Over the Hill
by John Hiatt
#BirthdayJam

Happy 67th birthday to the extremely gifted singer-songwriter and musician John Hiatt! He was the first artist I jammed on This Is My Jam, and this is the 19th time I have jammed one of his songs on GJB, so you might guess that he is one of my favorites. In 2008 the Americana Music Association bestowed on John the Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting.

"Over the Hill," from his latest album "The Eclipse Sessions," finds Mr. Hiatt channeling J.J. Cale. The track features John on guitar and vocals, Patrick O’Hearn on bass, Kevin McKendree on keyboards, longtime band mate Kenneth Blevins on drums, and Yates McKendree on lead guitar.

"I'm over the hill, under the bridge
Still a few peaks and down the hills, I ain't seen
You talk about love, I talk about love
I don't know any better than to dream

I know your father's house, it has many rooms
I see the young men sweeping up with their brooms

But if you want me
I'm over the hill
Yeah if you want me
I'm over the hill

I'm longing a tooth, and what can I say
I've taken huge bites of life and I ate the bones
The gristle and mellow feeds my soul
Gives me the strength to forgive all the sticks and stones

And what you see in me you think I see too
I didn't get here telling stories for you

But if you want me
I'm over the hill
Yeah if you want me baby
I'm over the hill

I hear a distant cry
A tear forms in your eye
For the way things might have been
We can't live that again
No time to fill the cup
No time to screw it up
We'll have to place our bets
On a door with no regrets

Well time won't tell, heaven or hell
Time just pisses his secrets down the street
You talk about love, I talk about love
Sometimes I'll even think we know what we mean

No band of angels bringing peace to the streets
We wear the garments and we shuffle our feet

But if you want me baby
I'm over the hill, yeah
But if you want me baby
I'm over the hill

Oh, I'm over the hill baby
I'm over the hill baby
I'm over the hill baby"

Enjoy!
