I can play this:

Half a mile from the county fair and the rain keep pourin' down Me and Billy standin' there With a silver half a crown ...... my favorite line? And it stoned me to my soul Stoned me just like Jelly Roll What the hell does that even mean? I do not know. But I do know I can play this song, and that makes me a musical human.

I always thought VM's jelly roll was a little more innocent than other jelly rolls

I always thought it refered to Jelly Roll Morton.

Von said...

B4 might be correct, it is Jelly Roll, capital letters.
B4 ftw.
I'm guessing.
MenD, what other kinds of jelly rolls are there? Is it drrrrty?

It is my understanding it's an old slang term for a big doobie. But I could be wrong about that.
