Now if you go out the backdoor of the Mudcat Cafe, make a left down the alley, then turn right at Tiple Street...you find yourself here in the Mudcat Tavern. Yep, it's me, your friendly bartender Lonesome EJ.

Now Max knows about this place, in fact he's dropped in a few times for a cold one. That couple over in the corner sharing a bottle of Cabernet? That's Dick and Susan. You see, this is the kinda place where Mudcatters can come, relax, tell a story, cry on a shoulder,play a tune or two, and best of all... we've got the most extensive selection of beers, wines, liquers, single-malt Scotch, fine Kentucky bourbons, you just name it. Me, I'm working on a frothy pint of Guinness right now. And,shhhh!, look over in the corner. There's Gargoyle. He keeps drinking those Tequila Sunrises and threatening to play a tune on that old beat-up Gibson he's got leaning aginst the table. Mick and RiB said they might drop by for some tunes later, too.

Anyway, I'm glad you found the place. What'll ya have?

A tall cylinder of George Dickel's 12-year will do nicely. Thanks. If I slip you a fiver, would you ask that feller if he could sing a show tune, say, "I Feel Pretty"? I've been sittin' around the house and listening to Nina Simone and could use some cheering up.

Whatcha got on the jukebox, Leej? Sometimes I think I'd like to hear "May the Bird of Paradise Fly up Your Nose," but that's purely personal. Maybe something soothing like "You've Got a Friend." I'll have one tall High Sierra Light--or a Foster's, if you don't have the Sierra (Got hooked on the Sierra at Quinn's Lighthouse when Fadac bought me one--or was it Dave Swan bought the first one? Anyway, Fadac was drinkin' it and I told the waiter to bring me one of the same, and I know I didn't pay for it.)

What time does the open mike start? The stage is kinda small here, so I don't know what we'll do if my whole band shows up--maybe go in shifts, or I guess some of us could sit on the edge. We got some new tunes to play for you; they're good stuff, written by one of our band members. Anyway, I'd better sign us up. Where's the sheet?

Well helloooo there, Bartender. Make mine an amaretto sour and eeezz on the sour, sweetie. Did you say this was close to the Border Up North? I was lookin' for a friend of mine, actually two or three, guitar and banjo pickers, talk kinda funny? Have you seen them?

Too, I thought another friend was going to meet me here, from down the ole' Ohio, let's see he had a funny name, something about a feline foot or something?

How about tuning that guitar up and forget that Bernstein stuff, let's hear some old Hank Williams, darlin', how about "I'm so lonesome I could cry"? Course, I'm not really 'cause you all are here! Nice place ya got here, Mr. Lonesome. This could become a real hang out, ya know?

'Course I like the log walls over yonder as well. Damn! I left my glasses in the car. Could you please tell me what the hell that thing is that's hanging over top of the stage?

Good news, Phoaks, drinks are on the house tonight. Seems that Bert forgot to close his credit card tab last night, so we'll just add em on.

Now that thing over the top of the stage... that Banjer's banjo. When he's sober he plays it pretty well, but after a couple Zima's we have to lever it up in the air out of reach. Keeps the crowd from leaving early, y'know.

Seed...the sign up sheet is that chalk board at the end of the bar. Put your name, who else will be playing, and which tunes. Sorry, no amplifiers tonight.

LEJ, I think he means the other thing up behind the stage. That there above the stage is a mudcatalope. Funniest thing you ever did see. I just stopped in for a Black and Tan, half Guinness and half Bass. The bartender here gave me a Half and Half instead, Guinness and Harp, and that'll do.

I was sittin in the far booth and I scratched a nail on the wall. I think the layers of soot tell the tail of this ol' joint. Got the light gray for the silver mining, dark for the coal, kind of brown for the cigarette smokers from the modern folk Beat days, a white from the salt of the maritime folk, and some sort of green gook from the Celtic folk. Interesting history here.

All this time LEJ and I thought I was the bartender… You better not be skimming the joint. Glad to share the burden, I'll be out here mingling with the crowd of fine folk, if you need me.

