Tom Bliss at Havering Folk Club

It was a Special Guest Night this week at havering Folk Club with Tom Bliss who we just missed at Crail back in September when we were in Fife.

It was good to see Simon back for a short visit after suffering severe back trouble, and that a £5 entrance night can still generate a sizeable crowd for a weekly club.

There was only time for each floor spot to do one song so I did Cormorants, which has been on my mind this week.

Missing Week at Havering Folk Club

Oops I seem to have missed recording which songs I played at Havering Folk Club last week, so I'll have an incomplete archive unless I make amends now.

November 12th 2008

I took along my Rock and Roll guitar

Archtop guitar - make unknown

And played first one of my own songs, Doing it all Alone - which Linda likes and then Memphis Tennessee

Memphis Tennessee Chuck Berry Lyrics

Long distance information give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
She could not leave a number but I know who placed the call
'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

Help me information get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis, Tennessee
Her house is on the south side, high upon the ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge

Help me information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Last time I saw Marie she was waving me good-bye
With hurry home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eye
Marie is only six years' old, information please
Help me get in touch with her in Memphis Tennessee
