You see all these people out here on this street Eddie?
See they got blues
I'm talkin' 'bout they po', they broke, they hungry
That's blues

Well the blues can live in Buckhead too
I know, it's just a richer shade of blue
But it's still blue
I can feel it
Listen

He got everything he want
But everything he need money dont buy
Now if that aint blues I say listen
Oh

They look at him
All they see is dollar signs
Now, if that aint blues I say listen
A rich shade of blue

Okay, Okay, you snappin, you snappin
A rich shade of blue
Well im just playin' what I feel
And it sure feels good
A rich shade of blue

I see I'm 'bout to bring you down to bankhead more often
Cuz you goin' off
A rich shade of blue
Or we can take it to Buckhead, and do it Peach Street style
A rich s'hade of blue

Everybody fall down sometime
Yeah just like that
Oh but you gotta get to the place
Where they know your face
And they don't mind if you cry sometimes
They listen, cuz they cry too

Oooh, thats right right right
A rich shade of blue
I guess it aint where you from, it's where you at
A rich shade of blue
Its my birthday, and Im having the best worst time of my life
A rich shade of blue
Man, we stand out on this corner any longer
You gon' make me rich
A rich shade of blue

    It expresses a life away from high class society and takes you to a lower class setting. It means that you cant take va;luable items for granted because some of the lower class can't even afford it.
