Lyrics

WHEN I HEARD THE BLUES

MOM AND POPPA TRIED TO WARN ME
TO GIVE UP ALL MY FOOLISH DREAMS
BUT I WAS BOUND AND DETERMINED
TO DO WHAT I BELIEVED

IT HIT ME LIKE A BOLT OF LIGHTNIN’
BROUGHT ME TO MY BENDED KNEES
YOU COULD SAY I FOUND RELIGION
IN THE RHYTHM OF A DRIVIN’ BEAT

WHEN I HEARD THE BLUES
I KNEW WHERE I WAS GOIN’
I FOUND WHAT I WAS LIVIN’ FOR
THE BLUES WAS ALL I CRAVED AND NOTHIN’ MORE
WHEN I HEARD THE BLUES
IT WENT WAY DOWN INSIDE ME
AND EVERYTHING MADE SENSE TO ME
I WAS BORN IN L.A.
BUT MY SOUL WAS BORN IN NEW ORLEANS

BROTHER PLAYED THE LATEST RECORDS
HAD ALL THE COOLEST 45’S
JACKIE WILSON AND THE COASTERS
AND EVERYTHING JUST CAME ALIVE

IT WAS EVERY PARENTS NIGHTMARE
AND EVERY CHILDS DREAM
A DIFFERENT KIND OF REVOLUTION
WITH DANCIN' IN THE STREETS

WHEN I HEARD THE BLUES
I KNEW WHERE I WAS GOIN’
I KNEW WHAT I WAS LIVIN’ FOR
THE BLUES WAS EVERYTHING AND SO MUCH MORE
WHEN I HEARD THE BLUES
IT WENT DEEP DOWN INSIDE ME
AND EVERYTHING MADE SENSE TO ME
I WAS BORN IN L.A.
BUT MY SOUL WAS BORN IN TENNESSEE

(CHS)

I WAS BORN IN L.A BUT MY SOUL WAS BORN IN
BORN IN L.A BUT MY SOUL WAS BORN IN
BORN IN L.A BUT MY SOUL WAS BORN IN
MACON, GEORGIA
AUSTIN, TEXAS
MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE
DETROIT
CHICAGO
AND MOST ANYWHERE IN THE U.S.A.
