I got a right to sing the blues

The song that I just listened to leaves me with a strange feeling. You can call me old-fashioned if you want to, but I just don't think a blues song should start with the lyric "Standin' on the corner / With a cell phone in my hand." If you have a cell phone, that's a pretty good indication that you shouldn't have the blues.

Well, what if you had to call your woman (da da da da da)

from the side of the road (da da da da da)

and you ain't got no signal (da da da da da)

and now your car's bein' towed!
