about

Westfall Mountain is Bob Westfall (guitar, harmonica, vocals) and Mike Mountain (guitar and vocals). Bob sings the songs he writes, and Mike sings the songs he writes. This particular album features Brandon Williams on mandolin.

This entire album was recorded live in a basement in North Delta, BC, on June 30, 2012. It's an organic and natural recording; no auto tune and no click tracks. It's just three buzzed guys sitting in a circle and playing songs together with microphones in front of them. Plenty of beers and a couple of pizzas made their way downstairs throughout the recording process. Bass and banjo overdubs were recorded by Bob a few days after the basic tracks were captured. The album was mastered by Neil Lambertsen in Vancouver.

Both Bob and Mike have solo albums of their own songs.

Westfall Mountain hopes you will enjoy the unpolished acoustic feel of their debut album. Their sophomore album will be released by the end of 2019. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears unlocked. Viva Westfall Mountain!

Track Name: Down South (Mountain)
DOWN SOUTH
Well, they asked me, "Where's your woman?"
I said, "She went down South"
Things had got a little cold 'round here
So she went down South
Then they asked me, "Where you going?"
I said, "I'm heading down South."
See, me lover, she went away
And we still had a few more words to say.

Down South where I will find the sun
I'm going South 'cause she's the only one
Down South where I'll find the warm blue ocean
Looking for the girl with the love potion

Got a call a few hours ago
And I still have many more miles to get down South
Now I know love is a guarantee
My woman's warmed up, she's waiting for me down South

Down South where I will find the sun
I'm going South 'cause she's the only one
Down South where I'll find the warm blue ocean
Looking for the girl with the love potion

Track Name: Boot Hill Blues (Westfall)
BOOT HILL BLUES
I'm going to Tombstone, baby, Tombstone here I come
Tombstone, baby, Tombstone here I come
I've got a Colt 45 and an empty bottle of rum

Gonna be a gunfight, baby, at the O.K. Corral
Gunfight, baby, at the O.K. Corral
I ain't missing it for nothing, no way, no how

They say all gunfighters live in fear of the end
All gunfighters live in fear of the end
They die without a dime, a woman, or a friend

Boot Hill, baby, Boot Hill's the end of the line
Boot Hill, baby, Boot Hill's the end of the line
It's them or me, and I don't feel like dying

Tombstone, baby, Tombstone here I come
Tombstone, baby, here I come
I've got a Colt 45 and an empty bottle of rum

Track Name: I Sit Alone (Mountain)
I SIT ALONE
I sit alone, all by myself, thinking 'bout life, thinking 'bout you
I sit alone with a cool, cool buzz, thinking 'bout living
And what I'm gonna do

I know things will go on the same way if you let em'
So why not seize the day, get busy livin', busy lovin'
No time for pushin', no time for shovin', no no no

I sit alone, I sit alone
But I got it all figured out
I sit alone, I sit alone
But I got it all figured out

They say action speaks louder than words
I speak your language, the language of love
I'm weighing options and calling your name
'Cause I don't always wanna play that game, no no

I sit alone, I sit alone
But I got it all figured out
I sit alone, I sit alone
But I got it all figured out

Track Name: Talkin' Crumb Gobbler Blues (Westfall)
TALKIN' CRUMB GOBBLER BLUES
I was driving West on Texas 71
Burning up the Lexus in the Texas sun
An hour from Austin, the day near done
I saw a sign that said, "Cold Beer Sold Here."

I figured, what's a fella to do
Thought I'd stop and have a brew
Found a table at Peter's BBQ
Across from Handsome Molly and her mother, so dear.

Handsome Molly got married last summer
There she sat, saying, "What a bummer..
30 years old and not getting any younger"
She said, "If I wanna have a baby, now's the time to do it."

She was sitting there chopping up a plumb cobbler
Talkin' 'bout' popping out a crumb gobbler
Dreaming of cleaning up toddler slobber
She said, "I've got a husband, and I know how to use it."

Handsome Molly was quite the looker
She would have made a mighty fine hooker
If she wasn't tied down, I'd have took her
For a long joyride in my Lexus.

It was then I remembered I was in the Bible Belt
That caused my smile to melt
For if Molly knew what was on my mind, well
She'd probably call me a sexist swine

Hell, with thoughts like mine, I just can't win
Every thought in my mind's a genuine sin
There's no use lying. I might as well begin
To walk the path of the Heavenly Father

Maybe then I'd get a woman like Molly
Twice as handsome and three times jolly
With a little luck, me and Pretty Polly
We'd have ourselves seven crumb gobblers.

I was driving West on Texas 71
Burning up the Lexus in the Texas sun
An hour from Austin, the day near done
I saw a sign that said, "Cold Beer Sold Here."

Track Name: Welcome Back (Mountain)
WELCOME BACK
Well, I woke up this morning
What did I see?
An image from the past looking back at me
I said, "Hey, where you been for the last five years?"
"Drownin' myself in women and beer."

