Cajun moon
Where does your power lie
As you move
Across the southern sky
You took my babe
Way too soon
What have you done
Cajun moon

Someday babe
When you want your man
And you find him gone
Just like the wind
Don't trouble your mind
Whatever you do
'Cause Cajun moon
Took him from you

Cajun moon
Where does your power lie
As you move
Across the southern sky
You took my babe
Way too soon
What have you done
Cajun moon

When daylight fades
The night comes on
You can hear the silence
Of this song
Don't trouble your mind
Whatever you do
'Cause he got me
Like he got you

Cajun moon
Where does your power lie
As you move
Across the southern sky
You took my babe
Way too soon
What have you done
Cajun moon

We do recycle music sets, yes. We prefer that to random computer-generated playlists.

What a song, what a man. A true musical genius that will be sadly missed. RIP J.J. - your music will live forever! 

 
......... oh yes
Truly one of the greats. He was shy and preferred to stay out of spotight, didn't like touring. RIP!
JJ, the man who made a good living laying down demo grooves for people who usually did not do his music justice. That's the way I see it anyway.
J.J. Cale... takes me back to Tulsa... not a bad thing.

Rest in peace

Same three again just now. Nice segue!
Why oh why did I not start listening to JJ Cale earlier .... ??
Man this guy knows what he's doing.

As for the playlist, I could go for some Yellow Moon by the Neville Brothers .... eh?  Nice so far though!

Looks like he took your suggestion.

Now Playing:

We need Spanish Moon to follow this!
Oh yeah...
Have I just heard Cale, Clapton and Knopfler in this set?  Many nice crossroads...

Best description ever!

JJ Cale has made some of the most irresistible boogie music ever put to disk.
One of my all time favorites from JJC. {#Meditate}
Prefer the "Naturally" album version, but still a 9.

This is why I listen to RP.
This is nice. I was raised outside New Orleans though... :)

Too true, infinitely preferable to the previous artist.

JJ good!
Randy Crawford does a great cover of this, too.
New comments, I see. He and EC have an album out since the last go-round here. Not bad. In an interview, JJ Said it was said of him that he only writes one song. That may be true, but its a good one- it has sustained his career into its 5th decade.

If the album you're talking about is "Naturally" it also is part of my being. My old car stereo finally ate the tape after having played it over and over on my weekly road trips to my boyfriend's place high in the Rocky Mountains so long ago. What memories! Got to get the CD!
Wow what a treat! J.J. Cale! Takes me back to another time & place!
jjcale & clapton back to back= cale wrote them both now joh mayall the master of english pipes(blues) great set cya, dicksr playlist date= 1/17/03 :eek:
Cale gets such a great vibe on his songs sometimes. Warm and lazy and comfortable, really great...

touch my cajun moon
howl like the cajun moon
you go girl
J.J. Cale can do no wrong.
This sort of music/lyrics always sound very true/real, just because its (seemingly) simplicity (the same with somebody like John Fogerty). At the same time you get the feeling there\'s something \'deeper\' going on, like there\'s a story behind it.
I love J.J. Cale. I know his lyrics are pretty simplistic, but it\'s the lead and rhythm guitars that make his songs so good.
