On a beautiful warm day, he decides to go outside, and sits himself down on the stoop. He takes out his blues harp, and plays some down home blues. Some of the passersby stop to watch him, and love what they are hearing. That makes him a very happy guy.
The air outside is hot
The air is stifling
The dogs are laying in the shade
The old man is sitting on the stoop
Playing the blues with his harmonic
The people who pass by are smiling
The old man knows it all good
on the couch
I’ve never missed a gig yet. Music makes people happy, and that’s why I go on doing it – I like to see everybody smile.
– Buddy Guy
