MY JESUS MERCY FOR AL CAPONE

I AM A CRIMINAL IT CAME FREE IN MY GENES
I AM A CRIMINAL IT CAME FREE IN MY GENES
BROKE BOY FROM BROOKLYN GREW UP TO OWN
CHICAGO’S STREETS BOTH SWEET AND MEAN
BEIN’ SWEET AND MEAN
***MY JESUS MERCY MY JESUS MERCY
MY JESUS WE PRAY MY JESUS WE PRAY
FOR BROTHER AL CAPONE
I AM A CRIMINAL IT CAME FREE IN MY GENES
I AM A CRIMINAL IT CAME FREE IN MY GENES
BOOTLEGGIN’ LIQUOR AND PROSTITUTION
PUT ME IN ALCATRAZ OH AND THAT TAX THING
THAT TAX THING ( REPEAT *** GUITAR SOLO )
I WAS A CRIMINAL IT CAME IN MY GENES
I WAS A CRIMINAL IT CAME IN MY GENES
DON’T REMEMBER THE GUYS I KILLED
DIED SCRAMBLED FROM SYPHILIS
BUT NOT IN JAIL TUCKED IN MY OWN BED
*****MY JESUS HAD MERCY MY JESUS HAD MERCY
OUR PRAYERS HELD SWAY OUR PRAYERS HELD SWAY
( 2ND GUITAR SOLO REPEAT ***** )

Ooze the blues :-)
Interesting lyric topic and blues structure, Peter. The thing that shines for me is the musicianship. The organ and the guitar work just ooze an authentic blues vibes. The lead breaks are fantastic. Glad I stopped by. Regards, Peter.

stuff. Al Capone was an evil, degenerate man. I'm not sure he'd get much sympathy, anywhere. I wonder who decided to carve that on his tombstone.
The song is bouncy and infectious.

Capone
Terrific vocal performance. Lots of personality. I also like the way you mucked up the usual pattern. Nice. Dig that organ. Good theme and lyrics. Biographical blues.
