good friends
And money chasing you

Whiskey and winter brings
Shivers and stumbling
Murderous time to be around
Always a love affair
Houses are empty here
Danger longing to be found

Lamb and the Lion cried
Get out while you’re alive
There’s a terri up ahead
Track Name: Virginia
That summer storm of ‘26
Wiped out all we had
We lost our fields to raging floods
And herds to Hawkensville

I tried for honest work
It wasn’t in my blood I guess

Virginia, I miss ya
These southern nights have got the best of me
Virginia, I miss ya
Forgive my faults o mamma
I did this all for you and me

We pushed those mares till they were sick
Broke through the valley crash
Sold family jewels to pay some debt
From days of smuggling hash

Those days are gone for good
I’ll make a better life for us
