lyrics

Lyrics from music I've been listening to in the last week....

"I got to keep my eyes open
So I can see the Lord
I'm gonna watch the horizon
For a brand new Ford"

"Jesus Gonna be Here" Tom Waits sung by Pearly Black with Trevor Hart and John Rodgers last night at the Brewery in Brisbane.

"...so hush little baby don't you cry"
"Summertime" from Porgy and Bess sung by Trevor one morning

"Well who's gonna shoe your
pretty little foot
Who's gonna glove your hand
Who's gonna kiss your ruby red lips
And who's gonna be your man?"

"Ruben" the Be Good Tanyas during dinner.

"So grab your bucket grab your spade
We're heading down to Half Moon Bay"

"The Wine Song" The Cat Empire. Fizzy D's best dancing music.

"Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
Oh I'd still be on my feet"

Joni Mitchel "A Case of You" We listen to this all the time. It's from the "Blue" album.

"Raindrops on roses
and whiskers on kittens"

"My Favourite Things" The John Coltrane version not the Julie Andrews one. (although I love Julie Andrews)

I'm a John Rodgers fan and don't know how I missed this gig... I'm sure it was pretty cool!

If you go to the Bowery for the next 2 Tuesdays Trevor Hart is doing a gig with Alison St Ledger and John Rodgers.

Thanks for the tip re the Bowery but I'm afraid I missed the gigs. Haven't seen Trevor play before but I recently acquired his album Amantes which is fantastic. I agree with Rebecca-the-wrecker: you enjoy their music and you want to go back for more without them thinking that you are stalking them...
