Yeah, Mama don't allow no guitar playing 'round here
Yeah, Mama don't allow no guitar playing 'round here
I don't care what mama don't allow I'll play my guitar anyhow

Mama don't allow no guitar playing 'round here
Hey, Mama don't allow no bass in this place
Yeah, Mama don't allow no bass in this place
I don't care what mama don't allow I'll play my bass anyhow
Mama don't allow no bass in this place

Yeah, Mama don't allow no drumming going on
Yeah, Mama don't allow no drumming going on
I don't care what mama don't allow
Gonna play my drums anyhow
Mama don't allow no drumming going on

Yeah, Mama don't allow no piano players in here
Mama don't allow no piano players in here
I don't care what mama don't allow
Gonna play my piano anyhow
Mama don't allow no piano players in here

Yeah, Mama don't allow no reefer-smoking round about
Yeah, Mama don't allow no reefer-smoking round about
Yeah, I don't care what mama don't allow I'm gonna smoke my reefer anyhow
Mama don't allow no reefer in here

Mama don't allow us all playing at the same time
Mama don't allow us all playing at the same time
I don't care what mama don't allow
We're all gonna play all at the same time anyhow
Mama don't allow us all playing at the same time

    JJ Cale was & is the MAN. He was :( one of the very few real musicians out there that could combine Rock N Roll, Blues, Country and Rockabilly and make it all jive seemingly effortlessly. God Rest JJ - Bright star in the sky just burning brite

  5. gripjim

    The man was a musical genius! And from what I've read, a really nice guy too. Sadly missed.

    mama must have been a drag

    Donald Eisenmenger

    That's fucking funny!!!!...I needed a good laugh today!!!

    kep67

    lots of 'em are

  51. Steve

    I can't stand it when A-Holes need to "add" their idiotic screaming and yelps during quiet passages. "Yeow!" Admission is charged so we can hear the artist, not the A-hole. Scream your throat dry and show your appreciation at the end of the tune, not during.

  52. Helen Lizzy Stewart

    fabulous

  53. Massimiliano Guidotti

    JJ Cale playing is soft and light as the breeze... ❤️ I adore it . May his soul Rest In Peace

    Susan Predis

    That's why they called him the Breeze

  54. Profiledek

    "My music is laid-back, I'm not. I'm really a nervous jerk." RIP master, I'm glad you found your peace.

    JJ - incredible...

  90. brdwonder

    Momma don't allow much do she?  Sure allowed JJ to make something of himself!  He carries the whole song clear through with one lead guitar.  I may be wrong but I suspect the not allowed girl guitar player is JJ's Daughter.  I suspect granny Cale fed all these musicians supper.  Just a guess.....LOL.

    Rattle Shakti

    She's his wife Christine Lakeland

    brdwonder

    OMG! sorry if I ofended.

    Rattle Shakti

    Not at all buddy she ain't mine lol

    Grey Jay

    Yup. That's his wife Christine. An accomplished musician herself.

    Outstanding and amazing JJ Cale... At moments reminded me somewhat of Bill Monroe and his "Southern Flavor"...

  95. Joe

    When I have a kid, gona make sure they get this in the car if I have to give them lifts! Torch needs carrying

  96. Mac Wilson

    Is JJ the reincarnation of Daniel Boone or Tom Sawyer?
