about

Thanks to the urgings of Luke Jorgensen for our band to record an album and the kindness of Phil & Carol Rachuj, Old Soul Society converted a beautiful old farmhouse in Wonewoc, WI into a makeshift studio and for an extended weekend in late 2015, we set out to record a live a album that would hopefully capture the essence of Old Soul Society’s uniquely rich, warm & authentic sound.

Old Soul Society - The Farmhouse Sessions is a testament to the power of people working together toward a common cause. The amount of collaborative effort that went into taking these songs from the notebook to The Farmhouse, to Deerwood, to the Mystery Room, to our van and finally to your hands is nothing short of a miracle.

We are honored and enlightened to be included in the collective consciousness of so many talented & generous people.
Without each of you lending your positive energies and pulling for us, this album would not have been possible.

Thank you so very much for supporting original music!

- Old Soul Society

Track Name: Carolina
When I get to Carolina
I'm gonna set my eyes to sea
I'm gonna stare out for miles
and play it over in my mind
Just seeing if I can find me some peace

Had to get out of Wisconsin
On that wagon gonna find my way
And the good Lord be thanked
Anything to let go of that drink
Just seeing if I can find me some peace

But oh oh oh I've got a feelin'
This road will take me back someday
Oh oh oh I've got a feelin'
It won't be long till you see me coming your way

Sitting in New Mexico
About an hour from the sun
Dippin skinny in a hole
with some people that I don't know
But we're all just trying to find us some peace

When I get to California
I'm gonna dig my toes right in
Sipping wine straight from the vine
Breathe in, rejoice and just stay kind
Seeing if I could find me some peace

But oh oh oh I've got a feelin'
This road will take me back someday
Oh oh oh I've got a feelin'
It won't be long till you see me coming your way

When I get to Carolina
I'm gonna set my eyes to sea
I'm gonna stare out for miles
and play it over in my mind
Just seeing if I can find me some peace
Track Name: Starry Night
It must be something on the passing wind
The whisper in my ear or the brush to my skin
The way she can move me and leave me alright
My should is soothed on this starry night

Resting here under the sky
Thoughts of you would keep my eyes wide
As I hum this tune the moon shines so bright
And my soul is soothed on this starry night

All I'm saying, I was so alone yesterday
Then you came along and everything was alright
Oh my God, could this be a dream
on this starry night
Track Name: Talking In My Sleep
I was in love with all of my heart
and nothing in the world could ever tear us apart
Nothing 'cept the pills and the ills they bring
I found her clinging onto life on the fire escape

She said, "I've got to get to heaven. Man, I just can't wait
Enough is enough. I've had all that I can take"
I guess what I called love wasn't good enough
It feels like Heaven's just a box with some dirt on top

I've been talking in my sleep
I've been lying to my own dreams
It's a little bit harder than it seems
To let you go when you still gotta hold on me

I went down to Austin trying to clear my mind
Looking for some love or whatever I could find
And I found it in a bottle down at Darwin's on 6th
But now every night I love myself another 1/5

I've been talkin in my sleep
I've been lyin to my own dreams
It's a little bit harder than it seems
To let you go when you still gotta hold on me

I was in love with all of my heart
nothing in the world could ever tear us apart
I guess what I called love wasn't good enough
and it feels like Heaven's just a box with some dirt on top
Track Name: Hurricane Heart
My head is like a hurricane, my heart is like an anchor
Pulsing, pounding through my veins oil it slowly takes me under
Come on, hurry with the novocaine, I can feel the danger
My head is like a hurricane, my heart is like an anchor

We all get lost from time to time
But I just can't seem to get you off my mind
The I get tossed to the side
And I just don't think I'll get no sleep tonight

My head is like a hurricane, my heart is like an anchor
Pulsing, pounding through my veins oil it slowly takes me under
Come on, hurry with the novocaine, I can feel the danger
My head is like a hurricane, my heart is like an anchor

The thunder cracks every time I close my eyes
And these waves keep crashing down inside my mind
You're lightning. You're fog. You keep me blind
But it's sinking in that you're gone for good this time

