In the land of the Delta Blues

At the Crossroads where the Devil

Took the soul and lit the fuse.

 

Formed the Stones, Left the stones,

left the rolling for others to do,

Couldn’t get No Satisfaction; so had to Paint it Black for you.

 

‘Purple Haze all through my brain…’

I listen to his cool refrain;

We’ll never see his like again, excuse me, while I…

 

‘Me and Bobby McGee’

Both miss the girl that sang for me,

It was no sweet voice that set her free. 

 

Mr. Mojo Risin’, the sunset fell on you

As you broke on through to the other side,

And the doors closed, as they do.

 

Play as you go; too soon, you know,

And never hear into what you’d grow

So, Mute, you go; Mute you go.

 

A tale of a Knight, that felt so right,

Oh, what might have been; when Knight met queen –

Acting the part, so sorely felt, did you depart.

 

Come on over, Valerie wants a chat,

But, life was not to be your crack,

And you are not coming back in black

 

You learnt the truth at… twenty-seven

That life was not for you, but Heaven…

Or Hell! But, you live on; that, I can tell.
