about

In my travels I have tried cheeseburgers from all over the world. From Nepal to Scotland. And being from the South we love our cheeseburgers just as much as anyone. So much so, I felt I should pay homage to a great little burger joint in Claremont NC. They make their burgers "all the way" (Chilli, slaw mustard and onions) We call it the Carolina style. That burger with some fries and a glass of of sweet iced tea will give you instant heartburn but it's the perfect cure for a hangover.
My baptism into the cheeseburger fire began at an early age. We would head over to the cafe while taking a break from rehearsals. Jimmy Buffet's not the only man who loves a great cheeseburger.. I just found my paradise in a small town in NC.

lyrics

Claremont Café
(J. Birchfield)

Who’s next?
Becomes your name
When you walk in through that screen door
Aint’ got a waitress
You know they don’t credit cards
Their ice tea’s so sweet
They’ve never heard of Equal
Their specialty is a burger with cheese
With Chili mustard onions and coleslaw

You say you’re nervous
You’re not sure what to do
Just be patient
Till it comes down to you
When you finally arrive
At the head of that line
Shout it out without a doubt
Let it come from deep inside

Halleluiah
I’ll take it all the way
I’ve got to have that
Special grease
Burnin’ in my veins
Halleluiah
Well this is my judgement day
After just one bite
I’ve finally seen the light
At the Claremont Café

Solo

It ain’t no secret
Bout where you been
It’s not because you got that
Chili on your chin
Cause they smelled the aroma
From halfway down the hall
SO when you walk on by
Raise your hands up high
Testify to them all

Halleluiah
Well I took it all the way
I’ve got to have that
Special grease
Burnin’ in my veins
Halleluiah
Well this is my judgement day
After just one bite
I’ve finally seen the light
At the Claremont Café

After just one bite
I’ve finally seen the light
At the Claremont Café

After just one bite
I’ve finally seen the light
At the Claremont Café

Amen-

In an over saturated world of “bro-country”, country outlaw wannabes, JB has remained true to the roots of his musical past. JBs music has been described as an in your face, southern country, roots rock, from the southern heartland. ... more
