Some older style blues/jazz thing... i guess lots of lyrics fits to it... but i had the lyrics from "nigger blues/lasses blues" by Leroy "Lasses" White from 1912?? in my head while recording it... i can post lyrics if anyone want to sing a little... but open for everyone :) Im not sure about tempo.. maybe 150-160bpm?

Rat Now its quite much lyrics.. but u could maybe remove some verses to leave space for solos! :)

Oh! the blues aint nothing,
Oh! the blues aint nothing,
But a good man feeling bad,
Oh! the blues aint nothing
But a good man feeling bad,
Oh! that’s a feeling
That I’ve often had.

You can call the blues,
You can call the blues,
Any old thing you please,
You can call the blues
Any old thing you please,
But the blues aint nothing
But the doggone heart desease.

When a man gets blue,
When a man gets blue,
He takes a train and rides,
When a man gets blue,
He takes a train and rides,
When a woman gets blue,
She hangs her little head and cries.



Oh! yonder comes,
Oh! yonder comes,
The train coming down the track,
Oh! yonder comes
The train comin’ down the track,
To take me away,
But it aint going to bring me back.

Oh! when I die,
Oh! when I die,
Honey, Honey, don’t you wear no black,
Oh! when I die,
Honey, don’t you wear no black,
’Cause if you do,
My ghost will come sneaking back.

I’m goin’ to lay my head,
I’m goin’ to lay my head
Down on some railroad line,
I’m goin’ to lay my head
Down on some railroad line,
Let the Santa Fe
Try to pacify my mind.

Rat its nice!.. but i know ther are some other recordings of it too from 30s-40s.. but they have diffrent names.. so i can't find any of them... but should be some recordings with the some of the jug bands... memphis jug band or missippi shieks maybe cannon's jug stompers... and i think Bob wills made one in late 30s-40s too... but hard to find cuse they stole so much lyrics/melodys from similar songs back then and changed name.... and that song is one of most important blues songs, cuse one of the first 12 bar blues.. so lots of people stole from it +0
