Ukulele ‘Catfish’ Keith — Image by kenne

Jazzy tunes from the streets wafting through the window
Make me dance, fill my head with warm mist
Rhythmic drum beats and bold, steady percussion sound
Get my mind in a tangled up twist

All these tunes in a mix with some everyday sounds
Makes the city a musical place
Sounds of traffic and shouting and talking and walking
Intermingled with alto and bass

I believe that ignorance is the root of all evil.
And that no one knows the truth.

New Orleans Bourbon Street--4 Art blog framedNew Orleans Street Band (December 29, 1999) — Images by kenne

Shading dark eyes, grinds out the melody,
Pulverized music! — In his garb and air
I read of sunnier lands beyond the sea,
And, dreaming, wander to a fairer clime,
Recalled, too suddenly, by — ‘If you please, a dime!
