    blues roots I thank god for the one's that started building that foundation.may the saint's and the lord above ease their burdens.may we meet them on high there in glory.when we've laid our burden's down.praise God.for this knee slapper it made me feel good as gold.

    Pure back breaking, sweat dripping, sharecropping soul here folks. These early gospel songs transformed music for all generations. Everything from Rock to Rap was fomented in these Baptist ballads.
