The No-Name Blues

Pulled from the song archives (which date back to 1993), we at The Silent Holocron present to you the first attempt at a blues song by Stephen. It’s a story song. The setting: a resident of Jerusalem from the time of the Crucifixion onward.

I understand a man just died
What was his name, sir, do you know?
The womenfolk cryin’, the chil’un hide their eyes
What was his name, sir, do you know?

Several year later, I met a man
What was his name, sir, do you know?
He talked ’bout the man I told you ’bout before
What was his name, sir, do you know?

Now I’m ready to die, think I hear that name again
What was his name, sir, do you know?
Everything goes black, no more listenin’
What was his name, sir, do you know?

I’m in a deep dark place, I see a man with a candle
What was his name, sir, do you know?
Oh, he starts cryin’, says how could you forget Jesus?
What was his name, sir, do you know?

These here blues, they’re here to remind you
Don’t ever forget that holy name
Well, that’s my story, I got the no-name blues
What was his name, sir, do you know?
