Lyric for the day

You know the woman that I love
The woman that I love
I stol't her from my best friend
But you know he done got lucky
An he done got her back, again

Devil Got My Woman - Skip James

Nehemiah Curtis "Skip" James sharecropped, made bootleg whiskey, played guitar in open D minor tuning and developed the three-finger picking technique. Re-discovered at the same time as the masterful Son House in '64, he found long awaited recognition with Chris Thomas King covering his "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues" for the film O Brother Where Art Thou and Cream and Deep Purple covering his 'I'm So Glad'.
