about

Coralee and the Townies Lexington, Kentucky

"Coralee and the Townies are a Lexington, Kentucky based band of a genre they’ve self-defined as Honky Tonk Soul, and it’s a fitting description, as the sextet whoops and weeps with traditional authenticity and contemporary energy, with Coralee’s husky vocals front and center and the Townies providing a righteous, raucous rootenanny soundtrack around her." ~Brian Baker (CityBeat) ... more

Track Name: Wings On The Borrow
The shit just fell
Oh, can’t you tell
That I'm tryin to love you
But this just ain’t the kind of thing that I do

I’ve never been
The kind of girl
To pursue no lovin
But it’s time, I think this time I’ll let someone through

Woman’s wings on the borrow so I can open up and fall into you

Now don’t you think
That I’m the kind
To outdo my lovin
Won’t let start something I don’t think I can’t get through

But there’s a thing
About you I could do
Oh, your lovin
Is something I think this time I could sure get used to

Woman’s wings on the borrow so I can open up and fall into you
Woman’s wings on the borrow ain’t something Ill soon get used to

Oh, it seems all this time I’ve been runnin
Away from myself and all this time closer to you
But wait I can’t tell where it stops since I started to let you in
I borrowed these wings and I’m stumbling underneath the weight

Now don’t you think
That you’re the guy
That’s gonna break through this tough skin
I’ve been tried Lord and I have been through

But if you’re nice
I think I might
Make an allowance for you, might let you in
I’ll make my flittin’ and flutterin’ kind of debut

Woman’s wings on the borrow so I can open up and fall into you
Woman’s wings on the borrow aint something Ill soon get used to
Woman’s wings on the borrow so I can open up and fall into you
Track Name: Funny That Way
I keep to myself
Most of the time
I go it alone
I like to keep it mine
I’m not blind I see it in their eyes don’t think I could be satisfied
I guess I’m just funny that way

I keep to myself
But I keep a man
Only go to him late at night
But I like to keep him mine
I’m not blind, I’d see it in his eyes, don’t think that he’s not satisfied
I guess he’s just funny that way

I know it’s criticized ill-advised stigmatized that’s alright
I won’t apologize or dignify your shame by making it mine I won’t wear a disguise

Think you’ve got it right
Cause you keep a wife
You go with the flow
You like to keep it light
I’m not blind I see it in your eyes thinkin there’s only one way to live a life
I guess you’re just funny that way

I don’t need protection
I don’t need the fold
I realize that you see things in black and white
But cause it’s working for you doesn’t mean it’s right
I guess things are funny that way
Track Name: Don't Touch Me
Well I woke up this morning from the beauty sleep I needed on the wrong side of the bed and in your boots
And I knew it was no good that I’d be into for the day, but I just thought if I was you I couldn’t lose
I pulled myself up by your straps I let myself out through the back I stopped and gave the day your critical review
And I made caterpillar tracks down to the pass to get the facts about the low down way you do the things you do
Walked a mile
In your shoes
Walked myself right out of love with you

I made a point to fail to do the things I knew I needed to like make it right, or make the time or make the call
I climbed the fence and I just sat there thought of neither this nor that there I just sat and watched it make into a wall
I made a mess I made a racket made believe and made to back it I made bricks without the straw or wherewithal
And I made light of making black out of the fire I might have if I’d just light one on my ass and risk the fall
Walked a mile
In your shoes
Walked myself right out of love with you

You’re callin baby come on back sit down let’s take time for a chat let’s talk
Let’s make a plan for that let’s think this through
Yeah you want your old girl back, begging to break the looking-glass
You’re cryin what got into me well babe it’s you

I made molehills out of mountains threw my dollar bills in wishing fountains kept the pennies for me to stack myself up to
I counted sheep to keep awake so I could sleep right through my better days no dreaming only yarns to watch undo
I was you behind your back I did the things that make me mad now I believe I understand the things you do
Yeah I boned up on my bad boy and now you want your old girl back I’ve blown the whistle on your ways and I approve
Walked a mile
In your shoes
Walked myself right out of love with you

I did my best to drop the bar lower my sights and never go too far did things I knew I’d never face up to
And I saw heaven in a hell I thought I knew you knew so well damn that I never thought to jump the fire with you
I was you behind your back I did the things that make me mad now I believe I understand the things you do
Yeah I boned up on my bad and now you want your old girl back you’ve blown the whistle and I’m walkin out on you
Walked a mile
In your shoes
Walked myself right out of love with you
Track Name: Damage Done
Well we knew that it was wrong
But there were nights we drank till dawn
And dawn's a promise new days always come
Well we meant to take just one, we didn’t know what we’d begun
Because the sun did not forget the damage done

And we were gone, with the damage done
And we were gone, with the damage done
It’s easy to keep on, with the damage done

Thought the shadows of the day would show no memory of the night
No strings or things that loving brings
Just on and off like black and white
Well these shadows are a funny thing
The darker nights become
They trail me closer in the day, the more the damage done

Oh we were gone, with the damage done
Oh we were gone, with the damage done
It’s easy to keep on, with the damage done

Tonight the shadows met the light
And darkness took the sun
No shy hellos or long goodbyes
The night it stretches on and on
And lovers wander in the streets
Not one has to go home
Tonight all promises recede
With the damage done

Oh we were gone, with the damage done
Oh we were gone, with the damage done
It’s easy to keep on, with the damage done
Track Name: Rough and Tumble
I’m a rough and tumble woman
Got some rough and tumble ways
In the rough and tumble, baby
Is how I like to spend my days

Now I know you got your business, babe
I won’t look the other way
You want me play like you’re a good boy
But that’s just not why I came

Cause I’m in the mood
To rough and tumble with you
Yeah I’m in the mood
To rough and tumble with you

Yeah you think I’m pretty high class, honey
Think I got no dues to pay
But I’m a real woman, baby, and twice your man, maybe
I worked it so down low to say
Wanna rough and tumble with you

I’m a rough and tumble woman
Got some rough and tumble ways
In the rough and tumble, baby
Is how I like to spend my days

Now I don’t mean to quash your bigness, babe
No, that’s not why I came
But if you’re gonna be makin up rules for me, honey
Don’t expect that I’m gonna obey

Cause I’m in the mood
To rough and tumble with you
Yeah I’m in the mood
To rough and tumble with you

Yeah you think I’m pretty high class, honey
Think I got no dues to pay
But I’m a real woman, baby, and twice your man, maybe
I worked it so down low to say that
Wanna rough and tumble with you

I’m a rough and tumble woman
Got some rough and tumble ways
In the rough and tumble, baby
Is how I’m bound to spend my days
