about

People and Place is a collection of songs that tell a particular story of the adventures of one young man, myself, Doug Streblow. These songs were conceived all over the United States while I was traveling for a year and a half in an old school bus, living with 20 other people, sleeping outside every night and backpacking into this country's wild lands. I took with me a guitar and notebook wherever I went. This album represents the people and places along the way.

"People and Place" is the debut full length album from Oakland, CA based Indie/Folk Rock band Buckeye Knoll, released on April 20th, 2010

Track Name: Luck Be A Lady
Luck Be A Lady

I’ll take my time when I’m waking up
I’ll let luck be a lady
The sweet sunrise off the east coastline
Got my heart and soul connected

This life aint always easy
I know from my experience
The days blow by with the breeze
We’re all moving on

I’ll seek the truth in the darkest hours
I’ll recognize the beauty in the breakdown
The paradox is the only truth
You can only see what’s in front of you

This life aint always easy
I know from my experience
The days blow by with the breeze
We’re all moving on

Track Name: The Truth
The Truth

I know you want to tell your story
But babe it seems so boring when you don’t believe in you
Cause I do
And babe I want to hear it
From your lips please speak it
Darling speak your truth
It’s all any of us can do

When words clutter up the feeling
The framing and ceiling crumble at your feet
You try to make sense of the meaning
That’s lying there in pieces
You lie puzzled too
And I know that you’re strong
But these walls only keep me from you
You gotta speak your truth
Speak your truth

You’ve got to want it all now

Track Name: Counting Sunsets
Counting Sunsets

So long sweet darling
While we travel round the world
Here’s another song to let you know how I feel

While we ride telephone lines
Counting sunsets as the present rolls along
We spent some time apart for a while
But our promise lingers on
It keeps me hanging on.

The words that I write down
Make me feel a little shy
Cause they can’t even begin to describe what’s going on inside

While we ride telephone lines
Counting sunsets as the present rolls along
We spent some time apart for a while
But our promise lingers on
It keeps me hanging on.

Track Name: I Roll (Ft. Emily Moldy)
I Roll

Up on a hill
Life’s so much better here
Than down below
There’s not much space between the two
And my hope
Is that we will realize
That we are close
And that we don’t have too far to go

Down at the barn
We sing like we’re family
The truth is we are
When words fill the space they fill our hearts
And then we fall
In love with the melodies
We sing to the stars
We sing like the world is listening

All I need is something out of nothing
It’s how I seem to grow
All I need is something out of nothing
It’s how I seem to roll
I Roll

All I need is something out of nothing
It’s how I seem to grow
All I need is something out of nothing
Yeah we all got that something

Track Name: Loving Is Leaving
When Loving is Leaving

When loving is leaving
There’s never enough time for goodbyes
If timing’s the issue
Then where can I get more time?

Here I go again
Trying to settle down
Surrounded by my friends
When all I want is her around
Trying to pick it up
When I am falling down
Missing pieces of myself
Like a voice without the sound

This day’s like a river
Filled up to the brim
And all that’s washed away in it
Becomes the life blooming in the spring

Here I go again
Trying to settle down
Surrounded by my friends
When all I want is her around
Trying to pick it up
When I am falling down
Missing pieces of myself
Like a voice without the sound

Track Name: Wondering (Ft. Lauren Shera)
Wondering

Wondering when
I’ll see you again
How it’ll feel
To hold your hand in my hand

I should have known
That things would change
They always do.
I’ve seen life rearrange
And you should know that I remain
More in love with you everyday

Wondering when
I’ll be in your bed
Wondering when
I’ll do good on the words that I’ve said

I should have known
That things would change
They always do.
I’ve seen life rearrange
And you should know that I remain
More in love with you everyday

I’ve seen the future and it’s looking bright
With you and I side by side
You are the plans I want to make
We could love all our mistakes

I should have known
That things would change
They always do.
I’ve seen life rearrange
And you should know that I remain
More in love with you everyday

Track Name: In My Sky (Ft. Taylor Brown)
In My Sky

Sunrise to sunset
I’m still doing my best
Laying doubts to rest
Till the day is done

And when I’m feeling blue
I sit down next to you
And you show me that I am not alone

The moon rise in your eyes
You know I just can’t hide
You are the stars in my sky

