'Scuse me for livin'

Nice New Orleans vibe on the drums by Aaron Thurston. Great solo by Roy. If the "Blue Idiots" had stayed together we would've followed this acoustic blues sound.


Listen here:


Well if you make it down to Tennessee Can you kiss a pretty girl for me She said she’d meet me by the side of the river Wearing nothing but what God give her

Well she made me a hat of straw I wore it all the way through Arkansas But it fell apart in Carolina Then it was out of sight and out of mind yeah

Well I’ve looked good and I’ve looked hard I’ve been a man and I’ve been a dog Been all those thirsty things So ‘scuse me for livin’

Well I made fast work getting out of that rut Cause even your alarm clock hated my guts And I made it out of there before I met the business end of a 2x4

But sometimes I miss you baby Sometimes I miss you on nights like this Sometimes I miss you wishing On all the stars of West Texas

Well I’ve looked good and I’ve looked hard I’ve been a man and I’ve been a dog Been all those lucky things So ‘scuse me for livin’

Have you heard about rain clouds baby? Well they move in from off the coast I know all about rain clouds baby And I look like I’ve just seen a ghost

So if you make it down to Tennessee Can you kiss that pretty girl for me? And if you make to the end of the block Well buddy you’ll be standing in my spot
