Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
These are the blues
Nothing but blues
Verse 2
Oh, they say some people long ago
Were searching for a different tune
One that they could croon
As only they can
Verse 3
They only had the rhythm
So they started swaying to and fro
They didn't know just what to use
This is how the blues really began
Verse 4
They heard the breeze in the trees
Singing weird melodies
And they made that the start of the blues
Verse 5
And from a jail came the wail
Of a down-hearted frail
And they played that
As part of the blues
Verse 6
From a whippoorwill way up on a hill
They took a new note
Pushed it through a horn
Until it was worn into a blue note
Verse 7
And then they nursed it
They rehearsed it
And then sent out that news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues
Verse 8
They nursed it
Then they rehearsed it
And then sent out that news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues
