Gaucho Outtakes

GAUCHO OUTTAKES
LWP002

This is indeed a bootleg recording from the Gaucho sessions. It includes "The Second Arrangement" wich was accidentally erased, when an assistant engineer should prepare the tape for listening. For unknown reasons he thought he was at the tail header instead of the beginning when he put all 24 channels on "record". When he discovered his mistake, three quarters of the tune was allready erased. Finally replaced by "Third World Man" on the "Gaucho" album.

The Second Arrangement (full band)

Pour out the wine, little girl
I've got just two friends in this whole wide world
Here's to reckless lovers
We all need somebody
Smashed in yellow Jag
I've got my life and laundry in a Gladstone bag
You should know the program
Just one red rose and a tender goodbye (one last goodbye)

[Chorus]
And I run to the second arrangement
It's only the natural thing
Who steps out with no regrets
A sparkling conscience a new address
When I run to the second arrangement
The home of a mutual friend
Now's the time to redefine the first arrangement again

It's a sticky situation
A serious affair
I must explain it to you somehow
Right now I'll just move back one square

Here comes that noise again
Another scrambled message from my last best friend
Something I can dance to
A song with tears in it
Old friends abandon me
It's just the routine politics of jealousy
Someday we'll remember
That one red rose and one last goodbye (one last goodbye)

[Chorus repeat]

The Second Arrangement (demo)

Pour out the wine, little girl
We got just two friends in this whole wide world,
Ciao, bon giorno, baby
It's been a lovely night, the wine was right,
I am a refugee,
And I like things just the way they used to be,
I'm the same damn fool, that you knew years ago,
So broken-hearted,
One last goodbye

[Chorus:]
Then I run to the second arrangement
It's only the natural thing
The roue steps out, with no regrets,
A sparkling conscience, a new address
Then I run to the second arrangement,
The home of a mutual friend,
Now's the time, to redefine
The first arrangement again


You think you understand,
Let me take you by your hand,
I have never felt this way before,
It's your thing if you say so,
Don't ask me 'cause I don't know,
I don't need this heartache anymore

Pour out the wine, little girl
We got just two friends in this whole wide world,
Ciao, bon giorno, baby
It's been a lovely night, the wine was right,
I am a refugee,
And I like things just the way they used to be,
I'm the same damn fool, that you knew years ago,
So broken-hearted,
One last goodbye

[Chorus]

Kulee Baba


My nom-de-vage is Mexuine*
I carry the proper papers
I seek the primal rhythms of the bush.
I preserve great moments as they come
and sure this must be one.
Brightly colored dancers on the screen
are no more than a prelude to the ritual unfolding.
no white man's eyes have ever seen
the cruel primeval rite that you're beholding.

[Chorus:]
Kulee Baba
coming your way
ev'ry Sunday
Live from nowhere
sat'lite relay
Hell on Broadway

My suit is a bright Irish green
the color and cut are striking
I'm something of a standout in a crowd
Don't chew on that power cable, son
I guess I owe you one.
Bored with my Chief Engineer
I'll mix with the mouth* for all the folks at home.
I'm tasting the local beer
and half the crew is dancing on the fold

[Chorus repeat]

[solo]

Sweet holy Jesus, what a night
Saint Augustine was right
The cam'raman began the kulee baba
the broadcast was over
our featured friends were gone
I hear there's a bash in New Orleans
It's a long finale, we must be moving on
Moving on...

[Chorus repeat]

I Can't Write Home About You


Here in the heart of the city
the night world has no name
I wrote a letter last night
and I tried to explain.
Here, they say life is reckless and free
and I guess that I agree
It was hard to say
I found a way
but oh, no...

[Chorus:]
I can't write home about you
I can't write home about you
folks back home,
they got a four-letter word about it
I heard about you


Bitch girls bring their money downtown
to hear those cat-house blues
Thin men with a dollar three-eighty
with nothing to lose
Tonight, I'll find myself in this all
then I'll know that I belong
My whole world is here
I'll make it clear?
but oh, no...

[Chorus repeat]

Gin and roses hold on,
we'll spiral down
soul dancing at the cafe
bottom of the underground

[solo]

Tonight, I'll find myself in this all
then I'll know that I belong
My whole world is here
I'll make it clear
but oh, no...

[Chorus repeat twice]

Talkin' About My Home


I was born and raised and lived and loved and died
Today
But when I saw the lights my work was here
Hooray
It took me by surprise
It was right before my eyes

[Chorus:]
Talkin' 'bout my home
The city in the sky
Talkin' 'bout my home
The only home I ever known

Well you're halfway through the gate where you will [live]
Inside
Well I knew a dude who said it ain't no trip
He lied
Well I saw his face, oh god
When we crossed the promenade

[Chorus]

Well now I've got to catch that wunderbar
Express
So I'll just say good evening to you all
God bless
Just put me on that train
To that great celestial plane

[Chorus]
