Breathtaking

Listening to the whine of that old blues harp,

oh you play so well, my brother

So much heart & so much soul,

When one tune ends

I can’t wait for another

You make it sound so bittersweet

Get people rising to their feet

Dancing so happy & free

Your playing really is

breathtaking to me

Mother Maybelle (A Poetic Tribute)

Such a talent, Mother Maybelle

That’s all that I can say,

it was raw and unpolished,

but you know what?

That’s okay

there’s such resounding beauty

in each instrument,

and every note I heard her play

By: J.N.R Dutton

Mother Maybelle was gone long before I came along,

but her talent & her songs are a beautiful legacy.

I am glad for recording technology preserving such treasure.

Dear Eric (Revisited)

Eric, if you were reading this I’d like to say,

I’m a bigger fan now than I was

even just yesterday

The way you tell a story, brother,

it just keeps blowing me away

every time I think I’ve heard your best

you top it & prove me wrong

As long as you keep sharing, man,

I’ll forever sing along

By: J.N.R Dutton
