Bye Bye Bluesbird


Lady sends me singing fine and mellow,
and Mister Five by Five tells me the news.
Cool lemon pie or steamy hot bellow,
it ain't no jive alive, my friend, it's blues.
Heard it told the blues is just a bad dream
that creeps into your bones when times is bad.
Baby, sadness ain't about a blues theme--
that soul cry means to lift you outta sad!
Trouble and toil worry your sweet soul,
a weary day will well up tears like rain,
but wail your sorrow, climb outta that hole.
You'll lose them devil blues by the refrain.
Open your mouth and sing your sorry heart,
your lonesome jones will beat retreat and part.
