You Don't Know What's Going On
Exuma Lyrics

You don't know what's going on
Can't make the world go 'round
Here today, tomorrow your gone
You don't know what's going on

When the holy cow's milking
And the greenbacks are rolling
You are the king and queen pin
But when the greenbacks turn brown
And you fall down
Whatcha gonna do, watcha gonna do

Come go with me
Come take my hand
I'm going home
Come go with me

You can't change the night into day
You can't take the milk from the milky way
You can't take the sun from the sky
And you can't put the light in Ray Charles eye

This song was featured in a film called JOE, starring Peter Boyle and Susan Sarandon. This was her first film. She went with her husband Chris Sarandon to his audition(the drug dealer role). He didn't get the part, but they liked her. She was cast as the dealer's girlfriend. Surprised this nugget was here because I only hear it when I watch this extraordinary period film basically NYC after Woodstock. Really unpredictable movie which I love. I saw this movie one night before I was cast as an extra for a film called In the Line of Duty Street Wars, starring Maro Van Peebles, Peter Boyle and Ray Sharkey. I had no clue Peter Boyle would be on the set. And the night before I'd seen him on JOE. I even told him. But he was busy with Ray Sharkey. They knew each other from a remake of Baby Doll. Ray Sharkey died of HIV not long after. I believe Ray revealed this to Boyle. He gave me a look I'll never forget.

I'm going to have to check this out. Most recently, Exuma The Obeah Man was featured in Jordan Peele's film "Nope" which led me to revisiting this wonderful album.

@Joseph JoeJoe You're right BECAUSE when I mentioned I just saw JOE last night the look I received falls in line with he didn't know was I giving him a thumbs up or down. He was too involved with whatever Ray Sharkey was telling him to respond. I think it's a great post WOODSTOCK period drama and the way it unfolds is so unexpected which is a BIG reason I love this flick. Unpredictable and a real treat for those that haven't seen it.

Thank you for this story. I just saw "Joe" tonight. Boyle's performance is brilliant, the way he made that character both pitiable and somehow sympathetic. I know he refused to do anything involving violence for years, because he thought some people took "Joe" the wrong way. He turned down "The French Connection," because the Popeye Doyle character seemed like such a hardcore reactionary. The funny thing was that Gene Hackman felt the same way, and despised Doyle when he had to interact with him to prepare for his role. Eventually I guess Boyle must have softened his view of "Joe" because he was slated to make a sequel. Alas, it never came off.


@Evan's Gate yeah, please continue your story.... watching Joe again tonite. Remarkable film with an amazing cast. And this song. So easy to locate within the web! Gracias
