From yonder I came Even Death didn't know my name She took me by surprise And I showed her that I'm not nice Yonder came the Blues And yonder came I There's not much I can lose Take it from me I'll just sigh She took my heart and my soul But it's my Blues she didn't stole Went away without a glance I knew I didn't have a chance That is all I want Guitar vs. grief Yonder from beyond I came and I will leave

Pushed around on a branch of evolution Treated with a substitute solution Ran to see the worlds greenest meadow Maybe a little confused, not nearly sad though Like an ostrich in the sky Fire! Longer legs long for a little leasure Foot by foot on merely for my pleasure Wind is gently breezing through my feathers Bound to be on earth for worse or better Like an ostrich in the sky Fire!

Poor Charlie 02:35
There was a boy named Charlie Who surely left his home To seek his luck in working And live without a moan So our brave young Charlie Took off to find a place Where he was free, but fortune Was taking other ways He met a man named Crowley Who seemed honest and fine He offered poor young Charlie A way to earn a dime The work was pretty hard but He did the best he could He lived a better life than Young Charlie thought he would But one dark night some men came Threw Charlie off his bed He begged for help, but Crowley He slowly shook his head "Young Charlie there is nothing That I could do you see 'Cause money's more important Than your life's worth for me" Old Charlie died a sad man So take this good advice Be careful who you're dealing with Or they may end your life

Cold Day 02:43
You see us walking down the road You see us talking it's so cold We are taking pictures you can see our breaths It's so fucking cold we could freeze to death It's a cold cold day outside your door You see us standing in front of a truck You see us posing but we have bad luck Our bodies shiver under zero degrees We could use a shelter we could use some relief It's a cold cold day outside your door We are taking pictures you can see our breaths It's so fucking cold we could freeze to death It's a cold cold day outside your door

We see common sense dying all around the world Wonder what's going wrong We see young mothers broken down Sons of the Blues Everyone is wearing tight dyed jeans And glasses without lenses We feel like strangers in this world Or are we the only native ones Sons of the Blues are falling away We're looking for the sons, we don't want to forget You can be yourself again We think peer pressure is going to rise You think that's better than being alone We see dead bodies everywhere Sons of the Blues We see cyber junkies everywhere And statements without a soul When we see those people Living, dying, all on their own Sons of the Blues are falling away We're looking for the sons, we don't want to forget You can be yourself again We are the brothers The sons of the Blues Sons of the Blues are falling away We're looking for the sons, we don't want to forget You can be yourself again

Bones 02:36
Driving down the same old road again Gears are shifting and I'm back my friend Tried to leave but now I'm back for good Wandering down in my old neighborhood And I'm drowning once again Follow the way along the stream Tell me why can't I leave Follow the crowd, follow the heat I was never made for status quos The old and good ain't never what it shows A future shot in sepia tones ain't right Born and raised? More like born and died And I'm drowning once again Follow the way along the stream Tell me why can't I leave Follow the crowd, follow the heat

Fly By Night 03:33
Hey you alligator see you later, maybe you're coming back my way Oh hey mamacita you're a sexy señorita leading me astray Maybe we can meet again, better place, better time, what do you say Ok, don't respond 'cause I will grief when you don't say okay And you don't know my name, you don't know my name And I don't know your name, I don't know your name And you don't play this game, you don't play this game And you don't play this game, you are such a shame Can you see the skunk in me I just want one night, I won't be there in the morning light You want me to be your eternity I'm a fly by night, I won't be there in the morning light Split your lungs in blood and thunder when you see the holy grail Break my back and I crack my oars, I wish to prevail This leg is what propels me, my harpoon thrusts in the sky I aim for her crooked brow and I look her straight in the eye And you don't know my name, you don't know my name And I don't know your name, I don't know your name And you don't play this game, you don't play this game And you don't play this game, you are such a shame Can you see the skunk in me I just want one night, I won't be there in the morning light You want me to be your eternity I'm a fly by night, I won't be there in the morning light

Scotch 03:24
There's this stuff for gods we consume It brings us satisfaction, brings us doom Two sides of the same medal we see But the drink we long for will always be A good scotch A full-grown scotch I want much Of that good ol' scotch When you drink your scotch heaven runs down your throat But it won't last forever that's what I've been told On a cold winter's night you put on your coat Take a sip of your scotch and it will warm your soul A good scotch A full-grown scotch I want much Of that good ol' scotch We were right you can't deny When a scotch glass passes by You take a whip of that scent Nothing in the world can comprehend To that good scotch A full-grown scotch I want much Of that good ol' scotch

Cold Night 02:34
Hunted home from a dead man My best friend is undead Once we were sitting together And now I shot him in his head It's a cold night I shut the door I can't hear him no more But then there's a sound My best friend comes around It's a cold night I never treated my friend like this Another shot another hit Now his blood is all over my face My best friend is from an undead race A cold night
10.
It's a cold black night, I'm laying in my bed I can't get to sleep, there's too much in my head Now I put on my clothes and my warm winter coat A cheap bottle of wine and then I hit the road Imma put on my walking shoes And roam the night with my walking blues I'm drunk as hell, stumbling down the way I don't feel pretty well, it was a fucked up day Full moon breaks the clouds, I grab my bottle tight And I keep rolling on through its pale light Imma put on my walking shoes And roam the night with my walking blues

about

Walking Men Bamberg, Germany

A mild summer's night, the taste of whiskey and beer and some good tunes.
These are the evenings the two guys of Walking Men live for. They are playing their gritty music in bars clubs and festivals since 2010.
Rock and Blues to dance to, handmade guitars, crazy stories and the passion for music are a given.
So come join us, our porch is big enough, the beers are cold and the music's good.
