We are very proud of this record...

Since June of 2013, when life made our paths to cross, we have published five Long Play albums and this one is going to be the first one featuring only our own compositions. We have selected the fifteen songs of our catalogue that we believe that are the most representative of our music and our very broad influences. All the photographies are from Javi King, good friend and brilliant artist that have captured perfectly our Rock n Roll souls with his camera.

We play American roots music and we hate labels, so in this album you will find from Delta and Chicago Blues to Southern Rock and Rockabilly along with Outlaw Country and traditional American Music that we hope that you will love to listen, at least as much as we enjoy making it.

We have titled the record "15 Lucky Shots: The Original Collection" because these fifteen pieces, along with all the rest of music that we play have only brought luck and good fortune to us, and we hope that we will keep on writing songs for a very long time...maybe forever?

Thank you very much to all of you who keep on supporting, encouraging us and making our job easier, you are the salt of the Earth, and we love you dearly.

We want to dedicate this album with Love, to our family, children, friends and enemies too.

FORMATO CD DISPONIBLE MUY PRONTO, RESERVAS Y PEDIDOS POR EMAIL: ramblingee@outlook.com

Estamos muy orgullosos de este disco...

Desde Junio de 2013, cuando se cruzaron nuestros caminos para no volver a separarse, hemos publicado cinco albums y este, el sexto, va a ser el primero formado íntegramente por nuestras propias composiciones. Hemos elegido las quince canciones que creemos que representan mejor nuestro estilo musical, reflejando nuestras muy vastas y variadas influencias. Todas las fotografías que ilustran el disco son de nuestro gran amigo y fotógrafo Javi King, quien con su objetivo capturó perfectamente nuestra alma de Rock n Roll.

Tocamos música de raíces americana y odiamos las etiquetas, es por ello que en este disco encontrarás desde Blues eléctrico y del Delta a Rock Sureño, pasando por Rockabilly, Outlaw Country y melodías tradicionales que esperamos disfrutaréis al menos tanto como hacemos nosotros escribiéndolas y tocándolas.

En total 15 canciones, por ello hemos decidido llamar a este trabajo "15 Lucky Shots", porque desde que comenzamos todo lo que nuestras canciones nos han traído ha sido buena suerte, y cada vez, poco a poco, vamos llegando a mas gente y esperamos seguir haciendo música juntos por mucho tiempo...a lo mejor para siempre?

Gracias a todos los que nos seguís, apoyáis y nos dais ánimo cada día para seguir en la brecha, sois la Sal de la Tierra y os llevamos en el corazón.

Queremos dedicar este disco, con mucho amor, para nuestras familias, hijos, amigos y enemigos.

All the songs written and arranged by Sara Gee & Ramblin’ Matt

Track Name: Nothing To Lose
NOTHING TO LOSE

They say when you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
They say when you got something, you gotta fight for what is yours
There are many ways to keep on going
There are many ways and reasons to hold on
There are many lost souls to keep on loving
And fight for what we have and what we don´t

Cars drive past along the highway
Clouds slide slow over the sky
Trains pass many times in a lifetime
Like blood runs through the station of our hearts
Track Name: A Woman Needs A Friend
A WOMAN NEEDS A FRIEND

When I was just a girl I heard many people say
A woman needs a man by her side
But now that I´ve grown up, I know that was a lie
And I don´t need no man to break me down

Well, a woman needs a friend
who can love her and help her on the way
Well a woman, needs someone
who can share with her the stars and make her laugh.

You are going to try, to find the perfect guy
Who can always call you "my sweetheart"
Then you will hang around, and you´ll go up and down
And come back home with empty and broken heart

Well, a woman needs a friend
who can love her and help her on the way
Well a woman, needs someone
who can share with her the stars and make her laugh.

But now I´ve found someone, his name´s Ramblin Matt
He´s not very smart but treats me right
And I just realized that in a woman´s life
There´s no place for lies and cheatin´hearts

Well, a woman needs a friend
who can love her and help her on the way
Well a woman, needs someone
who can share with her the stars and make her laugh.
Track Name: Rambler's Romance
RAMBLER´S ROMANCE

I've been up and I've been down
Done my share of being round
From the green of Tennessee to the African blue sea
I've been busy with the business of being me

Been a broken man all my days
But what I own it's yours to take
Never knew very well what's the use of being a rich man
If your soul is full of greed and outta rest

This is a ramblers' romance, just a ramblers' romance
Alright, mmmmm

I've been high and also stoned
And I've drank whiskey til I drowned
I spent ten long years shooting brown shit down my gullet
But I made it half alive and mostly sound

Found redemption on the road
Playing my guitar everywhere I go
If you drop me a dollar I'll sing you a song,
loose a fifty and you'll get me singing all night long

Up on a plane, down in a boat
On a train or walkin', limpin' or dragging myself out
Jumping oceans, flying mountains, crossing rivers, driving roads
I learned myself how to be a rollin stone

This is a ramblers' romance, just a ramblers' romance
Track Name: Hyena Smile
HYENA SMILE

Once my daddy told me, girl
you better just take care with the ones you meet,
people use to lie, they're not what they say
so you better be smart and don't show your real face.

