I love the result. Jack did a great job creating a nice, growly blues song on the basis of a lyric of mine, the original of which I'd almost decided to deep-six. ;) I'm posting the song here in the Artist's Showcase, as it's not certain whether any further work will be done on it. We hope you enjoy it. :)

 

 

CONDEMNED TO THE BLUES 

 

V1

I seen you flirtin’

With a lover last night

And my heart can’t stop hurtin’

‘Cause it really ain’t right

My heart’s a prisoner

In your double-locked cell

No release for good behaviour

Though I treated you well

 

Chorus

I been condemned to the blues

To the memory of your eyes

They always used to glow

When you showed you were mine

Now you’re gone, and you’re free

To pick and choose

But as for me…I'm condemned to sing the blues

 

V2

I seen you smilin’

In our fav’rite café

And you looked so beguilin’

I had to turn away

Please show some mercy

Never did you no wrong

You were judge and jury

But your own rap sheet’s long   

 

Chorus

And I’m condemned to the blues

To the memory of your eyes

They always used to the glow

When you showed me you were mine

Now you’re gone, and you’re free

To pick and choose

But as for me…I'm condemned to play the blues

 

Bridge

Your disguise had me fooled

And my plea was overruled

I admit I’m to blame

‘Cause I let myself 

Be framed by your lies

 

Chorus

Now I’m condemned to the blues

To the memory of your eyes

They always used to the glow

When you showed me you were mine

Now you’re gone, and you’re free

To pick and choose

And as for me…I'm condemned to sing the blues

 

(optional)

You’re free to pick and choose

As for me…I’m condemned to the blues
