Birth Of The Blues

[G]They heard the breeze in the [D7]trees
Singing [G]weird melo[C]dies
And they [D7]made that the start of the [G]blues

And from a jail came the [D7]wail   
Of a [G]down-hearted [C]frail
And they [D7]played that as part of the [G]blues

From a [B7]whippoorwill out on a hill

They took a new note
Pushed it through a [E7]horn till it was worn [A7]into a [D7]blue note

And then they [G]nursed it they [D7]rehearsed it
And [G]gave out the [C]news
That the [D7]Southland gave birth to the [G]blues

They heard the breeze in the trees
Singing weird melodies
And they made that the start of the blues

And from a jail came the wail
Of a down-hearted frail
And they played that as part of the blues

From a whippoorwill out on a hill

They took a new note
Pushed it through a horn till it was worn into a blue note

And then they nursed it they rehearsed it
And gave out the news
That the Southland gave birth to the blues
