All hail the American night!

What was that?
I don't know
Sounds like guns...thunder.

(Roadhouse Blues cuts in here with Jim doing a little audience participation section at the end.)

...Alright! Alright! Alright!
Hey, listen! Listen! Listen, man! listen, man!
I don't know how many you people believe in astrology...

Yeah, that's right...that's right, baby, I...I am a
Sagittarius
The most philosophical of all the signs
But anyway, I don't believe in it
I think it's a bunch of bullshit, myself
But I tell you this, man, I tell you this
I don't know what's gonna happen, man, but I wanna have
my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames
Alright!

    General CommentI think this song is just about having a good time in life and not worrying so much about what comes after.

    General Commentah. hearing the sound of the doors performing live is like heaven to me. the bass line and the organ are so heavy just like any concert. I love listening to this song, and just letting my imagination run, i wish i could have been there, at a live show.

    General CommentTHe most phantastic thing about this song it that of some woman agreeing with Jim in everything.

    "...believe in astrology" - I do

    "I am a Sagittarius myself" - Me too


    "But anyway, I don't believe in it!" - Me neither









    Absolutely fantastic, his power!

    My InterpretationWell, it is about having a good time in life. Dig the roadhouse blues section. "we're going to the roadhouse going to have a real a good time."
