about

Trying to maintain the integrity of the blues tradition, while making your own stories, that’s the alchemy I find so intriguing, satisfying and fun.
It’s fitting and very wonderful to be accompanied here by legendary Delta pianist Pinetop Perkins, a living link to the ‘old time ways’, and someone who continues share his talent and music at the age of 96. I make no apologies for the sassy lyrics, especially not to Pinetop, who is a bit of a ladies man! I also give a respectful nod to ‘Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin, whose playing and friendship I always find inspirational. As for Pinetop’s thoughts - ‘Who’s gonna pay it? Tom Mix!’

lyrics

Well, I’m a full-grown woman, way past twenty-one
I want some steady-rolling, baby, and I know how I want it done
I want some rolling, baby
Just like them good old days
‘Cause I’m a modern woman
But, lord, I got them old time ways

Pick up the telephone, babe
I’m waiting for your call
You can come on over, baby, get your ashes hauled
I want some rolling
Just like them good old days
‘Cause I might be a modern gal
But, lord, I got these old time ways

I need a mechanic, baby
Need a driver too
You say you’re qualified, baby, let’s just see what you can do!
I want some rolling
Just like them good old days
‘Cause I might be a modern woman
But some things never change

Bake some jelly-roll, baby
Be my kitchen man
Fill my sugar bowl, baby
Kick my Southern can I want some rolling
Just like them good old days
‘Cause I might be a modern gal
But, lord, I got these old time ways

I get my coffee in Seattle, baby – or down in New Orleans
All I really care about
Is how they grind my beans
I want some rolling
Just like them good old days
‘Cause I’m a modern gal
But, lord, I got these old time ways
