JERRY FORNEY BLUES BAND

Jerry''s playing began as a child in the 60''s, learning the chords his Mother Kay showed him ...

"Mothers are more in tune to the feelings and the sensitive side of things growing up sometimes, says local blues guitarist Jerry Forney, who covered J.B. Lenoir''s blues classic "Mama Talk to Your Daughter" on his latest CD, ''POOR BOY BLUES''. "Sometimes women are in touch with things that men aren''t."

''FAT DOG BLUES'' Fan Review:

If I were a DJ on a radio station anywhere on the planet I would have to say add the CD ''Fat Dog Blues'' to your Blues music library. My favorites are "Fat Dog Blues", "Down in Jo Town", and "Baby''s So Fine". I really need to say that it has been a long time since I have listened to a great ballad and I fell in love with "The Ghost"; one of my favorite ballad signers is Gordon Lightfoot and I put this song in the same caliber. But I am not a DJ. just a gal that knows what she likes. Thanks again to Jerry and his Band for some great listening and dancin'' tunes.

Artist of the Week: Jerry Forney
By Jonathan Houghton

For Bluesman Jerry Forney, no recording can quite capture the sound of his band''s live sound. But you wouldn''t know that by hearing the Jerry Forney Blues Band''s latest CD, ‘POOR BOY BLUES‘. "We''ve yet to record an album that sounds like us when we perform," he says. "It''s just an indescribable thing that happens live, that the people create."
Forney, has had plenty of experience in front of audiences; he got started in music early, learning to play guitar well enough to start performing before he was even old enough to drive. "My first gig, my Mother had to haul us in a station wagon, because no one in the band had a license," he laughs. After graduating from high school, Forney moved to Nashville to work as a sideman for other artists, including the great Charlie Rich. While there, cutting a CD with his Nashville band. "The Forney Brothers", recorded in 1979, was Jerry''s first recording. The Nashville Tennessean quoted, "The album retains the live feel of seasoned players!" Austin, Texas, was Jerry''s next move where he began working with many other artists and doing his own thing. He recorded his own style of blues with the album "Jerry and the Juke Jiants" while working all the clubs from Antone''s to the Kerrville Folk Festival.

"I''ve been a player all my life, and in order to do that, you''ve got to play everything in order to make a living," he says.

From an adolescence spent absorbing the sounds of AM radio to a career performing for audiences across the country, Jerry Forney has made a life of the blues.

Q: How''d you get interested in music?

A: My brother Ed used to go to the rock ''n'' roll shows in the ''60s. He''d go hear the Green Giants, the Chessmen, the local bands who played the R&B stuff, and I''d hound him to take me along. I started gigging in 1966, 1967. (Blues at that time) was mixed with the rock ''n'' roll. The first stuff I really got into was Eric Clapton and his band. He was the one who really got me into it, he and B.B. King. Then, when I was 15 or 16, I saw Freddie King up in Des Moines, Iowa. That nailed it for me.

Q: When did you start playing professionally?

A: My brothers Phillip and Larry and I had bands in the late ''60s together. We did real good; we traveled all over the country and ended up moving to Tennessee in 1975, and did an album down there in 1978. That album was really a variety of stuff, really kind of rock, that outlaw kind of sound; just trying to make a living playing what you could.

Q: Who do you listen to in your spare time?

A: I''ve got a favorite guy that''s got me excited, Big Jack Johnson. He''s just hanging out there in the Delta, playing the jukes. He''s got that raw (quality) that I have. I''d heard of him, and a friend gave me some music, and I think he''s going to be (performing) in Kansas City soon. You''re never too old to keep checking into people, and learning from them.


Musician Turns to Roots
By Stephanie Stangl
Posted March 27, 2005
... Since then, Forney basks in such memories of playing alongside Sun Recording artist Charlie Rich, headlining Blues on Grand, in Des Moines, Iowa, and recording in Fame Recording Studio in Alabama.
His fondest memory of the business wasn''t scribbled down on a bar schedule or enclosed within the walls of a recording studio.
"All the rest of my band members went back to the motel after a show in Oxford, Miss., but I decided to go to the bar instead," Forney said. "There was a guy playing the clarinet and another playing an acoustic guitar, so I just decided to grab my guitar and played along with Duke Meric and The Millionaires."

Forty-plus years, five albums and countless gigs later, Forney continues to write and perform music.
... Over the years, Forney teetered between country and blues music but finds himself always coming back to blues because it feels ''more at home''.
Inspiration for a song strikes Forney in a way common to most artists. "I am moved to write a song when I am either extremely depressed or feeling really good," Forney said. "I don''t like to listen to anyone before I start to write a song though, because it really goofs me up. I have a definite sound of my own and always want to do things my way."

