Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

J.J. with today's meme...


I ain't high on cocaine
I don't need the pain
It's bad for your brain and that's true
I ain't droppin' no names
I ain't playin' no games
I'm just one step ahead of the blues
One step ahead of the blues
From Memphis to Reno
From New York to Tokyo
I tried to come through for you

I won't do you in
I ain't no fairweather friend
I'm just one step ahead of the blues
One step ahead of the blues
(full lyrics here)
 Yup.  That would be us... one step ahead o' the blues.  We've kinda-sorta been that way all our life.

  1. Cale was one of the great underrated artists of our time. It's hard to find a spot on any of his records where dropping the needle won't find superb songwriting.

    1. And superb guitar playing, too.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
