“Corona Virus Blues”

Written by Don McAlister, 6/28/20 as a standard 12 bar blues song.

1. When this all got started

We didn’t have a clue

‘Bout how crazy things would get

And change everything we knew.

At first it didn’t seem that bad

The danger wasn’t clear

Then cases started popping up

West and East, and then right here.

And now it was a crisis

Affecting me and you

We got it bad

Corona Virus Blues!

CHORUS: We got a virus out to kill us

And it don’t care ‘bout who

And the only way to slow it down

Is to change the things we do.

We gotta stay six feet apart

And cover up our faces

Stay away from bars

Only eat at takeout places.

We’ve been hunkered down for months now

Watchin’ movies and the news

Yeah we got it bad

Corona Virus Blues!

2. Some folks got tired of hearing

What they should and shouldn’t do

And they protested and said

It was time to loosen rules.

Gov’nors felt the pressure

And opened up some places

But still asked us to distance

And cover up our faces

But it got out of hand again

Careless gatherings and booze

Infections started spiking up and

And now we’ve still got Corona Virus Blues!

(Repeat CHORUS and end)
