Blues Lyrics of the Week: Mona Lisa was a man

“If I don’t love you baby…
Grits ain’t groceries,
Eggs ain’t poultry,
And Mona Lisa was a man”

I mentioned this one in yesterday’s post on the Homemade Jamz Blues Band (I Got Blues for You) as being the new album’s only cover song. Written by Titus Turner, Grits Ain’t Groceries was first recorded by blues performer Little Milton, and has over the years been covered by the likes of Van Morrison, John Mayall, Edwin McCain, George Jones, and blues-rock band Wet Willie.
