Eyesight to the Blind
Sonny Boy Williamson Lyrics


You've talking about your woman, I wish to God, man, that you could see
Mine
You're talking about your woman, I wish to God that you could see mine
Every time the little girl start to loving, she bring eyesight to the blind
Lord, her daddy must been a millionaire, 'cause I can tell by the way she
Walk
Her daddy must been a millionaire, because I can tell by the way she walk
Every time she start to loving, the deaf and dumb begin to talk
I remember one Friday morning, we was lying down across the bed
Man in the next room a-dying, stopped dying and lift up his head, and said,

"Lord, ain't she pretty, and the whole state know she fine!"
Every time she start to loving, she bring eyesight to the blind
(Spoken: All right and all right, now. Lay it on me, lay it on me, lay it
On me
Oh lordy, what a woman, what a woman! )
Yes, I declare she's pretty and the whole state knows she's fine
Man, I declare she's pretty, God knows I declare she's fine
Every time she starts to loving, whoo, she brings eyesight to the blind
(I've got to get out of here, now, let's go, let's go, let's go now)

You've been talking about your woman, I wish to God, man, that you could see mine

Lord, her daddy must been a millionaire, 'cause I can tell by the way she walk
Her daddy must been a millionaire, because I can tell by the way she walk
Every time she start to loving, the deaf and dumb begin to talk
I remember one Friday morning, we was lying down across the bed

One of the best blues recordings ever. Perfectly played and sung, unusual power.

THE BEST HARP PLAYER EVER...

GrilloTheFlightless

Fans of Little Walter would disagree. The legendary John Popper, when talking about claims that he is the best harmonica player in the world, said that there isn’t such a thing as the best harmonica player.

I met this man once. His tour bus was broken down on a lonesome back road in Kansas. Daddy and I parked the truck and gave them a hand (that was back in the day when you could without being mugged!) they played this tune, and more, right there on the side of the road for me while I fixed the wiring underneath the bus's carriage. I was the only who could crawl under and reach it! They were so grateful, we stopped at a hole in the wall cafe' and we talked, laughed, sang and played for hours. One of the best days of my life!! 1965. I was 8 years old......

Wow - great story! What a wonderful experience for an 8-year-old - and what a wonderful memory for a ... well, a what wonderful memory! Sounds like they enjoyed the whole thing, too.

Ben Cripps

This is not actually the sub standard version, but the best and most laid back version.  Its all a matter of opinion, isn't it! I don't know why the uploader said 1951 in the title line, you need to know your SBW recording history a bit better (and just the development of the sound, and the arrangements and instrumentation, as the 1950s moved on through the decade). About 5 or 6 seconds listening to a blues should enable you to pin down the recording period to within a year or two.  The classic backing musicians like Otis Spann and Robert Jr are so distinctive.