As summer fades to fall
We boarded planes to all ends of the earth
We dream our separate dreams

When winter comes again
We’ll return and then
By the fire
Share what we’ve seen

The moon rise in your eyes
You know I just can’t hide
You are the stars in my sky

Track Name: When You're Gone
When You’re Gone

When you’re gone
Will I remember
The way you smile, or the smell of your coat?
And when your boots retire after countless summers
Kicking round the ranch

When you’re gone
When you’re gone

When I’m lost and need direction
Can I count on you, when you’re gone?
I’ll take myself up to that old buckeye tree and I’ll lay me down
Cause I know that’s where you are,

That’s where you are
That’s where you are

Even when you’re gone, you know you’re always in my heart
Even when you’re gone, you know you’re always in my heart

When you’re gone
Will I remember
The way you smile, or the smell of your coat?
And when your boots retire after countless summers
Kicking round the ranch

Track Name: Keep You Close To Me
Keep You Close To Me

Songs never die,
They live on in this life
In a memory, in a melody
They live on, they live on

And it’s all that I can do
And it’s all that I can say
To keep you close to me

Wrong is never right
No matter how long she’s by your side
Instantaneously, oh you get that clarity
If you can just open you mind

And it’s all that I can do
And it’s all that I can say
To keep you close to me

Track Name: Smile Like The Sun
Smile Like the Sun

She’s got a way about her
That makes me want to lose myself
She’s got this way to capture
My whole heart when hands are held

I know I’m crazy,
Crazy in love with my baby

She’s got this way of looking
Deep in my soul with just one glance
She’s got this pair of green eyes
They always keep me coming back for more

I know I’m crazy,
Crazy in love with my baby

She’s got this way of walking
Into a room so nonchalant
Then lighting up the darkness,
As if her smile was the sun

I’m so crazy, she’s my baby, I’m so crazy in love
I’m so wasted from all the time spent waiting on this love

Track Name: Slow And Steady
Slow and Steady

Slow and Steady
Like the phases of the moon
Counting days pass till I’m seeing you

I catch my breath
And then it slips away
I watch it stumble into words and sentences

I’m wanting something that even time can’t bend
Even when I can’t see the light I know you’ll be there
I want to be there to watch you growing old
Hold you hand next to my heart as I sing to you

We write our letters
We place our stamps like corner stones
We send our words out and they mean more than we could ever know

And On that day when
Our lips do meet again
We’ll hold each other and we will know that this was worth the wait

I’m wanting something that even time can’t bend
Even when I can’t see the light I know you’ll be there
I want to be there to watch you growing old
Hold you hand next to my heart as I sing to you

Track Name: People and Place
People and Place

Oh how the mountains hum their sweet melodies
As I lie in my bed on the ground fast asleep
Oh when I wake all around me I see
The stars and the night swirling round through the trees

And oh these are the times I give my thanks
To the sweetness of life
My people and place
And recognize those whom come before
And the ones who will come forevermore

The morning it comes at the end of a dream
And the soft kiss of light floods the day orange and pink
My body it shakes and it stirs with the breeze
As I’m coming awake it’s my own song I sing

And oh these are the times I give my thanks
To the sweetness of life
My people and place
And recognize those whom come before
And the ones who will come forevermore

The afternoon settles, as shadows grow long
Stretching as far as they can before dark
Beginnings and ending blur one and the same
I smile because I am alive one more day

And oh these are the times I give my thanks
To the sweetness of life
My people and place
And recognize those whom come before
And the ones who will come forevermore

Track Name: Always With You (BONUS B-Side Ft Lauren Shera)
Always with You

Sweet love of mine. I’m always with you. Sweet darling, I’m always by your side.

We’ve got miles, oh the distance put between us by the lives we lead. Oh the choices that we both make, we say it’s for the best and then we leave. And then we leave.

Can we love the facts? Is this indeed everything that we’ve dreamed. Then why can this hurt so bad?

We’ve got miles, oh the distance put between us by the lives we lead. Oh the choices that we both make, we say it’s for the best and then we leave. And then we leave. Please don’t leave me.

We’ve got miles, oh the distance put between us by the lives we lead. Oh the choices that we both make, we say it’s for the best and then we leave. And then we leave. Please don’t leave me.
