Blind Willie McTell

Well, God is in His heaven
And we all want what’s his
But power and greed and corruptible seed
Seem to be all that there is
I’m gazing out the window
Of the St. James Hotel
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell

(“Blind Willie McTell” by Bob Dylan)


A lot of McTell’s music has that same completeness that you find in Robert Johnson. Finely crafted songs…and amazing singing & playing! He’s one of those musicians who seem to transcend genres as well as time & place.
Really like the Dylan song too, by the way.
