The Weary Blues by Langston Hughes

“Droning a drowsy syncopated tune,
Rocking back and forth to a mellow croon,      
     I heard a Negro play.
Down on Lenox Avenue the other night
By the pale dull pallor of an old gas light      
     He did a lazy sway . . .      
     He did a lazy sway . . .
To the tune o’ those Weary Blues.”
