  1. Jackie Was Cry'n

From the recording Dukkha's Nemesis

   
"Mommy, I wrote a blues song," said 7 year old Ali.

And she had.
Indeed, she had.

JACKIE WAS CRY'N

IT ALL STARTED WHEN
JACKIE WAS CRY'N
 'N I WAS DOIN THE BLUES
  I WAS DOIN THE BLUES
  DOIN THE BLUES
MAMA WAS BUSY IN THE KITCHEN
'N I WAS DOIN THE BLUES

 
JACKIE WAS CRY'N
MAMA WAS SAD
PAPA WAS GONE
SISTER WAS MAD
SHE WAS OUT CRUISIN WITH HER BOYFRIEND
ALL NIGHT LONG
I JUST KEPT PLAYIN ON MY GUITAR
SINGING A SONG (it went like)
 
JACKIE WAS CRY'N (oh she was cry'n)
MAMA GONNA SIGH WHEN SHE HEARS HER BABY CRY (Cry'n)
JACKIE WAS CRY’N!
RIVER GONNA FLOW WHEN SHE LET THE TEARS GO
 
BROTHER WAS FIGHTIN FOR HIS LIFE
AT THE LOCAL RING
BUT LORD KNOWS BROTHER’S GETTING OLDER
BARELY MAKIN A LIVING
SISTER WAS CRUISIN – ALL NIGHT LONG
I JUST KEPT PLAYIN ON MY GUITAR, SINGIN A SONG (it went like)
 
JACKIE WAS CRY’N…(Oh, she was cry'n)
MAMA GONNA SIGH WHEN SHE HEARS HER BABY CRY (Oh, she was cry'n)
RIVER GONNA FLOW WHEN SHE LET THE TEARS GO
JACKIE WAS CRY’N 

LORD KNOWS PAPA NEVER DID MUCH FOR US, ANYWAY
OUT ON THE TOWN AND HE NEVER COME AROUND
WHEN THERE WAS BILLS TO PAY
BANKER KEPT KNOCKIN AT THE DOOR
TO GET BACK WHAT HE OWN
MAMA TURNED OUT THE LIGHT, SHE CRAWLIN ON THE FLOOR
SHE CAN’T PAY THE LOAN
 
SISTER WAS CRUISIN – ALL NIGHT LONG
I JUST KEPT PLAYIN ON MY GUITAR, SINGIN A SONG (it went like)
 
JACKIE WAS CRY'N (Oh, she was cryin)
MAMA GONNA SIGH WHEN SHE HEARS HER BABY CRY
(Jackie was cryin)
JACKIE WAS CRY'N
RIVER GONNA FLOW WHEN SHE LET THE TEARS GO, go, go, GO!
 
mama was busy in the kitchen
(jackie was cry'n) 
…  ‘JACKIE! MAMA! PAPA! SISTER!’
