Bourbon Blues, on the street, loose and complete
Under skies of smoky blue green

Pale as a light bulb hanging on a wire
Sucking up to someone just to stoke the fire
Picking out the highlights of the scenery
Saw a little cloud that looked a little like me
I had my hands in the river, my feet back up on the banks
Looked up to the lord above and said, hey, man, thanks
Sometimes I feel so good I got to scream
She said Gordie baby, I know exactly what you mean
She said, she said, I swear to god she said

E|-----------------------------|-----------------------------|

My memory is muddy, what's this river that I'm in?
New Orleans is sinking, man, and I don't wanna swim

Swim!


**If you do the “Killer Whale Tank” version, this is a nice alternate to play under the rap.
