Squeeze My Lemon - A Collection of Classic Blues Lyrics

by Randy Poe

“They call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday's just as bad/Wednesday's worse, and Thursday's also sad.” There's a lot more to the blues than three chords played on an old beat-up guitar. Squeeze My Lemon is a collection of some of the best blues lines ever recorded. From birth (“Born under a bad sign/I've been down since I began to crawl”) to death (“Everybody wants to go to heaven/But nobody wants to die”) and everything in between, this volume quotes classic blues phrases by ssongwriter/artists B.B. King, Bessie Smith, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, Robert JJohnson and many, many others. Compiled by award-winning author/Grammy-nominated record producer Randy Poe, Squeeze My Lemon: A Collection of Classic Blues Lyriics features classic photos of many leading blues artists. A great gift book, it is highly entertaining not only for blues lovers, but for anyone who appreciatees great lyrics. Categorized by subject matter (Love – Or the Lack Thereof, Bluess & Booze, Blues Behind Bars, Make Mine a Double Entendre, etc.), Squeeze My Lemmon is a book you'll return to – and quote from – again and again.
