Red Flags by Allen Ross


A quick transcription of Red Flags by Allen Ross. I forgot how much I liked his songs. For better or worse, it’s Allen’s fault that I became a parrothead.

This is the title song of Allen’s most recent CD, available for preview and purchase at www.allenrossmusic.net.

Red Flags by Allen Ross

A friend of mine asked my advice on this girl he thinks is hot.
She’s got him acting crazy, wants to tie the knot.
He says she got a great big pair of..pink fuzzy dice
On her saturn’s rearview mirror and her rear view sure looks nice.

I said hold on Amigo..some things you just don’t do.

Chorus:
Don’t drink to much Red Stripe,
Don’t overamp on Red Bull
Don’t piss of a Redhead, unless you want a mouthful.
Don’t be drinking Red Wine when the menu calls for fish.
Always look for Red Flags..before you’re deep in shit.

I had a girl named Violet, she made me sing the blues.
Spening so much green, ’till my gold card was refused.
Her true colors shown when she went down…town to tell my wife.
Now my white lies turned to black eyes, i see red all the time.

Quite frankly Scarlet…my advise to you

Chorus:
Don’t drink to much Red Stripe,
Don’t overamp on Red Bull
Don’t piss of a Redhead, unless you want a mouthful.
Don’t be drinking Red Wine when the menu calls for fish.
Always look for Red Flags..before you’re deep in shit.

Here’s a little riddle…In the middle…Of the song

What could taste as sweet as a red delicious?
Then with just one bite can turn so vicious?
What can set you free? Make you slave forever?
Mark ruby red on your cheek? Oh how clever….

A woman’s lips can solve the riddle.
Enjoy that kiss boys, but just remember…

Chorus:
Don’t drink to much Red Stripe (Unless your in Jamaica)
Don’t try to cross the Red Sea (Unless Moses makes ya)
Don’t be driving through Red Lights, overamped on Red Bull.
And don’t piss of a Redhead, unless you want a mouthful.
Don’t be drinking Red Wine anytime at Red Lobster

Always look for Red Flags..before you’re deep in shit.

History Minute: Blizzard of ’88

1888 : Great Blizzard of ’88 hits East Coast

On this day in 1888, one of the worst blizzards in American history strikes the Northeast, killing more than 400 people and dumping as much as 55 inches of snow in some areas. New York City ground to a near halt in the face of massive snow drifts and powerful winds from the storm. At the time, approximately one in every four Americans lived in the area between Washington D.C. and Maine, the area affected by the Great Blizzard of 1888.

On March 10, temperatures in the Northeast hovered in the mid-50s. But on March 11, cold Arctic air from Canada collided with Gulf air from the south and temperatures plunged. Rain turned to snow and winds reached hurricane-strength levels. By midnight on March 11, gusts were recorded at 85 miles per hour in New York City. Along with heavy snow, there was a complete whiteout in the city when the residents awoke the next morning.

Despite drifts that reached the second story of some buildings, many city residents trudged out to New York’s elevated trains to go to work, only to find many of them blocked by snow drifts and unable to move. Up to 15,000 people were stranded on the elevated trains; in many areas, enterprising people with ladders offered to rescue the passengers for a small fee. In addition to the trains, telegraph lines, water mains and gas lines were also located above ground. Each was no match for the powerful blizzard, freezing and then becoming inaccessible to repair crews. Simply walking the streets was perilous. In fact, only 30 people out of 1,000 were able to make it to the New York Stock Exchange for work; Wall Street was forced to close for three straight days. There were also several instances of people collapsing in snow drifts and dying, including Senator Roscoe Conkling, New York’s Republican Party leader.

Many New Yorkers camped out in hotel lobbies waiting for the worst of the blizzard to pass. Mark Twain was in New York at the time and was stranded at his hotel for several days. P.T. Barnum entertained some of the stranded at Madison Square Garden. The East River, running between Manhattan and Queens, froze over, an extremely rare occurrence. This inspired some brave souls to cross the river on foot, which proved a terrible mistake when the tides changed and broke up the ice, stranding the adventurers on ice floes. Overall, about 200 people were killed by the blizzard in New York City alone.

But New York was not the only area to suffer. Along the Atlantic coast, hundreds of boats were sunk in the high winds and heavy waves. The snowfall totals north of New York City were historic: Keene, New Hampshire, received 36 inches; New Haven, Connecticut, got 45 inches; and Troy, New York, was hit by 55 inches of snow over 3 days. In addition, thousands of wild and farm animals froze to death in the blizzard.

In the wake of the storm, officials realized the dangers of above-ground telegraph, water and gas lines and moved them below ground. In New York City, a similar determination was made about the trains, and within 10 years, construction began on an underground subway system that is still in use today.
