"Down the Road a Piece" as written by and Amos / Milburn....
Now if you want to hear some boogie like I'm gonna play
It's just an old piano and a knockout bass
The drummer's man's a cat they call Charlie McCoy
You know, remember that rubber-legged boy?
Mama cookin' chicken fried and bacon grease
Come on along boys it's just down the road apiece

Well there's a place you really get your kicks
It's open every night about twelve to six
Now if you want to hear some boogie you can get your fill
And shove and sting like an old steam drill
Come on along you can lose your lead
Down the road, down the road, down the road apiece

Well there's a place you really get your kicks
It's open every night about twelve to six
Now if you want to hear some boogie you can get your fill
And shove and sting like an old steam drill
Come on along you can lose your lead
Down the road, down the road, down the road apiece

    General CommentI had to sing this song in a cover band, and I could never understand the line "shove and sting like an old steam drill." After listening to the original about 100 times, I wasn't even sure that that was what ole Mick was saying, but I couldn't figure out an alternative interpretation, either. Does an old steam drill really shove and sting? What is Mick saying?
