White Boy Blues

This song is by The Bottle Rockets and appears on the album Brand New Year (1999).

He's got the best tweed Bassman you ever saw
He's a down home, lowdown attorney-at-law
He knows his licks so don't you laugh
His beat-to-shit Strat cost ten grand and a half

Have you heard the news, he got the white boy blues
Got himself a guitar that paid its dues
He'll jam a little when he gets off work tonight
Singin' hey, hey, the blues is alright

The boys from the office are really impressed
When he straps that Strat across his chest
Stevie Ray videos, part one and two
He studied 'em both, he knows what to do

Have you heard the news, he got the white boy blues
Got himself a guitar that paid its dues
Jam a little when he gets off work tonight
Singin' hey, hey, the blues is alright
Singin' hey, hey, the blues is alright

He's a member of the local blues society
Tryin' to work his way up to a twelve gauge E

His wife's so proud of how he made it sing
He drank too much but that's a bluesy thing

Wipes off the neck and what's left of the chrome
Throws it in the turbo Volvo and heads for home
Have you heard the news, he got the white boy blues
Got himself a guitar that paid its dues
He'll jam a little when he gets off work tonight
Singin' hey, hey, the blues is alright
