The Blues Lives Here


Anni Piper came in with her band and recorded a song with a real great groove and I thought it'd be good for Misipi to have a groove like that and my wife Jan loves funky stuff and is always after me to write that kinda groove, so I asked Anni if I could borrow the groove and a few chords and write a song around it. I wrote it over 2 days and by the time I'd finished it didn't sound much like Anni's song at all!

I like the song quite a bit, but not as much as my wife and others, who LOVE it. We put it on as first song of the album but I still don't know if that was a good idea or not.

It's also a bit longer than we would have liked it, but I never found a way of cutting it down without wrecking it. There's several parts to the song, so it kinda just has to be that long... sorry Mr DJ.

Welcome to my home,walk right in,the Blues lives here (x2)
Send help, send help to a helpless man
Send help, I've done all that I can

Welcome to my life, sit right down, the Blues lives here (x2)
Send help, send help to a helpless man
Send help, I've done that I can

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be
Trouble without end A-A-Amen

Welcome to my world, step right up, the Blues lives here (x2)
Send help, send help to a fallen man
Send help, well I've done all that I can
