Subject: RE: Funniest Talking Blues Song
"TALKING GUITAR BLUES" by the great Lonnie Donegan. Still in my repertoire for open mic nights and still gets laughs. Has one of the best lines ever, I reckon:-

"...my pa, he took it a different way,
said - you c'n turn yer ma's hair grey,
drive yer sister away from home,
but you or me boy, gonna roam,
and I ain't leaving - you work it out..."
