The Rhythm Room

There was a place
Near downtown
Always rock’n
Embracing the sound
Echoing in time
Without a clock —
Down in old H-Town.

More than a room,
The grandest of joints
Rhythm was its fame
So no need to point
For people all knew
Blues was its claim —
Down in old H-Town.

Music recorded live
By Smoke’n Joe
For everyone to hear
From far and wide —
Blues lovers know
The music lives on
Down in old H-Town.

The room’s now gone
Replaced by condos
So too the sound
Losing out to big doe —
Rhythm in the blues
Forever to be found
Down in old H-Town.

  1. Loved the Rhythm Room down on Washington Ave. Saw Rudy T, coach of the Rockets, there a few times. Like the Reddi Room, a hotbed of Houston talent and charm.
