I Now Pronounce You

You Show Up On My Doorstep, Honey Drippin’ From Your Mouth

Posted in Uncategorized by inowpronounceyou on October 5, 2007

Enough of the …whatever. We’re on the verge of a 3 day weekend, folks! So, today I’m going back to my blog. And, I did something nice for myself. You should do something nice for yourself, too.

Those of you that know me, or have been reading for a bit, know that few things in this world make me as happy as great music. Genres be damned; if you rock, you rock. Straight up. And there are few bands today, in my humble opinion, that rock quite as hard or quite as well as Govt Mule.

I first heard about the Mule back in the 90’s from my buddy, Soundboard. He’s an engineer of some note having worked for years and years with the Allman Bros., Dickey Betts, and others. I’d hear all kinds of great stories from him when he’d come off the road. Crazy stories. But more than that, I’d hear some killer tapes of live shows where he’d worked the booth.

So, when he let me know that Warren Haynes and Allen Woody from the Bros. were playing these killer sets as a side band, I just had to check it out. He popped in a DAT and that was that…

I’ve been hooked ever since.

Friday and Saturday, October 12th and 13th, the Mule is back in DC. I’ve seen them every time they’ve come to the 930 and it’s been nothing but jaw dropping set after jaw dropping set. If you want to break out of the shoegazer “oh it’s so hard to get my hair gel right and isn’t it sad that no one likes me” music scene, and you want to get in to some hard drinkin’ hard livin’ old school knock back a shot of whisky and turn your amp up loud blues ROCK…

Then I suggest you get your tickets now.

I’ll be there on Saturday night. Grinnin’ from ear to ear.

    Have fun! I’m taking Jemma to a stripclub for her birthday that night. Otherwise, I would definitely be there.

    And FYI – expect an email from me soon re: a little get-together within the next few weeks.

    by Warren Haynes
    Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

    Babies were crying before you got here
    I believe they’re crying still
    The world as we know it keeps right on turning
    I guess it always will

    Still something’s changed – I hate to admit it
    I ain’t been the same since you came around
    My mind is swollen from the weariness
    Wish you never flagged me down

    Twisted angel, cast out of some strange heaven
    Sent down here to pull me out of my shell
    You show up on my doorstep – honey dripping from your mouth
    Like some slackjaw Jezebel

    Flesh and bones is all we’re made of
    I couldn’t have stopped you if I tried
    The spell you were casting – way too heavy
    Now I can’t be satisfied

    But you think you’re going to save me – you better think again
    I’ve had saviors galore
    Although you are a vision – an angel wrapped in sin
    I’ve seen it all before

    Twisted angel
    Cast out of some strange heaven
    Sent down here, landed on my window sill
    Now you walking through my backdoor – honey dripping from your mouth
    Like some slackjaw Jezebel

    You’ve got your bag of dust and you’re divining rod
    I wonder how I got myself here
    Wheel’s spinning faster
    And I know I got to jump off
    I guess I’m weighing the fire against the fear

    You spoon-fed my ego – made me feel so young
    Kissed me ’til my lips were sore
    I know you’re just a Jezebel with a poisonous tongue
    I’ve been down this road before

    It’s full of twisted angels
    Cast out of some strange heaven
    Sent down here to put me through Hell
    You show up on my doorstep – honey dripping from your mouth
    Like some slackjaw Jezebel
    Oh, like some slackjaw Jezebel

    Warren sings front door instead of back door in the live setting.
