    My Favorite Deja Vu shows what Raggedy Edge can be as a quartet, with Dutch Workman filling in on drums and percussion and John Huston stepping in with bass and keyboards. These two experienced sidemen from Utah bring unplumbed levels of musicianship to the songs of Lynn and Bob, not only a sweet sensation for them, but for listeners as well. The CD starts with another self-analysis by Bob about life from the beginning to the day he met Lynn and looking on into the future of days that promise to be more favorite days to look back on. A little Hawaii rock slides into hardcore country that segues into the irony of Good Woman Blues. Traveling Song showcases Raggedy Edge's propensity to write in the American Standards style, followed by the gentle ode to youth Playground Swings. It's back to the blues and the rocking Push and Pull of Time's acoustic power lead as only Bob can do it to bring this strongest set yet to a close.

about

Driving Blind is a song Lynn has had for some time, waiting for the proper instrumentation, inspiration, and motivation. It really shows off a part of her voice that doesn't get used a whole lot.

lyrics

Driving Blind
(Perdzock)
Caught at the crossroads, I look left and right
No other traffic, no sign in sight
Moon behind thick clouds, impossible to find
I wanna take the right road but I’m drivin’ blind
I wanna take the right road, but I’m drivin’ blind

Broke my glasses; headlights burned out
No one around to hear my shout
Don’t know which way to go, I’m in a bind
I wanna take the right road but I’m drivin’ blind
I wanna take the right road, but I’m drivin’ blind

The pavement’s slick; no lines on the road
Brakes don’t work; I got a heavy load
Pages of my atlas are torn out
The needle of my compass spins around, around, around
It just spins around

Early next morning, sun’s in my eyes
I turn west, improvise
Do the first thing that springs to mind
I wanna take the right road but I’m drivin’ blind
I wanna take the right road, but I’m drivin’ blind Drivin’ blind…
