FCS Daily Music Video – ‘ I’m a Blues Man’ Magic Slim and the Tear Drops

Morris Holt (August 7, 1937 – February 21, 2013), known as Magic Slim, was an American blues singer and guitarist. Born at Torrance, near GrenadaMississippi, the son of sharecroppers, he followed blues greats such as Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf to Chicago, developing his own place in the Chicago blues scene.

With his band the Teardrops they played in the dim, smoke-filled juke joints popular in Chicago in the 1970s on bandstands barely large enough to hold the musicians.

Lyrics below

I got the Blues, deep down in my heart…
I love you baby, please don´t let us apart
I´m gonna play the blues
Play the blues from my heart…

It´s out of me, baby can´t you see
I´m gonna play the blues baby
Deep down in my heart, you see..
I´m gonna play the blues
Play the blues from my heart. …..
I got the blues, deep down in my heart..
I love you baby, please don´t let us apart
I´m gonna play the blues
Play the blues from my heart…
(Yeah, You Know That!!)
