Song Lyrics

(for guide purposes only)

Oh, they say my people long ago
Where lookin' for a different tune
One that we can croon
As only we can
We only had the rhythm
So, we started swingin' to and fro
We didn't know just what to use
But this is how the blues
I said the blues really began
Ohhh yeah

Weheard the breeze
Through the trees
Singing weird melodies
And we named that the start of the blues
Then from a jail
There came a whale
From a down-hearted frail
And we played that
To be a part of our blues

From a whippoorwill
High on a hill
They took a new note
Pushed it through a horn
Till it was worn into a blue note

You better believed me we nursed it
And we rehearsed it
Than we gave out the news
That the South Land, gave birth to the Blues
Can't find what your looking for?

Whatever your music requirements may be, Paris Music can produce it for you. We have produced an eclectic array of styles and genres including: dance remixes; jingles; instrumental albums (i.e. pan pipes); new age music; Gregorian vocals; and children’s nursery rhyme backing tracks.

All our professional backing tracks have definite endings – we don’t do fade outs – and are available in the original key unless stated otherwise. Alternatively, we can make songs available in alternate keys, however prices and availability will vary from track to track.
