Blues for David.

entry picture

I wrote this as a song, when I could strum a bit, arthritis in my fingers has ended that. My cousins son who has a masters in music played the harp and sang. Then he mixed it at his uni studio. Its fitting this was the last I played. Some know I lost my beautiful son to a rare bone cancer five years ago now. 

Blues for David


Woke up this morning

I was feeling blue

Looked to my left

Couldn’t see you

Looked to my right

Thats when I knew

Oh my best buddy

Buddy where are you.


I have a million dollars,

And ten tons of gold

That I kept in a locker.

For when us two get old.

But its worth nothing now

Because we’re torn apart

And I know I can’t spend 

I can’t spend my fractured heart.

Reminds me of those old deep South blues numbers - sung by some
guy on his porch while his kin look on.
