“The blues is alright to have. Your blues shines a big spotlight on your enemy and shows you all of the mess of trouble that he caused by robbing you. You are in a fight and the blues is a weapon that you use to tell your people what all is wrong. This is why your own kind of music is a deadly weapon. It gives you the chance to speak your mind, blow your top, flip your lid, shoot off at your mouth, and to sing into music the words of the fight thats going on in your mind. Your enemy is going to try and drown your music out with his own brand of music which says, “Everythings fine”, “Don’t Worry”, “I’m ragged and hungry, can’t get money, can’t live one tenth of the life I know i ought to, but I ain’t complanin! I’m happy! I got my road! I got my hill! my tree! my grass! My sky! I don’t want to fight no rackateer! I’m fine! Lonesome, empty, miserable,Starving, in debt, beat down, held down, walked on, steped on, but fine! I feel just fine!” (This is the title of the song your enemy wants you to sing) His radio stations blow and blare this load of crap and manure out 24hrs out of every day, yes, trying to beat it into your head that everything is fine, fine But you still have your blues. you haven’t lost them yet. Your blues roll around in you like the seven seas, and your tunes and words blow in like the four winds, and you hear in the dark alleys and slums, ratting buildings, rotting fields, you hear your own blues coming on and coming on.” -Woody Guthrie
