Ridin' the Blues

Ridin' the Blues

Blue sky above me I ride
the map's blue highways,
the blue back roads and byways

that lead me to small towns along
meandering blue rivers,
like the Mississippi which has always
been brown , not blue,

but has inspired the blues,
played a part in the blues,
the Mississippi Delta blues,
played by black men with blue guitars,
singing and playing heartfelt rhythms,

like the song of the v-twin motor
of my blue motorcycle that I ride
down the blue highways,
blue back roads and byways
beneath a blue sky.
