about

Imagine a few guys on a hot summer night, sitting on a back porch somewhere in, say, rural Louisiana. They’re jamming some tunes, passing a jug, and having a good old time.

“Bring Me Some Whiskey”, a new single written and performed by Vancouver’s JOHN PIPPUS was artfully recorded at AXIS MUSIC PRODUCTIONS with this picture in mind. On the B side you’ll find their take on Robert Johnson’s classic “Stop Breaking Down”.

Track Name: Bring Me Some Whiskey
Bring Me Some Whiskey

Bring me some whiskey
Any kind will do (2x)
If you’re down on the bottom
You can join me too

How long, how long
Must I love you (2x)
Tell all my children
I’ll be coming home soon

My mama tell me
She’s nervous too (2x)
But I won’t let her down
I’m gonna quit this drinking that I do

Pretty soon…

Track Name: Stop Breaking Down
Stop Breakin’ Down Blues (Robert Johnson, 1938)

Every time I’m walkin’, down the streets
Some pretty mama start breakin’ down with me
Stop breakin’ down, yes stop breakin’ down
The stuff I got’ll bust your brains out, baby
it’ll make you lose your mind

I can’t walk the streets now, to consolate my mind
Some no-good woman she starts breakin’ down
Stop breakin’ down, please stop breakin’ down
The stuff I got’ll bust your brains out, baby
it’ll make you lose your mind

Now, you Saturday night women, you love to ape and clown
You won’t do nothin’ but tear my reputation down
Stop breakin’ down, please stop breakin’ down
The stuff I got’ll bust your brains out, baby
It’ll make you lose your mind

I gave my baby now, the ninety-nine degree
She jumped up and throwed a pistol down on me
Stop breakin’ down, please stop breakin’ down
Stuff I got’ll bust your brains out, baby
It’ll make you lose your mind

I can’t start walkin’ down the streets
But some pretty mama don’t start breakin’ down with me
Stop breakin’ down, yeah stop breakin’ down
The stuff I got’ll bust your brains out, baby
Iit’ll make you lose your mind
