"The Gentleman Callers are a rocking four piece outfit from Lansing, MI. Hand Me Down Songs album They are deeply rooted in the sounds of traditional country, with a rock and roll edge and attitude.

Hand Me Down Songs music CDs Listening to their CD will make you wanna throw your peanut shells on the floor, and puke twice before cracking open another frosty cold sixer of Milwaukee's Best." found here: http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=7238033


Not quite what you had in mind, Jenny S? More clues, please. :)

Is it the Barry Temple song that Jenny S is wanting.

Details can be found here - and I would recommend buying the Song Book and CD

Gargoyle

I found Silver Trumpets (Which I used to sing) in a book at school.
I think it was called "Apusskidu"

Oh this is embarrassing - that was me (nearly 3 years ago now!) asking for this. I never got back to the thread due to various unexpected distractions.

But to clarify - I heard someone sing this at a festival back in 2011 - I have no idea who the person was, but I do remember that the chorus was something like this:

Treasure those songs, those hand-me-down songs
.........
.........
And Treasure those hand-me-down songs

Gee, Jenny, I thought maybe you were looking for "Second Hand Rose"...

Subject: Lyr Add: HAND-ME-DOWN SONGS (The Gentleman Callers
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 28 Jul 15 - 11:46 PM

Evidently this isn't the song that Jenny S originally requested, but it's the one Maeve suggested back on 19-Sep-2012:


HAND-ME-DOWN SONGS
As recorded by The Gentleman Callers on "Hand-Me-Down Songs" (2006)

Time after the show when I found you in the wings
And I told you how I thought you were ev'rything.
I meant it at the time; I thought you were the king,
And I spent the next two years learnin' how to sing.

I wrote some country songs, played 'em ev'ry night
In these empty bar rooms underneath the neon lights.
When I get too sad, and when I'm wound too tight,
I try to tell myself you set me all right.

CHORUS: But you burned out your bill(?) for us; you left me in the cold,
Wearin' all o' your hand-me-down clothes,
And I wish you hadn't made me ever'thing I am today,
Just to turn around and walk away.

Last time that we spoke, I didn't recognize your tone,
But I knew that you were gone and you left me all alone.
I could eat the fruit from the trees that you've grown,
But then nothin' I make will ever be my own. CHORUS

Since you went away, I stand upon my feet,
And I'm spittin' out these tired songs … teeth(?),
Wearin' down the pain of your sad deceit.
Now I'm walkin' through my lonesomeness down these city streets. CHORUS
