The Moan of the Blues

A bottleneck upon open strings ~
The black ivory on a baby grand ~
Bent notes from a Hohner ~
Voices dripping with molasses ~
The chorus of a Mississippi juke
rattling in backwoods midnight ~
Melodies of flesh and moonshine ~
The death rattle of broken hearts ~
The sound of the soul ~
The Blues
