Egyptian Bluez Lyrics Page,
When I wrote this song, I had not heard of Kemet. But I chose to keep the name Egyptian Bluez because, well, it just fits! Most people know the name Egypt, and do not know about Kemet, so this song can serve as a bridge, as an introduction to Kemet, just as it was for me when I first wrote this song back in 1986 or 1987. It was the very forst song that I wrote as an adult. Or second. I was pregnant with Monoah, and it was either this song or her song, Monoah’s Ark, that came first. I do believe it was Monoah’s Ark. Anyhoo, one of the first….It was also around this time that I watched that Sun Ra video, Space is the Place. I will find it and post it here next time…
