BLUES EXPRESS

 

 

THE BLUES EXPRESS
CAME DOWN FROM MEMPHIS
TELLING TALES OF TROUBLE IN THE COTTON FIELDS

WORKERS SANG TO RELIEVE TENSIONS
OVERWORKED AND UNDERPAID
EARLY VOICES TOLD THE STORIES
THE FOUNDATIONS WAS LAID

THE BLUES EXPRESS
JUMP ON BOARD AND TAKE A RIDE
THE BLUES EXPRESS
CAST YOUR TROUBLES ASIDE

CAST YOUR TROUBLES ASIDE

THE BLUES EXPRESS
TRAVELLED STATE TO STATE
STORIES KEPT ON GROWING WITH EVERY BORDER IT CROSSED

HEAR ITS RHYTHM ROLLING DOWN THE TRACK
THE LEGENDS BOARDED SIGNED THEIR NAME
THROUGH ITS TRAVELS TOOK MANY STYLES
STILL IT’S ALL REMAINED THE SAME

THE BLUES EXPRESS
THERE’S NO WHERE YOU CAN HIDE
THE BLUES EXPRESS
IT JOURNEYS FAR AND WIDE

THERE’S NO PLACE YOU CAN HIDE

THE BLUES EXPRESS
WOULD STOP FOR NOTHING
FROM THOSE SMALL BEGINNINGS IT TRAVELLED AROUND THE WORLD

THOSE EARLY DAYS SO LONG AGO
IT HADN’T YET BECOME RENOWN
NOW IN BARS ACROSS THE GLOBE
ALL THE BANDS LAY IT DOWN

THE BLUES EXPRESS
JUMP ON BOARD AND TAKE A RIDE
THE BLUES EXPRESS
CAST YOUR TROUBLES ASIDE

JUMP ON BOARD AND TAKE A RIDE
CAST YOUR TROUBLES ASIDE

THE BLUES EXPRESS
THERE’S NO WHERE YOU CAN HIDE
THE BLUES EXPRESS
IT JOURNEYS FAR AND WIDE

JUMP ON BOARD AND TAKE A RIDE
CAST YOUR TROUBLES ASIDE
