I remember this song from when I was a kidlet. My grandfather listened to the country station (I can still hear the jingle in my head -- "K-A-Y-O one one five oh") so maybe it's a country song. This is all I remember:

"LSD made a wreck of me"

and

"I'm going down to [mumble] prison
Got the monkey off my back
I'm going down to [mumble] prison
And I ain't never comin' back..."

Anybody remember it? Who sang it? What's the name of the song?

Alex

Composer was "Wavy Gravy". I'll have a look and see if I can find the lyrics.

"Wavy Gravy" was the nom d'asid of Hugh Romney, friend of Ken Kesey, Merry Prankster, and toothless emcee at Woodstock. I've seen at least one CD by him, but I have no idea what's on it.Still around and funny.

or perhaps "nom de plume of smoke curling up from out of his left ear"?

Mousethief, it's not Wavy Gravy's Hasidic alias, but his acid-inspired moniker I think LRM refers to...

Wavy Gravy has his own web site, but I didn't find it helpful: http://www.wavygravy.net/

A song called "LSD Made a Wreck of Me" was recorded by Rudy Protrudi on the album "White Trash" – described as "psycho-country music."

It was also recorded by Wendel Austin & The Country Swings. This version has been played on the Dr. Demento show.

Could this be a parody? along the lines of

"What made Tim Leary famous, made a loser out of me"

The following is from Protrudi's site.

LSD MADE A WRECK OF ME
(Unknown - Publisher Unknown)

I was married once to Betty Lou
And twice to Carol Sue
Those doggone women nearly drove me mad
I got hallucination blues
I started using LSD, it gave me quite a kick
Better than booze and easy to use
But it made me mentally sick

Well I'm on my way to life in prison
Got a monkey off my back
Well I'm on my way to life in prison
And I won't be comin' back

I took some knives and I killed my wives
Ran off in the night
LSD wore offa me, I didn't know what I'd done
Until in court my case was heard
And the sentence I got was life

Well I'm on my way to life in prison
Got a monkey off my back
Well I'm on my way to life in prison
And I won't be comin' back

If you ever attempt to use LSD
Think about this story I've told
Women and wine will ruin your mind
And use up all your gold

Well I'm on my way to life in prison
Got a monkey off my back
Well I'm on my way to life in prison
And I won't be comin' back

LSD made a wreck of me
LSD made a wreck of me
LSD made a wreck of me
And I won't be comin' back
