Leon Russell - My Kind Of Hell Lyrics

Your hot coffee & my black tea
I don't know about that
Oh guess we choose to disagree
But I like your pork pie hat
Well your sister always came between us
Claiming she was best
But she hitched a ride to a diplomat
& she moved to Bucharest
While we just sat around an round
Like a dolpha in a bed

I can't say I ever liked you much
But you're my kind of hell
Oh can't say I ever liked you much
But you're my kind of hell

Battle ins field & new york streets
Were watching from a bridge
But what the theif an you said made no sense
To even stole them anyway
Oh a living cheap in an old hotel
Eating rice & beans
Stayin up late takin a bottle each
With a couple of Times Square queens
We just turned the heat up
On the stories we could tell

I can't say I ever liked you much
But you're my kind of hell
Oh I can't say I ever liked you much
But you're my kind of hell


Now I'm sunbathing in the sun
Was always on my mind
But you tanned from the inside out
Drinking coco butter wine
While you sold your past life
Baptist fire was making plans to leave
But you trapped me that ball his bell?
On another new years eve
So I give it up for what it's worth
Crawling to your shell

I can't say I ever liked you
But you're my kind of hell
Oh I can't say I ever liked you much
But you're my kind of hell

    lollololo lmao......look at the two long frames bolted to the side of the Steinway D models so they can be moved with forklifts.

    chuck Blackwell, drummer for Leon, died last night, the only two left are don preston (guitar player with hat), John Galiee (organ) and Patrick henderson.......rip chuck.


    Maryann Lindsey is also still very much alive and so is D.J. Rogers.
    I have no earthly idea how to get in touch with Don Preston, D.J. Rogers or John Gallie.
    I sure would love to send them a complimentary copy of the DVD, seeing as how they are in it.
    Maryann, I consider that lady my auntie...she's wonderful.

    david thayer

    John is still alive and works as a bus boy in tulsa....sigh.........Don preston lives somewhere in colorado, sorty of funny......to find him, there is this guy you have to write a letter to and he MIGHT give you directions to where don lives!!!


    david thayer I would like to get a DVD to them.

    As great as it is to watch Leon on these videos, and Thank God, we can, there was nothing like seeing him and his band(s) live.
    A master musician, a wonderful songwriter, a great bandleader, a unique voice, a true original...There really was nobody like him. If you don't know much about him you owe it to yourself to learn as much as you can. Do a search, you will be amazed at what you find out about him. I have been a fan since the 70's and I'm still finding out new things all the time.

    Leon delivered performances that one might consider the most fabulous church service you could possibly hope for.. Spiritual and rockin' and soul-liberatin'! I never saw Leon live but I am so thrilled to see videos like this.. Thank you Leon and thank you Deep Freeze!
