Spirit: I Got A Line On You

 

That one is part of our current act.

 

 

 

Hey Slim!!  That’s a Roger Miller song!  Can’t recall the name!!!

 

Y’all try this one!!

 

The festival was over,

And the boys were planning for a fall,

The cabaret was quiet,

Except for the drilling in the wall.

The curfew had been lifted and the gambling wheel shut down.

Anyone with any sense had already left town.

 

This is Bob Dylan: Lilly, Rosemary, and The Jack of Hearts

Them that’s got shall get.

Them that’s not shall lose.

So the Bible says,

And it still is news.

Mamma may have,

And Papa may have,

But...

Good job, Joke um!!

 

Once I lived the life of a millionaire,

Spent all my money. I just did not care.

Takin’ all my friends out for a good time.

Buyin’ bootleg whiskey, champagne, and wine....

More Van Morrison! Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out off of Moondance, if I remember correctly. Mrs. Doc had that on vinyl when we first started dating. Pretty sure my youngest may have "borrowed" it for her collection.

Right, Doc!!

Otiginally Bessie Smith in the late 1920’s! A Blues standard.  Also Derek and The Dominos from the Layla Project album and many others.

This should be EASY!!

 

I seen the bright lights of Memphis,

And the Commodore Hotel.

And underneath a streetlamp,

I met a southern belle.

There was hookers, and hustlers, filled up the room

I heard about this place they call the Spanish Moon.........

 

I know, I gave away the song title. I just felt like singing a Little Feet song.

Whippoorwill callin’,

Soft summer breeze,

Makes me think of my baby,

 I left down in New Orleans.

 

 I was in the studio when this song was recorded, so you KNOW it’s old!!

This song just popped in my head.  Do you know it?

 

Wake up, got another day to get through now
Got another man to see
Got to call him on the telephone
Got to find a piece of paper
Sit down, got another letter to write
Think hard got to get the letter just right
There's a ringing on the telephone
Oh no, got to write a little later
No such day as tomorrow, only one two three go!

Blues???

 The song is not in the Blues genre, but that is the title and the lyric.  This is not that garbage “Carwash” song that was played incessantly  on the radio years ago!

Actually, it’s written and was performed by J.J. Cale. He was one of Clapton’s favorite writers/collaborators. Also wrote and recorded Cocaine, After Midnight, and Call Me the Breeze among many others!!

 

 I was working as a technician, re-wiring the studio at Bradley’s Barn when that album was recorded. We changed the studio over from 16 track stereo to 64 channel quadraphonic.  It was really impressive! The last artist to record on the 16 channel system was Burl Ives and J.J. Cale was the first to use the new system.  One of my classmates, Nick Rather, went on to be J.J.’s bass player until Cale passed away.

 

And yeah, my drummer who is another classmate, says that I should write a book!  I ain’t all that impressed with myself!!:lol:

You would probably be wanting your money back!!

 

Try this one!

 

Born a natural loser, I can’t recall just where,

 

Raised on brew and poker and a dollar here and there.

 

Blackjack hand, dealer man. You better pay off that last bet!

 

Two bit hand of twenty-one is all I ever get!

I will admit I had to look that one up. If nobody gets it soon, I'll spill the beans. In the meanwhile, here's one that I will be surprised if anyone here knows, despite its popularity with the younger crowd

I'm two quarters and a heart down
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have so I'll write them
So you need them just to get by

I want to say it's the Allman Brothers, but I can't come up with the title.  Am I close?

Nope.  I could hear it in my head, so I looked it up.  

Agree.  Great band.

No sir!  But! It IS a band with great arrangements and fabulous instrumentation!

 

I’ll spill.  Blood Sweat And Tears: Go Down Gamblin’!

 

 I sometimes find myself wishing that my band included horns!!  On occasions when horn players sit in with us, it’s remarkable what we can do!!
