Birth of The Blues

  		This song really needs to be played in inversions using bar chords. 
 
A7     Ab7  G7 C                   Dm7  G7       C        E7    F         D7 
They heard the breeze in the trees, singing weird melodies. 
 
                G7                                     C          Ab7    G7 
And they made that, the start of the blues 
 
 G7 F#7  F7  C                  Dm7 G7  C      E7        F              
And from a    jail came the wail  of a downhearted frail. 
 
D7           G7                                   C            Fm       C 
And they played that as part of the blues. 
 
 
C                        E7                                                         
From a whippoorwill, out on a hill they took a new note. 
 
                                A7                          Am7 D7               G7    
Pushed it through a horn till it was born into a blue note. 
 
 
G7   F#7 F7    C         Am     Dm   G7     C            E7  F          E7 
And then they nursed it, rehearsed it and gave out the news. 
 
              G7                                       C            F         C   
That the Southland, gave birth to the blues. 
 
 
C                        E7                                                        
From a whippoorwill, out on a hill they took a new note. 
 
                                A7                  Am7         D7               G7    
Pushed it through a horn till it was born into a blue note. 
 
 
        F#7   F7  C          Am     Dm     G7   C           E7  F  
And then they nursed it, rehearsed it and gave out the news. 
 
              G7                                       C          B       Bb      A7 
That the Southland, gave birth to the blues. 
 
               D7               G7                        C         C7     F      Fm    C     G     C.    
That the Southland, gave birth to the blues.
