about

Samuel Barker Houston, Texas

After spending years on the road playing shows with the mere hope of recouping travel costs, the title of the album, All This For Gas Money?, was natural. It's not a slight against the life, but a playful joke for those who live it. It's a testament to keeping your head up after averaging 149 miles per show for an average payout of $36 for 2010. You covered the cost to get there, so keep going! ... more

Track Name: Regrind
Regrind

I’m ready for a regrind
Air Duster and box wine
Outfoxed myself this time
And I don’t care anymore

Flying down the fast lane
Drivin’ and Cryin’
Waitin’ Around To Die
And I don’t care anymore.

So I’m staring at white lines
Writing so hard to find
Searching for a sign
Why I don’t care anymore

I don’t care.
It’s just not fair.

Unsteady as a young colt
Busch thirty-pack and Son Volt
You know I’ve lost all hope
And you don’t care anymore

This time I’m gonna stay clean
Just say what you mean
Another Drunk Poet’s Dream
And you don’t care anymore

So I’m staring at white lines
Snorting so hard to find
Waiting for a sign
Why you don’t care anymore.

You don’t care.
It’s just not fair.
Track Name: One Reason
One Reason

Once every day and twice on Sunday
I pray that one day I’ll be fine.

All these ups and downs have got me reelin’.
Got me feelin’ out of time…

Time and time again I wake up with nothin’.
Just screams and cussin’. Quiet now.

Misery don’t even want my company,
And you thinks that’s good for me. Somehow.

I only need one reason to get out of bed today.
I only need one reason to play for you this way.

Every earnest eye is full of pity.
They just don’t get me. Move on.

Born into a world so full of anger.
Pain and danger. Die alone.

Once every day and twice on Sunday
I pray that one day I’ll be fine.

I only need one reason to get out of bed today.
I only need one reason to pay for you this way.
