about

Infused with the sibling chemistry of Kyle Abbott (mandolin), Luke Abbott (guitar), and brother-from-another-mother Mason Hutchinson (bass), this trio delivers fresh interpretations of six classic songs, with cutting-edge “neo-vintage” arrangements and tight harmonies throughout.

about

The Abbott Brothers Santa Cruz, California

Mix together old-time brother duets from the mountains and good ol’ honky-tonk country songs, add in some blazing bluegrass- style solos and tight sibling harmonies, and you get an idea of what an Abbott Brothers show is like. The songs are fresh takes on time-tested gems of old. But beneath that new-band sheen lies a pair of brothers that have been intimately comfortable on stage for years. ... more

Track Name: Columbus Stockade Blues
Way down in Columbus, Georgia
Lord, I's wishin' I was back in Tennessee
Way down in that old Columbus Stockade
My friends all turned their backs on me

Go and leave me if you wish to
Never let it cross your mind
In your heart you love another
Leave me little darlin', I don't mind

[instrumental]

Many hours with you I've rambled
Honey, countless hours with you I've spent
Thought I had your heart forever
But I found it's only lent

Go and leave me if you wish to
Never let it cross your mind
In your heart you love another
Leave me little darlin', I don't mind

[instrumental]

Last night as I lay sleeping
I dreamt I was holding you in my arms
When I woke, I was mistaken
I was peeping through the bars

You can go and leave me if you wish to
Never let it cross your mind
In your heart you love another
Leave me little darlin', I don't mind

Lord, I've got the rambling blues
Track Name: Goin' Across the Mountain
I'm goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

I got my rifle on my back
My powder it is dry
Goin' across the mountain
Chrissie don't you cry

Goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

[instrumental]

Now way before it's good daylight
If nothing happens to me
I'll be way down yonder
In old Tennessee

I expect you'll miss me when I'm gone
But I'll be going through
When this war is over
I'll come back to you

Goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

[instrumental]

Goin' across the mountain
To join the boys in blue
When this war is over
I'll come back to you

Goin' across the mountain
If I have to crawl
To give ol' Jeff's men
Some of my rifle ball

Goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

I'm goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell
Track Name: Dixie Darling
Way down below the Mason Dixon line
Down where the honeysuckles are entwined
There's where the southern winds are blowing
There's where the daisies growing
The girls up north in their gay finery
Whirlin' around in the society
A-singing songs about my dixie darling
Where I long to be

My dixie darling, listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silver moon
With the banjo right in tune
My heart is ever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling, my dixie queen

[instrumental]

I'm a-goin' down south to have a big time
Gonna see my gal in old Caroline
I'll drink my booze and do as I please
For that gal I long to squeeze
And I'll be singing songs about my dixie darling
There's where I long to be going
Down where the jelly rolls a-rollin'
With my dixie queen

My dixie darling, listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silver moon
With the banjo right in tune
My heart is ever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling, my dixie queen

[instrumental]

My dixie darling, listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silver moon
With the banjo right in tune
My heart is ever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling, my dixie queen

My dixie darling, my dixie queen
Track Name: Lovesick Blues
I got a feelin' called the blues, oh Lord
Since my baby said goodbye
Lord I don't know what I'll do
All I do is sit and sigh, oh Lord
That last long day she said goodbye
Well Lord, I thought I would cry
She'd do me, she'd do you
She's got that kind of lovin'
Lord, I love to hear her
When she calls me sweet daddy

Such a beautiful dream
I hate to think it all over
I lost my heart it seems
I've grown so used to you somehow
Well I'm nobody's sugar daddy now
And I'm lonesome
I got the lovesick blues

I'm in love, I'm in love
With a beautiful gal
That's what's the matter with me
I'm in love, I'm in love
With a beautiful gal
But she don't care about me

Well I've tried and I've tried
To keep her satisfied
But she just wouldn't stay
So now that she is leavin'
This is all I say...

I got a feelin' called the blues, oh Lord
Since my baby said goodbye
Lord I don't know what I'll do
All I do is sit and sigh, oh Lord
That last long day she said goodbye
Well Lord, I thought I would cry
She'd do me, she'd do you
She's got that kind of lovin'
Lord, I love to hear her
When she calls me sweet daddy

Such a beautiful dream
I hate to think it all over
I lost my heart it seems
I've grown so used to you somehow
Well I'm nobody's sugar daddy now
And I'm lonesome
I got the lovesick blues

I'm lonesome
I got the lovesick blues

I'm lonesome
I got the lovesick blues
Track Name: Shady Grove
Cheeks as red as a blooming rose
And the eyes of the prettiest brown
She's the darling of my heart
The sweetest little girl in town

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm a-goin' away

[instrumental]

I went to see little Shady Grove
She was standing by the door
Her shoes and stockings in her hand
And her little bare feet on the floor

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm a-goin' away

[instrumental]

Peaches in the summer time
Apples in the fall
If I can’t have the girl I love
I won't have none at all

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm a-goin' away

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm a-goin' away
Track Name: Salty Dog
Standin on the corner with the low down blues
A great big hole in the bottom of my shoes
Honey let me be your salty dog

Let me be your salty dog
Or I don't wanna be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog

Now lookie here Sal, I know you
A run down stocking and a wore-out shoe
Honey let me be your salty dog

Let me be your salty dog
Or I don't wanna be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog

[instrumental]

I's down in the wildwood settin' on a log
Finger on my trigger and an eye on a hog
Honey let me be your salty dog

Let me be your salty dog
Or I don't wanna be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog

I pulled the trigger and the gun said go
Shot fell over in Mexico
Honey let me be you salty dog

Let me be your salty dog
Or I don't wanna be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog

[instrumental]

Let me be your salty dog
Or I don't wanna be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog

Let me be your salty dog
Or I don't wanna be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog
