Default Monday Mornin\' Blues

Well, after a fabulous weekend, I was looking for something appropriate to post on this dreary Monday morning. I hope you will enjoy this morning's installment of "lighten up". I got a chuckle out of it.

Sing The Blues
How To Sing The Blues in 20 Easy Lessons:
1. Most Blues begin "Woke up this mornin'..."
2. "I got a good woman" is a bad way to begin the Blues, unless you stick somethin' nasty in the nex' line like, "I got a good woman, with the
meanest face in town."
3. The Blues is simple. After you get the first line right, repeat it. Then find somethin' that rhymes... sort of: "Got a good woman with the
meanest face in town. Yeah, I got a good woman with the meanest face in town. Got teeth like Margaret Thatcher, and she weigh 500 pound."
4. The Blues is NOT about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck in a ditch--ain't no way out.
5. Blues cars: Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks. Blues don't travel in Volvos, BMWs, or Sport Utility Vehicles. Most Blues
transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southboun' train. Jet aircraft and
state-sponsored motor pools ain't even in the runnin'. Walkin' plays a major part in the blues lifestyle. So does fixin' to die.
6. Teenagers can't sing the Blues. They ain't fixin' to die yet. Adults sing the Blues. In Blues, "adulthood" means being old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.
7. Blues can take place in New York City but not in Hawaii or any place in Canada. Hard times in Minneapolis or Seattle is probably just clinical
depression. Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City are good places to have the Blues. New Orleans, Memphis, Greenwood, Mobile and Statesboro are even better places to have the Blues cause that's where Blues was born.
Actually, a dirt farm in the Mississippi delta is the best possible place to have the Blues. You cannot have the blues in any place that don't get rain.
8. A man with male pattern baldness ain't the blues. A woman with male pattern baldness is. Breaking your leg cause you were skiing is not the
blues. Breaking your leg 'cause a alligator be chompin' on it is.
9. You can't have no Blues in a office or a shopping mall. The lighting is all wrong. Go outside to the parkin' lot or sit down by the dumpster.
10. Good places for the Blues:
a. highway
b. jailhouse
c. empty bed
d. bottom of a whiskey glass
Bad places for the Blues:
a. Nordstrom's
b. gallery openings
c. Ivy League institutions
d. golf courses
11. No one will believe it's the Blues if you wear a suit,'lessn you happen to be an ol' ethnic person, and you slept in it.
12. Do you have the right to sing the Blues? Yes,if:
a. you older than dirt (see;t=001106)
b. you blind
c. you shot a man in Memphis
d. you can't be satisfied
a. you have all your teeth
b. you were once blind but now can see
c. the man in Memphis lived
d. you have a 401K or trust fund
13. Blues is not a matter of color. It's a matter of bad luck. Tiger Woods
cannot sing the blues. Sonny Liston could. Ugly white people also got a leg up on the blues.
14. If you ask for water and your darlin' give you gasoline, it's the Blues. Other acceptable Blues beverages are:
a. cheap wine
b. whiskey or bourbon
c. muddy water
d. nasty black coffee
The following are NOT Blues beverages:
a. Perrier
b. Chardonnay
c. Snapple
d. Slim Fast
15. If death occurs in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it's a Blues death. Stabbed in the back by a jealous lover is another Blues way to die.
So is the 'lectric chair, substance abuse and dying lonely on a broken down cot. You can't have a Blues death if you die during a tennis match or while getting liposuction.
16. Some Blues names for women:
a. Sadie
b. Big Mama
c. Bessie
d. Fat River Dumpling
17. Some Blues names for men:
a. Joe
b. Willie
c. Little Willie
d. Big Willie
18. Persons with names like Michelle, Amber, Debbie, and Heather can't sing the Blues no matter how many men they shoot in Memphis.
19. Make your own Blues name Starter Kit:
a. name of physical infirmity (Blind, Cripple, Lame, etc.)
b. first name (see above) plus name of fruit Lemon, Lime, Kiwi,(etc.)
c. last name of President (Jefferson, Johnson, Fillmore, etc.)

For example: Blind Lime Jefferson, Jakeleg Lemon Johnson or Cripple Kiwi Fillmore, etc. (Well, maybe not "Kiwi.")
20. I don't care how tragic your life: if you own even one computer, you cannot sing the blues.

Blind Melon Chitlin .....

I heard a theory once that blues was all about the b's

Jimi Hendrix ... Black, Blues, Big hair, Buried

That's 4 b's and he could grind a serious blues guitar even if it was always way too loud.

Ray Charles ... Black, Blind, Blues,

for a total of 3 B's

Anyway .........

How about "Howlin' Wolf" aka Chester Burnett.
I love the blues and even play blues harmonica a bit.
One of my favorite blues songs is "I'm Ready" by Muddy Waters.
"I'm drinkin' TNT and smokin' dynamite. I hope some screwball starts a fight"

Thanks for this post Pilars Mate

You had that song cruisin my head all day....

She has eyes like crystal water
Lips like cherry wine
A body like fine brandy but
a soul like turpentine.

Ah Mama
You treat your daddy so damn mean
When I ask for water
She gives me gasoline

My woman is so damn evil
evil all the time
She wants for you to kill me
just so you have it on your mind

etc, etc

It is easier to fool people than it is to convince them they have all been fooled. Mark Twain

Hey, we even got blues here at the college. Dude ain't got no job. Ain't got no skills. Ain't got no cardboard for his castle, and his woman done lost her financial aid. Look like he done jump that north-bound train 'bout a month too soon.

Check out the Stu-Blues

Gonna study in the mo'nin,
Gonna study in the afternoon,
Gonna study in the mo'nin,
Gonna study in the afternoon,
Gonna hit the books in Augus',
Ain't gone look up 'til June....
