about

Caldonia Huntsville, Alabama

-A six piece soul band from North Alabama. Caldonia's music is rooted in classic soul and blues, steeped in keys and horns, and is a direct throwback to classic Motown records of the 60's and 70's. Though founded in 2019, the name "Caldonia" is a reference to the first song ever described as “rock and roll” in print. ... more

Track Name: Brand New Man
"BRAND NEW MAN" LYRICS:
I'm a brand new man
All because I got a brand new girl
She gave me a brand new walk
And a brand new talk
I got a brand new way to feel
I feel like a king; I know I can do anything
She gives me everything I ask for
And she makes me feel wanted
And in the evening when the sun goes down,
-She tell me I'm a big 'ol man
That makes me feel like a brand new man
I'm a brand new man
All because I got a brand new girl
Everybody says I'm just lucky
And then some people, see us together
They say "that's just lucky"
And some people think its a honeymoon
But it ain't nothin that foolish
I'm a brand new man
I'm a brand new man every day
You can bet your bottom dollar I'm a brand new man
-Just because I got a brand new girl
Track Name: Oh Say
"OH SAY" LYRICS:
Hey sister won't you lay your money down?
-‘Cause you've been playing out that tired song for weeks and weeks now
And I know that he's good enough for you
But those tired eyes don't seem so bright 'cause you can't see that I'm the one for you
Oh say can you see, that the Stars they Shine for you and me
Oh say what's on your mind, ‘cause I'll be here for you until the end of time
Hey girl when you turn your back, you turn my world (upside down)
And my heart's falling, just like London now
-And I know that he's good enough for you
But tonight's the night I say what's on my mind I love you
Oh say can you see, that the stars they shine for you and me
Oh say what's on your mind, ‘cause I'll be here for you until the end of time
Oh say can you see, that the stars they shine for you and me
Oh say what's on your mind, ‘cause I'll be here for you until the end of time
Track Name: Taxi
"TAXI" LYRICS:
Well it was too late to go home in the city of sin
Might as well keep going, and start it over again
She said it’s still a rat race, no matter which way it ends
Right before we hit the dance floor again
She said baby don’t let this car pass me
I try to tell you but you slap me, slap me
You’re taking off your bra and panties in the back of a taxi
‘Bout a buck fifty slipped away from me
By the time I got loaded up, ready to sleep
-Started talking about getting something else to drink
Then we were slippin’ and slidin’ down Frenchmen street
She said baby don’t let this car pass me
I try to tell you but you slap me, slap me
You’re taking off your bra and panties in the back of a taxi
Well you’re a real fine woman, you love me oh so right here in New Orleans
You got me testifying that I’m a proper man while I’m out howlin’ in the street
Whisper words in my ear girl, you know exactly what to say
But when another other man comes around, you know I’ll be leavin’ for the break of day
She said baby don’t let this car pass me
I try to tell you but you slap me, slap me
You’re taking off your bra and panties in the back of a taxi
Track Name: Hard Luck Guy
"HARD LUCK GUY" LYRICS:
You wanna hear a sad song?
About somebody's love gone wrong
You feel you wanna cry?
Well come over to me then, I'm a hard luck guy
I've got me a sad story about love that has let me down
I've got me a sad story about a little clown, I'm a hard luck guy
You wanna hear something blue?
Well man I sure got one for you
The first little girl that I ever had, went off one day, and left me sad
So naturally I looked for another, and she left me for her dear old mother
But I knew a little girl with a charm, 'til I saw her walking on another man's arm
You wanna hear somebody moan?
I ain't got no home
You want to hear some trembling lips?
I'm ready to quit
I'm a hard luck guy
I can't seem to get a grip on this love
It always, it always passed me by yeah
I need love from now on
I need someone I can come home to at the end of my day
I'm a hard luck guy
