Seems so clear that it's over now,
Drink your big Black Cow
and get outa' here
It's the light in my eyes
It's perfection and grace
It's the smile on my face
Jan.10 ..... today is Donald's 72nd birthday
Still reelin' strong
"I once had a friend who tried to help me...in a bad way."
I'm cheating here because it's from a pre-Dan demo called "Sun Mountain." But this line is constantly in my head. It says nothing specific but implies a myriad of things about human nature and why relationships are so complicated.
And that is the verse that Walter Becker wrote in 20 minutes or less, after weeks of producer Gary Katz begging him to stop by to help Donald finish the song!
Boz was definitely into them around the time of Silk Degrees, as the backing music testifies. It's like a SD bonus album, in a good way.
"This is the day of the expanding man."
Well, the danger on the rocks is surely past
Still I remain tied to the mast
"Home at Last"
I don't know why, but these lyrics from "Black Cow" were always somewhat arresting to me... reminds me of someone...
In the corner
Of my eye
I saw you in Rudy's
You were very high
You were high
It was a cryin' disgrace
They saw your face
On the counter
By your keys
Was a book of numbers
And your remedies
One of these
Surely will screen out the sorrow
But where are you tomorrow
But I have to give a shout out to the panic stricken lyric from "Kid Charlemagne" - "Is there gas in the car?? Yes there's gas in the caaaar"
"Gaucho" is one of my favorite tunes--not only of theirs, but overall. And I also love the lyrics . . . despite being someone who usually doesn't pay attention to lyrics.
