ROY BUCHANAN – THE MESSIAH WILL COME AGAIN(LIVE 1976)


RoyBuchananRoy Buchanan was one of the best guitarists few of us ever got to hear.  His style, tone and precision were legendary. He was able to make his Telecaster cry, plead and scream, without the benefit of effects pedals and other electronic enhancement.  Guitarists still study him.

In 1988, he committed suicide.  To this day, my favorite Roy Buchanan song is “The Messiah Will Come Again,” preceded here by a short, introductory poem that I always loved.

THE MESSIAH WILL COME AGAIN

“There was a town
It was a strange little town they called the world
It was a lonely, lonely little town


Till one day a stranger appeared
Their hearts rejoiced
and this sad little town was happy again


But there were some that doubted
They disbelieved, so they mocked Him
…  And the stranger He went away.

The sad little town that was sad yesterday, it’s a lot sadder today

I walked in a lot of places I never should have been
But I know that the Messiah,  He will come again…”

-Roy Buchanan, ( 1939-1988)
