Lost Gem: "Little Lilly" - Widespread Panic (2001)


"Round and round and round she goes like Shirley's curlies at the movie show."
~ Widespread Panic ~ 


Widespread Panic is a wonderful jam band in the tradition of the Dead and Phish. Allman Bros quickly come to mind, as well.

Hailing from Athens, Georgia...this jam-rock jewel is especially enjoyable live...sweating like a chain-gang on a horse with no name.

However, Widespread Panic make some pretty excellent studio albums too.

"Don't Tell The Band" (2001) is a sweet treat...filled with tight songs that hit that smooth groove button.  Deadly and satisfying...and often. 

Lost Gem:--> "Little Lilly"...is classic Widespread Panic that finds its slide-glide early and sticks it to your ears.

Have you heard this gem?


Oh, Lilly likes Beatles songs
The words are off, but they don't feel that wrong
She came in through the bedroom
window like a blue girl
Like a blue girl, like a blue girl

No, never has she tried too hard
Lord, her whispered words could mend broken hearts
Her sundress shines through a hurricane
Making all boys squeal like swine before pearls

Hey, Little Lilly,
Don't believe everything you see
Hey, Little Lilly,
Don't believe everything you see

'Round and 'round and 'round she goes
Like a sweetheart's girls at the movie show
Lilly leans back in the very last row
The lights go low, and the show goes on

Even schoolgirls like her way
Oh, marry the preacher, make little angels some day
Silent as a child when the first snows fall
Perfect player in anyone's own little world

Hey, Little Lilly,
Don't believe everything you see
Hey, Little Lilly,
Don't believe everything you see

'Round and 'round and 'round she goes
Like Shirley's curlies at the movie show
Lilly leans back in the very last row
And the light goes low, the show goes on

Lilly likes Beatles songs
The words are off, but they don't feel that wrong
She came in through the bedroom
window like a blue girl
Like a blue girl, like a blue girl

Good stuff.
