The Blues Show

The Blues Show

Went to a concert last night
John Hammond James Cotton and Charlie Musslewhite
Played Blues music with all their might
It was outta sight!!!

John Hammond was first
Out of him burst
Blues music so full of soul
It filled my whole
Being with joy

The crowd welcomed Charlie Musslewhite to the place
He filled the space
With dulcet sounds from his harp
So crystal clear and sharp
The guitar player in his band
Got a little out of hand
He wowed the crowd
Playing fast and loud

The final act of the show
Came out real slow
James Cotton shuffled to centre stage
Clearly showing his age
He played Blues music
It was all very cubic
Music with sight sound and feeling
Was bouncing off the ceiling

John Hammond James Cotton and Charlie Musslewhite
Played Blues music to excite
Blues Hall of Famers all three
As I am sure you’ll agree
That the honor was justly deserved
As we just observed

The Blues show came to a close
And everyone rose
Applause rang out
Leaving no doubt
That what had transpired
Had rewired
The memory

Of the gathered assembly
