Lyrics: I've got to leave here, I've got to find someplace to go
I've got to leave here, I've got to find someplace to go
because the way things are happening here now I don't feel welcome here no more.
Going to get up in the morning, pack up my clothes and shoes
You might think I'm joking when I tell you I'm going to Newport News
I got the Blues, ohh let me tell you I have the Blues
I'm a guy you can't excuse, ohh let me tell you I have the Blues

Begin tasty guitar solo 🎸 followed by awesome Hammond Organ solo🎹🎹😎

I tell all you working men go home a little before time
Then you catch your woman getting down wrong
Like I caught mine
That's what gave me the Blues
Ohh let me tell you I have the Blues
I'm a guy you can't excuse, ohh let me tell you I got the
BLUE OH OH OHHH BLUES

Myers was born in Laurel, Mississippi. He acquired juvenile cataracts at age seven and was left legally blind for the rest of his life, despite corrective surgery.] He could make out shapes and shadows, but could not read print at all; he was taught Braille.

He acquired an interest in music while a schoolboy in Jackson, Mississippi, and became skilled enough at playing the trumpet and drums that he received a nondegree scholarship from the American Conservatory of Music (formerly the American Conservatory School of Music) in Chicago. Myers attended school by day and at night frequented the nightclubs of the South Side.

There he met and was sitting in with Jimmy Rogers, Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Little Walter, Hound Dog Taylor, Robert Lockwood, Jr., and Elmore James. Myers played drums with Elmore James on a fairly steady basis from 1952 until James's death, in 1963, and is credited on many of James's historic recordings for Chess Records. In 1956, Myers wrote and recorded what was to be his most famous single, "Sleeping in the Ground", a song that has been covered by Blind Faith, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, and many other blues artists; it was also featured on Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour show on "Sleep".

Don’s Tunes is about the music. It’s about the sound. It’s about the real thing.

I wonder if it ever occurred to him when he sang this song that his song will be heard 41 years after by an Iraqi girl half across the world and she would just fall in love with it .
Thank you for sharing such a masterpiece ❤️
