"Blind Willie Johnson" as written by and Mikael Wiehe Bob Dylan....
I heard Blind Willie Johnson today
singing 'about sin the old fashioned way
I heard Blind Willie Johnson today
singing 'about sin the old fashioned way
Just about made me cry
looked up towards the sky
couldn't think of nothing to say

Looking for the soul of a man
through eyes that could not see
Looking for the soul of a man
through eyes that could not see
moaning and sliding
no time for hiding
for a poor boy like me

all I need Lord
is to hear you say it's gonna be alright
all I need Lord
is to hear you say it's gonna be alright

Wind it howls and the rain falls down
always on my head
Wind it howls and the rain falls down
always on my head
pack my bag real slow
I got nowhere to go
gonna stay in this bed

all I need Lord
is to hear you say it's gonna be alright
all I need Lord
is to hear you say it's gonna be alright
