Song of the Day – Day 1

Arrived in Seattle Saturday night ahead of schedule, as a tailwind helped cut an hour off the flying time from Florida to Seattle. Unfortunately what we gained in the air, was lost on the ground as our van driver didn’t know where the Grand Hyatt hotel was and we went around in circles for 15 minutes!
 
My wife and i had no sooner checked in when Chad was ‘Johnny on the Spot’ calling me on my cell phone to see if I had arrived, and to make sure that I was coming down to the Sat nite ‘SBS Welcome Party’ at the Rock Bottom Brewery Restaurant. It was great putting faces with names. We had some buffalo wings, spare ribs, veggie tray, small sandwhiches, and plenty of liquid refreshments.
 
While there, Marie McFadden (PSS) kept asking me when I was going to visit them in Charlotte, and more importantly, when was I going to do a Song of the Week for them. So, without further ado, let’s grab James Taylor’s famous ‘In My Mind I’m Going to Carolina’ for a spin!
 
In my mind I’m goin’ to Carolina
(aka When I’m stuck, I’m callin’ Carolina) 
 
When I’m stuck, I’m callin’ Carolina
Can’t you see them workin’?
Can’t you just hear them screamin’?
And they’re just like a friend of mine
When it hits me from behind
Yes I’m callin’ Carolina when I’m stuck

McFadden, she’s a silver sun
You best walk her way while she keeps postin’
Watch her watch the mornin’ come
A silver tear appearing now I’m cryin’
‘Cause I’m callin’ Carolina when I’m stuck

There ain’t no doubt in no one’s mind
That SBS’s the finest thing around
When it’s running nice and fine
But hey babe the sky’s on fire, I’m dyin’
Now I’m callin’ Carolina ’cause I’m stuck

When I’m stuck, I’m callin’ Carolina
Can’t you see them workin’?
Can’t you just hear them screamin’?
And they’re just like a friend of mine
When it hits me from behind
Yes I’m callin’ Carolina when I’m stuck

Dark and silent last night
I think I might have heard the disk drives crash
No backup tapes or logs are in sight
Signs that might be omens say I going, going
I’m callin’ Carolina ’cause I’ve crashed

With a holy host of others standing ’round her
Ray and Cliff, Jorge and Frank they’re on the line

Warren and Terry, it seems like it goes on like this forever
You must forgive me
If I’m up and callin’ Carolina one more time

When I’m stuck, I’m callin’ Carolina
Can’t you see them workin’?
Can’t you just hear them screamin’?
And they’re just like a friend of mine
When it hits me from behind
Yes I’m callin’ Carolina when I’m stuck
