This song was getting some play on Beach Music stations, especially on the Surf, 94.9 FM WVCO out of North Myrtle Beach, S.C..
I was listening to it when I heard the singer, Mighty Mo Rodgers, mention Route 66.
Here are some of the lyrics:
"I don't drink. I just smoke. I don't gamble no more. And I don't use no toke.
All I wanna do is be with you. Smoke some cigarettes and have some java brew.
Make it black and strong, that's what I need.
Cause when I think of love, don't you know what I bleed?
I bleed blues, and rhythm and rock 'n roll
All that funky stuff that shakes up my soul."
As you can guess, this is a blues song and a really good one. He then goes into what he said about Route 66 and a certain motel we all love.
Give It a Listen on You Tube.
I'll write his account of a trip on 66 in the next post, tomorrow.
