Blues Within Blues

Dreaming Blues

 Came John Lee Hooker in a dream to me
            asking me to sing along
Came John Lee Hooker in a dream to me
            asking me to sing along
We were tumbling down a mountain
            and he handed me this song:                       

Empty House Blues 

Too many doors in that house
to keep you from walking away
Too many doors in that house
to keep you from walking away
Not enough locks on the fences 
            to keep you inside the gate
           
Too many windows to see through
to keep you from wanting to go
Too many windows to see through
to keep you from wanting to go
Not enough walls to hold you
or keep you from passing through

Not enough roofs on the rooftop
            to cover the holes that you left
Not enough roofs on the rooftop
            to cover the holes that you left
To many stairs in the staircase
            too many to climb up

When I woke up in the morning
            All these words were gone
When I woke up in the morning
            All these words were gone
I had to get some new ones
Came out something like a song
