Home of The Blues

They heard the breeze in oak trees
Making weird melodies
And they saw that as start of The Blues

From Parish Jail they heard the wail
Of a down-hearted frail
And heard that as a part of The Blues

From a whipporwill on Monkey Hill
They heard a new note
They pushed it through a horn
Until it was worn
Into a blue note

And then they nursed it...they rehearsed it
And then they gave out the news
That New Orleans is home of The Blues

(Sung to melody of "Birth of The Blues)

    Thanks. It's a parody of the old classic "Birth of The Blues".
