Sunday Song Lyrics 9/25/16

I assumed for years that Kenny Wayne Shepherd was a country singer…down just a ways on my list of favorite kinds of music so I never listened to him, but then we saw him in an amazing concert in a small venue. It was a tour where he was honoring all the old blues guys he could bring along. It was part of the project written about below, and was totally amazing.

From Wikipedia

“In 2007, he released a critically acclaimed and two time Grammy nominated DVD–CD project, 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads. This documents Shepherd as he travels the country to jam with and interview the last of the authentic blues musicians. As they tour the backroads, Shepherd, with members of the Double Trouble Band, play with a host of blues greats including Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown and Bryan Lee, Buddy Flett (with whom he jams at Lead Belly‘s grave), B. B. King, blues harp master Jerry “Boogie” McCain, Cootie Stark, Neal Pattman, John Dee Holeman, Etta Baker, Henry Townsend with Honeyboy Edwards, and a concert session with the surviving members of Muddy Waters’ and Howlin’ Wolf‘s bands, including luminaries such as Hubert Sumlin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith and Pinetop Perkins.

Lyrics from Google Play

Night
Falls and I’am alone
Skin
Yeah chilled me to the bone
You
Turned and you ran
Oh yea
Oh slipped
Right from my hand
Blue on black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
It don’t mean much
Joker on jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
As a dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream
Doesn’t change a thing
Doesn’t bring you back
Blue on black

Blind
Oh now I see
Truth
Lies and in between
Wrong
Can’t be undone
Slipped
From the tip of your tongue

Blue on black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
It don’t mean much
Joker on jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
As a dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream
Doesn’t change a thing
Doesn’t bring you back
Blue on black

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. I spent hours trying to dope out the words of “Pancho and Lefty” as sung by Emmy Lou Harris only to discover the words were printed on the “liner notes” — in this case, the booklet in the CD.

    I love song lyrics. What’s better the poetry sung to music? Answer: Nothing is better.

  2. I really liked this song a lot. I love his voice! I agree with Marilyn – nothing is better than poetry sung to music. It’s honestly one of the reasons I started this blog prompt. Thanks so much for sharing this song! 🙂
