images“The blues ain’t nothin but a good woman on your mind.” The blues is  “……….”.

Fill in the blanks.

I think everyone knows what the blues is. I think every one has had the blues. It’s largely an African American genre of course and one of the roots of jazz – but the Blues in America has had an enormous overspill and mixing into white country blues and eventually into rock and roll. “I ain’t got nothin but the blues”, “I got the blues for my baby left me by the San Francisco Bay”, There are a million of them, and a zillion blues songs.

I’ve written a few myself, of course. Here’s one I wrote a long time ago that I just remembered. It’s a standard 12 bar blues: three chords.  Anyway……

It’s called “Two O’ Clock in the Morning”
