Richard Thompson - 1952 Vincent Black Lightning..​

Thanks, Bob Lee​


not the usual style music I listen to, but heard it years ago & enjoyed it, a lot.
Interesting lyrics, thought it's hard to understand them in the song: :

Oh, says Red Molly to James "That's a fine motorbike.
A girl could feel special on any such like"
Says James to Red Molly "My hat's off to you
It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952.
And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems
Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour scheme"
And he pulled her on behind
And down to Boxhill, they did ride

Oh, says James to Red Molly "Here's a ring for your right hand
But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man.
For I've fought with the law since I was seventeen,
I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine.
Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22
And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you.
And if fate should break my stride
Then I'll give you my Vincent to ride"

"Come down, come down, Red Molly" called Sergeant McRae
"For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery.
Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside.
Oh come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside"

When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left
He was running out of road, he was running out of breath
But he smiled to see her cry
He said "I'll give you my Vincent to ride"

Says James "In my opinion, there's nothing in this world
Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl.
Now Nortons and Indians and Greeves won't do,
Ahh, they don't have a soul like a Vincent 52"

Oh he reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys
Said "I've got no further use for these.
I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome,
Swooping down from heaven to carry me home"
And he gave her one last kiss and died
And he gave her his Vincent to ride.

I miss my Vincent Black Shadow.

I once believed if I quit riding, I would surely Die.

What a beautiful bike. I remember Triumphs, BSA's and Nortons along with the Japanese bikes growing up. The English bikes had a unique sound.

TODAY - It is all about the SUPREMES!
(As far as Diana Ross & the Supremes go . . . this might not be their greatest, BUT IT IS JUST TOO APPROPRIATE!)
June 23, 2022 - THE SUPREMES RULE! . . . And my Forever Came Today!
I've been waiting since 1981, and I could do the math, BUT WHY, In a lifetime, IT IS FOREVER!
So today, I RAISE A TOAST TO THE SUPREMES!
For today's ruling, and all the implications that today's precedent should set for victory in future legal battles!
YES - FOREVER CAME TODAY
GOD BLESS JUSTICE CLARENCE THOMAS!

I grew up listening to the Supremes, and to Motown and have always loved it. I think they surfaced around 1964, that would have made 11 yrs old. That kind of music transcends the ages. Thank you, and i agree. God Bless Justice Clarence Thomas! Please Father keep special watch over Justice Thomas, and all the members of the SC that voted for the basic human rights of folks who have been downtrodden by the corrupt, and filthy so called government, of this wonderful country. We bless Your Holy name, and give you all the praise. Amen.
