Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
Little bit of a variation --

The singer Jeri quoted early in this thread passed away about a year and a half ago.

And I can't remember for sure how he sang it in the beginning at the Press Room sessions, but by 2000 or 2001, he was singing it --

On Monday we had bread and gravy.
On Tuesday was gravy and bread.
On Wednesday and Thursday was gravy and toast
But that's only gravy and bread.
On Friday we went to the landlord
To get something else instead.
So on Saturday morn
Just as sure as you're born
We had gravy without any bread.
