I found references to it; is this the same as Etta James "I'd Rather Go Blind"? If so, I found lyrics for that and can post them.

hi Sorcha, Thanks very much for your reply.AIthough I have the lyrics I'd rather go blind by Etta James They don't fit to Freddie King's lyrics. His lyrics are completely different from Etta's. See you later

I was only able to find out this much: It was written by Leon Russell, and it contains the line "I'd rather be blind than to see you go."

Evidently, it was on the 1972 album 'Texas Cannonball' Shelter LP SW-8913. I have a weird CD reissue of that album with bonus tracks: Freddie King 'The Texas Cannonball' Possum POSCD 6890 [Licensed from Shelter]. Although 'I'd Rather Be Blind' and another, previously unreleased 7-min intrumental from the same sessions, 'Pulpwood', are listed on the back of the CD as tracks 5 and 13, neither are actually on it. I had to renumber the tracks after number 4. I never bothered to send the CD back to the supplier because I assumed they were all like that, and there was ample great music on it anyway. Leon Russell was pianist and co-producer at the sessions (Feb 1972 in Memphis and Los Angeles).
