Got Those Guitar Thumping Blues (lyrical poetry about the Blues)

Updated on July 10, 2016
Guitar Thumping Blues...
Guitar Thumping Blues...


When that big yellow moon comes out at night, to me it's such a beautiful sight,

Spent the whole day working hard, pushing hand trucks down in an old brick yard.

Got fat blisters on both of my hands, the kind only a working man understands,

Then lost all my money, dropped my guard, I laid down that wrong poker card.

Refrain:

I got those guitar thumping Blues, down in the dumps kinda blues,

When you lose all you cash playing poker, gave it all to some joker,

My Brother, you get those old Guitar thumping, Guitar thumping kinda Blues.

Worked hard in that old brick yard...
Worked hard in that old brick yard...


Start a new week all over, tomorrow morning, my boss done gave me a threat, a warning.

Said don't be such a fool, pay yo bills, follow every rule, or you'll soon be in mourning.

I told him just give me one more chance, this can't be my last dance, I'd do much better,

Then he caught me over out back, sipping a little Jack, then I got my little pink slip letter.


Refrain: I got those guitar thumping blues, down in the dumps, kinda blues,

When you lose all your cash playing poker, give it all to some joker,

My brother, you've got, got those old guitar thumping, guitar thumping kinda Blues.



close the shutters...don't want to face the day..
close the shutters...don't want to face the day..


Caught a ride on that old Dog, was sleeping like a log, my whole trip back home,

Went back to work the very next day, sorry I went away, and no more shall roam.

My momma and my dad, were looking kinda sad, got a letter from my Uncle Sam,

Guess I'll learn my lesson well, stay away from that gambling spell, go on the lam.


Refrain: I've got those guitar thumping, down in the dumps, kinda blues,

When you lose all your cash playing poker, give it all to some joker,

My brother, you've got, got those old guitar thumping, guitar thumping, kinda Blues.


ot those guitar thumping kinda blues...
ot those guitar thumping kinda blues...


The army took a toll on me, broke my arm, got a busted knee, still kept me there,

Gave me a job behind a desk, my typing was always a mess, no excuses to spare,

Then one day returned to the farm, safe and sound, back home without any harm,

Picked up my guitar right away, still playing to this day, avoiding work's the charm.


Refrain:

I got those guitar thumping, guitar thumping, kind of down in the dumps, blues,

When you lose all your cash playing poker, give it all to some joker,

My brother, you've got, got those old guitar thumping, guitar thumping, kinda blues.
