Birth Of The Blues (Marsters James)

It started a long time it started a long time it started a long time ago It started with a whip and a man went down a boot on his head as he laid on the ground but he didn't die he got up and start walking down that road And the man was a black man the man was a proud black man try-y-ing to go home and the man is hurt his bloods on the ground he needs some help but he's got no-one around So he digs down to his soul and sings a song that goes a little somethin' like this And the devil was there the devil was there you better believe the devil was there that day but the devil wasn't walking with the black man no the devil wasn't walking with the proud black man no the devil was wiping the blood off his boots that day And I can guarantee you brothers and sisters within a hundred and ten percent accuracy baby that jesus was walking with the black man that day that's the birth of the blue-es
