I tried to write a blues song, and I might go back and improve it, but this live demo is good enough to stand alone for now.

The lyrics are pure fiction, originally meant only as placeholders.

Well I saw it comin’
But I walked right through that door
Well I saw it comin’
‘Cause I’ve been here before

Well they say “fool me once, shame on you” man
“Fool me twice, won’t get fooled again”

Hat tip: George W. Bush for that last line.

Oh, mama you, doin’ the same thing you always do
And here I am, doing the same thing, too

Well I’m gonna leave ya
And move back to Tennessee
I’ll take my dog, my guitar, and dignity
Well I’ll do alright, woman, but you’ll do all wrong without me

Do wrong lady, do right man
When I get back west, I’m gonna start all over again
Well that’s all right mama you—doing the same thing you always do
And here I am, doing the same thing, too
