Friday Random Name That Tune. . .

Answer key is at Harp and Sword.

1. Bukka White - "Parchman Farm Blues"

Judge give me life this mornin' down on Parchman Farm (2x)
I wouldn't hate it so bad, but I left my wife in mourn

Oh, goodbye wife, all you have done gone (2x)
But I hope some day, you will hear my lonesome song

2. DustPuppyOI scores with "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks - (side note: right before Meredith broke out with this, I was called to shore up her back up band for some high octane L.A. gigs. My first comment after my agent described her to me was "Oh, great. A chick with a guitar and an agenda. Just what the business needs." I ate my words over the course of the next four days. No sauce, no salt, just shitty bullshit words. One of these days I might learn to watch my fucking mouth.)

I hate the world today
You're so good to me, I know
But I can't change
Tried to tell you but you looked at me like maybe I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet

3. Our own Jen scores with "Punk Rock Girl" by the Dead Milkmen

One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead
I met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead

Punk rock girl, Please look at me
Punk rock girl, What do you see?
Let's travel round the world
Just you and me punk rock girl

4. Myrtle Hussain June identifies "Away, You Rio" I was listening to Stan Rogers (miss ya hoss)

Oh, the anchor is weighed, and the sails they are set.
(Way, you Rio!)
The girls that we're leaving we'll never forget,
(For we're bound to the Rio Grande)
And away, you Rio! Way, you Rio!
The girls that we're leaving we'll never forget,
For we're bound to the Rio Grande!

5. D. Potter picks "Ma, He's Making Eyes At Me" Pearl Baily

Ma, he's making eyes at me
Ma, he's awful nice to me
Ma, he's almost breaking my heart
I'm beside him
Mercy! Let his conscience guide him!

6. darms and drobnox were close enough to call "tie" on "I Talk To the Wind" King Crimson
full point both ways.

Said the straight man to the late man
Where have you been
I've been here and I've been there
And I've been in between.

7. "No Diamonds in the Mine" Leonard Cohen

The lady in white, she's asking for revenge
The man in blue (that's you) says he has no friends
The river is swollen up with rusty cans
The trees are burning in your promised land

8. D. Potter also gets "End of the Line" Traveling Wilburys

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
Well it's all right, doing the best you can
Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand

9. "A Chicken Ain't Nothin' But a Bird" Cab Calloway

Nice fried chicken!
Barbecued chicken!
Won't you send it down the line.

10. Jen also points on "The Obvious Child" Paul Simon

I'm accustomed to a smoother ride
Or maybe I'm a dog who's lost its bite
I don't expect to be treated like a fool no more
I don't expect to sleep through the night

Bonus Track (what's playing right now) This was figured out first. I love this song. I was listening to the composer, David Mallett, who wrote this beautiful little song for Sesame Street.
Point - Myrtle June

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
Gonna mulch it deep and low
Gonna make it fertile ground
