Blues Brother Soul Sister (or where I go to escape)

Poetry By: dibbledabble

Just a little verse to show a lighter side of me. Never attempted a rhyme before. A little shakey I think, but it's just for fun

Feed me soul when I have the blues

Respect! Aretha

You fill my empty ether

James Brown,

'I feel good'

You knew that I would

Gladys Knight

Your midnight train

Soothes my pain

Percy Sledge

Your gospel edge

'Wraps me in Warm and Tender Love'

Mr Charles

Your fat Hammond chords

Have me tapping the board

'That's what I'd say!'

Al Green

I dig your scene

When the Temptations play

Melodies sway

Miss Moore,

Misty Blue

Pulls at my heart string true

'I can't get you off of my mind'


I sit with you on the dock of the bay

Sink into your words as I lay.

Wilson Pickett

Horns that blow

Make your music flow

'In The Midnight Hour.'

Miss Peebles

You tear my play house down

With your bitter sweet soul sound

Ben E King

With your harmonies sing

And 'Stand By Me'


When I am sad you make my heart glad

'Signed Sealed and Delivered'

Your blindness a gift

That heals my rift

Feed me blues so I can feel my soul


Not so old and fuddy

Your Mojo works on me!

John Lee moan and groan

I am hooked

on your dulcet tone.


You're the man

Diddle you know that?

Old man Johnson

You strum so well

Your sad sorry to tell

Sonny Boy

Mr Williamson I get your ploy

Harmonica in hand.

You 'Help Me' to another land

Johnny Winter

There ain't no 'shame on you'

Your upbeat gift high tempo blue

Mick and the Mac

You take me fleetingly back

'Need Your Love So Bad'

Feeling lonely and sad

Can't ignore Led Zeppelin

To pure blues fans they are a sin

But they 'Shook Me' within


I Shot The Sheriff, Crossroads

Just two of your fine odes

Listen, close my eyes stretched out on the floor

And I am 'Knocking on Heavens Door'

When I am down and low

There is only one place to go.

Soul Sister, Blues Brother

Could there ever be another.
