One Man Band



It isn't often that I catch a plaintive refrain from a Jimmy Reed song wafting into my backyard. Over at the car show (a summer ritual in our town) this young man was faithfully recreating various primitive blues and rockabilly tunes, playing for tips:
Got me running, got me hiding,
Got me run, hide, hide, run anyway you want to
let it roll
yeah, yeah, yeah
You got me doin' what you want me
So baby what you want me to do?

Going up, going down
Got me up, down, down, up, anyway you want to
let it roll
yeah, yeah, yeah
You got me doin' what you want me
So baby what you want me to do?

Got me beeping, got me hiding
Got me beep, hide, beep, hide, anyway you want to
let it roll
yeah, yeah, yeah
You got me doin' what you want me
So baby what you want me to do?


Sometimes you find redemption in the oddest places.

By Professor Batty
