I tell you - I can't wait for that new album - there's going to be so many good ones on it! this one is about "barbecue", and man do I ever love me some "barbecue".

MARY'S KITCHEN

Can't blame a thief for stealin' wallets
That's just what they do
Can't blame Mary for stealin' hearts
When you taste her barbecue
She got a brisket nice and tender
Best you'll ever try
Way she cooks so nice and slow
Will leave you satisfied
Kansas City to Memphis town
Arkansas on down
Come on into Mary's Kitchen
If you want your sausage ground

She got a sign on her front porch saying
"Hot Stuff For Sale"
In a little three-room shotgun
In the alley behind the jail
Sweet and Sour, Thick or Thin,
Tangy, Hot or Mild
Some like it hot, some like it cold,
Some like it any way it's sold
Kansas City to Memphis town
Arkansas on down
Come on into Mary's Kitchen
If you want your sausage ground

Pokin' at her charcoal grill
Puttin' sauce on her famous ribs
When it comes to what you like
The whole neighborhood's got dibs
One taste and you'll be hooked
Like nothing else you've know
Find yourself on her kitchen floor
Hopin' she throws you a bone
Kansas City to Memphis town
Arkansas on down
Come on into Mary's Kitchen
If you want your sausage ground

**was originally "head" on into Mary's Kitchen -- both fit the innuendo quite nicely... hehe

The whole neighborhood's got dibs(?) (yup)
One taste and you'll be hooked
Like nothing else you've know
Find yourself on the kitchen floor
On a stained old uniform(?) something something you was born?

Arkansas on down
Come on into Mary's Kitchen

Yes. Gill sings this song on the new cd. It's the only song he wrote and sang on the CD. This song is actually very good.

I found an advanced copy at a used CD store in Atlanta a few weeks ago. Been playing it ever since!!

I played this song for my ailing Daddy and he just cracked up. "Ya ain't never gonna hear that song on the radio darlin'! That's 'bout a whorehouse!" (Yes I had already figured that out...but I played along anyway) My Dad is pretty ornery so he LOVED it! We played it over and over on a drive to a family reunion.
