DUKE BAXTER - Everybody Knows Matilda

Year: 1969

VMC 740 Everybody Knows Matilda | I Ain't No School Boy 69 VG / VG+ $5.00

I found this on Google. I would say that this is probably your song. This information needs to be confirmed.

Another artist (I'm guessing a cover version)

PETARDS - EVERYBODY KNOWS MATILDA

http://www.gemm.com/c/search.pl?currency=US&field=ARTIST+OR+TITLE&wild=Everybody+Knows+Matilda+&Go%21.x=21&Go%21.y=8

I left a note on the other board for Vic. I want to make sure I have the correct artist and title.

Yup that's the song. I have it both by Duke Baxter and the Petards. They both sound similar.
Here are the lyrics:

Everybody Knows Matilda - Duke Baxter (1969)

I went down to 42nd Street
thought I'd get a bite to eat
I saw a girl that I'd like to meet
you know, she sure looked good
told me that her heart was broken
asked me what it was I was smokin'
all she had was an old bus token
yes I would

she cried a tear
and said she was alone
would I be so good
to accompany her home
if I could, ya

but everybody knows Matilda
everybody knows Matilda
ain't no life for a young girl
all alone in a great big world
Matilda

took me to a shack on the edge of town
all the shades were fully drawn
nobody, not a soul around
she smiled at me
fixed me drinks, fixed my head
drank it down, made me feel like lead
when I asked where was the bed
she said "I'd see"

she pulled me close
now what was I to do
my head was spinnin
she said take off your shoes
and I agreed, ya

but everybody knows Matilda
everybody knows Matilda
ain't no life for a young girl
all alone in a great big world
Matilda

heard a heavy knockin upon the door
skid so bad, fell on the floor
heard a voice and it sound so..
"LET ME IN!"
matilda said her boyfriend had a gun
sorry baby but you have to run
but I was gone before she was done..

flew through the window
as the door came tumblin down
didn't even say goodbye
I was homeward bound
you just can't win, no

now everybody knows Matilda
everybody knows Matilda
ain't no life for a young girl
all alone in a great big world
Matilda

Hi Tony, I did send it to you but I guess you didn't get the Dropload notification or maybe Dropload was having problems at the time. Anyways, I'll send it again. Check your email for a notificatiion from Dropload.com and do let me know if you get it or not.
Thanks!

Vic, I found the message that you can send an mp3 of Matilda by Duke Baxter. I had a 45 of it years ago but don't have it now. Could you please send the mp3 of this song to me? I would appreciate it. Let me know if I can send any songs to you.
