Foghat - Slow Ride (Full Version)





"Slow Ride" is a song by the British rock band Foghat. It was the lead single from their fifth studio album, Fool for the City (1975), released on Bearsville Records.


There are several versions of this song on the market. The original LP version from Fool for the City lasts 8 minutes and 14 seconds. The single version, found in several compilations, was truncated to 3:56 with a fade-out ending.


According to drummer Roger Earl, the song was created during a jam session with then new bassist Nick Jameson:


"Nick had a cassette player and he would record whatever we played there. As I recall it, the whole song was written— the middle part and the bass part and the ending were all Nick's ideas. Basically, Nick wrote the song, but we just jammed on it, and Nick cut the stuff up so it made sense as far as the song goes. And then Dave [Peverett, the band's then guitarist and vocalist] said, 'I've got some words.' That's how that came about (laughs)"



Lyrics



Slow ride, take it easy - Slow ride, take it easy,

Slow ride, take it easy - Slow ride, take it easy.


I'm in the mood, the rhythm is right,

Move to the music, we can roll all night.

Oooh, oooh, slow ride - oooh, oooh ...


Slow ride, take it easy - Slow ride, take it easy

Slow down, go down, got to get your lovin' one more time

Hold me, roll me, slow ridin' woman you're so fine


Woo


I'm in the mood, the rhythm is right,

Move to the music yea, we can roll all night, yea.

Oooh, oooh ...


Slow ride, take it easy - Slow ride, take it easy

Slow down, go down, got to get your lovin' one more time

Hold me, roll me, slow ridin' woman you're so fine


(Slow ride, easy, slow ride, sleazy - Slow ride, easy, slow ride, sleazy)


Slow down, go down, got to get your lovin' one more time

Hold me, roll me, slow ridin' woman you're so fine


(Slow ride, take it easy - slow ride, take it easy)

(Slow down, go down - Slow down, go down)


Oh come on baby, take a slow ride with me,

Come on baby, take a slow ride.

Oh feels good, mmmm, feels so good, I like it yea,

I feel good, oh I feel alright!


You know the rhythm is right - You know the rhythm is right -

We gotta rock all night - We gotta rock all night -

You know the rhythm is right, yeah, we gotta rock all night,

You know the rhythm is right, we gotta rock all night.

Whoa, c'mon now

Woo, Yea, Woo, Woa!


Elevate me mama - Elevate me mama - Elevate me mama - Elevate me mama.

Oww!

Woo!


Slow ride! Yea!
