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' down
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 Yeah, gettin' out 'n livin' life for ole Duke.. that'd would always do the trick
