Dec. 18, 2006 - Four Strong Winds

Four Strong Winds

sutterzmill_iansylvia.jpg

Four strong winds that blow lonely, Seven seas that run high,
All these things that don't change, Come what may.
But our good times are all gone, And I'm bound for moving on.
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way. Think I'll go out to Alberta,
Weather's good there in the fall. Got some friends that I can go to working for,
Still I wish you'd change your mind If I asked you one more time,
But we've been through that a hundred times or more.
If I get there before the snow flies, And if things are going good,
You could meet me if I send you down the fare. But if you wait until it's winter,
It will be no good 'Cause that wind sure can blow way out there.
-Ian Tyson

Dec. 7, 2006 - Sometimes it's hard to believe it's real

Fifteen Days Under The Hood


Well this life is one big automobile
Fifteen days under the hood
Sometimes it's hard to believe it's real
Fifteen days under the hood
Well I'm way down here with my feet in the air
I got grease and oil all in my hair
It's getting so bad, I'm starting to swear

Fifteen days under the hood

Well I'm awful hungry I wish I had some beans
Fifteen days under the hood
I spent all but a dollar on valvoline

sutterzmill_Valvol.gif

Fifteen days under the hood


I'm lucky I saved a buck to get something to eat
Too bad I'll spend it later
On wheel bearing grease
A cop just told me to get my car
Off the street,

fifteen days under the hood

Well I went downstairs I put on my good pants
To go to the junkyard for a vacuum advance
I was just climbin' into this shirt
When I remembered I couldn’t go
Because my car don’t work

Let me tell you friends what's wrong with me

Fifteen days under the hood

I just dropped the crank shaft on my knee
Fifteen days under the hood
I got water in my oil and the london flu
Burnt valves, vapor lock, worn brake shoes
I got those dead-battery-broken-fan-belt blues
Fifteen days under the hood

Well I'm trying to get this accelerator cable free
Fifteen days under the hood
Andy Granatelli's on the radio for S.T.P.

Fifteen days under the hood


I’m looking for the flashlight for the timing chain
I just skinned my knuckles and I'm in great pain
It's awful cold and it's starting to rain
Fifteen days under the hood

Oct. 15, 2006 - Crooked Judge

- Crooked Judge -

sutterzmill_mdr.jpg

Paid my money to a crooked judge
Set out to find an honest man

sutterzmill_lincoln.jpg   sutterzmill_nelson_linc.jpg

That's how I came to be in Boston  Looking like I am

 

If by now we stop to sleep
We can't make no midnight creep
Only time can ever say
Pack my cat and haul away

sutterzmill_topcat.jpg

Rained all night and it rained all day
Rain come floated my house away
Didn't it rain oh didn't it rain?
Didn't it rain that day!

sutterzmill_FloatHouse.jpg

If by now we step by, then
Someday we may meet again
Run down high, look down low
Call the Captain up from the hole

sutterzmill_CAPTOAST.jpg
Captain Toast


I was down in some low dive
Talkin' all the usual jive
Like: Say Buddy gimme five
I ain't drunk enough to drive

sutterzmill_gavel_e0.gif

Wipe that grin right off your face
Before I throw you through the wall
No one needs a wise guy, Jack
Specially one don't check his facts

sutterzmill_wiseguys.gif

If by now we step by, then
Someday we may meet again
Who cares what you have to say?
Even this too shall pass away

sutterzmill_nelson_hunter.jpg

Pass away, pass away
Even this too shall pass away
Hey, hey, crooked judge
Even this too shall pass away
Even this too shall pass away

"crooked judge"

 Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: David Nelson