Funny thing about the Mudcat Tavern is that the open mic never stops, nor do you have to be Onstage. We got mic's all over the damn place, picks up just about everything. 'Fact, we got technology you ain't never seen before. Just go in a circle and make sure everyone gets his or her fare share of turns and everything works out.

I'll have another Black and Tan please sir, and how's about a shot of Irish Mist. Sshhhhh, Bill Sable's singin' one of his fine ditties. That's a real nice strap he's got, wonder where he got it? You say he makes them himself? I'll be a monkey's uncle, he's one talented SOB.

Jes, yet another night at the Mudcat….

Say what? Oh, OK, if you insist let it down where I can reach it and we'll pick and sing for a while. But it seems like there was as many customers ran out before them Zimas as did afterwards.

What ya wanna hear? Just before I came over I was practising some "I'll Fly Away" and "Ole Joe Clark". Let's see if I can find them on this here neck. I know they was on the other one. Strum, strum, strum, strum, pick, pick, pick, strum, strum, strum, strum, pick......Yeah there it is.....OK here we go....Old Joe Clark's a fine old man...

Where'd that old harness come from hanging over there on the wall...never noticed it before. Banjer, what key did you say you were playing in? If you're playing in C, mind if I pick along on the Autoharp? D'ya want to try swinging right into "I'll Fly Away" after "Old Joe Clark"?

Lot's of fine folks here though so give me a big tumbler of that crap with a 3 chunks of lime......not the little "twists" Leej, big chunks so I can get the stuff down.

So who's got a good song or a funny tale? Aw geez, Banj you gotta' tune that thing again, give us a break here huh? Why don't you and Seed do us a duet....TWO banjos...IYIYIYIYIYIYIYI...What the hell am I thinkin'? Oh well......in for a penny........

I think I will go over and take this Guild and let it have its head on "The Hiring Fair"......"And all were dancing in the lantern light, and music filled the air and I thank the stars for the harvest moon.......and the girl from the hiring fair". Hey Rick, do me a favor? Play a 3/4 arpeggio in D, I'll play the interlude on the Low D. The song title is "Far From Their Home"...............................all right, some of the rest of you take a turn, I want to concentrate on the Fair One...........Leej, I need a proper jar of Uncle Arthur's (Guinness to the rookies among you) and a wine cooler for this fine looking woman here........Could someone do some blues that will make my head bob up and down?

Art, watch that stool you're sitting on. If you keep spinning on it like that the top will come right off. See I told you Max was a regular here- four black and tans and I guarantee he spends the night in the bean bag chair. Catspaw, I can't change a hundred dollar bill on a damn club soda so I guess you're buying a round for everybody. Let's see Max is snoring, Art has the Blood Clot- double Stolichnaya again, Art? Ok- Mick has a Guinness, Alan C the Dickels, Katlaf's got the Amaretto Sour (ouch!),Craig C the Rum n Coke...is that it? Are you drinking Nightowl Darlin? And where did Gargoyle go? Did he leave or go to the john? If he left he forgot his guitar.

Catspaw, I had some relatives of yours and Rick's in here this afternoon. They drank me out of MD 20/20 and sloe gin and then offered to mop the floor and do dishes to pay. The two Canadian guys kept going "EH? EH?" and I told them if they didn't wear those damn hats with the ear flaps, they'd be able to hear what the two Hillbillies were trying to tell them. At any rate, I forgot to lock the back door and they slipped out, but said they would see you at your place for dinner. If those guys are relatives, why don't you try to get them on your dental plan?

Hey Seed, check out Big Mick chasing Alison around that table. Last time this happened, her old man came in and bopped him with a boomerang.

Oh and Allan, I almost forgot. That Catfish wallpaper is one-of-a-kind. It was actually created by fadac using a big channel cat he yanked out of Possum Creek. He pasted butcher paper on the wall, opened four cans of different color paint, and used the old "dip and press" technique to create those images. Stunning,EH?

