Songs That I Love #79 Tommy Bolin - Wild Dogs



Tommy Bolin joined Deep purple after Ritchie Blackmore left to start the band Rainbow. Unless you are a huge fan of the band ( I don't class myself as one) its was hard to keep up with the changes but Tommy Bolin (and this track) had a profound on me.

I didn't find out until later that this track was a Tommy Bolin solo track that he played whilst playing with Tommy Bolin. He was a mess with drugs apparently and misses his intro but at the time (30+ years ago) this tack blew me away.

I now have the original version which is below but thought I'd had to post the one that introduced me to  Tommy Bolin.

This baggage handcuffed to my wrists
I drag it everywhere I go
Sometimes I fight you with my fists
But if I knew which way was home
That's where I'd go, if I knew which way was home


Before the karma cut me free
I'm sick of my own company
Sometimes I miss the boat
Most times I miss my home
Thats where I'd go, if I knew which way was home


Run down ghost trail, no chance for love
No sign of life, just wild dogs howlin' in the night

Oh, that's what I like

Before the karma cut me loose
Would bring my whiskey and my water
Sometimes I get them blues
Though I know I shouldn't oughta
Thats where I'd go, if I knew which way was home


Run down ghost trail, no chance for love
No sign of life, just wild dogs howlin' in the night


Run down ghost trail, no chance for love
No sign of life, just wild dogs howlin' in the night


Run down ghost trail, no chance for love
No sign of life, just wild dogs howlin' in the night


Hear 'em howl.
