Blues Poetry – Twelve Bar Lil

Twelve Bar Lil

by Dave Alan Walker

Twelve Bar Lil

Sweet Lilly Larnie
plays the blues away
she plays a three quarter strat
like B.B King plays Lucille

She plays the twelve bar blues
like nobody else can
she plays a blues lick so fast and quick
it makes you sick

She’s twelve bar Lil
the three quarter strat Queen
you wouldn’t believe
she’s only three

For my Daughter Lilly, who’s now four.
