The Messiah Will Come Again (Live)
by Roy Buchanan
#AprilMusicChallenge Day 20: A song relating to Easter.

"The Messiah Will Come Again" was written by Roy Buchanan, and first appeared on his self-titled second album. This live version from Austin, TX, in 1976 features the Master of the Telecaster on guitar and spoken vocal, John Harrison on bass, Byrd Foster on drums, and Malcolm Lukens on guitar.

If you are not familiar with the tragic story of Roy, here is his write up on Wikipedia:

The YouTube description of this version of the song, which the uploader describes as "the finest recorded version..." comes from a soundboard bootleg of Roy's performance at My Father's Place, Roslyn, NY, in May of 1979.

I like both versions, but I decided to go with the version that has video so that you can see how much Mr. Buchanan bends the strings when he plays. I saw him live in 1979 and I was amazed at his technique.

"There was a town
Strange, lonely little town, they called 'The World'
A lovely, lovely little town
'Till one day a stranger appeared
And their hearts rejoiced, and the sad little town was happy again
But there were some that doubted; they disbelieved, so they mocked him
And the stranger, he went away
Now the sad little town that was sad yesterday
Is a lot sadder today...
I walked in a lot of places that he never should have been
But I know that the Messiah, he will come again"
