|Jazzyjack||Lyr Req: Statesboro Blues (Blind Willie McTell) (35)||RE: Statesboro Blues||29 Nov 02|
I just performed this tune a few weeks ago to a noisy pub audience and asked " are there any Blind Willie McTell fans out there ? ". I waited until some dude shouted " obviously nobody knows him so get on with it ". Of course I did this deliberately because the racket was pissing me off. I do the Tom Rush version which admittedly isn't authentic but sometimes what you hear first is what sticks.
