Strange Kind of Woman (Cover)

This is a special request by Sister.
It’s kinda sloppy. Frankly, because I suck at it :)
I’m not much of a cover musician but I gave it hell.

It’s mostly analog. MIDI drums, DB33 organ patch,
strat leads, and Ibanez chords, Dean bass..
During my learning and recording this tune I
discovered it’s a true story about a friend of the band’s. Ian called her an “Evil Bird”.
That vid is on youtube somewhere.

I certainly ain’t nowhere near the caliber of
musicians that Deep Purple is. I love this band BIG TIME. So this is sacrilegious to me.

Lyrics:

There once was a woman a strange kind of woman
the kind that gets written down in history
her name was nancy her face was nothing fancy
she left a trail of happiness and misery

i loved her everybody loved her
she loved everyone and gave a good return
i tried to take her i even tried to break her
she said i aint for taking wont you ever learn

i want you i need you i gotta be near you
i spend my money as i took my turn
i want you i need you i gotta be near you
oh got a strange kind of woman

she looked like a raver but i could never please her
on wednesday mornings boy you cant go far
i couldnt get her but thing got the better she said
saturday night from now on baby your my star

she finally said she loved me i wed her in a hurry
no more callers and i glowed with pride
im dreaming i feel like screaming
i won my woman just before she died

Strange Kind Of Woman
(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
Single, 1971.
