Breaking Up with the Blues

Good bye // Mr. Blues (2X)
Gonna do my best get along without you

Ol’ Mr. Blues // won’t you give me this chance
Mr. Blues // Please give me this chance
It’s finally time for my happy dance

I paid// paid and paid all my dues
I paid and paid // I paid all dem dues
It’s time for me to go now, Mr. Blues

Thank you Blues // you taught me well (2X)
You saved my life when my life was hell

Second mind // opened my heart (2X)
So don’t feel sad now that we’ve got to part.

Right now // things are lookin’ better (2X)
But you’re near as my ear, no matter what the weather

Mr. Blues // please let me be, (2X)
I need you now just to set me free

Good bye // Mr. Blues (2X)
Gonna do my best get along without you

Ol’ Mr. Blues // Let me show you the door (2X)
Someone out there might just need you more.

Mojo Medicine Show Colorado

The Mojo Medicine Show is a unique blues duo with deep roots in the music of Washboard Sam, Jazz Gillum & Sonny Terry. Our music takes you down south to the porches of rural Louisiana in the 1930's & the Chitlin' Circuit of Mississippi in the 1950's. We specialize in original, psychedelic, back porch blues blending the jug juice of 30's juke band music with the electric kool-aid jams of the 60's. ... more
