Lyrics
BORN WITH THE BLUES Verse: The old man bent a note so hard His guitar screamed in pain He sang like a woman kept his heart Locked on a ball and chain He had a shot glass on his finger That he used for a slide It wouldnt have shocked me to see some tears Fall while his guitar cried Pre-chorus: Weathered persecution Discrimination and hate Lived thru segregation Tolerance came too late Chorus: They said his name was Elmore Wasnt like me or you He sang the song of his people He was born with the blues Verse: He didnt look like no messiah That bar room werent no church But the message he preached hit the heart Everyone felt the hurt Pre-chorus: Weathered persecution Discrimination and hate Lived thru segregation Tolerance came too late Chorus: They said his name was Elmore Wasnt like me or you He sang the song of his people He was born with the blues Bridge: Didnt need no choir to back him up Not how he played guitar It wasnt an offering plate they passed Just an old mayo jar Chorus Chorus Outro Born with the blues Born with the blues Lyrics: Carroll Kiphen All instruments: Robert Baitinger Vocals: Ian Jenkins
