Drinking Tequila With A Fire Burning In Your Soul

uidglafhgffeI have been talking to Jack all morning and now I am waiting for my lunch (I have a vegetarian casserole in the oven) to cook, I have realized that I forgot to schedule my SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY post. If I had paid attention to this week’s theme I might have opted for a very different lunch.

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator ofΒ A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: BURRITO/FAJITA/MEXICAN/TEQUILA

I had a couple of ideas of songs with a Mexican feel, but when I checked they lyrics there were none of the buzzwords in today’s theme. So I have chosen a song that is new to me, because I love the iconic sound of Jerry Lee Lewis.

Well when you’re feeling low
What you need is a real good lift
You ought to get yourself in gear
And I will take you on a swinging trip
Head to crazy music with a honky beat
There’s a place in Memphis where you can find your family
It’s great down at the Killer’s place

There’s a lot of women around the tables and around the bar
Son it ain’t necessary
You don’t even need to tell ’em who you are
Hello girly honey would you like to dance
You don’t have to worry about a big romance
It’s great down at Jerry’s place

Killer’s gonna happen when you give it all on the road
Drinking up tequila with a fire burning in your soul
There ain’t nothing like it you just can’t get enough
He’ll be there a gettin’ it when the sun comes up
It’s great, so great down at the Killer’s place

Killer’s gonna happen when you get that old piano rollin’
Drinking tequila with a fire burning in your soul
There ain’t nothing like it you just can’t get enough
He’ll be there a rockin’ it when the sun comes up
It’s great at Jerry Lee’s place

  1. Jerry Lee Lewis could really rock it out. Great choice Mel. I just watched that movie Cadillac Records the other day and when Chuck berry gets arrested he says, “I guess it would be allowed if I married my 14 year old cousin”, which killed Jerry’s career when the radio stations stopped playing his songs after that.

    1. This is exactly why I prefer to know nothing about the personal lives of most musicians and performers.
      They can have phenomenal talent but sometimes turn out to be scarily beyond strange!!!

    1. He has such an amazing sound doesn’t he.
      It made me feel like a TexMex night – so much more fun with friends though. Living on my own, I try not to give in to all my foody cravings.

      1. I love TexMex anytime. πŸ˜‚ come by it naturally being a Texan. Yes he has an amazing sound. He toured with Elvis and Johnny Cash. Can’t go wrong with any of those. 😊
