about

I think that my favorite genre to actually play is the Blues. I guess you could say I am a Blues man in my heart. I have been writing in many genres my whole life, just trying to create great songs, but lately I have felt that it was time to get back to my roots, "The Blues" so here's my quintessential Blues song for your listening pleasure. It's a straight 12 bar blues with everything a blues artist would want to find in a blues song. Classic references, soulful performance, blues harp and lead guitar and lyrics that encompass all the great blues themes.
I hope you enjoy it.

lyrics

Back to the Blues
By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) © Copyright 2012

I'm feeling down and dirty
I want to hang my head and cry
I'm needin' my prescription
to ease my troubled mind

Can't ignore what I'm feelin'
that would make me a fool
there's only one solution
Gotta' Get Back to the Blues

this life that I am living
is filled with shades of gray
Every lesson in my life
I learned the hard way

I'm standin' at the crossroads
which way will I choose
goin' 80 miles an hour
Gonna' Get Back to the Blues

feelin' bad can feel so good
feelin wrong can feel so right
feelin' sad aint always bad
gets me thru the night

there's 3 sides to every story
yours, mine and the truth
there's an answer to my question
Gotta' Get Back to the Blues

Bridge:
bottom line feelin' fine
aint all it's cracked up to be
cause feeling blue, can get you thru
it's always worked for me
gonna let myself go, don't you know
time to set myself free
getting myself back to the blues
is where I wanna be

Gotta' Get Back to the Blues
Gotta' Get Back to the Blues

That's where I wanna be
