about

Johnny ran a bar inside a bar, a backroom with a vibe all its own. Mondays were jam nights and I hosted them for a few months. I remember they were good times, but not a whole lot else. My favourite drink at the time was a black Russian and I enjoyed many. The place was smoky, because you could still smoke cigarettes inside back then. There was a pool table, TV, a few tables and chairs and enough room for a few musicians to gather around a guitar amp and some microphones and make crazy music into the wee hours.

lyrics

Listen up close and I’ll tell you a story
‘Bout this friendly, little place I know.
It’s right downtown in a deep, dark alley;
It’s where my friends and me like to go.
So, if you feel like taking a little sip,
why not join me on a trip... to the Other Side.

Johnny’s the man who will make you feel at home
with a pint o’ beer or something harder still.
Whether you’re up or down and out
It’s the place to go to cure you’re every ill.
So, if you want to take a dip,
why not join me on a trip... to the Other Side.

And when the moon is shining bright,
The darkened alley gets a glimmer.
The glassy eyes that catch the light
will pass you things that glow and shimmer.
Breathe deep, breath deep
breathe deep...the joys of night...

Come in to the warmth of this smoky space.
Kick back for a while; take off your coat and hat.
Watch the TV or maybe shoot stick,
listen to the music or just sit and chat.
‘Cause, if you’re feeling kind o’ hip,
why not join me on a trip... to the Other Side.
