"Blind Lemon Sam" as written by Andy Cousin, Tim Bricheno and Julianne / Regan....
Lady Jane had a castle in Spain,
Caviar and a second car
'Cause she's married to a film star
Children they had, always good never bad
Life's peach, she had one of each
And a house beside the beach.
Oh Jane, you'd better wake yourself
And shake yourself on up
Look in a looking-glass
And see the past you know.
So many fingers pull at the fabric of your dreams,
And by the sundial it seems,
Time's come to live a real life.

Blind Lemon Sam, he's a bluesman
He lives in a shack by the rail track
And Janie's got her bags packed
She's moving in 'cause she believes she loves him.
Life begun and they had some fun
And they made a lot of love
And raised a son.
You'd better pinch yourself
Convince yourself it's real
You'd better look around at the happiness you found.

Sam passed away,
and Janie cried all day.
She turned for love to the Lord above
'Cause that's all she could think of to do.

    General CommentThis is basically about a woman who had everything she could possibly wish for: a rich husband, wonderful children, a "house by the beach"...but she still isn't happy. She doesn't love her husband no matter how rich he is and loves another man instead - a poor man who can offer her nothing except his love. She leaves her rich husband and children for Blind Lemon Sam and her life becomes a lot happier...I think this song is basically trying to say that no matter how poor you and your boyfriend/girlfriend are, your love for each other will keep you strong and happier than you ever thought you could be...don't marry for money, basically, marry for love
