about

Inspired by a long-time-ago Shannon and Thee Clams performance at The Knock-Out in San Francisco. At the beginning of their next-to-last song, she sang something bluesy while playing a parallel guitar lick, then they broke and she did it again, and they did it again. It was all very simple, but it grabbed me. To this day I couldn't tell you what song it was.

lyrics

COMING ON STRONG (Cook/Taylor)

Oh when I met her last winter
I took a sip from her loving cup
Until she said I had to quit her
The scale had tipped, and I couldn’t get enough
She can’t be satisfied, and she’s never wrong
Come, come, she comin’ on strong tonight

She wore a bad-luck locket
Of secret spells that nobody knows
She kept her hand in my pocket
So she could tell when I was ready to go
And when the lights go down she’ll go all night long
Come, come, she comin’ on strong tonight
Come, come, she comin’ on strong tonight
Come, come, she comin’ on strong tonight

Now I got a clearer indication
How I fell for her infatuation
Bowed to the mistress of temptation
When she said oooh, I said whoooa!

But who can really blame her when she’s so young
Come, come, she comin’ on strong tonight
Come, come, she comin’ on strong tonight
Come, come, she comin’ on strong tonight
