From the recording Cookin' In The Kitchen
The Ben in this song is the railroad worker in "Steel Goin' Down" and the verse is something that he actually said.
We recorded this with no over dubs; just like sitting around in a jam session.
Me and the old cook cookin' in the kitchen, me and the old cook cookin' in the kitchen; She cooked the rice and I cooked the chicken; me and the old cook cookin' in the kitchen---
Ben, you goin' to the meetin' tonight? No, I ain't goin' no meetin' tonight; The Lord done come and save my soul, and I'll be there when they call the roll---
