    Oppressotron - I'd say you're probably right. The lyrics are quite similar - BWJs are a little bit more religious. By the way, does anyone know the chord structure to this song?

    Hmmmm... The style and vocals are similar to Charley Patton's "prayer of death". I'd be willing that both are based off a older gospel tune.

    ‘Cuz when you’re blind, your black and you live in the Jim Crow south, you don’t have many options. Not only that, if your loose one of your senses the others become sharpened in response. And now you know.
