"sou mais branco de nome que de pele", teria dito um dia charles douglas musselwhite. 
e, para um branco nascido no mississippi que se tornou uma das lendas da harmónica azul,
muito provavelmente a frase de charlie é mais certa do que parece...



the blues overtook me when i was a little child
you know fast women and whisky made this southern boy wild

when i was a kid, early on my own
i took the highway to be on my own
the blues overtook me when i was a little child
you know fast women and whisky made this lonesome boy wild

it's dark and cloudy i believe it's gonna rain
makes me wanna hear my baby call my name
the blues overtook me when i was a little child
you know fast women and whisky made this poor boy wild

when you get in trouble everything is down on you
the blues is overtaking you and pull you through
well the blues overtook me when i was a little child
you know fast women and whisky made this lonesome boy wild

laying down my suitcase, hang up my trunk
i ain't be drinkin' since the blues made me drunk
the blues overtook me when i was a little child
you know fast women and whisky made this poor boy wild

you might run and tryin' to escape
but the blues will overtake you one over a rainy day
the blues overtook me when i was a little child
you know fast women and whisky made this southern boy wild
