Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Another song I wrote taken from band practise.Warts and all.

I like showing how songs progress...  keeping a record from the practise.
Value comments as they are all helpful.

 

 

SATAN BLUES
1
In the city dark and grey
The devils spins his web and he catches his prey
He will take anyone, anyone he can find
Once he’s got a hold of them take over their mind
Cause He’s a crafty old man son mean in side
You never no next where he’s going to hide
2
Take the young girl with nowhere to go
She’s takin a walk down London’s Soho
The next minute the next thing ya know
She’s taking lead part in a peep show
For fifty quid she'll give ya doos..
While she suffers from those Satan Blues
REF:
Switch of the lights Switch of the city lights
Turn on the light turn on the Spiritual Light
Switch of the lights Switch of the city lights
Turn on your light.
3
Take the young man he looks so neat
Always got a different girl under the sheet
In the day he
sits in his local pub
At night he goes down to his favorite night club
He’s a smooth talk knows all of the tricks
Not smart enough to know that the devils providing his chicks
4
Another young man he’s caught in the trap
Cause everyday he needs to go and 
get more smack.
He’s stealing money to pay for his junk
Which he buys down the street from his local punk
Sense’s now going he starts to stutter.
The next thing ya know he dead in the gutter
REF:
Switch of the lights Switch of the city lights
Turn on the 
light turn on the Spiritual Light
Switch of the lights Switch of the city lights
Turn on your light.
5
What’s this got to do with me I hear you say?
Well if you don’t know the Lord you’re going the same 
way
You see I’m not talking about petty pretense
Cause you can’t sit on both sides of the fence
So make up your mind what you’re going to do
Cause at the moment the devils he’s got hold of you

end
Switch of the Lights Switch of the city lights
Turn on the Light turn on your Spiritual Light
Turn night to 
day turn to the Jesus way
Switch on Your light.
That’s it baby you got it right!!!

That was a cool blues jam - I really liked your vocal. I enjoyed the lyrics as well. The mix sounded good to me - sounds like you have a good band behind you.

@Douglas Kirby  Thanks for taking the time to listen.
I wasn't working on the mix... as its just from band practise.
I will record it properly soon.

You and your group have really captured the sound of the electric Blues.  The band is doing a great job on the instrumentation and your vocals are excellent.  Love that live sound.  How about doing a tour in Florida   --- I would like to see you live!
