that version from a bad called Elwood.

BTW, since you're in Australia, have you heard Ed Keupper's version of it??

I had bought Elwood's CD for Sundown, and I have noticed that he added extra lyrics. Does anyone have the lyrics to how Elwood's rendition goes? Or does anyone know/understand Elwood's lyrics, because I have been trying to figure them out and even the first verse is tough.

Elwood-Sundown

Well I can see her lie back in her satin dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess
She was a high pocket, bubblin, movin in the oven and
Turn potato, turn potato, B what's the deal

Sometimes I rhyme slow, sometimes I rhyme quick
When it's time to get busy out the hat comes a trick
So when the sun goes down, you better take care
If I find you been creepin round my back stair

Sundown you'd better take care
If I find you been creepin round my back stair

She's a queen, lookin mean, in a sailor's dream
She gotta come clean, gotta say what she means
She gotta fess up, you is it dress up, oh indeed
And tell 'em how it is, babe bring 'em up to speed

Sometimes I rhyme slow, sometimes I rhyme quick
When it's time to get busy out the hat comes a trick
It's a shame when a game leaves you out the frame
It's the lovable, the sin, that's losin in the rain

Sometimes I think it's a shame
When I get feelin better when Im feelin no pain

See I could picture every move that a man could make
She took steps, she fell in love, and that's your first mistake
You went home, got woed, but you shimmyed up the wrong way
And the sun's going down and I feel like it's my last day

Sundown you'd better take care
If I find you been creepin round my back stair
And sometimes I think it's a sin
When I feel like Im winnin when Im losin again

Yo yo, sometimes the sounds is just more reliable

She let her hair down, make a frown, sat across her florist
At a big city at a clip my mind's on a trip
Day by day the sunshine soakin in a warm bath in the sunlight sunlight

I can see her lie back in her satin dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess
Sundown, sundown, sundown
I can picture every move a man could make
Get lost, fell in love, that's your first mistake
Sundown, sundown, sundown

Yeah she was looking fast in the faded jeans
She's a hard lovin woman, gotta know what I mean
She stepped up in the spot, she made the spot hot
Give it away, give it away, yeah!

And sometimes I think its a shame
When I get feelin better when Im feelin no pain
And sundown you'd better take care
If I find you been creepin round my back stair
And sundown you'd better take care
If I find you been creepin round
Find you been creepin round my back stair
And sometimes I think it's a sin (Im losing again)
When I feel like Im winnin when Im losin again
Im losing again www.ultimate-lyrics.de

none,

thanks, I wondered what he was sayin' in a few places but playing the CD and reading along, it all makes sense now, sort of.
Is there a video of this cut? If not it would be cool if Gordon would do a cameo.
OK you can all stone me now.

Peace
Bill

There is a video of Elwood's version of sundown. It takes place in the wild west days and in an old fashioned bordello.
www.elwoodonline.com - i think the video and behind the scenes video is at his site.

of Alice SPrings

Amazing Gina
yesterday morning was the great CBC Gord interview which you may or may not have heard
the interviewer Sheila somebody in Toronto actually told Gord that she had received an e-mail that very morning from a Canadian girl in the Alice who recounted an amazing evening listening to a folk singer who when she requested a Gord song obliged by singing one then went on to singing Lightfoot for the rest of the evening!!
One of my remaining ambitions having seen most of Europe and Canada and all but a handful of the States is to go from Adelaide to Alice Springs on the Ghan.
I have been impressed with that idea realy ever since reading my all-time favo(U)rite novel "A Town Like Alice" by the great English novelist Nevil Shute and seeing the gorgeous Australian mini-series. My wife and I are members of a New Jersey chapter of a Shute society and are off on Friday to attend a meeting in Cape Cod. Some of the others who wiil be there were in Portsmouth England back in July for a Gathering at which the Mayor of Alice spoke.
A very good friend in England who happens to be not only a Lightfoot fan but also descended from a First-Fleeter will probably retire home in a few years and we pledged that one day we will ride the Ghan together
Sorry to be boring most Lightheads
So what is this "Ghan":-
there is a nice site at:- http://www.gsr.com.au/ghan/
I was also yesterday looking at the Alice Springs town site:- http://www.alicesprings.nt.gov.au/
Some very nice pictures I especially liked the one showing the
"The Todd River in flood through Heavitree Gap" (presumably a rare occurrence??)

cheers
