Rolfyboy6 Help: Old Blues lyrics question (6) RE: Help: Old Blues lyrics question 07 Apr 02


I don't recognize this at all. Further, it is written in 'literary' English (not common in the blues) and the meter/rhyme sceme isn't one that is usual in the blues. And it's a quatrain. Before 1947 it is unlikely that this would have been part of the blues as it arose out of the south. Possible exceptions would be in gospel (notice the sin washing), or in pop parts of big band swing (then popular).
