Give it to Stevie for baring his soul on this one. Such as great song preceding such a great tragedy. Here to all struggling with addiction. Know there is hope.

When you listen to this song, you can't help but be moved. My favorite song by SRV. The message in his lyrics reach out to so many people.

I agree with Geoffrey. One of the very greatest. I dont know if its good or bad, but I got to see him live at his last concert, it was a great show.

In reflection on this entire album, this is a very telling tune. It is one that has brought tears, both of joy and sorrow. One of the greatest bluesmen to have ever strummed a guitar. Stevie, since I first heard you in 1983 I have been an admirer. "Livin a dream", you sure did; and you lived it well, too.
