“You’re running wild
Running out of control
You and the devil playing cards for a piece of your soul…”

Recently inducted in the U. S. Blues Hall of Fame as a Master Blues Artist, Wily Bo has been working again with E D Brayshaw and have been back in the studio with some friends laying down the second and final volume in their ‘Stone Cold Beautiful’ series of rock, americana, southern gothic and blues tales which follow the fate of Johnny & Louise, natural born killers on the lam, and other characters from Wily’s storytelling palette

Cinematic tales and scorching guitar solos…

Building upon the global success of their 2015 album ’Stone Cold Beautiful’, upon the success of Wily Bo & E D Brayshaw’s many ‘live’ performances with ‘The Wily Bo Walker Band’ and, of course, Wily’s solo acoustic swamp’n’stomp shows, Mescal Canyon Records are proud to present the new single ‘Running Wild’ taken from the forthcoming album ‘The Roads We Ride (Stone Cold Beautiful Vol II)‘

“a veritable ‘tour de force’ of modern song-writing”

lyrics

HEAVEN KNOWS WHO MIGHT HAVE SENT YOU
HEAVEN KNOWS WHERE YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN
BUT REVENGE MUST SEEM LIKE SUCH A SWEET, SWEET THING
TO A PRETTY GIRL OF SEVENTEEN
TELLING STORIES OF YOU GUNNING FOR THE HEART OF THIS TOWN
TELLING STORIES OF YOUR COMRADES IN HELL
WELL THERE’S ONE DAMNED STORY NEVER ECHOES A SOUND
THROUGH THE STREETS OF EVANSVILLE…

YOU’RE RUNNING WILD
RUNNING OUT OF CONTROL
YOU AND THE DEVIL PLAYING CARDS FOR A PIECE OF YOUR SOUL
YOU’RE RUNNING WILD
RUNNING OUT OF CONTROL

THEY FOUND YOUR DADDY DEAD LATE ONE NIGHT
SAID HE GOT DRUNK – HE SLIPPED AND FELL
BUT THERE WERE SHADOWS RUNNING THROUGH THE PALE MOONLIGHT
RUNNING DOWN PAST CARTERS WELL
THEY BURNED YOUR MOTHERS TRAILER
YOUR KIND AIN’T WELCOME IN THIS TOWN
WHEN THEY WERE SIFTING TRHROUGH THE ASHES, HONEY,
YOUR BODY WAS NEVER FOUND

YOU’RE RUNNING WILD
RUNNING OUT OF CONTROL
YOU AND THE DEVIL PLAYING CARDS FOR A PIECE OF YOUR SOUL
YOU’RE RUNNING WILD
RUNNING OUT OF CONTROL

I SAW YOU LAST NIGHT IN THE PAPER
PRETTY GIRL MAKING FRONT PAGE NEWS
WITH A SMILE AS WIDE AS THAT PAIN YOU HIDE
IT READ THAT YOU HAD NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE
IT READ HOW YOU’D HESITATED
BEFORE YOU BLEW THE GAS STATION AND THE LIQUOR STORE
AND THAT A GUN IS NO EXCUSE FOR HATRED
AND FOR ALWAYS CRYING OUT, CRYING OUT FOR MORE…

YOU’RE RUNNING WILD
RUNNING OUT OF CONTROL
YOU AND THE DEVIL PLAYING CARDS FOR A PIECE OF YOUR SOUL
YOU’RE RUNNING WILD
RUNNING OUT OF CONTROL
