The Chickenhead Blues Band concocts a recipe that’ll tantalize your taste buds and satisfy your soul – never mind the salt & pepper. The stove is fired up, the hambone’s on the boil, and the blues shall pour forth nonstop. The CBB is cookin’ with a vengeance, so bring your kin, come hungry and don’t worry - seconds are on us.

Lyrics

DRIFTER'S BLUES

Written By: Rick Tobey

I'm going where nobody knows my name,
Where nobody calls me if I step out in the rain.

I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
That’s where I'll be free.

I'm drifting, yeah I'm drifting, I'm like floating on the sea,
And where the wind blows me, well that's where I will be.

I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
That’s where I'll be free.

So many roads I have crossed,
Away from home I'm not lost.
You'll only find me there
If the wind blows me there.
So many roads I have crossed.

The water is not jealous of the wine.
I know some places; they're just sweet moments in my mind, so
I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me
I'm going where nobody knows me...
