This song is dedicated to the late, great Louisiana Red who passed 3 years ago. Although he had over 50 albums out, and won the award for best traditional blues album 3 times, he was not as well-known as many of his contemporaries, but every bit as talented.

Red was an incredible talent -- a delta-style guitarist and singer, but more than that, he was possibly the kindest person I ever knew. He was a gentle soul with a sweet sense of humor and always seemed completely happy and at peace with the world in spite of all the terrible things that happened to him the first 16 years of his life. Balfo posted this fine backing track and it immediately inspired me. To me, it’s difficult to make one-chord song work, but I gave it my best. Red played and recorded with so many of the other blues greats over the years – Albert King, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, BB King, Johnny Shines, Brownie McGee, Sunnyland Slim, and many others non- blues musicians like The Band an
