Red Clay
Freddie Hubbard Lyrics


If you told me that you loved me I would feel so proud
Let me hold you honey, I'd holler out loud
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Now won't you love me baby just to kinda hang around
I'll always love you honey, I'll never let you down
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Well I'd climb the highest mountain if it reached the sky
To prove that I love you I'd jump off and fly
I'd even swim the ocean from shore to shore
To prove that I love you just a little bit more

Ah won't you love me baby just to kinda hang around
I'll always love you honey, I'll never let you down
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Now won't you love me baby just to kinda hang around
I'll always love you honey, I'll never let you down
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Come to me baby I'm a one woman man
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Near the end of his life Freddie was my next door neighbor on Hartsook Street in Sherman OaksCA. In the middle of the night he would improvise on the piano, and only occasionally on trumpet. The music he made was haunting and unforgettable. My girlfriend at the time didn't get it at all. (I should have learned something from that....)

@Anna Lisa i didn't think of it as a sexist remark but rather that he had picked the wrong girlfriend, one who he couldn't enjoy listening to jazz with.

As a fellow who lived a little down the way in Reseda, you I’m glad you’re out of that relationship lol. Only women appreciate jazz, not girls.

@Anna Lisa I can't speak for Lendall but perhaps he's say that this woman was not for him.

LUCKY!! I would have told him to turn it all the way up. I need this type of music in the middle of the night.

Damn. I wish I could hear a recording of that.

I saw Freddie at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago (when it was still pretty dilapidated). At a lull between numbers, I screamed from the 3rd balcony, "Play Red Clay!" Freddie looked up and said, "Ha! The sister wants to hear Red Clay!" They struck up the intro and the place WENT WILD!

On the "In Concert" album he did with Stanley Turrentine, Herbie, Ron, Jack Dejohnette, and Eric Gale recorded at the Ford Auditorium in Detroit circa 1973, They opened with Povo. My buddies and I were there yelling out "Red Clay, Red Clay" at the beginning of the set, and after they finished Povo. We can be heard on the album. He ignored us and went on to play Gibraltar. Never did play it. Moral to the story is always get the ladies to yell out your requests at a jazz concert...unless it's Candy Dulfer, Diana Krall, et.al. performing. [Laffin😄]

@Dave LaSorte Hope that's not true (dirty look I mean).
