Dave T Lyr Req: Statesboro Blues (Blind Willie McTell) (35) RE: Statesboro Blues 27 Aug 98

I'm sure this song is in the DT or was at some time. I asked this same question about 6 months ago and someone directed me to the lyrics. Jon's version is the same as mine. I have the CD "Blind Willie MctTell: The Early Years, 1927 - 1933" (YAZOO) and the lyrics are right. The only part I had trouble with is the line "Big Eighty left Savannah...". Anyway, I highly recommend the CD if you're a Willie McTell fan. As fas as the music goes, try playing it in drop D tuning.
