When I was a young boy
Well they tried to tell me
That I was movin'
Movin' way too fast
And I knew everything
About everything
But I really didn't wanna listen
To a bunch of old folks talkin' trash
So I got out on the highway
Pedal to the floor
Smokin' and drinkin'
And a whole lot more
But when they came to collect me
Out of that jail
They said boy next time
You get no bail

(Chorus:)
You better slow down
You better slow down
Woke up one mornin'
Ooh to a hunger

I moaned
And I began to twitch
Felt the need
For some lovin'
A little sweet somebody
To scratch my itch
Momma said I don't mean to pry
But I'm here to advise you
Seeds like to grow
When you put 'em in fertilizer

(Chorus)

Doin' my own thing
I'm all grown up
Yes I am
Little bit older
But I feel like a young buck
I'm ridin' down the highway
In a brand new mini van
Wife and kids screamin'
Ooh God I'm a family man
I'm outta mind
Losin' control
I could leave tomorrow
But there ain't nowhere to go

(Chorus)

A song with something to say.

Steely Keb! I dig it.
Nice call. Silkier vocals (duh), but, you're right, a lot of the same Dan touches. Excellent tune.
8) Very nice to hear this man get on the airwaves. He's Great!

I also saw him live in July with Jacksone Browne and Steve Earle. I thought his show was the best one out of the three. You are absolutely right about the stage presence.
wow. i had the exact opposite experience. saw KebMo open for Bela Fleck a while back, and i couldnt have been any more underwhelmed by his set. to my ears and eyes, it was an almost entirely forgetable performance.
This is a great album and very cool. It has a whole video interview with Keb after the last track. It plays on Windows Media Player if you play it in a CD player on your computer. First time I have come across that and it was a nice surprise. I saw him live at Jazz Fest (that's short for New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival) a few years ago. Great show.

On hearing the intro to this song I thought it was Eric Clapton's "Lay Down Sally"!! Don't know of this of this guy - quite good - in fact rather like old Slowhand himself

ha...hey...ummmm... oh ya..love the tune!!! :motor: "better slow down" \:D/
Saw KB perform twice in the past couple years and wish I had seen him more. Outstanding musician with a kick-ass backup.
