In the middle of the night 
Six strings down 
On the heaven-bound flight 
Got a pick, a strap, guitar on his back 
Ain't gonna cut the angels no slack 
Heaven done called 

Another blues-stringer back home 
See the voodoo chile 
Holding out his hand 
I've been waitin' on you brother 
Welcome to the band 
Good blues-stringin' 
Heaven-fine singin' 
Jesus, Mary and Joseph 

Been lis'nin' to your playin' 
Heaven done called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Lord they called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Albert Collins up there 

Muddy an' Lightnin' too 
Albert King and Freddy 
Playin' the blues 
T-Bone Walker, Guitar Slim 
Little Son Jackson and 
Frankie Lee Sims 

Heaven done called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Lord they called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Lord they called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Heaven done called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Lord they called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Heaven done called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
They called 
Another blues-stringer back home 
Back home
