http://www.allmusic.com/artist/ry-cooder-p3959 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ry_Cooder I met Lamar through the great connection of music here. He's got some major love for Mr. Ry Cooder, and ask me to please make him an interpretation for this great song..wish granted ;-) Thank you, Lamar, for allowing me the honour of interpreting my vision of this wonderful Ry Cooder classic...What I love most about the music...the great connection and universal language...What I love about YouTube...a place to show our love for it..;-) This song took me down memory lane with my daddy...he use to love to sing the gospels with the old quartet...he could sing base, he could sing tenor, he had great rhythm, could shake a leg...he and mom could jitter bug..ahhh sweet memories♥ I watched my daddy shine a many a pair of his shiny black shoes. "Get Rhythm" is the perfect tune in preparation for Lent...in the spirit of Mardi Gras and, the deep south culture..I really had a blast doing this..;-) LYRICS: written by: Johnny Cash and (to be continued) Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues Yes a jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine It'll shake all the trouble from your worried mind Get rhythm when you get the blues Little shoeshine boy never gets low down But he's got the dirtiest job in town Bendin' low at the peoples' feet On the windy corner of the dirty street Well, I asked him while he shined my shoes How'd he keep from gettin' the blues? He grinned as he raised his little head Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said "Get rhythm when you get the blues Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues It only costs a dime, just a nickel a shoe Does a million dollars worth of good for you Get rhythm when you get the blues [ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/johnny-cash-lyrics/get-rhythm-lyrics.html] Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues Yes a jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine It'll shake all the trouble from your worried mind Get rhythm when you get the blues" Well, I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy And I thought I was gonna jump for joy Slapped on the shoe polish left and right He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight He stopped once to wipe the sweat away I said you're a mighty little boy to be workin' that way He said "I like it" with a big wide grin He kept on a poppin' and he said again "Get rhythm when you get the blues Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones Get taps on your toes and get gone Get rhythm when you get the blues"
