Hurricane Jones, - Was My Daddy’s Name
- Larry W Jones (Kingwood Kowboy - alias) original Lyrics from 5090-2019 lyrics-only; then rewritten, arranged and musicated by ustaknow (alias)
Larry and his Daddy, -- still inspiring others 59 years later!
-- Just trying to keep up with the Jones...,
[The mix is a tad on the Bass heavy side, but, it's that 12-String and something I was not watching on the Mixer, so, it is, what is it, and derItis Gudnuff4Gov werk!? )
Well..., my own Daddy’s name, was Ivy the Hurricane
He was known as, Hurricane Jones ...
Yes, he was kin, to the wayward wind…
Mama saw that was the way with him, oh, yahh…
He was born in Louisiana
And my dear Mama was born there too
Now, I was born in Corpus, that’s Christi Texas
Right in the middle of World War Two, ohhh ewww …
Hurricane Jones was my Daddy’s name
Maybe the wayward wind was to blame, ahhh hhh…
Hurricane Jones didn’t leave, no stones unturned
His life rolled on as Hurricane, Ivy Jones, ohhh hohhhah
My Mama raised us kids in Texas
While Daddy worked anywhere he could, he would
Well digger or on a garbage truck driver, at Gladstell Mill
There where he stacked, all the chip, cracked wood
When I saw my Mama’s, hungry eyes
Her tired fingers worked to the bone, like stone…
That’s when I wondered where Daddy was
Just like a hurricane, here and was gone..., ohhh long gone...
A // Em sus //
Hurricane Jones was my Daddy’s name...
Maybe, the wayward wind, was to blame…
