I BELIEVE IN THE BLUES

Written By: By WILLY SENKIWSKY

A cynical Willyism for the fucking day;

Thanks to whoever asked "what do you believe?" yesterday at another site, it set me off writing this song! Wrote part here and the rest, last night at a Blues bar! I thought there was a song "I Believe in the Blues" already, but checking, online, I can't find it! Doesn't mean there ain't one, just I can't fuckin' find it! This what I got, so far too many verses I know, it ain't written in stone! Anyway here's mine'

I BELIEVE IN THE BLUES

By WILLY SENKIWSKY 6/16/07 12:30 Low F Harp, Key of C, Slow 32 bar Shuffle

I don't believe in heaven & hell
I just don't think it's true!
I done enough time in a cell
And I believe in the Blues!

Even if luck been on your side
So far remember life ain't through!
One day it may get bumpy the ride
I ain't only one believes in the Blues!

The Blues gave birth to Rock & Roll
It's a lot more then someone's boo hoo!
Singin' can help you take control
That is why I believe in the Blues!

I don't believe in cyber love
Sounds good but it don't ring true!
Just like we here ain't no above
As long as here lasts we'll always have the Blues!

S'ok if that makes me an old dude
But "to thine own self be true!"
I believe in me can't speak for you
Still and all I believe in the Blues!

When you are feelin' so sad
And wonderin' what to do?
Really your life ain't half bad
Sit down a minute and listen to the Blues!

At a restaurant
You don't know what's in the stew!
It may not be what you want
But I do believe in the Blues!

From electric bands a wailing'
It is a music tried and true!
To one man singin' and playin'
It calms my soul I believe in the Blues!

I ain't got a license to teach
I ain't tellin' anybody what to do!
Far be it from me to preach
Just tellin' y'all I believe in the Blues!!!...

I THINK OF YOU

Written By: BY WILLY SENKIWSKY

A cynical Willyism for the fuckin' day;

This is a very simple 12-bar Blues! On a C-Harp you draw holes 2 - 4 twice, then blow 1 - 3 twice, the turn around is at hole 4! Draw twice and blow twice! Many people say, "the Blues are simple!" That's true if you ignore the fuckin' complexities!

I THINK OF YOU

BY WILLY SENKIWSKY 11/22/97 9:30 PM C-Harp, Key of G. Rocking Boogie.

I live across from a Laundromat.
Well, I live across from a Laundromat.
When I see them dryers a tumbling I think of you and where you're at!
(Piano solo)

I'm upstairs from a juke joint they always play the Blues.
I'm upstairs from a juke joint they always play the Blues.
When I hear that lonesome guitar wailing I always think of you!
(Guitar solo)

I think of you, how I'd watch you from the front.
I love the way you wiggle in your clothes!
I think of you, I ain't lying.
Last thing I seen was you, marching out my door, from behind!
(Harp solo)

In my room I play harp to blow away my Blues.
In my lonely room I play Harp to blow away my Blues.
What gives them to me? I get the Blues every time I think of you!!!...
