If I have any info wrong here let me know via my CBN comment section on my page- Just click my name (Joker) above

i thought i had claimed God Don't ever.. but looks like i was too late so i would like to do Bye and Bye i'm going to see the King  - this is going to be a great project


I would like to get on the action with "You Can't Hide From God"...sign me up!!!  Please!

Your on the list John

Shane and all, I'd like Your Gonna Need Somebody On Your Bond please. Thanks, -Glenn


I'll Take "Go to Me with That Land" if its available.




There are still 9 songs left from Blind Willie's recordings unclaimed, how does everybody feel about claiming more than 1 to try to make a complete tribute?  I did one as a band, but I would like to do one solo also?  Thoughts?

Howdy Folks,

 I know I ain't around here much, Mighty busy. But Can I do "Take Your Stand"?

Thanks, Pat Cook.

You got it Pat
This has already got me working on multiple BWJ songs--great idea for expanding repertoire!

Best regards, Willie
I'll take NEED SOMEBODY ON YOUR BOND if it's still up.
I guess it was already taken early on, it was just missed sorry.  There are others left though
I'm in for TREAT A STRANGER RIGHT. As long as its still available
