    Our Latest and Greatest. Nine songs written over the past 3 years.

    “...the nine tracks on Silver Lining cohere organically while donning their cap at different regional influences, calling to mind everything from voluptuous Strangers Almanac-Whiskeytown to 6-String Drag spit-and-grit” Charlotte Viewpoint

    “…a classic country-rock effort built on lonesome pedal steel, earnest delivery, shuffles and waltzes with complementary guitar picking that adds color and texture with echoes of Drive-By Truckers, Ryan Adams, and Fleetwood Mac.” Courtney Devores, Charlotte Observer

    “Their latest is a collection of toe-tapping, foot stomping twang that will have any listener bobbing their head midway through the chorus. Their ability to blend each individual style – never letting one outshine the other – is alive and well…” Kelli Raulerson, CLTure.org

    “Pullman Strike is a sextet bringing you a wonderful mash up of indie, stoner rock and Americana. Their latest album features heartfelt love songs alongside gut-wrenching melodies about loss and loneliness” Jenny Lou Bennett, Shutter 16

Track Name: Easy Lyin'
Where have you been?
This town ain't what it was, since you left.
And I can't walk the streets and not see you
by my side, holding on.

Where might you have been?
I saw you standing on the road with him-
and I could of cried out,
but it would have been a worthless cry

Easy Lyin.
It's easy lyin to you.

Holding on, Holding on to pasts I've known
I'd be telling a lie if I said that I had no regrets

Where might I have been?
I was hiding out in the basement
wasting all my precious time
it was always such a worthless lie

Easy Lyin.
It's Easy Lyin
It's easy lyin to you.
Track Name: Get Loud
Well I don't know about you,
but it's the waiting around that burns me out
It seems that every sound I make comes out a little too loud

Too loud to say

Well you said it yourself
There's nothing gold in me
not even a silver lining

I'm just mad at the all the suits and ties
it's the power struggle that I despise

Let's get loud
Let's get loud tonight

We should be out on the sea, floating freely
If we're all tied down what's the point in dreaming?

Let's get loud
Let's get loud tonight!

Well there's nothing wrong with me
I don't believe the things you think
I don't need your eyes to say
I float by so freely, let's get loud

Let's get loud tonight!
Track Name: Son of a Public Servant
I wish you could see things differently
you're just like our father, your mind's always on yourself
think about someone else.

he gave you what you need
and a big ole house
and left me wondering how I drove him away
at such a young age

I always knew you'd follow in his foot steps
with a suit and tie trading money for lies

An illegitimate kid by a poor young girl
who grew up and showed me the world
said "watch out for those like your father"

He erased all the legal proof to hide his sin from the world
to keep that government job from slipping away, he'll do whatever it takes

At least my mother taught me things a father should have,
because I'm too much of a man to bring his sin to the light of day.

We're brothers, you see.
But we're not the same.
You were prized and chosen, I was cast away

But I got all I need, I don't need yours or his sympathy
I make an honest living without that government money

So tell daddy when you see him that it's a loosely held name
that I sleep just fine leading a true mans life
oh yea, i sleep just fine leading a true mans life
Track Name: Time
Time goes by slowly
all these creeping clocks, they tick and tock
and the minutes dance into days
Time moves so slowly
The day stops and the room gets quiet
minute by minute i wait for the chime
loneliness lives by a watch as the days turn into years
loneliness but keep your eyes on the clock untill all your time is gone

So much time has passed right by me
but it don't just pass by it slithers over your shoes
while you sit and try and watch that hour hand move

loneliness lives by a watch as the days turn into years
loneliness has me watching the kitchen clock until all my time disappears
Track Name: Suitcase
The sun sets at dinner time the ghosts come out to play
You wrestle with the crippling thoughts of yesterday

What kind of a man do you make of this who do you think he'd be
To put you out with the butt of his heel and not even feel a thing

With your nails cracked and bloody you're reaching for the side
Of this tangled web of thoughts this war you call your mind

But you don't know you're a pawn
In this game of keeping you right where you think you belong

That was all a lie you believed
I don't ever want to see you leave
So take your time and come back on your own
I'll be right where I was

If my hair was gold and my eyes were a lighter shade of blue
I think I'd have a better chance of being known
I'd be a shoe-in for getting some love from you

Tonight I'm leaving and I don't know why
With a suitcase full of nothing, but hand-fulls of time
Well a many a man would search his soul out on this lonesome road
But tonight I'm driving for driving's sake with nowhere to go

That was all a lie you believed
I don't ever want to see you leave
So take your time and come back on your own
I'll be right where I was
Track Name: It Ain't Yet (My Time)
Not sure where we should go throw a dart at the map
I'll roll us a couple of smokes and we'll burn them down
There's nothing worse than hiding from the sunshine
Stand up tall, what are you so afraid of

High on society to give us wings to fly
My friends pills you share will leave you mute and blind
It ain't yet my time to find a home.

There you were hanging out on the other side of town
Your new friends they don't come around
Nothings worse than hiding from the sunshine
Stand up tall, what are you so afraid of?

High on society to give us wings to fly
My friends pills you share will leave you mute and blind
It ain't yet my time to find a home

I was waiting on you to come back around
but you disappeared to another town
Nothings worse than hiding from the sunshine
Stand up tall, what are you so afraid of?

High on society to give us wings to fly
My friends pills you share they'll leave you mute and blind
It ain't yet my time.
Track Name: Tounge Tied
Tongue tied at the moment, can't seem to recall
What was said that evening, who was on the phone

There's a man on the corner, says he comes here a lot
To see the important people, as they vie for a spot

Going back to the start now, this time it's me
Who's gonna wanna come and level with you baby
Yeah and make it all clean

Now there's talking of leaving, going to try and jump town
They say we're damned if we don't, well I don't wanna find out

Looking back to see where we started
Where we've come, where we're headed for
All this time that you thought was wasted, turns out it's not

You can't understand all this running just because it never led you home
Well this time it's a breeze don't you worry, just take it from me.
Track Name: Friend
Running over different plans I had, all the big ones fell through
you were hanging on to me, but I had nothing left for you.
Pictures of our time together sit atop my dresser
next to my last couple of dollars and eviction letter

My sweet sweet friend, how I wish I could love you back
My long long lost friend, how I miss the time we had.

Now i sit in this mill-workers home, watching the rain fall of the porch
I swear I can still hear you saying I love you more
And I tried to stick around like a true lover should
but babe, I had to get going, you know I've always been misunderstood.

My sweet sweet friend, how I wish I could love you back
My long long lost friend, how I miss the time we had.
Track Name: (You Don't Have To ) Come Home
Looking forward to finding you a thousand miles from home
With your hair up in a mess, your stuff packed up in boxes

You're broke and tired, no money wired, your mama hasn't called
I think it's time that you come home

I don't know why you had to go and play with my heart
Treating it like it's going to be there no matter what

I'm just as tired, I can't get hired, I'm feeling all alone
Won't you hop this plane to Charlotte and come home

You and I look good side by side
And all you can do is look the other way
But I did try to mend this broken life
And it made a good man out of me

You came you went you swore that there was nothing like it
But you didn't wait to see
'cause time will tell, you don't have to come home darlin'
But you do have to call home

You came you went you swore that there was nothing like it
But you didn't wait to see
'cause time will tell, you don't have to call me darlin'

But you do have to call home
