Do You Remember Me

“Do Lord, oh do Lord / Oh do you remember me? Way beyond the blue…” – I tried to fingerpick the melody of this old gospel on my acoustic guitar [key of F# major] – of course there are wonderful versions on youtube by Mississippi John Hurt (with a perfect history pics slide show) and by Eva Cassidy (her breath-taking a capella version, R.I.P.)

  1. Nice job, Frizz. 🙂
    Happy Monday!


  2. A beautiful song and an evocative image!


  3. Your song played while I was pressing the coffee a few feet from the computer. nice music to start my morning, thanks!
    “Do You Remember Me” took me back to my Mississippi childhood roots in the Delta.
    Eva Cassidy; what a powerful and amazing woman whose voice will forever touch our lives. For some reason, her death strikes me as more tragic than most.

    “I Shall Not Be Moved” was a song that our cook sang after the prayer and before we dined during special events. I can still picture Jenny standing to my father’s right. As the song progressed, her swaying became more animated… Although I don’t have a recording of her singing that song, it will forever be branded in my mind as if she were singing in person in the present!


  4. Thanks, Frizztext.. I looked at more song, and this one reflects the version that Jenny sang for us:

    An impressive portrait of Blackfoot Chief.
    (Are you familiar with the art of Bev Doolittle? I have some of her beautiful Native American artwork in my house, as well as others of her “camouflage art”.)


  12. Great guitar playing and I especially enjoy Eva Cassidy and I have a CD of her which I love to listen to.


Hearing from you makes my day!
