Song Lyric Sunday 4/30/17 – Blue On Black

Consequences. An interesting topic for our weekly venture into the world of music for Song Lyric Sunday. Again, it’s such a broad topic but I think I have a great song that fits the theme and is a song I perform regularly at open mic or at karaoke so needless to say it’s one of my favorite songs (of course, I have a lot of those admittedly LOL).

Kenny Wayne Shepherd is one of those relatively unknown artists but he does have some really great music. I imagine he’s probably regarded as a one-hit wonder and this song would be considered his one hit and when I thought of consequences this was the very first song that came to mind for me. I imagine the artist envisioned it as a lover leaving him but I think it can apply to a multitude of lost relationships; from damaged familial relationships to losing a long-time best friend.

Thus I present to you the song “Blue on Black” as performed by the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band and written by KWS, Mark Selby and Tia Sillers:

Night falls and I’m alone
Skin yeah chilled me to the bone
You turned and you ran
Oh yeah oh slipped, right from my hand

Hey, blue on black, tears on a river
Push on a shove it don’t mean much
Joker on jack, match on a fire
Cold on ice is a dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream doesn’t change a thing
Don’t bring you back
Blue on black oh yeah, blue on black

Blind oh, now I see
Truth, lies and in between
Wrong, can’t be undone
Oh slipped, from the tip of your tongue

Hey, blue on black, tears on a river
Push on a shove it don’t mean much
Joker on jack, match on a fire
Cold on ice is a dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream doesn’t change a thing
Doesn’t bring you back, yeah
Blue on black, oh blue on black, oh yeah

Blue on black, tears on a river
Push on a shove it don’t mean much
Joker on jack, match on a fire
Cold on ice is a dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream doesn’t change a thing
Don’t bring you back, blue on black, oh yeah
Blue on black

Hey, blue on black, tears on a river
Push on a shove it don’t mean much
Joker on jack, match on a fire
And cold on ice is a dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream doesn’t change a thing
Doesn’t bring you back
Blue on black, oh blue on black
Oh blue on black, oh blue on black

Hope you enjoyed. Also, I apologize in advance but I will probably be either absent entirely or at the very least late with my post for next week’s edition of Song Lyric Sunday as I will be on vacation and too busy to blog from Wednesday on thru the following Monday. Just giving you a heads-up in case you’re wondering where I went; I’ve not fallen off the edges of the earth, just too busy. Thanks for your understanding.
