Nine Finger Blues

I can't play blues guitar.
I can't wash a pan.
I can't roll a meatball.
I only got one hand!

I can't make a ponytail.
I can't box.
I can't tie my shoes.
I can't pull up my socks!

I got the blues. It's sad, sad news.
I got the hand in a bandage, Big BooBoo! Nine Finger Blues.

I can't wash my right elbow.
I can barely get dressed.
I can't open a jar.
That's what got me into this mess!!

I got the blues. Oh yeah, it's bad news.
I got the hand-splinted, bandaged-up, mighty sore, really stiff,
cranky ass, cry baby, Big BooBoo, Nine Finger Blues.

sounds great will work it with a e-7th blues riff, but you might have to sing it, thinkin' in a Janis Joplin style....maybe Bonnie Raitt but you are more of a Janis girl to me.

But you got rhythm, baby, and you got me jiving along in my kitchen.

Sorry about your finger.

I've lived with only one working hand for a while. No fun!
