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
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

From a whippoorwill way up on the hill

They took a new note
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

Repeat last verse
