I think I got all the words to Turn Me Over correct. This may be one the best songs ever written and recorded by Jim Quick & Coastline.  It is definitely near the top of my list of favorites by Jim Quick.  Do you sing along with Jim? Do you know anyone mentioned in this song?

“Turn Me Over”

written by James Quick, Jr.
performed by Jim Quick & Coastline
Released 2007 by Landslide Records


Me and Jenny would sneak out back after Mom and Dad fell fast asleep
Tugging on Lucky Strikes, we hid in the knoll of an old oak tree
Mrs. King live next door and she flashed her lights telling us to go back home.
Go on home y’all
She made me sweet tea for cutting the grass since her old man passed on.

I don’t know what the future holds but I know where I’ve been.
If I could start all over, I’d do the same thing again
Turn me over like an hourglass.
Take me from today and pour me in the past
Turn me over Sands move too fast
Turn me over like an hourglass

Charlie turned 16, 3 months before me.
Had an old Ford Galaxy with a rag top.
With a suitcase full of songs, we’d cruise all night long
Kept the bottle under the seat in case we got stopped

Me and Jay would stay out late tipped the hands of Fate, chugging mad dog chasing it with a beer
Christy stole my heart, never thought that we would part.
She was gone after our senior year.

I don’t know what the future holds but I know where I’ve been
If I can start all over, I’d do the same thing again
turn me over like an hourglass
Take me from today and pour me in the past
Turn me over Sands Move too fast
Turn me over like an hourglass

Andy Boy, He could roll a leg.
Where he got the stuff I don’t know.
All we did was laugh talk about his ol folks back in Fresno
Richie loved the ladies.
He danced with a million, never took one home.
Too busy cutting a rug. He just settled for a hug and a night alone. You Go Boy.

I don’t know what the future holds but I know where I’ve been
If I could start all over I do the same thing again
Turn me over like an hourglass
Take me from today and pour me in the past
Turn me over Sands move too fast
Turn me over like an hourglass

Turn me over like an hourglass
Take me from today and pour me in the past
Turn me over Sands move too fast
Turn me over like an hourglass
Turn me over
Turn me over
Turn me over
I wanna go back, Baby
Turn Me Over
