K is for KICK IT IN SECOND WIND
Please note that the videos embedded with the songs were posted by some great Parrotheads on YouTube and not my creation.
Oddly there are very few "K" songs in Jimmy's repertoire. "Kick it In Second Wind" (1976) is from the Havana Daydreamin' CD.
I only found one video for this song and oddly enough the lyrics are somewhat changed on this version. The lyrics that I am familiar with use the refrain "losing anymore hope of scoring any more coke, and we still have to do another show". If you look at the printed lyrics online this is also what you get. Perhaps there was this drug free version recorded for some reason that I am not aware of. (seems odd for Jimmy though). I couldn't find any history on it.
It's not his best or worst song, just telling the story of performing late nite at the clubs and all the things that go wrong, "somebody locked in the bathroom" , "bassman takes a great fall". It's fun enough and it is a "K" so on with the challenge.
I guess all of us "older" fans are getting to our "Second Wind" about now!!!
