Statesboro Blues

Blind Willie McTell - Bob Dylan
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, “This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem”
I traveled through East Texas
Where many martyrs fell
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

I must confess, I am totally out of it. I know Blind Willie McTell and his work pretty well. I did not not know that Bob Dylan wrote a damned song about him. Apparently a damned famous song, judging by the number of covers on YouTube. Out of the loop again. Damn. That's the story of my life.

Also see Allman Brothers Band. One of my top five.
