Lyrics

Low Back Pain Blues
Jeffrey Powel

I’m laying in bed, feelin’ quite blue
Body’s been aching, my mind’s ailin’ too
I’m laying in bed; Boy, there’s something wrong with me.

Check’s two weeks late; My rent’s overdo
Baby’s been crying to see me so blue
Check’s two weeks late.

I’ve beaten my kids, I’ve yelled at my wife
It seems that I hate all the love in my life.
I’ve beaten my kids. Boy there’s something wrong with me.

The looks they near kill me; I’ve wished I was dead.
Even my doctor’s convinced, that it’s all in my head.
The looks they near kill me. Boy there’s something wrong with me.

I’m laying in bed, feelin’ quite blue
Body’s been aching, my mind’s ailin’ too
I’m laying in bed; Boy, there’s something wrong with me.

 

 

The words and music for this song were written in the mid 1980's when a then Dr. Powel was working as a staff psychologist at a local Pain Clinic. The song was written after many years of experience there listening to the often heartbreaking stories that detailed the consequences of living with chronic pain. The acronym LBP stands for Low Back Pain and, though never mentioned in the song, was the constant companion to almost all of the patients of Dr. Powel. The song reflects an amalgam of experiences that the patients reported and is not specific to any one individual.

Jeff Powel is playing the acoustic guitar part that is the backbone to the song. Jake Powel, Jeff's older borther, is a jazz guitarist, and played the beautiful blues riffs that flow throughout the piece. Eric Lindstrom is playing the keys and Jeff and Steve Thomas contributed the bass and percussion. Ray Burns and Chris Rininger sing the bluesy harmonies that define the chorus.
