Heart of the Blues Key of Am / 108 bpm / Time 4:26 Too many tears we’ve cried There is no place to hide In the darkness is there nothing really new All alone now in the Heart of the Blues No way to turn around This emptiness is found Deep inside is there anything that’s true Can our love survive in the Heart of the Blues This pain won’t wash away Fall deeper everyday Is there nothing that we can ever do So long now in the Heart of the Blues Tremble now at the sight We both know it ain’t right Try to find anyway through And we’re drowning in the heart of the blues In the heart of the blues

Battle of Jessie Key of E / 98 bpm / Time: 3:14 Way down in the holler on the bad side of town Jessie knew someday they’d take his life So he ran hard every night, trying to stay in the light No they won’t break him down without a fight His daddy was a gambler His momma played the blues They never really taught him wrong from right But Jessie was a good man doing everything he can No he won’t be broken down without a fight As the story happens on one hot summer night The chips were down and Jessie had a gun Now the bloodstains won’t wash away Jesse finally had his day and now our man Is really on the run The law tried to find him but they couldn’t find a trace For many years it seemed that he has won Till one day he came to town and the sheriff tried to Shoot him down, he was wounded in the arm by the sheriff’s gun. He held his hand up to the sky and shouted lord why o why Did you forsake me after all the good I done No there ain’t no way I die tonight I’m rising up to fight the fight Ain’t no way the devil wins cause it ain’t right The moral of the story is to stay out of the street Cause trouble always finds a way to win Yes Jessie was a good man, doing everything he can but Trouble always finds a way to win Yeah the devil always finds a way to win Yeah yeah trouble always finds a way to win
