"Esquerita" as written by Michael Geoffrey Jones, Daniel Donovan, Don Letts, Greg Roberts and Herman Ezekiel Williams....
Out of Greeville South Carolina
From the Road House Owl Club Him and Sister Rosa
Down to Dallsa and the Dew Drop Inn
The farthest a man can go and back again

It was in Macon at an all night diner
Trying to catch some it was me he took a shine'ta
Said I better give him some of my old clothes
He's in the wrong place wrong time and nobody knows

His real name was S.Q.Reeder
Everybody knew him as Esquerita
Black Flash Gordon Rocket '58
The rock around was busting out interstate

through the green door there's a gospel sound
Dressed in sequins war paint listen to him holler
I guess the Georgia peach came a little too late
The rock around's busting out interstate
Houlaaa

His real name was S.Q.Reeder
Everybody knew him as Esquerita
Black Flash Gordon Rocket '58
The rock around was busting out interstate

Been a long time here in California
Western Union I heard from Sister Rosa
The telegram said S.Q. had passed away
Well now preacher what you gotta say

His real name was S.Q.Reeder
Everybody knew him as Esquerita
Black Flash Gordon Rocket '58
The rock around was busting out interstate

His real name was S.Q.Reeder
Beat up on his woman with a vacuum cleaner
Black Flash Gordon Rocket '58
The rock around was busting out interstate
