about

Horace Greene Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Purposefully striding through a field of 60’s soul and guitar-driven blues rock, Horace Greene has set up camp in Oshkosh, WI where they brew their own unique brand of alternative rock n’ roll. The 3-piece, consisting of Tony Oakley (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Swetlik (Bass), and Mitch Washebek (Drums), is quickly picking up steam in the Fox Valley area and has plans to expand their sound regionally. ... more

Track Name: They Say
Say it ain't easy I say, it just must be, being fast and free
But will the dust settle now, from the horse you rode, when you've got your gold

And you can't stop it now
As she barrels down

Well that horse you're ridin' you ride it for too long
They say that feeling you got is coming on too strong

But this man's got no rust
Too soft, too smooth to trust, well he'll be covered like growing moss
As the sun goes down, the sun goes down you must
Chase it, or your saddle turn to dust

And you can't stop it now
As she barrels down

Well that horse you're ridin' you ride it for too long
They say that feeling you got is coming on too strong
Track Name: Crooked Teeth
Girl is on my mind, but she don't seem to care
And my lungs are dry, breathing in this desert air
She's got crooked teeth but, that ain't why she don't smile
I must have lost my head, chasing after this stubborn child

Well you know she spins those words, like I ain't never heard
Her mind is jaded, like a bartender girl
Ten cents would see her smile but, you know it ain't worth a thing
Ten cents would see her smile but, I would rather hear her sing
Track Name: No Touch
She smiles, as she throws another heart outside her window to the ground
And she laughs, as she steps outside her door and closes up without a sound

But girl you've given me too much
Now I've got nothing when I've got no touch

Darling now you've got to stay
I can't light it up another way
As that sun creeps out your door
You wanna stay so make it easy

When did we become too cool
Not a real feeling stays
What's this color, what's this game? It doesn't matter so much now as long as you tell me your name

But girl I've given you too much
Now you've got nothing when you've got no touch

Darling now you've got to stay
You can't light it up another way
As that sun creeps out your door
Don't let him stay, don't let him stay
Track Name: Chicago
When the moon is out
And it comes to blood
Another crime don't matter
In the neighborhood

Oh chicago, won't you let me make it up to my door
And this kid, he ain't got no soul
You had a sweeter side, but that had to go
And the city got you evil now

Well he can shoot a gun
But his mother don't like where he aim it
And in the end it just don't matter
He'll be down so deep he's gonna need a ladder

Oh Chicago, gonna let me make it up to my door
And this kid, he ain't got no soul
Oh you had a sweeter side, but that had to go
And the city got you evil now
Track Name: Twinberry
People say, that you're obscene
But I must be blind to them, cus I don't see

I see you runnin' down, something worse
I see you runnin' down, someday you're just gonna burst

If they say, that you're not clean
You better hear them if you, wanna see nineteen

I see you runnin' down, something worse
I see you runnin' down, someday you're just gonna burst

I hear you live like death's on crawl
Prepare your bones for one last fall

Sing me to the moon and I'll be, doin' fine
Sing me to the moon and I'll be, doin' fine

You make it seem, like you still got some speed
But you just stumble and you fall on your downbeat

I see you runnin' down, something worse
I see you runnin' down, someday you're just gonna burst

I hear you live like death's on crawl
Prepare your bones for one last fall

Sing me to the moon and I'll be, doin' fine
Sing me to the moon and I'll be, doin' fine
Track Name: Salty Seas
Salty seas is what you are to me, lying through your teeth, but you don't have a choice
Don't talk with your mouth open you might start a fire
Said the girl with the golden voice

When you fell you tripped upon her skirt
Digging things that'd be better under dirt

In the light your mother said you better go outside
Cus there's a fire burning high, and it burns a mile wide

Did you light this flame, cus I don't have noone to blame, but those seas
Your feet are wet, I know you're bending back, but mercy you're alright
Mercy you're alright

When you fell you tripped upon the skirt
Digging things that'd be better under dirt

