There must be a million rock songs with a similar title - including one classic from Spinal Tap!! I don't think this is one of my better songs but I think it rocks out okay. I must get the 12 string out again and get myself out of Rolling Stones mode!!

STRAIGHT DOWN TO HELL
Words & Music by Chris Price ©2021



Spider Maya was a bar room belle
A cat suit she wear so well
A loaded pistol on each hip
Step outa line she blow you to bits

She sat down at my table
One look and I just fell
What she do to me I just can’t tell ya but
She take me straight down to hell

Loaded dice, fixed playing cards
Perfume, leather and Jaguars
A razor tongue that cuts like a knife
Cross Spider Maya..run for your life

She sat down at my table
One look and I just fell
What she do to me I just can’t tell ya but
She take me straight down to hell

Spider Mayer has the look
Never let you off the hook
Fille de joie feel no sin
She can’t hold anything in
Cranked up n full of spite
Cat spit n dog bite
Can’t stand it when we’re apart
Poison arrow straight through the heart.

Hola @ChrisPrice
Yes, you are right your song has the classic color it has to have... It has been a very nice listening, I liked very much lyrics, the story is very well described, this line is wonderful .

"She sat down at my table
One look and I just fell"

It was a very entertaining listening

Stay well

@ChrisPrice - That's down right dangerous, and probably very uncomfortable, a loaded pistol on each hip...in a catsuit, it'll probably chafe like crazy, why not go for some combats or some thick jeans  8).

As for the song...Your best so far Chris, really very tight and beautifully executed, has a lovely "Live" feel to it. wonderful guitars and BV's

Great song Chris.

Wonderful bluesy rock. I agree, it does sound reminiscent of the Stones but that is no bad thing, especially when it is done with genuine enthusiasm and panache.

Love the lyrics. Dingy, wicked seduction that is simply irresistible. Really draws you in.

Love the guitar work. Joyful exuberant playing, that swings along, gets you up and dancing. Your voice also is superb. You're a true rocker.

nice. lots of humour here
"1 look and I just fell" I like the hesitation in there.

I never took the time to learn to play the guitar like that.

What a class act you are!
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

I can promise you a future of slow decline.

And there you have it.

I really like the name "Spider Maya" - just that name conjures up a vivid image of who we are talking about here.

Nothing wrong with a big of Stones influence - it's a foot tapper and a head nodder, and very nicely produced - I like the way the rhythm guitars are quite understated and not just a wall of sound.

A great bluesy rocker.

You seem to be able to knock out these rock classics so effortlessly @ChrisPrice I really admire that. You're years of gigging shines through and you know exactly what you're doing. This is as catchy as anything as well. A rockin toe tapper for sure

Nice one, well produced, eventhought dire Straits is not my favorite band, can’t wait to comment your rocky american one though 😁, she is great

Hey Chris! Man, your music always packs a punch! I love it, you talented bastard!!🤩🤣🤣 I believe I’ve met the seductress “Spider” before in another song of yours….always up to no good….probably with me if I ever met her!! (I’ve met a few like her anyway!🤪)
Your production is sooo good man. Great job!

Hi Chris,

A good ol' slice of old school rock. What's not to like?
Foot tapping, head nodding goodness.
