CRANKY YANKEE Folksingers with phony identities (109* d) Lyr Add: BLUEBLOOD BLUES (Donna and Jody Gibson) 04 Sep 01

Donna and Jody Gibson

(Spoken introduction) Someone once told me, "You got to suffer to sing the blues". Hell, I ain't ever suffered. I've never been deprived of anything, and, Lord, I want to sing the blues, but...

1. My mama's in the D.A.R., she wears twenty-five-hundred-dollar Gucci shoes. (2x)
But if she was a barefoot laundress, whooooah, I could really sing the blues.

2. My daddy's a Wall-Street broker; see him on the evening news, (2x)
But if he was a sha-a-a-auh-r cropper, wow, could I sing them blues.

3. I got twenty-twenty vision, never spent a day in jail (2x)
But if God would only strike me blind, hoooah, then I could really wail.

4. If I could find a way to suffer, I know I could sing the blues, (2x)
So I'm gonna tear up all my credit cards and beat myself 'till I'm black and blue.

5. One day I asked my mammy, "Mammy, how do you sing the blues?"
I said, "Mammy, mammy, mammy. Momm-oh, how do you sing them blues?"
(Spoken) And she said, "It's not 'mammy' you ninny, it's 'nanny' and I haven't the foggiest notion."
