ATF: Down 'n' Dirty

This weekly series will include as many of my all-time favorite tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way that your musical tastes can be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions that you might dare to make.  I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



Who Do You Love
George Thorogood and The Destroyers
I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire
I got a cobra snake for a necktie
A brand new house on the road side
And it's a-made out of rattlesnake hide
Got a band new chimney put on top
And it's a-made out of human skull
Come on take a little walk with me baby
And tell me who do you love
Who do you love

Around the town I use a rattlesnake whip
Take it easy baby don't you give me no lip
Who do you love
Who do you love

I've got a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind
I'm just twenty-two and I don't mind dyin’
Who do you love
Yeah who do you love
Ah who do you love

Now Arlene took a-me by my hand
She said Lonesome George you don't understand
Who do you love

The nights were dark and the skies were blue
Down the alleyway a house wagon flew
Hit a bump and somebody screamed
You should've heard just what I'd seen
Who do you love
Who do you love
Yeah who do you love
Ah who do you love

Yeah I've got a tombstone hand and a graveyard mine
Just twenty-two baby I don't mind dyin’
Snakeskin shoes baby put them on your feet
Got the goodtime music and the Bo Diddley beat
Who do you love
Who do you love

I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire
I got a cobra snake for a necktie
A brand new house on the road side
And it's made out of rattlesnake hide
Got a band new chimney put on top
And it's made out of human skull
Come on take a little walk with me child
Tell me who do you love
Yeah who do you love
Who do you love

Straight On
Heart
Quite some time
I’ve been sittin' it out
Didn't take no chances
I was a prisoner of doubt
I knocked down the wailin' wall
Ain't no sin
Got the feel of fortune
Deal me in

Comin' straight on for you
You made my mind
Now I'm stronger
Now I'm comin' through
Straight on
Straight on for you
Straight on for you

Now I know
I got to play my hand
What the winner don't know
A gambler understands
My heart keeps playin' it through
With you my friend
I'll take my chances on you
Again and again
Again

Comin' straight on for you
You made my mind
Now I'm stronger
Now I'm comin' through
Straight on
Straight on for you
Straight on for you

Yeah
For you

Comin' straight on for you
You made my mind
And now I'm stronger
Now I'm comin' through
Straight on
Straight on for you
Straight on
Straight on
Straight on for you
Straight on for you
You made my mind
Now I'm stronger
Now I'm comin' through
Straight on
Straight on for you
Straight on
Straight on
I'm straight on for you
Straight on for you

  7. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Ann!!! If I remember right, I wore out at least two 8-tracks of Dreamboat Annie before I made the switch to cassettes.

  9. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Lee!!! Well, the blues seem appropriate with what we used to believe was our good hospital monstrosity wanting us to pay an extra $2,000 on a bill from 10 months ago. They claim that we did not give them any insurance information at the time, and this is the first we are hearing about it. Now, does that make sense to you?
