lyrics

WHITE MAN SINGS THE BLUES

I can't take no more, there ain't no use
Can't keep on doin' what it is you think I do
And the words that I've been listening to
Are as honest as a white man sounds when he sings the blues
I know we're through

Take me where the wild things grow
Where the truth is found 'cause its roots are down below
Where the system is a saviour’s song
Where I feel the rhythm but the tune is still unborn
I know it's one

String a feather on a silken twine
Weave the twine with the laurel leaves
Wring a river to make a wine
Brew the wine with the laurel to make a tea
Drink me

I can't take no more, there ain't no use
I can't keep on doin' what it is you think I do
And the words that I've been listening to
Are as honest as a white man sounds when he sings the blues
I know we're through

It’s like a white man singing the blues
Like a white man singing the blues

about

Melanie Nashville, Tennessee

Pieces of a career, scattered by the winds of experience and assembled again by the force of love into the most personal and brilliant moments of her musical journey. Melanie is poised to enlighten new generations about what it means to sing with both passion and eloquence, to write at once with intelligence and emotion, and to inspire through song. Nobody does this better.
(Robert L. Doerschuk)
