The Seventh Son
Willie Dixon Lyrics


Well now everybody cryin' 'bout the seventh son
But in the whole round world there is only one, and
I'm the one, yes, I'm the one
I'm the one, I'm the one,
I'm the one they call the seventh son

Well I can tell your future before it comes to pass
And I can do things for you that make your heart feel glad
Look at the skies and predict the rain
I can tell when a woman's got another man
I'm the one, yes, I'm the one
I'm the one, I'm the one,
I'm the one they call the seventh son

Now I can hold you close and I can squeeze you tight
And I can make you cry for me both day and night
And I can heal the sick and even raise the dead
And make you little girls talk out of your head
I'm the one, yes, I'm the one
I'm the one, I'm the one,
I'm the one they call the seventh son

Now I can talk these words that sound so sweet
I can make your little heart even skip a beat
I can take you, baby, hold you in my arms
And make the flesh quiver on your lovely bones
I'm the one, yes, I'm the one
I'm the one, I'm the one,
I'm the one they call the seventh son

Well now everybody cryin' 'bout the seventh son
But in the whole round world there is only one, and
I'm the one, yes, I'm the one
I'm the one, I'm the one,
I'm the one they call the seventh son
I'm the one they call the seventh son
I'm the one they call the seventh son

It seems every time I hear a good blues tune, Willie Dixon wrote it. Incredible song writer AND musician.

Big-J

Willie Dixon; The most underrated and under appreciated Blues man of all time.

Potnios Demetros

@Big-J Exactly..most people dont know shit..in almost everything..but for tthose who know his influence to modern music is huge..
The fact that he wrote a lot of songs and music and he gave it to others..like Muddy for example or Howlin Wolf..no matter if he did it coz he had problems with his contracts etc..its one of the reasons he is not mentioned so much..and this fact speaks volumes about his character as a person...

@Big-J guess I was making age assumptions, but he was never underrated. or under appreciated. Its usually people who are too young or recently discovered him who say that

Big-J

@Potnios Demetros understand and should have clarified. I wasn't talking about his influence or the songs he wrote. I am referring to most people not knowing his influence or the songs he wrote for Muddy.

Big-J

@rc You are making age assumptions.

Potnios Demetros

Willie Dixon underrated and under appreciated??? No my friend..he is the heart and the base of the blues..u can ask Muddy..

God bless Willie's soul! SOOOO great! Who the hell disliked this?

John Allen

Willie Dixon was a great blues musician and writer. When all the big black players were coming out of the south and up to Chicago Willie was there to help them out and he was a talent scout for Chess Records.
