Follow Music Friday – Who do you Love?

20 Jul

A summer Friday kicks off with a little crank-it up old-school rock & roll. One of those days where you’re ready to tackle the world with a touch of gritty, mean street attitude. Sometimes you have to just go back to your roots of the music that brought you to where you are  – amazingly enough, seeing George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers is a bucket list band that I have never checked off the list.

Unabashed, throw down guitar and growling vocals with an in-your-face, dare you to cross the street challenge and slightly hidden “let’s get this party started” mentality…….Who do you love? Friday baby, Friday!

Who do you love?
Who do you love?

I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire
I got a cobra snake for a necktie
A brand new house along the roadside
And it’s a made out of rattlesnake hide

It’s got a band new chimney put on top
And it’s a made out of human skull
Come on take a little walk with me baby
And tell me who do you love?

Who do you love?

Now around the town I use a rattlesnake whip
Take it easy baby don’t you give me no lip

Who do you love?
Who do you love?

I’ve got a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind
I’m just twenty-two and I don’t mind dying

Who do you love?
Yeah, who do you love?
Ah, who do you love?

Now Arlene took a me by my hand
She said, “Lonesome George you don’t understand”

Who do you love?

So the night were dark and the sky were blue
Down the alleyway a house wagon flew
Hit a bump and somebody screamed
You should’ve heard what I’d seen

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Yeah, who do you love?
Ah, who do you love?

Yeah, I’ve got a tombstone hand in a graveyard mine
Just twenty-two baby, I don’t mind dying
Snakeskin shoes baby put them on your feet
Got the good time music and the Bo Diddley beat

Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
