TB Blues...
    #1576651 - 05/25/03 06:46 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

T.B. Blues
Jimmy Rogers

My good gal is trying to make a fool out o' me
Trying to make me believe I've got that old TB
I've got the TB blues

When it rained down sorrow, it rained all over me
'Cause my body rattles like a train on that old SP
I've got the TB blues

I've got that old TB, I can't eat a bit
Got me worried so, I can't even sleep at night
I've got the TB blues

I've been fighting like a lion, looks like I'm goin' to loose
I am fighting like a lion, looks like I'm goin' to loose
'Cause ain't nobody ever with the TB blues
I've got the TB blues

Gee, but the graveyard is a lonesome place
Lord, that old graveyard is a lonesome place
That put you on your back, throw that mud down in your face
I've got the TB blues


Jimmy Rogers died of TB in his mid-thirties. I only think about it because sometimes my lungs are so fucked, up after everything I've done to myself over the past two decades, that I feel like I'm dying of TB or Consumption, which might have been cool if I was a honky-tonk singer in the thirties... :wink:

Don't worry, I'm fine! I don't know why I brought it up. Just rambling, I guess, and I was listening to some old Jimmy Rogers recordings. Didn't meant to be a bummer. Go back to your posting. Have fun! :laugh:

8.6.82
Beck

It's August 6th 1982
Rockin' uhh
And ummm
We're jammin' over at the house
My pants
My pants caught on fire
We're smokin' a lotta
Whiskey and uh chicken
Mmm and uh got some food and uh
I got some food 'n' came home and got a call
No wait, I got...I got some calls, then I came home, then I got some food
Came home, got some food, and then [koff koff] I got some calls...uhhh
Couldn't find the fridge for a while
Wait first we couldn't...we got the food...and then...no wait...
First we...we had the fridge


...could be worse :smile:

I dig Beck. He's cool! :cool:

Waiting For A Train
Jimmy Rogers

All around the water tank, waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home, sleeping in the rain
I walked up to a brakeman to give him a line of talk
He says: If you?ve got money, I?ll see that you don?t walk
I haven?t got a nickel, not a penny can I show
He said: Get off, you railroad bum and slammed the boxcar door

He put me off in Texas, a place I surely love
Wide open spaces ?round me, the moon and stars above
Nobody seems to want me or lend me a helping hand
I?m on my way from Frisco, goin? back to Dixie Land
My pocket book is empty and my heart is filled with pain
I?m a 1000 miles away from home just waiting for a train

Waiting For A Train
Beck

Spoken: I'm an alien from another sphere.
The thing I like about the Earth is the range of colors:
Fantastic to mundane,
Brilliant to dull.
As I was penetrating ozone,
I perchanced to notice to notice the orange peel like quality of the light playing upon the s... the
ocean.
I gotta go right now.
Someone is videotaping me in my spaceship.

All around the water tank
Just a-waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Just a-waitin for 'n to rain

I walked up to a brakeman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said, "If you got money,
I'll see that you don't walk"

I haven't got a nickle
Not a penny for to show
"Get off, get off, you railroad bum"
And he slammed the boxcar door

Well let me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
The moon and stars above me
And what else?

The first time I heard Jimmy Rogers' original I went nuts. I didn't realize beck was doing covers of old country... he references so many places musically. Maybe I'll go track down some old Rogers LP's.

Ha Ha! He re-wrote Jimmy Rogers! :cool:

What album is that from? I might get it!

This one's for people who think gangsta rap is some kind of new thing... :wink:

Gamblin' Bar Room Blues
Jimmy Rogers

Hoho-heyhey, the gamblin' bar room blues

I went down to the corner just to meet my gal
I found her standin' on the sidewalk talkin' to my pal

I stroke back to the bar room to get another drink of gin
But the first thing I knew I was reelin', rockin' and drunk a gin

I kept drinkin' gin and liquor 'till way ...
When my pal walked into the bar room we had an awfull fight

I reached down for my razor, and then we knocked around
But when I pulled my pistol I quickly smoked him down

Heyhee-heyho, ho-hoohoo
Hoo-oo-hoo-oo, hoo-ho, ho-hey-ho

I went down to see my baby, and met her on the way
I told her I'd have to leave her, I told her I could not stay

I started down to the station and stopped in at the bar
There I met a policeman ridin' in a motor car

We both drank lots of liquor, that flatfooted cop and I
I thought he would never leave me, Lord, I thought I die

My baby came in to join us, and then it began to rain
Then I had to hurry-hurry to catch that midnight train

I laid my head in the bar room door, I 'll never get drunk anymore
I pawn my watch and my golden chain, I pawn my baby's diamond ring

Police, police, police, you're just as drunk as me
I'll grab that old eight-wheeler and make for the deep blue sea

see you shouldn't have said anything.. I thought you were just being really witty when you posted waiting for a train. :wink:

Both of those tracks are on Stereopathetic Soul Manure. Its the only beck album I listen to any more really. I think you'd definately enjoy it considering your sense of humor.. 

(edit: oops, forgot to counter with a beck song from the album.. here's another lungcentric lyric)

Modesto
Beck

You came
You went
My mind it got a dent
I couldn't make my rent
Cause all my cash was lent
This town is filled
With thousand dollar bills
Lamenated songs
Contaminated lungs

Well we read about it 15 times a day
Staring through a bag of Frito Lay
And I play with the fire and the stove
When my eyes peel out
And my finger tips get cold

Well it's real and it's fake
And it's flaming like a snake
And she's putting out my face,
With the rake

Oh honey you knew,
That you where my one and only blur
Unglued, depressed
Your meatloaf in my chest
Personality test
I failed with the best

Well I stomped
And I stormed
I passed out in your dorm
When you hustled me outside
I couldn't catch a ride
Let the subway trains speak to me now
I browsing through the supermarket town
And the girls don't talk when I'm around
And I'm feeling bad even though nothing's wrong
Choking on a breath mint

If you like updated old country, folk, and honk-tonk, I suggest you look into Mike Ness' (from Social Distorion) second solo album, "Under the Influences." Cow Punk -- It's really cool!

I have a couple of Beck albums, but I think the one you mentioned is the one I really want, but haven't bought yet. Maybe I'll get it next week, when I'm going shopping for some Smoking Popes CDs... :laugh:

All I Can Do Is Cry
Wayne Walker (as performed by Mike Ness)

Left my girl in Kansas City
Left her crying in the rain
Well, I told her that I made my mind up
I didn't want to see her again

What makes the night so lonely?
What makes the night so long?
Well, I guess it's just because I'm a man
That's done a good woman wrong

I can't eat, I can't sleep
All I can do is cry
All I can do is cry

Told her that she was a trifler
Told her that she played around
But I was just a lyin' man
Trying to hide the tracks she'd found

Gonna catch myself a flyer
One that's Kansas City bound
I'm goin' looking for my baby
Good Lord, I hope she's still around

I can't eat, I can't sleep
All I can do is cry
All I can do is cry


 
^^^^^ Cool guitar with a '50s style pin-up girl decal and an autograph by Buck Owens! :cool:

Cool! I'll check it out, I've just about worn out my collection. On my way to the fields this morning they had some great meth fiend truck drivin' punkabilly stuff on one of the college radio stations.. perfect for a sunday morning..

I'd post another song but I'm too tired and it'd be too much effort to think, so I think you get the last word there :smile: Thanks for all the recommendations!
