Blues Fell On My Head (C. Amigo)
Blues fell down on my head
in my kitchen
On my bed
Blues fell down like tears
on my garden
in my fears
Blues fell down like rain
On my pain

Native Son (music and lyrics by C. Amigo)
My woes keep me down again
My woes keep me down again
Gringo man don’t you know me?
I’m the rising son
I’m the native son
Lord show mercy let me fly
have mercy let me die
if I can’t sing the song
of a mockingbird
or a whipporwhil
or a thrush
or an eagle
then let me fly
The meaning of the blues is centrally realized in performance because that musical action defiantly claims “I’m still here and will overcome” the conditions referenced in the text and sound. The blues are a living, breathing African American art form. Thanks Amiri Baraka and James H. Cone for the insight.
