Whatever I want Wednesday!

I don't intend my "whatever I want Wednesdays" to be music-based, but they just seem that way the past couple of weeks. Maybe I'll summon up a good rant or some stupid, corny jokes next time. Maybe not, because I'm going to a concert next Wednesday, and I'll have to share my excitement.

"Lido Shuffle"
Boz Scaggs

This is an ooooooold video. Enjoy!



And since none of us knows all the lyrics, here they are for our education. I hope these are accurate. Like I said, though, it's not like we know the lyrics.

"Lido Shuffle"
Lido missed the boat
That day he left the shack
But that was all he missed
He ain't comin' back

At a tombstone bar
In a juke-joint car he made a stop
Just long enough
To grab a handle off the top
Next stop Chi'town
Lido put the money down
Let her roll
He say, "one more job oughta get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it"

One for the road

Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh....
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's a-waitin' for another go
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh....
He said, "one more job oughta get it"
"One last shot, we quit it"
"One more for the road"

Lido be runnin',
Havin' great big fun 'til he got the note
Sayin' "toe the line or blow it"
And that was all she wrote
He be makin' like a beeline,
Headin' for the borderline, goin' for broke
Sayin, "one more hit oughta do it"
"This joint, ain't nothin' to it"
"One more for the road"

Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh....
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's a-waitin' for another go
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh....
"one more job oughta get it"
"One last shot, and we quit it"
"One more for the road"

Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh....
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's a-waitin' for another go
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh....

Great song, one of the classics of the 70s. This is one of the first tunes I loaded onto my MP3 player.

Still don't know what the heck it means, though.

I was younger! Nanner! (At least I can still say that to someone.)

I loooove that song! Even if I was like, a zygote when it came out. My mom raised me on the best tunes though, and that one is still something I listen to every day or so. Great choice.
