"... Choppity chop goes the axe in the woods..."

this song is a variation of Tom Wait's "Get behind the Mule", sung in local slang. Here is the original text in English http://www.oldielyrics.com/lyrics/tom_waits/get_behind_the_mule.html

Cool thing about a great tune.  You don't have to understand a word of the lyrics in order to appreciate it.  Guitar and bass sound great!

thanks :-) Yes, the bass guy was cool. There's a video of Lemmy Kilmister explaining his plectron style, compared to the standard pluckers, really funny

nice! interesting looking bass the guy is playing, with a pick, too, unusual these days! (-:
