"Too rolling stoned" as written by and Robin Trower....
Oh a stitch in time, just about saved me
From going through the same old moves
And this cat is nine
He still suffers
He's going through the same old grooves
But that stone just keeps on rolling
Bringing me some real bad news
Takers get the honey
Givers sing the blues

Too many cooks yeah spoil such a good thing
I know I laughed out loud but that was then
Ain't it funny, a fool and his money
Always seemed to find was those real good friends
That stone just keeps on rolling
Bringing me some real bad news
The takers get the honey
The givers sing the blues

Well that stone keeps on rolling
Bringing me some real bad news
The takers get the honey
The givers sing the blues

A stitch in time, helps to unfold me
Circus starts at eight so don't be late
Please be so kind not to wake me
I think I'll just sit this one out

Well I'm too rolling stoned
I'm too rolling stoned, yeah
Like a rolling stone
Just, just, just like a rolling stone
Rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling stone
Yeah, too rolling stoned
Oh just like a rolling stone

    General CommentIf you did not know better you could mistake Trower for Hendrix at times- some of the guitar work is very similar and I guess that's why Trower is ranked so highly as one of the worlds great players.

    General CommentGreat song, heard it for years and only recently listened closely to the lyrics. British blues at its finest. The singer James Dewar has such a clear and deep voice, perfect for these melancholy lyrics. Seems like a guy has been screwed over by his girl and possibly/probably a friend of his. Took his love, his woman, his money, his friendship. Takers get the honey, Givers sing the blues. Oh, yes, how true.
