SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON II : FATTENING FROGS FOR SNAKES [1959]

Ο αγαπημένος των λευκών ‘60s blues-rockers, αρμονικίστας, singer-songwriter Alex Miller, γνωστός ως Sonny Boy Williamson II [καμία σχέση με τον προγενέστερο επίσης αρμονικίστα, singer-songwriter με το ίδιο όνομα] σε ένα τραγούδι του από το 1959.
Μακάρι να μπορούσα να ακολουθήσω το παράδειγμά του [βλ. στίχους]

The harmonicist, singer-songwriter
Alex Miller, known as Sonny Boy Williamson II [no relation with the former harmonicist, singer-songwriter of the same name]’ and ‘60s white blues-rockers favorite, in a song of his from 1959.
If only I could follow his example [see lyrics]

It took me a long time, to find out my mistakes
Took me a long time, to find out my mistakes
(It sho’ did man)
But I bet you my bottom dollar, I’m not fattenin’ no more frogs for snakes
I found out my downfall, back in nineteen and thirty
(I started checkin’)
I found out my downfall, from nineteen and thirty
I’m tellin’ all of my friends, I’m not fattenin’ no more frogs for snakes
All right now… (solo)
Yeh it is nineteen and fifty-seven, I’ve got to correct all of my mistakes
Whoa man, nineteen and fifty-seven, I’ve got to correct all of my mistakes
I’m tellin’ my friends includin’ my wife and everybody else,
Not fattenin’ no more frogs for snakes
