I am the blues
You gonna tell me the history of the blues? I am the goddamn blues.Look at me. Shit. I’m from West Virginia, I’m the first man in my family not to work in the coal mines, my mother scrubbed floors on her kness for a living, and you’re going to tell me about the goddam blues because you read some book written by John Hammond? Kiss my ass.
Bill Withers, blues encarnado.
