A vinyl verse

Post by labman » October 12th 2018, 8:33pm

Listening to some old vinyl tonight and this is a fairly obscure piece.

Kudos to those old codgers that can recognize this song from this verse (without google :D )


"We walked in, sat down, Obie came in with the twenty seven eight-by-ten
Colour glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back
Of each one, sat down. Man came in said, "All rise." We all stood up,
And Obie stood up with the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy
Pictures, and the judge walked in sat down with a seeing eye dog, and he
Sat down, we sat down. Obie looked at the seeing eye dog, and then at the
Twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles and arrows
And a paragraph on the back of each one, and looked at the seeing eye dog.
And then at twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles
And arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one and began to cry,
'cause Obie came to the realization that it was a typical case of American
Blind justice, and there wasn't nothing he could do about it, and the
Judge wasn't going to look at the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy
Pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each
One explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us."

"Comin' in to Los Angeles - bringin' in a couple of keys. Don't check my bags if you please, Mr. Customs man."
"And in the space of one hour is Babylon the Great thrown down. Not a stone remains standing upon stone - the smoke of her burning does blot out the sun and the reek thereof lies as a deadly pestilence upon the land. Alas Babylon...."

I can hear it in my head but can't place it :scratch: The song is not on the vinyl I've got.

As a young'un every Thanksgiving, before all the guest would arrive, I would head up to my bedroom, open the window, burn one and listen to Alice's Restaurant Massacree

:D

It's from Arlo's 1969 album "Runnin' down the road."

Kids these days. How obscure can it be if they made a movie out of it?

Then again I suppose the movie was pretty obscure at that. But I saw it, in a theater no less.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.
