Ha! I seem to have opened a can of worms but I appreciate all the suggestions -- I hadn't even heard "sho gonna run me blind" before, but I agree that that's right.
Thanks!

One of my favourites, but I haven't listened to it in a while.
Time to dig out my ipod and go for a little walk in the park for some quality listening time.

I have absolutely no idea what the mystery line might be. Perhaps some music analysing software might help, I'll ask a tech-savvy buddy of mine.

A google search for the Dallas String Band has produced some interesting and questionable results. There are claims circulating associating the band with Blind Lemon Jefferson and T-Bone Walker. One assumes this to be mere internet hyperbole, am I right to assume this?
