♪ Oh, you're damn right, I've got the blues ♪

♪ From my head, down, down to my shoes ♪

♪ Damn right, damn right, damn right, damn right, damn right ♪

♪ Damn right, I've got the blues ♪

♪ You know, I can't win

- I won a Grammy

for 'Damn Right, I've Got The Blues'.

Which is my first one.

And (chuckles)

I think I got eight or nine, now.

It was the thrill of my life, man,

I still can't sit here and believe I have eight or nine

Grammies.

And I don't believe it.
