Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/02/18

SLSHelen’s theme this week is phone calls/calling.
I never need any excuse to head towards the song I’m offering this week, even though the link is a little tenuous, and the fact that I’ve already used this on my blog, albeit not for SLS.  It does, however, mention a “phone to ring”, and that is close enough for me!
So, here is one my all time favourites with a plethora of lovely, talented musicians, End of the Line by the  Traveling Wilburys.   I always feel sorry for Jim Keltner, because he rarely gets a mention and he was once described as “The leading session drummer in America.” So, let’s hear it for Jim!

 

 

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
You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring (end of the line)
Waiting for someone to tell you everything (end of the line)
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring (end of the line)
Maybe a diamond ring
Well it’s all right, even if they say you’re wrong
Well it’s all right, sometimes you gotta be strong
Well it’s all right, as long as you got somewhere to lay
Well it’s all right, everyday is judgment day
Maybe somewhere down the road aways (end of the line)
You’ll think of me, wonder where I am these days (end of the line)
Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays (end of the line)
Purple haze
Well it’s all right, even when push comes to shove
Well it’s all right, if you got someone to love
Well it’s all right, everything’ll work out fine
Well it’s all right, we’re going to the end of the line
Don’t have to be ashamed of the car I drive (end of the line)
I’m just glad to be here, happy to be alive (end of the line)
It don’t matter if you’re by my side (end of the line)
I’m satisfied
Well it’s all right, even if you’re old and grey
Well it’s all right, you still got something to say
Well it’s all right, remember to live and let live
Well it’s all right, the best you can do is forgive
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, even if the sun don’t shine
Well it’s all right, we’re going to the end of the line

  1. Yes, this group always seemed to be touted as FAMOUS PERSON times a few, as per the writers of the song, and then any name or face we didn’t really know was dismissed. That seems like the drummer. Poor Jim!

  2. If you want recognition as the star of the show, never be a drummer. Maybe it’s time they took front or centre stage with the rest of the band supporting, would make a nice change.

    I loved this song, still do and re-blogged from you Peter.