My head is like a hurricane, my heart is like an anchor
Pulsing, pounding through my veins oil it slowly takes me under
Come on, hurry with the novocaine, I can feel the danger
My head is like a hurricane, my heart is like an anchor
Track Name: Kaya's Song
I didn't mean to be a player
In this vicious game
I'm scared of meeting with my maker
Pray He'll have mercy on me

And I'm dying to make you see somehow
and I'm crying because I don't know just how
Oh my God, I could use your help right now

Everyone thinks that we're winning
Because that's just what they say
No on knows that we're just sinning
While it happens everyday

And I'm dying to get through to you now
I'm crying because I don't know just how
Oh my God, I could use your help right now
Track Name: Shake The Blues Away
What about this Earth
What about the Moon
What about this girl
Lying here in my room

What about the stars
What about the ocean
What about the waves (of love)
Can't you feel it moving

Everybody move with me
Groove with me all night
C'mon and get on up and get down
Get on out of sight
Everyone just move with me
Groove with me all night
Til the sunlight shines it's face
We'll shake them blues away

See all of my friends
Keep trying to tell me
All about these things
That I don't seem to see
It's all about this Love
It's all around me
Open up your eyes
Ain't no way you can't see

So won't you move with me
Groove with me all night
C'mon and get on up and get down
Get on out of sight
Everyone just move with me
Groove with me all night
Til the sunlight shines it's face
We'll shake them blues away
Track Name: Way Back When
Kept on waiting for you to call me
But I must have been waiting just a little too long
And now you must have changed your number
Because it just don't right the same

Honestly what the hell was I thinking
Truth be told, I was doing a little bit of drinking
And I just had to find out
If you sometimes think of me

Well it's been so long since I've seen your face
And I just had to see it again
Now I pray to God that you don't get away
Like I let you do way back then

Keep on thinking about the first time I saw you
I stood there blinking, there was nothing I could do
I was so entranced by you
And nothing's ever changed

Well it's been so long since I've seen your face
And I just had to see it again
Now I pray to God that you don't get away
Like I let you do way back then
Track Name: Say It
I love your moves
and all of the things that you do
Lord, how I run through my day
Just to get home to you

I love your smile
and all the things that you say
Lord, how they run through my head
And never lead me astray

Oh and I know
Cherish your time
But it just keeps flying by
And tell me when did we get so old
So caught up in the grind
That we never take the time
Just to let anybody know
Well, it's not right
Because overtime I hold you
I never want to let you go
And it's about time that I say it
And pray that I'm not too late

Since the first time I saw you
Since the first day we met
Try as I might,
I just can't get you out of my head
And I've been telling everybody
Even people I don't know
But it'll never do anybody good
If I never say it to you

Oh and I know
Cherish your time
But it just keeps flying by
And tell me when did we get so old
So caught up in the grind
That we never take the time
Just to let anybody know
Well, it's not right
Because overtime I hold you
I never want to let you go
And it's about time that I say it
And pray that I'm not too late
Track Name: You Know You Are
I left you in a bottle at the bar
With every step seems like everything's getting harder
And I know you'd like to think it won't leave a scar
But oh, you know that you are

I left you in a battle of the heart
Kicked your ass and left you from the start
And I know you'd like to think you're not falling apart
But oh, you know you are

You'd never let them wrap those chains around your heart
Been down this road so far so many times before
And I know you'd like to think it won't leave a scar
But oh, you know you are
Track Name: In My Eyes
In my time
I've heard a thousand words
I've heard a thousand lies

In my life
I've watched the world burn
I've seen you turn your eyes

In my eyes
I hold an old man's tears
I've seen the babies cry

And now I realize
I pray we'll make it soon
I pray it overnight

You hold me, release me
you just tell me everything's just fine
As you shove me and deceive me
I sit and shake all through the night
You Love me then leave
While you tell everything's alright
You hold me, release me
Oh God, I've got to make it through this night
