Blind Willie McTell – Delia

William Samuel McTier, better known by his performing name, Blind Willie McTell, was born May 5th, 1898 in Thomson, Georgia.  Blind since early childhood, McTell began playing the guitar in his teenage years, eventually leaving his home in Statesboro, Georgia to live as a wandering busker.  He lived in relative obscurity for the vast majority of his life despite being insanely prolific.  He was also the motherfucking man.  This is one of my favorite songs by him.

Bless Up,
