Thread Name: Best BLUES lines
Subject: RE: Best BLUES lines
Always loved "Leavin' Trunk": Gonna pack my leavin' trunk.
                               Ain't had no whiskey--
                               The blues have got me solid drunk
                                    --Taj Mahal, among many others

And of course: Saint Louis woman, with all her diamond rings--
                She got that man tied to her apron strings.
                Without that powder and paint and all that store-bought                                 
                     hair--
                You that man of mine, he wouldn't go nowhere.
