Name that Tune

My Poppa said, 'Son don't let the man get you, do what he done to me' "

Born on The Bayou ~CCR~ Can't wait to see Mr. Fogerty this summer! :)

New tune:

I was a little too tall

Could've used a few pounds

Tight pants points hardly reknown

She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes

And points all her own sitting way up high

Way up firm and high

Edited by Human without the bean

New One:

Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace

I dream at night I can only see your face

I look around but it's you I can't replace

I feel so cold and I long for your embrace

"Life's Been Good" - Joe Walsh

New One:

Cause I'm leavin' in the morning

And I must see you again

We'll have one more night together

Til' the morning brings my train

"Last Train to Clarksville" -- The Monkees

She drives real fast, and she drives real hard;

She's the terror of Colorado Boulevard

"The Little Old Lady from Pasadena" (go granny, go granny, go granny, go) - Beach Boys; Jan and Dean

New One:

Come along with me

We'll dance until morning, just you and me

and maybe, if the music is right

I'll meet ya tomorrow so late at night

Here's more:

And it's magic

If the music is groovy

It makes you feel happy like an old time movie

Here's some more (in sequence):

And it's magic

If the music is groovy

It makes you feel happy like an old time movie

I'll tell ya about the magic

It'll free you soul

but it's like trying to tell a stranger 'bout rock and roll

If you believe in magic, don't bother to choose

Come along with me

We'll dance until morning, just you and me

and maybe, if the music is right

I'll meet ya tomorrow so late at night

Bonus Hints:

In last Sunday's Mad Men, this group snagged a mention in a phone conversation between Sally and Glen Bishop.

The song was written by John Sebastian.

Rosanna's down in Texarkana

Wanted me to push her broom

Sweet Eileen's in Abilene

She forgot I hung the moon

Rosanna's down in Texarkana

Wanted me to push her broom

Sweet Eileen's in Abilene

She forgot I hung the moon

And Allison's in Galveston

Somehow lost her sanity

And Dimple's who now lives in Temple's

Got the law looking for me

[Chorus, contains title]

I remember that old Frio River

Where I learned to swim

But it brings to mind another time

Where I wore my welcome thin

By transcendental meditation

I go there each night

But I always come back to myself

Long before daylight

OK. I got one.

Hint: This is from the 60's.

The guilty undertaker sighs

The lonesome organ grinder cries

The silver saxophones say I should refuse you

The cracked bells and washed-out horns

Blow into my face with scorn

But it's not that way

I wasn't born to lose you
