Quicksilver Messenger Service One of original SF psychedelic bands Extended song arrangements “Who Do You Love” – Bo Diddley cover
Background image of page 6
Who Do You Love? I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire, I got a cobra snake for a necktie, I got a brand new house by the road side, Made out of rattlesnake hide. I got me a chimney made on top, Made from a human skull, Now come on, take a little walk with me, Now who do you love? Come on Arlene, take me by the hand, Let me know you understand, Who do you love? ... Ride nine times on the midnight train Through the fire and cold rain, Who do you love? ... I've got a tombstone hand in a graveyard mine, Just twenty-two and I don't mind dying, Who do you love? ...

Uncle John’s Band Well the first days are the hardest days, Don't you worry any more, 'Cause when life looks like easy Street, there is danger at your door. Think this through with me, let me know your mind. Woh - oh, what I want to know, is are you kind? It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice. You know all the rules by now and the fire from ice. Will you come with me, won't you come with me? Woh - oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?
