Lyrics
The Blues overtook me Charlie Musselwhite G mouth harp C

The Blues overtook me
When I was a little child :I
You know fast women and whisky
Made this southern boy wild

When I was a kid Early on my own
I took the highway To be on my own

The Blues overtook me
When I was a little child :
You know fast women and whisky
Made this lonesome boy wild

Mouth Harp Solo 2 Times

It's dark and cloudy I believe it's gonna rain
Makes me wonna hear my baby
Call my name

The Blues overtook me
When I was a little child
You know fast women and whisky
Made this poor boy wild

When you get in Trouble everything is down on you
The blues is overtaking and pull you through

Well the blues overtook me
When I was a little child
You know fast women and whisky
Made this lonesome boy wild

Sologitarre 2 times / Mouth harp

Laying down my suitcase Hang up my trunk
I ain't be drinkin' Since the blues made me drunk

The Blues overtook me
When I was a little child
You know fast women and whisky
Made this poor boy wild

You might run And tryin' to escape
But the blues will overtake you
One over a rainy day

The Blues .....
Solo Harp.
