about

Title track of my first album, recorded Live in the studio.

lyrics

Listen here now people
It's all over town, ain't you heard the news
Listen here now people
It's all over town, ain't you heard the news
You ain't seen nothin' like it
When a skinny old white man sings the blues

I ain't no black man
But yet and still I done paid my dues
You know I ain't no black man
But I sure enough done paid my dues
Just a skinny bald old white man
But I love to sing the blues

Now Robert Johnson is my hero
Son House gives me chills
Bukka White and Muddy Waters
Give me such a thrill
When I get that feelin'
Hear me weep and moan
I never been to Mississippi
But the Delta's in my bones!

Sure enough paid my dues
Just a skinny bald old white man
Love to sing the blues

You can clap your hands now, people
Jump and shout when you hear the news
Want you to clap your hands
Jump and shout when you hear the news
You can tell most everybody
How a skinny old white man sings the blues!
