A Vicenarian Verse: The Blues, Baby

I’m back at the Chicken Shack

Singing the Autumn blues

Bass notes bend

Around your blue suede shoes

I’m standing with Stevie Ray Vaughan

Before he takes off

He’s talking about Dallas or something

But you just scoff

Now Crossroad Blues is playing

And I’m swayin in the breeze

Robert Johnson serenades

As you begin to flee

Now I’m singing the blues baby

You’ve left me here all alone

I’m singing the blues baby

Right next to my headstone
