Lyrics: Baby wants to play
Got all her stuff on display
Tryin' to get back the innocence
She lost along the way
Hey hey that's good enough for me

She left a Christian family
In Bristol, Tennessee
Her mama prays to the good Lord
To treat her mercifully
Hey hey that's good enough for me

Good enough; good enough for me
Good enough; good enough for me
Good enough; good enough for me

She's forty-one in May
My cougar ran away
She didn't offer an explanation
There wasn't nothin' to say
Hey hey that's good enough for me

Good enough; good enough for me
Good enough; good enough for me
Good enough; good enough for me
About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
