Radio XV, side A, track 4: “I’m Not Your Man” by Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers

Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers I'm Not Your ManOh, Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers, if there was ever a band whose music perfectly matched the name of your band, you were it.  You guys sang good ol’ rock and roll.  You sounded beat up and greasy and cool, and there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that you guys would rumble with anyone at a moment’s notice.  It would be a few years before I really appreciated how cool you guys really were, though, Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers.  It wasn’t until 1991 when I ordered the Coca-Cola New Music Sampler, Volume 1 cassette and saw you guys on the same tape as some other obscure bands like Pearl Jam and Motorhead and Europe.  Maybe your music didn’t stick in our collective pop consciousness as firmly as the other guys on that particular tape, Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers, but as a fan of all of those other acts, I can confidently say that you’re just as awesome.

“I’m Not Your Man”

Seven days a week with you is more than I can handle

Seven nights’a love and dirty laundry on yer floor

Baby, I can see this whole thing headin’ inta trouble

I’m out the door

I’m not’cher man

‘Cause yer lookin’ for a hero
Baby, it ain’t me

I’m not’cher man

I ain’t nothin’ to hold on to

Baby, I ain’t
Whatchoo need

It’s easy bein’ here but I got ground ta cover

There’s nothin’ you can do ta make me wanna stay

Though I’ve been here awhile don’t think that I’ve stopped movin’

I’m on my way

I’m not’cher man

‘Cause yer lookin’ for a hero
Baby, it ain’t me

I’m not’cher man

I ain’t nothin’ to hold on to

Baby, I ain’t
Whatchoo need

I might be a clown
But I can get down
On my guitar
So here ya are

<awesome Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers jam>

I’m not the one yer gonna take home to your daddy

I’m not the one ta sit around with makin’ plans (not’cher man)

I’m not the one yer gonna settle down and marry

I’m not’cher man

I’m not’cher man

‘Cause yer lookin’ for a hero
Baby, it ain’t me

I’m not’cher man

Not the one you wanna cry to
Baby, in your sleep

I’m not’cher man

‘Cause yer lookin’ for a hero

I’m not’cher man

I ain’t nothin’ to hold on to

There ain’t no tomorrow, baby, there’s just right now (I’m not’cher man)
You know you got to have some fun while you still know how (I’m not’cher man)
Do a monkey-chasin’ line up a coconut tree (I’m not’cher man)
A sweet little angel I ain’t never gonna be (no no no no no no)

(I’m not’cher man)

(I’m not’cher man)

(I’m not’cher man)

(No no no no no no)

(I’m not’cher man)

All the way

(I’m not’cher man)

Like I say

(I’m not’cher man)

Look here

(No no no no no no)
Woo!

(I’m not’cher man)

    This band and track is totally new to me, but I’m enjoying it! 🙂

    Come to think of it, I had a Coca-Cola sampler CD. Must have been early 90s. I still have it somewhere, a cool mix of random tracks! 🙂

  3. […] particular gem of a song:  if you heard this song, you’d never guess that you guys also sang this song.  And vice versa.  If you listened to this song, and this was the only song you could use as a […]
