Song Description

This comes from the "Live" CD, "Black & White" recorded back on 9/11/71 in Kansas City, MO at Cowtown Ballroom. It is the only surviving recording of Chet playing performing "live" The album showcases his varied songwriting, vocals, guitar work, piano playing and harmonica performances. It is a raw, gritty analog recording with all kinds of peaks and valleys, but the music and lyrics always shine through. Enjoy!

Story Behind the Song

This song sings about spies and spying, which, oddly enough, has become a BIG issue these days....aka....our privacy. Then, again, the song tells the tale of how people gleaned secret info over the centuries.

Lanterns and lamps
Light up the opposing camps
Night light hides the under spies
Who cross the lines with ears and eyes
Watch the tricky turncoats of
Juda, Judas spy
Juda, Judas spy
That shiny badge
Puts you on the edge
Of honesty and disguise

Look out for snake eyes
They may be watching you
Estimating your next move
And weighing what you do
The stage is set
The fox, he preys the cracking ice
It's a game of loaded dice
The stage is set to beget
Juda, Judas spy
Juda, Judas spy
That shiny badge
Puts you on the edge
Of honesty and disguise
