Peter Paul and Mary

You take a stick of bamboo
You take a stick of bamboo
You take a stick of bamboo
You throw it in the water
Oh, oh, Hanaah

River, she come down
River, she come down

What is the best Bond song? This is one of my favorites. The lyrics are simple yet perplexing and the melody and orchestration are superb.

“You Only Live Twice” as sung by Nancy Sinatra

You only live twice or so it seems
One life for yourself and one for your dreams
You drift through the years and life seems tame
Till one dream appears and love is its name

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone

This dream is for you, so pay the price
Make one dream come true, you only live twice

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone

This dream is for you, so pay the price
Make one dream come true, you only live twice

Remember Jimmie Rogers singing “Bimbombey” and “Honeycomb”? Those are songs that are hard to stop re-hearing in your head. Oh Oh Spaghetti O’s. Peter

Notes. With over 40 top ten hits in the late 50s and 60s, Jimmie Rodgers is one of the early superstars of Rock & Roll. His biggest #1 hits include "Honeycomb", "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine", "It's Over", "Child Of Clay", "Oh Oh I'm Falling In Love Again" and "The Long Hot Summer", which nominated Jimmie for an Oscar. You also know him from commercial jingles taken from his songs-- Honeycomb was used for the cereal, Honeycomb; and Oh Oh Spaghetti-O's came from Oh Oh I'm Falling in Love Again.

Ear worm worthy? And it was written by Bob Dylan, “Hey . . . Mama Rock Me.”

Darius Rucker - Wagon Wheel

Headin' down south to the land of the pines
I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
Starin' up the road and pray to God I see headlights

I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a-hopin' for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight

So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey... mama rock me

 

Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey... mama rock me

Runnin' from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now

 

Oh, north country winters keep a-gettin' me down
Lost my money playin' poker, so I had to leave town
But I ain't a-turnin' back to livin' that old life no more

So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey... mama rock me

 

Yeah, rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey... mama rock me

Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly, had a nice long toke
But he's a-headin' west from the Cumberland Gap

 

To Johnson City, Tennessee
And I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby callin' my name and I know that she's the only one
And if I died in Raleigh, at least I will die free

So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey... mama rock me

 

Oh, rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey... mama rock me

 

So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel (oh, I wanna feel)
Hey... mama rock me

Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey... mama rock me

Songwriters: Bob Dylan, Jay Secor
