about

" Archived Ballads," is another Southern Raiders Band album that is loaded with meaningful ballads and hopefully have songs that you can relate to. Our producer shelved SRB tunes through the years and Ironically, when these tune were put together as an album format they fit together perfectly and that was discovered incidentally…Cool. This album contains love ballads all the way to a couple of songs that has a 50’s, “Big Band,” sound that came from a fan who once asked if we could play any of that type music. I thought, from a southern rock perspective, that was an interesting request so we wrote a couple due to that request, and yes it even includes the famous, ”Bop-She-Wop,” type harmonies and we start this album out with the tune... Since we liked the outcome of that one song we also wrote another blues type song in that realm of style called, “Ain't good enough,” and is also on this album. Turned out to be really cool songs to play live. Then concerning serious issues, we also have a tune we wrote about our planet and some of the problems we are having that everyone should really be concerned about, the song, ”Turn this thing around,” touches base with some of this most important issue. This is just a few of the songs you will find on this interesting album of Southern Raider Band music. As you will hear this album is very versatile and we hope you enjoy the our, “Archived Ballads.” So we hope if you decide to add this album to your music collection that you’ll know you have actual collected some of the, literal, SRB archived music. Take a listen and if you like it buy we would certainly appreciate it and if you are interested in learning more about the Southern Raiders Band let us know we more than welcome you don’t shy away say HI.

NEVER SAY GOOD-BY


VERSE
I READ THE WORDS YOU WROTE LAST NIGHT THAT I FOUND IN YOUR HAND

AND I LOOK INTO THE STARS ABOVE AND SEE A TWINKLE IN YOUR EYES
SO I’LL SAY GOOD NIGHT TO YOU MY LOVE BUT I’LL NEVER SAY GOOD-BYE

VERSE
I FOUND A GIFT SO NICELY WRAPPED WITH A LABEL ADDRESSED TO ME AND I SMILED AT THE THOUGHT THAT YOU HAD PLANNED THE OCCASION SO SPECIALLY

AND AT TIMES I FEEL OUR LOVE’S SO STRONG WE COULD CHALLENGE THE MIGHTY SEAS
AND I SEARCH FOR WAYS TO PROVE MY LOVE FOREVER FAITHFULLY

LEAD

VERSE / TAG
I SPOKE WITH YOU LATE LAST NIGHT YOU HAD SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND
AND YOU TOLD ME OF A LAND YOU SAW IN A DREAM YOU HAVE SOMETIMES
AND YOU ASK ME IF THE SUN COULD SHINE THROUGH THE DARK GRAY SILVER CLOUDS
AND YOU TOLD ME YOU COULD SAIL AWAY ON A SHIP THAT’S HEAVEN BOUND
AND YOU TOLD ME YOU COULD SAIL AWAY ON A SHIP THAT’S HEAVEN BOUND

I LOOKED UP AT THE SKY BABY
BUT THE RAIN STILL POURS

CHORUS / TAG
WELL DON'T YOU KNOW THERE’S A SUMMERTIME BLUES
YOU FELT YOU HAD A LITTLE TOO MUCH A LITTLE TOO MUCH TO LOSE
THERE'S NO MORE LOVE IN THE SUMMERTIME BLUES

THE CHILDREN HAVE NO GRASS FOR THEIR PLAYING GROUNDS
TELL ME HOW DO WE STOP THE DESTRUCTION ALL ABOUT
TELL ME HOW DO WE TURN THIS THING AROUND

VERSE
I CAN'T SEE THE SUNSHINE FOR THE GRAY SKIES UP ABOVE
THERE'S SMOKE AND SMOG FROM THE FACTORIES
OH DOES NO ONE REALLY CARE
CAN’T YOU LEND US A HAND CAN'T YOU SEE WE’RE GOING DOWN
AND WE NEED A LITTLE HELP FROM UP ABOVE

CHORUS
TREES AND RIVERS ARE SLOWLY GOING DOWN
THE CHILDREN HAVE NO GRASS FOR THEIR PLAYING GROUNDS
TELL ME HOW DO WE STOP THE DESTRUCTION ALL ABOUT

My Angel Cries


Last night in my sleep I heard an Angel weep
When I woke to my surprise those tears were in her eyes
Angel what could make you feel this way
Can I make those tears go away


What could make an Angel cry
What did I do to make her cry
What could make an Angel so blue
I want to take her tears but I don’t know what to do
Tears are flowing from her eyes now the answer’s clear
Finally I know what makes my Angel cry it’s me


Just one look at her made me break down
Seeing her this way really gets me down
I tried to walk away my heart was filled with pain
Then I knew that I just had to stay


What could make my Angel cry
What did I do to make her cry
What could make an Angel so blue
I want to take her tears but I don’t know what to do
Tears are flowing from her eyes now the answer’s clear
Finally I know what makes my Angel cry it’s me
Oh Lord it’s me it’s me
