Thanks Shag,
I am downloading some of The Band while i post....[dial up ]

This game is: I post some obscure lyrics and whoever can get the song,withut using the computer,then gets to post a lyric question...but ya' gotta be honest..no computers for your old failed memory

I googled the lyrics just to see if I'd recognize the band or song. Never heard of them. Maybe if I heard the song it would be familiar. I won't ruin it for others. It's prolly somone's favorite tune so they deserve to nail it.

Doug,
It was early 60's so you are too young to remember the earlier years of rock and roll .
Thanks for not giving it away...anyone worth his salt who is old enough [ I am 58 ] should know this one...once we get a winner ,he or she can post an old time or not so old time...but you better be good and you'd better be difficult cause theres lots of people out here who are very good at this ..no doubt many are sleeping
RIPLEY

Okay, no fair looking this up online,
and because the song is known by several titles...

Oh the smartest clipper you can find,
Oh hey, oh ho, are you 'most done?
Is the Margot Evans of the Black Ball line...

...never mind the title, just supply the next line.


(And if you'll offer me a glass of rum I'll be happy to sing the first four verses...)

Give me the rum and I won't sing it. Clear away the track and let the bullgine run.

Don't know who wrote it, but I think that Judy Collins recorded it about a hundred years ago.

Someone must have watched Jeopardy last night to have come up with the posted question. One of the categories was name the song that the lyrics were from.

Well done, Harbormaster.
Now, for our Grand Prize...
What is a BULLGINE...?

(And about that glass of rum... it's probably best that neither of us sing in public.)

From the early 70's. Name the song:

Well I won't be back to Woodstock for a while
Though I long to see that lonesome hippie smile
I'm a million miles away from that helicopter day
And I don't believe I'll be going back that way

Hi Basil,
I don't have t.v. available to me and when I did I stopped watching jeopardy cause I find it boring..I usually get about 85-90 % right..
Nope ,I just thought it was a good question and there seems to be quite a strong following here for music.

Who is next ?

Gene,
troutman mentioned the title in post 13 but he also mentioned yu tube...if he used you tube to find the answer then he loses and you are the winner !!

Hey Troutman,
Not questioning your integrity,,,just your reference to you tube.

Congrats ...I was 10 in 1961 when this song came out ..I remember it as if it was yesterday !.Only last night I was watching a concert on you tube of all gene pitney's stuff ..
He died on stage in England summer of 2006...Finished his show,the curtain came down and he laid down on the floor of the stage and was dead ...he was getting up there,but I guess we all are

Thanks
RIP
Can you come up with a good one ?????

Easy. Neil Young - "Roll Another Number (For the Road)" from 'Tonight's the Night"

How about this one:

We sleep by the ever-bright hole in the door,
Eat in the corner,
Talk to the floor.
Cheating the spiders that come to say "Please"
(Politely) they bend at the knees

Well I'll go to the foot of our stairs.

Bah... I would have at least got the song title if you hadn't specified '60s. LOL.. I'm only familiar with Brian Setzer's version.

Whilst we are at it, does anyone know this:
'I'd go ta hell for ya,
or even Philadelphia....'
I reckon its a show tune; any clues?
