covid nineteen blues

Based on Jim Croce’s Workin’ at the Car Wash Blues.

According to Wikipedia, “Workin’ at the Car Wash Blues” is a 1974 single written and recorded by Jim Croce. It was the third single released from his album I Got a Name. It reached a peak of #32 in July 1974 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is Croce’s last Top 40 hit to date. It was also the fourth single released (including Christmas-themed release “It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way”) after Jim Croce’s passing in September 1973.

Croce explained he came up with the idea for the song while in the military at Fort Jackson running telephone cables on poles and thinking he should be doing something else.

Fort Jackson is about 40 miles from where I am right.

Covid Ninetime Blue is what I am right now.

Not exactly anything to complain about.

I am not sick.

I do have a great job.

I work from home.

I work from home at my desk.

My desk is between my bed and a window.

I sleep 8 hours.

I work 8 hours.

I spend 16 hours a day in an area about the size of my car.

But I am not living in my car.

I have heat, water and food.

Not complaining.

Just covid nineteen blue.
