  1. Here's this weeks lyrics. I'm posting these because of recent discussions in the "Concert" forum. "Can't You See" - The Marshall Tucker Band I'm gonna take a freight train Down at the station, Lord I don't care where it goes Gonna climb me a mountain The highest mountain Gonna jump off Nobody gonna know Can't you see Whoa can't you see What that woman, Lord She been doin' to me Can't you see Can't you see What that woman She been doin' to me I'm gonna find me A hole in the wall I'm gonna crawl inside and die 'cause that lady now Mean ol' woman Lord Done told me goodbye Can't you see Whoa can't you see What that woman, Lord She been doin' to me Can't you see Can't you see What that woman She been doin' to me I'm gonna buy me a ticket now As far as I can Ain't never comin' back Ride me a Southbound All the way to Georgia now 'till the train run out of track Can't you see Whoa can't you see What that woman, Lord She been doin' to me Can't you see Can't you see What that woman She been doin' to me Oh Lord Can't you see Whoa can't you see What that woman, Lord She been doin' to me Can't you see Whoa can't you see What that woman She been doin' to me Can't you see (Whoa she's such a crazy lady) Can't you see What that woman (What that woman) She been doin' to me Can't you see (Whoa I can't stand it) Can't you see What that woman She been doin' to me Can't you see (I'm gonna take a freight train) Can't you see (Down at the station, Lord) What that woman (Ain't never comin' back) She been doin' to me Can't you see (Gonna ride me a southbound) Can't you see (All the way to Georgia now) What that woman ('til the train run out of track)
  2. I think some of these bands play music along the same lines as what was being played in the 70's. - Counting Crows - John Mayer - The Wallflowers - Oasis - 3 Doors Down - Black Crowes - Dave Matthews Band Now figuring out their influences could be difficult since they probably have many.
  3. I think the era of "classic rock" died out in the early 80's when all the hair bands took over along with that goofy new wave sound. To me, classic rock may be older, but it's the pure form of rock 'n' roll music where the lyrics and the instrumentals actually meant something and sounded so beautiful together and weren't geared toward our MTV/pop culture. I've notice that there are many bands from the 90's that are getting back to this type of music playing. I think the majority of music from the 80's is a bit of a black hole.
  4. "The Marshall Tucker Band" album has a bunch of great songs on it. But if you just want a couple... "Can't You See" "Fly Like an Eagle" "Take the Highway" "Losing You" "Heard it in a Love Song" These are my favorites so far. But that's only because I'm still purchasing albums. Remember, Marshall Tucker Band is on the country-rock side of Southern Rock. But they are part of the "big three" which consist of The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and The Marshall Tucker Band. These are the 3 sides to Southern Rock, and man they have made some sweet a$$ music.

  6. I could create a pirated video in Milwaukee and send it to the three of you! :: ::
  7. It's really all about the music anyway and the fact that you're watching a legendary Southern Rock band play (even though they've had a lot of turn over).
  8. Yay, that's my Simple Man Songfact!!! You may be getting flooded with new Skynyrd Songfacts soon here. Beware the Skynyrd freak...
  9. Only one original member of the Marshall Tucker Band remains (Doug Gray). They're coming to Rochester, MN, but the venue is not the greatest. And yet, I really really want to see them because they now rank as # 2 on my favorite band listing. Here's the tour schedule.

  10. Foxy you rule!! That looks a bit like my son when he was really little.
  11. What happened to List # 5 being on the homepage? Right now I see List # 4 again.
  12. I thought the character in The Wall runs away to live in the US. If that's the case, then the line "Mother should I run for President?" would be fitting if he was living in the US during that portion of the story. But yes, you are correct. In order to run for President, you must be a naturally born US citizen.
  13. I think it's more meant to be just talk, but the anger displayed in the words shows how horrified he is by the crimes that are being committed. I also think the anger is shown with how little society does to deal with these offenders. It's kind of "be nice or I'll kick your f----n' @$$" Something like that.
  14. Aah, a wonderful song about the horrors of this wonderful nation we call the United States. In all honesty, to me, this is a song about the evil things capable within the human society and how we should just go back to calmer times.
  15. "Simple Man" - The Charlie Daniels Band I ain't nothin' but a simple man They call me a redneck I reckon that I am But there's things going on That make me mad down to the core I have to work like a dog to make ends meet There's crooked politicians and crime in the street And I'm madder'n hell and I ain't gonna take it no more We tell our kids to just say no Then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go Slaps him on the wrist and then he turns him back out on the town Now if I had my way with people sellin' dope I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope I'd hang 'em up high and let 'em swing 'til the sun goes down Well, you know what's wrong with the world today People done gone and put their Bible's away They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land The good book says it so I know it's the truth An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth You better watch where you go and remember where you been That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man Now I'm the kinda man that'd not harm a mouse But if I catch somebody breakin in my house I've got a twelve guage shotgun waiting on the other side So don't go pushing me against my will I don't want to have to fight you but I dern sure will So if you don't want trouble then you'd better just pass me on by As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse For the raping and the killing and the child abuse And I've got a way to put an end to all that mess Just take them rascals out in the swamp Put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest You know what's wrong with the world today People done gone and put their Bible's away They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land The Good Book says it so I know it's the truth An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth You better watch where you go and remember where you been That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man

  17. Top 5 is so hard to put in order... 1. Was I Right or Wrong - Lynyrd Skynyrd 2. Can't You See - The Marshall Tucker Band 3. Mr. Banker - Lynyrd Skynyrd 4. Round Here - Counting Crows 5. Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd It's such a hard decision to only choose 5.
  18. Whoa, my songfacts are in... all except Charlie Daniels Band "Devil Went Down to Georgia"
  19. Wet Willie! Southern Rock or DIE!!! You guys ROCK!
  20. I think this deserves more than a banana So does this mean I'll get to see the songfacts I submitted soon?
  21. ****IMPORTANT**** A reminder to anyone that is interested in going to Moondance. April 15 is the last day for discounted tickets. From April 16, the price of tickets rises from $110 to $130 for a 4-day pass. Also, camping is a 2-person minimum. You cannot reserve a camping spot for one person (that means you will have to pay $120 to camp regardless if there's 1 or 2 people). Although if you camp alone, there's always the possiblity of a *ahem* new "friend" showing up! ::
  22. We're on a very similar wavelength Helena! Although I wish you would stop making it snow... I'd keep Supertramp...
  23. I too like the way the song is saying "you're supposed to act this way, but we don't, because we are ourselves". I've had many times that I've felt this way before. And it's always a nice escape when you find a song that really gets to you.
  24. I've always liked this song, but in the past couple years it's really had more meaning to me than before. To me, there's a story about a girl who's life is falling apart. I had a period in my life where I felt the same way. So I can really relate to what's being said. Such a wonderful song.
