Hello there my old friend
Not so long ago it was till the end
We played outside in the pourin' rain
On our way up the road we started over again

You're livin' out dreams of you on top
My mind is achin' oh lord it wont stop
That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

Up and down the road in our worned out shoes
Talkin' 'bout good things and singin' the blues
You went your way and I stayed behind
We both knew it was just a matter of time

You're livin' out dreams of you on top
My mind is achin' oh lord it wont stop
That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

No waste of time we're allowed today
Churnin' up the past, there's no easier way
Times been between us a means to a end
God its good to be here walkin' together my friend

Livin' our dreams
My mind stoped achin'
That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

For some reason SRV has never connected with me. It's not that I don't like his music it's just something...

From boyhood in Dallas to adulthood in Austin, Doyle Bramhall and Stevie Ray Vaughan were friends, playing in bands and dreaming of the big time. Bramhall was a songwriter as well as a drummer, and he and Vaughan often wrote together; one of their early songs, “Dirty Pool,” made it onto Vaughan’s first album, 1983’s Texas Flood. Over the next few years, their paths diverged—one man playing stadiums, the other playing bars—yet the two remained close. Eventually Bramhall began writing a song about their friendship: 

“Doyle wasn’t jealous,” says Barbara Logan, who was Bramhall’s wife. “He was proud of Stevie. It was a dream they had both had, and now Stevie was living it.” Though the men had their problems with drugs and alcohol, Logan says that’s not what the song was about. “It was about living life day by day, one drop at a time.”

Thanks for posting this, I was just about to add it myself. Doyle Bramhall was a great talent in his own right. His son Doyle Bramhall II (not Jr.) is no slouch either: he tours with folks like Clapton and Waters.

Fortunately managed to catch SRV at the Reading Rock Festival in 1983; he had yet to make his name in the UK at that point but I was hooked from the first note! The guy was an absolute genius and, eventually, had the crowd eating out of his hands!
There's a youtube video on the link below

+1 to 10, party due to BillG having this SRV quote on the RP page today: 

You see, we are here, as far as I can tell, to help each other; our brothers, our sisters, our friends, our enemies.

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Long Live RP and HELPING each and everyone of us!!
Check out the version by the original - Doyle Bramhall Snr - even better
 
Winter followed by SRV ? How can one choose? love them both equally.

You poor wretch.
Saw him when he was touring with Jeff Beck in 89 at the Cap Centre. I love both guitarists but Beck phoned it in that night (kinda pissed me off). Stevie was just unbelievable.
Going up from a 9 to a 10.  I just love SRV.

Can I give it a 10 agin'?  Absolutely - thanks Bill and Rebecca for the great tunes!
Quite the show seeing Jeff Beck and SRV at the Cap Center in Md in '89. A year later I moved to Dallas and SRV was killed that weekend I arrived. Jeeze.
Yessssss
I miss so much saluting Steve's statue when doing my jogging every Sunday morning on Colorado River after an evening at Joe's Generic and before a lunch at Iron Cactus.

Saw him up close in New Orleans. Roy Buchanan opened. SRV did his usual Hendrix impersonation "Johnny One Note" stuff. Roy blew him away. Alot of Stevie Ray hype back then.

Doyle's is great as is this.
I was lucky enough to see an SRV "sound alike" in a seedy bar in Seoul.  With the hat, he was visibly similar, at least while he was looking down.       Only 2 hrs but the best thing since SRV himself....  and they served Guiness in bottles....... soju in cartons and warm ginseng coffee in cans!!

Stevie! I have never in my life heard a SRV rift that made me think "oh no, not again".

And this one — "Life by the drop" — is a great song, Stevie all cleaned up and ready to move on to super-stardom or whatever. But then... shit. The blues is hard. RIP Bro Stevie.


Great to hear a SRV cut that hasn't been overplayed by now—-Thanks!

P.S.-I'm NOT saying I don't like hearing the SRV songs that have been overplayed!

Wow. I'm envious. Sounds like an incredible show.
I don't generally go out of my way to listen to SRV (or blues in general, for that matter), so I am grateful that Bill keeps this in the regular rotation. Good stuff.

I see your point. I once worked with a woman that wanted (shudders) "Careless Whispers" played as her first dance at her wedding, no, really....I had to get her the lyrics to convince her it was a bad idea. Still....this song is actually quite a positive one with a really nice philosophy, life by the drop...each one special and precious with no lack of redemption. I think your comment is a bit bitter, really, if all you can read into it is a drop of whisky.

