Rhythm in My Blues – Author Damon E. Johnson


Woke up this morning in my right mind

I thank God for another day of sun

I’m leaving all of my worries behind

and trouble can find me on the run


With so much negativity in the air

at times it’s hard for me to breathe

Mama never said life was going to be fair

so I keep a trick or two up my sleeve


Sometimes you need skin as tough as leather

can’t worry about trying to please other folk

I barely have two nickels to rub together

but I’m a long way from being broke


Got some extra pep in my step these days

so I’m lacing up my running shoes

I’ve been blessed in so many ways, because

there’s a whole lot of rhythm in my blues
