Blues in E - Leo Susana



I wrote this song a couple of years ago after watching a Buddy Guy instructional video. Recently, and by recently I mean the past 4 or 5 years, I've been leaning a lot towards playing more bluesy stuff, although even with my metal band, JLS, I've tended to riff in a blues rock style, inevitable given that my main influences as a guitar player all descend from the blues ( That would be Sabbath, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin etc ).
Now, this song originally had no title, I would just call it Blues in E, but as is traditional with certain things, I've now started using the first line of the song as it's title. "You Know I lost my woman"
The lyrics of the song are pretty basic.

You know I lost my woman
yeah she went and died
you know I lost my woman
yeah she went and died
It took me a while, I ain't over her
but I will survive

You know I've been runnin'
I've been runnin' such a long, long time
you know I've been runnin'
I've been runnin' such a long, long time
I got no destination
got no time to arrive

I repeat the last verse after the solo.
When I officially record this song I'll probably play it just on an acoustic, and maybe dirty it up a little with an electric guitar overdubbed for some licks and possibly the solo. Since it's a very basic structure, it lends itself for lots of coloring. E, A, B and the end I jump to an F9 before I hit that last E chord.
Blues in E.
