The Birth Of The Blues Recorded by Randy Travis and Willie Nelson Written by Buddy DeSylva, Lew Brown, Ray Henderson
G7 D7 Oh they say some people long ago C G7 Were searching for a different tune C One that they could croon as only they can
D7 G7 C Am They heard the breeze in the trees D7 C Singing weird melodies F C G7 C And they made that the start of the blues
D7 G7 C Am And from a jail came the wail D7 C E7 F Of a down hearted frail D7 G7 C Fm C And they played that as part of the blues
E7 From a whippoorwill way up on the hill
They took a new note A7 Pushed it through a horn Am D7 G7 Till it was worn into a blue note
D7 G7 C Am D7 Then they nursed it rehearsed it C E7 F And they sent out the news D7 G7 C That the Southland gave birth to the blues
