Sonny Boy Williamson

This song is by Jack Bruce and Paul Jones and appears on the compilation Blowing the Blues: A History of Blues Harmonica 1926-2002 (2003).

This song has been covered by Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper under the title "Sonny Boy Williamson".
He is gone, Sonny Boy is dead and gone
He is gone, Sonny Boy is dead and gone
Can't nobody play harp the way he done

He is dead, he's dead, I ain't crying but I'm sad
He is dead, he's dead, I ain't crying but I'm sad
He made you feel good when he played, and me feel bad

I'm so glad, I'm so glad, that his music is going on
I'm so glad, I'm so glad, that his music is going on
But I'm so sad, so sad, the greatest one has gone
