Joe Offer ADD: Songs of the Ancient Matriarch (Holly Tannen) (5) ADD: Delta Blues (Holly Tannen) 01 Aug 21


Here's another gem I got by email from Holly:

DELTA BLUES

Got my N95, then I went and got my vax
Now the Delta variant is creeping through the cracks

I got the blues, I got the blues, got the mean old Delta Blues
I got the Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and the mean old Delta Blues

I try to wear a mask but I sniffle and I sneeze
Till I think I’m coming down with this ridiculous disease

I got the blues, I got the blues, I got the mean old Delta Blues
I know it must be true ‘cause I saw it on the morning news

I want to go to Sweden on a Viking river cruise
But I’m stuck in California with the Delta Blues

I got the blues, I got the blues, I got the mean old Delta Blues
I know all about it ‘cause I read it on Google news

I wanna smoke some dope and I wanna drink some booze
Will they help me to forget about the Delta Blues?

I got the blues, I got the blues, the mean old Delta Blues
I wanna go to bed and take a fourteen-hour snooze

I wanna hug my buddy and I wanna kiss my friend
And I wanna know if this fershlugginer plague will ever end

I got the blues, I got the blues, the mean old Delta Blues
I got the Alpha and Omega and the mean old Delta Blues
