Well there's floodin' down in Texas All of the telephone lines are down Well there's floodin' down in Texas All of the telephone lines are down And I've been tryin' to call my baby Lord and I can't get a single sound
Well dark clouds are rollin' in Man I'm standin' out in the rain Well dark clouds are rollin' in Man I'm standin' out in the rain Yeah flood water keep a rollin' Man it's about to drive poor me insane
Well I'm leavin' you baby Lord and I'm goin' back home to stay Well I'm leavin' you baby Lord and I'm goin' back home to stay Well back home are no floods or tornadoes Baby and the sun shines every day

Chris from Harrison, ArThose of you outside the US that have a limited exposure to blues guitarists like Stevie should definitely check out some stuff by Jimmie Vaughan, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker, Albert King, and Guitar Slim, just as a start. It was guys like them that helped shape Stevie into the virtuoso that he will be forever. Check out the SRV box set for some really great live performances that can't be found anywhere else. The first two tracks on disc 3 are probably the best live set I've ever heard and the DVD from the Austin City Limits tv show has probably the best rendition of "May I Have a Talk With You" ever recorded. If you're reading this, you won't be disappointed.
Melanie from Seattle, Wanick from australia - SRV died in 1990 (RIP Stevie) so we cant see him in concerts anymore... I was born in the wrong decade, I really would have loved to go to a SRV concert. He was so talented.
Nick from Cairns, AustraliaI've just started hearing him a few weeks ago so I started with his greatest hits. But i'm lovin what I'm hearing, you guys in texas must be lucky to have a great blues guitarist as well as gettin the chance to see him in concerts.
Carole from Sacramento, CaPersonally speaking SRV is #1 on my all time best guitarists list, above Hendrix. Hendrix was a bit too unstructured and undisciplined for my taste After SRV then Duane Allman, than Michael Schenker. Just my taste personal taste.
Blake from Tahlequah, OkIm pretty much going through every stevie ray song on here saying that he is the best man ever to pick up a guitar. I pitty the fool who has never heard his work. The world is a lesser place without him he is the number two person I want to meet. Right behind jesus!!
Ed from Lake City, Flstevie is the greatest guitarist ever. his version voodoo chile is a lot better than hendrix,s
Brad from Hickory, NcSRV was a god of guitar making that Strat send sounds of heaven on earth bending strings and blasting notes so pure into our psyche.
He died too sound.
The Sky Is Crying.

Brad from Sartell, MnThis song is amazing. SRV will live on forever. His music and playing style is proof of that. This man would be drenched in sweat, with his eyes closed just playing his heart out. Not for fame or glory, or his paycheck, but just blasted away on that old strat for us fans. He truly adored each and every one of us.....just listen. Thank you Stevie for giving us this music to enjoy for years to come. We truly miss you man.
Joe from Lbuquerque, NmStevie is surpassed only by Jimi Hendrix as the greatest guitarist ever, Stevie had a natural ability that some are just born with and this song shows it.
Bobpape from Austin, TxYeah, I agree with Kenny! Before he became nationally famous, I saw Stevie Ray ( with Double Trouble) at local Austin clubs for only a cover charge! I even saw a couple of his free concerts at the lake! You just knew that this guy was gonna be a national hit some day! By the way, I believe it was Eric Clapton, right after Stevie's last concert, who called him the greatest blues guitarist that he'd ever heard.
Kenny from Wilmot, Nhwhy is there only one song here? he's got a whole library of songs that kick a**!!!probably the best guitarist ever.PERIOD!!!
Sara from Austin, Tx*bows* Stevie is my God. guitarists like me can only dream of reaching half his level of greatness. why did he have to leave us so soon?
"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
At the end of "Love Bites" by Def Leppard, there are some vocals that are hard to understand. It was rumored that they were: "Jesus of Nazareth, Go to Hell." It is actually producer Mutt Lange saying "Yes it does, Bloody Hell," with a thick British accent.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
