BLUES REVUE: "The General is Gypsy Carns, a one-man wrecking crew who plays a "stompbox" tambourine, kick drum combination, harp, and 12-string resonator guitar. This is hammering, powerful stuff, driven by Carns' energy and rough-hewn vocals. The General always liked black music. In 1954, when he was 5 years old, he saw Elvis Presley on TV with a guitar strapped on. That's it. He got a guitar, started listening to music. He listened to John R. on his transistor radio. But it was the black music, like Presley did early on, that really drew him into the blues. The album turned out really good. We did that for a few years Then we did some more country after that. Went through a 3-piece, 4-piece, but they all drifted into rock.
The General - Revelation Blues. General Gypsy Carns is a one man blues band, performing gospel blues in authentic delta blues style. Here at Cross Rhythms we’re playing catch up, firstly with his 2001 release ‘Revelation Blues’. Growling out the vocals in his own inimitable gruff style, the good General mostly pens his own material, taking in a range of subjects suited to a gospel blues singer! Mean Woman Blues gives a bluesy take on three bad Bible women and then he continues the theme on Jezebel. Other faves include the opening Prayin’ To You with its sweltering southern sound and the Blind Willie Johnson indebted Holy Man. The opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily those held by Cross Rhythms.
Em Bm C Am With your train of thought always passing here. Em Bm C Am With its falling paint, and its broken gears. Em Bm C Am It's the damn revelation blues when you see the path. Em D C And you know you won't be the last, oh lord, oh lord. G C I was more than just a terror, I was crying too. Em D But you showed me in the gusts between. G C That a wind is sometimes broken and its flying path. Em D Has no meaning no a ghost within.
Revelation Blues Lyrics. Your train of thoughts is always passing here With its falling paint, and its broken gears It’s the damn revelation blues when you see the path And you know you won’t be the last Oh Lord Oh Lord. I was more than just a terror, I was crying too But you showed me in the gusts between That a wind is sometimes broken, and its flying path That's no meaning, nor a ghost within When your talent is in hiding That your feeling is always wrong I always want to bring you something But sometimes it's just.
