Medley for David

Erik: Say hello to Bromberg

Steve:   Hello, Bromberg. I've never met you, man, but this song is for you, cause i dig you. I've heard, uh, all kinds of stuff that you've been playing, man, from like Erik Frandsen. So you're a beautiful cat, man, so we ought to get together and play. This song is for you, anyway,

               She Caught the Katy,

She caught the Katy,

And she left me with a mule to ride;

She caught the Katy,

She caught that Katy,

And she left me with a mule to ride;

Well if I find that no-good woman,

I'm gonna tan her no-good hide.

You know I love you,

You know I love you,

Honey, why in the world won't you behave;

You know I love you,

You know that I love you,

Honey, why in the world won't you behave;

Well you're the onliest woman

In this whole round world I crave.

(Plays a chorus of "She Caught the Katy")

STEVE: Play it for yourself once.

(nb: This is Steve talking to Steve.

(Plays a version of Mississippi Blues)

3:10    Goes into " Cowboy Boogie Blues" in duple time

3:40 Returns to "Mississippi Blues ," easing gradually into triple time again.

4:12    I'm gonna have her,

I'm going to have her,

Everyone in Los Angeles knows

FRANDSEN:( Spoken ) Los Angeles!

STEVE: (Spoken)       That's what I said.

I'm gonna have her,

I'm going to have her,

Everyone in Los Angeles knows;

Well if I don't get that good-lookin' brown-skinned woman,

I'm gonna take a switchblade

And cut her no-good clothes.

The "Katy" was a nickname (K.T.) for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad. There is a large train buff siteabout it at http://www.katyrailroad.org/

This extraordinary medley that incorporates three different songs is worth commenting about,

Fans love to hear him making comments to himself while he plays, including all those grunts and moans, and his pleasant little   "alright" when he comes back to the high part in "Mississippi Blues" after playing "Cowboy Boogie Blues" in the middle.
