Afternoon Song – Trouble Will Soon Be Over

April 10, 2016

Blind Willie Johnson knew a thing or two about trouble.  Legend has it he was blinded at age 7 when his father beat his mother and she threw lye in Johnson’s eyes. He was a street preacher and singer in Texas, dying in Beaumont after contracting malaria and a hospital refused him admittance.

So when he sings verses like,

God is my strong protection, He’s my bosom friend;
Trouble arose all around me, I know who will take me in.

you can be sure he knows what he’s talking about.
