Rufus Got The Blues


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Had a blues riff and I was recording on my cheapo. acoustic thru a 58 and my dog Rufus started singing so I kept it and made the song from his point of view. .... just having some fun.

Rar rar rar rar rar rar rar rar rar rar….

My name is Rufus
And I’ve got the blues
Rar rar rar
Spent the evening
Taking the rough with the smooth
Rar rar rar

Had a scrap
With a mutt in the park
Rar rar rar
I ran away
And hid shakin’ in the dark

Ain’t looking for trouble
Ain’t looking for blame

I can hear you howlin’
And singing the blues
You know I gotta quit spending my nights
Drinkin’ doggie booze

I left my number
On all the trees
Hoping a sweet gal
Will be sniffin’ at me

But I need some vallum
To stop these shakes
My eyes are bugging out
All over the place

Don’t waist your time
Yellin' out my name
I’m far too busy sniffin’ a bum
And it’s doing the same

I lft my leg
And pee on a pole
Leavin’ my number
For this gal I know

Got them … Chihuahua blues man

Staggered home
And saw I was alone
From my night at the park
To this house that’s so dark

And when I went to my bowl
I didn’t have no bone
Should’ve stayed sniffin’
My friends in the dark
Instead of coming home

I keep strut’n down the road …

Can’t stop howlin’
Singing the blues
Too many night's now
That I’ve been on the loose
With the blues

My name is Rufus
And I’ve got the blues
Rar rar rar
Spent the evening
Taking the rough with the smooth
Rar rar rar

Had a scrap
With a mutt in the park
Rar rar rar
And I ran and hid
Just a shakin’ in the dark
Rar rar rar

I left my number
On all the trees
Rar rar rar
Hoping a sweet gal
Will be sniffin’ at me
Rar rar rar

But I need some vallum
To stop these shakes
Rar rar rar
My eyes are bugging out
All over the place

Sit boy sit … wanna cookie?

Rufus got the blues
Rufus looks cool, but I'm not sure he has a big future in singing the blues... Love the groove this sits in. The acoustic has a bright sound that works well for this song. Solid bass and drums. Amusing lyrics. Everyone's having fun here!

Rufus
Yeah, I thought of using auto tune on his voice but I got the feeling he wanted it to be natural.
Thanks Philip.

Rufus Got The Blues
Doggie booze is a downward spiral that has taken many a poor pooch. Cool track. Great fun. That guitar don't sound cheap to me. Why would it when in the master's hands.
