  1. On the Porch of the Blue Front Café,
    Bentonia, Mississippi

    We’re sittin’ on the porch of the Blue Front Café,
    two brothers and a bluesman at his Blue Front Café
    watchin’ the evening sun sink and fade away.

    Jimmy “Duck” Holmes goes to get his Epiphone,
    comes back huggin’ his sweet baby Epiphone
    to show us its warm and deep old-time tone.

    Patting the ticker beating behind his beer
    Jimmy tells us he sings from “here.”
    He pulls from the sky a song low and near.

    Two brothers and a bluesman watchin’ the sun,
    two brothers and a bluesman followin’ the sun
    go down into a song sung by a native son.

    We feel the sun go down in a new song
    with a poem to climb out of it before long.
    A Bentonia bluesman “skies” a poet a song.
