Blues School - the first Sunday Sermon - CinemaDave

Nov. 12th, 2006 01:00 pm Blues School - the first Sunday Sermon



Song Lyrics from B.B. King lyrics - Why I Sing The Blues lyrics

Everybody wants to know
Why I sing the blues
Yes, I say everybody wanna know
Why I sing the blues
Well, I've been around a long time
I really have paid my dues

When I first got the blues
They brought me over on a ship
Men were standing over me
And a lot more with a whip
And everybody wanna know
Why I sing the blues
Well, I've been around a long time
Mm, I've really paid my dues

I've laid in a ghetto flat
Cold and numb
I heard the rats tell the bedbugs
To give the roaches some
Everybody wanna know
Why I'm singing the blues
Yes, I've been around a long time
People, I've paid my dues

I stood in line
Down at the county hall
I heard a man say, "We're gonna build
Some new apartments for y'all"
And everybody wanna know
Yes, they wanna know
Why I'm singing the blues
Yes, I've been around a long, long time
Yes, I've really, really paid my dues

Now I'm gonna play lucille.

My kid's gonna grow up
Gonna grow up to be a fool
'cause they ain't got no more room
No more room for him in school
And everybody wanna know
Everybody wanna know
Why I'm singing the blues
I say I've been around a long time
Yes, I've really paid some dues

Yeah, you know the company told me
Guess you're born to lose
Everybody around me, people
It seems like everybody got the blues
But I had 'em a long time
I've really, really paid my dues
You know I ain't ashamed of it, people
I just love to sing my blues

I walk through the cities, people
On my bare feet
I had a fill of catfish and chitterlings
Up in downbill street
You know I'm singing the blues
Yes, i really
I just have to sing my blues
I've been around a long time
People, I've really, really paid my dues

Now father time is catching up with me
Gone is my youth
I look in the mirror everyday
And let it tell me the truth
I'm singing the blues
Mm, i just have to sing the blues
I've been around a long time
Yes, yes, i've really paid some dues

Yeah, they told me everything
Would be better out in the country
Everything was fine
I caught me a bus uptown, baby
And every people, all the people
Got the same trouble as mine
I got the blues, huh huh
I say i've been around a long time
I've really paid some dues

One more time, fellows!

Blind man on the corner
Begging for a dime
The rollers come and caught him
And throw him in the jail for a crime
I got the blues
Mm, i'm singing my blues
I've been around a long time
Mm, i've really paid some dues

Can we do just one more?

Oh i thought i'd go down to the welfare
To get myself some grits and stuff
But a lady stand up and she said
"you haven't been around long enough"
That's why i got the blues
Mm, the blues
I say, i've been around a long time
I've really, really paid my dues

Fellows, tell them one more time.

Ha, ha, ha. that's all right, fellows.
Yeah!

You are really getting into this!

Hi Dave,

This is your photographer/videographer saying I enjoyed finding your journal entries online. Have you gotten any response from them, other than this one?

I hope to get you the film clip to view later today . . .

Did you know, when I was in college in a suburb of Chicago, many years ago, I wrote reviews for my college newsletter on "A Clockwork Orange" and the stage production of "Hair." At one point, I thought I wanted to be a movie critic! When my daughter was in college at FAU, a couple years ago, she also dabbled in movie criticism, until she got promoted to being assistant editor, and then editor, and didn't have time for it any more.

I suspect we have lots to talk about, and more adventures in store for us.

Have a great day!

Hey Steve,

Loved that video of Dave, Tim and the train. Conjured up some echoes of Robert Johnson and the legendary blues crossroads. From a musician's standpoint, your video truely struck a chord (excuse the pun). Really was outstanding, hope to see more of your stuff.

Thanks Banana Mike for visiting the Journal.

Thanks to Steve and Broward County Libraries Marketing team, we produced a video by the railroad tracks, I will have the link on my journal within a few days.

Adventures?
As Samatha Sterling sings at the Adventurer's Club in Downtown Disney,
"Adventure keeps calling my name!"

With regards to our video, the response from our colleagues in the building has been nothing but positive. I am glad to be apart of BCL history.
