about

A Southern rock update of the gospel number best known in a version by Rev. Gary Davis, one of my musical heroes (ditto, Jimmy Page in the bit of 12-string that pops up midway).

lyrics

Oh Lord, search my heart
Oh Lord, search my heart
Oh Lord, search my heart
So I know if I’m right or if I’m wrong

Out in the desert, search my heart
In the desert, search my heart
Out in the desert, search my heart
So I know if I’m right or if I’m wrong

If I wound my brother, search my heart
If I wound my brother, search my heart
If I wound my brother, search my heart
So I know if I’m right or if I’m wrong

Should they take me, search my heart
Angels take me, search my heart
Angels take me, search my heart
So I know if I’m right or if I’m wrong

about

William Lee Ellis Memphis

"There's no one else playing exactly the same sort of music as William Lee Ellis," said legendary producer Jim Dickinson of the Americana/blues master acoustic guitarist. "It's as if he's invented his own sort of 'holy blues' genre."
