Still Just Singin' the Blues · 4 July 2003

We’ll start out jammin’ rock and roll – how ‘bout some “Back in Black”
Then someone will play the baseline from Michael Jackson’s “Bad”
We’ll play a little Elvis and a country song or two
But when my guitar starts to playin’ it plays songs about you
And all it wants to play is the blues.

Chorus 1:
     Play that melody
     Play it loud and strong
     Then add a little bass line
     We’ll play it all night long
     Play some rock, some country,
     Or some “Blue Suede Shoes”
     But by the time we finish
     We’ll all be playin’ the blues.
     No matter what we’re playin’
     We’re still playin’ the blues

We’ll sing a little gospel with four-part harmony
Then someone will bust out with a solo or three
But as the night goes on my heart starts singin’ too
And all it wants to do is sing about you
Then all I want to sing is the blues

Chorus 2:
     Sing that melody
     Sing it loud and strong
     Then add a little harmony
     We’ll sing it all night long
     Sing some rock, some country,
     Or some “Blue Suede Shoes”
     But by the time we finish
     We’ll all be singin’ the blues.
     No matter what we’re singin’
     We’re still singin’ the blues

When I sit down with my guitar to write a country song
Sometimes I have to sit there and write it all night long
But no matter what I’m writin’, my mind always turns to you
Then every word I write is all about you
And all I want to write is the blues.

Chorus 2
