    Blind Willie McTell

    Seen the arrow on the doorpost

    Saying, “This land is condemned

    All the way from New Orleans

    To Jerusalem”

    I traveled through East Texas

    Where many martyrs fell

    And I know no one can sing the blues

    Like Blind Willie McTell

     

    Well, I heard that hoot owl singing

    As they were taking down the tents

    The stars above the barren trees

    Were his only audience

    Them charcoal gypsy maidens

    Can strut their feathers well

    But nobody can sing the blues

    Like Blind Willie McTell

     

    See them big plantations burning

    Hear the cracking of the whips

    Smell that sweet magnolia blooming

    See the ghosts of slavery ships

    I can hear them tribes a-moaning

    Hear that undertaker’s bell

    Nobody can sing the blues

    Like Blind Willie McTell

     

    There’s a woman by the fire

    With some fine young handsome man

    He’s dressed up like a squire

    Bootlegged whiskey in his hand

    There’s a chain gang on the highway

    I can hear them rebels yell

    And I know no one can sing the blues

    Like 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.JamesHotel

    And I know no one can sing the blues

    Like Blind Willie McTell
