Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks – "Long Come a Viper"

December 9, 2019 Leave a comment

I’m standing on the corner
With my feet in my shoes
Racking my brains how to pay my dues

My jug is empty of my number one booze
Along comes a viper and I blow my blues
I got the elation, hesitation, dissipation,
coagulation,

Relation, angzation, emancipation, propagation,
Moppin’, soppin’, talk about your coppin’ blues!
It’s never too late to be up to date
You can get it now but you’ll have to wait!

Along comes a chick, comes a little dolly
She’s out waling her big fat collie
“Golly,” Miss Molly says,
“You’re looking might jolly!”

“There ain’t none left but I’m really mighty solly”
I got the outerspace, what a race, dropped an ace
in my face, a – goose chase, you wanna taste

Match it, scratch it, stretch it, catch it blues!
*It’s never too late to be up to date
You can get it now but you’ll have to wait

Just because she made them googly eyes
I thought I’d won a home and copped a price,
uh huh!

The way I’m talking it might be a sin
But if it’s cool I think I’ll try again
You want a little just hit me with a fin
It’ll blow your mind

so you won’t know where you been
I got the elation, hesitation, dissipation,
coagulation,

Relaxation, angzation, emancipation propagation,
Moppin’, soppin’, talk about your coppin’….
Outer space, what a race, dropped an ace in my face,
a – goose chase, you wanna taste,

Match it, scratch it, stretch it, catch it blues!

J.J. Cale/ Eric Clapton – Call Me The Breeze Live From Crossrods Guitar Festival 2004

December 5, 2019 Leave a comment

Call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
Well now they call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
I ain’t got me nobody
I don’t carry me no load

Ain’t no change in the weather
Ain’t no changes in me
Well there ain’t no change in the weather
Ain’t no changes in me
And I ain’t hidin’ from nobody
Nobody’s hidin’ from me
Oh, that’s the way its supposed to be

Well I got that green light baby
I got to keep movin’ on
Well I got that green light baby
I got to keep movin’ on
Well I might go out to California
Might go down to Georgia
I don’t know

Well I dig you Georgia peaches
Makes me feel right at home
Well now I dig you Georgia peaches
Makes me feel right at home
But I don’t love me no one woman
So I can’t stay in Georgia long

Well now they call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
Well now they call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
I ain’t got me nobody
I don’t carry me no load
Oooh Mr Breeze

Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there ain’t no place I’m goin’ to
Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning, I’ll come followin’ you

Take me for a trip upon your magic swirlin’ ship
All my senses have been stripped
And my hands can’t feel to grip
And my toes too numb to step
Wait only for my boot heels to be wanderin’

I’m ready to go anywhere I’m ready for to fade
On to my own parade cast your dancin’ spell my way
I promise to go under it

Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there ain’t no place I’m goin’ to
Hey Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning, I’ll come followin’ you
