In The Words Of Bluesman Jack

From bar to bar
I play my life story
to the crowd

I play for the people
I play for my sanity

I've played
for forty years on the road
with nothing but the blues

I've lived a full life
but a lonely life
The hearts I have taken
The hearts I have broken

It all comes together
in the blues songs of salvation
with the pain and the hate
of a world in despair

From bar to bar
I play my life story
to the crowd

I play them the blues
the blues of salvation

    This poem makes me wonder if you been reading my mail Dave. I been there. I done that.
    When I sing, I sing the blues. Comes from poverty. Comes from pain. Comes from missing those who won't come again. Seems we call out when need. Seems we sing the blues and we bleed. Hearts we hurt. Not really news. Another reason we sing the blues.
