On another list I belong to one of the current discussions concerns the
content of bluegrass lyrics.  Most of the contributors seem to agree that
topically the subjects stay close to death, Mother, Jesus, and dysfunctional
love.  Sentiments of alienation from home, God, a loved one etc. are common.

Sounds a lot like the blues to me.
