Lyrics
I´m sitting here in these old blue jeans
I´m wondering if I can tell you about all of my sins
I´m standing over my cool creepy shoes
I´m wondering if I can tell you about all of my clues
If I could change the blues

I have to drink all night, and everyday
I am affraid to die but I am living in pain
I got nothing to do and I got nothing to eat
I can leave you alone I can walk on the street
If I could change the blues
I´ll have to change some clues

SOLO

I never had any peace, I never had any fun
I always answer my questions holding onto my gun
I´m living life on the streets, I need some shelter tonight
I always wake up with the breeze and with the morning light
If I could change the blues

Faved so I can get notification
Thanks to Fran, Char, Laurie, Eddie, and Leo for the teamwork in bringing this together. This is the "first mastered mix", so once I hear feedback it may change. I'll give it some time away and maybe do another mix/master after listening. The separate tracks are available to anyone who wants to try their hand at mix/master. Just request here in a comment and I'll point ya to them... Thanks.

A fine song and a fine collaboration
Hi Freddie et. al.,
Very nice work! Char and Laurie's backing vocals now fit far more comfortably into the song and really add to it. Great work from Leo, Fran, Eddie and yourself with the backer and the mix/master is high quality. A fine song and a fine collaboration. Well done all. Warm regards, Peter.

It needs... more cowbell?
Love that step-down bluesy bass work, honky-tonk piano silliness, Fran's guitar is always lovely, and and I can see Char and Laurie in sequined dresses, swaying to the music in some dark night club (where's Laurie's sax duet with Fran though?) :-)

Great collaboration here!
ttfn,

If I Could Change The Blues
Reminds me of Clapton, with some Stones thrown in. I like the mix, it's easy to hear all the parts. Excellent musicianship throughout, and the vocals are right on. I think the song would benefit from a bridge which provides a contrast to the verse sections.

Loob said 2378 days ago (February 18th, 2011)
Thanks Dave.
I agree on Clapton/Stones mix. Also agree about the bridge, but the leads keep it interesting I think!

Superb blues
Kinda has a Texas blues sound to me and that cowbell just gives it a touch of distinction. The whole thing fits together great and is a fine song in and of itself for me. Fran, if your ears were burning, it's cause of the names I was calling you for being so damned good. Very jealous! Awesome work all involved!

Leo sent up another in this genre to be developed, so maybe more blues rock in the cards...

Totally into that saloon style piano solo break. Lead guitar might have been a touch "too much of a good thing," but didn't take away from the song. Glad I caught this.

Nice track!
Lots to love, excellent playing and singing and a clear production. On my first listen in my phones the vocals (lead and bgv) are a tad loud, but that may be just my phones (or the first listen). On the second listen not so noticeable.
Very cool blues indeed - well done everyone!

Don't change a thing!
There's so many wonderful elements in this song. Great song. Great lyrics. Frans guitar hacks out a wide trail for all these great vocals and honkytonk. Love this beat and the bass is boss. Gotta take this and keep it for a while, a long while. Thanks guys and gals. Terry
