Well in the immortal words of Otis Redding and covered ohh so well by the Black Crowes:
“Baby here I am
I’m the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta come home with me”
[NOTE: It was on this tour when I first saw the Black Crowes - Awesome band live! I cannot wait to see them in July at Bluesfest]
