From the recording Blues In My Soul

A favorite Blues artist of mine, Johnny Shines, has a line in a song that says "My life on earth ain't been nothin' but a solid mess! I can't wait to get to heaven so I can lay down by the fire and rest" The first time I heard him sing that I thought man I know how he feels!!
I had already written Blues In My Soul but that line summed up exactly how I was feeling at the time. It seemed like the perfect place to insert that great line! There has been times when it seems like I just can't make it another day! On the bright side that's my favorite time to grab my guitar and pray! I often talk to God with my guitar in my hand. I'm not trying to write a song I'm just pluckin' the strings and usually complaining, but by the end I can see how the Lord spoke to me! Giving me a more eternal perspective. Our troubles here will soon be over no matter how great or small! Then for those of us that have chose to make Jesus Lord of our life it's eternity with our Savior! No more tears and no more sorrow!!
Then after that there's a song. Hopefully a song that will encourage others their not alone, and that Jesus is the way the truth and the life! He loves us, died for us and is preparing a place for us!! If you haven't yet eccepted Jesus as your Lord & Savior we pray you will!!!

Lyrics

I got the Blues in my fingers
Got the Blues in my soul
the blues in my spirit man like nobody knows
I got the Blues
Lord Knows I've got the Blues
I got the Blues in my fingers
Lord you know I got the Blues in my soul
Well I laid down last night
I closed my eyes to pray
Said Lord have mercy take my Blues away
I've got the Blues
Lord knows I've got the Blues
I got the Blues in my fingers
Lord you know I got the Blues in my soul
Well I got the Blues in my fingers
The blues in my soul
The Blues in my spirit man like nobody knows
I got the Blues
Lord knows I got the blues
I got the blues in my fingers
Lord you know I got the Blues in my soul
You know my life on this earth
Ain't been nothin' but a solid mess
You know My life on this earth
Ain't been nothin' but a solid mess
I can't wait to get to heaven
Gonna lay down by the fire and rest
I heard everyday is Sunday on the other side
I heard everyday is Sunday on the other side
I can't wait to get to heaven
Gonna lay down by the fire and rest
