Hubert Sumlin, 1931 - 2011
In memoriam

Spoonful of water in the desert sand
Smokestack lightning shooting out of his hands
Guitar lead in a Chicago band.

Boy aged six in a southern land
Played his axe and he played it grand
Cut his teeth on a Chicago band.

Red rooster walk with his tail all fanned
Back door man with his back door stand
That's what he played in that Chicago band.

Willie and Wolf made the Chicago brand
Radio carried it to foreign strands
Hubert's sound in that Chicago band.

Guitar man with your guitar hands
Walk on down to the Holy Land
Play devil blues in Heaven's band.

Collection available! Knocking from Inside
