about

Zoe says: “We had the melody, chords and arrangement of the song first, then the words kinda jumped out at us… one of those ones that happen very quickly and easily. It’s a feel good number, and always great fun live.”

lyrics

When I was a young girl, with eyes open wide
My mother took to one side and said
Zoe girl, let me give you some advice
Stay away from boys, they’ll do you no good
Stay away from bad boys they would, if they could
No, I can’t live like that

When I was a young girl, Gazing at the world
My teacher took to one side and said
Zoe girl, let me give you some advice
Stay away from that music, it’s owned by the devil don’t you know
Stay away from that music it’ll steal away your soul
No, I can’t live like that,

Well, here I am playing the blues, on the road
Breaking the rules
I got my band, payin’ our dues, boots on the boards
Singing the blues

When I was a young girl, with stars in my eyes.
My brother took me to one side and said,
Zoe girl, let me give you some advice
Don’t tell your mother, nor your teacher too
You’re a blues cat sister, a blues cat through and through
Oh I got to live like that, yeah,
