About the artist

Dodd Ferrelle transitions from Sonic Americana to Indie Pop to straight up country on last year’s “Lonely Parades”. After years on the road with the Tinfoil Stars, Dodd went solo with his 2009 offering and is currently finishing up what will be his second and third solo studio records in a span of 2 years. The pop/rock album “Hide the World” will be released early 2011 and the more acoustic album “Sucker Punch Town” will be released shortly thereafter. His band features Noel and David Blackmon, Jon Mills, David Vanwyk, Tim Adams and Brad Fowler. http://www.doddferrelle.com/

"Ferrelle captures a familiar American rock sound yet manages to convey the mood of the times. His guitar playing is admirable, his talent obvious and as distinctive as his voice." - David Harry, AMERICANA UK

"Ferrelle and his band are the most promising roots-based rock act from the Athens area since the Drive By Truckers."
Greg Nicoll, CREATIVE LOAFING

"Weaned on the Beatles, the Replacements and the Waterboys, Athens' Dodd Ferrelle may not yet have the resume of his musical heroes, but he has the passion and talent to make even the most accomplished musician take notice."
Alex Green, AMPLIFIER MAGAZINE

Lyrics

Oh, to get a seat on the next airplane
Flyin' high out of this world
Make my ticket and then call me at the gate
Flyin' high out of this world

doo doo doo

You control me
You bought and sold me
doo doo doo
For that feeling you had me stealing

Buried treasure layin' underneath your feet
Pick it up and you may die
It makes no difference that their words they never keep
It's all deceit no reasoned life

doo doo doo

You control it
You bought and sold it
doo doo doo
For that feeling you had 'em stealin'

Secret agents make their way now to your door
They're on the take they need the score
Soul confusion rises up in thunderstorms
So run for cover you've been warned

doo doo doo

You control it
You bought and sold it
doo doo doo
For that feeling you've got 'em stealin'

Pay the devil for a lifetime of bad debt
Pray for grace and leave regret
Control is in the heart of every man
Resolve redeems your head

doo doo doo

You control me
You bought and sold me
doo doo doo
For that feeling you had me stealing

doo doo doo

You control it
You bought and sold it
For that feeling you've got 'em stealing
