What is "Jelly Roll'?
    #2708421 - 05/20/04 11:17 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Is it some old school hippy slang that I'm too young to understand?  I've heard it mentioned in at least two songs.  What are they refering to?

From Grateful Dead's Dupree's Diamond Blues:

"Well, baby baby wants a gold diamond ring,
Wants it more than any old thing,
Well when I get those jelly-roll blues,
Why I go and get anything in this world for you."

From Van Morrison's And It Stoned Me:

"And it stoned my to my soul
It stoned me just like jelly roll
And it stoned me"

:confused:

Yeah that could be. I'd guess that both Grateful Dead and Van Morrison were heavily influenced by jazz.

and jazz musicians smoked plenty of pot, before it turned into classical music at least...

I think we should start calling potheads (ourselves?) "vipers" again (for the hissing sound, i guess) - it just sounds so cool - old jazz lingo

I dont know if this has anything to do with it,but back in high school I played the set in Jazz Band,and we played a song called Jelly Roll.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

Wow thanks Pillow. I thought in the back of my head that maybe it was refering to pussy. Now I know. And jelly roll can certainly stone a man.
