As you spin along...

pedal your
blues away!


What must be the first blues bicycle song was written by Earl Rouse & Brothers for Perfect Records in 1936. The cartoonist, R. Crumb and his band, The Cheap Suit Serenaders, did a cover in the 70s. You can hear another cover of it by the Dutch ukulele 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.

Hold up your chin,
let them see you grin,
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!

Awesome.

"Pedal your blues away,
you'll find love in every by-way.
Hold up your chin,

and pedal your blues a-way!"

To repeat myself, "Where the heck do you find this stuff?"

That's what happens when under-employment leaves you with a lot of time on your hands. Honestly, I just Google silly combinations like "bicycle songs".
