The Birth Of The Blues

Frank Sinatra

 

These are the blues

 

Nothing but blues

 

Oh they say some people long ago

 

Were searching for a diffrent tune

One that they could croon

As only they can

 

They only had the rhythm

They started swaying to and fro

They didn't know just what to use

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

 

Way up on a hill

 

They took a new note

 

Pushed it through a horn

 

Until it was worn

 

Into a blue note

 

And then they nursed it

 

They rehearsed it

 

And then sent out that news

 

That the Southland gave birth to the blues

They nursed it

And they rehearsed it

And that the Southland they gave birth to the blues
