About Lido Shuffle

"Lido Shuffle" is a song written by Boz Scaggs and David Paich and introduced on the 1976 Boz Scaggs album, Silk Degrees. It was subsequently released as a single in 1977. Scaggs recalled: "'Lido Shuffle"' was a song that I'd been banging around. I...took the idea of the shuffle [from] a song that Fats Domino did called 'The Fat Man' that had a kind of driving shuffle beat that I used to play on the piano, and I just started kind of singing along with it. Then I showed it to Paich and he helped me fill it out. It ended up being 'Lido Shuffle'."Members of the backup band on "Lido Shuffle" include David Paich, Jeff Porcaro and David Hungate who later formed Toto. Released as the album's fourth single, "Lido Shuffle" reached number 11 in the US and 13 on the UK Singles Chart. In Australia the track spent three weeks at number 2 as a double A-side hit with "What Can I Say".

Lido missed the boat that day he left the shack
But that was all he missed
And he ain't comin' back

At a tombstone bar, in a juke joint car he made a stop
Just long enough to grab a handle off the top

Next stop Chi town, Lido put the money down, let 'em roll
He said one more job ought to get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it
One for the road

Lido
Whoah oh oh oh
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's waitin' for the go, Lido
Whoah oh oh oh oh oh
He said one more job ought to get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it
One more for the road

Lido will be runnin', havin' great big funnin' till he got the note
Sayin' toe the line or blow it and that was all she wrote

He'll be makin' like a bee line, headin' for the border line, goin' for broke
Sayin' one more hit ought to do it
This joint ain't nothin' to it
One more for the road

Lido
Whoah oh oh oh
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's waitin' for the go, Lido
Whoah oh oh oh oh oh
One more job ought to get it
One last shot then we quit it
One more for the road

Lido
Woah oh oh oh
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's waitin' for the go, Lido
Woah oh oh oh oh oh
One more job ought to get it
