Paycheck Friday

Playing in a bar on paycheck friday can be a good thing. At our show on friday, a patron of the bar decided to pay us a large some of money to have his friend play three songs at the end of the night. The only condition was that I play with him on percussion. I certainly wasn't going to turn down the money, so up the the man came. At first I was a little worried, you never know how good they are going to be. (Can they actually play guitar and/or sing or are they going to clear the place out?) Then he grabbed the guitar and slowly started fingering out the chords. I was thinking this could be a long few songs. Once he started the first song I knew we were going to be all right. Folsom Prison Blues. He nailed the song and went on to play two other country songs that he also nailed. All in all it was a lot of fun. At least I had fun and the crowd seemed to be having fun as well.

So thanks for the good times, and for paying me to do it.

I hear the train a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't seen the sunshine,
Since, I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison...

I can just picture you banging away to this song...
