Show 49 - Sick With the Blues

Your browser does not support the audio tag. Perhaps the most poetic song ever written about being sick is St. Louis Jimmy Oden’s 1941 classic Goin’ Down Slow:I have had my fun if I don't get well no moreI have had my fun if I don't get well no moreMy health is failing me and I'm going down slowPlease write my mother, tell her the shape I'm inPlease write my mother, tell her the shape I'm inTell her to pray for me, forgive me for all my sinsTell her don't send no doctor, doctor can't do no goodTell her don't send no doctor, doctor can't do no goodIt's all my fault, didn't do the things I shouldOn the next train south, look for my clothes homeOn the next train south, look for my clothes homeIf you don't see my body, all you can do is moanMother please don't worry, this is all in my prayerMother please don't worry, this is all in my prayerJust say your son is gone, I'm out in this world somewhereOden expressed the sentiment that a doctor couldn’t help. Bukka White did the same thing
