I play blues for a living. Literally. All my income comes from playing the blues. I don’t listen to it for pleasure. I do it to survive.

Country is far more rooted in melody and harmony and the guitar uses major and minor lead patterns. And the lyricism is better.

And the lyricism is better.
Ehh this one is arguable.

Today's the day I leave forever
This town where we once loved together
Now that love is gone I guess I'm free
I'll leave behind both you and sorrow

And take just what I'll have tomorrow
When there's miles and miles and miles
Between this town and me
This town's not big enough for both of us to be

I can't go anywhere without your memory
In every window pane your face is all I see
This town's not big enough to hold both you and me
I'll drop the dreams I've held so tightly
Shed my tears and travel lightly

Anything to ease my heavy load
I'll find a town in far-off places
Where the windows have no faces
Many miles from anywhere along this lonely road

Adam Reyes

I'd say Death Letter Blues is on par. Not even mentioning any Jandek material that is pure poetry because people don't consider it to be "blues"

I have but i find them a bit monotonous. Around the same period we have some superb groovy recordings from jug bands and other early jazz which i much prefer to delta blues. Also the genius here in pic related

speaks up on issues that actually matter
Lmao no it doesn't. PROTIP: It mostly speaks about the same issues that your common trap rapper does: getting loaded, getting rich, getting bitches, and getting even. If you like delta blues then you like over 80% of the content in trap music.

Country blues is most often used for the hybrid of country and blues popularized by Jimmie Rodgers and Jimmie Davis.
