Probably ain't a man here who hasn't (or sure will!) know what Bob's talking about....

I think "I started out with nothing and I still got most of it left" is pretty cool.

"Every time I stand up, the blues knock me down to the ground."
Carl Weathersby, The Blues Follow Me Around

Theres a fantastic amplified harp version of this on
Blues Harp Meltdown Volume 1 which is from the annual

I love that Blues Harp Meltdown Volume 1, after reading your post I pulled it out to listen to it again. "Blues Keep Following Me Around" - Billy Branch

He plays on a recent release called "The Way Things Go" by veteran bluesman Cleveland Fats
teaming with his former boss Robert Lockwood Jr.
I might have to buy that one, you haven't heard it have you ? Like to get some feedback.

"Going back home, going back to Savannah again
Yeah, going back home, going back to Savannah again
Those poor Savannah women, been making love with other men."

From an old acoustic blues, can't remember the name of singer or song.

How about this old favorite
If the river were whiskey id be a Divin Duck

Or Billy Peak's Can a white boy play the blues.

I was born and raised in St Louey Mo ...Grew up in Blues city on a street called tower grove ...
Right next to the pool hall slammys was the place were i first heard the big bad blues put a smile on my face...

Well i started hanging out on the east side were the Big bad blues band played..I said to myself shit man i got it made...
But they wouldn't teach me that sound..Till one old black man looked me straight in the eye he said son i got bad news there aint a white boy livin today that can play the black man's blues..

No matter what that ole man said i wouldn't let it get me down ...Because i'm a St Louey man and i stole every tune that they thru down..Now im here to prove now to you ..This here white boy can play the big bad Blues..

Tell me now people can a white boy play the blues..
