Birth Of The Blues - Matt Monro

Oh they say some people long ago

 

Were searching for a different tune

 

One that they could croon

 

As only they can

 

They only had the rhythm so

 

They started swaying to and fro

 

They didn't know just what they had

 

And that is how the blues really began

 

They heard the breeze in the trees

 

Singing weird melodies

 

And they made that

 

The start of the blues

 

And from a jail came the wail

 

Of a down hearted frail

 

And they played that

 

As part of the blues

 

From a whippoorwill out on a hill

 

They took a new note

 

And they pushed it through a horn

'Til it was born into a blue note

 

And then they nursed it rehearsed it

 

And they send out the news

 

That the southland

 

Gave birth to the blues

 

And then they nursed it and they rehearsed it

 

And they send out the news

 

That the southland

 

Gave birth to the blues
