One Hit 04:12
One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. She took, one hit too many my lord, one too many this time, She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. One hit too many my lord, now she land on the side of the road. Land in a pool of her own drool, she ain't nothing but a heavy load. Well I remember the time when we used to drink wine, dressed fine from head to toe now she land in the gutter what a waste of good butter wondering where the good times gone One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. She did one line too many my lord now she working this side of the street selling her stuff out on the corner had the nerve to call it fresh me Well I got half a mind to take her home and wash her up good and clean I bet she ain't had a home cooked meal since she started on the Hollywood scene One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. Well I was driving down Santa Monica Way to get a little late night snack I pulled up on McCadden Avenue, in front of the burrito shack I got the #1 with the rice and beans, hot sauce just to make it right I looked over my shoulder she was up in the corner, making love to a transvestite. One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line. One hit too many my lord, one too many this time She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.

Feelin's 04:30
It's a dilemma but I think I remember my way back to the top I think I remember where I went wrong and my song and my stage began to collapse. I was singing bout' a good time I never had.... I had a smile but I was feelin' sad Ain't nobody up in the kitchen cooking no more and girl you know I'm feelin' low since you been gone don't you know, I'm feelin' low Do you remember when I told you I'd do you a favor and help you pack? Think I was delirious crazy, cause as soon as you start burning rubber I wanted you back now ain't that crazy I was dreaming bout' a good time I never had... I had a smile but I was feelin' sad Ain't nobody sleeping in the bed no more and girl you know I'm feelin' low since you been gone don't you know , I'm feelin' low don't it make you feel don't it make you feel don't it make you feel don't it make you feel when you're laying in the bed ain't nobody to roll over on I know it make you feel I know it make you feel like you wanna get down on your knees and cry I know it make you feel I know it make you feel don't it I know it make you feel

He wearin' my Sunday best He got my brand new shoes and my brand new vest oh he done went to far, he done tried to jump in my cadillac car Oh Mr. Blues won't you leave me alone Oh get out of my get out of my home.

about

He jammed on guitar and keyboard for the pioneering rock-funk-ska band Fishbone for eight years and has toured and recorded with artists as acclaimed and diverse as Miles Davis, Eminem, Dr. Dré, Nikka Costa, Bruce Hornsby and Everlast. His 2003 self-titled debut as a frontman earned raves in the New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, and Rolling Stone.

Now John “JB” Bigham, aka The Soul of John Black, turns his prodigous talents to The Good Girl Blues, a “funky blend of blues, soul, and rock” that merges rootsy, bluesy fundamentals with modern soul, funk, and hip-hop influences.

From “The Hole,” a wailing 21st century re-imagination of a 100-year-old field holler, to the old-school, uptown soul vibe of “I Got Work”, to “Slipin’ and Slidin,’” an instrumental with a mysterious backbeat highlighted by DJ Phizz Ed on turntables, Bigham’s sly, intimate vocals and unique guitar technique on acoustic, electric and slide provide the unforgettable groove.
