Very nice writing. I’m glad things are getting better for you.

This reminds me of the Henry Hipkins song, “That’s How I Learned to Sing the Blues.”

That’s How I Learned to Sing the Blues

(Henry Hipkens)

People ask me when I sing the blues

How did I learn what method did I use

Though I will tell you how my friend

It’s not a way I’d recommend

You find a good love and treat her wrong

Then be sorry ‘bout it when she’s gone

You’ll say ‘come back’ she’ll refuse

That’s how I learned to sing the blues

Now the people pay to hear my song

The mournful melody of love gone wrong

And while the blues has brought me wealth

I find I can’t sing nothin’ else

I lost a love I can’t replace

With every line I sing I see her face

And though it’s not the way I’d choose

That’s how I learned to sing the blues

And at night

When other lovers hold their true loves tight

I hold another but it’s just not right

It’s only memories I crave

And in the dawn

Just for a moment I forget you’re gone

And reach to hold you in the cold grey light

But only find the feeling

That I’ll use to sing these blues

My advice while you have a choice

Is do some exercises for your voice

When you sing cry every word

Flat the seventh and the third

And you can sound as if you’re sad

Don’t be a fool and treat your good love bad

You will gain less than you lose

That’s how I learned to sing the blues

That’s how I learned to sing

That’s how I learned to sing

That’s how I learned to sing the blues
