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.

Losing My Religion

Losing My Religion

There is no copyright on God
It’s a free for all game
All taking a different route
But the ending is the same

Babies drinking scripture
In their mother’s milk
Buddhists shaving their head
In robes of orange silk

Distorted thinking
Insisting God is a warmonger
Murdering innocents
For a life to be lived longer

Women as second class citizens
Covered head to toe
Honor killings and sexual mutilation
With nowhere to go

Men insisting women
Be exemplary in dress
Wigs must be worn
Why? is anyone’s guess

Cajoled into thinking
This way is better
Hatred for the others
In a poison pen letter

Fear-based religion
With a death toll of shame
A Deteriorating social structure
Continuing to Inflame

Search within for guidance
Don’t be persuaded by others
Your sprit will guide you
It will not be smothered
