    "It’s hard not to picture The Grateful Dead as the graven image of the J Burn experience—Burnt Blue was recorded at Bob Weir’s storied TRI Studios, after all—but it may be more accurate to describe J Burn as a folksy, San Francisco version of Lynyrd Skynyrd. In Burnt Blue, Burn has shed the psychedelic tones and instead focused his lyrics on bucolic imagery and earthly imaginings of the quotidian. He sings of trains, yesterdays and dusty trails in what could be construed as a hippie riff on the Southern experience." -MacEagon Voyce - AXS Contributor - Sep 24, 2015

Track Name: Freight Train
(First Verse)
Freight Train, oh freight train, rolling down the tracks
Don’t know where you’re going or when you’re coming back
None of that concerns me, I just need to go
Gather my belongings and head on down that road

(Chorus)
You know the futures wide open and its time I move along
Cause things ain’t a working and a broken heart is hard
Oh freight train, oh freight train, may your course be true
You know I don’t care where you’re going, I’m gonna leave it up to you

(Second Verse)
Pretty Penny was the girl who will always own my heart
She left me at the altar, dressed to play the part
I don’t know where she’s gotten to but I know she’s runnin’ free
Me I’m broken hearted, for all our friends to see

(Chorus)
You know the futures wide open and its time I move along
Cause things ain’t a working here and a broken heart is hard
Oh freight train, oh freight train, roll on down the line
And free me from these memories, will leave my past behind

(Out)
With two bits in my pocket and a satchel that holds my world
A lunch, I got from a mission, the open roads my home
Oh freight train, oh freight train, my your course be true
I don’t care where you’re going, I’m gonna leave it all to you
You know I don’t care where you’re going, gonna leave it up to you
Track Name: Memory Lane
(First Verse)
When I was just a little boy
Catchin fish down by the brook
Never seemed to question why
Had no need for second looks

(Second Verse)
Spent the days so careless and free
Wading in the water right up to my knees
Eating honeysuckle to my heart’s content
An pickin apples right from the tree

(Chorus)
An when I need to shake the blues
I take a trip down memory lane to you
Right to those golden day, golden day
Right back to the golden days, of my youth

(Third Verse)
Remember the first day I met you
You were sitting perched high up in a tree
Your long hair shimmering in the sun
A fiery red, blended in, with fall leaves

(Forth Verse)
We spent the whole day just running round
Laughing so hard and falling to the ground
Had no need to question why
So happy in the moment liven life on the fly

(Chorus)
So when I need to shake the blues
I take a trip down memory lane to you
Right to those golden day, golden day
Right back to the golden days, of my youth

(Fifth Verse)
An that day when the sun went down
There was no way we were heading home
We just laid in the tall grass starting at the stars
Wishing and a dreaming what the future may hold

(Sixth Verse)
So many days been spent
An now I’m old and grey
But you know I visit the child
Every time I wander down memory lane

(Out)
Right to those golden days. I’m headin’ for the golden days. Right back to the golden days of our youth. We always have the golden days. I’ll always cherish golden days. Thank god for the golden days of our youth.
Track Name: Old Time Heroes
(First Verse)
Hey Mr. can you play me a melody
Of some sweet forgotten tune
That reminds me, of a time, much simpler
When the band, always carried, perfect tune

(Chorus)
Days of heart broken hero’s
Who always saw the story end up fine
When I was still with you darling
Girl you’ve never escaped my heart or mind

(Second Verse)
So Mr. walk me through a memory
With that sweet, sweet tune
Doesn’t matter if your old voice is raspy
Cause the song always brings me to my youth

(Chorus)
Let’s raise a glass for forgotten hero’s
Who always stood for just and noble cause
Back in the day, when I was with my darling
Never forgot you, as days move on

(Third Verse)
So tune up that old guitar
An if that piano still plays on key
Keep the drum beat so steady
I’d sure appreciate you playin, that song for me

(Chorus)
When a war torn hero could raise his head up high
An praise and thanks always welcomed him home
When a man was judged by the seeds he had sown
That’s the place, that song plays now take me home

(Out)
That’s the place, that sweet song plays now, take me home
Track Name: Our Song Shared
(First Verse)
Way back in, eighty seven
We were tripping on down, that open road
Not a worry between us, as we made our way together
We were just cursing anyway, that wind did blow

(Chorus)
Back then freedom, wasn’t just a dream
We were livin simple and happy, well within our means
The road seemed endless. Right beneath our feet
With a love in our hearts, an a song shared, by just you an me

(Second Verse)
But you know some times, roads head off in different ways
Even when the weathers sweet, an the sun shines all them days
Somehow our path divided, to accomplish our own goals
We headed out, our own ways never again, to share that same road

(Chorus)
Back then freedom, it wasn’t just a dream
We were livin simple and happy, well within our means
The road seemed endless. Right beneath our feet
With a love in our hearts, an a song shared, by just you an me

(Third Verse)
You know now almost thirty years have, rolled on bye
Quick like rain drops evaporating, under sunny skies
Sometimes I catch myself wondering, how it might have been
If we never parted and we were, still walking hand and hand

(Chorus)
Back then freedom, it wasn’t just a dream
We were livin simple and happy, well within our means
The road seemed endless. Right beneath our feet
With a love in our hearts, an a song shared, by just you an me

(Out)
With a love in our hearts, an a song shared, by just you an me
