You don't know who Fats Domino is? He's a 1950's rock/blues singer. He sang the song Blueberry Hill, among many others.

There are two fats I heard of in the US. One is Fats Domino, the other is Minnesota Fats (pro pool player, deceased).

Funny names :)

This is why he's a reverred favorite son. It's classic New Orleans blues. Black blue/jazz musicians nicknamed New Orleans, "The Big Easy." Like NYC--"The Big Apple"

It's time I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm going to need two pair of shoes
When I get through walkin' to you
When I get back to New Orleans

I've got my suitcase in my hand
Now, ain't that a shame
I'm leavin' here today
Yes, I'm goin' back home to stay
Yes, I'm walkin' to New Orleans

You used to be my honey
Till you spent all my money
No use for you to cry
I'll see you bye and bye
Cause I'm walkin' to New Orleans

I've got no time for talkin'
I've got to keep on walkin'
New Orleans is my home
That's the reason why I'm goin'
Yes, I'm walkin' to New Orleans
FADE:
I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm walkin' to New Orleans

I don't refer to him as young, I call him "Kid".

No, not a baby goat, just someone who is on his way up and has no bounds because of his abilities and his wit.

As in Ringo Kid, Outlaw Kid, Rawhide Kid, Kid from Dodge City … comic book heros that I grew up with as I was growing up.

Ah..to be young..once again.

Sam,

Your homework for tonight is to use the (legal or illegal) music downloading service of your choice and listen to Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame" and "Blueberry Hill" for a start.

Your musical education has some deficiences that MUST be corrected. :-P

Sam,

Just a note...make sure you download the original version of "Ain't That a Shame". There seem to be some crappy later versions out there.

My Mom and Dad loved him. You are too young to have suffered through what I had t as a child having to listen to Elvis, Fats and early Beatles.;)
