A vinyl verse

A vinyl verse

Postby 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."

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

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.
