    Wikipedia's article on the blues covers lyrics and gives some examples. Please read it.

    Well the typical chord sequence is...

    I I I I IV I V I I V VI I I / V /IV

    I don't think the words necessarily have to rhyme. Often there's a call and response between the vocal line and guitarist/pianist.

    Or call and response between two vocalists? That could also work well.

    Sorry I don't know that much!
