White Man Sings The Blues

Down in Louisiana
Cotton grows so high
The sun burns your back
But you don't ask why

White man comes along
Never paid his dues
He never suffered
He's never paid his dues
And the white man,
Sings the blues
And the white man,
Sings the blues

Mississippi burning
Black man takes his toll
Cruel to the bone
He sings from his soul

North to Chicago
B.B plays his blues
Oh you know he suffered
He really paid his dues
And the white man,
Sings the blues
And the white man,
Sings the blues

Black man calling out the blues
He always seems to lose
Black man calling out his song
He'd never do you wrong
