about

Can This Black Man Sing The Blues was inspired by the events of Hurricane Katrina.

lyrics

I ran into this old man.
Who declared today was “Blues Day.”
Who declared yesterday was “Blues Day.”
I asked him, in a vehement tone.
“Man, what you talking „bout?”
He responded, “You know;
“We‟ve‟ been singing the blues for a long time.”
“We‟ve been singing the blues for a long time.”
“I couldn‟t imagine life without these old-tyme hymns”.
“These old-tyme hymns make me feel alive.”
Life, well life;
Wouldn‟t be the same.
Life, well life;
Wouldn‟t be the same.
It‟s our heritage you see.
Our legacy.
From the cotton fields and the lily fields…and the African plains:
Can this black man sing blues?
To Jim Crow and Martin King;
From Martin King to the Katrina waves.
Can this black man sing the blues?
Can this black man sing the blues?
Can this black man sing the blues?
