"We're talking about the life of a human being."

Howlin' Wolf lectures Son House on the blues.


When your anchor fails on a factor two fall, you sure enough got the blues.

No. I reference Howlin' Wolf. He knows.

When you run out of blue camalots and you got another 50 feet to go, you got the blues.

Human hixtory unknown, call and response, gospel, chain gangs. blues. Maybe when you have the blues too long it makes you want to holler.

Never really felt it, but a bit in the soul, makes me glad to be human and give thanks for their works.

When your 40 feet above your last bolt, and you're shaking like a dog shittin' peach pits thinking about that 80 feet of the cheese grating you're about to get, you sho' enuff got the blues.
