    The Devil went down to Georgia
    He was lookin for a soul to steal
    He was in a bind
    'Cause he was way behind
    He was willin to make a deal

    But I like that song...
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Along Came Jones
    The Coasters

    I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2
    A bad gunslinger called Salty Sam was chasin' poor Sweet Sue
    He trapped her in the old sawmill and said with an evil laugh,
    "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
    I'll saw you all in half!"
    And then he grabbed her (and then)
    He tied her up (and then)
    He turned on the bandsaw (and then, and then...!)

    (chorus):
    And then along came Jones
    Tall thin Jones
    Slow-walkin' Jones
    Slow-talkin' Jones
    Along came long, lean, lanky Jones

    Commercial came on, so I got up to get myself a snack
    You should've seen what was goin' on by the time that I got back
    Down in the old abandoned mine, Sweet Sue was havin' fits
    That villain said, "Give me the deed to your ranch
    Or I'll blow you all to bits!"
    And then he grabbed her (and then)
    He tied her up (and then)
    He lit the fuse to the dynamite (and then, and then...!)

    (chorus)

    I got so bugged I turned it off and turned on another show
    But there was the same old shoot-'em-up and the same old rodeo
    Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap sack
    He said, "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
    I'm gonna throw you on the railroad tracks!"
    And then he grabbed her (and then)
    He tied her up (and then)
    He threw her on the railroad tracks (and then)
    A train started comin' (and then, and then...!)

    (chorus
    “Death comes when memories of the past exceed the vision for the future.”

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I use that as the ring tone for Mrs. ofos. She never hears it and it amuses my admin every time she hears it.

    Chet, do you find that you have songs stuck in your head constantly? I was reading a grocery ad and realized that I was barely comprehending anything as "thank you" by My Morning Jacket played away in my head. I haven't listened to that CD in at least a month.

    It's like my brain is playing a soundtrack to my life.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Maister's random post immediately brought to my head:

    Look for the union label
    When you are buying a coat, dress or blouse.
    Remember somewhere our union's sewing
    our wages going to feed the kids and run the house,
    We work hard but who's complaining.
    Thanks to the I.L.G. we're paying our way.
    So, always look for the union label,
    it says we're able
    to make it in the U.S.A.

    sing with me, come on, you remember!

    I am truly sorry for that export. It is not Zman's fault. I have avoided it for a while, but it played full blast at Sunday's Broncos game.

    Association

    So FueledByRamen starts this thread called, "Whats the beef with the association?". Do I think of the APA when I see it? No, my mind fixates on "the association." Now I've got Cherish stuck in my head. Arrrrrrrrrrrgh!

    Cherish is the word I use to describe
    All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
    You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
    You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
    You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
    Mold you into someone who could
    Cherish me as much as I cherish you............

    Please make it stop!!!!

    Hey ofos.....

    Hey, ofos....shake that Texas dust out of your ears, wipe those former Wolverine State eyes, and check out this cool video.....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg_oz...eature=related

    To be honest, I have always liked the tune. It reminds me of somebody from my past that was very special.

    Outta the blue 3 am Sunday driving home after the gig, our guitar player starts singing:

    I was born in the wagon of a travellin show
    My mama used to dance for the money theyd throw
    Papa would do whatever he could
    Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of doctor good

    Chorus
    Gypsys, tramps, and thieves
    Wed hear it from the people of the town
    Theyd call us gypsys, tramps, and thieves
    But every night all the men would come around
    And lay their money down

    Picked up a boy just south of mobile
    Gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal
    I was sixteen, he was twenty-one
    Rode with us to memphis
    And papa woulda shot him if he knew what hed done

    Chorus

    I never had schoolin but he taught me well
    With his smooth southern style
    Three months later Im a gal in trouble
    And I havent seen him for a while, uh-huh
    I havent seen him for a while, uh-huh

    She was born in the wagon of a travellin show
    Her mama had to dance for the money theyd throw
    Grandpad do whatever he could
    Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of doctor good

    because of the "Bailout" bill being floated in DC, I've been humming the Schoolhouse Rock song...

    I'm just a bill
    Yes I'm only a bill
    And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill
    But now I'm stuck in Committee and I sit here and wait








    Come on all you Senators and Congresspeople, stand up and sing along
