The Lyrics should read "I took my Harp out of my Dirty Red Bandana". Harp meaning a harmonica.
Hi, The reference to 'Harpoon' is meant to imply the harmonica; a familiar musical instrument which is often referred to as a 'Harp', and less often, a 'Harpoon'. So after retrieving his harmonica from his 'Dirty Red Bandanna' (apparently he no longer had the original case:) he began 'blowing sad', meaning, of course, 'playing' the Blues with all his heart and soul on his Harpoon, while Bobby 'sang' the blues. (Sorry if this reply is redundant; I could not see any other responses) BTW: 'Harpoon' is also considered slang for a hypodermic needle. Double entendre? I don't think so, however, the argument could be plausible.
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana? So are they going spear fishing or something? The mental image is funny.
