Chip Merlin’s “pass along post” offers A Thoroughly Enjoyable and Inexpensive Way to Help Those Injured by the Gulf Oil Spill
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lenny Kravitz, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, and Tim Robbins recorded a version of The New Orleans Mardi Gras classic, It Ain’t My Fault, by Joseph Smokey Johnson and Wardell Joseph Quezergue, updating some of the lyrics for the Gulf Aid concert:
Oil and water don’t mix,
Petroleum don’t go with no fish,
Awww, it ain’t my fault
BP big pimpin’,
Big pile of bad presses,
Billionaire point pressure,
Awww, it ain’t my fault….
The track is available on iTunes for less than a dollar, and all the proceeds will benefit fishermen and those who work in seafood restaurants, whose lives and work have been affected indefinitely by the oil spill.
