Playing VS Looking Good.

Gestalt.

Now there is a word you don't see tossed around among real (or faux) blues men and women much. If I was a bettin' man I would guess it has never been used in a blues song before. Truth is, imo, it would work better as a catchy tshirt slogan than it would as part of a lyric--where it might raise a few eyebrows if one were to use it in a blues song.

But what the heck...

Got the blues so damn bad
The doc says it ain't my fault(2x)
He says life made you like that,
Son your blues they is gestalt

You can make like Jimmy Reed
You can run try to hide(2x)
But these gestalt blues man,
Is bigger than a double wide

They sell blues by the pound
Call it nothing but a biz(2x)
But if your blues is gestalt
Man the blues is all there is.