And in the light your mother said you better stay outside, come on
Cus there's a fire burning hot, and it burns a mile wide, my dear
Track Name: High Tonight
(Because the moon, you said, was high tonight)

We walked, and then we ran you could tell how fast
By the holes in the soles of our shoes
You got sick aboard your own ship, don't let the flood fill your eyes
Cus you're gonna feel alright

You say I'm weak so say no lies
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight

Yes it's high but so are you, on other folks that you say you knew
With all these faces how d'you tell
Which ones rust and which ones ring your bells

If you're gonna sneak then do it right
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight

If you're gonna sneak then do it right
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight
Because the moon, you said, was high tonight
Track Name: Get on Out
We got the land but we don't have the man who knows, how to shape it
This one slashes and burns, do we know, do we know, how to tame him

And do we have enough sunset, before the night
And do we have enough sunset to use as light, to keep your heart alive

Get on up, get on out
Get on up, get on out

Morning sees you, but don't look back, they only wanna see your head
And mountain mansions you passed, won't hide you now, you better run fast

Get on up, get on out
Get on up, get on out

He might run but he'll be back
And he'll bring his black saddles back
And he might let some
See the end of a gun

If they don't want us to run, we will walk
The same as we did when they shut us out, and told us to stop

And will we have enough sunset, before the night
And will we have enough sunset to use as light, to change your mind

Get on up, get on out
Get on up, get on out

Where there was one there now is three
And this is too much company
And they might let some
See the end of a gun

Well they ran but they came back
And they brought their black saddles back
Yeah and they might let some
See the end of a gun
Track Name: 100 Bones
100 bones, how many graves we gotta dig
100 bones in the hand it's, not enough to keep it hid
That might buy you a shovel, but you can't bury evilness

100 years, is that what you wanna do?
Cus in them jailhouse walls, they ain't gon' be nice to you
And now you're sweatin' from your ears, as it drips on your Sunday shoes

Your momma said you better, cross your T's not cross your eyes
And if you're running races, you better check that your shoes are tied
But you don't need to earn your money, when you're busy taking bribes
Track Name: Like a Buffalo
Seasick country drinks you up
And we've been drifting, a little too much
Feeding bad thoughts to the brain
But she's gonna starve anyway

You knew what time it took to say goodbye; you only had enough time to leave

Darling you've chased enough moonlight
Can't you see it in your eyes
The way you run through the streets at night
Makes a man afraid of what he'll find

Well I see no signs of life
You must've lost your appetite
My sweet lord, I've all but failed
And the pride has all but sailed

You knew what time it took to say goodbye; you only had enough time to leave
And we all ain't gotta be so fast

Darling you've chased enough moonlight
Can't you see it in your eyes
The way you run through the streets at night
Makes a man afraid of what he'll find
Track Name: Burgundy Cars
Kids roll down the streets, with their burgundy cars and blacked out windows down
But they don't know, what's going on, what's going on downtown

Down there people talk, but he don't know that keeps his engine hot
While he pumps his gas, all alone in a blacktop parking lot

What do you got to say to them, what do you got to say right now
And your heart, would knock them down

He don't know the union, he don't, he don't know the shop
All he knows is money man, and that's where he got shot

Now the sun says sweat, and that's all he knows how to do
Work the finger 'till the bone shines through

What do you got to say to them, what do you got to say right now
And your heart, would knock them down
Track Name: Little Pistol
There's something in the way you walk that makes me wanna hear the way you speak
But there's gonna be something, in the way you sing
Then you said, there is enough poison in the well
And I do believe we will be dead, before the sun will set

I had a pistol, I had a bullet now, she's gone
I had a pistol, I had a bullet now, so long

I tried to suck that, snake venom dry
But you know that darker side was just, too well disguised
You see that storm approaching from your windowsill
And you try to hide, but it had come to kill

I had a pistol, I had a bullet now, she's gone
I had a pistol, I had a bullet now, so long
