I'm Worried About You

March 5, 2010 4:22 AM

Here's my new band, Medicine Bone, from our official first gig at Velvet Sun in Ogikubo, Tokyo, February 27, 2010. Ken Shima is on guitar, and sings plenty of his own tunes in the band too: it's a collaborative effort. This is one of my tunes, though, a blues. Video of this same performance at YouTube.


down in Memphis Tennessee
they've devalued the currency
but it don't mean a thing to
got my banjo on my knee

but i'm worried about you
honey i'm worried about you
the things you do i tell you true
i'm worried about you

the government's been reading my mail
they got my sister in the county jail
but i'm raising the money to go her bail
i got seventeen dollars i will not fail

but i'm worried about you . . .

i'm accused of murder in the first degree
they found Hitler and Stalin in my family tree
my own mother's got no use for me
and my wife's been giving me the third degree

but i'm worried about you . . .

now things look bad for me i'll admit
but it's mostly just people talkin' shit
am i scared? no not a bit
i'll rely on my good looks and my wit

but i'm worried about you . . .

Sorry, flapjax, I'm all over the place watching your vids, and I'm totally stoked by them.

If anyone tunes in after me...watch the vids. (check youtube/flickr)

Not to make too big a deal of it, but it's difficult enough to play drums while singing, let alone while standing up. Pretty damn awesome. That drum rig of yours is pretty awesome too. What would be the snare has a really bitchen slap to it and the bass, a really sweet bump/thump.

Great stuff man. Congrats on the new band!

Nice, nice, excellent ! Another interesting unit. Great ! Plenty of good things in your lyrics too, as usual.

The walking drum again! Geez, flapjax, you and your bands. I'm starting to suspect you are not an individual but an union of flapjax at midnites.

(Lovely song as always, and you've made me envious about your bands, as always.)

Mica, "walking drum" is brilliant, I'm using that from now on. And thanks for your kind words!
