The Endless Note

Mose Allison

I haven’t featured the great Mose Allison for a while, so here is a track which has been popping up on the old iPod frequently so who am I to ignore it.

“If You Live” – Mose Allison

If you live your time will come
I say if you live your time will come
So child don’t mess with that cotton sack
It will scratch your knees and bend your back
And if you live your time will come
If you live your day will come
If you live your day will come
So child don’t play with those pots an’ pans
The will soon enough ruin your pretty hands
And if you live your time will come
If you live a day will come
If you live a day will come
When the sun will shine
And the crops will grow
And you think you’re not gonna worry no more
But if you live, your time will come

“Creek Bank” was a 1994 compilation release of two 1958 sessions.
