Taj Mahal

Henry Saint Clair Fredericks (born May 17, 1942), who uses the stage name Taj Mahal, is an American Grammy Award winning blues musician. He often incorporates elements of world music into his music. A self-taught singer-songwriter and film composer who plays the guitar, banjo and harmonica (among many other instruments), Mahal has done much to reshape the definition and scope of blues music over the course of his almost 50 year career by fusing it with nontraditional forms, including sounds from the Caribbean, Africa and the South Pacific. more »

Who's that a-writin'? John the Revelator! 
Who's that a-writin'? John the Revelator! 
Who's that a-writin'? John the Revelator! 

Hey, the book of the seven seals 
What's John a-writin'? About the revelation? 
Hey, book of the seven seals 
Well, I who or who would I be, thousands cried of holy 

Found the fountain, son of our bible God 
Daughter of Zion, Judah the lion 
He redeemeth and he bought us with blood 
John the Revelator, great advocator 

Gets'em on the battle of Zion 
Lord, tellin' the story, risin' in glory 
Cried, "Lord, don't you love" 
Well, Moses to Moses, watchin' the flock 

Saw the bush, well, he had to stop 
God told Moses, "Pull off your shoes" 
I let the flock go, well, you I choose
