Story

I answered an add in the newspaper "Blues band looking for lead and slide guitar."I auditioned and got the spot with The Crawdaddy Blues Band.Essentially a trio of Johnny Porter,Terry Brennen, and myself with a revolving door of bassists and drummers and whatnot artists.It was basicly a blues cover band sporting one original song and at my plodding began to write more.You may as well of called this band "The Timebomb."We spent most of our time arguing with eachother although we actually were very close friends yet the whole thing was a firecracker lit at both ends.Yet our sound was authentic Chicago style blues and the originals became somehow infused with country music.Our gigs were legendary and a madhouse.We drove it like a full speed Ferrari into a brick wall.Heavy drinking,after show orgies,you name it.I quit the group three times I know about but then Johhny called me to tell my that Terry had died.So in his honor and remembrence Johnny and I got some sessions together.The tune is really good hardcore blues low down funked out country and I believe it has the finest recorded harmonica solo I have ever heard done by Stagedoor Johnny Porter who is also featured on the lead vocal here.Copyright 1999 John Porter,Rene Labre,The late Terry Brennen (RIP)

Lyrics

I feel low down when you walked through the door, I don't remember your name. You told me before your love was true as gold, but it ain't what you claimed it to be, it's just a shame to say... You babe,ain't what you used to be to me. The sun will still shine as it always did, The world will move the same. And I'll miss you like I always did, cause you always soothed the pain. You babe,you ain't what you used to be...to me. Time passes slow and the booze runs fast from the bottle. And I'll miss you as I always did, but I can't change the sorrow. You babe,you got the best of me...you see.
