The Blues belong to Black Folks

The Blues belong to black folks.

The Blues belong to the ones that birthed them

who were burned and buried with them

What do you know about the blues white girl?

What you think you know about the blues white boy?

What you thinking you feel is a feeling dug out

from deeper than you’d never want to go.

The Blues belong to black folks.

Leave them go.
