Johnny Hodges

John Keith "Johnny" Hodges (July 25, 1906 – May 11, 1970) was an American alto saxophonist, best known for his solo work with Duke Ellington's big band. He played lead alto in the saxophone section for many years, except the period between 1932–1946 when Otto Hardwick generally played first chair. Hodges was also featured on soprano saxophone, but refused to play soprano after 1946, when he was given the lead chair. He is considered one of the definitive alto saxophones players of the Big Band Era (alongside Benny Carter). more »

Sometimes I feel so weary
Traveling through life all alone
Sometimes I feel so weary
Traveling through life all alone

It's a long, long journey
And I can't make it on my own

There's seven million people
Living right here in this town
There's seven million people
Living right here in this town

I don't need but one person
So, baby, why won't you, please, stay around?

When the sun turns blue
And the moon shines bright all day
When the sun turns blue
And the moon shines bright all day

That's the day, sweet mama
I'll let you run away

When the rivers stop flowing
And the trees lay down and die
I said, when the rivers stop flowing
And the trees lay down and die

When the stars stop shining
Then I'll say my love's goodbye

Now if I've been misbehaving
I promise you I'll stop
But if you quit me, mama
I swear I'll blow my top

It's a long, long journey
But I'll make it before I'm blue
This world can't throw me
Mama, if I still have you
