White Man Singin' The Blues

This song is by Merle Haggard and appears on the album Presents His 30th Album (1974) and on the album Chicago Wind (2005).

The old man paid no mind to color
'Cause he knew that I'd been down and out
Old Joe said that I was a soul brother
The things I been singin' about

He liked how I played my old guitar
He'd sit down beside me to sing
Together we hummed out an old timy blues

Oh, we sing aside a railroad track
For people have nothing to lose
I'm a son of a gambler who's luck never came
And a white man singin' the blues

We both done a heap of hard livin'
And hard to describing in a song
But the blues was one thing we both understood
And the old man hummed right along

Oh, we sing aside a railroad track
For people have nothing to lose
I'm a son of a gambler who's luck never came
And a white man singin' the blues
