TITLE "SINGIN' THE BLUES FROM SINGIN THE BLUES"
played with a standard easy blues shuffle
USE strings for key in which you play
When I was a youg boy,I stood on a stool.
Playin' a broom tried singin' the blues.
Then I got older and got the real thing.
Bendin' them straws, more easy than strings.
I started smokin' and drinkin, and playin' around
Hit the doors when they opened played till they shut 'em down.....
Too many whiskeys and too many smokes,
Too many hours, playin' all night Jukes.
All of the women I'd choose and then lose.
Now I'm singin the blues ,
Now my old throats burnt up,I no longer sing
But I keep a slidin' and bendin them strings.
I no longer stay out that late any more,
My whisky is Cola them tired fingers are sore.
But I still got that guitar and E,B, and A
I sit here and play them throughout the day......
