It must be every Blues fan's dream to ride Route 66....here's a virtual tour of the famous road, enjoy the ride but watch out for the Cops!
I debuted this song at BSA in October, it will be the first track on my forthcoming album "Folk of Oak" in 2014.

Guitar - C&T 1
Drums - Roland TD-12 V-Drums set on Acoustic.
Bass - Hofner violin bass copy.
Boss SE-70, Mackie PROFX-12 Mixing desk.

PLAY LOUD!

DRIVING DOWN ROUTE 66
CHECKIN' OUT THOSE RADIO LICKS
I'M IN A RAINSTORM COVERIN' ME
MY BLUES MUSIC WILL SET ME FREE.

CHORUS - SOMETHING SOMEBODY SAID
HER WORDS GO ROUND MY HEAD
IT'S RAININ' BLUES
IT'S RAININ' BLUES

I'M DRIVIN' IN THE DARK
GOTTA FIND A PLACE TO PARK
THAT WOMAN BROKE MY HEART
FIND A NEW TOWN, MAKE A NEW START

CHORUS - SOMETHING SOMEBODY SAID
THOSE SONGS GO ROUND MY HEAD
IT'S RAININ' BLUES
IT'S RAININ' BLUES

SHE TOOK MY MONEY, MY RECORDS TOO
I'M LEFT HERE WITH MY RADIO TUNED
STILL GOT, MY CHEVROLET
GONNA FIND A NEW PLACE TO STAY

CHORUS - SOMETHING SOMEBODY SAID
THE BLUES ARE IN MY HEAD
IT'S RAININ' BLUES
IT'S RAININ' BLUES

TO SAINT LOUIS, I'M GONNA GO
SPRINGFIELD, AMARILLO
OKLAHOMA, SAN BERNADINO,
L.A. THE END OF THE ROAD.

CHORUS - SOMETHING SOMEBODY SAID
THE BLUES ARE IN MY HEAD
IT'S RAININ' BLUES
IT'S RAININ' BLUES
