mystery cassette

there's a cassette i found that has an awesome band with awesome songs, but i don't know who they are because it was an early i guess i'd call it ripped cassette and it doesn't say who it is. here's some of the lyrics to one of the song

well i never done time i never got caught
i did it all the way and i did it a lot
so many bodies went the other way
now i got nobody since she's gone today

i was born to the county year of fifty one
i lived there sitting by the settin' sun
i know every backroad every backfield
every spring or water and every pretty girl

i lived in a rough shack upper part of town
i grew up good and i was the class clown
i had no mother so they fathered me
i grow up wild and they pacified me

here's the lyrics for the first side of the cassette transcribed to the best of my ability

well i never done time i never got caught
i did it all the way and i did it a lot
so many bodies went the other way
now i got nobody since she's gone today

i was born to the county year of fifty one
i lived there dyin' by the settin' sun
i know every backroad every backfield
every spring or water and every pretty girl

i lived in an earth shack upper part of town
i grew up good and i was the class clown
i had no mother so they fathered me
i grow up wild and they pacified me
i took my first at fifteen years
i drink the whiskey and i drink the beer
i taped the climbing of folton's hill
long way up when you're chewing the stills
but i never done time no i never got caught
i did it all the way and i did it a lot
so many bodies looked the other way
now i got nobody since she gone today
you dream when you're young you take a look around
a pretty county girl and your heart in the pound
if you had a car and we got the high hit
i'd pack her in the back and me and body go quit
but there was the special ones maybe one or two
_____ in my heart but i knew what to do
i never said i love them but i let them know this
if you come with me girl you'll never be missed
but young love knows that young love goes
you never ___ it through your heart till your ___
climbing up the hill I let go
a pretty girl caught me now i got no soul
but i never done time no i never got caught
i did it all the way and i did it a lot
so many bodies went the other way
now i got nobody since she gone today
but maybe i was wild yes maybe they were right
i'm sittin' her drunk me and ____ had a fight
i live in the county from day to day
the pretty girl left me now i'm gone insane

but after drama and trauma i'm still okay
i_____ never knew the county way
if you find a woman tryin' to change what you are
i suggest you sell her and you buy yourself a car
but i never done time no i never got caught
i did it all the way and i did it a lot
so many bodies looked the other way
now i got nobody since she gone today
since she gone today
i said she gone today (repeat)

I finally put the cassette on youtube, so you can listen to the songs and see if they sound familiar.

it's been over a year since I put up the youtube videos, and I'm still not a step closer to finding out anything about the tape.

Well I really want to know what's on those tapes. They're very good songs, and I have a very strong curiosity and want to to listen to more by the band/s that made them.

I'm sorry, I listened to them, but that style of music just really is not my taste.

Sounds Irish, sounds like the seventies, sounds obscure. No idea.

Makes me think of Paul Brady.

They all sound like early to mid seventies, especially the third song. They must be obscure, otherwise I'd have found something by now. Thanks for trying.

another update: I've run most of the songs through tunatic, and came up with nothing. This is the weirdest thing.

Chances are it's some unsigned band's demo cassette or something. Where did you find it?

I found it in my grandmother's basement. It was an originally blank cassette that had "wings - venus and mars" written on it.
