Blues means what milk does to a baby. Blues is what the spirit is to the minister. We sing the blues because our hearts have been hurt, our souls have been disturbed.
Until they put that sand and dirt in my face I will not sit in church all day.
None of them going to treat me bad, honey, I'm too strict for that.
Put your faith in God and confidence in yourself.
Maybe if I knew music I couldn't do what I am doing.
