People keep asking me where the blues started and all I can say is that when I was a boy we always was singing in the fields. Not real singing, you know, just hollerin’, but we made up our songs about things that was happening to us at that time, and I think that’s where the blues started. (San House, 1965) in Nothing but the Blues, The Music and the Musicians Lawrence Cohn-Introduction by BB.King
