I need a good song quote (preferably from a blues song) to go in my high school year book. Any suggestions?

Feel free to call me Kyle.

I should point out, these quotes dont have to be pure blues. I'll take songs from Jimi Hendrix, or people like that, too.
Feel free to call me Kyle.

well if you take jimi then:

Now if 6 turned out to be 9,
I don't mind, I don't mind,
Alright, if all the hippies cut off all their hair,
I don't care, I don't care.


there's more but they tend to be sad, and i guess you should use something more positive. otherwise there are great lines

The traffic lights they turn blue tomorrow

is one of the best.
"I see my light come shining from the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now I shall be released"

Know any good teachers in NY, especially skilled in teaching ear training? Tell me

Lyrics ...

Jimi

When Im sad, she comes to me
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
Its alright she says its alright
Take anything you want from me, anything
- Little Wing

A broom is drearily sweeping up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
Somewhere a queen is weeping somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind it cries mary- Wind Cries Mary

Clapton and his bands ...
I can walk down the street, theres no one there
Though the pavements are one huge crowd.
I can drive down the road; my eyes dont see,
Though my mind wants to cry out loud.
- Cream - I feel free

Ill wait in this place where the sun never shines;
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves.
- White Room

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.
- Layla

Laugh at me walking,
And I have no place to go.
Bad luck and trouble has taken me;
I have no money to show.
- Double Trouble

Rory Gallagher

The one in my sig.

Life Without You ... I like the whole song so

Oh oh now baby, tell me how have you been
We all have missed you, and the way you grin
The day is necessary, every now and then
For souls to move on, givin' life back again, and again
Fly on fly on, fly on my friend
Go on, live again love again

Day after day, night after night
Sittin' here singin' every minute,
as the years go passing by, by, by, by
Long look in the mirror, we've come face to face
Wishin' all the love we took for granted,
love we have today

Life without you, all the love you passed my way
The angels have waited for so long, now they have their way
Take your place

Yeah they took me away from tin pan alley
And took me right back, to the pen
- Tin Pan Alley

I ain't gonna give up on love,
Love ain't gonna give up on me.
Every tear I cried
Only washed away the fear inside.
I just ain't gonna give up on love.

Every beat of my heart
Pounds with joy and not with pain.
All those painful memories
They only brought me to my knees

Little Johnny Taylor told me so, so long ago,
All about the midnight crying, oh lord,
All the cheating and lying
And about the price that must be paid.
'Cause if we gave up on love,
Well, love will surely have its day.
If we don't give up on love.
- Aint gonna give up on love

Life by the Drop - Stevie Ray Vaughan

Hello there, my old friend
Not so long ago it was til the end
We played outside in the pouring rain
On our way up the road we started over again

Youre livin a dream....wo you on top
My mind is achin....lord it wont stop
Thats how it happens....livin life by the drop

Up and down that road in our worn out shoes
Talkin bout good things and signin the blues
You went your way....i stayed behind
We both knew it was just a matter of time

Youre livin a dream....wo you on top
My mind is achin....lord it wont stop
Thats how it happens....livin life by the drop

No wasted time....were alive today
Churnin up the past....theres no easier way
Times been between us....a means to an end
God its good to be here walkin together my friend

Youre livin a dream....wo you on top
My mind is achin....lord it wont stop
Thats how it happens....livin life by the drop
Thats how it happens....livin life by the drop
Thats how it happens....livin life by the drop

"I think I've got something special to say with my music. But I have to keep these things in perspective, because they're gifts.

It's all a gift, and I have to keep giving it back or it goes away. If I start believing that it's all my doing, it's gonna be my undoing.

I'm committing myself to doing the most I can with the gifts I have, so that they do as much good as possible."
