about

Joyful Noise is the third album from roots-rockers King Of The Tramps. It picks up where “Wicked Mountain” leaves off, with a genuine whiskey gospel feel. There is a balanced mix of bluesy rockers, heartfelt ballads and foot stomping sing-a-longs. The 9 songs cover a lot of territory, with stories about trains, washed up singers, tragedies, wanderlust and assorted bar room gospels.
The songs were recorded at Old School Studies in Auburn, IA over a period of 6 months in a true collaborative, organic effort. This record finds the band clicking together better than ever with a more intuitive sense of jam sensibility, structure and song development.

Track Name: Weather
Weather
From the Album “Joyful Noise”

Everybody’s talkin bout the weather
Aint’ no one doin a god damn thing
We got fires to the left of us, floods to the right
Stick around it will change
Stick around it will change

Everybody’s talkin’ bout forever
Like it’s somewhere that they can go
Forever’s just another word for stayin the same
Stick around it will change
Stick around it will change

We got apocalypse and Armageddon
Hypocrites keep forgetting
Prophecies self-fulfilling
I drink and therefore I am

Just remember when you point at somebody else
There’s three fingers pointing back at yourself
There’s irony everywhere we look these days
Stick around it will change
Stick around it will change

We got apocalypse and Armageddon
Hypocrites keep forgetting
Prophecies self-fulfilling
I drink and therefore I am

Everybody’s talking bout strange things in the sky
They’re all paranoid afraid they gonna die
The sky is the same blue that it’s always been
Stick around it will change
Stick around it will change
Stick around it will change
Track Name: War (Free Download)
Who profits during wartime
Who suffers during peace
Just follow the money
If you want to catch a thief

Wars are fought for the rich man
Bought with poor man's blood
There ain't no such thing as justice
justice took a bullet from the judge

If you elect the killer
you put the gun in his hand
If you elect to do nothing
you still put a gun in his hand

Bankers in bed with politicians
their sex reeks of corporate greed
they vote for war by proxy
They all shit where they eat

Some die screaming for their lover
some die screaming for their whore
Some die screaming for mercy
All war's are politician's war

Rally, rally round the flag boys
Rally, rally round the flag
The only cost of war is peace boys
Lets bring her home in a body bag
Track Name: Six Bullets
If I could take back one thing, It'd be everything I said
Thought I'd teach you a lesson, but you can't teach the dead
Don't let me down easy, don't let me down hard.
Anger is a weapon, Fear can make you run,
But runnin' leads to trouble, that trouble ends with guns
Don't let me down easy, don't let me down hard.
Don't let me down easier, than they took you away from me
Don't let me down harder, than I found the words I could not say
Just let me down peacefully, into the valley of my discontent
and leave me there with the shadows, there can be no shadows without light.
Take the passion out of anger, someone always dies
you take the truth from a stranger, that stranger lies
Don't let me down easy, don't let me down hard.
Some kids need a little less lovin', some kids need a little more
some kids steal somethin' they don't need from some damn convenience store
Don't let me down easy, don't let me down hard.
Don't let me down easier, than they took you away from me
Don't let me down harder, than I found the words I could not say
Just let me down peacefully, into the valley of my discontent
and leave me there with the shadows, there can be no shadows without light.
Some kids grow up the hard way, some kids hardly grow up
Hell, when I was your age, no was never enough.
Don't let me down easy, don't let me down hard.
These young cops trained as killers, like soldiers in a war
well they never say I'm sorry, that's what the bullets are for.
Don't let me down easy, don't let me down hard.
Don't let me down easy, don't let me down hard.
