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

Broken Again

Headed for the big lights
We’re going to have a big time
Three girls and a boy
He’s going to play you like a toy

Talking to the man
Holding his hand
Moonlight gaze
You don’t even know
The game he plays

Looking for love in the right place
Looking for love and now you’re falling from grace
Looking for love, trying to win
Now you’ve gone and got your heart broken again

You were a messed up fool
You were a concubine
Little baby lost her cool
When it comes to love
There ain’t no reason or rhyme

Dancing to the funky METERS
Becoming a believer
The lust and the sin
Oh the tonic and the gin

16 days, 16 nights
Girl, you didn’t even put up a fight
Your heart’s on the rails
You’re about to become a broken fairy tale

Looking for love in the right place
Looking for love and now you’re falling from grace
Looking for love, trying to win
Now you’ve gone and got your heart broken again
