Intro riff
Fergus sings the Blues in bars of twelve or less
I`m a stranger to the land to this wilderness


Gm                  F 
All things are possible
Bb                          F
But happen less and less
Gm             F
This is my country
Bb                 Cm7
These are my reasons

 
F       Bb    Eb              F
`Cause I      look in the mirror
F    Bb    Eb                     F
And it     throws back the question
F     Bb   Eb            F  
And I      whisper in words
F     Bb   Eb  F   
That beg an   answer
F    Bb   Eb Bb*        Eb  Bb*   Eb  Bb*   F 
Tell me   can        this white man sing the    blues

Intro Riff
Homesick James My biggest influence
Tell me why James and Bobby Purify

I`m lost in music sweet soul music
This is my country these are my reasons

CHORUS

From the north coast to the uplands
Stay on the left side of the white lines
From the Campsies over Christmas
I still dream of Memphis

CHORUS

I got the blue blue world
And I see The blue blue sky
I got the blue blue ocean
In my blue eye
So tell me can this white man sing the blues
