Lyrics

TOO WHITE TO SING THE BLUES

MY FIRST NAME AIN'T MUDDY
MY LAST NAME AIN'T KING
THEY DON'T CALL ME LIGHTNIN
I DON'T HOWL WHEN I SING
I WASN'T BORN IN MEMPHIS
OR DOWN IN MOBILE
WELL I AIN'T GOT NO GUITAR
NICKNAMED LUCILLE
BUT OF EVERY TYPE OF MUSIC
THIS IS WHAT I CHOOSE
SOMETIMES I WONDER
AM I TOO WHITE TO SING THE BLUES?

WELL I LIVE IN THE SUBURBS
DRIVE A TOYOTA VAN
I GOT MUTUAL FUNDS
I AIN?T NO HOOCHIE COOCHIE MAN
WELL I AIN'T GOT NO MOJO
OR BLACK CAT BONES
WELL I LIKE THE BEATLES
WAY MORE THAN THE STONES
BUT OF EVERY TYPE OF MUSIC
THIS IS WHAT I CHOOSE
SOMETIMES I WONDER
AM I TOO WHITE TO SING THE BLUES


MY WOMAN AIN'T LEFT ME
WELL I AIN'T GONE BLIND
I AIN?T GOT NO CROSSCUT SAW
JUST THE SEARS CRAFTSMAN KIND
I AIN'T BEEN DOWN TO THE CROSSROADS
BY NIGHT OR BY DAY
IF I SELL MY SOUL TO THE DEVIL
IT'S GONNA BE ON EBAY
BUT OF EVERY TYPE OF MUSIC
THIS IS WHAT I CHOOSE
SOMETIMES I WONDER
AM I TOO WHITE TO SING THE BLUES