Local fans have gushed to Forney that "Burlington Railroad Blues," a song describing a railroad he and his brothers used to play on and around while growing up in Hopkins, is their favorite tune because of the memories it stirs within them.
"I think people like that song the best because of how much they can relate," Chris Irwin, Forney''s neighbor, said. "I love his music; it tells so much about him."
When it comes down to it, Forney''s favorite things are the simple things. "What I really want to do is just drive my bus and play my music."
... A chrome-lined vintage tour bus which he is restoring to take his unique sound on the road ...

Jerry Forney Blues Band Fan Review:

I have been listening to the CD ''ICE & STEEL'', by Jerry Forney Blues Band since 2002. Number one on my list is "El Diablo" with "Hard Times Ahead" a close second. At our staff Christmas Party we played "El Diablo" and "Red Headed Woman", the dance floor was happening! Look forward to hearing more from this band ... I think Stevie Ray Vaughn would have been impressed. Rock on from beautiful British Columbia, Canada.


And ...
Guitarist Phil Vandel said in a interview with Jonathan Houghton: "I enjoy the fast stuff, but I enjoy guys who play from their heart and not from their head. I was working on a record with Jerry Forney one time, and I was playing a million notes to his one, and he said "Son, you''ll be a pretty good guitar player; some day when you learn to play the notes that count."

And ...
At the First Ward House''s weekly blues jam, guitarist Jerry Forney takes a different approach to running the proceedings, says bar manager Jerry Vanderpool. Forney stays onstage most of the night, with other musicians sitting in or trading back and forth during songs. "Sometimes, all the musicians aren''t world-class musicians," Vanderpool says. "But Jerry Forney IS."

FAT DOG BLUES
Lyrics by Jerry Forney:

MORE PRETTY GIRLS
When you''re Baby leaves you it ain''t no fun.
Well, go get another and get the job done.
Get yourself together, get yourself slick.
Get yourself some money, go out and get it quick.

''Cause there''s More Pretty Girls than one.
More Pretty Girls than one.
Go on out and get you one.
There''s More Pretty Girls than one.

Well, get yourself a gig, get yourself a car.
Put your band together and squeeze your guitar.
Just go out and get it, get it goin'' on.
No woman bother you when you''re solid gone.

''Cause there''s More Pretty Girls than one.
More Pretty Girls than one.
Go on out and get you one.
There''s More Pretty Girls than one.

There''s one with big brown eyes.
There''s one with little ears.
There''s one small and tall with hair down to here.
There''s one that''s built for comfort,
One that''s built for speed.
One that''s built to last, now that''s the one you need.

"Cause there''s More Pretty Girls than one.
More Pretty Girls than one.
Go on out and find you one.
There''s More Pretty Girls than one.


LAKE OF FIRE
Hey Red Man how does it feel,
Stuck in the cogs of a white man''s wheel.
Killin'' people in the name of good.
If I could change this world, Baby I would.

We''re going down to the lake of fire.
We''re going down to the lake of fire.

Meli Massacre and Wounded Knee,
Ain''t no difference if you''re asking me.
Killing people in the name of good.
If I could change this world, Baby I would.

We''re going down to the lake of fire.
We''re going down to the lake of fire.

Foolin'' around with fire in the sky.
We know better, you and I.
''Cause we''re killin'' people in the name of good.
If I could change this world, Baby I would.

We''re going down to the lake of fire.
We''re going down to the lake of fire.


COME BACK HOME
Here I go Babe all mixed up in love with you.
Here I go Babe all mixed up in love with you.
What makes you Baby do the things you do.

Come Back Home Babe, Come Back Home to me.
Come Back Home Babe, Come Back Home to me.
You know I love you, I''m livin'' in misery.

Made me love you then you said good-bye.
Made me love you then you said good-bye.
You made me love you and then you made me cry.

Come Back Home Babe, Come Back Home to me.
Come Back Home Babe, Come Back Home to me.
You know I need you, I''m livin'' in misery.


MY BABY''S SO FINE
She rocks the rafters right off my roof.
She sneaks my whisky when it''s 90 proof.
She always loves me when the sun goes down.
She drives me crazy in her evening gown.
Hey, hey .. my Baby''s so fine.
Hey, hey .. I love her all the time.
Hey, hey .. my Baby''s so fine.

She got a tail like the devil do.
She can boogey, believe me you.
She always loves me when the sun goes down.
She drives me crazy in her evening gown.
Hey, hey .. my Baby''s so fine.
Hey, hey .. I love her all the time.
Hey, hey .. my Baby''s so fine.

She''s my Baby ..
She''s my Baby ..
Ahhh, I love her all the time.
She''s my Baby ..
Oh, She''s my Baby ..
She''s so fine.
She''s mine.
She''s so fine.

Ahhh, She''s my Baby.
She''s mine.
Ahhh, She''s so fine ..
She''s my Baby .. She''s mine.


DOWN TO DALLAS
I got a big black car,
I''m going to drive all night,
Headed down to Texas
Play the Blues tonight.

We''re gonna ride, ride, ride.
We''re gonna ride, ride, ride.
Goin'' down to Dallas,
Play the Blues on my guitar.

