You know, Craig, it's true, really. Some videos can take my mind off the music and put it on the singer, and that's not what the singer should want. Mickey's video, Live At The Hermitage, is so haunting, and it's hard to watch, but it's also hard to stop watching. I was hooked (line and sinker) the first time I heard him sing from an LP someone had given me from a radio station. Mickey might not have wanted to be mezmerizing but, in a small way, he was. But, in a good way, you know?

Maybe the first Mickey song I ever learned to play, Craig. Being only about 18, I remember thinking at the time: "This is so Country and I don't think I'm Country; Why do I like it so much?"


-J



Jeff,
When I first heard this song I thought of Buddy Holly and some of the others during that time in music. To me, it just has that feel to it. It also makes me wonder when Mickey wrote it. I have no way of knowing but I am sure someone does.

Craig


I'd like to know when it was written, too.
Those angelic doo-wop harmonies just lift this song to the top.

"Look, I'm shaking
From all that I'm taking
She's tearing me right away from my heart" - "Hand Me Another of Those"

For Texasroyce...




I turned down the covers
On a bed where two lovers
Found reasons to face each new day
In a room filled with memories
In a home built for love
On a street down in Swiss Cottage Place

My mind surrenders as all I remember
Comes to steal the moment away
Yesterdayís gone and where I stand here alone
Is a hollow ringiní place called Today

Last night I watched her as she was boarding
A Greyhound bus back to Saint Lou
I could not let her know that I knew why she was leaviní
Not after all weíd been through
Slippiní my coat from my shoulders I said
ĎHon it may get cold in Saint Lou
And the look in her eyes turned suddenly sad
When she knew I knew what she would do

My mind surrendered as all I remembered
Came to steal the moment away
Yesterdays gone and where I stand alone
Is a hollow ringiní place called today.

Now when I was a boy I was wild I was lazy
I was the shame of my dad
Yes, women and the wine they would drive a man crazy
It was so good to be bad

I got a job running cheap bootleg whiskey
Down the Arkansas line
From Memphis to Pine Bluff in a hopped-up old jimmy
I had to be out of my mind

Well you know the crop by the seeds that are sown
Do all your planting with care
Water and ground will make anything grow
But a weedís still a weed anywhere

I met a girl in a bar down in Memphis
She was the good loviní kind
She told me how she was drawn to the misfits
Trouble was all I did find

Oh when I was a boy I was wild I was lazy
I was the shame of my dad
Well the women and the wine they would drive a man crazy
But it was so good to be bad

As we all know the crop by the seeds that are sown
Do all your planting with care
Water and ground will make anything grow
But a weed is a weed anywhere

Yes we know the crop by the seeds that are sown
Do all your planting with care
Water and ground will make anything grow
But a weedís still a weed anywhere

Sunshine, you may find my window but you wonít find me
Sunshine, I got my friend the darkness here tonight to hide me.
Sunshine, as far as Iím concerned I am where I want to be
Sunshine, as far as youíre concerned donít be concerned for me

She has grown tired of chasiní rainbows
I love her so and God you know I tried
But she was right I am the end
I found the pot but there is no gold inside

So Sunshine, I am not alone donít bother me
Sunshine, pick up your dawn and move on down the street
Sunshine, as far as Iím concerned I am where I want to be
Sunshine, as far as youíre concerned donít be concerned for me

Hand me another Iíll swallow that mother
Soon Iíll be higher than the sun ever rose
Weíve had a showdown and Iím feeling mighty low down
Hand me another of those

Hey there bartender I sure ainít no winner
But I ainít looking for no sympathy
Just some way of forgettiní how long Iíve been lettiní
That woman make a poor fool out of me

Look how Iím shakiní from all that Iím takiní
Sheís teariní me right away from my heart
Hey there bartender no I sure ainít no winner
I know that woman was no good from the start

Hand me another Iíll swallow that mother
Soon Iíll be higher than the sun ever rose
Weíve had a showdown and Iím feeling mighty low down
Hand me another of those

Why donít you hand me another another, another one of those

...for Mamie,


Here's to tomorrow
Here's to today
Here's to whatever I never did say
Here's to old friends who have gone separate ways
Here's to the memories

How I long to be in those East Texas woods
I would be in those old piney woods if I could
On a hot summer mornin' down Centerville Way
the windows rolled down in my old Chevrolet

Cruisin' the backroads with nothin' but time
three nickels short of having a dime
miles from the highway, no hill left to climb
Me and the whisperin' pine

You remember the old town here yesterday?
The walk from the Ryman to the Linebaugh Cafe?
we would stop in at Tootsie's and Tubb's on the way
And slowly head East down First and Broadway.........

