Charlie Marshall - Blind Man Willie lyrics

Further up north in southeast philly
Lived a man, lived a man called blind man willie
With his dark sunglasses, and his ol' six-string
Further up north there in southeast philly

He was beaten in the head by his brother billy
This poor old man, an old man named willie
With his dark sunglasses, and his ol' six-string
Further up north behind the american deli

Yeah

From that day forward, he couldn't see a thing
One eye looked left, and the other looked right
That's how he got the name blind man willie
One he'd honor and cherish 'til the day he died

He never got signed, and never got a release
This dying old man called blind man willie
With his dark sunglasses, and his ol' six-string
Playin' for mere pennance in southeast philly

[solo]

He was beaten in the head by his brother billy
This poor old man, an old man named willie
With his dark sunglasses, and his ol' six-string
Further up north behind the american deli

From that day forward, he couldn't see a thing
One eye looked left, and the other looked right
That's how he got the name blind man willie
One he'd honor and cherish 'til the day he died

Yeah, from that day forward, he couldn't see a thing
One eye looked left, and the other looked right
That's how he got the name blind man willie
One he'd honor and cherish 'til the day he died

Further up north in southeast philly
Lived a man, lived a man called blind man willie
With his dark sunglasses, and his ol' six-string
Further up north there in southeast philly

Further up north there in southeast philly
