WE RECORDED THIS SONG IN THE CHARACTER OF OUR ALTER-EGO "THE COTTONPICKERS" AND RELEASED IT TO SECONDARY BROADCAST TOP-40 RADIO IN THE YEAR 2000. THE PURPOSE OF DOING IT WAS TO BENEFIT CHILDREN'S CANCER RESEARCH AT ST. JUDES CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL IN MEMPHIS.TENNESSEE. THIS POINT WAS TOTALLY MISSUNDERSTOOD BY RADIO STATIONS WHO DISMISSED IT AS A JOKE. THIS THUNDERING VERSION STILL STANDS UP TODAY AND IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS ON BEHALF OF ALL OF US THAT THE DRUMMER ON THIS SESSION, MISSISSIPPI CHRIS KIDD WOULD FALL VICTIM TO THROAT CANCER HIMSELF. THIS SONG IS IN TRIBUTE TO HIM AND AGAIN, ALL OF THE PROCEEDS OF SALES OF THIS CD SHALL GO TO THE ST. JUDES CHILDRENS HOSPITAL. IF THIS TUNE STRIKES YOUR FANCY GO TO OUR PRODUCTS LINK WHICH WILL TAKE YOU TO CD BABY AND YOU CAN DO YOUR PART AND CONTRIBUTE TO THIS CAUSE. THERE ARE A LOT OF VERY BRAVE LITTLE KIDS WHO WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.ALSO THIS SONG DELIVERS A BLUES VOCAL ASS-WHOOPING FROM DEWY ELLIS..IF YOU CAN'T FEEL WHAT SHE IS SINGING YOU ARE TOTALLy INSENSITIVE TOWARDS LIFE.YEAH LEAVE THE SITE IMMEDIATLY.ONE THING I HATE TO DO IS PERFORM FOR THESE MEMBERS OF "SECRET SOCIETIES" WHO ARE GAY MEN WITH A LOT OF MONEY WHO HAVE PROSTITUES IN TOW AND THE LADIES ARE DIGGING WHAT WE ARE DOING AND THESE MEN LOOK AT US WITH THEIR SERIOUS FROWNS OF DISAPPROVAL AND JEALOUSY,THEY TOODIG IT BUT CANNOT STAND TO SEE SOMEONE ELSE ROCK OUT!pEOPLE WHO HAVE PAID THEIR DUES TO DO IT.YOU GUYS ARE A REAL TURN OFF TO PERFORM FOR.YOU HAVE ALL OF THE MONEY YET YOU ARE INSECURE.I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO CONSIDER YOUR UPTIGHT POSITION.YOU HAVE SO MUCH AND ARE UNHAPPY WITH ALL OF IT.-I SAY YOUR PROBLEM AND NOT MINE.

Well since my baby left me,
I found a new place to dwell.
It’s down at the end of lonely street,
called heartbreak hotel.

I am so lonely baby, I am so lonely I just cry.

The joint be always crowded,
I still can find some room.
I’m a brokenhearted lover
crying in my gloom. (repeat chorus)

The desk clerks tears keep flowing,
the bell hop’s dressed in black.
They’ve been so long on lonely street
they are never coming back. (repeat chorus)

So if your baby leaves you,
And you got a tale to tell.
Just take a walk down lonely street
to the heartbreak hotel.

You’ll be so lonely baby, you’ll be so lonely you’ll just cry

Yes your gonna cry, yes now I’m crying, come on down here and cry.
Did she tell you goodbye? I know it’s all my fault so I’m confessing the blues.
Oh help me LORD! Well I am right here with you Rene, and my tears are flowing
all night long, tell me, are you there Rene? Yes I am stuck here at the heartbreak
hotel, with the cockroaches and the spiders. Oh no! Oh yes! So come on,
Let me hear you cry darlin’
