J.J. Cale Lyrics

Clyde plays electric bass
Plays it with finesse and grace
Sit on the porch without no shoes
A-picking the bass and singing the blues
Misery loves company
And his old dog sings harmony
Tambourine tied to his tail
You can hear him moan, you can hear him wail

Jody May, she got a dollar
Down the road you can hear her holler
"Get up Clyde, we got something to do
That old dog can sing the blues"
He don't move, he don't flinch
Clyde, he don't move an inch
Just sit on the porch without no shoes
Picking his bass and singing the blues

This the song that in '71 introduced me into JJ Cale and is still my favorite. JJ Cale many times copied but never equaled. Thank you

Gerald Dixon Cummings

Two chords in this tune only…E & D…it takes someone special to make a great song with only two chords. R.I.P. JJ Cale.

Joe Flood

Try John Lee Hooker with only one chord. But sure, I always loved this.

Robert Glenn San Socie

Gone but always in the breeze. Thanks for the tunes,smiles and joy.
