#SLS for 11/17/19 ~ “I Thank You”

Jim gives us the prompts did/didn’t/do/does/doesn’t.

This Texas girl automatically thinks of the ZZ Top cover of “I Thank You”. ZZ Top was a favorite for a brief time. I remember once when my brother won their album Rio Grande Mud by being the 2nd caller with the right answer to a trivia question. The first caller actually got concert tickets.

My brother is the luckiest unlucky guy I know meaning he’s been through some tough times in his life. Still he almost always won any time he’d enter a contest or raffle even if not first place. I lost count of how many items he won off the radio 📻. He had a system and always got through. When I’d try, I’d get a busy signal. Every.Single.Time! 😂

“I Thank You” was written by Songwriters: David Porter / Isaac Hayes. ZZ Top covered it on their 1979 album: Degüello. This version of the song is the only one I ever knew. Super excited when that happens. Makes me happy when musicians appreciate each other. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Reminds me of the CMAs and the cross over blending of genres.

Here you go … lyrics within.

Here’s another example. I think it actually like it better. That keyboard 🎹. Those horns 🎷.

  1. I’m only familiar with both of these groups because of my late husband. They both favorites of his and I’m pretty sure I heard “Sharp Dressed Man” like a gazillion times! 😄

    Thanks for a great share. 😊👍

  2. Jill I want to thank you for adding this song today. When I was young, I only won one thing. I came in tied for second in a speed skating race and after the flip of the coin, I got the third place medal. Recently I won $250 in a story writing contest and that felt good.

  3. Love this song. My first dog, a stray shepherd I named Sundance, saved my life at a difficult time in my 20s. I used to sing this song to him. He passed in 1993 at age 15 and I still miss him. King Sunny!
