Blues Lyrics Online

Yes folks, here you will find the answer to all of the following questions which I just know have been nagging you and keeping you awake for nights on end with those I-wish-I-knew-blues...

* Has anybody ever written a blues song about spaceflight?

* Is there a blues song that mentions the Kinsey Report? Or Godzilla? Or President Eisenhower? President Johnson? Napoleon Bonaparte? President de Gaulle of France? Margaret Thatcher?

* Has there ever been a blues recorded to the accompaniment of a sewing machine?

* Is there a blues about bad breath?

* And how's about a blues on the Internet?

* And how do I know if my mojo is working?

* More importantly, how lowdown can you get??

* And most importantly, what is the blues, anyway???

When you're thinking of black sheep
Just take a look at me
I'm the blackest of black sheep
That ever left old Tennessee
-Monette Moore, "Black Sheep Blues"

I have not limited myself to the well-known 'hits' in the repertoire, like St. Louis Blues, Dust My Broom, Stormy Monday, Little Red Rooster, etc. You'll find here some pretty obscure songs by some pretty obscure artists; I have tried to avoid the all-too-common "woke up this morning and my baby was gone"-type of lyrics (some exceptions may have crept in), unless they had something original to say.
But the choice is mine alone and I apologize if you don't find what you would like to find (my collection is limited, too :)

So enjoy this, my tribute to the blues and, I hope, a reflection not only on the blues itself but on the world in which this music was created.
