Blues=Life Do you need to *believe* what you sing? (150* d) RE: Do you need to *believe* what you sing? 16 Mar 03

Jerry, I agree with you. And I think Keb Mo is saying exactly that: I've got the blues because I was framed. However, I'm not sure that the protagonist of Folsom Prison Blues has no remorse. I think that he killed in cold blood, and now realizes a) that he deserves what he got and b) that he wishes he hadn't done it. This song, as written, has so much depth, and I wish Keb Mo had sung it as written. And yes, I can believe it and sing it, even though I haven't experienced it.
