Bouquet of Barbed Wire – A Quadrille

Bouquet of Barbed Wire

She wears her
crown of brambles
as if it were
sackcloth and ashes
A bouquet of barbed wire
had been accepted
and was now her brand
The pain rests heavily
in her heart
Forgiveness for herself
an impossibility 
For her dignity
he had stolen

Song Lyric Sunday – The Same Thing

This week Song Lyric Sunday host, Jim Adams, has prompted us with ‘Same and Different’ I decided to go with ‘The Same Thing’ performed here by the Allman Brothers because I really like their version of the song. I hope you enjoy it.

The song was written by Willie Dixon in 1964. He was a Chicago blues artist, perhaps best known for his songwriting. He wrote or co-wrote over 500 songs and his work has been recorded by some of the best-known blues musicians of his era, including Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and Little Walter. Later, some of his songs were popularized by rock groups, such as the Rolling Stones, Cream, The Band, Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers and Led Zeppelin. Musicians in several genres have interpreted Dixon’s songs.

make a man go crazy, a woman wear her dress so tight
make a man go crazy, a woman wear her dress so tight
must be the same thing make a tom cat fight all night.
make you feel so good when your baby get her evening gown
make you feel so good when your baby get her evening gown
must be the same thing make a preacher lay his bible down.
woah that same thing,
woah that same thing,
tell me who is to blame,
whole world fighting about that same thing.
what makes all these men chase a big leg woman down,
what makes all these men chase a big leg woman down,
must be the same thing make a poor dog a hurtin' hound.
woah that same thing,
woah that same thing,
tell me who is to blame,
whole world fighting about that same thing.
oh that same thing,
woah that same thing,
tell me who is to blame,
whole world fighting about that same thing.
