Subject: Lyr Add: LONG ISLAND COWBOY (Red Molly)
From: Rabbi-Sol

LONG ISLAND COWBOY

I always thought I'd live in Texas
Where life goes by slow
But I ended up in New York City
Where I run, run, run and try to keep up

CHORUS: What I need is some kind of Long Island cowboy
       Riding the L.I.E. like it was a rodeo
       Dirty jeans, pickup truck, Long Island cowboy
       I need a long ranger to carry me home

All these city boys
With their diamonds and roses
No they can't win my wild heart
I need an honest man
Who can rope 'em and ride 'em
Who knows when to let go
And when to hold on with both hands

                CHORUS

And he'd be rough around the edges
O but I don't mind
Just to have him call me sugar
Would be sweeter than wine

                CHORUS
---------------------------------------------------------------------
This song was written by the female trio Red Molly who have recorded it on their EPK album. The trio consists of Laurie McAllister, Abbie Gardner, & CarolAnn Solabello

For those of you who are not familiar with the geography of the NYC metro area, the L.I.E. is the Long Island Expressway, a heavily trafficked commuter route between Nassau & Suffolk Counties which comprise Long Island, and NYC. It is known affectionately as the world's longest parking lot.

You can hear the entire song on Red Molly's myspace site as well as a video on Youtube done at the Town Crier in Pawling,NY.

About a year before they formed Red Molly, I first met Abbie Gardner (who wrote the song)in a guerilla showcase at NERFA. In a room of about 10 people, she shared "Long Island Cowboy" and I was knocked off my feet. With just her and her guitar she gave a performance that I will never forget.

Check out Red Molly!   Also, Abbie will be opening for Modern Man at the Hurdy Gurdy in Fair Lawn on March 11st.

And also remember that RED MOLLY will be doing a house concert for us at The Borderline on Sunday afternoon, March 16th at 2 PM. If you are anywhere in the area of Rockland County you will not want to miss this one.

The above song would go well with "Subway Cowboy" by Christine Lavin.

We are hoping to get Christine to do a house concert for us at The Borderline in November. We have been talking with her agent but at this time there is no firm date or arrangement. If anything concrete does materialize it will be posted here on Mudcat.

Is that "long ranger" or "Lone Ranger"?

The official lyrics as listed on their myspace site say "long ranger". You can hear them singing the song there as well. Go to
www.myspace.com/redmolly Then you can determine for yourself which one it is. All 3 of these women are less than half my age so I doubt that they would have ever seen The Lone Ranger. The song is probably referring to a long bedded Ranger pickup truck.

I spoke to Abbie Gardner, author of this song at today's Borderline house concert. "Lone Ranger" is the correct words. There is a typo on myspace lyrics that will be corrected as soon as she can get to a computer tonight.

It's also clearly "I won't mind" in the bridge, rather than "don't mind."
