Famous Blues Covers


"Eyesight to the Blind" is a blues song written and recorded in 1951 by Sonny Boy Williamson II (Aleck "Rice" Miller).





The Who adapted the song for the 1969 rock opera album Tommy.









 Here below Sonny's version. It's a 12-Bar blues.




"You talk about your woman,

I wish you could see mine.
You talk about your woman,
I wish you could see mine.
Every time she starts to loving
She brings eyesight to the blind.
Her daddy gave her magic,
I can tell by the way she walks.
Daddy gave her lots of magic,
I can tell by the way she walks.
Every time she starts a-shakin',
The dumb begin to talk.
She has got the power to heal you,
Never fear.
She has got the power to heal you,
Never fear.
Just one word from her lips
And the deaf can hear."
