Fulfilling A Promise
The Hamiltons are a musical project put together by Robert Hamilton as an outlet to feature original songs that were wrote by and with the late great Cranford Hamilton Nix (Jan 17th 1969-March 12th 2002).
After Cranford passed Robert had lunch with his father and was asked by his dad to record his son's music. "I promised him that I would do it but only when the timing was right". Ford Sr. died in October of 2012 and "I felt a terrible sense of guilt but I still wasn't ready. In 2013, My band LIXX opened for Grand Funk Railroad on the Detroit Riverfront and played to over 10,000 people and it was then that " I realized that I owed it to my best friend, mentor, musical teacher and long lost brother to bring his music back to life in a way that would not only make him proud, but also give him his rightful place in American Music History". Robert Hamilton April 2014
Released January 17th 2014 the Hamiltons first album"In Cranford We Trust" has 9 Songs written by Cranford, 1 Co-write with Robert (One Last Thing) that take the best of The Rolling Stones, Ramones, Johnny Cash, & Cheap Trick musically, and lyrically. The Hamiltons put together a sanguine CD that leaves evidence of an authentic smile. Also included on the record was a "roots acoustic" cover of the wonderful Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter classic: "Friend Of The Devil" that embodies the struggles of both Cranford & Robert and also the lives of many others. If I could say 1 thing to Cranford now it would be this: "I love you & thank you for sharing your gift with me and all of us" says Robert as he readies himself and the band for their Angels of Light Tour as The Hamiltons have recorded a monster follow up titled "Angels In Love that is to be released January 11th 2015

The Hamiltons define stage bravado & swag by their extremely colorful hats from Detroit's famous Henry The Hatter and bright souls that light up the stage every show they play. Look for The Hamiltons to be coming to a stage near you in the near future and make sure to smile and say hello! "Without love in a dream, it will NEVER come true"

Track Name: Motherfuckin' Blues
Mother Fucking Blues
Music Bluesy Intro 4 Times:
I’ve had women man from coast to coast troubles follow me they just wont go
someday baby my luck is gonna change & everyone is gonna know my name
Done a lot of cheatin’ baby just to get by I made a 100 bitches break down & cry
someday I’m not gonna have to lie & everyone is gonna wanna get me high
Chorus:
I don’t need no money honey i don’t need no car
I don’t need no whores waitin’ at the bar
all I need honey are cigarettes and booze
and to get rid off these mother-fucking blues
I’m not shy baby I’m not proud I’m not sexy but I’m fucking loud
I’m everything that I wanna be, don’t have nothing but at least I’m free
it doesn’t matter babe where I end up, fucking in a limo or a pick up truck
either way honey I’ll be drunk & I don’t really give a fuck
Chorus
Bluesy Interlude
All my life Ive been fucked up, ones too many, a thousands not enough
Lying to mirror, trying to brake free, that mother fucking devil has got a hold of me
So dont you cry baby when Im gone, as I wrote it all inside this song
I’ve never been one who aimed to please, smiling from the coffin while your on your knees.... CHORUS
Track Name: Friend Of The Devil
Friend Of The Devil
I lit out from reno, I was trailed by twenty hounds Didn't get to sleep last night till the morning came around.
CHORUS:
Set out runnin but I take my time A friend of the devil is a friend of mine.........
If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight.
Ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me twenty bills I spent the night in utah in a cave up in the hills.
CHORUS
I ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there He took my twenty dollar bill and vanished in the air.
CHORUS
Bridge:
Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night,
The first ones named sweet Anne Marie, and she's my hearts delight.
The second one is prison, baby, the sheriffs on my trail,
And if he catches up with me, I'll spend my life in jail.
Got a wife in chino, babe, and one in cherokee
The first one says she's got my child, but it don't look like me.
CHORUS
Double SOLO
BRIDGE
Got a wife in chino, babe, and one in cherokee
The first one says she's got my child, but it don't look like me.
CHORUS
Track Name: Annie Good Bye
Annie Good-bye
Music 2 Times

I-----m not good in bed, I got an aching head
I might as well be dead
I----- ain’t no Romeo, I ain’t no Leo DiCaprio
On the late late show

Chorus:
& I Gotta tell you something,
I hope it don’t make you cry,
Annie Good-bye
This is so hard to say darling, but I’m gonna try
& I’m gonna die

I----just want some sleep
I got myself in deep, this is killing me
I----didn’t understand, I’m was in a band
I can’t think for a man

Chorus:
& I wanna tell you something & I hope it don’t make you cry
Annie Good-bye
This is so hard to say darling but I’m gonna try
& I’m gonna die

SOLO
