about

The Continuing Saga of Tommy Wells: A lottta folks around Medicine Park, OK know about Tommy and Porky's Pizza Paradise musical events. Tommy has moved on in his journey and there are reports he is in New Orleans. (Tommy if you read this drop me a line.) This is a mostly fictional account of how I hope Tommy is doing in the Big Easy. I can see where he might really thrive in that ambiance. A lot of folks miss him around here and are glad to have known him. He was the Mama Cass of Medicine Park - bringing musicians together and giving them a place to congregate, socialize, perform and become friends. Good Luck wherever you are man!

lyrics

Mr. Big Easy: The continuing saga of Tommy Wells

Tommy left Oklahoma
Tryin to make it to Ohio
Wound up in Louisiana
Hangin out down on the bayou
It was time to leave medicine park behind
Start all over with a new dream
Find a woman and a new life
in the city of New Orleans

Now he's Mr. big easy
Mr. big easy
Mr. big easy
New Orleans is home sweet home
He is Mr. big easy
Mr. big easy
Mr. big easy
Tommy got it goin on
Goin on
Goin in
Goin on ya

Tommy plays a real mean fiddle
Gonna play a little zydeco
Find a woman who sings like an angel
Make a little music don't you know
always been a bit of a rollin stone
Never afraid to wander
Keep on lookin for a place called home
maybe this time he's found her

Chorus

Tommy left Oklahoma
Tryin to make it to Ohio
Wound up in Louisiana
Hangin out down on the bayou
Now he feel like the king of the Mardi Gras
Workin at the 7-11
Walkin down the street with a big cigar
He's found a little piece of heaven
