OK, the playlist here moved over to folk...

Mr. Bojangles- David Bromberg
www.youtube.com

Lyrics...

genius.com

...
I met him in a cell down in New Orleans, alright
I was down and out
He looked to me to be
The eyes of age as he spoke right out
He talked of life
Yes, he talked of life
He laughed and slapped his leg a step

...

I met him in a cell down in New Orleans, alright
I was down and out
He looked to me to be
The eyes of age as he spoke right out
He talked of life
Yes, he talked of life
He laughed and slapped his leg a step

He said the name Bojangles
And then he danced a lick
Across the cell
He grabbed his pants a better stance
Oh, he jumped up high, high
He clicked his heels
He let go a laugh
You know he let go a laugh
He shook back his clothes all around

Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
C'mon dance

[Spoken by David Bromberg,

"This is really a true story, ya know. A lot of people had heard the song. And well, at least Jerry Jeff has told me it was a true story.

I played guitar with Jerry Jeff Walker for about two years and we did this song every night for two years. And I never got tired of it. Jerry got a little tired of it.

At night after the clubs closed we would do horrible things to it.

It was a true story, he, this guy, Bojangles was a, he was a street dancer in New Orleans.

What he do was go from bar to bar, and ah, he put-a, put money in the jukebox or get someone else to do it. And then he would either dance or pantomime the tune, right. And for that people would buy him drinks, get him pretty drunk, and then he would go onto the next bar and, the next one until it was closing time. And then he would do it the next night. And after a few night of this, he would end up on the corner and the cops would pick him up and take him to the drunk-tank; which is where Jerry Jeff met him.

Ah, Jerry Jeff wasn't there on a research project,

I... I mean the way I got that story, I, I may have that wrong, but the way I got that was he propositioned the right woman, at the right time, in the wrong place. And her husband, the bartender ... ah, called the cops and they, ah, they took Jerry, ah, to the parish jail. And he, he and this guy just talked for three days in the cell about, you know about what he does."]


He said he danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
Throughout the south
He spoke with tears of fifteen years
How his dog and him
Traveled about
His dog up and died
You know his dog up and died
After twenty years he still grieves
He said, I dance now at every chance in honky-tonks
For drinks and tips
But most the time
I spend behind these county bars
Cause I drinks a bit
He shook his head
And as he shook his head
I heard someone ask please

Mister Bojangles

Mister Bojangles
C'mon

[Instrumental Interlude]

"Ah, Jerry Jeff wasn't there on a research project, "

Such a great line.

Here's another song along those lines...

Treat Her Right - I Think She Likes Me
www.youtube.com

Lyrics...

genius.com

...
She cross her legs, do no harm
She lets her finger run on down my arm
I asked her nicely, "Can I buy you a drink?"
You know I think she likes me, that's what I think
I think she likes me, that's what I think
Oh yeah

Some guy comes over, what does he think?
Intruding on our private thing
Man here's looking quite upset
Wavin' 'round with his gun like that, whoa

She told me things about her life
She never told me she was someone's wife
Man with the gun says, "Why'd you buy her a drink?"
I said, "I think she likes me, that's what I think."
I think she likes me, that's what I think
I think she likes me, that's what I think

@#26 ... guitar solo by Pat Metheny ...

Oh, don't get me started on Pat Metheny...

One thing I like about Mr Metheny, aside from his music, is that he gave accolades and the important album credits to Lyle Mays. Mr Mays was an amazing pianist. Mr Metheny realized and knew that, and gave credit to Mr Mays for it.

Good stuff in the cut-throat world of the music industry.

Fun tune...

Kip Addotta - Wet Dream

Lyrics...

genius.com

...
It was April the forty-first
Being a quadruple leap year
I was driving in downtown Atlantis
My Barracuda was in the shop
So I was in a rented Stingray
And it was overheating

So I pulled into a Shell Station
They said I'd blown a seal
I said, "Fix the dam thing
And leave my private life out of it
Okay pal?"

I'm actually glad you asked that.

"Chingo Bling" is kinda of a highly influential internet phenomenon among the paisa culture down here--specifically up in Houston.

He went puro Trump a few years ago. A poor-ass working Meskin starting to see success in his life (like so many of his contemporaries) and starting to spread the message among the gente what the American Dream is all about.

The Meskin dudes with small businesses around here---the dudes that barely speak English but have 3-4th generation hispanic wives who keep the books and do the client communication----they love the themes that Trump sold and delivered upon.

They are the new, emerging majority.

Buckle up, Mijo!

"they love the themes that Trump sold and delivered upon."

Trump sold them rancid political tacos filled with ---- and aphids.

Dripping with enough cheap-ass hot sauce, they gulped them right down. Political tacos so cheap that they only cost them their integrity. Enjoy the prolonged bouts of MAGAt diarrhea.

When folk rock met jazz... can't believe I ran across an Old Grey Whistle Test episode with the same tour I saw in the early 70's... the first few songs are folk rock, then Tom Scott's jazz fusion sax @ 14 or so min in.
