Blind Willie Johnson’s Final Days by Daniel Johnson

Blind Willie Johnson’s Final Days
Daniel Johnson

Oh where should a blind man go?
Oh where should a blind man go?
When the fire eats his house,
How does the blind man roam?

I sleep in the tub of my home
I sleep in the tub of my home
All the love my love have shown
Oh where should a blind man go?

I pray to you Lord and play
I pray to you Lord and play
Underneath the shining Beaumont sun
I thank you Lord for my good sum.

I’m weak with this Texas fever.
I’m weak with this Texas fever.
I don’t know if a doc could be of help,
But I know it’s coming nearer.

My home, I’m gonna leave this place.
My home, I’m gonna leave this place.
I go with my guitar in case
And I’m gonna look in my mama’s face.

 


Daniel Johnson is a 21 year old English major who enjoys music of the delta blues.
