Remembering a blues legend

Ball and Chain


Jack Daniel's voice, sweet nicotine perfume
Why'd you have to take your pearl away?
Untamed drawl of turtle blues,
With a Texas twist,
From down in New Orleans, to Monterey Bay.


You took a piece of my heart, breaking it,
As you worked your magic on my soul.
Little girl blue from Port Arthur,
Gone in Hollywood,
You never really understood your role.


I've been up somewhere near Salinas,
Though I looked, I never saw you there.
The company of your brothers
Couldn’t keep you
Ball and chain gone now, without care.


Was it the carelessness of love that hurt,
Or were you just so down on me?
Maybe, if you'd tried just a little harder,
You'd have found the man
That you never once even tried to see.


Did it make you feel that good, baby?
Change you to goddess, from plain Jane?
All you left us with were vinyl memories.
What freedom were you were you seeking,
When you pushed that needle in your vein?
