    Default Johnny Winter lyrics question

    Hi,

    Does anyone have any clue as to what lyrics Johnny Winter used on the third verse of Mean Town Blues when he performed it at Woodstock?

    He was always pretty loose with the lyrics in general, but I have pretty much figured out what the original lyrics he used on the album version are.

    However, at Woodstock he goes off script and the third verse starts with "People sure act funny". But then he doesn't use the rest of the lyrics to that old song, its something else he's singing [or "bluesing"].

    This has become a project, as the song is popular around here to cover.


    Anybody?????



    Thanks for any help!

    I listen to that version occasionally and I think it is "People sure act funny when you come from a small lonesome town." It's not in the Progressive Blues Experiment version. I think of Johnny as half-Texas and half-delta. To the west was SRV and to the east, Sonny Landreth. If you have not heard Sonny, check him out, he's still around.

    Everyone I thought was cool is six feet under ground - JW :"Still Alive and Well."
