about

The Nouveau Guinea Wind Ensemble plays their take on the blues

lyrics

Strollin' down the avenue
Ramblin' 'thout a plan.
Must be somethin' missin'
Like the toast wit'out the jam.
Don't nobody want me
Life's out and on the lam.
I'm buckled, bent and busted
Like an old tin can.

Life can be so easy.

I'm a roamin' cowboy
Got my feet stuck in the clay.
I'll be found the world around
And never go away.
Send me off forever
I'll be home by end-of-day.
Say the game is up
And I will soon begin to play.

Life can be so hard.

Crazy livin'
I ain't got no alibi.
When pennies rain from Heaven.
I am left here high and dry.
The belfry has been broken
And the bats are on the loose.
My bridges are all burning
With these Trancendental Blues.

You're the roller coaster
That has fallen from the track.
You feel the sting from when the wing
Were pullen from your back.
All the things you have
Are all the things you used to lack.
Stick your head inside the bars
And fead the beast its snack.


Crazy livin'
I ain't got no alibi.
When pennies rain from Heaven.
I am left here high and dry.
The belfry has been broken
And the bats are on the loose.
My bridges are all burning
With these Trancendental Blues.
