I ain’t much of a songwriter, I don’t suppose. I never sold anything or made any money from it. Once or twice, years ago, I recorded a cassette tape and sent it to a music publisher. A couple of times I tried to audition as a folksinger. To no success. Still, over the years I think I wrote a couple of good ones. Nowadays, I barely write songs at all. I suppose it’s an age-related phenomenon. Sometimes, though, when I’m playing guitar or piano, a good lyric comes into my head. Anyway, here’s one that I like to play. It’s a blues, and there’s nothing new or original when it comes to the blues. It’s called Evening Train Blues. It’s a happy blues.
I’ve pontificated on the three chord progression and the glory of the blues in earlier posts, so no need to go through all that stuff again, but I will remind everyone to keep their spirits up, and to “keep playin’ that country music”.
