nothin' like a guitar

"I've been down a lot of roads
Seems like everywhere I go there's blues
Miles and miles of blues.

The Delta ain't the only place
You might find sorrow on some face.
There's blues
Miles and miles of blues.

Chicago to St. Louie, and down to New Orleans
Trouble has no trouble finding everywhere between
You might be in the country, you might be in the town
Might be 'cause the news just came: the factory's shutting down.

Up in West Virginia, in the cold coal mines, they've got blues
Miles and miles of blues
From Buffalo to Baltimore, talk about hard times
They got blues
Miles and miles of blues.

There ain't just Kansas City or Memphis, Tennessee
Take the time and look around, I guarantee you['ll see
The blues are in Miami; the blues are in St. Paul
From dirt roads to the L.A. freeway, the blues'll find us all.

The good news is, there's music
To ease your worried mind
When you've got blues
Miles and miles of blues.

There's nothin' like a guitar
Cryin' in the night
When you've got blues
Miles and miles of blues.

Everywhere there's blues
Miles and miles of blues."

-Kate Campbell, "Miles of Blues"
