Don't worry bout me babe, don't worry bout me I got my feet up by the old Jewel Tree I left my life of hurry For a time of ease Don't worry bout me babe, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me babe, cause I got the time Plenty of bread here, and a bottle of wine She brought a piece of pie And a slice of cheese Don't worry bout me babe, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me baby, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me, I'm gettin' where I got to go We travel the same road, I'm just taking it slow I'm gonna get there, Eventually So don't worry bout me baby, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me babe, I got lots of class I don't think too much bout the future or the past We're gonna make it Just wait and see Don't worry bout me babe, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me babe, don't worry bout me I got my feet up by the old Jewel Tree I left my life of hurry For a time of ease Don't worry bout me babe, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me babe, cause I got the time Plenty of bread here, and a bottle of wine She brought a piece of pie And a slice of cheese Don't worry bout me babe, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me baby, don't worry bout me Don't worry bout me, don't worry bout me

Well the white lies that you tell to help yourself sleep And the tricks you use to fool people you meet Their faces fill the screen, while the screen fills the day But when they knock at your door, you can't meet their gaze And we know it all to be true Yet let it pass by without much ado You do what you got to to get through Do what you got to to get through And I wake up in the morning to another headline There's 20 more dead, no one can say why And I tell myself this'll be the last time That I stand aside and watch idly by But soon it becomes old news The days go by and then rent comes due You do what you got to to get through When the world comes out swingin' would you toe the line Or would you hide in your basement And keep asking Why? It's an answer you already knew If we can't make waves we just make due You do what you got to to get through Do what you got to to get through Oh, do what you got to to get through Yeah, do what you got to to get through Yeah, do what you got to to get through

Just got on the road again, me and a few of my best friends And boy we never felt so alive Fully loaded up the truck and took a left past Winnemucca Headed 95 down 95 But what do I see Crushing my dreams Two pairs of brake lights, like snake eyes Slowing down in front of me California Drivers, pay mind To that angry son of a bitch comin' up from behind You better keep right, except to pass Or I'm gonna drive this miniature van right up your ass Just pulled off in Idaho, look around and what do ya know Everyone here seems to know how to drive That is unless you're headed out, up towards Banks or Crouch You might have trouble staying alive Theirs is the kind That feels so inclined They pass whenever they please Ain't heard of no double yellow line California drivers, mind yourselves There's a whole lot of oncoming traffic that would hate to give you hell You better keep right, and stay in your lane Or I'm gonna cause that brand new Corvette a whole world of pain Tour's at it's end, we're back where we began In the good ol' state of California Yes it's true I'm one of you, the worst drivers in the whole blue earth they say But that does not mean I'm digging your scene Maybe it's driving like that, that makes them charge you so damn much for gasoline California drivers, get back Just because I got a mile long record don't mean I'm giving you slack You better keep right, and burn that gas I'm gonna drive this miniature van I'm gonna go as fast as I can You're gonna kiss the back of my hand as I'm driving past

Just another night, Wonder what I'd find No where in mind, but I'll soon be on my way I end up in the same place each time Where the faces I forgot find it hard to find And they all have to have their say Instead of kickin' myself for the things that I wish I'd done I could be, on the run Some place in the sun That's not where I am, oh but you can bet that I'll be headed there as fast as I can I got a head that's full of half baked plans and I'm a' follow em' through this time We're back home, Feeling low We'll ride again baby this I know So let's just take this as a sign Instead of kickin' myself for the things that I wish I'd done I could be, on the run Some place in the sun I could be (On the run) On the run (Some place in the sun) Some place in the sun In the sun

Jawbone 05:11
Oh, Jawbone, when did you first go wrong? Jawbone, where is it you belong? Three time loser, they said I'd never learn But I'll bide my time now before I ever wait my turn I see those demons, but won't look em' in the face I don't push those problems away I just keep em' at an arms length Well I'm a thief and I dig it out on the streets, I'm gonna sing it oh I'm a thief and I dig it I creep through the night up on my toes But by the look in my eye, you'd say it never shows You got your name written up on the pst office wall But that puts you on edge now cause they wrote it too small I'm a thief and I dig it Out on the streets, I'm gonna sing it Oh I'm a thief and I dig it Oh jawbone, When did you first go wrong Jawbone, don't you think it's time you went home Hoooowee! You done it now man You got a guy on the inside and he likes your plan Kick in the door and draw your gun, you came ready for your assault But all the while i slide through the crowd and come creepin' right out the vault I'm a thief, and I dig it Out on the streets, I'm gonna sing it I'm a thief, and I dig it, Yeah

101 03:46
Well 21's a number, makes a betting man's fingers itch Pull on back the bolt, better hope that trigger finger don't twitch A man's been left on the side of the road, his pockets full of Jacks The rearview glows with red and blue, and that's when I hit the gas Oh we're flying up the 101 Flying up the 101 Flyin'... God's more afraid of us then we ever were of him Walking barefoot through the sodom land wearing nothing but a grin Break out the booze, kick off your shoes, get down to the mortal sin There ain't no room left in this world for no god-fearing man Yeah we're flying up the 101 Flying up the 101 Flying up the 101 Time's up, your tale is told Gone to where the gringos go to grow green gold If your whole life fits inside of a matchbox Or if you got stacks stackin' up in a stash box Everybody's runnin' though some are standing still But when your turn comes don't you turn to run, you just fire at your will And we're flying up the 101 Flying up the 101 Flying up the 101 Flying up the 101 Flying up the 101 Oh, flying up the 101

Summer Camp 04:03
Well, what do we have here This the kind of thing that only comes round this time of year It's the kind of feeling oh you know The kind I hold so dear How, how could I have known That I'd be dancing with you tonight when I got here a month ago Love is like a summer I suppose Yeah you can still get it hot when you dance real slow Come a little closer (A little closer) Come a little closer baby You know that I been loving you (That I been loving you) Know that I been loving you lately Oh let me take you home, and we can be alone What do you say? Oh you know that you been driving That you been driving Oh you been driving me crazy

about

Here it is! The second Boot Juice album is here. This album took us to musical places we hadn't been before. With the introduction of the two newest members of Boot Juice, Caleb Sanders and Micah Marmorstein on alto saxophone and trumpet, the feel of these songs evolved into something different than the first album. Ranging from big band swing and country/bluegrass, to neo-soul and rock steady reggae. The songs draw on a wide range on influences, but still remain at their core uniquely Boot Juicy.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign and months of planning, the initial recording session started in Los Angeles on March 12th 2020; Just two days before California went under shelter in place orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, with only a couple of days in the studio with producer Scott Gordon, the session was cut short and we all returned home to begin the isolation that would consume the rest of the year.
With the support of our Kickstarter patrons, the band was able to put together a home studio, and continued to make the album remotely with Scott Gordon still producing and mixing from his home in Virginia. So, over the next several months, and hundreds of studio hours, the songs came together in ways that we didn't expect. Really, with out the pressure of being in the studio, with time constraints and deadlines, we were able to explore them further and came out with a collection that we are truly proud of.
Thank you to everyone that has supported us, and believed in what we are doing. We hope you enjoy these songs as much as we enjoyed making them, and we hope to play them for you all in person as soon as we can safely do so.

Love to all,

Boot Juice
