Next Time You See Me

about

This is a classic song made famous by Little Jr. Parker in the 1950s.

The annual "Dead Covers Project" on YouTube, was in full swing in tribute to Europe '72's 50th anniversary, and Keaggy and I had been talking about blues songs, and Mike Bloomfield in particular. This was on a second volume album released from that tour, and a staple of Pigpen's repertoire back then. It's also just one of my favorite blues songs.

I put down my guitar parts, and played bass, sang, then sent it to Joe, got some drums, sent it to Scott Guberman who plays piano and Hammond organ on it, then it was off to Phil "Bloomfield Hand" Keaggy, and finally, Denise Stewart Bates, who can always be counted on to bring the boogie.

A dancing skeleton video was put together, which quickly became one of the top viewed for the DCP this year, before taking off to over 25k views.

lyrics

Next time you see me, things won't be the same
Next time you see me, things won't be the same
Well if it hurts you my darlin', you only got yourself to blame

Well it's a true, true saying, all that shines is not gold
Well it's a true, true saying, all that shines is not gold
But like the good book say, you've gonna reap just what you sow

Well, you lied, cheated, wo-oh for so long
Well, you lied, cheated, wo-oh for so long
You're were wrong to do it woman, and another queen is on your throne

Well it's a true, true saying, all that shines is not gold
Well it's a true, true saying, all that shines is not gold
But like the good book say, you've gonna reap just what you sow

Well, you lied, cheated, wo-oh for so long
Well, you lied, cheated, wo-oh for so long
You're were wrong to do it woman, and another queen is on your throne

Next time you see me, things won't be the same
Next time you see me, things won't be the same
And if it hurts you my darlin', you only got yourself to blame

Well, you lied, cheated, wo-oh for so long
Well, you lied, cheated, wo-oh for so long

You're were wrong to do it woman, and another queen is on your throne
You're were wrong to do it woman, and another queen is on your throne
You're were wrong to do it woman, and another queen is on your throne
