Best Blues Lyric Ever .....?

Jimi Hendrix's 'Red House'


"If my baby don't love me no more...
.
.
.
.
I know her sister will"





Scintillating and ..er um ..practical. Cuts to the bone.

Not exactly what I had in mind.

As you seem to have an advaaaaanced case of the 'BLUES' a visit to your nearest psychiatrist is recommended.



Next please!


PS. No teabagging for you.

Tough one. Robert Johnson's "Hell Hound on my Trail'" has to be right up there. Some Bessie Smith numbers, Howlin Wolf/Dixon,.... I wouldn't know where to stop.

Anyone who has heard John Lee Hooker sing "Decoration Day" or "Bluebird" knows what the blues is, was and shall be.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

You're breakin' my heart
You're tearin' it apart
So fuck you
All I want to do
Is have a good time
Now I'm blue

You wanna boogaloo
Run down to Tramps
Have a dance or two--ooh!

You're breaking my heart
You're tearin' it apart
But fuck you
You're breakin' my heart
You're tearin' it apart
Ooh!--ooh!--

You stepped on my ass
You're breaking my glasses too

You wanna drive my car
Buy a lot of stuff
I've had enough
Of you--ooh!
I'm goin' insane
There's no one to blame
So fuck you

You've gotta have your way
There's nothin' left to say
There's nothin' left to do--ooh!
You're breakin' my heart
You're tearin' it apart
So fuck you

You've gotta have your way
There's nothin' left to say
There's nothin' left to do--ooh!
You're breakin' my heart
You're tearin' it apart
But I love you

Every word in Seven Sisters Blues by Funny Paper Smith is priceless and creepy. For a more modern feel this always makes me laugh:

So I go down the streets,
down to my good friend's house
I said "Look man I'm outdoors you know,
can I stay with you maybe a couple days?"
He said "Let me go and ask my wife"
He come out of the house,
I could see it in his face
I know that was no
He said "I don't know man, ah she kinda funny, you know"
I said "I know, everybody funny, now you funny too"

My favorite is Muddy Waters' "Diamonds at Her Feet".
She got to take sick and die one of these days
She got to take sick and die oh! one of these days
All the medicine I can buy, and all the doctors she can hire
She got to take sick and die one of these days

When she's dead I'm gonna bury her very deep
When she's dead I'm gonna bury her very deep
I'm gonna bury her very deep, rubies and diamonds round her feet
She got to take sick and die one of these days

I got to take sick and die one of these days
She got to take sick and die oh! one of these days
All the medicine she can buy, and all the doctors she can hire
She got to take sick and die one of these days

She got to take sick and die one of these days
She got to take sick and die one of these days
All the medicine she can buy, and all the doctors she can hire
She got to take sick and die one of these days

If it was me and all the powers in my hands
If it was me and all the powers in my hands
If it was me and all the powers laying there child in my hands
She would have to go down to the promised land

You know that his version is basically a cover of John Lee Hooker's original song, right?
