Covers: You Never Can Tell

Chuck Berry’s “You Never Can Tell” was recorded in 1964.  It’s one of the best songs of his post-jail renaissance.  I love his invented word “coolerator’ which he used instead of refrigerator.

It has been covered by a diverse group of artists such as John Prine (1975) and Emmylou Harris (1977).  Bruce Springsteen played it live on his 2013 tour.
