The Land Where The Blues Began (Alan Lomax)

 
I SAID, THE BLUES, IS ABOUT WOMEN.

"Woman, it's your last time
Shakin' in the bed with me"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUT NOW, SINGING, WASN'T NO JOY IN IT WHATSOEVER.
I MEAN, THAT WAS JUST A PART OF THE WAY WE MEN
SET UP TO WORK TO GET THE JOB DONE.

"Up under the rail, up under the tie
Up under the rail, up under the tie
Up under the rail, up under the tie..."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THIRD DEGREE.

"Got me accused of thieving / I can't see a thing /
They got me accused of forgery / And I can't even write my name /
Bad luck bad luck is killing me /
Boys I just can't stand no more of this third degree / Now looka here boy /
I wanna tell you something /
They got me accused of taxes / And I don't have a lousy dime /
They got me accused of children / and ain't no one of them mine /
Bad luck bad luck is killing me /
Boys I just can't stand no more of this third degree / I'm gonna so baby so long."

DANCING THE BLUES.
