I got a song that I can sing

by davebarclay1954

I discovered a box-set of recordings by Sister Rosetta Tharpe yesterday while in HMV waiting for my wife to finish work. I would like to share a song with you from that box-set, if the video plays where you are please let me know what you think. The copyright is not owned by me and the song itself is quite old so may no longer be subject to copyright.

I know it may seem strange for an atheist like me to post a gospel song but I have recently discovered Sister Rosetta and she was an amazing guitarist, with a beautiful voice and she lifted my spirits this morning when I was listening to this song.

I was introduced to her music by a very reliable source for me of new music, Jools Holland. He knows more about R&B and blues than anyone else I know and when he recommends someone I listen. So far I have not been disappointed.

I will leave you with the video, if it doesn’t play where you are, I’m very sorry but you could try doing a search on your version of YouTube for Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Nobody’s Fault But Mine. Enjoy until we meet again in the New Year I wish you all a very happy Christmas, a joyful New Year and hope that 2019 sees us all get the things which matter most, peace and love for everyone. After all, there are too many out there willing to hate without provocation so let’s try and love that hate away.
