about

Track Dogs Madrid, Spain

Track Dogs are an acoustic four piece based in Spain but hail from Ireland, the US and UK.

Taking their name from the NY subway maintenance teams this closely-knit group of ex-pats have opted for Cajón instead of drums and trumpet in place of electric guitar. Four-part harmonies steal the show.

Track Name: To The End
To The End

It's easy to shame
Easy to blame
But not so easy to be true

It's easy to smirk
Easy to shirk
And tell them it's the best you can do

Me I'm just glad I'm not you
I couldn't do the things you do
Don't make war, make amends
I'll give you one more chance my friend
To see this through now to the end

It's easy to judge
Easy to shrug
But is it really up to you

It's easy to spite
I said easy, not right
To let them tell you what to do

Me I'm just glad I'm not you
I couldn't do the things you do
Don't make war, make amends
I'll see this through now to the end
I'll give you one more chance my friend
Track Name: So Much Dust
So Much Dust

It was a morning like
Like any other you've seen
No light, no love, no longer
Will the streets be clean
I saw a cold hand reach
For the warmth inside
No time, no place for lies
No matter what we hide

You do all you can
To fight the good fight like a man
But times like these they take too much
And all we have to show, all we have to show
Is so much dust

It was a night like this
When the cold winds came
We cried we knew that things
Would never be the same
Like the many times
We've been here before
How long how long how long
'Til we say no more

You do all you can
To fight the good fight like a man
But times like these they take too much
And all we have to show, all we have to show
Is so much dust

It was a night like this
When the cold winds came
Oh we prayed
It wasn't all in vain
Track Name: Whatever Happens
Whatever Happens

Whatever happens happens I say
Just another bump on my way
Nothing to see here
Just keep on moving
No reason to stop me
Do what I'm doing

Whatever happens happens I guess
No point in making more of this mess
Don't mind the forecast
It's only weather
Just keep believing
It's gonna get better

You left me loving on morning street
Had to drag myself on my broken feet
Hit my head on the bathroom door
I woke up bleeding on the floor
That's it, I won't be defeated
Not me, I really don't need it

I caught my love with someone other than me
Hid my heart so she couldn't see
We all risk it when we play the game
Win, lose it's all the same
That's it, no hard feelings
Not me, I'm too busy dreaming

Whatever happens happens these days
No surprises and no promises
There's no one hiding
Behind the curtain
No big mystery
nothing certain

Whatever happens happens its true
And no one knows when it happens to you
It's all so random
No design here
Can't see what's coming
But there's nothing to fear
Track Name: Broken Strings
Broken Strings

Don't speak to me, about the truth
Better yet, don't talk at all
You could look, me in the eye
While you're pullin' out my tooth
So why do you lie
When you could say something of use?
Stop truthin' me, when I can see is false

Yes I can hear what you're sayin'
You think you're feelin' something real
And I can see that you're playin'
My simple mind
And a lucky hand, that helps you seal the deal

Don't try to sell, me broken strings
Your history and mystery,
The depth and breadth of
The charade just depresses me
The simplest of things
Not so easy to come by
What the honest heart will bring
You might never find

Yes I can hear what you're sayin'
You think you're feelin'
something real
And I can see that you're playin'
My simple mind, and a lucky hand,
that helps you seal the deal

So keep them now, your broken strings
I've no need for the less than real
Track Name: Bon Scott, He Rocked
Bon Scott, He Rocked

We played a show down on the coast
A stones throw from the beach
The crowd were good people
We stayed a while to meet them
And had the best time in weeks

A song came on the stereo
That really took us back
A voice that shook the ground of rock
Way before Back in Black

Bon Scott he rocked
The rest of us try to roll
Bon Scott, when he rocked
All the world lost control

My misspent youth now pays the rent
Thanks in part to dear old Bon
Where would I be without those songs
If they hadn't gone and steered me wrong

Bon Scott he rocked
The rest of us try to roll
Bon Scott, when he rocked
All the world lost control

Some say the devil was in that young man
Or how else could he leave that way
But some folks should never ever open their mouths
Unless they've something good to say

Bon Scott he rocked
The rest of us try to roll
Bon Scott, when he rocked
All the world lost control
Track Name: Orion Sees
Orion Sees

Once I was a deckhand on a silken sailing boat
I could lay back and tell the stars to watch us wherever you are
And wherever I am as I'd slowly float
The wind in the shrouds whispered low...

