Lyrics
i'm sitting 'round the corner,
'coz you drove me 'round the bend . . .
sitting 'round the corner,
and i ain't a-coming back again.

well the way you treated me baby,
well you know you done made me mad . . .
the way you're treating your man now honey,
you know you made a good boy bad.

well i aint no saint . . .
i don't talk so quaint . . .
and i aint got no credit card.
but thats no reason . . .
to give me the rainy season . . .
and go and make my life so hard.

well i'm sitting on the ceiling,
coz you drove me up the wall . . .
sitting on the ceiling . . .
and i aint coming down at all.

well the way you treated me baby,
well you know you done made me mad . . .
the way you're treating your man now honey,
you know you made a good boy bad.

well my eyes are always red . . .
and i forgot what you said . . .
and i don't know what it is i wanna do.
but give me half a chance . . .
i'll show you i'm not a dunce . . .
and i wanna spend my life with you.

i'm sitting 'round the corner,
'coz you drove me 'round the bend . . .
sitting 'round the corner,
and i ain't a-coming back again.

Nice
mix of country blues and rock stylings. I also like the
effects you used on the vocal tracks. Maybe you can share
your secret on how ou achived it.

hey
after listening to this song and then looking at the picture
for 2:35 [(spacemen 3)cover] I'm beginning to see where
you get all your ideas from.

you knows it !
cheers htp,
the ingredients for a country john vocal track are :
a poor tonal range.
sung through the pin-hole mic.
vocal filter 'megaphone' ( on garageband 'jampack' power-up ).
then muck about with the settings in the 'details' menu.
i don't think they've got a 'dio' setting though : )

as my biggest fan htp . . .
you have won a voucher for a free piece of country john merchandise . . .
you can choose from stickers, coffee mugs, t-shirts and hats.

Brilliant Title and Concept!
Hey Country John! I think share your studio techniques!

I've created an ingenious "Suck Filter" that makes
everything I record sound like crap! Problem is I've
forgotten how to turn it off!

Beneath the sonic chaos, this is actually a pretty clever
song. Suitably whacked I'd say!

Put me in for a Country John toilet seat cover. A fuzzy
one, hopefully.

I've always liked this song.
It's a really good song. If I ever play out again I might
have to cover it.