I think of him often.....and always after hearing this song. 
God I miss SRV. One of my all time fav's. Lucky enough to see him and Double Trouble play at my spring weekend at SUNY New Paltz in 1984. What a show.
 
Colossal tune from SRV - I wish he'd done more acoustic recordings! A proper guitar hero lost far too early... {#Guitarist}
A latter day master.  Awesome cut; unplugged before it got cool.
Love SRV, and this is a particularly shining example as to why.

Concise and accurate opinions. No place celebrates mediocrity and weird like Austin. Houston is unlivable but to Houstonites, If you are homesick for most parts of the northeast see Dallas. If you want a more conservative but very Texas experience with culture (yes there is such a thang) go to Ft. Worth, if you want to visit Mexico but keep your head atop your neck see San Antonio and El Paso. If you like your politics teaparty see Midland, Amarillo and Lubbock. You can see beach, swamps, pine forest, plains, desert, high plains and mountains in a single day of travel and never leave the state.

I love this song. Yes, it is easy to play and I think that was on purpose. This song was meant to be simple and pure. This song was written by Stevie and Doyle Bramhall about their experience being in recovery from addiction - "that's how it happens livin' life by the drop" - a double entendre. In fact, I believe it is specifically about how Doyle tried to get Stevie into recovery unsuccessfully for some time (or I may have it backwards). In honor of Stevie, Doyle still picks up a sobriety medallion for Stevie at what was his primary meeting in Texas. That kind of transformation is amazing.
 
This made me suddenly remember a song called "Wait this Longing Out" by Arc Angels (Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhill, and some of SRV's backup band.) There's a line in it:  "I felt so much pain.... when they put away Stevie Ray..." Your comment, with these lyrics, makes the whole thing even more tragic and triumphant.  RIP, Stevie Ray. You fought the fine fight, and you went down victorious. Your fans will never forget.

I've read through a lot of the comments on this song, and all I can add is this:  I saw him in concert, in Salem, Oregon, and he was dressed in black and gave a breathtaking performance. I was there for John Hiatt, because at the time, I wasn't a SRV fan - but the whole show was awesome. I wish I'd had the pre-cognitive powers to know that what I was seeing would be one of his last performances. I wish HE could have seen it - but probably, even if he could have known, he'd have done things exactly the same.

When I saw him, he was clean, sober, and totally on top of his game. That's how I'll always remember him.
Dear Lord yes.

Seek out tracks from the MTV Unplugged appearance, Rude Mood and Testify are particularly awesome. Also Lenny from the Live At Carnegie Hall Cd is achingly beautiful. Sigh...

Lived in Paradise, MI for a few years as a kid. Great place to live as a kid, not an adult (unless you like welfare and excessive drinking). My parents owned the Little Falls Inn and Red Flannel Saloon, being less than 10 miles from Whitefish Point I can't tell you how many times I heard "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" on the bar jukebox. Always gives me a smile when Bill plays it here.
 
First move was to N.O. and yes, it was like a planet change in many ways, but the ghetto kids thought I was crazy, so they left off the usual harrassing and they learned I was an ok guy to be around.
The move to Texas was wrenching financially, but things have finally turned the corner (got all the bills paid off, and then got damned good raise late last year!!). Texas is much more to my liking in many ways. Michigan is home, but the bottom third (and the fools voting for bozos like Stupek) made the state unlivable (If everyone who lost a job in Michigan just this recession still lived there, the unemployment would be twice the rate now, and kids like me never stayed. 120 graduated and 6 years later and only 4 still lived in the area). So I go for visits. If I hit a lottery, I'd get some land in the woods, otherwise I'll not live there unless things change massively.
Tis sad, really.

You're all class there, slick. Here's to seeing you in Hell. {#Cheers}
 

Ah, see, there's your problem, you believe in fairy tales about an afterlife, and eternal damnation, and shit like that. Hence the insistence on having respect for "the dead" which really means, either having respect for a rotting bit of organic material, quietly minding its own business and decomposing; or it means having respect for the memories of people who, if you apply your fairy-tales to their lives strictly, are all going to Hell anyway. So why should I have respect for dead people, who by your rules (if you're a believer that is) are going to burn in hell? And if you're not a believer, then why have "respect for the dead" at all?

And by-the-by, you are a prude. You just haven't caught up to the fact that you've become your parents. It's okay, it happens to all of us.

Just heard this yesterday morning on my drive in. It's ALWAYS a pleasure to hear SRV!
I love this song, allways liked to hear SRV just tear notes out of his guitar but had heard him do some accoustic stuff and he really was good on one so add that to his personal struggles and this is great song
