Pedal your blues away...

You'll find lots of happiness
as you spin along


The cartoonist, R. Crumb, has a band, The Cheap Suit Serenaders. In the 70s, they did a cover of what must be the first blues bicycle song. It was written by Earl Rouse & Brothers for Perfect Records in 1936. You can hear a cover of it by the Belgian band, The Winin' Boys.
Pedal your blues away,
forget all your troubles for play.
Hop on your bike any time you like,
and pedal your blues away.
Pedal your blues away
and ride down the ol' highway,
singing your songs as you roll along ã yes,
pedaling your blues away.

You'll fine lots of happiness as you spin along;
things are hunky-dory as you fly.
In the middle of your heart,
you'll find a new song,
with your palsy-walsy riding by your side.
Pedal your blues away,
you'll find love in every by-way.
Hold up your chin,
let them see you grin,
and pedal your blues away.

and pedal your blues away.

Pedal your blues away,
you'll find love in every by-way.
Hold up your chin,
let them see you grin,
and pedal your blues a-way!
