‘Chris Thile and our band play Dr. John’s “Right Place Wrong Time” on our June 8, 2019 show.

Right Place, Wrong Time” is a song by American musician Dr. John. It was the first single from his sixth album, In the Right Place and became his biggest hit single.

A verse lyric from the song (“Just need a little brain salad surgery/got to cure my insecurity”) was the inspiration for the title of the album Brain Salad Surgery by the English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, replacing the working title of Whip Some Skull on Yer.[2] Both titles are slang expressions for fellatio

Right Place Wrong Time:
I been in the right place, but it must have been the wrong time
I’d have said the right thing, but I must have used the wrong line

I been in the right trip, but I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place and I’m wondering what it’s good for

I been the right place, but it must have been the wrong time
My head was in a bad place, but I’m having such a good time

I been running trying to get hung up in my mind (oooh)
Got to give myself a good talking-to this time
Just need a little brain salad surgery (oooh)
Got to cure this insecurity

I been in the wrong place, but it must have been the right time
I been in the right place, but it must have been the wrong song
I been in the right vein, but it seems like the wrong arm
I been in the right world, but it seems wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

{Bridge}

Slipping, dodging, sneaking, creeping, hiding out down the street (oooh)
See me life shaking with every ho’ I meet
Refried confusion is making itself clear (oooh)
Wonder which way do I go to get on out of here
I been in the right place, but it must have been the wrong time
I’d have said the right thing, but I must have used the wrong line
I’d have took the right road, but I must have took a wrong turn
Would’ve made the right move, but I made it at the wrong time
I been on the right road but, I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a good place and I wonder what it’s bad for
