Behind the song: 43 Days  

There is a long running joke that has been told during the introduction of this song at performances, and it goes, "Here's a song I wrote about going to jail, while being in jail." 

'43 Days' the opening track to our EP- Church or a Bar, is a throw back to the sounds of 80s country band, Alabama. With stellar harmonies, thundering drums and soaring guitars. 

The chorus belts "43 Days in this lock down. And when I get out, I'm gonna paint the town. Find me a juke joint and burn it down to the ground. Believe me when I say, you're never gonna see me down, ain't never gonna see me down." 

'43 Days' paints a movie in your mind of a guy who makes some bad decisions one night while out to a liquor store for a "6er of cans, when a pretty girl with a loaded gun, said to give me everything my friend - give me EVERYTHING my friend".

43 Days (B. Grillet) 4:36

43 Days in this lock down • When I get out I'm gonna paint the town • Find me a juke joint and burn it down to the ground • Believe me when I say you're never see me down • You're never gonna see me down • Now let me tell you how it began • I was just a good timing man • So I stopped down to the liquor store for a sixer of cans • When a pretty girl with a loaded gun said give me everything my friend • Give me everything my friend • 43 Days in the lock down • When I get out I'm gonna paint the town • Find me a juke joint and burn it down to the ground • Believe me when I say you're never gonna see me down • You're never gonna see me down • Now this is where the fun kicked in • Shacked up at a Holiday Inn • Sheriff came crashing in with a warrant in hand • He said there's only one way it's gonna go • You'd better come with me my friend • You better come with me my friend • 43 Days in this lock down • When I get out I'm gonna paint the town • When I get out I'm gonna paint the town • Find me a juke joint and burn it down to the ground • Believe me when I say you're never gonna see me down • Believe me when I say you're never gonna see me down • You ain't never gonna catch me down •
