Long Distance Call You say you love me darling Please, call me on the phone sometime You say you love me darling Please, call me on the phone sometime When I hear your voice Ease my worried mind One of these days I’m going to show you how nice a man can be One of these days I’m going to show you just how nice a man can be I’m going to buy you a brand, new Cadillac If you only speak some good words about me Hear my phone ringing Sound like a long distance call Hear my phone keep ringing Sound like a long distance call When I picked up my receiver The party said another mule kicking in your stall.

🎂A very Happy Birthday to the fella on the left -- Buddy Guy!🎂 Muddy and Buddy became pals when Buddy moved to Chicago to pursue his dream of being a blazin’ blues man, working as a session guitarist for some of Chicago’s finest musicians. Said Buddy: “Here’s Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson…and they were having so much fun just playing. And I learned that they were playing for the love of music, not the love of money.” Ain’t that how it should be? Help us by wishing Buddy a Happy Birthday, ya’ll!
