Music With A Message.

 New Song to the tune of BOB DYLAN Song - BLIND WILLIE McTELL (1983).

New Song Title - ronnie THE ARTIST.

Verse 1,  Seen the notice ronnie nailed to the doorpost

                 Saying millions in this land are condemned

                  All the way from Gretna Green

                 To John O Groats.

                  I traveled through East Glasgow

                 Where Legions of Smoker Martyrs have Fallen

                 And I know - no one can sing the blues

                 Like chain smoker ronnie THE ARTIST.

Verse 2,  Well I heard that Glasgow Cowboy coughing

                 As he was taking down his pictures

                 The stars above and his old neighbour Reymond

                 Were his only audience,

                 Them charcoal nude woman drawings

                  Sure did look swell hanging on ronnie,s walls

                 But nobody can sing the blues 

                 Like chain smoker ronnie THE ARTIST.

Verse 3,  See them big Tobacco Harvesters working

                 See the turning of their mighty wheels

                Smell them choking diesel fumes

                We,ve come a long way since slavery ships

                I can hear all them smokers coughing

                Hear the undertakers bell,

                Nobody can sing the blues 

                Like chain smoker ronnie THE ARTIST.

Verse 4,  ronnie,s woman is down by the river

                With some fine young handsome white man

                He,s dressed up like a Tobacco Baron

                With a full glass of Johnnie Walker Whisky in his hand,

                There,s a chain smoker in everyone of us

                I can hear all them smokers cough and wheeze

                And I know no one can sing the blues

                Like chain smoker ronnie THE ARTIST.

Verse 5,  Well, GOD is in his Heaven

                And HE wants us all to stop smoking

                But money junkie greedy pig Tobacco Barons

                Seem to be all that there is,

                Now ronnie,s gazing out the window

               Of  his terminal cancer ward

               And he knows no one can sing the blues

               Like Lung Cancer Victim, chain smoker ronnie THE ARTIST.
