The Birth Of The Blues

(B.G. DeSylva, Lew Brown and Ray Henderson)

  		
Intro: D7 G7 Dm7 G7 C Fdim C 

A7  G#7   G7    C   C/B        Dm7   G7 
They heard the breeze    in the trees 
 G7M      C   E7   F          
Singing weird melodies 
         D7        G7                 C    G#7  G7 
And they made that   the start of the blues 
A7  G#7 G7   C  Am           Dm7 
And  from  a jail    came the wail 
G7    C    E7       F 
Of a down-hearted frail 
          D7         G7     Dm7    G7     C    Fdim C 
And they played that    as part of the blues 
C       C/B     E7   Dm6       E7 
From a whippoorwill, out on a hill 
Dm6        Bm5-/7  E7  Bm5-/7 
They took a new note 
 E7                  A7  A4/7         A7 
Pushed it through a horn  til it was born 
 Am7    D7        G7 
Into a new note 
A7    G#7   G7   C      Am    Dm7    G7 
And  then they nursed it, rehearsed it 
G   C  Bm5-/7  E7   F       
And gave out  the news 
          D7  Dm7   G7                   C    Am   G#7 G7 
That the southland    gave birth to the blues 
C       C/B     E7   Dm6       E7 
From a whippoorwill, out on a hill 
Dm6        Bm5-/7  E7   Bm5-/7 
They took a new note 
 E7                  A7  A4/7         A7 
Pushed it through a horn  til it was born 
 Am7    D7        G7 
Into a new note 
A7    G#7   G7   C      Am    Dm7    G7 
And  then they nursed it, rehearsed it 
G   C  Bm5-/7  E7   F       
And gave out  the news 
D7    Dm7  G7  G#7  G7       Gdim          C   Bb7 G#7 C 
That the southland      gave birth to the blues
