Lyrics:

Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Black Betty had a child (Bam-ba-Lam)
The damn thing gone wild (Bam-ba-Lam)
She said, “I’m worryin’ outta mind” (Bam-ba-Lam)
The damn thing gone blind (Bam-ba-Lam)
I said “Oh, Black Betty” (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)

Oh, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
She really gets me high (Bam-ba-Lam)
You know that’s no lie (Bam-ba-Lam)
She’s so rock steady (Bam-ba-Lam)
And she’s always ready (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)

Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
She’s from Birmingham (Bam-ba-Lam)
Way down in Alabam’ (Bam-ba-Lam)
Well, she’s shakin’ that thing (Bam-ba-Lam)
Boy, she makes me sing (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-ba-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty
Bam-ba-lam

CANNED HEAT – Going up The Country 1969

Canned Heat is a blues-rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, in 1965. The group has been noted for its own interpretations of blues material as well as for efforts to promote the interest in this type of music and its original artists. It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, who took the name from Tommy Johnson’s 1928 “Canned Heat Blues”, a song about an alcoholic who had desperately turned to drinking Sterno, generically called “canned heat”. (Sterno Canned Heat is a fuel made from denatured and jellied alcohol.Sterno has long been mixed with water and other liquids to produce a drink called “canned heat”, “squeeze” or “pink lady”). Arriving via helicopter at Woodstock, Canned Heat played their most famous set on the second day of the festival at sunset. The set included “Going Up the Country” which became the title track in the documentary, even though the band’s performance was not shown. The song was included in the first (triple) Woodstock album; while the second album, Woodstock 2, contained “Woodstock Boogie”. “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child” (or simply “Motherless Child”) is a traditional Negro spiritual. The song dates back to the era of slavery in the United States when it was common practice to sell children of slaves away from their parents.Like many traditional songs, it has many variations and has been recorded widely.

Such wonderful memories of the genius-level music of my yoot.

My only regret is that I was just too young to go and see the majority of my heroes when this and others were new, who are my heroes to this day.

Lyrics:

My grandma and your grandma were
Sit-tin’ by the fire. – My grandma told
Your grandma “I’m gonna set your flag on fire.”

Talk-in’ ’bout, Hey now ! Hey now !
I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?. – Jock-a-mo fee na-nay?

Look at my king all dressed in red
I-KO, I-KO, un-day. I betcha five dollars he’ll kill you dead
Jock-a-mo fee na-nay?

Talk-in’ ’bout, Hey now ! Hey now ! I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?. – Jock-a-mo fee na-nay?

My flag boy and your flag boy were
Sit-tin’ by the fire. –
My flag boy told Your flag boy “I’m gonna set your flag on fire.”

Talk-in’ ’bout, Hey now ! Hey now ! I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?. – Jock-a-mo fee na-nay?

See that guy all dressed in green ?
I-KO, I-KO, un-day. He’s not a man
He’s a lov-in’ machine
Jock-a mo fee na-nay?

Talk-in’ ’bout, Hey now ! Hey now ! I-KO, I-KO, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-n?. – Jock-a-mo fee na-n?

Dixie Cups – Iko Iko

Published on Apr 23, 2015

After their hit with “Chapel of Love”, The Dixie Cups went on to release a number of hits including, “People Say” and “You Should Have Seen the Way he Looked at Me”, continuing their success. “Iko Iko” tells the story of a parade collision between the “tribes” of Mardi Gras Indians and the traditional confrontation. The Dixie Cups learned the song from their grandmother singing it. They reached #20 on the US Billboard charts in 1965 with their version. This performance was recorded live at Little Darlin’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Palace, in Kissimmee, Florida.

I love these girls.

I will never forget the time met him. Anniston Alabama..he pulled up in a 1981 El Camino – got out and had that long black jacket that had Embroidering: BLUES INC. 20 minutes later we all were recording he was 10 feet from me… and if you don’t that I was intimidated, you are a dam liar. As I stated, I will never forget him – tremendous individual.

Just spectacular. The beauty knows no bounds.
