Get it while it's hot

I've been all over Europe
And across the sea
With each new place
It gets clearer to me
Week after week
On tour with my band
You don't have to speak
'Cause they all understand

The power of the blues
Hey, hey, the power of the blues
And that's good news
I'm talkin' about the power of the blues

Yes, it's just a few changes
That I won't deny
But if you think it's easy
You just give it a try
You know the truth
But you're afraid to say it
That it ain't what I play
It's the way that I play it

That's the power of the blues
Yes, the power of the blues
You'll change your views
When you hear the power of the blues

Now me and Lucille
We're gonna stop this war
I'm no politician
But I know the score
You can call me a hawk
Or maybe I'm a dove
But all we gotta do
Is shoot 'em full of love

With the power of the blues
Hey, the power of the blues
It's the thing to use
Talkin' about the power of the blues, yes I am

WINGFIELD, WILLIAM P.
