Death of Blind Boy Fuller

Death of Blind Boy Fuller

Brownie McGhee

He's gone, Blind Boy Fuller's gone away
He's gone, Blind Boy Fuller's gone away
Well he heard a voice calling, and he knew he could not stay

Well he called me to his bedside one morning, and the clock was strikin' four
Called me to his bedside one morning, and the clock was strikin' four
Brownie take my guitar and carry my business on, I won't stay here no more

Blind Boy had a million friends, north, east, south and west
Blind Boy had a million friends, north, east, south and west
Well you know it's hard to tell, which place he was loved the best

Well all you women of Blind Boy's, how do you want your lovin' done?
All of you women of Blind Boy's, how do you want your lovin' done?
I'll do my best, I'll do my best, to carry Blind Boy's business on

Goodbye Blind Boy!

[From the unissued take:]
He's gone, Blind Boy Fuller's gone away
He's gone, Blind Boy Fuller's gone away
Well he heard a voice calling, and he knew he could not stay

Well he called me to his bedside, and the clock was strikin' four
Yeah he called me to his bedside, and the clock was strikin' four
Brownie take my guitar, carry my business on, Blind Boy won't be here no more

Blind Boy had a million friends, east, north, south and west
Blind Boy had a million friends, east, north, south and west
Well you know that it's hard to tell, which place he was loved the best

(spoken:)
Moan...
Blind Boy was my best friend,
Now I declare he's gone

Well I heard he had a million women friends, how I wonder how they want their lovin' done
Blind Boy had a million women friends, wonder how they want their lovin' done
Well
