She had this [barbecue pit] piled up full of hickory. She comes out with this two gallon can of gasoline & she up-ends this thing over the hickory... As she walks away from the pit she takes a kitchen match, strikes it on her butt, throws it over her shoulder, causes an explosion 30 feet into the air. Then she walked by and said: 'Be ready'n about an hour...' - Steve James, Port Townsend 97

This is my first attempt at this elusive Tommy tune, got the lyrics from a David Evans transcription I found online. Tried following the verse structure of the original but you really have to be paying attention in those instrumental/kazoo sections because there are so many of them & you have to have some ideas floating around or the song seems too long. I'm working towards a project of covering some of the rarer Johnson tunes, especially those from the Paramount sessions & I'll probably share the results here. Apologies for the echo effect, was a bit more than I intended :o

Great job Cheapfeet, always wanted to hear a clearer recording of that tune, it's a great cover mate.
I met a woman she was a pigmeat some
Big fat mouth, I followed her home
She pulled a gun and broke my jaw
Didnt leave me hard on, I didnt get sore

That's terrific Mike! Also dig the distant sound quality thing. An effect or what? Really good version. :)
