lyrics

They buried Fred McDowell
In a three piece silver suit
And Bonnie bought the marker for the grave
Picked cotton all his life
And then he picked up the guitar
So others could walk that road that he paved
So keep your lamps trimmed and burning
Keep your lamps trimmed and burning
Keep your lamps trimmed and burning
Some were born to wear the slide
Like a ring forged for a king
And some were born to sit for hours and play
Wouldn't it be strange
To turn on the radio
To hear the Rolling Stones playing your songs
You see, they bought that three piece suit
As a token of their thanks
For helping the blues carry on
So keep your lamps trimmed and burning
Keep your lamps trimmed and burning
Keep your lamps trimmed and burning
