Blues music

Rings freely through each ear

Rhythm and soul to help your mind grow

It brings one back to simpler times

Drinking bittersweet moonshine

Working in the cotton fields on hot summer days

Sitting back in old rocking chairs

Playing tunes on the old banjo

Tapping toes to the tunes on an old harmonica

Jamming around with the silky sound of a smooth clarinet

Sweat pouring down all around our Sunday best

No time to frown as jubilation now surrounds us

Young offspring hop carelessly about catching butterflies in the vast lily fields

Sweet, Sweet Music to My Ears©
