TEXAS BLUES DUES

Raised up in Texas, that’s where he found out ‘bout the blues.
I said he was raised up in Texas, that’s where he found out ‘bout the blues.
He gave us more than we expected and he taught us ‘bout the blues.

You stay broke, most all the time, barely eatin’
And at the Pawnshop all the time.

And live in Texas, that’s where you'll find out ‘bout the blues.
Ain’t nothin’ more respected than a man that’s paid his dues.

Way up in Chicago, Down in New Orleans,
Across Mississippi, everyone’s heard S.R.V.

Raised up in Texas, that’s where he found out ‘bout the blues.
I said he was raised up in Texas, that’s where he found out ‘bout the blues.

(Show us Stevie) Solo

He come from Texas, that’s where he found out ‘bout the blues
He come from Texas, (lordy mama), that’s where he found out ‘bout the blues.

Ain’t no one more respected, Ain’t no one more respected
Ain’t no one more respected, than the man who’s paid his dues.
