SAM'S LIFE appears on "Between Heaven and Hell" circa 1961. The song you are seeking is called ELEGY (PLAIN BLACK BOY). It is a version of Gwendolyn Brooks' poem OF DEWITT WILLIAMS ON HIS WAY TO LINCOLN CEMETERY describing the "landmarks" of Southside Chicago life. "Drive him past the pool hall/drive him past the show/blind within his casket/yeah, but maybe he'll know"
I will try to transcribe all the words and post over the weekend. Thanks for bringing me back to, without a doubt, my all-time favorite artist.
