Take a look at this delicious song by Lonnie Mack...


Chocolate on my fingers, icing on my lips
Sugar diabetes and blubber on my hips
I keep the night light burning in the kitchen baby
So I can go downstairs and cruise
I got them chocolate chip
Hot morsel cookie blues

I hide'em in a cabinet, I keep'em in a jar
For emergency's you know
I keep'em in the Glove compartment of my car
And I can't live without'em
They git' me higher than I can get
I got them chocolate chip
Hot morsel cookie blues
Doctor says I'm crazy
You better give'em up and quick
Or you'll be pushing up daisies because
Boy you definitely sick
I couldn't quit if I wanted to
Yeah I don't wanna lose
It's them chocolate chip
Hot morsel cookie blues

"Lonnie's early music bridged the gap between '50s rockabilly and the psychedelic blues-rock of the following decade, and, like the best rock and roll, his work continues to embody a mixture of white and black roots music.  Rock, blues, soul and country -- Lonnie brings them all together for a sound that has been all his own.

Lonnie was born in 1941 in Harrison, Indiana -- some twenty miles west of Cincinnati.  From family sing-alongs he developed a love of country music, while he absorbed rhythm and blues from the late-night black radio stations and gospel from his local church.  Starting off with a few chords that he learned from his mother, Lonnie gradually blended all the sounds he heard around him into his own individual style. 

He began playing professionally in his early teens (he quit school after a fight with his sixth-grade teacher), working clubs and roadhouses around the tri-state border area of Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.  In 1958, he bought the guitar he still plays today -- Gibson Flying V serial number 7.  In addition to his live gigs, Lonnie began playing sessions for the King and Fraternity labels in Cincinnati.  He recorded with blues and r and b greats like Hank Ballard, Freddie King and James Brown. "
