Q. Who’s That Writing?

A. John the Revelator. He wrote the book of the seven seals.

And it has come to pass that the Real Mr. Heartache, who has been on a hiatus (binge) with apologies to the faithful (all seven of you), has learned that the world will surely end at 6 p.m. on May 21st, 2011. Damn, that’s really soon. Seven days in fact. One for each of you. As a parting gift you each get one song per day, thus sayeth the Real Mr. Heartache.

Song One: A Voice Crying In The Wilderness:

Who’s writing? John Revelator.What’s John writing? About Revelations. Daughter of Zion – Judea’s lion. Moses to Moses. God redeem. Bought us with blood. Moses saw Bush; book of seven seals.

~ Harry Smith, alchemist

Willie Johnson; guitar evangelist. Beat that. You can’t. That’s the best. Lye was thrown into his eyes at the age of seven. Blind Willie Johnson; guitar evangelist. Beat that. You can’t. He played the streets of Texas and who or how many he saved I don’t know, but if he were here today he would whip on these posturing posers of  the old faith. He’d bring down that rain. He’d cry out like a voice in the wilderness. He’d strike fear in the hearts of man. That’s what is missing; fear. Revelation is boogie man, we know not the time or hour and it doesn’t get much scarier than that folks. Armageddon jumping out at you from a closet? Hear that trumpet call. Are you ready to go? This is what Willie Johnson is asking of you. Are you ready to go?
