  1. "Blues" music.....


    "I'm Done Cryin' " by The Robert Cray Band




    " I begged for mercy

    called out in pain

    No one seemed to hear me

    it's like I don't have a name"



    "you can't use me anymore

    at least now I know, where I stand

    but you won't take away my dignity

    'cause I'm still a man"

    My name is John Johanna, I came from Buffalo town.
    For nine long years I’ve traveled this wide wide world around.
    Through ups and downs and miseries and some good days I saw,
    But I never knew what misery was ’til I went to Arkansas.

    I went up to the station the operator to find.
    Told him my situation and where I wanted to ride.
    Said, "Hand me down five dollars, lad, a ticket you shall draw.
    That’ll land you safely railway in the state of Arkansas."

    I rode up to the station then chanced to meet a friend.
    Alan Catcher was his name, although they called him Cain.
    His hair hung down in rat tails below his under jaw.
    He said he run the best hotel in the state of Arkansas.

    I followed my companion to his respected place.
    Saw pity and starvation was pictured on his face.
    His bread was old corn dodgers, his beef I could not chaw.
    He charged me fifty cents a day in the state of Arkansas.

    I got up that next morning to catch that early train.
    He said "Don’t be in a hurry lad, I have some land to drain.
    You’ll get your fifty cents a day and all that you can chaw.
    You’ll find yourself a different lad when you leave old Arkansas."

    I worked six weeks for the son of a gun, Alan Catcher was his name.
    He stood seven feet, two inches, as tall as any crane.
    I got so thin on sassafras tea I could hide behind a straw.
    You bet I was a different lad when I left old Arkansas.

    Farewell you old swamp rabbits, also you dodger pills.
    Likewise you walking skeletons, you old sassafras hills.
    If you ever see my face again I’ll hand you down my paw.
    I’ll be lookin’ through a telescope from home to Arkansas.

  9. You always post Great songs, Reelaround. Wow! I love this song! :) I've loved it ever since I first heard it as a little kid.


    I like Howlin' Wolf's short speech at the beginning of the video. I definitely know what its like to have "the Blues." I think most people have. He mentions you get "the Blues" when you don't have any money. And he says you get "the Blues" when you don't have any money to pay for rent or to buy food. In the past I was in that position several times. I was very lucky because I had multiple family members, and four good friends, who always gave me a place to stay & food to eat. I was very lucky. My friend Edward was homeless for seven years. My friend Ken was homeless for six. Life on Earth is hard. For literally everyone I know, it's very hard.





    :thumb: Beautiful song and wonderful video. I love all of the songs on "Harvest." I think this song definitely qualifies as "Blues," in its own way. Absolutely!


    :)Thanks a lot, Misguided Angel. I'm glad you like the songs I post. You post great music too!

  18. -The song starts playing at the 27 second point. Great song! It isn't necessarily traditional "Blues," but its a really nice song. B.B.'s voice & guitar playing are Awesome! My Mom & I were lucky enough to see B.B. King on this tour!:)
