Will Hatch New Hampshire

Will Hatch is a singer-songwriter from Hopkinton, New Hampshire. Illustrating a nuanced take on classic American themes, Hatch’s songs feature honest lyrics about heartbreak and loss, reality and desire. Despite his melancholic introspection, there is a silver lining. Spinning spider webs on guitar and banjo, his songs meld poetry with detailed finger picking. ... more

Track Name: Tenney Mt. Highway
Tenney mountain highway
Never been until today
Tenney mountain highway
Never felt so far away
Track Name: Oh Lord
Oh lord pick me up I need a lord to pick me up
Oh lord don’t let me be keep me out of misery
Oh lord oh lord pick me up

Oh brother if you only knew that I’m just like you
Maybe someday we’ll be at peace with our own realities
Oh lord oh lord pick me up

Somedays I’m low somedays I’m high but all it’s about is getting by
If I can only do that I’ll be happy not sad
Oh lord oh lord pick me up

Oh lord I fell asleep under a tree lord I fell asleep
I beg you don’t be mad at me keep me out of misery
Oh lord oh lord pick me up
Track Name: Hank
Hank you couldn’t finish it
And neither can I
Little did you know you were taking
You’re last ride

The people paid good money to see you
And little did they know that you had died
It was the first of the new year
And it would take, it’d take some time

They sang don’t you do us like you’ve done before
You were drinking and dragging falling out the door
You’d be in one town and out the next sleeping on the floor
Ah ooh ah ooh ah ooh

That Tennessee mountain music
Yeah it always hits the spot
But these boys down at the bar
They were laying it down hot

Jack said we got to go
16 hours to make our spot
Is there something else?
Or is this all I’ve got


Now stop at the doctors
I need me a shot
I just need some direction
I just need the pain to stop

Well hank got what he wanted
Yeah he got the pain to stop
But there was no more music
He had given all he got

Track Name: Oh Girl
Oh girl why do you run from me?
From Seattle all the way to Tennessee
Up north where we warm by the fireside
Just me and you girl in my cabin made of pine

Well I don’t think you know what I mean
When I tell you that I love you and you’re everything to me
Cause girl when I catch you I’m gonna put you in my bed
And that’s where we’re gonna stay till we’re old and dead

Oh girl why do you run from me?
Oh girl should I just let you be?
Cut them chains from my poor feet
Oh girl just let me be

If I walked this whole world round
I’d see the sun up the in clouds
But it wouldn’t be the same to me
If I was with you and you with me

Track Name: Sad News
This shit been killing me for so long
I hope they remember me when I’m gone
All I ever wanted was you
But all I ever got was the blues

My mother told me to cool it down
I wouldn’t listen I was painting the town
Nothing I ever did was wrong
Except leaving you behind when I’m gone

I’m gonna die I am gonna die
I’ve been drinking so long my time has come
You better wish me luck moving on
Wish me luck moving on

Maybe I was too foolish to know
That you were the one I was looking for
But you can’t satisfy the man
With a passion for thirst do you understand?

I’m sorry to deliver the sad news
But I think that it’s far overdue
I’ve been wearing the same old shoes
I think it’s time I walk somewhere new

Track Name: For You
i got nothing to say
nothing to say
i sing the same old songs

and the days
start to roll by
i'm gonna die

i'll give this one to some girl
who don't know how to sing
tell it's for you
and darlin everything is for you

we could move downtown
move all around
but what's the use?

all that i need
is here in the country
can't you see?

we'll have lots of children
raise em up right
show em to love
and not how to fight
Track Name: Ridin' High
It’s kind of sad how they just lay around
Dollar beer and a hand me down
Drive round the mountains and you’ll find a town
No more work the mills are all shut down

Ridin’ high, livin’ low
Had lots of choices but got nothing to show
Made all the bad decisions got nowhere to go
Didn’t lose your faith you let it go

May get lost might never be found
Was that a gunshot I’m from out of town
A 2 x 4, a sin, and a Chevrolet
Nobody ever told me what to say


Oh you’re too young to be on the run
Oh you’re too young to live under the gun

Nobody’s tying a noose around your neck
They’re giving you money making sure that you’re fed
Don’t do dope read a magazine
Maybe it’ll tell you how to keep it clean


Oh you’re too young to be on the run
Oh you’re too young to live under the gun
Track Name: Thinking of You
It’s all I can do to stop thinking of you
What I thought was fate was a mistake
I can’t help but think of you with another
Replaced by a stranger somehow
It’s all I can do to stop thinking of you
Darling our love let me down

Yesterday I looked for you face
In a crowd at the bar downtown
To no surprise I didn’t see those eyes
Your beauty I worshipped so long
It’s all I can do to stop thinking of you
Darling our love let me down

Now I can’t share my life with you
Singing with red eyes songs about you
If things were right I’d spend my whole life
Loving no one else but you
It’s all I can do to stop thinking of you
Darling our love let me down
