Song of the Day: “God Don’t Never Change” – Blind Willie Johnson

1

Today’s Gospel Sunday Song of the Day comes from gospel-blues guitarist Blind Willie Johnson, a Texas preacher and musician whose 30 songs were recorded in the three year period from 1927 to 1930. Johnson, who reportedly lost his sight as a child when his stepmother accidentally threw lye into his eyes, mainly performed on street corners and remained poor throughout his life. However, he was an excellent slide guitarist and his influence has been long-lasting, with songs like “Dark Was the Night — Cold Was the Ground” becoming gospel classics. Check out “God Don’t Never Change” for a taste of his spiritual blues. Listen to the song after the jump.
