James Wayne – Junco Partner

James Waynen alunperin 1951 nauhoittama Junco Partner on kuvaus narkkarielämästä.

Kappaleen on äänittänyt myöhemmin iso liuta muusikoita, mm. James Booker ja The Clash.

“Down the road came a Junco Partner
For he was loaded as can be
He was knocked out, knocked out loaded
He was a’wobblin’ all over the street

Singing 6 months ain’t no sentence
And one year ain’t no time
I was born in Angola
Serving 14 to 99

Well I wish I had me $1 million dollars
Oh one million to call my own
I would raise meat and say, “grow for me baby”
I would raise me a tobacco farm

Well I wish I would have me a great deal of money
Yeah and mighty good things all over town
Now I ain’t got no more money
All of my good friends are putting me down

So now I gotta pawn my rifle and pistol
Yeah I’m gonna pawn my watch and chain
I would have pawned my seat Gabriella
But the smart girl she wouldn’t sign her name

Give me headstone when I die”

Primal Scream – Loaded

Primal Screamin läpimurtobiisin sanotaan kertovan ekstaasista tai mistä tahansa partyhuumeesta.

“Just what is it that you want to do?
We wanna get loaded and have a good time.
We wanna have a party (Yeah!)
That’s what we wanna do

I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love

Just what is it that you wanna do?

I’m gonna get deep down, deep down I said
I’m gonna get deep down, deep down woo hey!

We wanna be free to do what we wanna do
But way baby, lets go

I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love

We wanna be free to do what we wanna do

Oh yeah

We wanna be free to do what we wanna do”

Champion Jack Dupree – Junker’s Blues

Kyllä näissä vanhoissa bluesveisuissa vaan tavoitetaan hienosti tuo fiilis. Hieno on ralli ja hienot on sanat.

“all right… I’m sick as I can be…

Some people call me a junker, cause I’m loaded all the time
I just feel happy and I feel good all the time

Some people say I use a needle, and some say I slip cocaine
But that’s the best old feelin’ that I ever need

Say goodbye, goodbye to whiskey
Lord and so long to gin
I just want my reefer, I just want to feel high again

oh yes I’m a junker
I feel all right

Some people, some people crave for chicken
And some crave for a house steak
But when I get loaded lord I don’t want my milk and cake

oh yeah that’s what I want now…
They call me a junker…
Cause I’m loaded all the time…
But that ain’t nothin that I feel good all the time…”
