Blues Lyrics

have changed for the times. From "Oh, yo man done gone" or "I'm gonna leave you with the blues" to the chains of addiction. Interesting, morphine not cocaine or heroin. They demand equal time from the scop. Of course "Cocaine" has already been done quite well. So has "Poppies" I guess.
