Sweet Thursday (Cannery Row Theme for “Doc”)


This original song was written by band member Patrick Michael Karnahan of the Black Irish Band. the lead vocal is from bandmate James Nelson.

The song is a tribute to the late Ed “Doc” Ricketts, who was made famous in the John Steinbeck books “Cannery Row” and “Sweet Thursday. Doc is featured as the main character in both books. The endings however are quite different for Doc. Cannery row ends on a sad note where Sweet Thursday is happy and Doc falls in love.

Patrick wrote the words based on a dream, or vision that Doc has in the first book. A woman of great beauty that he sees in the tidepool. In the story we never know who she might be, maybe a past love. The songwriter takes that vision and it becomes a daydream for Doc. the daydream is the storyline in the 2nd book Sweet Thursday.

Doc however at the end of the story song wakes up to find out that his love was only a dream from Cannery Row!

The song is on the bands 19th Cd album release California Story which features lead vocals by Michael Martin Murphey. Bands web-site at http://www.blackirish.com

UFO only You Can Rock Me


Album: Best of UFO: Gold Collection
Track #2
Year: 1999

Lyrics:
Who’s taking time out, we’ll take a shine out
We’re the boys we got nothing to lose
I’ve had enough now of school and stuff now
If you ain’t with us then it’s just bad news

Only you can rock me, rock me
Come on back now do it again
Only you can rock me, rock me
Kicking out just like a hurrican

We can’t wait from day to day
Cuz we’ve got something to say
We can’t wait from day to day
Cuz we’ve got something to say

Come on the street now on every corner
Breaking out and we’re doing what we want to
Just like a jewel shines in the night
She burns so hot out under the street light

[Chorus]

We are here and there’s no end
We keep on coming again
We are here and there’s no end
We just keep coming again

[Solo]

Who’s taking time out, we take a shine out
We’re the boys we got nothing to lose
I’ve had enough now of school

And stuff now
If you ain’t with us then it’s just bad news

[Chorus]

We can’t wait from day to day
Cuz we’ve got something to say
We are here and there’s no end
We’ll keep on coming again

We can’t wait from day to day
Cuz we’ve got something to say
We are here and there’s no end
We’ll keep on coming again

Leonard Cohen – Show Me The Place


Show me the place where you want your slave to go
Show me the place I’ve forgotten I don’t know
Show me the place for my head is bending low
Show me the place where you want your slave to go
Show me the place help me roll away the stone
Show me the place I can’t move this thing alone
Show me the place where the Word became a man
Show me the place where the suffering began
The troubles came I saved what I could save
A thread of light, a particle, a wave
But there were chains so I hastened to behave
There were chains so I loved you like a slave
Show me the place where you want your slave to go
Show me the place I’ve forgotten I don’t know
Show me the place for my head is bent and low
Show me the place where you want your slave to go

The troubles came I saved what I could save
A thread of light, a particle, a wave
But there were chains so I hastened to behave
There were chains so I loved you like a slave
Show me the place
Show me the place help me roll away the stone
Show me the place I can’t move this thing alone
Show me the place where the word became a man
Show me the place where the suffering began
