GUEST,CBJames Lyr Req: Cowboy's Dream No. 19 (Dan Hicks) (4) I want to go back, 06 Feb 00

Back in the early seventies there was an album put out by Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks called "Last Train from Hicksville"

One of the tracks went something like –

I want to go back, to where the skies are brighter; I want to go back, doo doo dee oh dough; I want to go back, where people are politer; Doo doo dee a doo dah, dee doo dee ahh dough;

I can smell --- ----; The coffee brewin';

Well you can see there's more doo-dah in my recollection than in Camptown Races. And, this probably ain't folk. I was told at the time it was "Tex-Mex". {Whutever that is}

Marvellous stuff though. If anyone could supply replacements for the doo-dahs on this song, send more lyrics or just give more background on this band, I would be tickled to know.

Many Thanks in advance,
