Buckwheat Zydeco – I’m On The Wonder

Blues

I’m on the wonder
If you ever think of me
I’m on the wonder
If you ever think of me
Lord know, I love you
But I’m linvin’ in misery
Tell me why
Why you treat me just the way you do
Tell me why, tell me why
Why you treat me, the way you do
You know girl, you make me love
Then you turned around
And you treat me
Just like a fool

I’m on the wonder
If you ever think of me
I’m on the wonder
If you ever think of me
Little girl you know I love you
But I’m linvin’ in misery

American musical legend Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural Jr. (November 14, 1947 – September 24, 2016) —along with his band, Buckwheat Zydeco—was the preeminent ambassador of Louisiana zydeco music. The New York Times said, “Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural leads one of the best bands in America…a down-home and high-powered celebration, meaty and muscular with a fine-tuned sense of dynamics…propulsive rhythms, incendiary performances.”
Over the course of his five-decade career, Dural had over 25 albums to his credit, five Grammy Award nominations and one Grammy victory. He and his band performed non-stop all over the world, playing with everyone from Eric Clapton and U2 to Robert Plant and The Boston Pops. The band played at the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympics and entertained President Clinton twice, celebrating both of his inaugurations. They appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman, CNN, The Today Show, MTV, NBC News, CBS Morning News and many other programs. They also played the final episode of The Late Show With Jimmy Fallon.
