The birth of the blues
These are the blues Nothing but blues Oh, they say some people long ago Were searching for a diffrent tune One that they could croon As only they can They only had the rhythm They started swaying to and fro They didn't know just what to use That is how the blues really began They heard the breeze in the trees Singing weird melodies And they made that the start, the start of the blues And from a jail came the wail Of a down-hearted frail And they played that As part of the blues From a whippoorwill Way up on a hill They took a new note Pushed it through a horn Until it was worn Into a blue note And then they nursed it They rehearsed it And then sent out that news That the Southland gave birth to the blues They nursed it And they rehearsed it That the Southland they gave birth to the blues
