    There's so many things wrong about "Six days on the road" it must have been written by a uber driver. For one, I got 10 forward gears and a Georgia overdrive. Georgia overdrive is coasting out of gear. Coasting out of gear on flat ground? Well probably not for long if you're a little overloaded. If you're coasting downhill, and you're a little overloaded, we'll you better wake old Fred up in the sleeper or he's gonna miss a hell of a wreck.

    These seem to be common mistakes with many bluesmen:

    Big legged women can actually be quite soulful.

    Also, peach trees are seldom shaken since the fruit bruises so easily. Peaches are usually hand picked.

    He doesn't tell me why, and it really annoys me.

    Perhaps Nat Burton was thinking of the toffees?

    Or maybe not, he was American after all ;)

    The rock star world is populated with druggies and drop-outs, why would anyone expect them to get the facts straight?

    Benoit Mandelbrot is dead, though the song says otherwise. But he was alive when the song was written. What about songs that were once true, but are not any longer?

    Heart's "Barracuda" "burn burn burn to the wick" - I think the wick is the part you light, not the end.

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

    'Other words' also scan better sometimes.

    Is there even a midnight express upon which to gain passage to Bangkok?
    Enquiring minds want to know...

    Well, it could have been a sedan...except the lyrics say:

    "That Model A body made her look like a pup." Not:

    "That Model A body made her look like a poop." :D

    Here's what the original supposedly was...

    Is there a midnight train to Georgia?
    As an aside, I tried to buy a ticket for the love train hoping that the ojays would be on board - well you should have seen the looks I got from the ticket vendor. Quite frankly I've a good mind to write a strongly worded letter to the ojays for their intransigence.