Aw geez, now I understand............Those two peckerwoods and their Canajun' buddies showed up and ate several helpings each of Eggplant Parmesan and then cleaned me outa' possum jerky. I could have lived with it, but about 5 minutes later they were all in the downstairs bath and, well..........Karen told me to get them to hell out of the house so I loaded them in the van and dropped them all at the Sewage treatment plant. Paw had 'em all convinced that the gurgling and bubbling sounds would be soothing and help them feel better. They'll probably be sleeping there in the morning, the Sheriff will be called, then I'll be called. Screw the whole bunch of them...I'm not answering the friggin' phone.

I gotta' go....Karen's probably mad as hell that I left her with that mess so I'll be payin' some dues for that.

Seed and Banj...you did a fine job. Alright everybody, let's give them the support, the recognition, the cheers, the Clap they deserve.

Hey Mick,

I brought my Guild, too. I'll do you Leadbelly's "Good Mornin' Blues". That should get your foot a'tappin'. I play the bass runs using a G chord formation, but I usually capo up to the third fret to match my voice. I guess that makes it in Bb.

Well, Bseed probably doesn't have a harp in that key. No matter, I'm feelin' generous tonight, so I'll capo up another notch, into B (takes some of the ring out of the 12 string, though). I expect Bseed can cover it now.

I'm just drinking water with no ice (easier on the voice and I intend to be singing). I hear LEJ has a new cook making up a Chicken Fajita for me. Better wash my hands before and after eatin'.

I'll bring you the right drinks fast and with a smile. I know the regulars, but you new folks are welcome, too. I've got a hug for any who need 'em. I might even sit on a lap or two, if you're really down in the dumps. On my break, I'll have a glass of white wine at the corner table & chat with Craig about his lady. Good times come and go, but good friends last. Just one thing, boys, would you mind keeping your smoking to the back room? When I can't see through the air, my allergies *do* kick up!

What's that Joe? You want the words to that one? Well, I thought you could look it up in the DT. Oh! You already checked it out with your lap top? Not there, huh? I'm surprised Max would let the site even operate without that one there. Well, here goes.

Good Morning Blues
by Huddie Ledbetter (AKA Lead Belly)

Late last night, turning from side to side,
Oh, oh, turning from side to side.
I was not sick, I was just dissatisfied.

Woke up this mornin', blues walkin' 'round my bed.
Hm, Hm, blues walkin' 'round my bed.
I went for my breakfast, found the blues all in my bread.

I said, "Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?"
Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?"
"I'm doin' all right, good mornin' how 'bout you?"

Takes a brown skin woman make a moon-eyed man go blind.
A brown skin woman make a moon-eyed man go blind.
But a chestnut woman will make you change your mind.

Woke up this mornin', blues walkin' 'round my bed.
Hm, Hm, blues walkin' 'round my bed.

Got any local brew on tap? I'll try one of those. Put it in a big tumbler; I hate beer glasses. Yeah, a cold mug will be fine. Where'd ya get that Watney's lantern you have out front? I like the sound of those guitars and voices without mikes. Electricity is the worst thing that ever happened to music. Lemme try a Bass this time.

Hi guys - buggerit, did I miss the party, or is this tavern open all night? No, no, I won't be singing this time - just here to enjoy the company for now as it's been a while since I dropped by - BBC honey, if your going past the bar could I have either a pint of cider or a Springbok(Baileys and Creme de Menthe - don't mix them...) depending what's available? Gosh, but your all looking well, if a little frazzled - who's next up on the stage? Den - your dog is really lovely, but does he have to be SO friendly??!! I want my leg back......

Sigh, what a great place....

Mo

Whatever you like, Mo; we've got it all! BTW, alison, if Mick gets too frisky, just give a yell. I'll give him a swipe w/ the bar towel & cool him off.

I'll have a Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout, please! Beer: it's not just for breakfast anymore. I stopped in for the first carbos of the morning and what do I see??? Hey, Mick, can you spend some time for some of the other members of your fan club? Bbc, let me know if you need help when Art gets a little too familiar! I'm so glad I stopped by- Mud is thicker than water!

