Jimmy Bang No Shoe Blues

JIMMY BANG’S NO SHOE BLUES (Alternate Version)*

I’ve given up my cigarettes and whisky too
I’ve given up my cigarettes and whisky too
for pain, painkillers, pets and you.

You know why I get mad, you know
why I get sad; but I’ve stopped throwing
tantrums, or dishes – that’s dumb.

Barely have patience for loud rock n roll – and   these blues
Barely have patience for loud rock n roll – and these blues
I was raised No! never to need any NO! no rock n roll shoes – lucky me!

Size 15

Because I can crank the volume rockin in my wheelchair
So I can crank the volume rockin in my wheelchair
Hard enough loud enough to get through this nightmare.

No shoes,
No shoes – Jimmy my my,
you’re waking up Naked
with the No Shoe Blues!
