This thread is a tad too quiet so I thought I'd spruce it up a bit.  Remember, I said we'd be getting the band together again... Well, last year at the National we sang that wonderful ditty, "COG Riding Girls" (to the tune of California Girls) and since that time I've been working on a little more material for upcoming gigs.  There are some old works and some new works in the pantry for the album "Blue is the Color of my True Love's Tupperware." 
So, right now there are also these "can't hit" wonders for consideration from Rev Ryder and the Revenuers Iron Butt Blues Review:

Evil Tires (to Santana's Evil Ways)
Centerstand (to the Beatles' Yesterday)
Honkin' Conk Blues (to Pirates of the Mississippi's Honky Tonk Blues - a Hank Williams ripoff)
A Little Hard on the Knees (to Joe Cocker's version of You Are So Beautiful)
COGcaine (naturally it's to Clapton's classic, Cocaine)
How Can You Mend a Hydrolock (a ridiculous rip from the Zee Gees that puts the "false" in falsetto)
The Sport Touring COG Blues  (just a typical 8 bar blues with a coast to coast travelin' story line)
Chain Chain Chain - Chains are for Fools (an Aretha Franklin embarrassment)
One More Ride (a Phil Collins train robbery and wreck in the key of H+# just try to find a harmonica that can work with that)
Free Fallin' (an epic "Pin them Bags" Tribute to Tom Petty)
Sultan of Swingarms (yes, even Dire Straits' straits are more dire than anyone thought)
Can't Tour This  (an MC Hammer rewrite. This song postponed until I can find the correct mesh pants and boots for the inevitable music video)
You Laid Down Connie (another Slowhand great gone down for the third time in the parking lot)
KiPass (to the tune medley of Born Free/Rock of Ages)
In the Tank Bag (to the Tokens' The Lion Sleeps Tonight)
Murphskits Shad Mounts (to the tune of Journey's Sister Christian)
And much, much more.

Early reviews are encouraging...
"Pop music never rolled so many eyes nor caused so many groans." Rolling Stove Magazine
"What the %$@# was that?!?"  Jeffy Hulbert aka TurboMax
"I never heard anything quite like that before!" Mike Jagger (Rev's neighbor) 
"You're kidding me... you're actually going to get this recorded?"  Rev's mom in an exclusive interview.

Chuck, I have a suggestion for this one. How about singing this to Clapton's song, Lay Down Sally. You can call it, Lay Down Connie.  ;D

Good Call Jim, you nailed it, that is exactly what it is.  Slowhand = Eric Clapton.
But it's a rant song rather about a love that's hard to steer at slow speeds.  It was written and recorded ten years ago and spent most that time on Peter Hobday's (aka Hogboy) webpage.  However, those pages have more recently disappeared and the material appears lost. There were probably 40+ COG songs there that we collaborated on or did independently.  Some of them were really really creative, some were less so... but all were intended to be fun and expound upon some experience or characteristic that was identifiable as common to Concours owners/riders. 
Lyrics for this song's first verse (to the tune Lay Down Sally) :
Quote
There is nothing that is wrong
With wanting to maneuver through a parking lot.
I know you like a frisky gait,
And that the guy who hesitates is gonna lose... and now I'm singing the blues.
You laid down Connie, all I did was touch the brake
Now everyone's just standin' here a gawkin'.
You laid down Connie, such manners I can't take
And here you lie the crosswalk you're a blockin'.

If ya get the band back together, could you do something with a chorus and make the rest of the COGgers join in!!
I figger' it would be less embarrassing for "the band",, if the other COGGers have to sing too..  :sign0137:

Ride safe, Ted

No Funsize, you sed it wrong.
Ya shoulda sed "I finally got around to making our reservations at the YO Ranch Motel".
  (I made ours "immediately" after we arrived home from this years National).

NOTE: We stayed at the YO last month during the Model T Rally.
          Nice Motel.
          Not as big as the one last year,,, but big and spread out e'nuff that I don't have to see
              Jorge/Rev/etc etc etc... if I don't want to.   :nananana:
          Lotsa parking near the rooms, a gen-u-ine TeXaS style lobby, and properly decorated {TeXaS style} rooms.

Ride safe, Ted

Ted,

I was on the fence about going up until a few weeks ago. I found out that the shop where I'm planning a motor upgrade for the roadster is about an hour away from rally central.   >:D

Still working on getting all my ducks in a row... stay tuned.   ;)
