Il testo della Down the Dustpipe

Heading down the back turnpike, signposts are pointing west
Fell into the lonely dustpipe, hope my pick-up can stand the test
But I'm doing all right now
Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

Rolling down the dustpipe now, got a ten dollar bill in my jeans
Because there ain't no room for a kosher cowboy in a town like New Orleans
But I'm doing all right now
Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

Guess I didn't make it in the city, but that's just the way that it goes
'Cos there's a lotta lunatics, crazy ghostmen, baby, don't like the shape of my nose
But I'm doing all right now
Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

Rolling down the dustpipe now, got a ten dollar bill in my jeans
Because there ain't no room for a kosher cowboy in a town like New Orleans
But I'm doing all right now
Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

Rolling down the dustpipe now, got a ten dollar bill in my jeans
Because there ain't no room for a kosher cowboy in a town like New Orleans
But I'm doing all right now..

'Down the Dustpipe' is a song written by Australian singer-songwriter Carl Groszmann. He was a client of Valley Music, who were affiliated to Status Quo’s management in their early days. The group recorded it, and in Francis Rossi’s words, “it was the first record to feature our soon-to-be trademark boogie shuffle”. It became one of the most popular numbers in their live set. Released as a single in March 1970, it took the media by surprise as it was so different in sound from their previous work. Radio 1 presenter Tony Blackburn dismissed it on air the first time he played it with the comment, “Down the dustbin for this one.” The harmonica was played by Bob Young, a former member of pop group The Attack, best known for a cover version of “Hi Ho Silver Lining” in 1967 which lost out to a more successful recording by Jeff Beck. Young had recently joined Status Quo as their roadie, but became an unofficial member, playing harmonica on several subsequent recordings and co-writing many of their singles and album tracks.

Although it was initially ignored by Radio 1, it made the charts largely through the group’s increasing popularity as a live band, and reached number 12 in the UK charts in July. Its slow progress gave it a 17-week stay in the Top 50, something never achieved by any of their subsequent, more well-known singles.

It remained unavailable on Status Quo's LPs until the release of the compilation 'The Best of Status Quo' in 1973, and has appeared on several compilations since then. The band re-recorded it on their 2003 album 'Riffs', the new version being very similar to the original but about 20 seconds longer.