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

Once I was ridin' on a Silver Vista train
I could watch for the clouds to part and wait for the moon to start
To glimmer through the gray and sparkle through the rain
Heard whistle whine over the panoramic panes

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

Once I walked for miles alone up in the hills
Climbed above the tree line looked to Orion's eyes
The marmots and the rocks stood still
And the lonesome wolf cry soared wherever it willed...
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

I can see Orion, but he don't say a thing
You can see Orion; he can hear you sing

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ...
Track Name: Love Me Like You Used To
Love Me Like You Used To

Sally O' was hard to handle
I kept her number in a different phone
Callin' all night till I gave in
She was waiting when I got back home
Asking all kinds of questions
Telling all kinds of lies
Sally O's the kind of girl you'll miss if it ever comes to goodbyes

Love it ain't hard to find
But it sure seems hard to keep
Love me like you used to

With Sally O it was always something
You could never put your finger on
And try as I might to put up a fight
There was nothing that could right that wrong

Asking all kinds of questions
Telling all kinds of lies
Sally will turn you upside down
Yeah she'll spin you up, down and around

Love it ain't hard to find
But it sure seems hard to keep
Love me like you used to
Track Name: Only Human
Only Human

Stop doing it, stop trying so hard
Stop thinking so much, it's only driving you mad
You're only human, no one expects the world of you,
Stop worrying, you know you're doing the best you can do

You may not be where where you wanna be
And who gives a damn what anybody says
You've got much more than you had ever dreamed
You've come so far from where you started off
A suitcase, clothes and there was nothing else
You never gave up so don't stop keeping on

So stop thinking now, that you're not good enough
Stop letting it, turn you into someone you're not
You're only human, no one expects the world from you
Stop feeling there's something you need to prove

You've come so far from where you started off
A suitcase, clothes and there was nothing else
You never gave up so don't stop keeping on
You've come so far from where you started off
A suitcase, clothes and there was nothing else
You never gave up so don't stop keeping on

Don't fear don't swerve
Don't lose your nerve
Just stay on Track
And Don't look back
Track Name: Don't Waste Time
Don't Waste Time

I swore I never knew what it was I was missing
It's funny how you can live your life only wishing
When you can be whoever you wanna be
You can do whatever you wanna do

It's not like I've been sittin' round doing sweet F.A.
I did my time in a suit and tie for the jefe
But everyday I gave I won't see again
Every night I prayed for some enlightenment

Don't waste your time
Above all don't waste mine
Don't waste your time
Such a precious thing
And it's all we've got to give

Oh my brother, my cousin, my lover, my friend
So, so much I wish that I could change
What was undone then I can't do today.
But I can give you my heart starting right away.
You can go wherever you wanna go
Don't stop now, don't fear what you don't know

Don't waste your time
Above all don't waste mine
Don't waste your time
Such a precious thing
And it's all we've got to give
Track Name: The Lights Went Out In Cotos
The Lights Went Out In Cotos

Oh, the lights went out in Cotos
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
The Oak kept a burnin in the stove
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Wind is rippin, snowmelt drippin
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Pine cones shakin off the trees
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3

The train rolled in the station
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Lumberjacks and holiday makers
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Shrooms outside are growing wild
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Put'em in the basket, we'll cook'em on the fire.
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3

The lights went out in Cotos
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
But the oak kept a burnin in stove
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Lock us in we'll stay inside
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
I believe it's gonna be that kind of a night
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3

Lock us in cuz we don't mind
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Shut them shutters and stoke up the fire
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Clap your hands or put a banjo on your knee
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3
Sing it like you know it chime in with me
1 time, 2 times, That makes 3

Now shake it (Shake it)
Shake it (Shake it)
Shake it (Shake it)
Shake it 'til you break it, nobody gonna see

The lights (The lights)
Went out (Went out)
In Cotos (In Cotos)
In Cotos (In Cotos)

The lights (The lights)
Went out (Went out)
In Cotos (In Cotos)
In Cotos (In Cotos)

They went out (They went out)
They went out (They went out)
They went out (They went out)
They went out
Track Name: Ooh La La
Poor old granddad
I laughed at all his words
I thought he was a bitter man
He spoke of woman's ways

They'll trap you, then they use you
Before you even know
For love is blind and you're far too kind
Don't ever let it show

I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

The can can's such a pretty show
They'll steal your heart away
But backstage, back on earth again
The dressing rooms are gray

They come on strong and it ain't too long
Before they make you feel a man
But love is blind and you soon will find
You're just a boy again

When you want her lips, you get a cheek
Makes you wonder where you are
If you want some more and she's fast asleep
Then she's twinkling with the stars

Poor young grandson, there's nothing I can say
You'll have to learn, just like me
And that's the hardest way
Ooh La La
Ooh La La

I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger
