Nawlins Vatican Tibetan Blues

from Bon Courage (2013) by Ben Shaman



Well I heard a little somethin down in New Orleans
Down in New Orleans
Yes they tell me of a man lived a hundred years
Lived a hundred years
Said tell me what’s the secret to a longer life
They said all you gotta do is not die

Well I went to see the Pope at the Vatican
At the Vatican
And I told him all about my life of sin
My life of sin
Said what must I do to get to Heaven?
He said, boy, just do the best you can

(whistle solo)

Well I climbed up a mountain in the land of Tibet
In the land of Tibet
I found the Dalai Lama just a’ sittin there
Just a’ sittin there
Said tell me Dalai Lama, what is true happiness?
He said mmhmmhmmmmhmmmhhhmmmmm
