One more by Dave Van Ronk...
Gaslight Rag...

His sense of humor about working sleazy dives to make a dime.


Gaslight Rag

Another damn day, ah, take it away,
I gotta make my gig on time.
Playin' on guitar, bein' a star,
Stumbling for nickels and dimes.
Silly damn pride, out of my mind,
Crazy if I stay.
Leave your wife and bring your knife,
If you're working at Mitchell's Cafe.

I had a dream that the Gaslight was clean,
And the rats were all scrubbed down.
The coffee was great and the waitresses straight,
And Patrick Sky left town.
No one was swocked and Dylan played Bach,
And Ochs' songs all scanned.
I got out of bed and I straightened my head,
And started a rock-n-roll band.

Ah, honey babe, honey babe,
Let me carry you down.
Pimps and whores and grunge on the floor,
And the finest show in town.
Pizza stands and skiffle bands,
And Pogo's buyin' this round.
There's not much life but there's plenty of fights,
When you're singin' in a hole in the ground.

But of course.......Pete Seeger wrote the song......
Pete and Arlo...remember Alice

And a few others.......Garbage...

Or Bring 'Em Home.. A song as valid today as it was 40 some years ago..........

And another song he wrote that rang the world over......
Intro.....

The result? The Byrds....Turn, Turn, Turn.

Why have the lords of war not listened, even yet?

And Bruce wrote his own take on it......

"Devils and dust"

I got my finger on the trigger
But I don't know who to trust
When I look into your eyes
There's just devils and dust
We're a long, long way from home, Bobbie
Home's a long, long way from us
I feel a dirty wind blowing
Devils and dust

I got God on my side
I'm just trying to survive
What if what you do to survive
Kills the things you love
Fear's a powerful thing
It can turn your heart black you can trust
It'll take your God filled soul
And fill it with devils and dust

Well I dreamed of you last night
In a field of blood and stone
The blood began to dry
The smell began to rise
Well I dreamed of you last night
In a field of mud and bone
Your blood began to dry
The smell began to rise

We've got God on our side
We're just trying to survive
What if what you do to survive
Kills the things you love
Fear's a powerful thing
It'll turn your heart black you can trust
It'll take your God filled soul
Fill it with devils and dust

Now every woman and every man
They want to take a righteous stand
Find the love that God wills
And the faith that He commands
I've got my finger on the trigger
And tonight faith just ain't enough
When I look inside my heart
There's just devils and dust

Well I've got God on my side
And I'm just trying to survive
What if what you do to survive
Kills the things you love
Fear's a dangerous thing
It can turn your heart black you can trust
It'll take your God filled soul
Fill it with devils and dust

It'll take your God filled soul

Fill it with devils and dust


Copyright © Bruce Springsteen (ASCAP)

As performed for the 2006 Grammy Awards show...
Devils and Dust.

BTW..It is also a tribute to Bob Dylan...
"We're a long, long way from home, Bobbie
Home's a long, long way from us
I feel a dirty wind blowing
Devils and dust."

May God save us from ourselves........
He knows our politicians won't.
Dylan...
Masters of War.....
Sadly, I cannot find a single version of it on youtube by Dylan himself, only covers, due to the money grubbing bastards worried that somebody might hear his words for free.

Wonderful tune....
Woke up this morning, and it was playing on the internet link I left open last night...
Avenue 91.1 FM
Local non-profit station.
Nice mix they play....give it a whirl.

But...anyways...
This was the tune....I think it made the difference between sink and swim this morning.
John Hiatt....Have A Little Faith In Me.

And now I recall that Joe Cocker did a wonderful version of it too.

Just want to share again my newest favorite radio station....
Avenue 91.1
A new, non-profit radio station out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA.
Most of you cannot receive it over the air, of course. But through the wonder of the internet, you can click on 'listen live' and should be able to enjoy if your bandwidth is sufficient. There is some advertising to support the station, but less than most commercial for-profit stations.

They play a rather eclectic mix of tunes....most are rather laid back and relaxing.
Anything from big band era to current vocalists. But all most mellow.
A lot of covers of tunes you know, and a lot of originals of songs that have been covered since.

Give it a whirl, and please let me know what you think.

Meow meow.

The losers now will be ready to win.......

I don't understand..........
One single kiss would have made my life.

One, single little kiss. To share her soul for that one instant.

If God had only granted me that. Or her.

I don't think anobody has pined for her like I have.......
Except for maybe Peter and Paul. Less Mary.

If you only knewl..


I gotta go......cut into the meat of one of my fingers whilst slicing up a pizza for dinner....blood all over the place. No tendons cut.

Ouch.

I am 53
And it would not take but a heartbeat.


Great Balls........

Myra divorced him about 30 years ago. He has not been the same since.

Quaid was to die for in the rockin' bio..........

And, as far as I have been able to determine....
The 'flaming whiskey' stage act was a real stunt.
He was soooooooooo pissed at having to be the opener rather that the main show....
Set the piana on fire.........goodness, gracious. Great Balls.....................................of.........fire.
