“I know my baby left me. Left me high and dry. I know my baby left me with nothing but gray clouds in my sky cuz she’s a low down woman. Steeling love everywhere she goes. She stole it from the start so you betta watch your heart. (He bows, picks up the hat and gather’s the money from the crowd. He looks into the hat, not a bad start.) I wrote that one for my wife (Beat) she ain’t my wife no more but she was and that is exactly what she did. She came into my life, stole my heart and ran out on me. (Laughs) Almost sounds like I had nothing to do with it, like while she was stealing my heart I was standing in the corner smoking a cigarette. (Laughs) I was there, doing the shit I always did, the low down dirty shit that made her take her love away from me. (Beat) See I sings the blues. Do you know what that means? It means that I take all the bad shit I’ve done, give it a beat and make it do what it do. Singing the blues won’t let you lie. Gotta be strong enough to look at yourself in the mirror and see you for who you are. (Beat) Singing the blues is the most difficult thing I’ve ever done especially out here on the streets. But the streets ain’t so bad. I got a job where I don’t pay taxes, a place to call home where I don’t pay rent, my crisp suit and I got (He picks up his hat) my hat. That’s all a blues brotha like myself needs is a suit and a hat. (He laughs, dusts off his hat and puts it back on the ground. Singing.) A blues brotha, yeah.
