about

Bow Thayer Vermont

Bow Thayer's music features his custom Bojotar and fuses experimental elements with Americana, rock, bluegrass, and folk, resulting in a singular, progressive sound that has earned descriptions ranging from “Green Mountain soul” to “modern backwoods music.” American Songwriter says this "onetime Levon Helm compatriot is the best artist to come from New England in recent years." ... more

Track Name: I Can't Wait (To See You Again)
I woke up on the right side of bed
Looked on over but you weren’t there
Looked at my watch it said quarter past ten
I can’t wait to see you again

Put on my socks and I went downstairs
Brushed my teeth and combed my hair
in the a leaky faucet with a clogged up drain
I can’t wait to see you again

My little kitty brought me one dead bird
two dead mice and one dead squirrel
Had ourselves a funeral but nobody came
I can’t wait to see you again

Oh baby, you really scare me,
Got me so nervous, but I ain’t worried

Ready or not, here I come
If my car won’t start, I’ll stick out my thumb
See me walking backwards
in the breakdown lane
I can’t wait to see you again

Oh baby, you really scare me
Got me so nervous, but I ain’t worried
Fire and ice, snow and rain
I can’t wait to see you again

By bus, by car, by boat, by plane
I can’t wait to see you again

I don’t care what I gotta spend
I can’t wait to see you again
Your house is only around the next bend
I can’t wait to see you again…
Track Name: Alex Lowe (Invincible)
Stealin’ the top of the world
it really can’t be easy
takin’ a bus to the next universe
believe me that’s easy
as reinventing the wheel
and learning to steer

Oh, we are not invincible, I know
just go ask Alex Lowe
oh, we are not invincible, I know
but he got pretty close

I got a place in the back of my head
I’d like to get there somehow
well I got a place that I’ve never been
I’d like to get in somehow
get there somehow

We got plenty of gas
our bags are all packed
you got the keys
well I got the map
a map of the stars

Oh, we are not invincible, I know
just go ask Alex Lowe
oh, we are not invincible, I know
but he got pretty close

Oh, we are not invincible, I know
just go ask Alex Lowe
oh, we are not invincible, I know
but he got pretty close
Track Name: This
Lately I’ve been holding on
to an unfamiliar song
that I picked right off a tree
that was growing from the ground

Each note written on a leaf
they was fallin’ all around
verses came right through the bark
big and beautiful and dark
I can get used to this
I can get used to this

Many lives through I have roamed
at least that’s what I’ve been told
even whoring out my soul
just to find a perfect chord

And a simple kind of beat,
yes a simple kind of beat
that will knock you off your feet
and make you say
I can get used to this
I can get used to this

Lately I’ve been holding on
to an unfamiliar song
that I picked right off a tree
that was growing from the ground

Each note written on a leaf
they was fallin’ all around
verses came right through the bark
big and beautiful and dark
I can get used to this
I can get used to this
I can get used to this
Track Name: Good Times In Lucky Town
We arrived as the summer sun 
beat down on out busy heads
Lazy as it seems 
we was running out of steam
With the big amber moon overhead

Do that crazy backflip 
it makes me laugh
I love it when you’re 
spinning in the air
Then I’ll try a handstand 
and tumble to the ground
We got good times in Lucky Town

There goes my little boy 
he’s swimmin’ in the bath, 
naked as he can be
There goes your daughter 
she’s runnin’ cross the grass
That’s the way it always should be

And I’m gonna be a bizzillionaire, then we’ll really have fun
So roll another fat one 
and pass it around
We got good times in Lucky Town

Summer skies start to fade, 
I don’t mind
‘Cause I’m up in the morning 
with that first bird song
She takes her time to wake
She likes her tea 
with honey and cream;
I like my coffee with cake

I got me some good advice
Like “Keep it all positive”
Once you understand this 
it will increase your chances for
Good times in Lucky Town

Summer skies start to fade, 
And come back around
Once you understand this 
it will increase your chances for
Good times in Lucky Town

Summer skies start to fade, 
And come back around
Good times in Lucky Town... 
Good times in Lucky Town ...
Good times in Lucky Town ...
Track Name: Rolling
Must have been a mist in the valley
Left over from a dream
Circles of the rain smoke
Filters through the trees

Hey, hey, it’s all right
Hey, hey, it’s Okay
Hey, hey, why don’t you
Dance for me in the moonlight
Take me in your arms
Stroll me down the fairway
Be my only hole in one

Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ on

Find me a little shady grove
In the silver of the moon
Pluck me a little melody
To the echoes of the lune

Hey, hey, it’s all right
Hey, hey, it’s Okay
Hey, hey, why don’t you
Dance for me in the moonlight
Take me in your arms
Stroll me down the fairway
Be my only hole in one

Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ on
Track Name: Shadows In The Cypress
You’re gonna lose your Annie 
down in New Orleans
You’re gonna lose your Annie 
down in New Orleans
They got that voodoo swamp grass
growing like you’ve never seen

Fools Back Road, 
don’t walk me away
Fools Back Road, 
don’t walk me away
Got them shadows in the cypress
Got me runnin’ scared

But I’m gonna sleep 
with the tombstones tonight,
and walk back down the bayou 
in the early morning light
Then I’ll head back to the Quarter for whatever it is worth
I’ll find my little Annie 
and head back north

Old black muddy water 
trying to drink my blood
Old black muddy water 
trying to drink my blood
Get in deeper and wider
She’s about to flood

Crazy wild demons tryin’ 
to run me down 
Crazy wild demons tryin’ 
to run me down
They say anyone who dies here won’t stay underground
They say anyone who dies here won’t stay underground

But I’m gonna sleep 
with the tombstones tonight,
and walk back down the bayou 
in the early morning light
Then I’ll head back to the Quarter for whatever it is worth
I’ll find my little Annie

But I’m gonna sleep 
with the tombstones tonight,
and walk back down the bayou 
in the early morning light
Then I’ll head back to the Quarter for whatever it is worth
I’ll find my little Annie 
and head back north
Track Name: Random Song
I’ve been away from home
for awhile I’ve so it seems
So it seems, I’ve been away
from my home, for a while
I just had a thought, now it’s gone
I’m wishin’ that I wrote it down
But this is just a random song

My friends they’re tellin’ me
that I need some more songs
My songs they’re tellin’ me, 
that I need more friends
I wake up to find a brand new day
I’m hopin’ that it won’t take too long
before I find that random song

My back is killin’ me, 
but my mind is free
My mind is free, 
but my back is killin’ me
Wishin and a wonderin’ all the time
And I’m hopin’ that nothin’ else
can go wrong
And I’ll find that random song

My baby so good to me;
I do believe she’ll always be
My baby so good to me;
I believe she’ll always be
She’s the only one 
who takes my blues away
She comes over 
when it’s that time of day
We listen to them random songs play
Track Name: Wings
Did you know the clouds
all come through here?
Makes observation tricky to the mind
As for my heart, delivers me tears
Did you know the clouds
all come through here?

So lift me up, lift me up
I’ve had enough
Lift me up, lift me up
I’ve had enough

Did you know the wind has wings?
‘Cause transportation is a heavy thing
Watch it blow, hear it sing
Did you know the wind has wings?

So lift me up, lift me up
I’ve had enough
Lift me up, lift me up
I’ve had enough

They say the rain the rain 
laughs out loud
‘Cause intuition it’s easy to doubt
Ain’t it funny how things get 
turned around
That’s why the rain, the rain 
laughs out loud

So lift me up, lift me up
I’ve had enough
Lift me up, lift me up
I’ve had enough
Lift me up, let me up
I’ve had enough
Track Name: The Movie
The rain, it was fallin 
and it stung like razorblades
And the sky was exploding 
miles overhead
I was swallowed by the canyons
way down low
The occurrence at
Owl Creek Bridge
shifts to Angel’s Casino

All I got is in my pockets 
stuffed in my socks It’s a lot
As for my friends, they all hate me 
they’re pushing daisies, 
so they can’t blame me
Except for one, I can see her 
getting nearer in the fog
She tries to speak 
but I can’t hear her
So unclear

Think I’ll make a move
out of Nevada
Like to be closer to the water
The dry air here
keeps it secrets mummified
I hope they let me
back to California
Or maybe Oregon
that’s where she is
I heard she’s gone to Oregon ...

As the sky turns to purple
Hell's roof starts to cool
Don’t the stars look like keyholes up to heaven shinin’ through?

I heard her say “I’ll keep your secret, it’s the least that I can do
But I swear that I won’t sit through the bad movie they’ll make of you”

She said “I swear that I won’t sit through the bad movie they’ll make of you”

She said “I swear not to sit through the bad movie they’ll make of you”
Track Name: Somewhereville
A million miles have blown 
down the road
Tryin’ to beat that rollin’ storm
I have found it to be so cold
Just to roam

So I catch another wave, a new day
A road to pave away
I’d surely stay but I ain’t made
To lead this parade

Amazingly, I got all that I need
I got enough I can spread it all around
Apparently, the eccentricities
Tend to surface once you settle down
And the tragedy of familiarity
Tends to breed a notion to leave home
Just to roam

There’s voices in this room 
comin’ through
Tryin’ to tell me just what to do
Be with you, be aloof, or find someone new

Amazingly, I got all that I need
I got enough I can spread it all around
Apparently, the eccentricities
Tend to surface once you settle down
And the tragedy of familiarity
Tends to breed a notion to leave home
Just to roam

Well, I’m finally windin’ down in a town
With my feet on solid ground
Along a trail, with time to kill
In Somewhereville
