Blind Willie McTell

Blind Willie McTell (born William Samuel McTier May 5, 1898 – August 19, 1959), was a Piedmont and ragtime blues singer and guitarist. He played with a fluid, syncopated fingerstyle guitar technique, common among many exponents of Piedmont blues, although, unlike his contemporaries, he came to exclusively use twelve-string guitars. McTell was also an adept slide guitarist, unusual among ragtime bluesmen. His vocal style, a smooth and often laid-back tenor, differed greatly from many of the harsher voice types employed by Delta bluesmen, such as Charlie Patton. McTell embodied a variety of musical styles, including blues, ragtime, religious music, and hokum. more »

Got three womens
Yellow, brown and black
I got three womens
Yellow, brown and black

It'll take the Governor of Georgia
To judge one of these women I like

One for in the morning
One for late at night
One for in the morning
One for late at night

I got one for noontime
To treat your old daddy right

These blues at midnight
They don't leave me till day
These blues at midnight
They don't leave me till day

I didn't have none of my three women
To drive these blues away

One is a Memphis yellow
The other is a Savannah brown
One is a Memphis yellow
The other is a Savannah brown

One is a Statesboro dark skin
She'll really turn your damper down

Now if I had listen
To what my three women said
Now if I had listen
To what my three women said

I'd a‑been home sleeping
In a doggone feather bed
