The Bomber

Lyrics

by

James Gang



When I became of age my mama sat me down
Said "Son, you're growin' up, it's time you looked around"
So I began to notice some things I hadn't seen before
That's what brought me here knockin' on your back door
Oh, yeah

A closet queen, the busstop's dream, she wants to shake my hand
I don't want to be there, she decides she can
It's Apple Dan, he's just the man to pick fruit off your branches
I can't sleep, and we can't keep this cattle on my ranches
Oh, yeah

It's too strong, something's wrong and I guess I lost the feelin'
I don't mind the games you play, but I don't like your dealin'
God looked bad, the luck's been had and there's nothin' left to smoke
Will I be back tomorrow for the punchline of the joke?

@Justin...Jimmy Page's 1959 Les Paul was a gift to him from...Joe Walsh. Any chance a James Gang album and LZ 4 could have been made with the same guitar?

The version that appeared on the album did feature part of Vince Guaraldi's mid-1960's "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" in the body of the song; a nice touch by the Gang.

Guaraldi's original was heard by TV producer Bill Melendez, who decided to hire Guaraldi as music director for the upcoming "Peanuts" TV shows.

You know something.... I like the James Gang because of their other hits "Walk Away" and "Funk 49". When I tried to look up those 2 tunes, I was really surprised they weren't there!! But.... anyways.... that's my 2 cents worth.

I've seen the James Gang in a reunion concert, it was amazing, they're great.