..I remember..

I want you to know not a day passes by
I donít find myself thinking of you
I wonder and worry how youíre gettiní by
I know what you have gone through

Friends say youíre liviní like thereís no tomorrow
They say youíre in sure need of help
I know you have more than your share of sorrow
So darliní take care of yourself

Oh Darliní donít light a fire in the wind
When itís blowiní there is no place to go
Out of control it will burn like a forest
Where itís been nothiní will grow

Nobody loves you as much as I love you
I will always be wishing you well
I know you have more than your share of sorrow
So darliní take care of yourself.

My itís been a long long time
Funny things I have treasured in my mind
Are like the closiní of a door
It donít matter anymore

All the friends I thought I knew
They dwindle down now to a precious few
Feel like an aging L.A. whore
It donít matter anymore

Takiní it in watchiní a willow freely
Bend in the wind turning so ever slowly
Into the end honey donít no one know me
Not the way you do

Oh itís been a long long time
Funny thing how you could always read my mind
Turn out the lights and close the door
It donít matter anymore

One of my all time favorites Craig.
Ain't it the truth...

The older I get, the more I understand where Mick was coming from the night he wrote that song.

It don't matter anymore

[only the memories linger]

Still have that memory of Mickey and Susan's home by the river where they lived from 1974 to 1994.

It don't matter anymore

People tell me how the time has changed
I tell them nothing stays the same
They smile and walk away
I donít know what they wanted me to say

Iíve been up and Iíve been down
Turned on turned out and turned around
I have been lost but thatís all over now
Hope remains only God knows how

It is time for me to lay it down
Close the door and never turn around
All the good in life is free
All I have paid for was not good for me

Friends all tell me how much I have changed
I tell them no one stays the same
They turn and walk away
I donít know what they wanted me to say

Autumn leaves the trees all burning red
Winter gently lays her seeds to bed
But life remains a mystery
What does a forest have to do with you and me

I was almost 30 going on 14
Hocked my gold watch and bought some blue jeans
Jumped a slow freight train to Alabam
Told my junkie friends in Milwaukee
For the last time friends you will see me
I am headed south to find out where I am
It is light when you wake up wiped out
Turnkey tried to knock my lights out
Someone yelled jailbreak in the block

Thirteen years of losiní
Lord Iím tired of booziní
I found out now where I am
Is where itís not

Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail
Care of Marble Eyes Small
In the Monroe County Jail

Yes I know I done you wrong girl
But you know I done it well
Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail

Workiní in a coal mine
I donít need no shoe shine
Shoe shine in a coal mine
Is just a waste of good time
One time one ainít two you
Two time timing you
Who do you think youíre fooliní
Your heels need some cooliní
Girl Iíve got a good mind
Just to blow you out of my mind

Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail
Care of Marble Eyes Small
In the Monroe County Jail

Yes I know I done you wrong girl
But you know I done it well
Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail

Hit the street sleet
Beat around my feet beat beat
I had someone to meet treat
Treat or trick or treat heat
I find youíre goiní my way
And I mind you blowing my day
Who do you think youíre fooliní
Your heels need some cooliní
Girl Iíve got a good mind
Just to throw you out of my mind.

Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail
Care of Marble Eyes Small
In the Monroe County Jail

Yes I know I done you wrong girl
But you know I done it well
Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail

Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail
Care of Marble Eyes Small
In the Monroe County Jail

Yes I know I done you wrong girl
But you know I done it well
Why donít you send me some money
Mama for to go my bail

I can't imagine how much fun Mickey had doing this song!

Great song Craig,
I heard this song for the first time back in 1974.

can't decide which track I love the best
from the whole album.

If you see her.......got a lot of air-play back then.
If I could be.......an outstanding song.
Yesterday's gone......sends goosebumps down your spine.
Love Look[at us now].......another gem.

nope,can't decide which one I love the most.

impossible.