I got a little bitty woman, she''s got little bitty feet.
She''s round in the middle, she''s nice and sweet.
We''re gonna ride, ride, ride. We''re gonna ride, ride, ride.
Goin'' down to Dallas, play the Blues on my guitar.

I got a big black car,
I''m going to drive all night,
Headed down to Texas
Play the Blues tonight.

We''re gonna ride, ride, ride.
We''re gonna ride, ride, ride.
Goin'' down to Dallas,
Play the Blues on my guitar.


SAIL ON
I got .. women to love.
Wheels to ride.
Songs to sing.
Stuff inside.

Sail .. Sail On.

I got .. ships to build.
I got .. seas to sail.
I got .. guitars to play.
I got .. songs that wail.

Sail .. Sail On.

I''ve been all around the world.
At the bottom of the sea.
You''re lookin'' for trouble,
Don''t you mess with me.
I''ll play the guitar just like I should.
I''ll put the hot sauce on.
I''m gonna chop some wood.

I got .. women to love.
Wheels to ride.
Songs to sing.
Stuff inside.

Sail .. Sail On.

I heard the 419 comin'' down the track
Heard Freddie King play,
Then I never looked back.

Sail .. Sail On.

Been all around the world.
Seen the bottom of the sea.
You''re lookin'' for trouble,
Don''t mess with me.
I''ll play the guitar just like I should.
I''ll put the hot sauce on.
I''m gonna chop some wood.


GHOST
I was born in Missouri,
I grew up on the farm,
The cottonwoods sang at night
And the woodstove kept us warm.
And the Civil War that followed
Brought hell into our lives
I rode with Quantrill''s raiders,
And I was handy with the knife.

I''m the one some young cowboy he wishes he could be.
I''m the one some old man he says he knew me when.
I''m the one that''s rode a thousand miles.
I''ve killed a hundred men.
I''m the one .. You know my name.

Me and my brother Frank
and Cole Younger formed a band.
Missouri riders robbing banks
And trains throughout the land.
It was Northfield, Minnesota
Where the going sure got rough.
They shot up the Younger Boys
and we''d all had enough.

I''m the one some young cowboy he wishes he could be.
I''m the one some old man he says he knew me when.
I''m the one that''s rode a thousand miles.
I''ve robbed a hundred trains.
I''m the one .. You know my name.

I was hiding in St. Joseph in 1882,
Posing as the cattle buyer;
Tom Howard was my name.
I was shot in the back
and they pronounced me dead.
I watched them fold my arms
and pull the sheets above my head.
And as I walk these hills at night
through these streets I roam.
I''m waiting for the gospel train
to come and take me home.

I''m the one some young cowboy he wishes he could be.
I''m the one some old man he says he knew me when.
I''m the one that''s rode a thousand miles.
I''ve killed a hundred men.
I''m the one .. You know my name.


DOWN IN JO TOWN
Well I know a place Baby that we can go.
It''s south of Savannah and here the boys rock and roll.
The music gets loud .. joints start to sway.
People down on 6th Street they dig it this way.
Down in Jo Town they just call it Rock n Roll.

There''s a rumble in the alley, a ruckus by the door.
Everybody yelling for .. is rocking some more.
Women on the table, whiskey on the floor.
I don''t think I can stand no more.
Down in Jo Town
Down in Jo Town
It''s Down in Jo Town ...

When the sun goes down
they come out of the woodwork there.
For miles around there''s women letting down their hair.
It''s enough to make a Bull Dog break a chain.
Make a man dance like a nut in the rain.
Down in Jo Town they just call it Rock n Roll.

There''s a rumble in the alley, ruckus by the door.
Everybody yelling for .. is rocking some more.
Women on the table, whiskey on the floor.
Don''t think I can stand no more.

Down in Jo Town
Down in Jo Town
It''s Down in Jo Town ...

There''s a rumble in the alley, a ruckus by the door.
Everybody yelling for .. is rocking some more.
Women on the table, whiskey on the floor.
Don''t think I can stand no more.

Down in Jo Town
Down in Jo Town
It''s Down in Jo Town ...

It''s Down in Jo Town
It''s Down in Jo Town
It''s Down in Jo Town ...


WOMEN, WOMEN, WOMEN
Well, they keep me in trouble that''s just a natural fact.
They keep me in trouble that''s just a natural fact.
I want to love a pretty woman like a train loves a track.

Women, Women, Women,
Women, Women, Women,
Ah, they keep my mind a swimmin''.
Women, Women, Women.

Now some guys like them skinny,
Some guys like them tall.
Some guys like them short.
Me, I like them all.

Women, Women, Women,
Women, Women, Women,
Oh, they keep my mind a swimmin''.
Women, Women, Women.

Women on my left, Women on my right.
Women all day, Women all night.
Women, Women, Women,
Women, Women, Women,
Well, they keep my mind a swimmin''.
Women, Women, Women.
Women, Women, Women,
Women, Women, Women,
Oh, they keep my head a swimmin''.
Women, Women, Women.
