Song of the moment

Recommended Posts

That is just a little bit freaky because I just came from the front porch where I had been playing that exact song. (Whiskey Before Breakfast). Not that well mind you. When I first heard the lyrics to that song it cracked me up.

Speaking of Clarence White's guitar...the first decent guitar that I ever had was an old Guild and I could not help but enlarge the sound hole to try to imitate that guitar. Of course it just wasn't quite the same.

thanks dmiller

Check out these 3 kids from Tupelo (9, 13 and 15 years old)

They call themselves Homemade Jamz

I hauled all my equipment out to the curb after I saw this! :biglaugh:

Album for today - Come Dancing with the Kinks - The Best of the Kinks 1977-1986.

It makes me happy.

Here are the lyrics from the song of the moment: A Gallon of Gas by The Kinks

I've been waiting for years to buy a brand new cadillac

But now that I've got one I want to send it right back

I can't afford the gas to fill my luxury limousine

But even if I had the dough no one's got no gasoline

I went to my local dealer to see if he could set me straight

He said there's a little gas going but I'd have to wait

But he offered some red hot speed and some really high grade hash

But a gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere for any amount of cash

I can score you some coke and some grade one grass

But I can't get a gallon of gas

I've got some downers some speed all the drugs that you need

But I can't get a gallon of gas

There's no more left to buy or sell

There's no more oil left in the well

A gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere

For any amount of cash

two extra verses from long version:

I love your body-work, but you're really no use

How can I drive you when I got no juice?

Because it's stuck in neutral and my engine's got no speed

And the highways are deserted

and the air smells unnaturally clean.

It's got power-assisted overdrive and carpets on the floor,

but it's parked out front just like a dead dinosaur.

And I'll be paying off the bank for 45 years or more.

It should go 100 miles an hour,

but it's never moved away from my door.

Who needs a car and a seven-forty-seven

When you can't buy a gallon of gas

Who needs a highway, an airport or a jet

When you can't get a gallon of gas

There's no more left to buy or sell

There's no more oil left in the well

A gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere

For any amount of cash

You can't buy a gallon of gas
