Always a crowd favorite, especially in the economically-ravaged but relentless Detroit area. This is, for the most part, a hard-working town that isn't look for a hand-out, but is willing to "work my blues away". Though every now and then a hand-out can certainly help...

Having Nick and Ian sit in on this closing song was a joy. Tom and Jake tore it up, and I had a bit of fun myself wandering through the crowd with my wireless mic and blues harp.

Thanks to the friendly staff at the Hard Rock Cafe for securing our parking validation...


Lord, I've been working, working hard every day
Now the factory's shuttin’ down, all the jobs are goin’ away
I looked my baby in the eyes…I didn't know what to say

I just hung my head down low, tried to force the tears away
But it's just no use – feels like the blues are here to stay
so I got on my knees - I began to pray
(what can I do but pray at a time like this?)

I cried, "Lord, Lord, Lord – what can I do or say?
You know the bills will still keep coming, I won't have dollar one to pay;
I ain't looking for a hand-out – I want to work my blues away -
can you help me out?"


I want to work, work, work - work my blues away
I want to work, work, work - work my blues away
I ain't looking for a hand-out - I'll do my part to earn my pay.

I want to work, work, work - work my blues away
I ain't looking for a hand-out…
I want to work my blues… away.
