lyrics

Head down, into the rain he rides
The wind parts his hair on the wrong side
Blind to a road that's oh-so-long
With an untamed heart and an unpolished song

The head of the old kings hung on high
Member of his fan club until he died
He charges through darkness and machines and lights
And rises for work tomorrow at night

When the first song failed to take hold
he launched into another, I'm told
It's hard for Uptown Kelly & the Brave & Bold

Beatin' the inside of smoked stained rooms
Shakin' the bats and the cobwebs loose
He makes a break for the borderline
With a tin ear and a soul-stirring sigh

When the first song failed to take hold
he launched into another, I'm told
It's hard for Uptown Kelly & the Brave & Bold

Head down, into the rain he rides
The wind parts his hair on the wrong side
Blind to a road that's oh-so-long
With an untamed heart and an unpolished song

When the first song failed to take hold
he launched into another, I'm told
It's hard for Uptown Kelly
It's hard for Uptown Kelly
It's hard for Uptown Kelly & the Brave & Bold

about

the Flying Museum Band Toronto, Ontario

"A sonic spiritual of roots-country-folk, a southern-tinged collective that makes you want to cry out, alleluia, I have seen the light. A gritty folk jam straight from Torontopia."

"From the breezy and rustic melodies of their earlier recordings to the more urgent, polished pop of their recent output, this decidedly grounded Toronto band will put a grin on your mouth area."
