“Woke Up On The Delta”
Woke up on the delta, heat pouring down,
Muddy, Mr. Johnson, and Wolf all in town.
Haunting, mystery, racial divide
Who says I got God on my side
Sound so steely, cold and blue
Renders a passion, a pain that’s true.
Sleepy Spanish moss, Camellias in bloom.
Dusty road, cotton fields, rain in June
Raw, shredded chords ragged and moan.
Cries of pain, a long way from home.
Lord I got to pay my dues
And everyday I sing the blues.
Blue in green, sunlight stream,
Smoky caverns heartache dream.
Been here before, hundred years ago,
The walls are faded, images show,
Jingle, jangle in my soul
A time out of time, a long time ago
