about

Walker Road Schoolhouse is an Americana album by Alison Harris and The Barn Owls recorded live and analog at the historic Walker Road Schoolhouse building in Two Rock, CA. The goal of this recording was to capture the organic warmth and spontaneity of the band playing music in a beautiful old room together. The Walker Road Schoolhouse building, located in Sonoma County (Northern California) features high ceilings, a fire in the hearth, and views of green fields and mustard flowers through old glass windows. The majority of the music, including all lead vocals band instrumentals, and band solos, was captured live on tape with the band playing in a circle. Overdubs included vintage instruments with lots of character- Wurlitzer, Hammond B-3 organ, Pedal Steel, and Vibraphone. Alison Harris and The Barn Owls are Alison Harris (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Keys), Erik Stieg (Mandolin, Electric Guitar), Ben Bolin (Fiddle), Max Ramey (Bass), and Chipley Trombley (Drums, Percussion, Back Up Vocals). Produced by Alison Harris and The Barn Owls. Engineered, Mixed and Mastered by Brad Dollar.

lyrics

A Little Love

I don’t have a whole lot of time to breathe
A whole lot of time to be
Since I found you

I don’t have a whole lot of time to cry
There’s no reason why
Since I found you

Tell me why can’t we just get by
With a little love
With a little touch
Tell me why can’t we just touch each other
With a little love we can have enough

I can see rain clouds coming down
I don’t really mess around
Since I found you

Come touch my skin
I’m outside looking in
I don’t really know just where I’ve been
Since I found you

Tell me why can’t we just get by
With a little love
With a little touch
Tell me why can’t we just touch each other
With a little love we can have enough

I can’t say I haven’t been a little let down
I’m trying hard to find my sound
Since I found you

I like being lost where the ocean meets the open field
I learned how to beg, borrow and steal
Since I found you

Tell me why can’t we just get by
With a little love
With a little touch
Tell me why can’t we just touch each other
With a little love we can have enough
