MR. BLUE

[Mr. Lonely's best friend]

Our guardian star lost all his glow

The day that I lost you

He lost all his glitter the day you said "No"

And his silver turned to blue

Like him, I am doubtful that your love is true

But if you decide to call on me

Ask for Mr. Blue

I'm Mr. Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh)

When you say you love me (ah, Mr. Blue)

Then prove it by goin' out on the sly

Provin' your love isn't true

Call me Mr. Blue

I'm Mr. Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh)

When you say you're sorry (ah, Mr. Blue)

Then turn around, head for the lights of town

Hurtin' me through and through

Call me Mr. Blue

I stay at home at night (I stay at home)

Right by the phone at night (right by the phone)

But you won't call

And I-I won't hu-urt my pride (call me mister...)

I won't tell you (wah-a-wah-ooh)

Why you paint the town (ah, Mr. Blue)

A bright red to turn it upside down

I'm paintin' it too

But I'm paintin' it blue

Call me Mr. Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh)

Call me Mr. Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh)

Call me Mr. Blue

SCARED

I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared

I'm scared, so scared

I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared

As the years roll away

And the price that I paid

And the straws slips away

You don't have to suffer

It is what it is

No bell book or candle

Can get you out of this, oh no!

I'm scarred, I'm scarred, I'm scarred

I'm scarred, uh huh

I'm scarred, I'm scarred, I'm scarred

Every day of my life

I just manage to survive

I just want to stay alive

You don't have to worry

In heaven or hell

Just dance to the music

You do it so well, well, well!

Hatred and jealousy, gonna be the death of me

I guess I knew it right from the start

Sing out about love and peace

Don't want to see the red raw meat

The green eyed goddamn straight from your heart

I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired

Of being so alone

No place to call my own

Like a rollin' stone

These links have little to do with the current situation, yet they have everything to do with it.


Tom's Joad's speech (John Steinbeck/Henry Fonda)

The Ghost of Tom Joad (Bruce Springteen)

The Ballad of Tom Joad (Woody Guthrie)

DON'T FENCE ME IN*

*(NOT an invitation to disregard socail distancing!)

Oh give me land, lots of land, and the starry skies above

Don't fence me in

Let me ride through the wide open country that I love

Don't fence me in

Let me be by myself in the evening breeze

And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees

Send me off forever but I ask you please

Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle 

Underneath the western skies

On my cayuse, let me wander over yonder

Till I see the mountains rise

I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences

Too many words, gaze at the moon till I lose my senses

And I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences

Don't fence me in

Oh give me land, lots of land, and the starry skies above

Don't fence me in Let me ride through the wide open country that I love

Don't fence me in

Let me ride through the wide open country that I love

Don't fence me in

Let me be by myself in the evening breeze

And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees

Send me off forever but I ask you please

Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle 

Underneath the western skies

On my cayuse, let me wander over yonder

Till I see the mountains rise

I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences

Gaze at the moon till I lose my senses

And I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences

Don't fence me in

No, Papa, don't you fence me in

NOBODY KNOWS THE TROUBLE I'VE SEEN

Louis Armstrong himself recorded several versions; it took me a few tries to find this particular one, my favorite.

IN MY SOLITUDE

I’ve posted this one before, but Tony’s version is so different from Billie’s (the arrangement, the phrasing) that it’s almost a different song. Again, as with Louis yesterday, Tony has recorded this song many times, but this one (with Count Basie and his orchestra) is the best (at least it’s my favorite). Compare Tony’s version to Billie’s for minutes of fun!

Master of Puppets (live) from S&M 

I'M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY

I cannot believe I didn’t think to post this out last week with “Mr. Lonely,” but better late than never.

Hank Williams’ is the classic version, but there’s something to be said for Elvis’ version, too.

Listen to them both and compare!

HANK WILLIAMS

ELVIS PRESLEY

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill

He sounds too blue to fly

The midnight train is whining low

I'm so lonesome I could cry

I've never seen a night so long

When time goes crawling by

The moon just went behind the clouds

To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep

When leaves begin to die

That means he's lost the will to live

I'm so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star

Lights up a purple sky

And as I wonder where you are

I'm so lonesome I could cry

Led Zeppelin lll. It may be their most overlooked album. Bron-Y-Aur Stomp is a particular favorite of mine
