The Great Blues Sea

Words: Bernie Gilbert and Brook Schoenfield

Music: Brook Schoenfield © 2003

Sitting in my room,

Play these blues

From morn ?til night

Shuffle and lope,

You gotta hope

Things will turn out all right

Life is pain,

Life is joy

It's salt and it's sweet

Feel the groove,

The rock, the roll

Got to pull you on to your feet


Ridin' on that big blue boat

Rockin' on that strong blue river

Reaching for the great blue sea

The blues takes you through the pain

To what you need

The heart beat,

Let your heart beat

To that laid back pulse with no fear

The waves break,

We dig deep

Laughing through all of our tears



It's what you need

The great blues sea

Will set you free

The great blues sea
