Hi-De-Ho
by Blood Sweat And Tears

Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Gonna find me a piece of the sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-ho
 
Listen, I've been down so low
That the bottom looked like up
Once I felt like second saves
Was enough to fill my cup
Now I've offered all I have
But it ain't no way to live
Being taken by the ones who have
The least amount to give
 
Singing hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Got to find me a piece of the sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho
 
I wanna tell you
Once I met the devil
He was mighty slick
Tempted me with worldly goods
Said I could have my pick
But when he laid the paper on me
And showed me where to sign
I said "Thank you very kindly
But I'm in too great a need of mine"
 
Singing hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi, oh
Got to find me a piece of that sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho, yeah
Hi-de-hi-de-ho
Hi-de-hi-de-ho, yeah
Hi-de-hi-de-ho
Hi-de-hi-de-hi
Talking 'bout hi-de-hi-de-ho

What a voice and horns for days...underrated band..love to revisit this music  a true pleasure

On a 70's Music Spree this evening, started by searching up the Georgia Songs (The Night the Lights Went Out & Midnight Train : 2 different artists, both great songs) then the playlist popped up some Cool older Chicago songs (Getting Stronger Everyday & Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is) those reminded me of another great 70's band that incorporated a Horn section into their musical sound - Blood, Sweat & Tears.
So here I am!
By the way 70's music is the BEST! - It does help that in was born in 1970, so those were the 1st songs I ever heard. I was lucky, my parent always had "classic rock" type of music playing, in the car on AM radio, and at home it was records on the Old-School Turntable stereo.
So it definitely made an impression on me, and the nostalgia I cannot put into words...
I do love all types of music, so I have tried it all out, and still listen to several different genres daily.
That being said, once the 80's came w/MTV and all the commercialism, Popular Music has never been the same.
Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of 80's Music, 90's & even current bands. For example Bon Iver gives me the 70's music type of feeling; in other words, I can feel Soul in the music.
But its like looking for a needle in a haystack to find Bands that REALLY put 100% of their Being into their music, and I bet most the time its because they aren't ALLOWED to by the Industry itself.
That's why I think 70's (and some mid-late 60's) music is the best, because you have a high % chance of listening to Real Music/Art that someone(s) put their SOUL into....and you can tell, you will know it when you hear/feel it in the right songs! PEACE TO ALL !!

hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho
