Jim Dandy
Black Oak Arkansas Lyrics


Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

I was sitting on a mountain top.
30,000 feet to drop.
Tied me on a runaway horse
Uh huh, that's right, of course.
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

One day, I met a girl named Sue.
She was feeling kind of blue.
I'm Dandy, the kind of guy
Who can't stand to see a little girl cry.
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

I was riding on a submarine
Got a message from my mermaid queen.
She was hanging on a fishing line.
Mr. Dandy didn't waste no time!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

Once upon a time, I went to Maine.
Got a ticket on a DC plane.
Mr. Dandy didn't need no chute!
I was high and ready to boot!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

This would never have been a hit without Ruby Starr RIP 👍

Dave's here man

I think it would have made it but Ruby Starr and Grey Ghost was a great show too.

Bob Fedyski

Oh, yeah! When I saw them around '74, that outfit and shoes were all she wore, nothing under it, she made VERY clear, repeatedly 😉

David Zuchowski

You're dizzy.

Little did anyone know their drummer Tommy Aldridge would end up being one of the best drummers in the world. The man is a monster behind a drum kit 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Isaiah Marquez

And he’s STILL PLAYING! Not just playing but beating those drums like they stole money from him.

Earl Fox

Not sure how many bands I have seen him with, the latest was White snake about four yrs ago

J Rob Dickson

@greg best naah- Ronnie Tutt was doing the double bass with Elvis before that-

T

@greg best , I believe that..to me he’s not like anyone else. Has his own style of attacking the drums and cymbals. And his solos are awesome, not all drummers should do solos…I’ve seen quite a few of Tommy’s solos that were just mind blowing . I’ve seen a lot of drummers in my life and I just think Tommy’s probably the best…

greg best

Interesting back story.Aldridge himself has become very influential, and is regarded as a double bass drum pioneer in rock music.
