Lilly Pad Blues

Uploaded .

With Mark “Sweet Lips” Imsdahl on Harmonica.

This is a story about my friend with impure thoughts of stealing Lilly Pads for his carp pond in the back yard.

I guess it all started, Out in the dark
I was stealing lily pads, From the local park
Bad idea, That I learned so hard
Just to help those fishes, Swim in my back yard

I got the Lily pad blues, payin my dues
Oh Lord I got em, those lily pad blues

Now I’m in the big house, Doing 3 to 5
I’ll be so lucky, To get out alive
I see them all lookin Straight at me
What kind of pretty boy, Could I be

I got the Lily pad blues, payin my dues
Oh Lord I got em, those lily pad blues

Told my Pa,Can’t come home no more
I work all day, Then they lock the door
I’m stuck in here, With all kinds of life
Some of them even killed their wife

I got the Lily pad blues, payin my dues
Oh Lord I got em, those lily pad blues

They ask me what am I here for
I say Lily Pads, then they lock the door
There’s one big old boy, lookin straight at me
He got love in his eyes, can’t you see

I got the Lily pad blues, payin my dues
Oh Lord I got em, those lily pad blues

Oh this is the stuff. Damn fine... I know someone who occasionally "collects" poppy seeds for planting in her own garden, can you get 3 to 5 for that?

The man on harmonica sounds like he's been at it hard for 3 to 5! Had to come by for a second helping. Great song -- Rock on!

Ripping off the Park System is a bad move An excellent look into Greg Connor and his cell mate Mark Imsdahl
