This vivid oral snapshot of an America that planted the blues is full of rhythmic grace. From the son of a sharecropper to an itinerant bluesman, Honeyboy’s stories of good friends Charlie Patton, Big Walter Horton, Little Walter Jacobs, and Robert Johnson are a godsend to blues fans. History buffs will marvel at his unique perspective and firsthand accounts of the 1927 Mississippi River flood, vagrancy laws, makeshift courts in the back of seed stores, plantation life, and the Depression.

All the people flowed to the Mississippi Delta
The water overflowed her heart
I kept that guitar in my hands
Honey can play now!
I wasn't going back to them fields
The world don't owe me nothing!
I was just up and down the road
I had three ways of making it
Everything sounded good to me
Robert was crazy about women and crazy about his whiskey
We was all just country boys
Daddy, you can be my lemon squeezer!
I didn't give a damn about nothing
I had to go back to Coahoma before I got found
He didn't know how good he was
We did so good together, I kept her
The blues is something that keeps you moving
It don't always matter how good you play
Chicago used to be a music town
I never doubted myself
I just got lucky when I got Bessie
I stayed with the blues
