1.I met Duke, back in '85.. when I first come t' this town
   we was both giggin' at the same joint then.. he's one'a the first
   few friends I found
   He was a real Classic Bluesman.. 'n I just loved what he was puttin'

2.Yeah, Duke played the piano.. 'n he sung with all'a his heart
   he worked with Billie Holiday 'n alot'a them Jazz Folks..
   back when they got their start
   yeah, he sure knew his history.. he was a Master of his Art

3. Me 'n Duke used t' run together.. even after he took sick
   'cause, music 'n people was better medicine.. than any Doctor
   could prescript