Hey Leej, it's just occurred to me: if you've really got everything to drink here, can I have a pint of Joule's - mild or bitter, whatever? They shut the brewery donkey's years ago, and I've been dying to know what I missed. Oh, I presume it's still 1/10d a pint?!

hrrmm! hrrrmmm!! I'm a rattlin' boy from Dublin Town, I courted a girl named Biddy Brown ...

I just happened to be passing by, out wandering when I heard the din coming from inside, a few strains of old melodies that sounded so sweet, so I figured I'd just hang out here in the parking lot and kick a few gravels with my foot while I listened....when damned if I didn't think I spotted an old Mercury that Neal Cassady used to drive. You remember what Neal's wife said about his idea of heaven...an old car and a girl.... If memory serves, he was originally from around these parts, if I am where I think I am. I get easily confused these days. This looks like a place that would fit him like a well worn suit. ....anyway I thought I'd just pop in for a moment...maybe I'd see Neal's ghost back there waiting for his father, shooting pool with Kerouac.... bbc, is there anything to eat? You know if Kerouac were in here he'd be eating. Seems like he was always hungry. I can almost see him sitting at that table by the window, crumpled and dirty, gathering himself together after having emerged from that boxcar on the railroad tracks out back. He had a way of describing a sumptuous feast of beans and cornbread washed down with gallons of black coffee as if it were a night of exquisite lovemaking.

Could I just sit at this table by the window for a moment? I can't stay long. Oh hell, while I'm here could you bring me some Beam on the rocks...no, scratch that, I'm in the mood for Austin Nichols Wild Turkey, 101 proof. Kerouac just went back for seconds, and he's talking that stream-of-consciousness stuff like his life depended on it. And if someone could play that "Good Mornin' Blues" they were talking about earlier, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, love...

Hey Alison,

Do you remember, waaay back, when Shula bundled us all up in her warmth and laughter... Alice, you were there too, yes?

Joe and the boys had their noises pressed up against the glass, trying to wish the table full of treats within their grasp.

That was a great party!

I sure miss her.

Sheye

Sheye, as I recall we made every lady an honorary treehouse member after solidarity broke down and food got smuggled out, and the guys looked so pathetic and cleaned their shoes on the porch mat. Then we all partied for awhile, and seem to have ended up here in the tavern. LEJ, a beer for Shula, damn fine woman wherever she is, and however she is. And one for Sheye (FDW too) while I seem to be buying -- is it still snowing out there, by the by?
yours, Peter T. (hic, haec, hoc)

A cast iron skillet'll work just fine at taming dearie Mick down; an Irish woman under full sail as he calls it. Now, Mick, about those Fertility rites; it might be ya need ta coom back with me to the Temple for a bit more instruction in the Art of Finesse. Yes, Art, ya did a good job, but I think he needs a littl' reinforcement! Oh, and where in the Temple Handbook did it say brass bikinis were allowed?? Aiieeee! No wondering Alison was givin' him whatfor! I thought we women were the only ones allowed to wear any Xena-like intimates!

Well, bbc, another for me would be good. Darn computing has got the ole' muscles tight, again. Now, maybe if you all were to speed things up a bit, say to the tempo of Wipeout I might be able to work the kinks out in a dance or two. Used ta be they'd make a circle around just ta watch me shimmy to it. No, no, I'm not asking for that one specifically, just that fast beat, something we can really mooove to, ya know?

LEJ! That was a great fajita!

I'm feelin' a little maudlin tonight, what with the fracas at the 'Cat and people leavin' or thinkin' of leavin'. I think it'll be allright though.

We've got a couple of singers in the crowd. I'll capo up to the second fret and play in C (that makes the key D for the tone deaf out there). This one is a sad sing along. I think most of you will know it. "Have you seen the old man in the closed down market, Kicking up the paper with his worn out shoes?....

Big RiB (if you look closely you might see a tear in my eye)
