Singin’ the Blues

Blues means what milk does to a baby.  Blues is what the spirit is to the minister.  We sing the blues because our hearts have been hurt, our souls have been disturbed.”  Alberta Hunter

Don’t know why Bell Bottom Blues by Derek and the Dominos came to my mind today, but it seems as good as anything else.  Any day is a good day for an Eric Clapton song, don’t you agree?

Bell bottoms have be in and out of fashion since the early 1800s.  However, they didn’t really achieve the status of fashion until the 1960s and 1970s.  Learn more about the origin of this unique style at http://www.dressthatman.net/2006/04/history-of-bell-bottom-pants.html

Eric Clapton’s music never gets old.

Bell bottom blues, you made me cry.
I don’t want to lose this feeling.
And if I could choose a place to die
It would be in your arms.

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I’d gladly do it because
I don’t want to fade away.
Give me one more day, please.
I don’t want to fade away.
In your heart I want to stay.

It’s all wrong, but it’s all right.
The way that you treat me baby.
Once I was strong but I lost the fight.
You won’t find a better loser.

[Chorus 2x]

Bell bottom blues, don’t say goodbye.
I’m sure we’re gonna meet again,
And if we do, don’t you be surprised
If you find me with another lover.

[Chorus]

I don’t want to fade away.
Give me one more day please.
I don’t want to fade away.
In your heart I long to stay.

Have a great week!