Always bring your smile, also if you feel sad
and don't let no one know the reason of your pain,
because once they know they'll use it as a bomb,
for when you feel good and they do not.

But I never learnt to wear a phony face,
trying to show up like everything's ok
because when I feel bad I can cry and cry
and let the ones I love, take care of my heart.

Once my mommy told me, girl...
Track Name: Sad And Lonesome
SAD AND LONESOME

I´m so sad and lonesome, I don´t know what to do
I´m so sad and lonesome, I don´t know what to do
In the morning when I wake up
Everything turns out to blue

I´ve tried many times to leave the past behind
I´ve tried many times to leave the past behind
But the more I keep on trying
The more that ghost keep coming back

Now you tell me baby, what I have to do
Now you tell me baby, what I have to do
Cause I wanna keep on living
I wanna walk with my own boots

You can be the one to keep me satisfied
You can be the one to keep me satisfied
But you are not my father
You ain´t no friend of mine
Track Name: Morning Rain (Ballad of a Lonesome Drunk)
MORNING RAIN
(Ballad of a Lonesome Drunk)

There are times in the life of a man
When things get very hard to understand
When love turns into sorrow and joy turns to pain
And all you got is the sweet morning rain

Morning rain come and take away my pain
Morning rain dripping down my window frame
Like my teardrops keep-a-fallin, like the kisses that I´m blowing
To your health, your happiness and grace

Like the knife cuts the butter on a tray
Like a lion drives its claws into a prey
Like a hammer on red iron, like a child´s hand on wet clay
Please rain on me and wash my blues away

Waitress come and sit with me tonight
Come and pour me some brown liquor into a dirty glass
Come and sing with me way downlow
Any old blues or a sad Hank Williams song

Morning comes and the wind makes me sway
As I´m walking and stumbling on the way
Ain´t no use in being mad, ain´t no gain on feeling low
So bring it on and let the good times roll

Waitress come and sit with me tonight
Come and pour me some brown liquor into a dirty glass
Come and sing with me way downlow
Any old blues or a sad Hank Williams song
Track Name: Ain't Gonna Be Nobody's Girl
AIN´T GONNA BE NOBODY´S GIRL

I´m gonna sing it all out, scream it all loud
I´m gonna take no shit from anyone who comes around
Cause I´m tired, tired of feeling blue
So you got to understand, I´m gonna be nobody´s girl

Ain´t gonna be your slave boss, I´m gonna be no nurse
I´m gonna take no shit from anyone that´s on my way
Cause I´m tired, tired of feeling blue
So you got to understand, I´m gonna be nobody´s girl

You´re gonna sing it all out...(2nd verse)
We´re gonna sing it all loud...(3rd verse)

Now it´s time to dance, c´mon sing it, dance it, let it go!
Life is not to cry about...
Track Name: All Aboard!
ALL ABOARD

I like to travel on the train
And see the life passing by the window
Leave the City at the rhythm of our heartbeat
And the clouds slide slow over the sky

I like to stop in every town
And see who is goin' up and down
What kind of shoes, high-heels or boots
Or wich kind of book is in your hand

So if you're thinking of going somewhere else
I tell you to pick up the train
With the rhythm of a heartbeat, streched on your seat
Lookin' trough the window how the season changes

Once on the Amtrak to Memphis,
I met somebody on the train
Was a well dressed fellow, with his note book and his pen
When he asked me for my ticket I could just escape

We ran til the last empty wagon
and he put his hands under my dress
I closed my eyes eyes in Lousiana
And I was back in Texas when I opened them again.

