Smiled On A Blue Note

Despite all the controversies surrounding the band, probably my all time favorite musical group is Led Zeppelin.  I was reminded of this only just yesterday.

Led Zeppelin Tribute - No Quarter

Smiled On A Blue Note
by Michael Romani

Come to me so gently
Floated on a melody
Song filled with rhapsody
Sings to me completely

Quietly gliding down
On a clown prince's crown
Hints of the delta blues
Played out, paid out in my dues

Gardens filled to capacity
Lines borrowed with audacity
Until these became our own
Came a voice heard on the phone

Telling stories of my yesterday
Riff by riff, I learned to play
Dancing happily in the moonlight
I prayed my way into its delight

Searching for that blue note drama
Repeating in sequences of karma
That hide somewhere deep within the soul
Until they take their sonic stroll

Whatever lawyers might choose to say
Everyone who knows and feels the play
Knows that yer blues are not our own
And that levees break on mossy stones

Just as they do upon every blue note
Where we gathered round to first learn by rote
Until we knew the feel deeper than our souls
This is an open secret to all who play rock-n-roll
