Allman Brothers Band, The - Desert Blues Lyrics




Can't get no this
And I can't get no that
Can't get no you know
I don't even know where it's at
Ain't got the smoke and uh, ain't no booze
Got them low down dried out
Desert blues, yes I do
Uncle George calling said I had to go
Just what he wanted I did not know
I'm over here dug in so far from home
Lookin' all around try and
See what's going on
I got the sand in my collar
Got the sand in my hair
Got it in my pockets
Got it everywhere
I got sand in my shirt
Got it in my shoes
Got them low down dried out
Desert blues, yes I do, how
How how
Joined up in the army
Where it was hard to find
End up over here, got my ass on the line
But I'll be right here until my work is done
If I get back home I hope I
Never see no more guns
Here across the ocean
I left some of my good friends behind
I hope somebody's thinking about me
Especially that sweet little woman of mine
Can't get no this
And I can't get no that
Can't get no you know
I don't even know where it's at
Sand in my collar
Got the sand in my hair
Got it in my pockets
Got it everywhere
I got sand in my shirt
Got it in my shoes
Got them low down dried out desert blues
Yes I do

  1. James Kohlwaies

    Allman Brothers Band do John Lee Hooker...."how, how, how, how".....

  2. Joeh6263 H

    This song is basically a tribute to Desert Storm veterans.

  3. James Kohlwaies

    Jaimoe was right. He said the Allman Brothers bands were like the Miles Davis quintets....I agree...,different players, different sounds, always something interesting and sometimes something great like this track...

  4. Vulcan Man

    Love this jam!