But I'm back. I'm back to stay
Darkness has faded and there's a new light today
But I'm back. I'm back to stay
Darkness has faded and there's a new light today

I lost my confidence, I lost my cool
I nearly lost my life and I was such a fool
Forgetting what I had was the only disease
But I fought off my confusion, I'm feeling at ease

But I'm back. I'm back to stay
Darkness has faded and there's a new light today
But I'm back. I'm back to stay
Darkness has faded and there's a new light today

Track Name: Two Or Three Blues (Westfall)
2 OR 3 BLUES
If I run around with other pretty girls
If I untie their pretty little curls
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It just means I wanna be free to have me two or three
It doesn't mean that I don't love you

If your buddy Steve sees me on the drive
If he tells you, tell him I say "hi"
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It just means I wanna be free to have me two or three
It doesn't mean that I don't love you

Well, if you get mad and say you're gonna leave
That's alright with me, I've got some tricks up my sleeve
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It doesn't mean that I don't love you
It just means I wanna be free to have me two or three
It doesn't mean that I don't love you

Track Name: The Hobo Song (Westfall)
THE HOBO SONG
How I'd love to be a hobo and live in a shack
A little run-down shanty by an old railroad track
The rumble of a midnight train to rock me as I dream
Asleep by the light of a silvery moonbeam
I'd forsake everything I own to travel this land
Harmonica in my pocket and a guitar in my hand

How I'd love to be a hobo and bum on down the line
Spending what I ain't got on women and wine
Playing my hand in poker games, dealing stud
Passing out and waking up face down in the mud
I'd forsake everything I own to travel this land
Harmonica in my pocket and a guitar in my hand

How I'd love to be a hobo and live by my own rules
I wouldn't answer to anyone or be nobody's fool
To feel the ground beneath my feet, knowing that I'm free
To walk the walk and talk the talk sounds alright by me
I'd forsake everything I own to travel this land
Harmonica in my pocket and a guitar in my hand

How I'd love to be a hobo, a real rambling man
Got no interest, ain't my business being a family man
I'd be drifting 'round singing the hobo's lullaby
'Till the day I climb aboard that freight train in the sky
I'd forsake everything I own to travel this land
Harmonica in my pocket and a guitar in my hand

Track Name: Lost In My Mind (Mountain)
LOST IN MY MIND
I've been lost in my mind for a while
I've been lost in my mind
Thinking 'bout the days gone by with a smile
I've been lost in my mind

I've been thinking 'bout my life for a time
Friends and family and a song full of rhyme
Got a lover and I'm sure to discover
There will be no other, everything is so sublime

These lyrics woke me up and I had to write them down
Sometimes I wonder whey they keep on coming around
Is it a gift or curse? I guess it could be much, much worse
I will keep on writing 'til I end up in a hearse

I've been lost in my mind for a while
I've been lost in my mind
Thinking 'bout the days gone by with a smile
I've been lost in my mind

Track Name: Meet Me In Texas (Westfall)
MEET ME IN TEXAS
Meet me in Texas in the middle of May
I'll be in Houston, counting the days
Until, my love, we're together again
And our lonely hearts can at last mend

Too gone too long is no way to be
It's hard for love to grow with an ocean between
You in your world, me in mine
We keep trying to make our love light shine

Maybe too much time has passed
Maybe I've been living too fast
Maybe I did not try enough
Now I'm in Texas, blue as the sky above
Now I'm in Texas, blue as the sky above

Track Name: The Kid (Mountain)
THE KID
Let me tell you a story
About a crazy kid and what he wanted to do
He never listened, baby, he'd do the crazy things he'd do

You see he wants to find a lover unlike any other
But he was quick to discover that to find another lover
Wouldn't prove too kind

He needed help from the man in the sky
But he just couldn't reach that high
Trail was dark and he wanted to see
He said, "Show me a light and won't you please guide me?
Oh, you've got to guide me."

He started to carry out his searching
He searched all night and day
To find a lover he could call his own
He'd be a king, though he don't have a thrown
There's got to be a better way if he has something to say
But he was quick to discover that to find a better way
Wouldn't prove too kind

He needed help from the man in the sky
But he just couldn't reach that high
Trail was dark and he wanted to see
He said, "Show me a light and won't you please guide me?
Oh, you've got to guide me."

And then one day it happened
Love, it walked his way
Sometimes you'll find if you open your mind
Love will come to stay

He needed help from the man in the sky
But he just couldn't reach that high
Trail was dark and he wanted to see
He said, "Show me a light and won't you please guide me?
Oh, you've got to guide me."

Track Name: Sail Away With Me (Westfall)
SAIL AWAY WITH ME
There is freedom on the ocean
There is freedom on the open sea
Tell me baby, will you sail away with me?

Into the great wide open
To the great wide ocean
There's room for you in my paradise for two

Feel the breeze blowing, feel freedom flowing
Deep down you're knowing this was meant to be
We'll be midnight moonlight dancing, lovers romancing
If you take a chance and sail away with me

There is freedom on the ocean
There is freedom on the open sea
Tell me baby, will you sail away with me?
