12 Bar Blues(NewJersey)

I got the 12 bar blues
And I won't be playin The Garden 
no time soon
I said,
I got the 12 bar blues
And I won't be playin The Garden
 no time soon
Yeah, I shred like no one you ever knew
but i'm stuck here in Jersey, 
with them 12 bar blues

Well, I played a dive in Fairfield,
and a pickup joint in Wayne
Dodged a bottle out in Boonton
and a dart in Pompton Plains

I got the 12 bar blues
And I won't be playin The Garden
 no time soon

but i'm stuck here in Jersey,
 with them 12 bar blues

Thought I'd found a home in Holmdel
But they boo there worse than Wall
Saw a bullet playin Butler
Left for dead in Little Falls

I got the 12 bar blues
And I won't be playin The Garden 
no time soon

Solo

Yeah, I had a hobo fan in Hoboken
And a hot mama in Monroe
Played for nutjobs out in Nutley
And for no one in Bayonne

I got the 12 bar blues
And I won't be playin The Garden 
no time soon

Thanks Moosesong, yeah had to come up with a way to make it work. It should work for 12 bar blues, as well as a double hook lyrically.

I didn't even pick up the guitar to do it, just got in a blues mindset

It might play well here! I'll put a link down in the Chapter Thread.

Thanks Gary, I'm usually a guitar first guy but I knew this would be 1-4-5 variety with a blues turn around before each verse.

Came pretty easy.

Hi, I like the idea, but I'd like to see more blues, each bar needs blues imagery to me,this reminded me of a late friend, a great guitar player, he would tell me stories of things that happened like his axe getting stolen,breaking strings,beer spilled on his amp,didn't get payed,etc,I think if you juiced it up it would be stronger,
all the best,john.

Thanks. I got the idea talking to nightshift in the shoutbix.

Its tough to slip in 12 specific venues, in a short succinct 12 bar blues tune. Decided to make it work like this.

If I got more descriptive, it probably wouldn't be 12 bar blues musically, which was the idea. I see what you mean, but I think matching 12 bar blues musically, was important to the hook
