FLICK OF THE WRIST He didn’t wonder all the time he knew it was the wrong thing but the best that he could do another hand out another flick of the wrist another love song 11th on the list he didn’t look back ahead’s the only way still it feels like dying a little day by day another pick up another lonely heart to break another sad girl 11th on the list It’s such a boost to the ego,man! and such a bite to the feeding hand ; she’ll never belive you again.... tuning (low to high): E A D G B E personnel: Geb- d Snah-g (right ch.),voc. Bent-b,g (left ch.),lead voc. words: Sæther music: Sæther WISHING WELL ...And as it’s fading to a drowsy blue to live in I keep my eyes closed and pretend that I’m still sleeping there’s a hole when she’s smiling and a fire when she’s sad and a void when she’s glad when I feel how she’s humming how alive she’s inside I only hear how I lied cosmic comic-strip behind this wall I stay forgiven mirrors cracking clear the view daring me to drown in there and take her with me From your lips to Gods ears and to the wind.... there’s a hole.....etc and there’s always a reason yet it’s so hard to tell from this wishing well though these thoughts are colliding I’m left bound by the spell of this wishing well..... tuning (low to high):D A D G A D personnel: Geb-banjo Bent-12-& 6 str acc git,piano,rhodes,voc,perc,and some wicked tigh-slapping! words: Sæther with Øien music: Sæther UP OUR SLEEVES Eeehh....,this is a tough one-you see,we’re not quite certain we sang the right words to this vintage Steve Marriot screamer! There are ,to our knowledge,currently only two Humble Pie versions of this song available. The original-a live recording from the ‘73 «Eat it» album- and another live version on a «King biscuit flower hour» release. T hing is- Being live versions and by the ultimate seventies cokesnortin’ cockney kickass rock’n’roll band - Mr Marriot wasn’t too particular ‘bout his diction..... besides-this is probably copyrighted stuff anyway,and we wouldn’t wanna mess with the Man,now would we? If you need more,go check out the Pie. Required listening is as follows: «Town & country» 1969 «Humble Pie» 1970 «Rock on» 1971 «Performance-rockin’ the Fillmore» 1971 « Smokin’» 1972 but most of the rest is also quite listenable. for our version,here are the hard facts: tuning (L to H): D G C F A D personnel: Geb-d Snah-lead g,voc Bent-b,rythm g,lead voc words:Marriot music:Humble Pie INSTAMATIC instrumental tuning: E A D G B E personnel: Geb- everything words: music: Gebhardt Title suggested by Kim H.-he thought it was a good title for a song like this.
