Align:    
  • He was drinkin' that milk
  • With that Dewar's Whiskey
  • Said John,
  • There's nothin'
  • Written anywhere
  • Suggests the blues
  • Will set you free
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • I was ridin'
  • In the back seat,
  • With Sonny Terry
  • Little harmonica player
  • Used to drive him around
  • I think his name was Harry
  • Tried to get him to eat tofu,
  • Raw vegetables, nuts,
  • And berries
  • But Sonny
  • Wasn't havin' any of it
  • He let me share a room with 'em
  • For a couple of weeks
  • Sonny slept with his good eye
  • Open staring out
  • From under the sheets
  • I was young and uncomfortable
  • I don't mind tellin' ya
  • Kinda gave me the creeps
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • Don't know what was
  • So good about 'em
  • I played practically free
  • I had nothin'
  • To live up to
  • Everywhere to be
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • On some dates
  • With Mose Allison
  • Somewhere out in the Midwest
  • Said some of my lyrics
  • Reminded him
  • Of the poet Kenneth Patchen
  • I took it as a compliment
  • He was referring to the line
  • About wearin' neon signs
  • On your wounds
  • Later on
  • I knew what he meant
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • On a date
  • With John Lee Hooker
  • At a packed
  • Joint up in Washington
  • He came in
  • With a gorgeous woman
  • On each arm
  • As I was singing my song
  • Walked 'em right up
  • And sat 'em
  • On the edge of the stage
  • As I went singing along
  • And that's called
  • "evenin' son,
  • I'm the headliner"
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • I don't know what was
  • So great about 'em
  • I played practically free
  • But I had nothing
  • To live up to
  • And everywhere to be
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • Played a gig
  • With John Hammond Jr.
  • Up in Vancouver BC
  • Exotic dancer came
  • In my dressing room,
  • Started dancing exotically
  • They were smoking something
  • In the audience that night,
  • Smelled exactly like cat pee
  • Old days are comin' back to me
  • Opened up a gig
  • For Gatemouth Brown
  • Down in Baton Rouge
  • He was playing
  • That Hillbilly, Jazz,
  • Cajun, Country
  • Zydeco, and Blues
  • Throwin' it
  • Out past the walls
  • Like some kind
  • Of musical centrifuge
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • I don't know what was
  • So good about 'em
  • I played practically free
  • But I had nothin'
  • To live up to
  • Everywhere to be
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • I don't know what was
  • So great about 'em
  • I played practically free
  • But I had nothin'
  • To live up to
  • Everywhere to be
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
  • Old days
  • Are comin' back to me
