    "The Birth of the Blues" Lyrics

    Frank Sinatra

    These are the blues
    Nothing but blues

    Oh, they say some people long ago
    Were searching for a diffrent tune
    One that they could croon
    As only they can

    They only had the rhythm
    They started swaying to and fro
    They didn't know just what to use
    That is how the blues really began

    They heard the breeze in the trees
    Singing weird melodies
    And they made that the start, the start of the blues

    And from a jail came the wail
    Of a down-hearted frail
    And they played that
    As part of the blues

    From a whippoorwill
    Way up on a hill
    They took a new note
    Pushed it through a horn
    Until it was worn
    Into a blue note

    And then they nursed it
    They rehearsed it
    And then sent out that news
    That the Southland gave birth to the blues

    They nursed it
    And they rehearsed it
    That the Southland they gave birth to the blues
