Birth Of The Blues
Ohh, they say some people long ago Were searchin' for a diff'rent tune One that they could croon As only they can They only had the rhythm, so They started swayin' 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 Singin' weird melodies And they made that The start of the blues And from a jail, came the wail Of the down-hearted frail And they played that As part of the blues From a whippoorwill Out on the hill They took a new note (Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, whippoorwill) Pushed it through a horn 'Til it was worn Into a blue note (Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, whippoorwill) An' then they nursed it and rehearsed it And gave out the news That the 'Southland' Gave birth to the blues (Shout out the wonderful news) Oh, the breeze from the trees Wail from the jail A buzz from the cousin Of a nightin'gale And 'Southland' (Hello, hello) Gave birth to the blues
