It will be constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise. But it will be low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one-and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces.” HENRY FORD

31 (1923) 1 Droning a drowsy syncopated tune, 2 Rocking back and forth to a mellow croon, 3 I heard a Negro play. 4 Down on Lenox Avenue the other night 5 By the pale dull pallor of an old gas light 6 He did a lazy sway.... 7 He did a lazy sway.... 8 To the tune o' those Weary Blues. 9 With his ebony hands on each ivory key 10 He made that poor piano moan with melody. 11 O Blues! 12 Swaying to and fro on his rickety stool 13 He played that sad raggy tune like a musical fool. 14 Sweet Blues! 15 Coming from a black man's soul. 16 O Blues! 17 In a deep song voice with a melancholy tone 18 I heard that Negro sing, that old piano moan-- 19 "Ain't got nobody in all this world, 20 Ain't got nobody but ma self.

32 21 I's gwine to quit ma frownin' 22 And put ma troubles on the shelf." 23 Thump, thump, thump, went his foot on the floor. 24 He played a few chords then he sang some more-- 25 "I got the Weary Blues 26 And I can't be satisfied. 27 Got the Weary Blues 28 And can't be satisfied-- 29 I ain't happy no mo' 30 And I wish that I had died." 31 And far into the night he crooned that tune. 32 The stars went out and so did the moon. 33 The singer stopped playing and went to bed 34 While the Weary Blues echoed through his head. 35 He slept like a rock or a man that's dead.

33 Summary: The speaker of Langston Hughes's "The Weary Blues" describes an evening of listening to a blues musician in Harlem. With its diction, its repetition of lines and its inclusion of blues lyrics, the poem evokes the mournful tone and tempo of blues music and gives readers an appreciation of the state of mind of the blues musician in the poem.
