T. B. Sheets (9:42)

Cover of Blowin' Your Mind!

From Blowin' Your Mind! and 2 other releases

“T.B. Sheets” is a blues-influenced song written and recorded by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, recorded for the Bang Records label in 1967 and included on his first solo album, Blowin’ Your Mind!. It later appeared on the Bang compilation, T.B. Sheets. The story as told in the song takes place in a hospital room where a young girl lies dying of tuberculosis and is visited by the storyteller. The overwhelming pain and guilt he feels leads to a desperate feeling of wanting to escape from the closed-in room smelling of death and disease.

“T.B. Sheets” was the opening song and featured prominently in the 1999 movie Bringing Out the Dead, directed by Martin Scorsese.

    This intro is like a sweltering hot day in the South. In some one horse town, at noon. Walking to the only diner in town to get a cold drink finding the waitress dancing.
