I wonder if Taylor Hicks ever listened to Thin Lizzy? Classified as a metal band the songs they wrote carried more than a handful of soul. This tune would work well redone, addition of some harmonica, add to the vibe.
"Don't Believe a Word"
Don't believe me if I tell you
Not a word of this is true
I could imagine Taylor performing this tune as well. Bob Seger wrote it but Phil and Thin Lizzy made it better.
In the event you have no idea who Phil Lynott was:
Gorgeous man, intelligent and a bloody good song writer. Gra Go Deo Lynott.
