Description
I have read that this song goes all the way back to the turn of the century and got it's start in vaudville. If so I am sure it was in a much different form. I learned it from the Lovin Spoonful who got it from the black Memphis jug bands. In an effort to make it more contemporary, I have rewritten a lot of the lyrics and unintentionally probably changed the melody some too. Hope you enjoy in the spirit it is offered up. Fun and humor!

Lyrics
Well a rich gal, she'll drink that Wild Turkey
And a poor gal will drink Jim Beam
But my gal she's drinkin old shoe polish
And she gets drunk just the same

(Chorus:)
Well I'll be there in the morning if I live
I'll be there in the morning if I don't get killed
If I never, no more see you again
Be sure to remember me

Well a rich gal will ride in a Mercedes Benz
And a poor gal will be in a Ford
But my gal is walking all over town
With her thumb out and a very short skirt

A rich gal when she's fighting, she'll bop you with a stick
And a poor gal will hit you with a rock
But my gal has a rusty old razor
And she'll run you all over town

(Chorus)


Well a rich gal willl kiss you, she'll kiss you real nice
Poor gal she do quite the same
But my gal she'll lay one right on you
And you'll pass out before she's through
(Chorus)

Great to hear

Enjoy your phrasing here. Enjoy that soul bronco blues style, the almost Hank Williams jr souful singing and the list continues.

Thanks for sharing !
Interesting words here.

Old Songs
Hey Bill, good to hear from you! Yeah, you know how I like those old songs. Hell I even liked old songs when I was young. Keep thinking that I am going to come up with a more polished sound one of these days but it will probably never happen. Glad I have a few fans like you that enjoy what I do have.

long time..
This vintage Tom Bronco hits the spot, glad to hear from you again. nice harp work, too

production note - the balance dwells on the left, then bleeds to the right every once in a while?

Jammin
Hey Feter,

Yeah I like jammin more than I do recording and it probably shows in my posts. There is just something so great about making up a solo as you go or even improvising lyrics. And then there is the give and take between the people you jam with. Lots of fun! I'm afraid I view recording as more like work although the end product is sometimes enjoyable.

Great Folk
This reminds me of a guy I used to record in my old studio. It's amazing what can be accomplished with only guitar, vocals, and a harmonica.
Nice post
