  1. Oh Darlin'

Composed in 1991. Part of the 820 Sessions. Hungry Larry Stringer on bass, Mark Tiffault on snare and hi-hat, and Tom Townsley on harp. This song is about visiting the Warren Street area of downtown Syracuse, In its hey-day it was where the hookers hung out. I went down there a couple of times with my good girl Wendy G.

Lyrics

Oh darlin’, won’t you take a walk with me
Oh darlin’, won’t you take a walk with me
I’ll give you more good loving
any girl ever need

Oh baby
please take ahold of my hand
Oh baby!
Please take ahold of my left hand
I’ll give you more good loving
any girl ever hope to understand

I’m gonna walk to the creek yard
be back before dawn
Take you upstairs
and lay your body down
Baby!
be careful of the big man
I’ll give you more good loving
any sweet thing ever hope to understand

I’m gonna take you downtown
to the back of Warren Street
where the Red Door used to swing
Charge all the peoples a dollar and a half
just to see you shake your thing
Baby!
be careful of the big man
(yeah, that be me baby)
I’ll give you more good loving
any sweet thing ever hope to understand