So if you're thinking of going somewhere else...
Track Name: The Girl With The Heroin Dress
THE GIRL WITH THE HEROIN DRESS

If you´re lonely, and you don´t know what to do
Don´t try to find her, I´m in front of you
If you´re sad, there´s no place to hide yourself
Knock on my door, I´ll be there for you

Before she was your way to escape
She could ease your loneliness
But now you know, there´s another way
I´m the girl with the heroin dress

My boots are ready, my sword is sharp
My shield is shining like the morning light
Your wild horse would start to drive on
To places that you´ve never seen before

Before she was your way to escape
She could ease your loneliness
But now you know, there´s another way
I´m the girl with the heroin dress
Track Name: House Of The Blues
HOUSE OF THE BLUES

Mmm....Sometimes, brother
When you feel like a motherless child
Your piston seems to burn no steam
And you're running out of gas

There's a hole in your boot, cause you've been ramblin
Ever since you pawned your car
And it feels like years since the last time
You held a dollar in your hand

And it feels like the heavens are falling over you
And there ain't a joint in town where your credit stills good
But if you have a heart that keeps on beating, we have a place for you
Come and join us in the house of the blues

And it's been three nights that you've been seen
Begging for a friend to pay you company
But the only one who hears you
Is that bottle of JD

There's a light that shines down the avenue
And the door is never closed for a guy like you
You can buy a dream for a buck or two
And you'll be the hero no matter what you do

So if it feels like the heavens are falling over you
And there ain't a joint in town where your credit stills good
But if you have a heart that keeps on beating, we have a place for you
Come and join us in the house of the blues
Track Name: Ant Working Blues
ANT WORKING BLUES

I´ve got the ant working blues, I make my fortune step by step
I´ve got the ant working blues, I make my fortune step by step
Cause when you want it all too fast
Everything will go as fast as it came

I pick the jobs that nobody wants
If they pay me a hundred dollars or if the pay me four
Cause I´ve got the ant working blues, I make my fortune step by step
Cause if you win it all to fast, everything go as fast as it came

I play my guitar everywhere I can
If they give me a hundred dollars, or if they give me ten
Cause I´ve got the ant working blues, I make my fortune step by step
Cause when you want it all to fast, everything will go as fast as it came.
Track Name: Ask The Devil
ASK THE DEVIL

I remember all those nights
waiting for you to come back
And I know how much it hurt
when no one even said your name

Still I know I´ll wait for you
to come one day and ease my pain
To say "hi babe, I´m doing good"
to show at least that you just care

I forgot how much it hurt,
to live your dream as a nightmare
To change your pink dreams into blues,
to be in love with what you hate

Still I know I´ll wait for you
to come one day and ease my pain
To say "hi babe, I´m doing good",
to show at least that you just care

Now I can only sing my song,
and pray the Lord to set me free
And ask the Devil, if you are there
to make in hell a place for me
Track Name: No Worries Blues
NO WORRIES BLUES

Good morning mama, ain´t gonna worry no more
Good morning mama, ain´t gonna worry no more
No more you´ll see me crying
No more you´ll see me low

Good morning Blues, see how do you do?
Good morning Blues, see how do you do?
You won´t see me worrying
Bout the things I used to do

And if you mistreat me, ain´t gonna raise a fuss
And if you mistreat me, ain´t gonna raise a fuss
But someday darling
You´re gonna lose your happy home

Got my clothes in a matchbox and I´m ready to go
Got no time for more trouble, got no room for more junk
So I´m leaving in the morning
Don´t wanna worry no more
Track Name: Pirate Love
PIRATE LOVE

Time runs very fast when I feel good
Tears turn into diamonds when I cry them for you
My bed is a like a boat drifting in the sea
Following the stars searching for you

I think I'm gonna keep floating on the waves
And see where I end up at
Maybe you're somewhere waiting for me
On an island with a chest under a palm tree

Alarm clock just rung it's time to wake up
I find myself dreaming with the deep blue sea
With my sheet as a flag of a pirate boat
And my pillow between my legs dripping form you

Alarm clock just rung my dream is over
It's hard to open my eyes
I wish I was a pirate with a patch in my eye
Or I wish that I was just blind

Then I'll see you everywhere I go
Now I know why they say love is blind
You know you're the captain of the boat of my dreams
On an island with a chest under a palm tree
Track Name: Are You Gonna Wait?
ARE YOU GONNA WAIT?


Things have changed, there´s so much to do
or are you gonna wait for the Lord to change the world?
The same Lord that let us kill each other
and the one who let our children drown

Give me your hand and let me feel your power
or are you gonna wait for someone else to do your job?
It´s time to stand up, go to figth for what is yours
we have time, we are togheter, and we are more

Stop telling us how we have to live
Stop telling us when we have to cry
Stop telling us what we have to eat
Stop telling us how we have to die

Imagine there´s no countries, imagine there´s no pain
no hunger, no liers, no one to steal our bread
This world is full of cheaters, and you all know who you are
and i tell you one thing for sure, none of you will touch the sky

And we don´t need no Jesus, no Buddah, or Allah
what we need to change the world is to trust what we have inside
