Electricity-BookBinder Version
« on: December 07, 2005, 12:56:57 PM »
The people in this forum are extremely knowledgeable and maybe someone can help me. I heard someone play a song called Electricity. They did a Roy Bookbinder version. Anyone have the words?



It begins with: You can see electricity when it's moving down the line

Thanks for any help
Mel

If all else fails - the song is on Book's latest CD "Live at Fur Peace Ranch"(great CD btw)- which is also on the Juke.  ;)

Flattery will get you part way there anyway. It's on Roy's excellent new Live at the Fur Peace Station CD, and is available on the Juke. The tune is Jimmy Murphy's 1949 "Electricity," played out of Vestapol tuning (or open D). I don't have the lyrics though.

Electricity

J. Murphy-Acuff Rose C. 1950, Roy's version

You can't see 'Lec-etricity when it's moving down the line
How in the world can you doubt it when you can surely see it shine
I say that when you seek salvation, its current you will feel
You won't need nobody I said, to tell you that it's real

This old-time salvation that He gave to me and you
I'm feasting on a mountain like Jesus told me to
I'm drinking from God's fountain that runs from up on high
An d I'm feasting on God's mountain where God's fountain don't run dry

Some people don't know good music when they hear it in the air
Some people they don't know their God when they're kneeling down in prayer
Say let me tell you something, and I ain't a-gonna tell you wrong
When you get salvation sonny you'll know it by its tone

Some people don't believe in religion, they think it's all a fake
But it's as real good people, as eating a doggone T-bone steak
Yes it's sweet as any honey, that any bee could make
With the good old sugar molasses and a great big chocolate cake.

Repeat 1st verse.

This is also available on "The Radio Show" and when you see the Book do it live you know it's an absolute stonker.  (Brit banter).   :D

Then you have to do it and you find it's on "An introduction to Open Tunings and Slide Guitar" taught by Roy.    ;)

So you get the DVD and then you do it.   8)

It doesn't really get any better than that!   >:D

Well I got the DVD and I am working on, Electricity, Tired of Being Mistreated and how I would love to learn She Did You A  Favor. Don't know if I ready for that one yet, but I will try real hard.
