Searchin for a song title...

Postby dkal78 » Tue Apr 07, 2009 9:01 pm

Hello all,

I am searching for months to find the artist and the title of a song heard in the "Color of money" movie of 1986. The song is played in the scene where hustler Amos beats Fast Eddie at 9-ball billiard game. Some of the song lyrics are the following:

"...don't bother... sure enough i do... oh well... all of my life... well i sure dont remember"

The song is not included in the OST of the movie and I would appreciate it if you help me out!

Thanks again

The "sure enough I do" made me think of Muddy's catfish routine, which is features on a few of his songs. Sure enough, he's on the soundtrack, so it might be Still A Fool.

Is that the same song as 2 trains running?
That, and Louisiana, was one of my very favorite Muddy records.

Yep, and Voodoo Chile :) I LOVE the song(s) Muddy does in that style, and I can wail it on guitar, or wail it on voice, but bringing both together...there's the thing. It's why I'm not a drummer (ok, secret's out, I'm a frustrated drummer, heh), I can't seperate beats in my head - right hand does what the right foot does. No good timing meter on the hats means no drummer!
